Someone told me that in Dawn of War, there is a toggle to turn on automatic reinforcements.  Meaning that when a squad (even the builder units) is eligible to add another member to it, that will happen automatically.

Anyone know where this button is?  I can't find it.

Vegas -

I know that each squad has it.  Don't know if there is a UNIVERSAL overwatch command though.

At any rate, when you have a squad up, simply right click on the double plus sign (++) and you will see it begin to flash.  This means that particular squad is on overwatch, and will auto-reinforce.

Simply right click it again to stop the overwatch, and auto-reinforcing will stop.

There are a couple of small buttons to the right of the minimap that allow you further control over this too.  One button (red with a square) allows you to tell the game to stop all active overwatch immediately.  The other one, yellow with 2 bars in it, allows you to temporarily pause all active overwatch in case your cash flow is hurting and you want to spend the requisition on something other than reinforcements.

One huge thing to keep in mind

is that once your unit hits its full amount of whatever you overwatched (weapons / men) overwatch automatically turns off

So say you build a squad of space marines, put them on overwatch, they get a full 8 and a then marine dies, more marines arent automatically queued up

You can also overwatch your structures that produce units (not upgrades however - too bad)
