If not, i shant buy WA. however, is there any way to put persistent bodies in my unpatched DOW by changing code? perhaps by changing the amount of time a dead body lays on the ground before disappearing from 1 second to several hundred/thousand seconds? i would greatly appreciate any help.

also, how do people like necron_guy take those sweet things of close combat kill scenes? how do you record those gif images?

The people who origanaly made them used programs such as fraps and gamecam. However by cheaking the location of hellocookies signature the site is :

http://www.elduderino.nildram.co.uk/Game/DOW/

Nice job wasting there bandwidth by hotlinking the image instead of hosting it yourself!

back to the thread please. are those real ones from the game? as in if i get an avatar vs bloodthirster will it look like that? and what happened to the sweetest one, the one with the bloodthirster getting pwned by a librarian?

well the reason i wouldnt buy WA, if you actually read my post, is because it apparently does not support widescreen.

i want two things: widescreen and persistent bodies. i have a non patched DOW, and it has widescreen. i cant seem to patch it properly, and if i do, its no more widescreen.

until i can get both, im not paying up! and ill wait for the mods completion.... im watching like 10 mods and none of them are looking to be released soon or very good, even from my optimistic perspective.

look at bfpirates, my favorite mod for bf1942. the bfpirates 2 has had 2 updates in like 2 years..... very disappointing indeed.

some mods do hold promise, but until horus heresy is out and proven i shant spend money on them....

all it takes is some way to get widescreen working with WA or 1.41 patch. or how do i make the bodies stay there for a long time editing in the code?

I'd go to the Relic Forums Technical Help section and look in there. IIRC widescreen isn't officially supported any more in WA, but I think there is a change you can make in the INI file that still makes it work.

As for persistant bodies, I think DoWFiles had a mod for it not long after we first found out about the ability.

And Hellocookie: hotlinking is using the URL of a file on their website without their permission and using their bandwidth for your sig image instead of saving the image and uploading it to your own site, especially when bandwidth can be so expensive and when some of those animations are so rediculously huge.

By "Copy and pasting" that image you are stealing bandwidth from the site you copyed and pasted it from. Judgeing how it is divided into directorys im not sure if its up or whatever. But everytime you take an image from a site and put it as your signature or your avatar you are stealing bandwidth from a site which they have to pay for. If im not mistaken i think that is illegal. You should save the image and host it on a site such as image shack ( www.imageshack.us ) if you like the image so much.

And wombat Those are the real ones from the game. As far as i know winter assault is compatible with widescreen users but you may need to tweak a few settings. And to be honest if you cannot patch your game then it isnt even worth you to buy it because the entire basis of the game is online.

Damnit ibboard i lost my password for the relic forum and that lost be the 2 minutes to one you up mr i can post 2 minutes faster!

um kamikaze warlord,i totally disagree that the entire basis of the game is online... you see, i play 3 PC games mainly: Battlefield 2, Rome total war, Dawn of war. two of them have online capabilities, but i prefer them singleplayer. One of them is obviously the one i always play online.... a cookie if you guess which one! its Battlefield 2 obviously. and unfortunately, when i slog into the patching game, i find it only worthwhile with BF2s online. especially with super cheap units like possessed marines, defiler spamming, rushing,etc etc. you know, RTSs flaws.

in fact, i modify files currently to bring them into what blood angels are REALLY like, as i had a blood angels tabletop army and they certainly arent just more accurate orks! i changed it so they will pwn things that they should pwn!

also, im thinking of making it so a lascannon only needs one shot rather than 3 to kill a guardian... heh and now i hear its ranked, and people will do anything to win.... thats fine in BF2, where i easily hold my own and then some, but not fun in an RTS that still has some bad spamming... i really just enjoy the 40k universe and excellent action (carnage) of DOW, which is why i want persistent bodies and widescreen.

and i never knew widescreen was officially supported.... do you have a link to the thread or mod that implements persistent bodies? id really appreciate it, but will search in the meantime.

Well you can play insane computers till you pass out but they are ungodly easy and theres really no satisfaction in it. However with games like rome total war they are built for single player with such an open ended campaign. And to be honest i dont really care what you think of the online capibilitys intill you actully play them.

Edit : winter assault automaticly patches to 1.4 so you might be able to get the 1.41 patch after that.

Edit 2 : Your playing unpatched rome still? Man you cant even play the best mods / Elephants will walk right over your armys
