Description

3.2 full release Install the mod into your main Dow II retribution folder. Readme file included with Credits and instructions. Run either with Astartes.bat, or go to your Steam, go to Retribution, go to Properties, set launch options as "-modname Astartes" ,without the ""s. I recommend setting graphics to Ultra high before installing or mod may crash on space marines. Races , tactics, and units: Space marines heroes all have a separate race attached. Chapter commander is Adeptus Astartes, unlocking the contemporary 40k Space marines. Legion commander is Legiones Astartes, unlocking the 30k era late Great Crusade Space marines. Grey Knights commander is Daemonhunters, unlocking the Grey Knights. IG heroes are the same: Cadian commander unlocks the standard IG. Krieg commander unlocks the Krieg IG. Not suppressible, but fire slower if more powefully with their lasguns. Tau commander: Tau race, similar a bit to IG. Very weak in melee, but good at range with plasma weapons.

I really liked the Mod. One detail all the units have unbridled speed and that ruins the way you play it. Can't you share a patch to reduce the speed of all the units?
Thanks Brother for the Mod

Only units that are fast in the lore have the speed boost. Things like Space Marines, Eldar, Genestealers.

If you take note, you'll find that others like Ig and Tau are more like vanilla in terms of speed. Some like orks are in the middle.

I'm afraid I just no longer have the time to make sub-mods and comissions, and adjusting all those unit speeds would take some time and editing hundreds of files, since most squads consist at least 2 unit types and I need to edit each.

Lore-wise Astartes are really fast. But I get your point. Gameplay-wise its weird to see since looking at bulky Astartes running should be running slower since its also how the vanilla game portrays them.

But I like the mod just the way it is. Playing 30K units is very fun

Does this mode have an improved AI in the skirmish? or is it like in the vanilla?

You did not set the model and texture quality to highest.

Could be overworking the video card. You only need to keep models and textures on highest.

Well, tried playing Chaos Space Marines campaign and it works, not seen much changes yet other than the regular Heretics are a floating torso with a weapon, no arms, no legs, no face. This is a re-ocurring problem by the way. Hopefully there can be a fix?

EDIT 1: Playing Steam Version of Ret and also this was during the Campaign the first mission.

EDIT 2: Yes it appears there's some kind of error going on. Regardless of the BAT file I load up, I get the same model issue. I am also running everything on Ultra. :(

The mod is for skirmish, not for campaign.

Campaign is copy paste, and I can't scar edit well enough to salvage it. Campaigns can be edited best if its only for 1 race like dow2 chaos rising.

Thanks for letting me know, good to know, I'll reserve this for skirmish use only. Cheers! :)

Elite are working on a new campaign. I'm not privy to all details, but it will be more like Last stand where you lead a bunch of heroes through scripted stuff.

Not sure if it will be stand alone or such, but keep an eye out for Elite updates.

If I'm installing this when I already have an prior version of the mod, do I try and delete the files the mod created or does it automatically overwrite them?

Either should work.

Hello There! Thanks for bringing us this mod! Im really enjoying it!

Im still not through all of it and its so much fun!

Im currently playing with eldar and i have a question: you can place down several turrets like these that are protecting HQ but when im trying to place it it doesnt show in which way the gun is pointing. i also noticed that these turrets wont move even when shooting at enemies..

Is this a bug or am i doing it wrong?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

The downplaced turrets can't move. They are like Marine tarantula, and not like the Guardian's own grav platforms.

The gun doesn't need to point anywhere, all but the ork turrets (for visual reasons) have 360 degree arcs of fire.

Thank you very much! May i further ask why necrons are available in the army painter but not as an army itself? I found you absolutely great mod just jesterday so im not into the details of it but since then i havent done anything else.. its truly igniting my love for dawn of war 2 again *_*

Oh and the game crashes whenever i try to paint Tau in the army painter..

Tau are painted in the IG army painter.

Army painter tau crashes but I'm not sure why, and necron race is one character for the Last Stand.

Your download may have been corrupted, it is a large file and sometimes it can download badly, that is an internet issue that I can't control I'm afraid.
