There is a combiner module file for using in conjunction with the Tyranids (vs 0.51b) and the Black Templars (beta 5) mods included in the extracted folder,
but you will NEED these 2 great mods installed separately.

I have some new code to sort the UI for combining tyranids 0.5b2, but until the other issues with the new tyranids build are fixed (AI, and multi-sync problems), I'm holding fire and suggest anyone who want's to combine with codex uses the 0.5b1 build. When the AI and sync are sorted, I'll update codex to work with the new influence resource stuff.

Pentakill Nov 4 2012 replied:

Mind you, every DoW before DoW2 uses only a single core of the RAM processor at any time, getting more then a single core (Duo, Triple[oddjob] and Quad) will not add any more speed.

The thing is to know how to twick the DLL's in order to change the CPU usage to a lil' bit higher.
