Level Designer, 3d Artist & Lead Animator at Archaic Entertainment. If you have issues with Company of Heroes: Eastern Front write it in my comments I'll try to sort them out as fast as possible.
Kind of error is not really precise. What exact error do you experience?
Thanks for your longstanding support!
We'll definitly keep on! It's always good to get motivation from people like you, you are the one's we are still doing this for :D!
Well download the latest EF version and then apply the compability patch afaik this should work as only one .dll file changed (this won't change with newer versions of EF).
2nd solution, you activate your retail coh cd key on Steam and use the '(New Steam Version)' to run EF :P.
Just to clarify:
1. Update CoH to the lastest none Steam Version
2. Download and install the lastest EF version onto it
3. Then download and install the compability patch
It should work that way.
We won't add support for that but as far as I remember there was a combiner mod that allowed you to have allies vs allies. However that was like two years ago and I doubt that it still gets updated. That's why you can try whenever it works, but we won't offer you any support for it.
What is the exact problem?
Did you complete the installation and EF is missing?
Are you sure that you checked/picked the right path?
Do you use the (New Steam Version)? or an old Retail version with the compability patch?
You should be able to switch them in the reward unit tab.
We have had such big units sizes some time ago, but decided to stick to smaller ones to increase performance (the internal squad AI works better with less members in it) and gameplay (1 sniper vs guards squad with 9 men would be madness).
Glad that you figured out the problem, have fun playing EF!
I think it should work just fine, considering that it should version unspecific. Just try it out :P.
it is a Company of Heroes 1 mod, so yes. You only need one of the above:
Company of Heroes (1)
Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor
No, we didn't add winter skins.
If you mean Corsix's Mod tools. Then here's the link: Modstudio.corsix.org
It's for; CoH, CoH:OF, CoH:ToV
Can you please upload a screenshot of that message?
Did you run the installer with an administrator account?
Do you have enough harddrive space (duh)?
You can still play the vCoH campaign but EF does not add a custom one. So it basically just covers Skirmish and Multiplayer.
About the error we would need your logfiles (or a screenshot) to sort that out. It seems to be very specific.
It will get removed in the next patch, it was just in for testing.
Pretty hard to say, it's kinda not up to us at the moment. We are waiting for an exe fix by Relic, for Steam release :P.
Yes, there is just move the cheatmod.scar into the SCAR folder of the mod. It will screw up the checksum though so you won't be able to play with anyone anymore.
Can you open a thread on our forums and post the necessary logs with it, please?
It's unlikely that we'll add additional factions because the Essence Engine has trouble coping with 2 extra factions already (new factions will increase loading times and overall memory usage, because the Essence Engine does not over a deload function, which means for a game which has no brits, brits will still be loaded). We are however working on additional reward units that will bring some alternativ tactics to the game.
About horses, yes it would be possible but it would require a big amount of work that wouldn't be worth the effect. (3D model, custom animations for infantry and the horse etc. Also it would probably screw with the pathfinding). There is however a Eselschrek (Donkey-Shrek) ingame that comes close to horse movement.
You can try to setup the mod tools and then export stuff into the game. It's not easy though.
That's unusual and an error I never heard off. Probably an error while moving files and "exporting" outdated files? That's the only explanation I have.
You gotta check out SCAR-Coding for that.
Thank you :)
Well, people still can install skin mods if they do not like the default tank models.
Hardcoded, can't change it :P
Buy company of heroes and then you can play.
Very unlikely (mainly cause we rely on stuff from the base game) it still will be released on Steam as an independent download though.
This is the replacement for the normal minesweeper we had and these are just generic ingeneries.
There's a difference in that mod and ours. They replace the existing factions. We add additional factions, that's where our problem starts. If Relic won't release a fix soon, we'll try to do a work around. Sorry for waiting but we would prefer a clean fix instead of a dirty temporary solution.
