The mod may crash if you don't have one of the following commanders selected from the normal game:
Chaos Lord, Captain, Lord General, Farseer, Hive Tyrant, and Warboss.

Otherwise it is trying to load a Commander that doesn't exist anymore, so to fix this start up regular Retribution, select one of the Commanders posted above, go to the game setup screen with the players and the map, and then quit and load WoA back up and it should work.

No, that will only fix a certain crash for starting a skirmish or multiplayer game, not a crash that occurs while Retribution is loading.

So I'm fairly sure I installed the mod correctly, however when I try to launch it steam launches its first-time setup thing (reinstalling Directx and the .net famework) and ends up trying to validate and download all the files.
Happens every time I try to launch it.

I'm unable to download the UCS file update on Megaupload.

I downloaded the main file with no problems, but this one will either sit at the screen loading until it just stops, or if I hit the button a second time, it will say download limit exceeded.

Weird, really.

I am confused.

I finally got the UCS file downloaded, and I let the file go into the folder it wanted, and I still see a shitload of "no range 00000000" when I am playing Spess Mehreenz

Is this a known issue, or did I download it wrong?

Depends if your language is supported or not, and/or if you put the UCS file in the right place.

The .exe file was making a folder of its own...lol

It said it was going to the Locale directory in my steam etc etc Retribution folder, but it made a whole new Retribution folder in my Documents folder...I don't know either.

I made it work, and I have to say I am impressed for an Alpha. Still really nice.

Hiho,

I am new at posting, but playing till .... fok 3.2 or something.

Just a quick question:

why do i get this ?

http://screenshot.xfire.com/s/117271441-4.jpg

and this

http://screenshot.xfire.com/s/117271543-4.jpg
http://screenshot.xfire.com/s/117271568-4.jpg

is it just because the mod is "alpha" or is it because i am from Germany ?
i thought it should be no difference between german and us or uk version.

i always play english DOW, because ... all other voices sounds weird.

btw.
thx for your awesome work :-)

First of all, wonderfull work on the mod so far! :)

Found a bug with the Lictor: When using fleshhooks the animations cease afterwards, in other words the Lictor does a pretty sweet hover in the air bit and then casually floats around the map- but can't make any attacks.

Also I can't seem to get the UCS file loader to put the files in a specific destination- atleast not one that Im not choosing. In which folder is it meant to be placed?

Just found another USC file in the folders so Im guessing that the mod-version should end up next to it. The game will probably work as it should now and my previous rambling should be ignored... :roll:

You install the .UCS files to Retribution's GameAssets\Locale\<Your Language> directory.

Hi, i am french sorry for my English.

I successfully installed the mod files, the game starts fine, but when I select the Tyranids in "Army Builder" the game crashes. The game crashes also when I try to create a private party. I can not even go into the interface with the players and maps.

I need help, thank you.

Did a test run of Woa, and i'm impressed with it's current state.

Problems that i noticed:
-"scirmish" menu crash (apparently i seem to have my selected hero set as chaos lord, that or i shave to have set every hero correct, either way it works)
-Flash gitz can't reinforce (you're in alpha stage so assume it's just not looked at yet)
-Lootaz seem to destroy anything very fast (i saw a topic somewhere around here about not being capable of editing armours, is that correct?)
-Orks seem to start with way more resources (that or pausing the game makes resource income continue)

good luck on the mod.

Any bugs etc post them here on the forums. Enjoy and spread the word :L

UCS file update: Should self install to the right place. This is required for a lot of unit names etc. So get this too.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=9BEJW1T6

Important:

The mod may crash if you don't have one of the following commanders selected from the normal game:
Chaos Lord, Captain, Lord General, Farseer, Hive Tyrant, and Warboss.

Otherwise it is trying to load a Commander that doesn't exist anymore, so to fix this start up regular Retribution, select one of the Commanders posted above, go to the game setup screen with the players and the map, and then quit and load WoA back up and it should work.


Hi Horus, Seasons Greetings and all that. Trying to play your wonderful mod, and keep on crashing. I am running a very high spec pc, running windows 7 Ultimate (it obviously has the .net framework installed). I tried going into normal and selecting heroes that are on the list, and every time it still crashes. Any help possible by you or any of your team? Many Thanks.

Okay, got around it, but only by choosing the Space Marine Force Commander in vanilla, and then restarting it. Lord General, Farseer and I think Chaos Lord don't work.

So, first thoughts. Love the model work, love the squad sizes, really like the way you have added extra menus. however, it seems to me that only Space Marines have been done. Certainly all the Eldar wargear is disabled (only played Space Marines and Eldar so far).
Also, Space Marines regeneration is ridiculously OP, normal Tacs regain so much health so quickly even under suppression fire.

Also, what I guess is the Command Squad (it still has the label of Tactical Marine Squad) has a black cube placemarker. Not sure which that is meant to be (maybe the techmarine?), because I am not really up to speed on the last version of the Codex. All the models look truly brilliant though. Just wondering, will the Apothecary have any special abilities?

Also, can't help but notice that the Eldar drop like flies, but the Space Marines maintain their model count (barring perhaps scouts) to a very low HP. Also, no friendly fire from the Whirlwind (which, btw, is truly excellently implemented ;) ) didn't notice if there was any from the Fire Prism, though there might be in which case its an implementation rather than bug.

Also, think the Fire Prism fire rate is rather low, especially compared to the Whirlwind (though I understand that it has less range, I think - it can fire over obstacles though, which the FP can't).

Also, Scouts arent appearing on my construction menu, but there is a blank slot with a Q key hotkey, so that might be them. The AI doesn't appear to go for Powerpoints when it needs them.

Sorry, these are just some first thoughts after having played a 3 games Eldar vs Space Marines, Space Marines vs Chaos, and Imperial Guard vs Imperial Guard.

I would just like to add that I understand this is still in Alpha, so you havent set anything in stone, and there might well be a few placeholder units, loads of placeholder text (almost every addon to vehicles was listed as a flamer, or at least had a flamer icon ;) ), some bugs, and probably a lot of fine tuning ( ;) ) but I just thought i would give some limited and uninformed feedback. ;)

As a conclusion, I would just like to say that this is a really incredible mod, that significantly changes the game play and feel of the game - I wont say for the better, but definitely just as good. It is, of course, lovely to have new units and such large armies, and it does feel like playing an entire new game - and very much more like the feel of Warhammer 40k.

On the whole I love it, and of course I have to commend all the team on producing such a fine alpha. I hope you don't consider my comments insulting, they are just potential bug reports and subjective comments. in the meantime, keep up the excellent work, and thanks again for producing such a fine mod. :)

I just discovered that this version is for retribution (I thought it was for dow2 original which I don't have), and since I just got retribution yesterday I wanted to try it (AS I LOVE FOK).

THOUGH THE UPLOAD IS FROM MEGAUPLOAD WHO HAS BEEN SCREWED UP! So I can't. You should upload from somewhere else now.

Loving Firestorm over Kronus still. Bought Soulstorm too yesterday, and I bought it JUST for Firestorm over Kaurava, I swear. Keep going, I support you!
