There have been entire expansions to other games which were smaller than this patch.

Though I'm glad to see it being supported in the way it has.

Your wish is granted.

The patch is available from Fileplanet (http://www.fileplanet.com/156748/150000/fileinfo/Warhammer-40,000:-Dawn-of-War-Patch-v1.40).

Nah, no new intro. I don't know what athamas means either. Maybe I'm missing something obvious. Can't find a readme file though.

(took me almost three hours to download this monster).

Whoa, looking cool. The continued support for Dawn of War is amazing :eek: The dead bodies look gives the game even more Warhammer 40,000 feel. Imagine an Ork and IG infantry battle :eek:

No no, drivers are....things basicially (I am not good at explaining), basicially go to your graphics card providers website. It's most like either ATI or Nvidia. And go to the drivers section, that should explain it...maybe.

Also v1.4 is very shiney, I love the dead bodies.

Drivers are a software which basically establishes a connection between the hardware of the PC and the card.. it usually enables special functions of the card and displays it.

Many times when a game crashes or is not working properly it is due to bad or outdated graphics drivers so an occasional check is not bad. Up to date drivers also boost the performance of the card most of the time.

I guess you have either an NVidia or an ATI card.. check which graphic card model you have, go the manufacturer site and download the appropriate driver.
Read the instructions and install the new driver.

I've not got it yet - I've heard it kills all the mods, and I finally got dark angels so theres no chance of my updating this side of winter assault.

Sure the mod teams will realase updates, but would you realy want DOW 1.4 running with persistant bodies with the total war mod (tripples pop cap)??? Now thats sickening..
