What works

Game Installs through steam fine, once steam was setup correctly (see steam howto's). Sound worked flawlessly, video was choppy but mainly due to my slow computer.

What does not

The 2d Icons and images sometimes do not show up properly, instead showing up as squares of color. Also font was distored and almost imposible to read at times.

Workarounds

What was not tested

different computer/graphics card.  Mine is a Gforce 440go.

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.
