Post tutorial RSS QA Space Hulk Mod

If you have a problem/question, go here before asking help.

Posted by on - Basic QA/Testing

Q: The shortcut created by the installer won't launch the mod, how can I get it works ?

A: sometimes, shorcuts are bugged. You can go in "\steamapps\common\dawn of war 2", and right-click on "Space Hulk Mod.exe" and "create shortcut".

Q: When i want to start the mod, a black little window popup then disappear, but the mod doesn't start ?

A: Two possibilities: the mod is installed in the wrong place, or your computer doesn't support the exe file.
To check if the mod is correctly installed, go in "\steamapps\common\dawn of war 2", you must have a file "Space_Hulk.module" and a folder called "Space_Hulk" with 2/3 files into.
If the installation is ok and the game still won't start, go in steam, right-click on the game, properties, "set launch options" and write exactly:

-modname "Space_Hulk"

Then launch the game normally, and it must works (to return to DoW2 vanilla, delete -modname "Space_Hulk").

Q: When the mod start, I got an error report.

A: First, check if your mod is correctly updated and can launch in normal mode.
If DoW2 vanilla/Chaos Rising can launch, it signify that the mod is broken: you must wait an update in order to play it again.

Q: In the game, I got a "fatal scar error".

A: Make sure that you had selected the "Space Hulk Reloaded" wincondition, and selected a Space Hulk map, and filled all the player slots.
Else, send me a message with the description of the error.

Q: In the game, I got texts in english or like this: "$9600000 No Range".

A: Go in "\steamapps\common\dawn of war 2\Gameassets\Locale\", you must have a file called "Space_Hulk.ucs". If you don't have it, two possibilities:

  • The mod is not correctly installed;
  • The mod is not translated in your language.

I try to make my mod accessible for the maximum of people, so if the mod is not translated in your language, you can contact me to propose a translation.

Q: When I destroy wargear boxes, nothing appear, is it normal ?

A: It's a bug and now I can't fix it: you must take a hero in the selection panel as if he was Space Marine.

The Mod did not install into the steam folder, it appeared to be and then was not there, the only way to install was to install elsewhere and copy it into the right folder. I needed to run the launch config in Steam option. It loaded and was clearly Space Hulk but when i started the Campaign it was vanilla.

Does the mod require Chaos Rising? I've got DoW2 vanilla, but whenever I try and run the shortcut or the Space Hulk Mod.exe, they both take me to the Chaos Rising page in Steam.
