Hello and Welcome to the Fuggles Win Conditions Mod for Dawn of War 2 Retribution...version 3.2!
You'll never guess what - I have finally updated my win conditions mod for Dawn of War 2! This is mostly as I now have Dawn of War 2 and not just the long -ago locked beta version...It's still a pain in the ass to code, mind!
I hope you enjoy these modes and get a bit more variety from the game that you love.
Tug of War
Tug of War is a slightly adapted version of the victory point win condition. The ultimate goal is still to drain the VP total of your enemy, however in Tug of War your VP total increases for each point that you own, allowing you to recover up to your initial starting points.
Leech is a halfway point between VP and annihilate. For every VP that you own, the enemy HQ's lose 10 hitpoints per second. This is not a huge amount, but combined with your attacks will bring them crumbling down.
Take and Hold
Take and Hold is an old favourite from DoW 1 reborn. If your team holds at least 2/3 of the VP's on the map then a 5 minute countdown begins. When this countdown reaches 0 then you win, however if you lose your VP's then it resets.
In this mode each time has a number of lives which corresponds to the number of people on the team, so in a 3 vs 3 you will have 3 lives whereas in a 1 vs 1 you will have 1 life. Every time a hero on your team gets incapacitated then your life pool diminishes and when it reaches 0 then you lose! Note that the lives are shared so in a 3 vs 3 then one player could die 3 times, or each player perish once.
Similar to hero incap only that if one team has every player's hero incapacitated at once then they lose
If your team have no victory points for 60 seconds then you lose
**How to play**
1. Extract to your Dawn of War 2 Retribution Mods folder, which will probably look something like this:
..Steam\SteamApps\common\dawn of war ii - retribution\GameAssets\Mods
If this folder does not exist then it will be necessary to create it.
2. Open Steam and launch DoW2: Retribution
Now in game choose a multiplayer-> Custom game and you will see the new victory conditions in the drop down menu.
Corsix - SGA Reader Tool
Dekhranic - SGA Packer Tool
Relic - Dawn of War
Microsoft - Notepad
Chaos Godstone - worked out how to make it work in Dow2: Retribution and no doubt saved me a ton of time.
Changed readme instructions for DoW2 : Retribution.
Oddly for an update I have removed content! Free for all has been removed as it's now redundant in the 2.1 patch, what with it being included and all. On that note, this is now compatible with the 2.1 patch.
Added Free for all and Panic!
New to version 2.0 are two new game modes and I've implemented proper mod handling so there's no faffing with module files and stuff.
