Modding software & tutorials

Postby zachar » Tue 19 Nov, 2019 7:04 pm

Hey!

Right now I am just playing with rbf's using Cope's DOW2 Toolbox. I was wondering if you would recommend any other software that is more friendly to use?

Could you drop some tutorials and other resources for modding?

I'm also currently looking for such stuff. On relic news forum a lot of information and guides were available:
- Tech Heresies (DoW2 Homebrew Modding Tools and Reference)
- [HOW TO] Common Lua and SCAR errors: Identification and Prevention
- List of Tutorials and How-To's - Updated March 24, 2011

There is also the dow2mod wiki which shows some RBF usage examples:
https://dow2mod.fandom.com/wiki/DoW_II_Modding_Wiki

A French website with some good tutorials:
http://dawnofwar2plus.toile-libre.org/

And modsrus is an especially good resource for dow2

Unfortunately some things are still lost to time. For example I was unable to find a copy of Miguel's RBF Editor.

Thanks Deflaktor! Didn't know old relic forum is still accessible.

Impregnable could you advise where to post modding questions on discord? I asked on technical-discussion yday but no response there.

Technical-discussion is the right place. You just need to keep on posting until someone answers.
