File Description

This mod will allow you to create army lists including weapons and researches as well as (of course) vehicles and infantry for DoW. Those army lists will then be used in a normal DoW game both online as well as in a skirmish game. Once you have installed the mod you will have a new victory condidtion that you must check to activate it. The new victory condition will not trigger a win. So you also have to use another victory condition as well. As of Beta 0.3 you must still hand-edit your army lists. Instructions for this can only be found online under http://forums.relicnews.com/showthread.php?t=40804 since this is meant to be a temporal issue only. For the coming releases this mod will get a grapical interface that allows you to create new army lists as well as edit existing ones. The next step will be to create an online-capable application that will do the file-management for you, allowing easier startup of an online game.

since this is meant to be a temporal issue only. For the coming releases this mod will get a grapical interface that allows you to create new army lists as well as edit existing ones.

The next step will be to create an online-capable application that will do the file-management for you, allowing easier startup of an online game. 



But even now you can play online with your friends! 
Instructions on how to do that are as follows


--------------
-INSTALLATION-
--------------


Simply copy the data folder inside that came with this mod into <DoW-Root>/<wh40k> overwriting the data folder already there.

But don't worry, there are no files overwritten by this mod as it is completely clean.


After copying, you shoudl have the following folder / file structure:


<DoW-Root> <--- wh40k.exe is here
.<Wh40k>
..<Data>
...<scar>  <--- a total of 8 files are here, named SU_player_X, X from 0-7. Those are the army list files.
....<winconditions>  <--- another 2 files go here, namely presetupgame.scar as well as presetupgame_local.lua



-----------------
-DE-INSTALLATION-
-----------------


Simply delete the new files. There are no other changes required.

-HOW TO SETUP A ONLINE GAME-
----------------------------


1) You need to check with your friends about who is going to play at which player slot from 0-7 (the host always being slot 0)

2) Create a new army list (or re-use an existing one, but make sure the filename and function name is correct) for your player slot.

        To do this, you need to open the file SU_Player_[number].scar located in:


        <DOW-Root> <--- wh40k.exe is here
        .<wh40k>
        ..<data>
        ...<scar>  <--- lists are here

        Where [number] is your to-be player slot.

3) Send your friends your own army list. They all need to copy them into the folder above, overwriting existing files. 

        It is important that everyone has the same files in the same position or you will get sync errors.

4) Gather online and play.

This is a non-profit mod. If you intend to copy any code from it, please email me first at keinerwillmich@gmx.de since I would like to know where it can do any good.

You are allowed to mirror this file on a non-pay-for-service mirror but please inform me if you do so and keep this readme with the rest of the files.

You are not allowed to make this file availiable in any kind or form that will make you money explicitely from making this file availiable.



If you like this mod and have a warez version of the game, please buy it. 

Making THQ (and Relic) money from this will make expansions and/or sequals that much more likely.
