Oh. Not sure if the specific color schemes you had can be recovered BUT, there's plenty of army painter color scheme packs available.There's one in the UA add-ons, even.
If you already have these installed but want the additional color schemes to be available in "standard" UA, move the 'badges', 'banners' and 'team_colours' folders from "UA_Addons\data\art" to "UltimateApocalypse\data\art".
If you don't have the add-ons and don't want to download that hueg file just for them color schemes, I've just uploaded the color schemes for ya: Mediafire.com Simply extract to your Soulstorm directory, run UA, and yay more color schemes!

The core, "standard" UA or UA + Tyranids?
Core UA should work directly after installation (simply load it from the Game Manager on the Main Menu), but since it's a very large mod with many things that can be messed with guessing is difficult.
My two best guesses are (assuming UA version 1.73.9):
- Download this and extract it to your Soulstorm directory. Might fix the issue: Mediafire.com
- If you had a version of UA previous to 1.73 installed, manually delete (do NOT use any uninstaller) both folders and .module files named "UltimateApocalypse" and "UltimateApocalypse_Tyranids". Then reinstall, and it should work.

UA + Tyranids requires the Tyranid mod to function, plus a small tweak on a .module file. Download the Tyranid mod here: Moddb.com
Finally, here's a download for the already tweaked .module file. Just place it on your Soulstorm directory *after* installing the mod: Mediafire.com

There's also a demonstrative UA installation video here: Youtube.com

If still can't get it working, I'll need you to help me out with a debugging log file from your comp. You'll have to:
- Launch Soulstorm, try loading UA (triggering the error), then close Soulstorm.
- Navigate to your Soulstorm directory, and locate a file named "Warnings.log"
- Either:
· Upload the file itself on Minfil.org
· Open it with notepad, and make a paste in Pastebin.com
- Either of 'em will do. When done, link your results back here.

Have you *tried* installing 7-zip? I'm fairly certain it works on Windows 8.
Just make sure to install the correct version (32/64 bit). Nothing seriously bad happens if you try installing the incorrect one though, in the worst of cases you'll get an error sign or the right click option won't be there.
To know if your Windows is 32 or 64 bit, right click "This PC" and select "Properties". A window with information about your system will appear, among that information it'll be if your OS is 32 or 64 bit.

Your friend has to click "Join Game" in the Dawn of War Online lobby (pictured here: I.imgur.com ), then in the "Online Join Game" screen (pictured here: I.imgur.com ), select the game you've created.

If your game doesn't show up on his end, make sure your UltimateApocalypse.module and UltimateApocalypse_Tyranids.module files' contents are THE EXACT SAME.
Any mismatch on a .module file normally means sync errors.

I'll rephrase the "want to play online?" bit from the summary:
If you've got Soulstorm on Steam, simply get online and create/join a game. The looby shows 0 players and a few other stuff but Soulstorm Steam multiplayer works as far as I'm aware.
If you've got retail Soulstorm (which in most cases is distributed via optical disk, thus "disk version"), the built-in online mode won't work, but you can use the LAN mode and a LAN tunneling app (such as Hamachi or Tunngle) to play online with other players with a similar setup.
I'm not typing down a Hamachi/Tunngle setup tutorial here because it'd take too long for a single comment and I'm too lazy to do it right now, but there's plenty of tutorials for that posted on the internet. Web searches are your friend :p

I didn't make the changes so there might be more, but basically they're an improved version of the vanilla maps. The improvements being:
- Fixed negative cover terrain, so ranged units can into targeting and firing at stuff sitting in negative cover.
- Removal of that "fog" on the horizon, so granted your camera settings support it, you can zoom out indefinitely and still see stuff.
- Something tells me there was another big thing but can't remember what.

And one reply more!
@ Guest on Nov 26 2014: That's the UA custom cursor and loading screen, due to how the game works these changes are global, as in show up regardless of what mod you run. To load UA in particular, select it from the Game manager in the Main Menu.
The file locations are the following:
cursor.tga in \Dawn of War Soulstorm\Engine\Data\Art\cursor
wxp_loadscreen_dawn_of_war.dds in \Dawn of War Soulstorm\Engine\Data\Art\ui\textures
Delete them to restore the cursor and loading screen respectively back to normal.

How to install UA 1.73.9 (latest version as of Jan 8 2015) demonstrative video: Youtube.com

@ ExodusBlood90: More than most likely your issue was related to an older version of UA, and I'm a really bad guesser, so I'll just stick to:
- Update to 1.73.9 (link in Downloads section, simply scroll up),
- Then download and apply the tweaked .module file,
- Then select "Ultimate A: With Tyranids" from your Game Manager. Presto!

@ Legoguy0410: As of version 1.73.9, you don't need any other mod, but you can enable the Tyranids by following the instructions on my previous reply to ExodusBlood.
Also, glorious open source software, for everyone! 7-zip.org If you aren't sure if you've got a 32-bit or 64-bit system, right click "My Computer" and select "Properties". A window with information (including if your system is 32 or 64 bit) will show up.

@ Guest on Nov 2 2014: Gah... this one sounds more like one for Steam support though. Try restarting Steam. That usually gets it to pull it together when it's acting weird.

@ darkword4: It IS possible, but with this method they'll be in UA rolling their vanilla stats and whatnot. Simply:
- Open your UltimateApocalypse with Notepad
- On the list that goes "RequiredMod.stuffstuffstuff", add this line at the end of it:
RequiredMod.4 = inquisition_daemonhunt
That should add the *vanilla* Inquisition Daemonhunters to your UA races roster.
Worth noting, this will break multiplayer sync.

@ nighttonio: Uhhhh I'm very, very sorry, but I can't fully understand what you mean :S
If you're having graphical problems, try lowering your graphics settings.

@ blaster24680q: The titan-scale power fist actually made it in the game, but only for a short time, as it had various issues with targeting and scale.

@ Guest on Jan 1 2015: The UA campaign feature is disabled on version 1.73 and its patches, its return is planned for version 1.75. If you REALLY want campaign mode in 1.73 you can enable it with Corsix's Mod Studio (linked at the top of this post), but you should take all sorts of bugs and likely crashes on the Campaign for granted if you do so.

@ allenduggan: We (the UA mod team) have a "no release dates" policy, things used to get pretty ugly when we did. UA 1.74 is not planned to have a campaign mode however, it will "just" feature support for two more races.

@ RichardKing: Ah, for now Ultimate Apocalypse "just" has the vanilla races and the vanilla races + Tyranids "modes", but when Daemons and Inquisition are added into the mix, all of them will be available at once if that's what the user wants.

@ Guest on Jan 8 2015: Well... the UA 1.73 "main" version (which is required for 1.73.9, this file here is a patch that goes "on top" of 1.73) does have an installer. But the best way to clear any doubts on "How do I install?" is showing how, step by step: Youtube.com

@ Guest on Dec 28 2014: WELL OF COURSE! You're more than welcome to help with new 3d assets! A few (more like several) things to take in account though: You'll need 3DS MAX 8, as the script to make 3d models only works with DoW is compatible with 3DS MAX files from up to that version. Also it can't be *too* detailed, the DoW engine isn't good at handling lotsa polygons. This and much more relevant info can be found here: Forums.relicnews.com Also feel free to ask other DoW modding community members that do 3d modeling about any doubts you have.

@ willctid: Most likely you're missing the Tyranid mod. Download it from the link on the top of this post. Also you'll need to do a small tweak to a .module file, I've linked to the tweaked .module ready to download also on the top of this post.

@ Caliph_cro on Dec 31 2014: This is just a wild guess, but is your build menu more than 4 icons wide? If things on your end are like I'm guessing here, your copy of the mod got the UI modifications borked at some point.
Best way to be sure is doing a clean manual reinstall. *Manually* delete (do not use any uninstaller) UltimateApocalypse and UltimateApocalypse_Tyranids, along with their .module files. Then, run the installer, then the 1.73.9 patch. If you want to play UA with Tyranids enabled, download the tweaked .module as well. No need to reinstall the Tyranid mod btw.
After the clean reinstall, the UI should work correctly.

@ Guest on Dec 24 2014: It is already released! All you need is Dawn of War Soulstorm, the UA 1.73 installer and (very preferably) the 1.73.9 patch on this very download (just scroll up! :D).

@ vef214: While the gist of UA is "no caps on everything" (except commanders and builders), a optional mode enabling caps on special units sounds good, I'll suggest that to the rest of the team.

@ Anxozt: IIRC, the IG map-wide speech an end-tier ability for the General, but I haven't played in a while so I might be mistaken.

@ Caliph_cro on Dec 27 2014: You ALMOST got it! Delete
RequiredMod.5 = UltimateApocalypse_Tyranids
RequiredMod.6 = Tyranids
from UltimateApocalypse.module and (assuming you've got the Tyranid mod v0.5b2) you're perfectly set-up. To enable Tyranids in UA, select "Ultimate A: With Tyranids" in the Game Manager.
If you don't have the Tyranid mod, download it from the link at the beginning of this post.

@ PhotogenicWhorse: We've decided to not add stuff like Primarchs :/
For many actual reasons, such as balancing them would be an asset hunting and coding nightmare. Assuming someone's up to the task of coding the abilities and fx for 'em, you can't just add something absurdly powerful to a couple races and let the others have a sad. Also we'd need proper models, and these are harder to get/make than you'd think. Not to mention the lore butchery should one of them be killed in battle.

I'll just copypasta a chunk from another recent reply because I'm lazy :3
Basic sync error troubleshooting includes:
- Make sure all players involved have the same version of the mod installed
- If on UltimateApocalypse_Tyranids, make sure the content of your .module files look THE EXACT SAME. Here's a reference copy: Mediafire.com
- Disable win conditions such as Advanced Overwatch and Crazy Insane, possibly Heroes. If still doesn't work, try only a "minimal" in conditions setup.
- If playing on custom maps, make sure all players have them installed on the same directory (ideally \Dawn of War Soulstorm\UltimateApocalypse\data\scenarios\mp )

The Veiled Region was the name of room number 8 back when Gamespy multiplayer servers were a thing. Now, (assuming you've got Soulstorm on Steam) simply go online, then click the create/join game buttons, depending on what you want to do. The lobby appears to have some technical issue of sorts and is permanently empty, but multiplayer and creating/joining games works afaik.

The tricky bit is you gotta find other people who also play UA in order to play UA with someone else. That's what the UA Steam group is for: Steamcommunity.com

Because you know it won't happen. Unless their build cost is increased to match such an absurd amount of power (which would make IDH kinda boring to play, mostly on the "waiting 10 min for ONE soopa expensive GK squad to be ready" part), it would make deploying any Grey Knights pretty cheesetacular on multiplayer. I mean: Deploy one basic GK squad. Send it to enemy base. Sit back and watch. Win.

You're understandably very upset, people with way too much spare time in their hands can be quite infuriating on their trolling. I know this firsthand from some least than pleasant experiences managing the crowds playing the Ultimate Apocalypse mod (some of these peeps really need to calm down).
Still, for premeditated media on a *Christian* context... too much swearing to retain credibility. Don't get me wrong, you bring completely valid arguments, I agree with you and I'm sure most people willing to negotiate (regardless of their beliefs) do as well.

On another, relevant note: An admin losing their cool and posting a video peppered with swearing is highly nutritious troll fodder, so to say. As in that's precisely what your typical troll wants.
