    I was going to buy this game and play it with friends, glad I didn't. I know I've come late into the thread but I really don't like the idea of being stuck with Steam.

    Too bad for the nub developer.

    Wow, I didn't even know I had to go through GFW to play the game. Need Steam and this ****e.

    Well, kardes, thank you for telling me that as I didn't read the entire thread. I will, definitely, never buy this game.

    I hope the gaming industry dies for punishing those who buy their games.

    For those who actually play 40k, Tyranids Codex is next after Space Wolves (Not Dark Eldar). Supposed to be due in Feb-March 2010.

    You heard it here first :)

    I was getting about 200kB/s downloading DoW2 again. I just purchased the expansion last night so I'm looking forward to kicking some loyalist ass later tomorrow :)

    This change-log from the DOWII community forums is much more in-depth regarding specific changes;

    http://community.dawnofwar2.com/forums/topic/37746

    • Ultra settings have been disabled for users running 32-bit versions of Windows unless using the /3GB OS startup switch

    As far as I can tell, the command-line -disable32bitcheck doesn't work to turn ultra options on, at least on my setup.

    Quick look at the technical forums brings up users finding quite a few bugs already.

    [EDIT] Looks like reports are coming in of the Ultra settings again not working on 32bit systems. Waiting for the right command-line...if there is one.

    Amazing, it took them more than one year after the game's release to finally give us the units stances toggle (melee, ranged, etc.), congratulations Relic, you woke up just a little bit late but you finally did it... anyway, with that said, yes I am happy to see Chaos now part of the brawl, although I would have preferred them over the Tyranids from the start. Now the only thing we need are the Necrons and I think we'll be set almost as well as Dark Crusade was (and still is).

    Haven't had a chance to play it yet but I'm very eager to. Hmmm BC2 or this... so many pixels to kill, so little time :p

    After yesterdays update there's a lot of Chaos Rising files in the game folder now, entire game actually although based on the content of the xp_demo_end video file in \dawn of war 2\GameAssets\Data\Movies\ it's set up as a demo unless purchased, though the XP1 folder there does contain the actual movies.
    (Four endings although very similar over the course of three chapters it seems.)

    Come to think of it I have never completed DoW2... so before I start the CR campaign I'm going to play through that. I've done the beginning bit way too many times :p

    Roar. I wish this game used Steam Cloud. In fact I wish all games did.
