That's explicited in "PLEASE READ! - INSTALLATION!", included with the latest patches, but here it goes again:
- Go to your Soulstorm installation directory (where you extract mods to install them), by default "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Dawn of War Soulstorm", or if you have disk-based Soulstorm (not on Steam): "C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\Dawn of War Soulstorm".
- In that folder, locate a file named UltimateApocalypse.module
- Open that file with Notepad
- You'll see (among other stuff) two lines, such as the following:
//RequiredMod.5 = UltimateApocalypse_Tyranids
//RequiredMod.6 = Tyranids
- Delete the "//" from them, so you get this:
RequiredMod.5 = UltimateApocalypse_Tyranids
RequiredMod.6 = Tyranids
- Save the file
- Done. Your UA now (assuming you also have the Tyranid mod v0.5b2 installed) has Tyranids enabled. Do note you'll have to repeat this process each time you install a new version of the UA mod.
It's from Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita ("Mankind Has Declined" in English), it's difficult to describe, my best attempt is "it's like watching a lulzy dream, except you get to remember what it was about and can watch it again". Would recommend it any time.
THQ is who went bankrupt, Relic is actually still a thing afaik.
*totally not a 4 hour late correction*
It comes out with the context, but it's supposed to say "you can't expect". I mistype "can" & "can't" way too often :S
I would like to take this opportunity to clarify once again that despite the popular belief, MOD DEVELOPMENT IS NOT A LINEAR PROCESS.
Many, multiple factors (most notably real life) make development speed jumpy at best. It is when a mod developer has free time that is able to work in the mod.
Also worth noting you can expect someone to devote every second of their free time on developing a mod.
Thus, I'd like to ask y'all for patience while we deliver free content to you guys. I'm no expert on the subject, but I know enough about coding to know it isn't quite a path of roses.
Thank you for your understanding :)
The explosion is from Aldnoah.Zero though.
IMO, the best way to leave a legacy is on the minds of others.
Why make a legacy on material gain built on the ruins of others' dreams and be remembered as a selfish asshat, while being a cool guy and doing something that'll earn you a place in the fond memories of others is also an option?
Buildings and material stuff can always be torn down, but you can't delete the memories you leave on others.
There's a torrent for the 1.73 installer already (see the "Ultimate Apocalypse Downloads" bit on the latest News), or you meant something else?
Tuxedo armor... that is new.
Waitaminute. new idea = individual thought = heresy
CALL THE INQUISITION!
You're speaking nonsense. Seen any fighting scene on a modern anime? If you haven't, here are some examples: Youtube.com (character design aside, that is pure badass imo) Youtube.com (like battlesuits, but can into melee!) Now imagine that, 40k-themed.
I'd even shelf out hard cash for that. Worth noting anime DVDs/BluRays are disproportionately expensive.
Oh, I'm sure this will make many people happy.
As of version 1.73.5, we're introducing toggleable additional races to the public. It's "just" Tyranids for now, but you can toggle them (as in activate or deactivate them) as per the instructions on the "PLEASE READ! - INSTALLATION!.txt" file included with the release.
As you might've noticed, Tyranids are disabled by default (you can enable them with a quick text edit of course).
Why do this, this way, and now? Long story short, this seemed like the most optimal way to introduce the THREE additional races in the upcoming 1.74 version without requiring the fans to download 3 additional mods to get UA working.
Because that's unrelated to the mod, it's a problem on your Soulstorm game itself.
The file is a .txt (plain text document), named spdx9config, located in a folder named "Drivers" in your Soulstorm directory. Like this I.imgur.com
First, make a backup of it. In case you get a bigger problem after editing this file, restore the backup. Then, open it with notepad, and make sure the first part of it looks like on this picture I.imgur.com
Save it and your Soulstorm should no longer have that issue with transparency.
@ Jk_Lord: You mean like this? I.imgur.com
I triggered that on my end with the spdx9_config.txt file located in \Dawn of War Soulstorm\Drivers
Open that file and make sure all the following parameters have a '1' in front of them:
Once done, the document should look like this: I.imgur.com
@ Venris: Fatal Scar Error confirmed and reported.
@ Everyone: Crosslune's Add-on for UA ++works with patch version 1.73.5++, as in doesn't crash and 8 player skirmishes with varied races load A-OK.
No need. Just redownload and reinstall the 1.73.5 patch, I posted a fixed version about an hour ago.
Just updated the 1.73.5 download with a fixed version, so it now... has to go through ModDB moderator authorization again xP
Here are some alternative download mirrors for y'all
Also: ++IMPORTANT: You can toggle additional races (just Tyranids for now). READ the included documentation for more details++
OK, seems like there was some issues with testing, I'd place my money on a mixup with attrib requirements for 1.74 and 1.73 and whatnot.
Since Cylarne isn't online atm (you can blame the fact he has a life for that), I'll be working on a fix.
At least things go catastrophically bad, I should get the 1.73.5 patch functional within a couple hours.
That's a... pretty vague question. Overwrite *what*, exactly?
Assuming you mean the 1.73.4 patch notes "overwrite version 1.73 version files with this patch", it means simply install 1.73.4 on top of 1.73, as in:
- install 1.73
- install 1.73.4
If you don't have the Tyranid mod, install it as well, you'll need it for 1.73 (and the 1.73.4 patch) to run. You can get the Tyranid mod here: Moddb.com
Never mind my previous comment, I can confirm the same link is now working somehow. Which is good of course.
Nice video btw.
@Sir_scout: .exe files are Windows executable files. In simple terms, an executable is a file that runs a program when it is opened.
I would help you but your problem sounds more serious than what can be efficiently debugged via comments, also I don't have enough information on your issue.
You get an error sign of some kind? Executables just refuse to open?
If you want to receive help with this you'll need to give much more information about the problem itself.
And again, the ideal would be for you to find someone OF TRUST that can repair your computer. As in not through the internet, but a tech service person where you live.
At least that video had copyrighted music in it, which would make it prey to the corporate copyright megabully machine. Otherwise idk.
Most likely you need the Tyranid mod, you can download it here: Moddb.com
We (that'd be the UA team) can't bundle the IDH/nid mods into UA because they're made by other people, and they've explicitly stated they do not want their work reuploaded in a modified format, which is understandable and we respect.
The Daemons mod *could* be built in on UA, but that'd just make the download bigger and as of version 1.72.7, it is not required by the mod to run. You only need the Tyranid mod.
If you're worried about balance, you might wanna wait for and try version 1.73 as well, it'll feature a LOT of new changes and improvements.
@ Sir_scout: That sounds like a rather more severe issue with your Windows itself. Likely a malware infection or something of the sort. If at all possible, download and run this little program Toolslib.net
It cleans your computer from ANY of those dumb toolbars, browser hijackers (those annoying buggers that change your browser's homepage) and many other stuff antivirus programs normally don't take care of.
At any rate, not being able to run any .exe is more severe than not being able to install a mod. Unfortunately I can't fix your computer from here, but you should give getting it fixed a high priority.
@ shef2: I'm... not sure how to help you. I'm having trouble understanding your comment.
Here is some general troubleshooting:
Download and install the following:
Objective Points mod: Mediafire.com
Tyranids 0.5b2: Moddb.com
Might fix your problem.
I can't ID the source on your user icon (this one Media.moddb.com ). As in what game/media it is from. Mind letting us know?
Also, CHEERIO! Onlygoodanimes.files.wordpress.com
(go watch Katanagatari. bread/10 anime, would recommend).
Oh! And, upvotes... for EVERYONE!
See? It's THAT easy to troll them karma trolls back.
Found one of your comments during my aimless ModDB browsing, thought I'd stop by to say your username is awesome!
That is all.
Obvious photoshop. Doesn't suffer from small head syndrome.
Actually the only barrier to get the latest version of Titanium Wars is a language barrier. You gotta go to this forum post Forums.warforge.ru open the first spoiler, and on the 3rd paragraph there's a link on the word "сюда" (it'll be underlined). Said link leads to a Yandex folder. This one to be accurate: Yadi.sk
There's more though. At least on Firefox, the "Download" button that appears while hovering on the files does nothing, so you must click the filenames. That'll open a new tab, from where you can download the file in question. You're looking for "TitaniumWars SS 1.00.xx Private.rar"
There's still more however. You'll also need the password, it's available on the file named "Russian_password_for_TWM_SS", but as of build .16, it's "свобода" (no quotes).
Basically, there's no real paywall, just a buncha text in Russian. "Why post this here", you may ask?
Because people could be deceived into thinking there was no way for non-Russian speakers to obtain the mod without paying.
Why is that bad? Because the Titanium Wars mod *is NOT 100% GrOrc's work*. No matter how he tries to put it, the Tyranid mod assets? He didn't make 'em. The simply fantastic Witch Hunters mod models & textures? He didn't make 'em either. Heck and how to forget about the PoK/FoK mod assets? These and many, MANY more.
So if you're going to donate to a mod, let it be to show your actual appreciation to what makes that mod unique, not to gain access to the contents MANY *other* mods brought to the game.
Aw man. I'm getting my daily dose of loss of faith on mankind this early today?
I thought mismatches on UCS files did break multiplayer sync. Is there a way to prevent this?
Your texture data is most likely OK, corrupted model data normally shows itself as pink boxes/textures.
I'd say it's a quirk on the model, it just was made that way by the author(s). But since it's something not really noticeable outside army painter, I doubt it'll be addressed anytime soon.
