If BK works properly then it isn't CoH at fault. I'm willing to bet that it's the 1.016 download like you said.
Here's what you should do:
1. Un-install the mod (instructions here at the bottom of the page: Coh-moderncombat.com).
2. Re-download and re-install. There's a torrent link on our download page (see the link above) if you'd prefer to use that.
3. If you're still having problems, re-download and re-extract both patches as well.
Let me know how it goes. :)
Thanks for the additional info. :)
This is all indicative of a standard SCAR error (which can have a variety of causes). See my post below.
The problem isn't with the .bat files, they either work or they don't. It sounds like they're working fine now that you've moved them.
It's likely that:
a) Somewhere along the line one of your downloads was corrupt or otherwise incomplete.
b) Extracting the patches into the MC folder (rather than just the CoH root directory) is causing SCAR errors.
Did you experience this error before patching to 1.017 or 1.018? Was there one particular patch that caused it?
Or has the error always been present?
Which version of MC do you have installed? And are you up-to-date with the latest patch(es)?
Change your graphics shader setting to "high".
Sorry for the late reply.
Did you download and extract patches 1.017 and 1.018? 1.018 was released specifically to fix this problem (which was caused by the recent 2.700.2.22 Steam CoH update).
The HK416 may appear sometime, we'll see. It'd be nice to have a proper model for the M27 IAR.
ACR I doubt.
What light mortar carrier do you mean?
Are you sure you're running the new Steam version? It counts as an entirely new game in your Steam library, so you may be launching the old version instead.
It's only vehicles that aren't showing up, right?
We considered infantry with miniguns, but figured that forcing US players to tech to armour straight away would be somewhat unbalanced.
I suggest you hold off until I get the chance to upload the RAR version. There's been a wave of recent issues with the installer, and as such we intend to go with something less complicated.
This problem usually occurs because you have different files somewhere.
You could connect to others when you were using 1.016 right? Did you reinstall after that?
If it's only following patches 1.017 and 1.018 then something must have downloaded incorrectly.
So you have version 2.602?
What happens when you try to launch the mod?
Either, although due to Relic's faction lockouts owning just the original will prevent you from using certain factions. ToV would be best.
Sounds like it might have already downloaded correctly. Which version of CoH are you running, the non-Steam retail version (2.602) or the new Steam version (2.700.2.22)?
The 404 error has been popping up a lot recently, we intend to release a simple RAR version of the mod in lieu of the current installer. Should fix all compatibility problems.
Did either of you have a previous version of the mod already installed? And did you both download and install patches 1.017 and 1.018 correctly?
What happens when you try to launch the game? Are you sure you installed patches 1.017 and 1.018 in the right place?
Thanks for the sentiment, but the competition ended last year. :P
It's a known bug that we've been unable to solve (and since the harrier will eventually be replaced by the Super Cobra, it's not a priority anyway).
In the meantime, you can fix the bug by holding down Alt and rotating the camera around it. No idea why it works, but it does. :P
We're making some big revisions, it may even be a complete re-release depending on the scale. No definitive date.
MARSOC are in the Air Superiority tree. :)
AFAIK that issue isn't anything to do with the MC installer. See this thread for more info (hopefully it helps somewhat):
1.018 mainly fixed the crash caused by Steam version 2.700.2.22.
Next big patch may be a while off, we'll see if we can fix some minor issues in the meantime.
The base game and shortcuts are unmodified. You launch the mod via a separate BAT file.
I intend to release a simple RAR version of the mod in lieu of the current installer (which has been causing a multitude of problems). If you don't mind waiting for a day or so then that should avert your Avast issue.
Does it happen every time you play? And only on that map?
Have it apply a squad upgrade or slot item to the vehicle. The ability should require that the upgrade/slot item NOT be present.
Glad to hear you finally got a reply.
Yeah. 1.016, then 1.017, then 1.018.
Have you downloaded and extracted v1.017 and v1.018 yet? If not, do that now.
Then go to your CoH root folder. For example, mine is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch".
There should be 2 files there named:
- Modern Combat Launcher.bat
- Modern Combat Launcher Cheat Mode.bat
Move both files into your ModernCombat folder (also in your CoH root folder), and overwrite when prompted. Use those .bat files to run the game (either normally or with cheat mode enabled).
Are you "NightmareUS"?
Which version did you download?
It's likely something failed to download correctly.
We did have custom DLLs that were broken, but no custom factions (our factions overwrite the default vCoH ones). So we were able to fix the problem by disabling the DLLs.
