1. once i've made a map how can i put it into the game 2. if i wanted to make models and animate them what program would i use. any help would be appriciated :)
Once you have made a map, make sure first everything is perfect, if you are going to host it save it somewhere easy to find and then save it again in C:/Program Files/THQ/Dawn of War/W40k(if it is an original Dawn of War map, if it is a Winter Assault map Instead go to WXP and still follow these same instructions)/Data/Scenarios/Mp If any of those folders don't exist make them. As for models.... Beats me. Sorry I couldn't help ya there. Hope the map tip helps it's a little confussing I know.
Dawn of war only uses models made by the program 3D Studios Max, however you can convert models with the program, but you would need to send your models to someone else with the program to convert it or get it yourself.
do you know if i have to pay for it or if its free where i can get it
you have to pay.If your a student its quite a bit cheaper.I will be getting it soon as I have started a ork mod.
