Version 2.5 of the Elite Mod for Dawn of War 2: Retribution
You are welcome :)
Any changelog please ? I'm considering playing DoW2 again with this ;)
here is a link to the change log Dawnofwar.info and there should also be an article going live once its authorized with all the changes.
Ok thanks, I didn't think about the authorization time, my bad ;)
Downloading, thx for the new version.
Nice, good job !
Hey, so great job on the mod, but I'm going to bring to your attention something you apparently haven't noticed- the AI is kinda buggy. Obviously this was designed as a PvP mod so PvE isn't your focus, but there are some serious bugs in the AI when played by the computer, the most egregious being their complete inability to capture activated power nodes. I've seen 3 squads just stand expectantly next to an activated power node for 10 minutes without making any move to cap it. In this state, all you have to do is blitz the AI at the start, take all the power nodes, and they have no power for the rest of the game.
As cool and fun as this mod is, this bug renders it pretty much unusable against the computer. All the other bugs (repeatedly entering/exiting buildings, permaretreat, etc.) can be ignored, but that one glaringly makes the game experience weaker than it should be. Please fix this :(
We are aware of this. It was originally intended to prevent set up teams from automatically attacking power nodes so as not to be accidentally revealed to your opponent. It had the negative side effect of preventing AI from attacking it. We're still looking for a solution.
They have noticed it, this has been said before but, thanks for the input I guess lol
Bat file is missing.
The update.bat file for updating army colors?
No, the one to LAUNCH the mod.
NVM...I fixed it...See the main page for the issue I have now.
I'm downloading this mod for the first time how do I begin to play it? just start the game normally?
The installer will create a shortcut on the desktop for you. You can use that shortcut to play Elite instead of the normal retail shortcut.
Good to see it!
I have to notice you that the mod is all ****** up with the new update. This should be fixed rather quickly
Yeah, we're working on it.
Hi guys, do I need to delete previous versions of Elite to get version 2.5? or is just an update?
It's a full version of the game, but you don't have to delete previous versions to install it. The installer will replace all of the files for you.
Hello everyone, I'm currently running Windows 10 and can run DoW2 with no issues, but this mod keeps crashing every single time with this error before the game even starts.
Crash Report #2575359
Games for Windows Live has failed to install correctly. Please attempt to install it directly from the web: Gamesforwindows.com Also, please install the latest version of DirectX: Microsoft.com
Nevermind I'm dumb, I thought your mod was auto-detecting my install location but it goes to the C drive. I currently have my game installed in the D and have corrected the issue, sorry about that.
Hey, no worries. Glad you got it to work :)
Hello, just a little notice: Apparently the game crashes when selecting the Ork faction in the army painter. Great job on the mod by the way!
This was caused by Relic's recent patch. There will be a new version on here soon that fixes this.
Good to know you are on the ball! keep up the good work!
can you switch to the elite mod and back to the normal versoin?
Yes, they both use different shortcuts.
