Ultimate Apocalypse Mod

News - Until THB Release part 2!




Video News Above:

Mod Progress

Going well. We have 1 major thing to do (Will take the longest time):

  • Finish Inquisition Daemonhunters faction.

We have 3 moderate things to accomplish (Moderate amount of time):

  • Continuation of bug hunting and play testing

Then release. Don't ask when.

Edit: May 5th, 2015:

Lord Cylarne (creator of UA mod speaks): Well. :D Looks like I wanna do a 200 subscriber special!! This... is unexpected, awesome, motivating, I feel blessed, and I mostly want to thank YOU, each and every single person for watching my videos, and especially for those who subscribed!

I mean here I was less than two weeks ago working my butt off trying to achieve just 100, and it took me a month to do. I was expecting... not this and it is remarkable. I was expecting to get 200 subs in two months, 300 in three months, etc. but I come on today and I AM FULL OF JOY!

Thank you guys for enjoying (at least some) of my content. I dunno what to post for my 200 subs special because I thought I'd not get there this month so I didn't really put any thought into it, but, I'll think of something...

But yeah anyway, I'll shutup now. Again thanks for 200 subs!

THB release and what it is:

THB stands for "The Hunt Begins". It is a grand release of 2015, not a patch, and the version number will be much different than 1.74, we're talking around version 1.8. The Hunt Begins is all about the Inquisition Daemonhunt versus the evil and twisted Chaos Daemons! All factions will receive new content, and there will be so much added to it, that took us over a year (almost) to achieve.

We know we said that THB would not take too long to get released, but fortunately, it is another 1.73 release as it is BIG, and even includes two new factions to play! All races were further polished and made nicely, plus what THB will bring is pretty much finished skirmish and is the last and final skirmish overhaul. It is official.

Version 1.73 was supposed to be skirmish overhaul and final, but then over time, we realized the flaws of most factions, and so THB revamps them to an all new and fun style. We know you will like all factions, at least better than 1.73, and we hope to continue the campaign after this! :D So THB release, full skirmish overhaul with two new factions. FUN! NExt grand release afterwords? Campaign and stuff. We'll see how it goes.

Keep in mind THB grand release will not be perfect. There will be bugs to fix afterwords like 1.73 release, and we hope to continuously patch it and patch it just like 1.73 versions. Only this time, you guys will have everything, so whatever we offer, you guys get immediately! :D - A clarification of what THB is.

In Other News:

Do not discuss or ask for release dates (even though it might be coming this month of May):

Here is why:

  1. If a promised release date is given and does not come out, the hype will be for nothing.
  2. Time Zones. If a date was to be scheduled on say, the 19th, and it is the 20th in your area, this will make confusion on the other side of the planet.
  3. We have no idea when the mod will be released. Mods are time consuming, and large projects like this will take time to polish and make a wonderful release out of.
  4. We are remaking and implementing two fully functional new factions from scratch!!!
  5. We are revamping the skirmish gameplay completely in the THB Grand Release.
  6. We are revamping the AI completely in the THB Grand Release.
  7. Mods take time to make. Less people demanding, the more the creator is inspired to work on the mod.
  8. Keep these 7 reasons in mind the next time you want to ask for release dates...

Welcome to time zones :p
I'm in Argentina, so I get the last 4 hours of each day/Earth rotation cycle/however-you-want-to-call-it. But I'm all cool with you. At least you understand time zones are a thing.
Not only some peeps don't, but some will even refuse to listen any explanation about how Earth being round makes the whole planet be at the same time of the day physically impossible.
Yes, I've actually dealt with that back when UA had release dates.

Well, not... quite. The UA-specific code (which is why most people who play UA like it) is from Cylarne, who's 'murican xD
My part is "just" a few of them icons, community management, the installer packaging, download mirrors setup, that kinda thing. Afaik I'm actually the only Latin-american team member xP
The UA team itself is scattered around many countries though. Cosmocrat (who made many of UA's fancy stuff, such as the Reaver titan for example) is from Germany, Gambit (in charge of the Daemons mod, among MANY other things) in from Greece, we also have team members on the UK, France, Ireland, Netherlands, and so on.

Time is relative. If it releases at 11am here and it is 11pm for you, it is still released at the same moment, the difference being what your clock/calendar says. Maybe instead of "feeling sad" you can go feel a book and gain some knowledge!

Trying to get UA installed for one of my buddies, or rather updated. His last version was 1.73.5, so we grabbed 1.73.9 and extracted it. It refuses to acknowledge that it was ever updated, and stays on 1.73.5 regardless of everything we've tried. Any solution?

My advice to you, search your pc for all dawn of war mods delete them all. Un-download the game then re-download everything usually works for me. You might have mod files messing up ultimate apocalypse.

Assuming you're patching correctly there, because there's a number of ways to mess that up, such as: Extracting the patch to an incorrect directory rather than on the plain, Dawn of War Soulstorm folder, maybe he's running an ancient version of Winrar and files aren't being extracted properly, heck you might even not be extracting the patch at all xD

But yeah, assuming the rest of the patching went A-OK, sounds like his .module files aren't being replaced with the newer version for some reason. Try this (hopefully) simpler packaging for the 1.73.9 patch. Simple run, input Soulstorm directory and click 'Extract': Mediafire.com

If it doesn't work and his Soulstorm is anywhere inside the Program Files folder, make sure he's running Ultimate_Apocalypse_Patch_-_1.73.9.exe as Administrator.

Well, we did that, and now soulstorm will not open in any fashion. It crashes quickly after opening and shows the vanilla SS screen rather than the UA loading screen, and never gets past that point.

That happens when DoW attempts to load the last loaded mod and said mod's data causes a CTD (crash to desktop). Likely patching from 1.73.5 to 1.73.9 wasn't such a good idea.
Your best bet is doing a clean UA reinstall, as Cylarne suggested.

To get Soulstorm to successfully launch without reinstalling anything, go to your Soulstorm directory, find a file named Local.ini, open it with notepad and look for a parameter called "currentmoddc=", and after the =, the UA .module name. Change so it says "dxp2" (without the quotes) instead of UA to get Soulstorm to load vanilla again.
This won't fix the borked UA setup though. You need to reinstall it for that.

Your buddy installed mod very unusually. He has to copy and replace everything including .module files (which tells you the correct version of the mod) within DOW directory, not anywhere els. The mod installation offers what must be installed. But... 1.73.5 >>>>> 1.73.9 installation has a big gap. I highly suggest reinstall UA mod, delete everything first. Don't bother getting 1.73.4, 5 , 6, etc, go for 9.

What files specifically need to go? There are quite a few.
