Guess what, ITS ME AGAIN! But this time, its not about my Storm Eagles mod, its about maps.... Quesion 1) HOW THE HELL DO YOU GET MAPS TO WORK ON DOW!! IV GOT HURRICANE, HELMSTAAD BASILIKA AND CASTLE ROUSTENSTEIN, BUT I CANT GET ANYOFTHEM TO EVEN BE IN THE MISSION SELECT IN DOW! Question 2) I have a problem on teh Mission Editor, where a) I cant get things to be close together (like when you have to construct the buildings), b) once Ive palced a crit location, I cant place any more gameplay units and finally c) If i place 1 unit, any others just pile up on top of it! So, can anyone help? I have a feling it my be because of the missing DATASRC folder, but I honestly DONT KNOW!

try puting all the map files in THQ/dawn of war/W40K/data/scenarios/MP if the folders are not there, make them, all multi player map files go in MP and story map files go in the SP folder. and even tho the files are under W40K they should still work in WA, mine do anyway.

Where is the SNAP button in the editor? OKay, I found out that I had forgot to take the map files out of the Zip folder, but even in the maps directory, they still don't show up? What the hell is going on????? Oh, and I found the SNAP button, now I just need to know how to move things, delete em (not undo!) and rotate them!

I am a long time player of dow and have decided to start making my own maps, but i don't know where to retrieve the mission editor( i am told this is what you use to create maps). I dont know wether its a cd or a download. Please send me in the right direction.

1.41 mod tools: http://dawnofwar.filefront.com/files/Dawn_of_War/Official_Releases/Others;4516 as long as 1. the map is for the right patch 2. all files are intackt and 3. all files are the MP folder u should not have any prob with the maps, i cant help any more on this just cos i cant think up any other logical reson for them not to work. as for the snap button i had the same prob with the first tools i think i just played around with it till it just started workin.
