Hello Everyone

Can anyone explain me why there is no information about this modification in whole internet. I really was searching very deeply and found nothing (maybe I'm blind, but in this case, I don't think so). I just ran into him completely accidently, while doing our project of updating all mods to the newest versions in our Download. I found it in the Scheinworld archive. It was in strange parts, but I found it how to properly connect and run.

After while of playing I have to admit, that this mod is awesome (generally it is based on Demise of Man), whole new world, massive futuristic weapons and items, new enemies (with fantastic animations), new story and a lot of more. I have already wrote some information (here is translated by Google)about this mod. Below is whole mod, prepared and ready to download. Just copy and paste on clean install of JA2.

ALIEN OVERLORD

If really exist in Your forum a proper topic for it, then sorry and please delete this one or move to it.

As far as I know DOM Overlord is still a WIP and a sequel to DOM. Then again Callahan has been updating DOM more recently too, and even mentioned a more dedicated 1.13 version further down the pipeline.

I gave Overlord a crack, but felt a little lost, but it only gave me more incentive to play the original DOM which is immense fun and quite different from any other mod I've played.

Both of these mods deserve more exposure.

Speaking of 1.13 conversion, there is a DOM folder in the Wanne's TODO subfolder in his SVN branch.

I think DOM did come with a 1.13 version, but it's very out of date now.

Lockie's updating the DOM post on the Mods download and install guide. Hopefully some links can be updated when Callahan produces a newer version, as I know he's been editing lately and ironing out some bugs.

Overlord uses it's own maps, unique to that mod, the game won't work with DOM maps. Overlord's maps are very bare, mostly of red planet desert and Strogg installations. They don't look like any other JA map.

If you still have problems locating or using Overlord maps, give me a shout here and I'll post up a zip somewhere of the files I have.

For some reason I don't think DOM: Alien Overlord has ever been officially released, unless someone knows different on some of the German boards, which is why it's had a sketchy presence here at the pit. It should have a page on here, if an official download was available.

Callahan is still updating the original DOM (new exe available here soon) but I don't know the status on Alien Overlord.

To become endorsed by the Pit a mod needs to have representatives here for support. At least for its launch.

Well that would be Callahan, but as mentioned before I don't think Overlord for whatever reason has ever been officially released to the public.
