I just downloaded the latest gametap client and used the cider from it for DoW:Dark Crusade and all the bugs are fixed ;) :D

The cursor works and the sound is perfect.

Also, I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed that there is a auto update program for cider in the gametap build?

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn Of War also works :P using the same method as used for Dark Crusade.

Hey guys, first off I'd just like to say thanks. The method of using the GT cider to play Dawn of War has worked perfectly for me so far. This was also after hours of frustration tinkering with crossover. GT cider is hands down the best method for this game at least. There was only one issue I've run into so far, and that's the online play. I added my cd key to the system.reg file, I'll cut and paste below. I was wondering if any of you have gotten the online play for Dark Crusade to successfully work. Even after adding my key, it still says cd authentication failed on the multiplayer screen.


[Software\\THQ\\Dawn of War - Dark Crusade]
"CDKEY"="<insert the cd key>"
"InstallLocation"="C:\\Program Files\\THQ\\DarkCrusade"

Any ideas on this? Thanks.

I have been trying to get it working online also, but it seems like loads of people using wine are having the exact problem.

Here's the CDKEY codes for system.reg

[Software\\THQ\\Dawn of War - Dark Crusade] 
"CDKEY"="xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"
"InstallLocation"="C:\\Program Files\\THQ\\Dawn of War - Dark Crusade\\"
"W40KCDKEY"="xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"
"WXPCDKEY"="xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"

[Software\\THQ\\Dawn of War - Dark Crusade\\1.00.0000] 

[Software\\THQ\\Dawn of War] 
"CDKEY"="xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"
"CDKEY_WXP"="xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"
"InstallLocation"="C:\\Program Files\\THQ\\Dawn of War - Dark Crusade\\"

I still get cdkey authentication errors after replacing the x's with my cdkeys :(

Seems like loads of other people do aswell from looking on the wine AppDB etc. Workd fine on singleplayer tho.

Also to play the other races you also need the other 2 exe's (W40k.exe & W40kWA.exe) which I also have tried but it doesn't seem to make any difference :(

I'm gonna do some testing when I get home in a few hours (regarding both the cd key authentication and the multiplayer races), but I bought the dawn of war platinum set a few days ago, and I could play the single player of any race. I'm assuming this is the same for multiplayer as well, although I've only played one of the new ones in skirmish. I do see the original dawn of war files in that directory, but there is no W040k.exe or anything like that. I'm not sure if this is how it's supposed to be. It also didn't even prompt me to enter in keys when I installed the original dawn of war + winter assault on crossover, yet it did when I installed dark crusade. Dark crusade seems to be its own completely separate entity for me.

You can play singleplayer any race without any cdkey in the registry at all :D

If you look on the official relic forums, playing all races on multiplayer on a standalone DC install has always been a bit of a problem. Altho it can be overcome by manually adding the registry keys for DoW+WA and also copying the original DoW+WA EXE's.

Here is the howto on getting all races in multiplayer with only DC installed (without DoW/WA).

Ok so far still no dice. I used your registry entries and replaced them with my keys, I used the ones I posted before. I even used the complete and original system.reg from crossover, which is where I installed it. This makes no sense because the registry entries from crossover contain all the entries originally created by the installation of DoW:DC. I know some people somewhere must have this working, and it's becoming very irritating.

I tried for a while, but gave up in the end. I'm just going to use the cider version for now to get some skirmish practice.

I booted into windows and have everything on full, FSAA on, high detail models and highpoly on. The FPS on windows, even with the high camera mod is completely stable with all of this on. But on cider, the fps was fluctuating on fights ^_^

I have exported my DoW + DoW:DC registry to a .reg file now, so might give it one last try using those values. Altho I doubt it will make any difference :blink:

Yeah, I think you're right. Cider cannot completely replace a separate windows installation. It looks like I might just give in and install bootcamp.

Has anyone tried Vice City with Leopard?
It seems to work fine, but when I try a mission, and it cuts to the video, it goes to black and basically crashes....

Any one else had the same? ;)

To anyone who got Oblivion to work : I tried to run it to no avail with the GT Cider. I used a clean Oblivion with the latest patch installed and no DVD patch from GCW, and it stills complain about no dvdrom on the system. I tried adding a cdrom to the Cider config file but it doesn't work, anyone could help?
