A balance mod, that is purely for testing the mod to see if it works well with other races.
Here's the latest version of the Tyranid Mod. We would like to stress that this is a balance mod, which means that it is purely for testing the mod to see if it works well with other races. It is by no means finished and the only model in game is the genestealer, the rest are taken from other races, so don't be surprised when you create some termagaunts and they're eldar guardians carrying flags.
To install, extract this zip into your Dawn of War folder, usually -
C:Program FilesTHQDawn of War
This mod WILL NOT work if you have not patched Dawn of War to version 1.3, if you are unsure whether you have version 1.3 of Dawn of War, run Dawn of War and at the main menu, the game version will be displayed in the top left of the screen. If you do not have version 1.3, then please download the appropriate patches from these locations -
1.0 to 1.01 - Files.filefront.com
1.01 to 1.1 - Files.filefront.com
1.1 to 1.2 - Files.filefront.com
1.2 to 1.3 - Files.filefront.com
Fresh from install Dawn of War is version 1.0.
You can then activate the mod in Dawn of War by choosing it in the mod manager in the main menu. After activating the mod, you can either play a skirmish game against bots or online as the Tyranid race. At the moment you cannot play against Tyranid bots, we haven't given them any ai so if you set a bot player to be Tyranids they will just sit there waiting for you to attack.
