when you say mods you mean custom paint jobs right? because i dont think there are acual "mods" yet. Ok first of all there is a directory to DOW just right click on start and go to explore and then program files and go down until you see THQ click that and theres DOW. Second you dont have to unzip (i just copy and paste works better and takes less time).In the DOW directory you will find many files double-click on the one thats called W40k then once your in there double-click on movies and copy and paste the file into movies and your done.

You need to download a program that extracts the files for modification to create mods. They exist, and are somewhere in this forum I attached the program that does it.

When you follow the instructions on extracting to the directories, just create them and extract. It'll override the files within the archived ones and allow the mod to work.

nightcrawler_20003, it would be nice to provide us with some more info, with what you give us we can't do shit. What mod did you download? Where did you download it? What is the file-extension? What does the readme litterly says?

Those questions need to be answered before we can help me.
