Webmaster, Public Relations and Voice Editor of the CWC-Team.
Formally (2008-2012) also working on Public Relations, Gameplay & Balance and English Translations for the Blitzkrieg-Mod for Company of Heroes.
Better late than never. Thank you! I hope you'll have an awesome year 2017 too. :)
Not dead, but finished since 2009. ;)
Thanks for the nice words guys (all of you). :)
@nukebox: Yes it kinda is. And even tough some players wish we would work on another project, we simply don't have the time anymore. All of us work in full-time jobs now and some have families to take care of. So there simply is no time for projects like CWC (or CWC 2) or anything like that anymore. Sadly.
But CWC will always be our "baby". We enjoyed the time working on it and we all learned a bunch while doing so. CWC and it's community will always have a place in our heart. <3
Or just DL them from the file section here. I just uploaded all patch files for manual installation. Have fun. ;)
You can try DL'ing the patches manually from our partner Flosoft.biz:
Uhm, do you really think IRL soldiers inside buildings are invincible? O_o
They have some kind of cover and concealment, but they also die when getting hit. If you want arcade gameplay, maybe CWC is not the mod for you.
Try the "Addons" section here on our ModDB profile (Link: Moddb.com. A lot of users have uploaded their custom maps here. If you still want more, download our "Genesis" map-creator. It will automatically generate new maps so you don't need to know about map-creating at all. ;)
Uhm, there is no NATO in CWC. ONly SUA and USSR. We canceled the EU faction a long time ago due to time-management problems. Else we would have never been able to release CWC at all.
Depends on your playstyle. USSR has a big fouc on ground units while USA has more diversity if it comes to air units. If you love big tank assaults, go for USSR. If you think bombing your enemy from above is the best thing ever, try USA. ;)
To install it, simply extract the content of the RAR archive into a new folder and specify the path to your ZH instalaltion if it cannot be found automatically.
Further documentations about templates etc. can be found here:
I hope this helps.
Yes, it should also be possible to use it with other mods or even vanilla C&C Generals if some code is changed to fit those. As GENESIS is open source, anyone can fiddle around to make it fit for the mods they desire.
In the current version it was optimized for CWC maps of course. ;)
Skleni probably can answer this better than me though.
Infantry only was only included for testing reasons in the beta and is NOT final or even official. Some new units are still buildable there.
The option to select infantry only will probably be removed with the next update already. This mode is heavily unbalanced, bugged and the AI is super-stupid. Simply don't play it. It will be gone soon.
Also: BK is NOT compatible with campaigns. We have changed so much to the building menus that some missions won't work with the pre-setup units made by Relic. BK is a sole Multiplayer/Skirmish mod.
It already is, but all uploaded files have to be checked and authorized by the ModDB staff first and that takes up to 24 h.
BK is not stricly limited to the Normand part of the western front. We cover the whole western front until 1945 (Italy anyone?). Ferdinand (or in our case "Elefant" to be more precise) units had also been used there, not only in Russia.
If BK would focus on the fights in France/Normandy only you would see a lot less units in BK.
You were saying?
Yes you can.

To solve the pink gun for the AT-Halftrack, visit our Open Beta Forum and look for the bugthread of it (should be in the "Closed" bugforum now). There I psoted the required files to get the skin for the gun back. Sometimes if your installation fails, those files don't get copied. You can also re-install the Open Beta to fix this.
BK works fine with the v2.602 Trainer from Cheathappens. Guess what we use to make testgames when we make the pictures or videos for ModDB. ;)
To get support on BK problems, please visit our Forum and search trough it. Most problems have already been explained/solved over there.
We located the error and are already working on it. It might be already fixed in one of the upcoming Open Beta Updates.
Some of the videos are not up-to-date anymore, that's why you can't find the Schwimmwagen. ;)
As the thread implies, you have to be a full registered member on our BK-Forum to get access.
AVG Anti-Virus? It often gives a false positive because of our Launcher. In roder to check for the installed BK version, it searches the Windows-registry for the BK version number. Some Anti-Virus Scanenrs report that as a Trojan or Virus, but there is no danger in our files!
Nevermind, found you. You are a regular Member and should be able to see and download the Open Beta.
Please PM me your Forum name. Only fully registered memebrs can see that Open Beta Forum. So in case your account is still "validating" you won't have access to it. Make sure you clicked the validating link for your account that you should have received via E-Mail.
Not here, on our Forum. No idea how it got there, but fixed.
