I didn't make it!
hi, i have warhammer 40k and its add ons all up to dark crusade and am borrowing it from my buddy for a while. i have more or less finished it and am getting bored so i decided to install a few mods. they all setup on my computer in the right way in the proper folders etc. the only thing i havent done is registered the cd key, seeing as it is my friends game. why when i go to activate a mod for use in dark crusade wont any of the installed mods appear? do i have to register the cd key or do something else? Help!
So you're playing Dark Crusade without registering first?
I thought that to install the game and actually play it you have to enter the register key, I'm pretty sure that it's not just for online purposes.
If not then I think what you need to do is go to the Game Manager and then click on the mod you want to use. This should then restart Dark Crusade in the Mod version and you should then be playing using the mod itself.
As I understand it, you can't install it at all without a registration key. It will ask you at the end if you have the first two in the Dawn of War series, and gives you the option to enter those serials as well, but they are not needed in order to play mods. All they do is activate more races for when you play in multiplayer.
If the mods you have tried are not showing as options in the Game Manager then the only other real alternative is that there is something wrong with their installation or install path. Just inside the Dawn of War - Dark Crusade folder you should see both a folder and a .module file named the same thing. Both of these have to be there or they won't work. I hope you get it sorted out, mods are a lot of fun and there are some really good ones out there.
