nice mod ... realy like the vehicles... i found a glitch where Ai moves and his team mate crashes his teammates with the vehicle he is drive.. so he receive a -1 score for teamkilling...
just like the original controls of the the original game... it would be cool.
anyways can you remake the WW2 vehicles in this mod for a mutator vehicle for Onslaught game mode? but make then so player can drive and control the turret 2nd player is in the minigun...
and yeah when the AI move to the bridge they start block the road... its realy annoying.

Just re-DL it, it worked fine for me. But last night a friend sent me a 10 day guestpass for RO-Ostfront and it's 1000 times better than this crap of a mod. If you want a good free WWII mod I would suggest you get Forgotten Hope 2 for BF2, and NOT play this mod. The retail version is one of the best WWII games I've ever played, and the mod is the worst WWII mod I've ever played. The tank combat in Ostfront is just......awesome, in all meanings of the word. Can't wait for Heroes of Stalingrad!!!

Crap of a mod? Who the hell are you to praise a dev for its later work that only came to be because this mod was so great for its time? You should really think before you speak, i don't even see any content in your profile that shows you've created anything of your own. It's okay to have an opinion, just don't vomit it all over the place.

It's not realistic at all. Your character can't run 10 feet without running out of breath, it feels like you're sliding on ice all the time, there's no way to reload any MG, the weapon sway is set to high, your allies LOVE to run you and other allies over whenever they get inside a tank, the AI barely shoots and when they do it's always from the hip so their shots go wild all the time and the controls are near impossible to learn. Oh yeah, and the char models look like ass. Some of them (I swear…
