Eastern Front is a free mod for Company of Heroes. Following the ethos of mimicking a Relic Entertainment expansion pack, Eastern Front has succeeded in adding two full new factions, the Soviet Red Army and the German Ostheer, packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.

Company of Heroes 2.602 is here since many days ago... it's time to update Eastern Front guys!! This is the patch 1.40!!

Posted by blackbishop on May 26th, 2011

Eastern Front Patch 1.40

'Rise of the Aces'

Eastern Front Fans,

The 1.40 patch is now released. Containing multiple balance changes, bug fixes, new criticals for all soviet units, new music for soviets, new PTRD-41 model and maybe most importantly and waited, reward units for soviets. Also it was removed the Jagdtiger to give Wehrmacht the Tiger Ace as reward unit for King Tiger, using the Black skin of Schultz's tiger as the community requested; also PE got the Nashorn as reward unit for the Flak 88 and RMC got a couple of surprises.

Also, we proudly announce, three new members that joined roughly since the release of the 1.31 update to our staff:

  • Robotnik
  • Crasius
  • Tiger205

Robotnik is helping us to fix bugs and apply balance changes and also is revamping EF's AI, a share of his work can be found in the current version's AI.

Crasius is helping us to fix bugs and apply balance changes as well, but he also help us to set up stuff in Object Editor, like animations.

Tiger205 is helping us with Ostheer's animations on his free time.

They have been really helpful and without them helping us fixing all the stuff for this update would be... more complicated. Thanks to Tiger205 we have the IS-3 in EF and are a massive leap closer to releasing the Ostheer.

Special thanks to:

  • Sweeten2213 and DMz for sharing with us some Normandy 44 models.
  • 1C team for giving us permission to use some of their excellent models.
  • serg_codmod for sharing with us his model mix of the Naval Infantry.
  • Halftrack and TankDestroyer for their excellent models.
  • PanzerJager for sharing his Gewehr 43 model.
  • Xalibur who made the Nashorn skin, criticals and damage criticals... saving us work ;D.
  • Jagdpanther from RelicNews forums, for helping us to fix some issues.
  • And at last but not least, to the EF Community for supporting us.

Mow developers allowed to use Men of war content in Coh for modding purposes, so it's ok.

Bad choice? He animated all our current backlog of Ostheer models in a week. The guy is a miracle worker.

Yes they still do that, but this is vCoH damage system, of course it sucks. If you want a realistic damage system play Blitzkrieg, Battle of the Bulge or Normandy 1944 Mod. They are one shot one kill kind of battles on those 3 Mods :D

Drag0 May 27 2011, 1:53pm replied:

Yes, I have blitzkrieg and BotB, they are awsome. But they dont have soviet faction... Havent heard about Normandy 1944 before, I'll try it out, thanks.

Before you do try out N44 lower every single setting! That mod is very demanding on your computer! They have many, many, many, many...many skins for every single unit!

N44 is currently at v1.7 and by v2.0 they will have a Russian Faction. CANT WAIT!

Drag0 May 31 2011, 7:39am replied:

Yes, I read that in instructions of the mod. N44 is f**king awsome. Now I'm playing with every single army/doctrine/subdoctrine to test. That mod has many good stuff. Even though I have this mod for few days now, I only managed to test two WM doctrines. Battles are very intense and AI is very challenging. Even normal difficulty gives some competition.

Its crashing for me too.

If you have updated it to 1.4 and it is still crashing I disconnect internet, then it works, press play and put the cable back in and play.

But thats for those who have it updated... If you still have 1.3 and its crashing I have no idea. :[

uunderfire May 28 2011, 10:50am replied:

Well, I proceded like you said, but it is still crashing, and I updated the full version. I found a log in my CoH folder . It first said that the server wasn't available, and after a second crash (with no internet connection on my computer) it said that the distant name couldn't be resolved 'www.files.easternfront.org' . This might be a problem with the server no ? Maybe too many people try to connect at the same time ?

Nice update but the a.i is very bad the soviets only build infantry and su-85 never t-34 or kv-1,after 20 min. respawn kv-2 ans su-76 never build another tank and when you play with allied a.i is horrible only respawn off map units.

ok figured this launcher thing out...if you DL'd the 1.4 patch and it fails to launch...uninstall entirely...then look in the Downloads tab of this page (under the EF title @ the top)...get the FULL 1.4 launcher....install, then disable your internet connection...when the launcher tries to open it will say "internet required to play" or some such BS...ignore this, the launcher should come up any way...go to settings and UNcheck the auto update...then enable your internet and it should play just fine...i did this earlier and havent had any new errors :) hopefully this problem will be properly addressed as soon as feasible
