Hi

Soon I'm going to be getting a new hard drive, and I've been backing up some of my game files.

I was wondering if there was a way I could backup my custom Dawn Of War: Dark Crusade armies (the ones made in army painter) so I could just copy/paste them back in when I reinstall the game on my new hard drive along with my badges, banners and save games. I tried having a look around for any obvious files but couldn't find any, so any ideas anybody? :confused:

badges and banners can be found in the dow directory usually c :program files\thq\dow\dark crusade (or soulstorm)badges and c :program files\thq\dow\dark crusade (or soulstorm)banners.

I just found this about team colors on hive world terra thanks to hanger8 I've just saved a teamcolor, where is it stored? All schemes made in the Army painter go here. The exception will be mods, and that is as follows: Dawn of War: ..\Dawn of War\Profiles\ProfileX\[mod folder]\Schemes Winter Assault: ..\Dawn of War\Profiles\ProfileX\[mod folder]\Schemes Dark Crusade: ..\Dawn of War - Dark Crusade\Profiles\ProfileX\[mod folder]\Schemes where ProfileX is the folder for the profile you used (usually Profile1) and [mod folder] is a folder with the name of one of the mods you have installed and have saved data from. Schemes are created in whichever mod was active when you boot DoW/WA. This means if you start DoW with the Steel Legion Mod active, use the Game Manager to switch to the Painter Mod and create a scheme, then when you save it it'll be in the Steel Legion mod folder under Profiles. Thanks to Hangar-8 for this information.

I hope that this will be of some help for ya
