[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.

Hi! The mood looks very interesant and promising, but I must agree with one user here, on the third mission I only have points to buy one weak tank and the enemies have loads of them.

The forth mission is impossible to acomplish because I only have a bunch of points and the enemy has entire armoured divisions.

Why is that? Is it a bug? Can it be fixed somehow?

You do the same as you would´ve done in real life, retreat. Simply save as "result" (or whatever you named your save file in the settings as) and consider the battle a lost one. You´ll lose a few points but your unit will survive to fight another day.

DCG isnt meant to be an easy ride, it is meant to be cruel and unforgiven.

Also, DCG also add tougher enemy resistance when you tend to win a lot of battles. If your unit is proven to be a deadly enemy, it is only natural for the enemy to send in better equipment against your unit.

And keep in mind that certain units, like the UK Matilda II raises the chance for the enemy (Germans in this example) to get a better chance to get the 88mm antitank guns to counter your tank.

I dont really get it. What should I do, for example in the map 3, when I only have a tank and I see a lot of enemy tanks in front of me, do I just save game and go back to DCG menu, to start another map?

If I lose some points, on the next map I would have the same problems, just one unit against loads of them...

what you can do is to mess around in the mod files to change the enemy numbers multiplier and change the costs of some units, to make it a little more challenging and still not being unrealistically outnumbered you should try to balance things out, but still you will get some crazy enemy divisions with lots of armour but eh, nothing is perfect isn't it?

No, since you "lost" the last battle, the enemy will think of your units as a lesser unit, and you´ll be facing a lesser amount of enemies. Of course, you might still end up facing heavy resistance though.

When you keep winning one battle after another, you´ll be facing tougher and tougher resistance but when you lose/retreat, you´ll simply be facing less and/or easier enemies in the next battle until you´ve won enough battles to see more and tougher enemies again.

Also check unit symbols on a map you attack. By right clicking on the symbol/map, you will see what the enemy unit has for kind of units, like tanks, howitzers, infantry (but not the type or exact type of tanks). Maps without any unit symbols on them, is either easy prey, or simply a map which you havent got any information about and thus, it can contain anything from a single mortar to 10 heavy tanks.

I'm getting a problem while extracting maps upon install. I get an error for java.lang.System saying it threw an exception and this seems to mess with the map extraction because it never says done.

Pastebin.com is the full error report.

When I try to play the game it routinely gives me an error saying map not found so please help.

Do you have Java installed on your PC?

Have you followed the tutorial "how to install DCG 3.0" (its the same procedure for v4.5 and the online tutorial can be found in the tutorial section of our moddb page). If you follow this tutorial, DCG will work correctly.

Keep in mind that DCG v4.5 is only for vMoW and MoW:AS2, MoW:AS is no longer supported.

If the above doesnt help, ask us again for more help.

I just painstakingly uninstalled and reinstalled Java from my pc and nothing changed :(.

I've already followed the tutorials to their word including the one you specifically mention.

Also yes I have MoW (vanilla first one) and installed the correct version of the mod for it.

I've never seen or had the same error myself, and I've helped 100's of people getting DCG to run on their PCs. I'm only playing vMoW myself, so I know for sure that 4.5 do work on Windows 7 64. Hopefully Jason1 will reply to your question and be able to help you. He is after all, the guy who do all the coding.

Some of the maps work but a lot of the squares say Missing Minimap and those are the maps I can't play on. So for now I'm just gonna try to play the maps that work.

Can´t understand why you get that Java.lang error. As I wrote earlier, I have never seen that error before, and your Missing Map error, is the same as several other people have had (when asking for my help) and in all those cases, it has been related to them not installing the three necessary subprograms (.NET, XNA and Visual #J).

Double checked my installs and Visual J wasn't installed. Could've sworn I installed it. Lol so that was the problem thanks for the help. Everything works great now. Awesome mod.

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....
