F.A.Q.

- How to bring back the original camera settings?
To restore original camera, just remove the file: YourGameFolder\BTmod\Data\camera_high.lua

- Sometime, my Crusader squads ignores my command to retreat and continue to kill, figth and die! What I do wrong?
This is the codex feature of Black Templars faction, named Righteous Zeal. You should learn how to benefits from it, or avoid and minimize losses.

Theres only few things that slightly disturbs me in this otherwise amazingly,super quality mod.
First would be little bit too harsh strong german or which accent of units. xd
And the second is too big zoom, which I cannot not used to,
no matter what resolution I try.

To restore original camera, just remove setting file, placed at \BTmod\Data\camera_high.lua

Harsh strong german accent was made on purpose. Black Templars in W40K uses german archetype, german-like names, etc. So those voice actors were chosen specifically. The same, as for Crimson Fists we called on Spanish-speaking actors. More info here Forums.revora.net

Wow, thank you. A real lifesaver.
Tau has asian accent? I always thought they have some arabian or something accent. xd
Its worth to download them all just to hear those accents :D
Minor third problem is that units speeches are too often, set on too high priority
(like I read it is with Canoness chainsaw in Bugfix mod) and it sounds like they stand behind me, which frightens me to death.
Hmm, I'll try to lower speech volume next time. xd

I don't know whether it's the game or there are some problems. When I was playing in the BTmod or in the Search and Rescue mod, the reinforcement of a squad tend to be turned off automatically once a while and there are reinforcement available. Meantime, the action taskbar disappears when BT are in combat. Is this a problem or is this the game default?

This is made on purpose. This is not a problem, but the gameplay feature (predefined disadvantage) of Black Templar faction basic infantry.

The is the effect of Righteous Zeal, when one of brothers is killed, others will fight harder, ignore more damage, but became uncontrollable for some time. Only the presence of person of great authority, like attached Chaplain or Castellan, can change this.

From the gameplay perspective, BT have benefits in melee, so that is balanced by other ways.

It also was covered in tutorial Youtube.com

Not bad voice acting tbh its less annoying than one on other mod but taking the fact that creator is not professional voice actor and does not have professional equipment and software he/she did a good job. and mod it self is not bad either I like the intro and music when installing this mod.

Yes, I'm aware about that textures are bit outdated. Only most recent BT unit(s) like FOK's mod terminator model has good ones.
Unfortunately, I have zero skills in 2d arts, and black templars race aren't so popular to attract artistic people attention, who could assist.

I am sure if you ask around you will find artists to aid you with the graphics I wish you luck with that.

It's not hard doing a texture once a base one is made. Yet it is hard to make a really detailed texture unless you just copy chuncks from other things. Still i never felt the BT textures where significantly outdated/low quality. But that is just my opinion.
