This mod aims at modifying Dawn of War 2 Retribution to portray combat in a more lore-accurate manner. Prepare to find Space Marines as powerful as the books depict them, ork hordes in their hundreds, and dozens of Guard tanks shelling into an incoming tyranid horde!

Description

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 due to all of its weapons being plasma or melta.

I'm afraid not without models. I can't make models, I just take what other people are nice enough to share.

No. I modded Dow2 vanilla and Chaos rising campaign, I don't feel the Retribution campaign is big or good enough to warrant that much effort.

I have the same issue. I extracted into the DoW II Retribution install directory and added the files that needed to be added but I consistently get a crash report. I followed the second set of instructions by changing the start up properties for the game but I still get the issue. Yes, I have the update for it as well so thats already taken care of. What can be done to fix this issue? Was there a certain folder that I was supposed to put it in aside from just the simple install directory folder?

It is supposed to add an "astartes" folder to your Dow2-ret main folder if you installed properly.

The game works fine, but it spawns SOOO many units that my computer slows to a crawl, I have a very beefy rig with an i7 5930k @ 4.6Ghz and 2 R9 FuryX in crossfire with a mild overclock.
