HowTo / Notes

directX 9

After you installed the game you may get a performance boost if you use the latest version of DirectX 9.

The easiest way to do so, is using winetricks:

Corrupted textures?

If you have problems with completely corrupted textures the problem might be that your systems lacks a library that is used for texture compression in Dawn of War.

Under Debian based system install the package "libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0" and try again.

Tweaking Graphics
Dawn of War's settings are quite careful chosen which means that you could improve the graphics a lot. Here is a guide on tweaking DoW's graphics which sums it up.
