Hello everyone !
First of all, happy new year to all of you
next, please forgive my bad english
I hope i am on the right section, and above all, on the right forum !
here is the situation :
I play Dawn of war 1 since a loooong time, especially Dark Crusade (today, only steam version)
Recently, i have discovered that there are mods for DC, and some veryyyy good mods by the way.
I'm a single player, i played and finished the campaign many times now.
It was a very good experience to try it with mods. Today, i love to play with the Titanium wars mod (still on the solo campaign).
The thing is : i would like to "improve" it, in some way.
First thing i would like to do is : changing the heavy bolter firing sound
In titanium wars, the sound is the original one from dawn of war.
I have the sound i want, the same from Dawn of war 2 (i found it from unification wars mod folders, for Soulstorm) in .fda
If i take other sounds, convert them in .fda, rename theme in heavy_bolter_1 ; heavy_bolter_2 etc, they will be played when a heavy bolter is fired is Soulstorm when the UW mod is active.
What i tried :
there is initially no folders in the titanium wars data folders, opposed to unification wars folders where everything is there, accessible.
So i tried to roughly copy and paste the files in the titanium wars data folders, inspired by the path in the unification wars folders (both _default.rat file and sound files)
What happened : i have now a beeping sound when an heavy bolter is fired in Dark crusade.
If i just delete the .fda files, still got the beeping noise. I have to delete all the path and folders (data/sound/races/spaces_marines/troops_weapons/heavy_bolter) in the data folders of Titanium wars to have the original heavy bolter sound coming back.
I understand that i miss something, i have to do something to "create" a new section in the Titanium mod to link the sound to the weapon. I used Corsix Mod Studio to find the files in the .sga of titanium, thats where i learnt that they use the original sound and not a new one. Maybe thats the problem.
Anyway, do you have please any hint for me to change this sound on the mod ?
My goal is just to enjoy even more my time on this mod, and on this game. Nothing else.
Thank you for your time, please understand im a old guy who knows nothing about modding, i tried my best to sneak in the folders and understand, but its hard. English is not my first language, and i very bad in computers
Again, thank you for reading me
Have a nice day !
