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 v1.3.0.2 !! NEWER VERSION AVAILABLE !!

EDIT: newer version available here:

----------------------------------- Installation ----------------------------------
1) Delete any previous version of the NHCmod
2) Execute and follow the instruction of the installer
3) Just Click on the shortcut created on your desktop to play the mod!
4) Do not forget to chose what units you want to activate/deactivate in the reward menu

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: (with installer) (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.

How to do that?
Simply download all the files from here:
and put them in the "NHCToV" folder. The mod will automatically load them.
If the forum is down, here are the links for the needed files: (German voices for Wehrmacht) (German voices for PE and English voices for Brits part1) (German voices for PE and English voices for Brits part2) (English voices for US Skirmish) (English voices for US SinglePlayer Missions part1) (English voices for US SinglePlayer Missions part2) (German speech file for Tiger Ace campaign) (English speech for 2nd ToV campaign) (The original German speech file with one file from english version for 3rd ToV campaign)
(It is recommended to defrag your disk after installation)

The mod works, only the combiner crashes because EF is broken with the latest patch.

Have been playing your mod for around a month now, really enjoying it! Great work, excellent with the EF mod.

But tonight I heard aobut your open beta for 2.601, and decided to give it a go! (Mainly for the Maus).

But after downloading the .rar file I extracted it using bitzipper, changed my properties around so it extraced it into the company of heroes folder. Before then I had already deleted the old NHC folder as mentioned in the installer, but when I tried to open the .bat folder nothing would happen.. Looking around the folders a bit more I realised that there wasnt a installer. and the .bat folders wouldnt work even if i changed the target line.

Is there any way you could give me a hand? Or if someone can guide me through the set-up?

The installation of the beta is also straightforward, you just have to delete the old version, extract the rar in your company of heroes folder then click on the NHCToV.bat file.

When will the combiner mod be patched so NHC and EF can work together again. Currently when the combiner mod is played only EF attributes are loaded and NHC attributes are not. Note: EF was pathed for the new COH 2.602 patch. NHC works by itself though with COH 2.602. But the combiner mod appears to only load EF.

Is it correct, that the NHC only has more units than the Combiner with EF on?

And how to play online, with both mods, or 1, like NHC, or only EF, because it's not working with me here.

A friend of mine and I have same versions, through Steam, updated both, but cannot connect :S

Just download this file, install and run nhctov.bat or add -mod NHCToV -dev to the end of your COH shortcut

Great work on your mod, can't wait for your next version :)
BTW, how did you add the 'traitors' feature?

When I make clone copies of the rgds and change their the online race ids and switch their race types, the score screen is screwed up.

No matter what mixture of teams I put in, allies always display in the top and axis at the bottom. I saw in one of your screen shots that the score screen was fine with some axis in top and allies in the bottom.

4+ axis or allies always freeze.

Thanks, looking forward to next version
