Was born, is living... will die.
When it was first proposed it wasn't very well-received by the rest of the team. So I added it to HC as a sort of demonstration (like a lot of the other initial HC changes).
The MC version doesn't give you free squads, just a small manpower refund for each wounded man recovered.
I'll give it a shot when I get some free time. :)
A good idea. Maybe we could stage the announcement of tech trees and doctrines rather than individual units.
Flak is fine. Much better to receive (constructive) criticism before everything's polished up. :)
You probably already know that we've been planning some major revisions (almost a complete re-release in fact). It may be better if, like you said, we make the process more public and open to critique/suggestions.
We've had design documents for a while and I've already completed a lot of the core coding, but we don't have many fancy new assets to show off just yet. However we DO have a huge number of unconventional ideas that we think will be new and innovative.
So maybe what we'll do is release some faction outlines and possibly some YouTube shorts to demonstrate the more unique gameplay concepts we're introducing. Right now I'm extremely busy (4 assignments due within the next week), but I'll see what I can do once I find some free time.
I didn't even know we had Hesco assets. :P
Can you upload a screenshot? It's possible your game is bugged.
Actually... that's almost definitely the case. Can't believe I didn't think of that. :P
Download this archive and extract it to your CoH folder.
I know exactly what you mean; you're talking about the names in the lobby. I've heard of this happening before but I can't remember the reason for it.
The re-extraction is just to make sure all files are in the right place.
PS: The actual factions work though right? You can play the game without any other adverse effects?
Try re-extracting the mod. See if that helps.
Look forward to seeing it.
And just to confirm: CoH is updated with the latest patch?
Ah... it shouldn't say that.
Which version of CoH do you have installed? Which expansion(s)?
The dots are just there to make the Army and Marine Corps more distinguishable at a glance.
I commend you for making it operational. Your modding skills are getting better and better. :)
Pretty sure the Linebacker has been retired though?
We're currently looking at ways to revise our anti-aircraft mechanics. We have several innovative ideas up our sleeves. :)
This problem might also be due to your soldier detail settings. Set the slider to max and see if that works.
And yeah, high shaders like AAMC said.
EDIT: Nevermind, I see you already fixed it. :P
Maybe we're already planning to add Rangers. :)
Check the ability RGD. Make sure the target action is pointing to the right slot item.
Also check the slot item to make sure it's pointing to the right weapon.
Ve haf plans.
We don't have the manpower to replace unit voices.
They're supposed to be wearing woodland camo. However the custom US soldier model has an extremely complex array of states that often conflict with one another.
We discovered recently that this bug occurs due to players not owning either CoH expansion (Opposing Fronts or Tales of Valor).
The problem seems to be that his BAT files aren't working.
Could you tell me the exact directory that you extracted the mod to?
And is CoH installed on the same hard drive as Steam?
Are you running it with the BAT file included? Or are you just using your normal CoH shortcut?
You need to browse to your CoH folder, go into the ModernCombat folder and use one of the two launcher files there.
AFAIK both Steam and CoH need to be installed in the same (C) drive for the batch file to work. It might work with modification, but I'm not the guy to ask. :P
Try posting on the forums to see if one of the other devs has any idea. You might end up having to install CoH on your C drive if you want to play the mod.
Wait, you game ONLY works with ultra (Dx10) shaders? Over two years since release and I've never heard that.
UPDATE: It's come to our attention that attempting to play a Skirmish game without owning either the Opposing Fronts or Tales of Valor expansions will result in an 'instant-win'. To our knowledge, this only applies to players using the new Steam version of CoH.
If anybody can provide any more information on this then please PM me or make a post on our forums.
Alright, upload the screenshots on our forum. Could you include one of your graphics settings?
You need to download the file above. Version 1.016 (with the installer) is obsolete.
