Dawn of War: Professional (DoWPro) is a mod for the Dawn of War franchise that has been developed over many years, and is based on the Warhammer 40000 universe. The mod aims to enhance the multiplayer experience by incorporating intelligent gameplay design and balance with the exciting and spectacular game that is Dawn of War.

No longer will units become obsolete as you gain higher tech, and no longer will you have to spam a certain 'overpowered' unit in order to win.
In DoWpro strength through diversity is promoted, and with the return of the 'hard counter' system from the original Dawn of War game, DoWPro offers the player many different choices on their path to victory.

The latest version of DoWPro is for the third and last Dawn of War expansion: SoulStorm. Boasting nine completely unique races to choose from, DoWpro: SS offers a huge amount variety.

Key Features of the Mod:

- You can now use Wargear in multiplayer and skirmish games.
- The all-famous skirmish mod and the ever useful camera mod already included.
- Exciting and fun gameplay that differs greatly from SoulStorm in ways of how you research abilities and use your units.
- New graphics and visuals for every race.
- Sizeable community of its own, and can be played through the Steam Group, Hamachi Server, or Direct-IP.
- New units for almost every race.
- You can easily switch between DoWpro and standard SoulStorm through the in-game 'Game Manager'.
- A complete and instructional set of manuals to let you know every aspect of the mod and the armies.

Requirements:

- For DoWpro: SS you need SoulStorm, patched to version 1.20. For Steam users it is required its very own latest version.

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: 3.60 Update Progress and Changelog

4 comments by H0LL0W on Sep 27th, 2014

So I guess I left this place without news, and you guys deserve it.

So first things first, 3.60 will be the Final Version, no turning back from here, so expect an even bigger polished version.

Second of all, the progress is slow as hell because we want to make sure that the AI works as better as it did from 3.59.58. Not to mention as well that the manuals are being reworked to fit in the changes done through all these versions - and yes, that also includes that Dark Eldar and Sisters of Battle will have their own manual, too.

So, you also want a changelog for 3.60 too?. Here, have at it, although it is primarly a Work in Progress:

GENERAL

- Last batch of icons totally redone for all races.
- AI completly reworked and 100% stable for all 9 races.
- Manuals totally reworked, including manuals done for Dark Eldar and Sisters of Battle.
- English tooltips totally revised (thanks to Azarael` from Mod DB).
- Fixed many inconsistencies between armor types and tooltips in-game and in code.
- Now all 9 races show (almost) all their respective units and HQs on the Army Painter section.

SPACE MARINES

- Added Black Templars as a teamcolorable army.
- Added Assault Cannon for Dreadnought as a heavy weapon option. Decreased its hardcap from 6 to 4.

IMPERIAL GUARD

- Added a healing aura ability for Kasrkin Sargeant, unlockeable on T2. This healing aura ONLY affects the Kasrkin squad.
- Fixed an issue with the fx Kasrkin Sargeant Power Sword whenever he moved.
- Fixed an issue that the Commissar did not show up his Power Sword as primary close combat weapon.

CHAOS

- Fixed the lack of icon that the Chaos Lord Desecrated Standard ability had once summoned.
- Fixed the lack of animation death for the Desecrated Standard. Now it simply dissappears without being too odd for the player.

DARK ELDAR

- Added inf_heavy_high as secondary armor for Reaver Jetbikes. Changed their formation so they can avoid possible pathing issues.

ELDAR

- Fixed the Seer Council icon not being shown properly at the Hero UI. (It used the old warlock icon which seemed to collide with the icon redone).

TAU

- Fixed the Snare Trap icon whenever the Tau Commander deployed it.

SoB

- Missionary replaced by the Sister Hospitaller. Same thing she has as the Missionary except that her weapons are laspistol and chainsword. Has Inf_heavy_med armor, limited to 2 and cannot detect infiltration units. Costs 40 Req.
- Added a new research: Lay on Hands Improved research, available from the Holy Reliquary. Costs 50/50.
- Changed the squad formation for Seraphim and Retributor squads as their previous formation caused a pathing issue whenever the player reinforced the squad.
- Changed the fx for all Veteran Superiors Power Swords in order to differenciate these from the Canoness Master Crafted Power Sword.
- Revised the Canoness and Death-Cult Assassin size model as they were not matching with the rest of the squads.
- Revised Heavy Flamers for Retributors and Celestian squads - They no longer have FoTM and do not require setup time.
- Retributor Multimelta now costs 40/10. Decreased its maximum damage to 380 from 400.
- Increased the hardcap squad of Sisters Repentia to 2 from 1. Decreased their accuracy in close combat to 0.65 from 0.8. Health reduced to 420 from 480. Armor reduced from inf_heavy_high to inf_heavy_med. Decreased squad cap from 4 to 3.
- Changed completly the Death-Cult Assassin - Now has inf_heavy_low instead of Comander, 450 HP, decreased her accuracy in close combat from 0.8 to 0.65, cannot spot infiltration units, uses squad cap 3 and limited to 2 squads.
- Celestians no longer have the Infiltration ability.
- Decreased the cost of the Storm Bolter for Battle Sisters to 40/15 from 50/20. Decreased to 0.6 from 0.65 of maximum accuracy.
- Decreased the Energy cost of Canoness to 40 from 45. Decreased the overall cost of the Jumpack to 40/30 from 50/60.
- Laud Hailers ability from Immolator removed, now the Repressor Tank gains it.
- Removed the Confessor aura, instead he gains the leadership aura that increases the regeneration speed of Faith points. (it is the same aura as Veteran Superiors grant).

Hey, would it be difficult for me to proofread and correct the tooltip text? Just to give the final release that polished feel.

Could you please elaborate further?. From what I know, the tooltip size is related to the resolution size of your screen.

I refer to the .ucs files in the Locale folder. I want to correct the entries that are misspelt and have bad grammar. If I were to do that, would you be interested in the files?

Finishing the others soon.

A note: Dark Reapers are limit 2, but the tooltip text for the unit themselves states that they are limit 3. I've compared my changed file to the original and it's the same in there.

Heya

Everything seems to work fine, but I have two niggles;

1) There seem to be additional sound effects added during combat, these are kinda cool but they're also somewhat jarring (Hearing explosions when there are none for example). is there a way to disable these?

2) The Sisters of Battle appear to be missing entirely, I have updated to the latest version but they still do not appear. I notice when patching up the Witch Hunter files are being placed at the very least but the faction just doesn't appear in the army painter or army selection when preparing a game.

1) Those are the ambient sounds which were present on the vanilla Dawn of War, but for some reason they were removed in the subsequent expansions.

2) Did you make sure to extract 3.59.58 in your Soulstorm folder?.

Forgot to add (******* 5 minute edition bullcrap):

1) Those ambient sounds cannot be removed from what I remember (someone could prove me wrong though).

2) If the SoB dont appear in the Army Painter or in the Army selection that means you did something wrong, thus, you must be playing 3.59.

Fixed 2. I noticed for some reason that whenever I 'moved' the files from the rar it never asked to replace anything, so I extracted first then moved them. Sure enough it replaced a bunch of stuff and now the sisters are in!

As for 1, I suppose I can get used to it. The trouble is I'd like to get my friends on this (As we like DoW but we all disliked certain changes in SS Vanilla, namely flyers), but I can see the random explosion sounds getting irksome. We'll probably just get used to it, but an option to opt in or out of that re-addition may be beneficial, from a practical standpoint (as said) it's weird to hear explosions when there are none at all.

All works well now though!

About the ambient sound I can check it out if its troublesome for you. Will do some little research.

As said, I'll cope. -But- the option might be very nice for the sake of flexibility and choice for future users. :)
