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!

It appears that the same Space Marine issue is present for me. I can't launch a Skirmish with any Space Marine army without it crashing. Any ideas?

(It is a clean install of Retribution also).

Do you got any other mods?
Is the game up to date?

I checked all 3 space marine commanders and they work. The problem is on your end I'm afraid.

had the same problem with the last release along with a few other mods, it ended up being a problem with my graphics settings being set too low.

I'm afraid it only works with Ultra high texture settings.

So, correct me if i'm wrong, if we don't, or can't set textures on Ultra, we can't play it? Well unfortunately i can't set my textures any higher than 'Medium', the game won't let me go any higher, for some reason. You would think that would be an issue to at least try to fix, for the sake of people (Like myself)forced to use a low-end PC.

The problem is, I'm not sure what causes the issue. I think it may be some models, but I'm not sure.

What I'll do tomorrow is totally uninstall Retribution, and clear the directory and reinstall it and the mod. But from memory and checking, there's no other mods as I did do a clean install a few weeks ago to see if it'd cure this problem before.

I have seen other people have this issue, but again, I'll try this all out and see how it goes and if I have any success, I'll be sure to let you know!

Maybe you need the textures to be put on ultra high. Not sure if that helps, but its worth a try!

Okay, right! I did change the texture quality before uninstalling everything and that did indeed fix the problem! :D

That seems like an odd bug though; having to have your setting higher than usual to get the mod working, but nonetheless, I got it to work!

Glad to hear it. Not sure what causes that or why.

Really a great mod, which gets better and better. The predator and land raider lascannons not firing animation bug is fixed for me. I'm so glad for that, thanks heaps!

Thank you! It was caused by the mod packing tool actually not packing some files. I had to change its settings to includede these file types , and now it works.

Will this work with a non steam version?

No idea. For some reason my mod is a bit temperamental. Like it requires ulta high textures for some reason.

I just thank the Machine God it works!

No, you can not. There are other mods that increase the pop cap out there.

I can't seem to get it to run. Whenever I launch the game, it crashes immediately. I did the standard messing around with compatibility options and running as admin and such, but nothing.

All settings on Ultra, installed it fine and no other mods. I will continue tinkering, I am sure I will get it eventually.
