i really want a boost up in the graphics engine, it bugs the crap out of me when textures, modeling of units n mechines look crappy in skrimish but excellent in single campaign n tutorial. PS3 n Xbox 360 im sure supports DirectX10 n the PhysX Accelerator. i know the High resolution v1.1 helps that but the AI sucks so i dont want to deal with playing that mini mod just to get a boost in graphics. Dark Crusade should be supportable with the PhysX Accelerator as well, make the game a lot better in the physics engine. I want to know what your guys opinions about the graphics engine n physics engine. in case u ppl dont know about the PhysX Accelerator, it was annonced at GDC 06 back in March, here's a link to the site that tells all about it n what it does excatly, go to FAQs: http://physx.ageia.com/

You mean Expansion, not expantion. :p
well.....can it be possible to change it? i mean, WA changed DirectX9b to X9c and made DoW look a little better but not a lot. PhysX Accelerator comes out this month n says its supportable with PC games coming out 2006 n 2007. Does that include Dark Crusade even though its not on their list right now on physx.ageia.com? They could update it u know.
How u know that theirs a rule about updating the graphics engine with expansions?

Apparently Microsoft aren't doing a DX10, they are scrapping the DirectX system when Vista is launched in favour of a newer technology. Not sure if its gonna happen, but thats the rumor I heard...
ive heard that too, but what about the PhysX Accelerator supporting Dark Crusade? u guys think the next expansion will support it? if u dont know about it, go to the first reply to go to the site.

xWildsidexwell.....can it be possible to change it? i mean, WA changed DirectX9b to X9c
thats the same type with a few upgradesbut DirectX10 and all that are completly new like a massive overhall sort of thing
xWildsidex, you really dont need a mod in order to get high graphics in WA. read this post and it explains how to get the good graphics in Dawn of war/WA. just remember a couple of things though:
1. be sure to put the screen resolution back to its default (whatever you have it set to)
2. these settings (especially fullres_teamcolor) will eat your system alive if its low-end.
also, this is not a mod so you have this running with the Advanced skirmish AI mod or play online. they scrapped the DirectX project? damn that kinda sux a bit
never said its a mod, plus, i was wondering if it was possible to update or upgrade the graphics engine in the next expansion is all im asking. Tell me exactly how to boost the graphics, u know the name of the folders like a tutorial.....
