Did not know that there was a seperate mode for DoW and WA,I Downloaded the new tools and it opens the same way as they always did.Maybe thats why I cant find any of the new stuff

i have the same issue. apon returning to edit the maps, all i get are pink question marks and boxes. in the debugging screen it lists the files it failed to open for the decals and objects, but when i try to check it out manually, those locations don't exist.

where exactly are the WA files?

hope somebody knows...

Are you saving the maps to your WXP folder and not your w40k folder? I beleive your WA maps are supposed to go in your \\Pc\thq\Dawn of War\WXP\Data\Scenarios\MP folder. If the folders aren't there just make them.

Thanx Danimator that helped alot problem solved. All WA maps have to be placed where Danimator said in order for them to work.Also I cleared everything clean and did a reinstall also and that seemed to fix all the bugs I was having also

Make sure you are patched to 1.41 first, then download the tools from: http://dawnofwar.filefront.com/file/Dawn_of_War_Mod_Tools;51556 Read the readme's, set up your "My_Mod" folders as descibed and you're good to go. For maps, all you need to know can be found via: http://forums.relicnews.com/showthread.php?t=64151 Have fun and get ready for plenty of late nights. :)

p.s. Welcome to the community and Merry Christmas
