Customer Support Contact======================INSTALLATION & SET UPPlease note that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM is a stand-alone expansion pack. You do not need to have Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War installed on your system in order to install and play SOULSTORM. However, if you have Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War or both Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Winter Assault installed, you will unlock more multiplayer features in Soulstorm.Please note that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM does not support Microsoft Windows 95, 98, NT, ME, or Vista.1. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTSMINIMUMWindows 2000/XPDirectX 9.0c (included on disc)2.0 GHz Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent AMD Athlon XP processor512 MB RAM (required for 8-player multiplayer games)5.1 GB free hard drive space for installation4x CD-ROM64 MB DirectX 9.0c compatible AGP video card with Hardware Transform and LightingDirectX 9.0c compatible 16-bit sound cardKeyboard, MouseRECOMMENDED2.4 GHz Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent512 MB System RAM (required for 8-player multiplayer games)NVIDIA GeForce 3 or equivalent with 64 MB of Video RAM.Sound Blaster X-FiREQUIRED FOR MULTIPLAYER1 disc/player per computerInternet: Broadband connection for online multiplayer playNetwork: TCP/IP compliant network2. CD KEY ISSUES A. Installation and the CD Key When installing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM, you will be prompted to enter your CD authentication key. The authentication key appears on the CD packaging. It is important that you enter the key string in its entirety exactly as it appears on the CD package. The Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM Authentication Server verifies the CD key each time you connect for online play. Please note, that while you can play all of the original races in the single player campaign, these races are locked for multiplayer use. If you have previously installed (or install at a later date) DAWN OF WAR, WINTER ASSAULT, and/or DARK CRUSADE, you will be prompted to insert your DAWN OF WAR, WINTER ASSAULT, and/or DARK CRUSADE CD key respectively, in order to unlock those original races for multiplayer use. B. Invalid CD Key messages The number one problem with CD keys is mistyping. Double and triple check the characters you have entered. C. Some common sense about your CD key Each CD key is unique - protect it from loss or theft by keeping a copy of it in a safe place. Without it, you cannot reinstall the game or play online. You may hear of so-called "CD Key generators" being available for illicit download on the Internet. They do not work as advertised, and often attempt to steal legitimate keys off your machine, reveal personal information or install viruses, worms and/or trojan horses on your machine.3. DIRECTX DETECTION AND INSTALLATION The Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM installer will check your computer for the currently installed version of DirectX. If it detects an older version of DirectX, it will prompt you to install DirectX 9.0c. THQ recommends allowing the installer to proceed with the DirectX 9.0c installation, even if you think you may have 9.0c installed. Re-installing DirectX 9.0c will not harm your DirectX configuration. Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM requires DirectX 9.0c to install and play.4. WINDOWS INSTALLER UPDATES The Windows Installer may need to be updated. If this is the case, the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM installer will update the Windows Installer, reboot the machine, then continue normally.TROUBLESHOOTING:***A Note on Troubleshooting:*** Many technical issues can be quickly identified by looking at the warnings.log, local.ini, and dxdiag.txt files. warnings.log is a small text file generated by Dawn of War every time you start the game. It contains information about your system from the point at which you started the game, to the point it was closed (or crashed). local.ini identifies specifics about your installation of Dawn of War, including the resolution you are playing at, what graphics settings you are using, etc. dxdiag.txt contains all the specific information about the version of DirectX installed on your system, and how it interacts with your specific hardware (graphics card, sound card, etc.).To locate these files:warnings.log & local.ini: Located in your Dawn of War root folder. If you installed Dawn of War to C:\Programs\THQ, it will be in C:\Programs\THQ\Dawn of War.dxdiag.txt: This file contains the result from your DirectX diagnosis tool. Run the tool by clicking on "Start", selecting "Run", and then typing "dxdiag", and then press the Enter key. A new window will open. Click the 'Save' button. The information from the tool will be saved in a file called dxdiag.txt. Please collect these files before you call Customer Support. This will speed up response time and help us provide better solutions, faster.1. VIDEO ISSUES A. Latest drivers required For best performance and video quality, please make sure you have the latest drivers for your video card when running Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM. If you have an ATI or NVIDIA video card, you can find drivers on their websites. ****://www.ati.com/ ****://www.nvidia.com/ B. Graphics Options Tool selects lower than expected range The Graphics Options Tool automatically detects the optimal settings for your system, based on your specific hardware configuration (most notably the CPU speed, system RAM, and graphics card). If you feel the Graphics Options Tool selects a lower setting than you expect based on your hardware configuration, it is possible that either you dont have up to date drivers for your motherboard and its chipset installed, AGP is disabled for some reason, or you have a PCI video card installed. For best performance, you should install the latest drivers for your motherboard and use an AGP video card. Please note that on some low-end systems, detected performance may be affected by having the installer running in the background. On min-spec systems, it is recommended that you re-run the Graphics Options Tool once installation is complete. C. Anti-Aliasing (AA) causing blurred text on ATI cards It has been noted that on some ATI Radeon cards, in-game text may appear blurry when Anti-Aliasing is set to the 'High Quality' or 'Optimal Quality' presets. To remedy this, simply change your Anti-Aliasing setting from 'High Quality' or 'Optimal Quality' to 'Application Preference'. To do this, go to the Control Panel, click the 'Display' icon, then click the 'Settings' button. Click 'Advanced', and then the '3D' tab. Select 'Custom Settings', and then select 'Application Preference' under 'Anti-Aliasing'. Click 'Apply' to accept the changes, and restart your computer. Users should experience no text-blurring under 'Optimal Performance', 'High Performance', or 'Balanced' settings for Anti-Aliasing.2. SOUND ISSUES A. Latest drivers required Please make sure you have the latest drivers for your sound card when running Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM. B. The sound stutters while playing: Make sure you have the latest drivers for your sound card. If stuttering persists try reducing Hardware Acceleration. From your Windows desktop, click Start, then Run, type "dxdiag", then hit Enter. This brings up the "DirectX Diagnostic Tool". Click the Sound tab and try reducing the "Hardware Sound Acceleration Level" slider.3. MOTHERBOARD DRIVERS Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM requires the absolute latest video card AND motherboard drivers to be installed, as there have been significant issues in recent, but not the latest, drivers. Please make sure you are running the latest drivers available for BOTH your video card and motherboard. Often motherboard drivers are overlooked when updating systems, and as a result most computers are running very old versions that simply do not work properly and may cause very noticeable slow downs and stability issues.4. MULTIPLAYER & INTERNET ISSUES***NOTE***: THQ Customer Support does not support playing multiplayer through firewalls or shared connections. A. Login fails with a connection error You may be experiencing problems connecting to the Dawn of War Online server or it may be temporarily off-line. - Verify that your internet connection is functioning correctly. - Verify that you can ping peerchat.gamespy.com, as the server may be down. - See the PORTS and FIREWALLS sections for details on how to correctly configure your system to allow online play. B. When logging in you get an error saying that you nickname or password is not valid. - Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM shares a "namespace" with Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - DARK CRUSADE. This means that nicknames registered on GameSpy for either game will work for the other. Nicknames from other editions of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War or from other games will not work and you will need to re-register them inside the game using the "Create Account" feature. If you've forgotten the password but can remember the email address you used to register the nickname, you can go to www.GameSpyID.com to retrieve the password. C. When logging in a message appears saying "Error using CD authentication system." - It may be that you cannot connect to the CD Key authentication server. Check your internet connection and follow the instructions in the FIREWALLS and PORTS sections. D. When logging in a message appears saying "CD authentication failed." - Your CD key might not have been properly detected during installation of the game. Please re-install Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM and take special note that you enter your CD key correctly. E. When creating an account you receive an error about the email address and password - The email address has been used to create an account in the GameSpyID system before. Go to www.GameSpyID.com to retrieve the password or chose a new email address with which to register the account. F. You can see games listed but you cannot join them, OR you can host a game but nobody can join the game - See the PORTS and FIREWALLS sections for details on how to correctly configure your system to allow online play. H. You can host a game but after a few seconds you get an error saying that the game could not be registered with the online lobby system. - Check that you can ping peerchat.gamespy.com, as the server may be down. - See the PORTS and FIREWALLS sections for details on how to correctly configure your system to allow online play. I. You get disconnected from the online lobby system after joining a game in the lobby or shortly after loading the game - If you have a Netgear router, try disabling the SPI Firewall under the WAN settings. J. The game freezes in the lobby screen, when trying to host a game or when joining a game. If you have a firewall it may be blocking Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM but the firewall popup window is not showing in front of the game. Quit the game or bring up the task manager and end the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM task. Go to your firewall settings and correctly configure them for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM. See the FIREWALLS section for more details. K. When playing online your units frequently freeze and then move again. - The game is waiting for other players to catch up. They are probably unable to run the game simulation at the required speed due to their hardware configuration and their game detail settings. Recommend to them that they re-run the Graphics Options Tool. L. In multiplayer, the game crashes shortly after loading the level and you have a Linksys BEFSR41 v1 or v2 router. - There have been reports of problems with certain firmware versions for these routers. Try updating to the latest version from the Linksys website or downgrading to 1.45.7, which can be found here: www.linksys.com M. Firewall Issues If you have a firewall such as Zone Alarm or Norton Personal Firewall, then you need to make sure that you have given Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM permission to access the internet and to accept connections from the internet. If you have Windows XP and have enabled the Windows Firewall, or if you have Windows XP Service Pack 2, you need to make sure that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM is listed and selected in the "Exceptions" section of the firewall options. To do this open the 'Control Panel', double-click the Network Connections icon, and right-click on your internet connection. Select 'Properties', then 'Advanced'. You should now see the 'Settings' button for the Windows Firewall. Click the button and make sure that the firewall is turned off, or that ' Soulstorm.exe' is selected in the 'Exceptions' tab of the Windows Firewall dialog box. - If problems persist try disabling the firewall. N. Ports Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM uses the GameSpy NAT negotiation system to enable most people to play online without configuring their routers, but you may need to manually open ports to play. - GameSpy can require the following ports to be opened: UDP 6500 TCP 6667 UDP 27900 UDP 27901 TCP 28910 TCP 29900 TCP 29901 UDP 29910 TCP 29920 Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM uses the following port to host games and accept connections: UDP 6112 - Check your router documentation for instructions on how to open ports. The process is very different for different brands and even for different models from the same maker. - You could also try putting your computer in your router's DMZ. Again, check your router documentation for details on how to do this.5. OPERATING SYSTEM-SPECIFIC ISSUES A. Windows Key Interrupts Game in 2000/XP If the Windows key is pressed during game play, the Start Menu will interrupt the game. Should this happen, simply press the Escape (Esc) key to close the menu and return to the game. Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent this from happening again except by being careful not to hit those keys while playing. B. Administrator Privileges Needed To Install On Windows 2000 or XP If you are running Windows 2000 or Windows XP, you must have Administrator privileges to properly install the game. You do not, however, require Administrator privileges to play the game after it has been installed. For information on how to change your user settings to obtain Administrator privileges, please refer to your Windows documentation, or click the Start button and select Help and Support. C. Alt-Tab to switch applications Some drivers do not support the Alt-Tab switching between Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM and other applications. It is highly recommended that you do not use Alt-Tab to switch to another program while Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM is running. If you wish to switch programs, first close Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM.D. Virtual Memory If your system has less than 2 GB of RAM, Dawn of War - SOULSTORM requires Virtual Memory to be enabled.E. Dual Screen Displays Dawn of War SOULSTORM does not support dual-screen displays.WARHAMMER 40,000: DAWN OF WAR - SOULSTORM ADDENDUM1. ACCESSING THE CONSOLE IN Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM The Console can be accessed with the CTRL-SHIFT-TILDE () key. Please note that use of the console is ***not supported*** by THQ Customer Support. Please do not contact THQ Customer Support with console command questions.2. TEAM COLOR MIP LEVELS Currently, the default texture settings for Team Color are optimized to account for AGP bandwidth issues that may occur during online multiplayer games with more than 4 players. To over-ride this extra level of mip dropping and view the team colors at maximum texture quality, add the following line to your Root\Local.ini file: fullres_teamcolour=1 Please note that this setting is not officially supported, and may result in severe performance issues. It should not be attempted unless you have a very high-end system (1024MB of RAM and a 256MB graphics card).3. IMPROVING PERFORMANCE There are several ways to improve the performance of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - SOULSTORM on min and mid-spec systems, all accessible through the Options menu: - Reduce the resolution -- Select a lower resolution from the drop-down menu. - Reduce the Texture Detail -- Select a lower texture detail setting from the menu. - Reduce the Terrain Detail -- Select a lower Terrain Detail setting from the menu. - Reduce the level of Shadow detail -- Select a lower Shadow Detail setting from the menu. - Reduce the Model detail -- Select a lower Model Detail setting from the menu. - Reduce the World Events detail -- Select a lower World Event detail setting from the menu. - Reduce the FX detail -- Select a lower FX detail setting from the menu. - Disable Team Colors -- You can drastically improve multiplayer performance by disabling Team Colors. To do this, simply switch the 'Team Color' toggle in the Multiplayer and Skirmish setup screens. When Team Colors are disabled, all opponents' customized team colors will default to existing presets on your system, saving considerable amounts of memory.4. DEFAULT KEYSA.
