This mod has been in development since 2007. Some major features are: Corpses of the fallen will now permanently stay, population caps have been increased, and new units. Each faction receives one hero unit, you can play with and against any faction, and there are Heroes, crazy stuff (like The Maus, Powell, zombies,...) can be activated or deactivated in the reward menu. It also contains an Infantry Only mode, Early war mode, No Pop-Cap mode, and Quick Start mode in the victory conditions. This mod is only for fun! If you are looking for complete realism, try another one.
This mod is compatible with Company of Heroes, Opposing Front and Tales of Valor patched to 2.602. It also contains a combiner compatible with Eastern Front v22.214.171.124 !! NEWER VERSION AVAILABLE !!
EDIT: newer version available here: Moddb.com
----------------------------------- Installation ----------------------------------

Advice: It is recommended to defray your Disk after installation for better performance.
From time to time, it would be useful to clear the folder
C:\Documents and Settings\NHC\My documents\My Games\Company of Heroes\LogFiles
uninstallation: just click on the uninstaller
If the game crashes with a report to Relic before getting to the main menu. It means that there is a conflict with another mod.
The easiest way to solve it is to delete the other mods. The other is to find the .ucs in the folders:
that is not made by Relic (i.e. by the bad mod) and move it apart.
How to start the combiner mod?
Once you have installed correctly EF and NHC in your Company of Heroes folder (check it!), you can start the combiner mod.
To start the combiner mod, click on the shortcut on your desktop or on "Combiner.bat" in your "Company of Heroes" folder. It will automatically load both mod and mix them.
The Eastern Front mod is available here:
(It is a very big mod so it is highly recommended to defrag your disk after installation)
If you don't have both mod, the game will crash. Note that the Combiner gives priority to Eastern Front. So every features of
Eastern front are present with the combiner some part of the NHCmod are missing (e.g. Light tank cannot crush infantry, lower max pop than in NHCmod, ...)
The combiner also supports the Joint Ops mod which can be downloaded here:
Strategyinformer.com (with installer)
Filefront.com (without installer)
BONUS: Another add-on is available for the NHCmod. You can have german voices for Whermacht and PE and English for US and Commonwealth.
