Sorry, that was a reply to "PIZZAguy247".
My reply to you was on page 1.
"So you were able to play online before installing 1.018?"
You should be able to input a custom directory. Is that not working?
Wait, how long ago did you download 1.018? You may need to move some files around.
From the patch description:
If you downloaded the previous 1.018 .rar (before 22/01/14) then the .bat files are in the wrong place, and thus aren't disabling the updater. Once extracted, please move the following files from your CoH root folder into your ModernCombat folder and overwrite when prompted:
- Modern Combat Launcher.bat
- Modern Combat Launcher Cheat Mode.bat"
So you were able to play online before installing 1.018?
Not sure actually. Although v1.018 incorporates some other improvements as well, so it's still recommended that you download it.
Won't start at all.
You'll get that and more.
What do you mean by "map" exactly? The ModernCombat folder and module file(s)?
I don't know exactly what's happened, but I know that patch 1.018 hasn't been installed properly (for whatever reason).
Can you walk me through the entire process? What did you do, and in what order?
Extract the .rar to:
"D:\steam\SteamApps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch"
"D:\steam\SteamApps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch\ModernCombat"
That's the exact problem patch 1.018 was released to fix. Where did you extract it?
Other races are an impossibility for us right now.
Thanks a lot. :)
Did you install the 1.018 patch properly? It was released specifically to fix the problem you're having.
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. :/
