HOW TO INSTALL AND PLAY DoW 40K destroyer mod

Starting a mod Tutorial 7 comments


I have seen alot of people having problems with this so i would like to show you the way i have done it for steam

So to begin i would like to show the paths that they would be going to in to.

for steam its as simple as C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Dawn of War II - Retribution

so that's click on program files in my computer then to programmes x86 or whatever you have where all your files are from there click steam then steam apps then to common and then finally click your game folder just once then install to that location it should already have that destination in the installer

once it has installed go into your folder where you have just installed it

and scroll down till your find the destoyer 40k shortcut !!!!! not the application the shortcut !!!!! run that as administrator and you should load 40k destroyer.

regards ZULU

Any vehicles?

Installing this did absolutely nothing. Won't start. My steam is not on C and changing the target location does not work i get shortcut error.

For all those that couldn't install this because they changed from default directory, here is how I fixed my shortcut. Make a copy of it first onto your desktop and make sure it works before saving over original.

I installed another mod called elite which set the default path for me then I right clicked that shortcut, went to properties and copied info inside " " then opened properties on the destroyer shortcut and pasted over the target line. Only leave the extension after nonmovies so it has right name.

Then delete the info in start in box and leave it blank. After I was done it looked like this

D:\Game Programs\Steam Folder\Steam.exe" -applaunch 56400 -nomovies -modname destroyer40k

Will you guys be coming back to this since DoW3 turned out to be a giant turd that not even Nurgle himself would acknowledge?

Sorry all, I havent been on in quite some time and have been quite busy with RL. Unfortunately I probably wont be doing any further work on the mod at this time. After the addition of the necron lord for TLS it had added a new race to the library extension of the game, making it crash when selecting certain races. Where I had last left off with the mod was trying to re-do the entire mod structure from scratch, but after spending about 1 month of coding and only getting 5% done, I had given up. The only way to fix any of the crashes and issues from here on would be to continue to replace all of the coding and I just dont have the time to do that. If someone else who has experience with the dow2 coding using corsix, please feel free to start a new mod from scratch and replicate all of the coding. might take quite some time though. Thank you everyone for your support and hopefully DOW3 will be interesting enough to mod.
