Does this happen as soon as you try to run the installer? Or during the installation process?
Did you install the 1.018 hotfix?
I'm assuming you've installed the 1.016 release and extracted patches 1.017 and 1.018 in consecutive order.
It sounds like the mod didn't download correctly for some reason. If you can, I'd recommend re-downloading and re-installing. There a torrent link on our download page (http://coh-moderncombat.com/?page_id=1111) if you'd prefer to use that.
Let me know how it goes.
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. :)
AAMC4's correct. The US only operates one main battle tank, and is working towards a lighter armoured force that can be projected more efficiently (Stryker brigades for example).
The Bradley is essentially a non-doctrinal light tank anyway. It has similar capabilities, especially when upgraded with a TOW missile pod.
It's just not possible for us at the moment. It's one of the few remaining problems that we can't address. :/
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.
Sorry for the misunderstanding, that was a reply to "wesasaurus". ModDB has a strange way of stacking posts and replies. :P
I've replied to your comment on the previous page.
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?
You need at least one version of CoH (the original, Opposing Fronts and/or Tales of Valor). Note that to use all 3 Modern Combat factions you should have all 4 vCoH factions unlocked.
Download and install full release 1.016. Following that, download and extract patch 1.017 and then patch 1.018 (instructions are on the download page).
You need to bring it up manually. Check our download page for guidance:
Make a shortcut to either/both of the .bat files inside your ModernCombat folder.
Maybe. Although the number of special forces units (Marine Special operators + Navy SEALs) is still the same.
We experimented with direct fire for hardcore mode, but it led to sporadic crashes. So we removed it.
That sounds exactly like the problem hotfix 1.018 was released to fix.
Are you sure you extracted either/both patches to the right place? Should have been in your CoH root folder. Mine for example:
"C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch".
PS: If you downloaded hotfix 1.018 after 22/01/14 then the files are in the right place. They were only incorrect in an earlier version of the patch.
There may be some similar changes sometime in the future. Voices will have to stay as they are though, that's something we're powerless to change atm. :/
If you play using CoH v2.602, then online multiplayer will be disabled. You'll need to use external clients like Hamachi instead (basically long-distance LAN connectivity).
Not with our current team, no.
Yes. But it's recommended that you use the "new Steam version", which is unlocked when you input your CD key(s) into Steam.
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.
