First, find a mod you want. Pretty simple. ModDB is one of the best sites for mods: http://games.moddb.com/100/dawn-of-war/mods/


Some mods are packaged as .exes, which means you just have to run it and it'll find the game and install the files for you.

Finding mods is easy as opening up a search engine and searching "dawn of war mods". That should keep you busy for a bit.

As for manual installations, once you find a mod you want, link me to it here and I'll go through it and write out the steps, as each mod installs a bit differently depending on what they do.

If this makes sense--

Download it, extract the files, if there is an .exe, run it and follow the steps.

That simple.

Well, i havent time to DL it myself and try it.

That should've worked, though. You may have a codec issue.

Do you have the latest Xvid Codec? Its a requirement.

Try patching Dark Crusade. The mod details don't include what version of DC to use, so to be safe patch to the latest version, then unzip, run the installer, and follow the instructions. That should do it pretty nicely.
