I'm very new with this game, DOW, dark crusade,...Well everytime I host or join to someone's game, it seems that, the only available RACE option we can have is NECRON, TAU and RANDOM. But for computers, all the options are available. Is it possible that, we could use other races as well? Anyone's help would be greately appreciated

Once you put in the Cd keys for WA and Dow, you can uninstall them if you wish.

Really thats odd, i don't have WA on my comp but i can still use the IG. I assumed the same would work for the original. My bad.

You must have Dawn of War and Winter Assault installed on your computer to play as the Space Marines, Eldar, Chaos, Orks, or Imperial Guard.

no, i dont think so i dont have the internet at my house so when i went to my friends house i brought DC and installed it i tried to play online i could only play as tau and necron even though it didnt prompt me to put in the cd key for WA and DoW which i always have with DC because when i first installed DC on my computer at home i didnt have DoW & WA installed so i put the two cd keys in and i can play lan at home and still play as the other races so wtf is going on at my mates house??????????

A couple of points

a) You can play online as TAU and NECRON with DC only. The same goes for lan.

b) It prompts you at the start of DC only, if it does detect registry entries for either DOW or WA

c) you do not have to have the other games actually installed. There's this very nifty utility called DC race unlocker, which generates the registry entries itself. Note, you still need to have original cd keys.
