Miscellaneous

File Name Description
omegamanual.pdf Omega Game Manual The Omega game manual. Scanned and saved in PDF format by The Underdogs.
prndsk.zip Print 2 Disk DOS utility to redirect printer output to a file. Very useful for capturing simulation statistics. If this utility doesn't work for you, you can find other printer redirection tools here.

Source Code Utilities

This is a collection of tools (source-code only) written for Omega. I think they were originally written for the Amiga version of Omega but should for the DOS version as well.

    FLD file
  3. fld4bmp - creates a full size bitmap map from a
    FLD file, along with a strip on the right side
    with the text of a text file (a tank AI source
    listing, perhaps) in the standard Omega font.

    new one

    variables along with their unique numbers
