Welcome to the World of epic wars on Titanium Wars Mod arena.

This is almost classic gameplay DoW Mod but with almost all GW units. If you was tired by "revolutionary revision of gameplay" mods you are welcome here. In this Mod you'll see very interesting dynamic extended gameplay with fully functional single campain, skirmish, and multiplayer. If you dream about epic Warhammer 40000 battles then this is your Mod. If you want to see all Warhammer 40000 units in one mod then this is your Mod. This Mod is a kind of a superstructure over original masterpiece from Relic and it isn't a radical revision of all gameplay ideas of DoW. Main motto of this Mod: "All Warhammer 40000 units must be in DoW!" See Mod's readme-files and visit the official forum of the Titanium Wars Mod on Warforge for more information. This is HUGE Mod. So much work was done and so much work awaits in future development!

Good luck in your epic battles in Warhammer 40000 Universe!!!

Features of this mod:

- Many-many new units and buildings. Extended tech tree.
- Many-many new abilities and upgrades.
- New Heroes and fully functional Heroes wargear.
- RPG elements from CutterShane's Heroes System. Experienced units after battles.
- Fully functional single campain, skirmish, and multiplayer.
- And finally Titans and Titan-like units!

Important remarks:

- Main goal of this Mod: all Games Workshop units in DoW game.
- This is high quality Mod. This Mod was made with Relic standard of quality (and even higher for some parts and aspects).
- This Mod was the first DoW mod when you can see Titans and Titan-like units in all game types (campaign, skirmish and multiplayer).
- This Mod changed mind of DoW Community about Titans in game (balance issue). Now we see many mods with Titans.
- A lot of work was made in this Mod framework on 3D-level and in OE-code for Relic and DoW Community models. Many units and buildings were reworked to more quality variants (behaviour especially). Titanium Wars stuff are used in many other mods now.
- This Mod is new view on DoW Dark Crusade campaign. You can see new quality of game in campaign (especially in strongholds with new scar-code scripts).

Installation instructions can be found in readme files (file setup(eng).txt in Mod's folder in archive file) and/or here on ModDB local forum.

Note about known software problem under Windows 7: Known problem with campaign playing. Old DoW engine is not truly compatible with Windows 7. (Maybe Windows Vista and Windows 8 too. No any problems under Windows XP 32bit.) The problem is only in the end of some Strongholds in campaign. Sometimes DoW game crash after playing outro before end-mission-screen. This is software problem. Methods of solution are described in Titanium Wars FAQ item 2.11. Please read and use one of these methods.
Note: Steam version of DoW (ver.1.3) do not need methods like 1 and 2.

Hello. What attracted me to this mod was that is that you can use it during the single player campaign. Do you have to start a new campaign is it ready once its loaded?

TWM contains improved campaign on board. Read Titanium Wars FAQ item 3.4. This is most noticeable while playing missions in strongholds.

Sometimes some irresponsible DoW-modders or pirated editors place something into folders "W40k\Data", "DXP2\Data" by their reasons. It can lead to some errors in some complicated DoW-Mods like TWM.

Read new item -- item 2.14. -- of the Titanium Wars FAQ to resolve such problems.

I've got a problem. I have downloaded and installed the newest TWM version and currently playing the campaign. However, I got to the Hyperion Peaks and whenever I start that specific mission i get a message
Fata Scar error-Executuion paused. Can anyone help me?

Firstly try to reinstall the Mod by deleting all Mod's files. Install the Mod from newest archive. Latest version for DC is 1.00.31.

If you'll see the error message again - press "Control+Shift+Grave" in game (console will appear) - take screenshot by PrtScrn - and send me by E-mail or PM. Screenshot must contain strings in console with important info for me. Make picture enough quality in order to read these strings.

To ShasOMonLa. After analysing your report I can say: Do not extract files from vanilla game in Mods folders. Your error is strange. Your game uses un-modified maps in campaign.

Additional note: TWM_DC works with DoW_DC ver.1.20 (CD/DVD version). No guarantee for Steam version.
