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.

erm.. how/what is patching? and do i still need the Xvid codec thing if i patch DC?

i know i sound like such a noob, but well, pc games arent really my thing if you know what i mean.
don't worry about it, I'm the same, I have asked so many people how to do these patches and mods, but everyone I ask usually assumes I'm a computer wizz and that I have a clue as to what there on about, when I say I don't understand, they usually just say your an idiot and walk away lol

You said your PC wouldn't recognise the files? Are they RAR files, which i had some difficulty with, if so search it and download the program to open it.

Inquisition daemonhunt is an excellent mod, and it does have an .exe, if that helps

you can also get the latest patch by logging onto the multiplayer online section, download it from there, then install

also, if you don't have an .rar reader, download winRAR archiver, use this:

don't bother buying it though, just download the free one just under it (silly site makers) in the 21st of September entry
