Dawn of War Pattern Switcher

Author: IBBoard (Submitted by IBBoard)
Category: Miscellaneous
Version: 3.0 Size: 57KB
Description: All of the Dawn of War games allow users to override the default patterns (the areas that Primary, Secondary, Trim. Weapon and Eye colours are applied to) by putting your own .WTP or .RSH files in specific directories. This little utility allows you to control the patterns you import, instead of having to remember what you downloaded to where!

This version of the tool includes a major rewrite and overhaul to improve feedback and make it more widely compatible and configurable. This includes provisional functionality for the new Dawn of War: Soulstorm expansion pack that should be able to be enabled with some simple configuration changes.

Note: this application requires the .Net framework v1.1 or compatible.

  • Changes compared to 2.1.1:
    • Changes:
      • Removed separate DoW and DC mods and DC specific preferences
      • Rewrote race listing to make use of folder mappings
      • Changed "no file sets in race folder" behaviour to leave the tab if the race folder exists, as textures may be loaded. Tabs are still removed/not shown if the folder does not exist
      • Added game EXE file names to the properties file so that Soulstorm support can be added before the game is released and then enabled with a simple properties change
      • Minimised problems with display not updating quickly when refreshing pattern lists (especially for large numbers of patterns)
    • New Features:
      • Folder mappings to allow the tool to be used with Soulstorm (the third expansion pack) and mod compatability for any mod that stores its textures in SGA files
      • Can now save and load different preference sets to allow multiple different setups rather than being restricted to a limited set (e.g. "DoW" and "DC")
      • Added "Launch Soulstorm" button in preparation for the release of the game
    • Bug Fixes:
      • Made help window read only
