[UPDATE: A hofix has been released to solve the inventory bug for Original Men of War and partially solve it for Assault Squad 2 (vehicles work now). A future patch or version is expected to completely solve this. Get the hotfix for the correct version in the downloads section.]

This is a full release of DCG 4.5 for original Men of War and a beta release of DCG v4.5 for the Men of War: Assault Squad 2. The Unit Pack is not included in the Assault Squad 2 release because it is still being worked on.

Please note that the version for Men of War: Assault Squad 2 has a number of issues still:

1) The most recent patch broke the mechanism that allows soldiers' inventories to carry over to the next mission. This may be fixable in the next version of DCG. [Update: fixed for original Men of War, but not entirely solved for Assault Squad 2]

2) The minimap and some material files do not reload between missions due to caching by Assault Squad 2. This can lead to strange textures on some maps and the minimap being incorrect. There is a workaround for this: the problem goes away if you go all the way back to the main menu of Assault Squad 2 between missions (or exit the game entirely). It is not possible for the DCG team to fix this, but perhaps Digitalmindsoft will fix it if users request it.

3) There have been problems getting the mod.info file to work with new patches. It is set for the current patch from Nov 17th, 2015. Future patches will require users to manually edit this file with the new patch version in order for it to continue working.


Also, a friendly reminder: Zeke, Ngvede and others on the team have put many hours into the vehicles, skins, and other content. Please do not re-use the content without giving credit (and please ask their permission, too). We see too many cases where someone uses their models without credit and then another mod, which would have given credit if they had known, re-uses those models without credit, too. Please help keep them motivated by making sure this doesn't happen!



NEWS! From today (2016-03-01) the DCG team no longer allow any other mod to use our work WITHOUT a written permission from us, and mods that uses our stuff, must have a proper credit list added. Mods that existed before this date, is allowed to use the work that has been released in earlier DCG´s, but all new models etc that is included in DCG4.5 (and future versions of DCG) is affected by the above. The reason for this, is due to the fact that the new stuff we added in 4.5 is already appearing in other mods without us being credited for our work.

Dear developers, it would be nice if Your Mod has implemented the ability to dig trenches for the infantry and vehicles. For example, as it is implemented in Mod Valour (for Assault Squad 2).In my opinion by passing of the Campaign this feature would be very useful. As far as I know, the map relief is preserved under passage of missions. It would be very practical, capturing the map to dig trenches on it, and then during the next mission in the attack AI use ready-made trenches.

Hey there. Great mod so far, played a lot of it for AS and a little for AS2. I was just wondering is there any news on the unit pack for AS2? Probably the only thing that kept me from playing more was that I got a bit worn out fighting in the Pacific with 155's and infantry. Other than that, it's been a great mod (especially the AS1 version, MoW felt a tad outdated but that's just me). Keep up the great work :)

This is a very good mod. For myself, I ordered units of the German Soldiers Mod (GSM). It would be great, if there was an option mode with units of the GSM.

Sorry but we only add stuff to DCG that we've made ourselves. GSM also uses a lot of our models, 95-98% of the Italian vehicles in GSM are for example, made by me.

Hello, the mod is asking me for .game pak file which contains .pat 1-5.

It asks me when I extract the maps. Is there any way I could fix this/get the files?

If I don't have them the mod crashes when selecting map.

I've checked and re-checked the videos and I am 99% sure there's no problems with my installation folder destinations.

Thank you

I guess that you are refering to Men of War and not Assault Squad 2. If so, is your MoW game updated to the latest patch (1.17.5)?

That's the problem. I have Men of War Assault Squad 2 & I don't have the files it's asking. Am I missing something?

I downloaded the correct file (beta 4.5) but now It says some maps are missing when I successfully extract them & go to the operation screen. Their respective minimap images are also missing. Any way of fixing this?

Do you use any other mods that DCG? Or have you added any maps by yourself?

I do have 2 other mods but they're deactivated. No maps by myself either. As I'm writing this I'm trying to manually delete all the missing maps out of maps.xml but a serious amount are missing. I'm talking about dozens. This is one example

Did you click on the "Extract" button in the DCG settings?

Of course. Followed instructions exactly like shown both IN video & text. Deleting maps from the xml has made my encounter with missing maps less frequent but it would've been cool to play on extra maps. Playing the same thing in a generator defies the purpose right? I would really like to find a fix.

When you successfully extracted the maps, which directory did they extract to?

Your screenshot shows that you have AS2 installed in an unusually location on your harddrive. AS2 is typically in the steam/common folder, and DCG defaults to extract maps to this location as well.

I noticed that there were files moved around my MoW AS2 & the campaign mod folder so I believe the extraction was successful to the campaign mod folder. Is there any way that I could re-direct the extraction location? Where can I check where it's being extracted? Other maps work correctly. There are just a bunch that seem to be missing.

This is what I have in my maps folder: Imgur.com

Sorry but i cannot access that website. Look under the settings tab of the DCG menu where you can hit the extract maps button. The top two lines define where the game files are and were DCG is on your harddrive. Then when you click extract, DCG uses those to locations to move the files. Make sure they are both correct.

Yeah, both of them are correct & the files get moved successfully. Like I saw in the video, DCG only moves maps that come from the game so as to not make a bigger file right? When I play without mods the game works normally.

This is definitely the most useful mod I have discovered for Men of War. The ability to randomize a campaign and create a group of grizzled vets through many missions is very appealing. In fact according to Steam I've clocked over 800 hours on the game. This mod has kept the game fresh the whole time and in conjunction with the ability to alter model files I can basically apply this system with any war fighting scenarios that are available. (Check out the Total Krieg mod for new models.) I'd give…

Not balanced at all, retarded money system. After 3 rounds you will get spammed by enemy with 20 tanks vs your 3 inf squads or 1 tank ( that's all you can get because you can't get more resources....
