Site Resurrection

September 07, 2016

Well it's been seven years since the website was updated. I suppose it was slightly overdue. DKS is still alive and well and software development continues, although at a much slower pace. However, there are a lot of new items in the works.

On the site, I'll continue building out DA2 content and walkthrough on the Wiki page. It will take a long time, so keep checking in. DA2 version 2.0 is in alpha release. It's got a few features that need fixing, but otherwise is tons better than the version 1.2 release. And it works on modern versions of Windows. I'll say more on that in a future post. Finally, I think it is time to revisit DA1 and port it to Windows, possible mobile. It might be a fun little project, particularly for anyone who hasn't been able to play it because of its age. I still fire it up on DosBox every now and then and I'm amazed at how well it holds up (except for the horrible music).

February Updates

February 19, 2009

The latest build in the new version of DA2 has been available for over a week, but I thought I'd officially announce it in the news. It is mostly playable now, which is good. You can find it by clicking here. I've also updated the link section with a new webiste, Orbital Cows, where everyone can find tons of other games to play.

Website and Wiki

January 19, 2009

I'll start updating the website over the next few months. Most of it will remain the same because the content is still relevant, but I need to update the links and start expanding the wiki. Other players can contribute to the wiki as well. It can be found here.

Dark Ages II Version 2.0 - Coming Soon!

January 19, 2009

Well, it's been years since the last update. It seems the migration to Vista will never be complete, but Windows 7 will probably change that. As a result, DA2 needs porting yet again to keep up with the modern operating systems - so much for backwards compatibility, right? Because I'm starting all over from scratch, I'm making several changes to the game interface. You can sample what's done so far by clicking here. It is not a finished game. Many things don't work yet because they have not been programmed yet. You can read more about the new version in the forum.

Patch 1.2 is released!

July 15, 2006

The new patch is out. It fixes only a few minor bugs and provides a better menu interface when hitting the ESC key while playing. It also fixes an old crash bug that happens rarely. If you downloaded the game after July 15, then you should already be at version 1.2. You only need to upgrade if the version number in the bottom-left corner of the title screen does not say 1.2.
