Was born, is living... will die.
Have you installed OF? Are you using the Steam version of CoH?
I just started uni again and I'm also busy studying for the GAMSAT (med school admission test, taking place exactly a fortnight from now).
I only have to make a proper Steamworks trailer and then the release can go ahead... but as my in-game time is a bit limited right now, you might have to cut me a little slack. Sorry. :\
Once the mod is released on Steam, it should automatically merge with your existing version then.
Where is it currently installed?
Approximately a week if all goes according to plan.
Apparently the BAT files don't work for some people (no idea why). In lieu of explaining the workaround here, I'll just link to this video:
Seemed to help in his case.
It's not actually on Steam yet; this is just a preview. We'll make another announcement when it's available.
The reason we made 1.019 a full release is that there were certain alterations that couldn't be patched.
If you wait a few days then I can provide you with a quick-fix patch. However I can't guarantee that it won't compromise online connectivity with other players. When we release on Steam, you can use Steam to standardise your local version with everyone else's.
Oh wow... he really did post it to every major CoH mod page.
Thanks for the offer regardless. Just waiting for DMz/Beefy to be freed up.
No, you'll still need the base game. But it'll be much easier to install, update, etc, and hopefully more people will become aware of it.
Why can't you play it?
We aren't quite at the point of begging yet mate. :P
We recently found out that this occurs with people who don't have access to all 4 vCoH factions.
You'll need both the original CoH and the Opposing Fronts expansion, or just Tales of Valor (which includes all 4 factions).
No worries. It bothers me too, but unfortunately we're stuck with the current voice files for now. :/

Porting Modern Combat to CoH2 is currently impossible.
You can still use non-Steam/disc versions of CoH, but you'll need to perform a small workaround with the shortcut (see the non-Steam shortcut section at the bottom of this page for details: Coh-moderncombat.com).
It's not an issue of laziness mate. We simply don't have the skillset or resources to undertake such a gargantuan task.
FYI, each vCoH faction possesses around fifteen thousand voice files; it took previous mod leader OnkelSam two weeks just to filter out WWII references from the existing US files.
It's not just a matter of recording voices either (or stealing them, as some have suggested), it's the encoding of each single corresponding Relic sound effect file. And even if we did record custom lines they wouldn't be anywhere near Relic quality.
Extract it to your CoH folder.
Example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch"
Do you have the Steam or non-Steam version of CoH?
Is it an SGA?
If so, you'll have to add it to the MC module file (example directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch\ModernCombat.module").
Yes. Assuming the rework goes ahead.
It's possible, but the way that units move over the terrain makes it extremely ugly and ungainly.
The biggest issue however is that, AFAIK, it's impossible to have an aircraft land, embark/disembark troops and then take off again. Even if it is possible, the amount of animation and coding work required (per aircraft) would be absolutely horrific. :P
Current balance is functional, but not very polished yet. I don't want to sink more time into the rework until I know it's going ahead for sure.
Try putting the custom map files in the following folder: "ModernCombat\Data\scenarios\mp".
Both. We'll keep making any new releases available to both Steam and non-Steam versions.
A buildable airfield is one thing, but unfortunately, controllable aircraft are essentially impossible (at least in CoH1). A fast-roping Blackhawk and a hovering Apache gunship are really the limits of CoH1 modding.

Check the most recent news post. We're hoping to address this in future.
I'm only replying to you because you have a legal disc version. We don't support piracy.

Apparently the .bat files don't work for some people (no ideas why). If you have the Steam version of CoH, try this: Youtube.com
If you have the old retail/disc version of CoH, just follow the non-Steam desktop shortcut section at the bottom of our download page: Coh-moderncombat.com
That's very strange.
If you still have problems, PM me.
Sent a PM.
You need access to all four vCoH factions (otherwise you'll experience the 'instant victory' bug).
