Dawn of War II Music Add-on

News

I'm working on a standalone patch, or an addon to the next release of the Combiner Mod, that allows for the soundtrack of Dawn of War 2 to be played alongisde that of the original Dawn of War 1 and its mods.

The original soundtrack of DoW2 vanilla was released for free some years ago and can still be downloaded here: Fileplanet.com
Although the complete soundtrack encompassing the game's expansions is now being sold from various online stores.

The soundtrack can also be extracted directly from the game's files. Some dudes did that, converted it in mp3 format and put it up for download:
Forums.relicnews.com
Forums.relicnews.com
Forums.relicnews.com

Now, I've already managed to make this work on my PC, but what I'm trying to accomplish is to provide an easy - or possibly, automated - way to take the mp3 files downloaded from the above sites, convert them in DoW1's format, place them in DoW1's music folder, and have the game play them besides the original music tracks. I don't know how difficult it's going to be yet. Also, I'm pretty sure I cannot put the music files directly in any mod or downloadable package.

Anyway, what do you guys think? I know most people prefer DoW1's music, but I think at least some tracks from DoW2 are just awesome. My favourites are "No Mercy, No Respite" (Youtube.com) and "The Great Devourer" (Youtube.com).

@ All the DOW II Modders out there:
Please STOP mixing Tau Units with other Races! I am also a great fan of the tau and i miss them to. But there are only 2 ways to add them: You replace a FULL Race with the Tau. Including all Units, Banners, Icons and buildings. Or you add a new faction in the game.
Mixing them is clashing with the style and hurts every Warhammer 40.000 Fan. They would call it "heresy". So PLS (!!!) stop!

The game is really good, but there are some balance issues and a lot of bugs which still hasn't been fixed, and since they stopped the updates with still a lot of unfinished big fixing I'm gonna give it a 7.

Great graphics but it didnt make the game interesting.Not so good as Dawn Of War 1.
No strategy, no base building only rushing and rushing with one squad.
