Totmacher from Relic Entertainment has left a message in the Official DOW Forums telling us about how to switch mods without overwriting existing data. If those of you that are having trouble doing this, here's what he said: [quote]Hi All, Instead of editing the w40k.module or mucking with data in the W40k\ folder structure, you can do this: 1) Create a seperate folder structure for the data you want, eg: ...\Dawn Of War\My_Mod\ 2) Create a new module file -- for example My_Mod.module. 3) Edit this file to keep using the W40k DLL, but change your folder to My_Mod. This will load the data from your location with the game-code in the W40k DLL. 4) Run the game with the command line arg: -modname My_Mod This should run the game with your mod, instead of having to edit the W40k.module. If it fails, check the warnings log -- you may have to copy and paste the W40k.dll to your mod's name (for the time being), so following the example above: My_mod.dll Questions? Post them and I will answer as time permits. George [/quote] Head to this thread to find out more information!
