CoI Lead Developer Lethal Dosage officially announces the mod's death.

Posted by on

G'day guys.

LethalDosage, the lead developer of Cross of Iron here.

There's been a long silence from us Devs around these parts. In that silence many of you have wondered if the mod's dead, and i think it's about time i made it official.

Cross of Iron is dead.

Sadly work stopped about two years ago due to unresolvable crashes, frustratingly poor AI (and lacking the talent to rewrite script and improve it), CoH's transfer to Steam, and the lack of free time stemming from real life distractions.

Everyone here on the CoI dev team has moved onto other projects, and i've been forced to not only move away from CoH 1 modding, but cut back on gaming in general.

I myself in particular have poured years of constant work into this mod, from it's humble beginnings as a balance and bug-fix mod, to what it currently is. It has truly been a pleasure developing this mod and bringing it to all the CoH players who've tried it and loved it, and i thank you all for sticking with my mod and following it to this quiet end.

Thank you all, and good night.

Well, this stuff happens. Quietly fading into death is probably the best way for a mod to go when it's time for it to go.

It was fun while it lasted, though, and that's what's important at the end of the day.
