Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War delivers a level of visual detail never before seen in an RTS. Hundreds of units clash on the battlefields of the dark future, unleashing massive destruction through a stunning battery of long-range weaponry before closing in for the finish. Incredible kill animations bring science fiction combat to life like never before, and the gritty future-gothic Warhammer 40,000 setting provides a striking tableau for the chaos and carnage of this grim, dark future, where there is only war!

they need the maps to play, and no im not from america... im from Canada :D and i do play my own aps, mainly against computers, sometimes with friends with my LAN, after i get months map pack done ill probably sit back and play some DC online. The main reason i havent really played it much online is ive been busy with school, making maps, and trying to get used to the crons that i havent really had time to play online. But this month were a little ahead of schedule so ill probably get some time to play some of my maps online... if anyone has them downloaded ;) hopefully they will :D if they dont then... :(

btw, if you were planning on getting a ps3, then do it, they is awesome *my precious* lol


p.s. head over to dawnofwar.fiilefront.com if you like necron tomp like maps ;) cus mines up and so far the ranks are looking good ;) jk, jk, btw... its called "The Awakening" ;)

Ultramarine_40000 Dec 1 2006 says:

ya, i wouldnt bother with trying to put units and stuff in the game, you need a whole nother program called 3csmax 7 to make models, but then you have to code them. And as for the thing your talking about capturing a point, and then you get units. You have to know how to do scar coding, which i dont know how so i cant help you with that right now. Ill probably try and learn it in the future sometime.

My username online is _Ultra_, but im not really online ever, im either busy playing my ps3, or making maps for DOW.

what you can do, is save other peoples maps, and then fool around with them and try and fiure out how they did stuff, and learn from it. Hope i helped some

nope, this isnt my job, im only 14 yeers old and am doing this for fun and for the community, and dont save them to the dark crusade root folder. You must save them to the normal dawn of war root folder, then copy them to your dc folder. Here ill put exactly what to do:

*first (once your done your map) save it to your ...\dawn of war\wxp\data\scenarios\mp\

*second -> if you want to play it in DC, then copy it ONCE IT IS FINISHED into ...\dawn of war - dark crusade\dxp2\data\scenarios\mp, not if its half done, if its only half done or not complete then keep it in your ...\dawn of war\wxp\data\scenarios\mp, you can open any maps from there. If you have a map in your ...\dawn of war\dxp2\data\scenarios\mp, and you want to open it back up and work on it again, then cut and paste it back into your ...\dawn of war\wxp\data\scenarios\mp\ folder, then you can reopen it from there and work on it in any manner you want to, then when its finished or modified, just copy it back to your ...\dawn of war - dark crusade\dxp2\data\scenario\mp\

p.s. dont worry your not pestering me, im happy being able to help anyone ;) and about the next game coming out in 2007.... you know as much as i do about it :D (nothing at all really :) )

Highest Rated (21 agree) 10/10

For 6 years now I have been playing Dawn of War. Modding it gave me that extra plus.

8/10 because it is a really good game. I am however ashamed that Relic stopped at Soulstorm.

10/10 because I always experienced something new in it.

10/10 100% warhammer

10/10 for Dawn of War I and Winter Assault campaign

7/10 for Dark Crusade and Soulstorm campaign

10/10 for your epic stories and hard work combined.

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 5/10

So much more could have been done, that was ignored during development.
Betas should of had more input.

Only saving grace is that there is a Modding community with which to complete the incomplete game... :(
