What is "Europe at War"?
EaW is a historical mod for Company of Heroes that adds new battlefronts with new commander trees, abilities, units, vehicles and weapons for each, representing in the best way, as far as possible, historical accuracy, to immerse players in a much more realistic gaming experience. Situated on a Western theatre from the warm sands of north africa, italian battlefields, beaches of Normandy, Dutch Tulip fields, the muddy scheldt and the defensive lines of the Rhine in germany. (may be considered a "6 in 1" mod )

Command the 8th British Army or Rommel's DAK. three new doctrines for each army and new real units prepared for combat in the desert.
Tanks and anti-tank can yield the maximum in the great plains of sand, but we must not neglect the sky: the RAF and the Luftwaffe are in constant fight for the air domain.

Allied troops landed in Italy from sea and air. During this long campaign the Allied and Axis forces fought fiercely for every hill and every village. The companies just have very few heavy tanks due to the mountainous terrain. The defense, aviation and artillery are imposed.

The paratroopers were sent far from their objectives and scattered, even so achieved most of its objectives. Landing troops took heavy losses on the beaches but finally forced the withdrawal of the defenders. Hedges became death traps for the infantry and Shermans. The German anti-tank and machine guns were hiding in any corner. The Luftwaffe was almost nonexistent and allied air supremacy makes the difference against the powerful axis tanks.

What at first seemed a perfect plan became hell for the Men of the XXX corps. The paratroopers met their targets quite effectively, but were isolated from the armored support, fighting with heavy casualties until run out of ammo. The only American troops (82nd &101st; airborne) are dropped more near and could join the British tanks, but the German ambushes on Highway 69 delayed the progress and finally stopped the offensive.

The Patton and Montgomery armies prepare to cross the Rhine, trying to secure the bridges, using boats and floating bridges. Gathered ammunition, soldiers and tanks. The artillery constantly bombard the opposite river bank, while the German divisions were entrenched to resist attack. The axis used the remains of the Luftwaffe, artillery and V1 rockets to try to destroy the remagen bridge, but without success. At this stage were used late tanks like the Jagdtiger, the M26 pershing or the T26E1 Super pershing.

Hello Dartborne,
your Mod has great potential, but there are still many bugs and include balance problems.
I'm really a big fan of your mod, one of the few that work with the campaign.
But please continue to work and fix the problems, then it would be really perfect.
The only thing I do not personally like are their self-created maps, I find them a bit failed, if I may venture criticism.
Already have any plans and release date for version 7.0?

It seems I have found a bug - or at least something that needs to be fixed.

The british commandos can camouflage themselves - which is nice, no problem, but they STAY camouflaged, even if a enemy unit is right next to them.
I tested this with a friend, even bikes, which are made to uncover snipers and camouflaged units, can not see them, they even drive around the invinsible units.

This is not only unrealistic - its massively overpowered, because commandos stay camouflaged when they plant explosives and throw grenades. So these guys can wipe out entire bases or kill squads of Fallschirmjaegers without any chance for the enemy to react.

This needs to be fixed, good camouflage is one thing, but perfect invisibility is ridiculous.

Es un caso común de rendimiento. El ordenador no puede con todos los procesos a la vez y se crashea...

Prueba en mapas pequeños, 1vs1 por ejemplo, a ver si también te pasa, y si eso, con poca población para no sobrecargar el sistema con muchas tropas.

Se que parece que el bk tiene mas cosas que EaW, pero la verdad es que este tiene mucho contenido "en trastienda" que también afecta.

Que tal Dartborne!!

Pues hice pruebas y pues tenías razón, ya no lo puedo jugar al maximo en 2 vs 2 le tengo que bajar los graficos y aun asi solo se puede maximo 3 vs 3 y es una lotería puede crashearse o no dependiendo de la doctrina que tome la compu.

Por cierto hablando de doctrinas, la de tanques con los panzers elite me es imposible tomarla, la tomo le doy aceptar y me vuelve a poner las 3 doctrinas para escoger, ¿¿como puedo solucionar ese problema??

Por cierto las infanterias ahora se mueren muy rapido, en la mision para sacar a los canadienses batalle mucho, porque los respaldos de la metralla .42 alemana, me mataban los escuadrones enteros y eso que los estaba flanqueando, ademas de que permanecían invisibles hasta que ya casi estaba a 1 metro de ellos.

La sangre se ve genial en algunos momentos, pero en otros se ve raro digo antes no estaba tan acentuado, pero se agradece.

El tigre perdió demasiado rango de tiro, recuerdo que tenía un rango parecido al panther y ahora ya es mucho menor.

Y bueno eso es todo de momento no he tenido mucha oportunidad de jugar, pero lo que he jugado es magnifico, saludos y gracias por el enorme trabajo.

Pues anteriormente podía jugar 3 vs 3 sin limite de población con el máximo de graficos, se me laggeaba un poco a veces, pero no pasaba a mayores, deja me pongo a hacer prueba y error con los settings del juego para ver que procesos dan sobre carga y bajarlos y los otros dejarlos altos, es que la verdad me duele bajarle a los gráficos, se ve hermoso, gracias por la respuesta deja hago pruebas y mas tarde o mañana te digo como me fue, saludos!!
