Thread on Relicnews forum - old TWM-forum.

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. DoW1 is very old game now without any support from Relic. TWM is not guilty...
Methods of solution:
1. Under Win7. Edit the exe-file of the game in accordance with item 2.8 of the Titanium Wars FAQ, or download the exe-files here from ModDB already edited by GrOrc.
2. Under Win7 without editing the exe-file. Use DoW in compatibility mode with Win98/Me. Save game in the end of Stronghold mission (before outro). Exit from game. Change mode to Win98/Me in properties of TWM-shortcut. Start game (TWM). Load campaign-savegame. Finish mission. You'll see metamap as reward in this mode. Save game on metamap, exit from game, and swith TWM-shortcut to WinXP mode or Win7 mode. Note: Do not use Win98/Me mode for play constantly. Sometimes game works incorrectly in this mode. Use it only for resolving this problem.
3. Radical method: Don't play TWM under Win7 - play it under WinXP 32 bit. No such bugs in campaign there.
4. Another radical method (requires a powerful computer): Install WinXP under Win7 by using Windows Virtual PC. Look on Microsoft for this ("Windows XP Mode"). Play TWM under WinXP emulation.

This is an awesome mod just wondering how up to date it is with current Codex's as it looks like the Necron Codex was the last major change to a faction.
Thanks for an awesome mod

I can't get this mod to work. The loading screen just before the main menu says titanium wars under the "Dark Crusade" text, but there are no changes at all. No new units or anything. There's also nothing in my game manager button. I did as the readme said. Am I doing this incorrectly?

I love this mod - it makes this game (I play on hard) preaty goddamn hard. Great mod! :D

Beating a enemy strongehold is a great challenge - when I first tried attacking Space Marines even with a full Honor Guard (I had 2 sentinels, which I upgraded with Auto Canons which were good against Space Marine infantry, and a Leman Russ) I got curb stomp preaty hard - they were just keep coming and never stop. The best way to win on Strongholds is too take over the relic as soon as possible, destroying every base in the way, and build a Titan. Titan = sure win... Which makes me wonder - GrOrc you should ad some anti-titans weapons for the defenders, since when I got that Warhound of mine Space Marine had nothing to stop that.

Oh and that custom exe of your for win7 works like gold! The game too this point crashed only once :D

SM Stronghold is not so hard. First stage -- passive defence and gathering strong army. Then kill left base, take center of map, take landing point on North (in any sequence). After that only main SM base will attack player base. Strike toward Relic base and finally attack main base.

Yeah, I did so. But on my first walkthrough I tried it like in vanilla DC - first taking off the relay and cuting of the reinforcement. But after I managed to kill those two objectives... they started sending more guys against me! I mean WTF? What was the point of cuting off their reinforcement?

I also cannot extract the mod by you that allows the use of extra memory. 7zip just says it cannot extract it.

I tried using WinRAR, but it just comes up with the same errors that it could not find the installation path. Such a shame because I really enjoyed this mod.

If WinRAR unable to extract then you have bad archive. Just redownload it. People have no problem with my archive files.
