Cross of Iron is a Company of Heroes (CoH) mod that’s main aim is to balance the four factions in the game and their respective doctrines.

Its secondary aim is that of historical accuracy, but without making severe compromises in gameplay.
One of the main features of this mod is that it intends to do the above without making major gameplay changes to the original CoH experience, so no one-hit-kill AT shots or huge-range Howitzers.

A very important feature of Cross of Iron is tailoring the units, abilities and upgrades to be more specific for each Army Doctrine, balancing cons with pros, while also adding some new build options.

As examples, the fearsome Knight’s Cross Holders are now available only to the Wehrmacht Terror Doctrine in order to give them a better late-game infantry unit and more incentive to play with, while the Panther needs an extra 'phase' in order to unlock it and the US receive an AT Bazooka Squad to better counter Axis armour.

Another important feature would be the usage of High-Quality community skins that better differentiate one 'army' from the other as well as make the game more immersive, with different camos and accessories. These HQ skins carry on to the SP Campaigns as well.

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.

Not really. All mods become un-useable in SP when they've been heavily modded. No one knows what causes half of the errors, and it's certainly beyond our abilities to track them down and fix the bad code. The issues with saving and loading save-games and data from previous missions (like Carentan) can't be fixed by modders.

Immediately after it happens, go into Documents\My Games\Company of Heroes\ and copy the Warnings.log, and email it to cross.of.iron.mod(at)gmail.com
(but replace (at) with the @ symbol)

along with as much detail regarding what stage of loading/playing the mod as you can.

That'll allow us to start to investigate the issue and hopefully fix it.

Can you play this mod with the original COH

You need to have the game patched up to v2.601 or v2.602 (the latest version), but otherwise yes, you can. However, if you don't also own Opposing Fronts or Tales of Valor you will only be able to play with the original factions that you have access to in CoH.

No big updates planned, i'm fairly happy with CoI as the next version in development currently is. We're mostly working on bug fixing, adjusting the balance of some units, better skins, and adding new or better quality models.

There's not much more we can add in terms of new units unless they're just part of a random call-in ability, but we do have a few nice ones that are still planned, we're mostly just waiting on the models.

Only those that work on regular CoH, we haven't added any additional ones like Cheat Mod.
