Post tutorial Report RSS Ultimate Apocalypse mod tweaks (OLD!)

This easy yet useful tutorial shows how to changes a few things whintin The Ultimate Apocalypse mod without need to use any mod program and it wont change anything gameplay wise

Posted by on - Basic Other

First of all: I will NOT take any credit for this mod nore do I claim that I'm the creator behind it. All thanks should go to the the Ultimate Apocalypse mod team for their hard work with this exellent mod

Should this tutorial be in anyway against their rules wont I hesitate to remove it :)


NOTE: All these tweaks has been tested both in Apocalypse, Apocalypse XP1 and Apocalypse XP2 with the Tyranids mod and the Inquisition_daemonhunt mod as well solo campaign, skrimish and over LAN against other players wich didn't have these tweaks.

All it is doing is making a few simple yet useful tweaks on things that "I" missed from vanilla Soulstorm


UPDATE: These tweaks also works with 1.62.59, however there is no need to do the camera tweak anymore cus the Ultimate Apocalypose Team has been kind enough to include the original camera in version 1.62.59.


You will find the original camera in
Dawn of War - Soulstorm\Apocalypse Mod Miscellaneous\Apocalypse Bonus Stuff.rar


Tweak 1
Get back the Original camera

If you want the traditonal camera back in the mod there is an easy way;

locate your dawn of war - soulstorm folder
inside locate the Apocalypse folder
then inside open the data folder
the full location path should look something like this:
Dawn of war - soulstorm\Apocalypse\data (you are here)

There you should find 3 lua files named
camera_high.lua
camera_mid.lua
camera_low.lua

rename or remove them and tada the orginal camera is back :)
If you want to be extra safe make a backup of these files so you can restore them if something went wrong

Tweak 2
Gain a few extra fps
This tweak isn't new and you maybe already know it but useful more or less. You probaly are using a pretty new computer and when lots of things going on when there are many units on the screen the game gets very jerky and laggy.
What I noticed was it doesn't really matter what you change in the graphic option expect one major thing "persisten bodies". If you turn it OFF you will see a big fps boost in big battles :)
Sure it wont look as cool after a big epic battle or when the kroot warriors are Cannibalizing an empty ground :(

I got the feeling its a similar problem as in Supreme commander 1, single player. The game still think the "dead" unit/body is still an active unit. It doesn't matter how powerful computer you have it will begin to crawl sooner or later


Tweak 3 Voices
Get the farseer's original voice back

What I found a problem was that the eldar farseer's voice was way too loud compared to the other units voices and change her voice back to the original solved that.
Its similar to the original camera tweak

First locate your dawn of war - soulstorm folder
inside locate the Apocalypse folder then inside open the data folder
then open the sound folder
then the speech folder
then the races folder
then the eldar folder
here you will see 3 folder:
Avatar
Farseer
Scorpion

and the full location path should look something like this:
Dawn of war - soulstorm\Apocalypse\Data\sound\speech\races\eldar (you are here)

rename or remove the Farseer folder and you got her original voice back :)
If you want to be extra safe make a backup of this folder so you can restore it if something went wrong

Get the Space marine Dreadnought 's original voice back
I did find his voice was too loud to
and its same way as you changed the farseer voice expect you need to go here:
First locate your dawn of war - soulstorm folder
inside locate the Apocalypse folder then inside open the data folder
then open the sound folder
then the speech folder
then the races folder
here you will see all the races
all you need to do is rename or remove the space_marines folder

NOTE: before you remove the folder be extra sure thats the right space_marines folder cus there is another folder with the same name else were in the sound folder. The right located should look like:
Dawn of war - soulstorm\Apocalypse\Data\sound\speech\races (you are here)

I hope this works for you all gamers out there :)

Cheers
