Welp, you made it. A PSA directed mostly to you (still applies to everyone though)
@ The Elite One:
Well, I lurk here a LOT since it's sort of my "job" in the UA team, so I can tell you there's one if not more really spiteful user(s?) who downvote every comment in this comment section, regardless of the comments' contents.
But I've indeed noticed you in particular are getting an exceptional amount of downvoting and overall disapproval.
I'll correct timbuk here and say not that you're (currently) causing the problem, but (imo) it was mostly a PAST friction between your general actions and posting being... inflammatory for the 40k community here at ModDB, something for which evidently a number of users resent you.
Then again, re-opening the wound won't really help. If we were at a healthy, calm place where we could fix this properly, maybe. But this is a place where about anyone in the internet can post. Gotta choose your words carefully.
If you're fully past the "GodEmperor-ish" username and all that stuff that frankly, wasn't cool, then you don't need to "prove it" or anything. Basically just do your best to be constructive and not a nuisance.
There's people who can hold on to their grudges for a frickin' long time, so it won't be a smooth ride though.
Remember: You don't need to take care other people's hate problems.
also, @ haters in general: I don't see the gist of hate, I mean hating only reduces yo quality of life and expected lifespan, and I'm fairly sure that still won't affect whoever you're hating in any way. Basically you get the losing end with hate.
@ timbuk: I've deleted your comment because personal attacks are not cool but furthermore, not allowed in this comments section. Yeah, it wasn't a severe attack or anything, but still.
Nothing personal btw.
P.S.: The Elite One, don't incite attacks on you either. That kind of post will be deleted as well. Again, nothing personal. Just tryin' to keep them comments neat and not drama-y.
Oh, sense of humor will differ from person to person, that's a granted.
So I'll risk entering debate grounds in the humor group here and say I don't find unwanted children in the least amusing.
Though that's likely due to the conditions where I grew up and live, which differ from person to person. In my case, I grew up with this annoying developmental disorder that makes it needlessly difficult to... anything social, at least I get to decipher most logical things almost immediately though. So I honestly feel bad for them poor autistic sods.
Imagine not only having very poor control over a good chunk of your own thoughts, but that control vanishes as soon as anything puts some stress on you. But your "real you" is still in there, trapped in that tangle of directionless thought circuits. But most people only mock you for something you were born with and barely have any control over. The pretty much nonstop contempt from all directions, plus in many cases lack of contention from your own parents and/or family quickly corrodes your sanity and by the time you're a teenager you just don't give a damn about nothin'. Full of hate for a world that only scorned you from birth, you do what any human does in such a situation:
Give hate and contempt back to others. It's about the only thing you knew, so it's your only way to communicate anyways.
From what I understand, being autistic is something among these lines.
Thanks you for reading btw. Hopefully we can eventually make the world a slightly better place by not treating others like **** just because they're different.
P.S.: The ambulance joke made me chuckle xD
Call me boring, old-fashioned or whatever, but a legitimate question shunned while an empty answer with no further argument than "because" approved kinda makes me lose a bit more faith in mankind.
I seriously don't get the joke btw. It's supposed to be funny just because it has the words "doesn't understand", "autistic" and "rage" in it?
If so, wow you guys are easy to please. Also you should read up *from serious sources* on autism.
This comment thread exemplifies one of the little known problems a DoW modder faces when coding attributes in a rebalance mod: Gotta keep them biases out, and the balance in.
It's difficult (if not impossible) to reach a "sweet spot" that'll satisfy everyone because 40k is all about exaggerated, over the top war, and the stories about it are no exception. Some of the "stereotypes" this creates are:
- Guardsmen are ALL conscripts and can't be armed with anything better than the cheapest lasguns available. One lasgun per every three soldiers, of course.
- Guardsmen armed with mere lasguns take out even the heaviest of infantry... just mass like 200 of 'em flashlight gunners, one will score a critical hit.
- At the same time, IG special weapon squads are armed entirely with the best weaponry the Imperium can afford giving to non-inquisitorial personnel.
- Kasrkins are as powerful if not more than standard issue space marines.
- Space marines being able to take on a whole small army each and come out of the fight not only alive, but in many cases with only minor injuries.
- At the same time elsewhere in the galaxy, space marines instantly die to hotshot lasguns.
Needless to say you cannot have all of these in a DoW mod at the same time, so a "sweet spot" must be found.
This was a rant I posted randomly because the idea crossed my head, I ain't even in charge of balancing UA lol, I just (sort of) read about the subject.
Well, this track is off to a good start alright.
If it's for feedback, the beginning has deceptively low volume imo.
Unfortunately that's about all productive feedback I can give you since I'm definitively not knowledgeable on how making music works. I just really like listening to it. And the music you make is good, which coming from someone as annoying over music/audio quality as me, is meant to be a compliment ;D
On a side note, I'll guess about everyone knows about the *very* mixed reception the SAO anime got, but while I haven't read the manga (so I can't tell firsthand), I hear the anime adaptation of SAO kind of... done goofed on aspects the manga got right. Can anyone tell me how accurate were these rumors? If that's not too derail-y ofc.
Personally I don't hate on the SAO anime, I just wish it hadn't gone so generic animu, and kept up to the hype and well thought setting it built with the first few episodes.
Nah, this needs something with more of a tragedy vibe into it.
It needs... a burial song (pun with song name fully intended) Youtube.com

Makes sense to me. I mean, anyone with common sense would've seen a guy who spent THAT much on Apple iCrap can't possibly be good at personal finance.
Now that's some priorities right there.
This doesn't make me smile. It makes me feel sad about the fact people can be THIS ignorant.
Except, you either have lan mode OR access to the online servers.
Lan is available only to the non-Steam installs of Dawn of War, since when DoW was updated through Steam, Sega also removed any multiplayer options that wasn't online.
This led to a breach between people who had Soulstorm on Steam and people who didn't, as they now have different versions of the game, and are unable to play with each other.
Players with legitimate non-Steam copies of Soulstorm *should* be able to validate their game on Steam and get an online-enabled copy of Soulstorm, though.
However, some of us really like the advantages offered by lan tunneling over Steam, such as rarely if ever "hiccups" disconnecting players for a couple seconds, and lower latency.
Ohh, I see the problem. He added a period at the end of the sentence (which in this case ended with a link), breaking the url. Here's the same link but working: Gamewatcher.com
Looks like a nice map alright. Given the AI in DoW reacts what the map gives it to work with, a specific map making a specific race AI (Necrons in this case) run better is entirely plausible.
Oh that's new one. MAYBE you had an old version of WinRar? afaik, WinRar uses 7-zip's own code for .7z files, but as they're different software, they aren't updated at the same time and the WinRar version you had was running outdated 7-zip code.
Can you tell me which version of WinRar you were using? It'd actually be very useful info.
After *every* match? 0.o
What is the reasoning to do that? I mean, why would the vanilla game files get corrupted/damaged by merely playing online?
Doing a game cache verification when stuff isn't working can't hurt though (unless you're on monthly capped internet bandwidth).

The only reason I put the Tyranid mod before UA in the installation order on my guides, is because the Tyranid mod has an older version of Objective Points, and installing UA afterwards makes it so you get a more recent version.
Worst case scenario you'll have pink boxes instead of strategic points and such. If that's the case for you (or you have any issues with strategic points/critical locations/relics), install this lil' mod to fix it: Mediafire.com
That link is kept up to date to the latest version of Objective Points, so you can go always to that same link to check for updates.
Which win conditions are you using? Auto Reinforce, High Resource Rate and High Starting Resources are known for causing sync errors in multiplayer, and should not be used for online play.
Try playing with a basic win conditions setup, just Apocalypse Rules, Annihilate and (if you want it enabled) Game Timer. Then add win conditions until finding the culprit.
On a related note (do NOT quote me on this though), there's a chance High Resource Rate and High Starting Resources could be fixed for multiplayer on the next release.

Hore frying carp. I was expecting a static model showcase or somethin' of the sort. Expectations: VASTLY exceeded.
These are some top notch animations man, awesome stuff. And you made the Eren model as well? :O
Super added to ModDB updates feed.
1) The Soulstorm race unlocker works unless:
- Your Soulstorm installation location doesn't match with the InstallLocation value in the registry (or the value is missing altogether)
- Your system is missing a runtime required to run it
Make sure you have .NET 4.0, iirc it's required for the unlocker. As long as you download it from the Micro$oft site, can't hurt to install it anyways.
Here's a download link for good measure: Microsoft.com
- You need version 1.0 of the unlocker instead of version 1.1
Version 1.0 can be found on the attachments on the 1st post of this thread: Dow.4players.de
- Or you're simply using the unlocker wrong or something to that effect :p
2) The LAN button will not return, not until Sega changes their company policies on that matter.
If you want to play online with friends who do not have Soulstorm on Steam, you'll have to use your 1.20 install of Soulstorm. You will also need to change the registry value pointing to "where Soulstorm is" so you have all races unlocked in your 1.20 install.
The registry value itself can be accessed with Regedit (accessible from the Start menu, or hit 'Win+R', then type "regedit" and click OK), and is located in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\THQ\Dawn of War - Soulstorm
If your system is 32bit, omit the "Wow6432Node" from that path.
I tried coming up with a name but I'm just bad at it xP
At least I'll leave something you can use to come up with cool sounding name stuff Translate.google.com
Sent you PM, sorry for the delay btw :P
Should we get a model we're A-OK to use, then most likely yes.
Otherwise it's on the long list of "units it'd be cool to have but there's no model for 'em".
