Please read the FAQs ( before posting. Thank you. :)

New Races:

 Chaos Daemons
Chaos Renegades (The Lost and the Damned)
Grey Knights
Adeptus Mechanicus
Blood Angels
Space Wolves
Dark Angels

Expansions to the original 9 races:

Faction choices for:

Chaos Legions - 9 Original Traitor Legions and Renegades
Space Marines - Remaining 6 First Founding Legions, and 3 Second Founding Legions
Eldar - 6 most famous Craftworlds
Orks - The 6 major Clans
New units and characters for all the original races.

Installation Instructions:

1. Delete the codex folder and the code.module file in your Soulstorm directory.
2. Download both parts 1 and 2 of the Codex Base Code.
3. Extract both parts to your SS directory.
4. Download and extract Codex 3.5 to your Soulstorm directory.

5. Select “Dawn of War: Codex (3.5)” from the Game Manager.

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.

NOTE: The new races are not the same as other independently released versions, just to avoid confusion. These are the Codex versions, developed separately.

Hey everyone,

Just thought everyone deserved to know what's going on with the mod, since we've been rather quiet lately.

Unfortunately, about a month or two back, boothy had an accident, hence his inactiveness. Fortunately, he's made good recovery, and will return to work when ready. This should be relatively soon, but nothing is guaranteed.

Furthermore, deathwatch, our texturer, is having real life issues (the bane of modders). Therefore, we're unsure as to when he'll be back, but we doubt it will be any time soon.

Thanks very much of the continued suggestions (we'll get to work on them ASAP) and patience,

@deathteam15; I did that earlier and got it working. Had a fantastic game using the Lost and the Damned. Absolutely brilliant work on the mod, the sheer variety of units available is staggering!

EDIT; Meant to reply to your post with this but evidently hit the wrong button.

Hey there guys, just wanted to say I've downloaded the mod because it really does look and sound incredible. However, I've been having problems with it. I can't extract the downloaded folders to the Soulstorm directory, and extracting them in another folder and then transferring other is estimated to take five hours alone for the first part. Any ideas on what I can do?

Extra information; I'm on Windows 7, and neither WinZIP or WinRAR will let me extract the files to the Soulstorm directory.

When you say it doesn't let you, what do you mean? I'm guessing you need to disable User Account Control (Go onto Start, your user icon, 'Change User Account Control Settings', drag the slider to the bottom and click 'OK', but there may be other problems. Oh and thanks for the complements, they're appreciated. :)

It came up with error messages. But I solved it eventually by extracting all three folders in My Downloads, and then moving that folder to the Soulstorm directory. Opened up the game but it didn't have Codex mod listed. Going to install the 3.3 update and see how it works.

Yeah, it sounds like UAC needs disabling to me. Also, I don't think extracting then copying if the 3.3 patch doesn't work, then delete the Codex folder from your SS directory, disable UAC, then try extracting directly again.
