Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III is now live and tens of thousands of gamers are already playing it. The game takes players into brutal battles between three warring factions, where only the strongest will survive.

As a player, you’ll take part in epic battles, with countless participants. Mercy is a word that has no meaning in Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 3 if you want to stay alive.

Unfortunately, Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War III is also affected by a few technical issues that may sometimes severely limit the gaming experience. In this article, we’re going to list the most common Dawn of War III bugs reported by players.

Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War III issues

Graphics issues

Many players can’t customize their graphics settings because the settings always reset after they restart their computers.

Can’t change the settings. They require a restart and after a restart there is always a reset of the settings. yes i press the button apply.

There are also players who complained about low graphics quality even on the highest settings. If you’ve experienced this problem, try switching preset, select High, then hit Apply, and then select Maximum and hit Apply again.

Why the graphic look suck even when I put it on the highest settings. I got gtx1070. Is this a bug because it really look better in the gameplay video. Already restart my pc and update the graphic driver. Its like the unit run on 2D picture background. So hideos for 2017 games.

Dawn of War III won’t connect to servers

Anyone else getting the issue? I preloaded, waited for it to “unpack” took about 10 min. Now when I try to launch it, it goes connecting…..”connection timeout”. Are the servers down for you guys or just me? I tried to restart steam, my comp multiple times and same issue. My internet is working fine.

Mouse issues

Quite a few players also report that they can’t use their mice to move around the map. Unplug your mouse, restart your computer, update your drivers and see if this solved the problem.

Custom solo vs AI. Cant use hotkeys, cant use mouse to move around map. I’m on a 1070 w/ 4790k.

Audio bugs

Sometimes audio simply cuts off. Unfortunately, this issue that affected the beta version of the game still persists after the official launch.

I’ve noticed that some audio cuts off. This includes the announcer (he stops in the middle of a sentence) or the sound of a Requisition Generator being deployed.

UI font is too small

Many players are having a hard time reading all the information available on Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War III’s user interface. The font is so small that turns reading into an effort.

UI and Font are really small is there no way to scale it?
Having a hard time reading some of the text.
