big news, this mod is coming to steam!! that means that we wont have to not only not buy ut2004(or whatever) but there will be legions of Valve faithful playin this mod. This mod will be so friggin awesome on steam. Its kinda wierd, an EA engine on steam, home of the Source engine. Think that there might be an engine swap?

Can't wait. Best WW2 mod ever, and best realistic wargame (if not the only one that's this much realistic).

Whoever packaged the zip files for the games is a *******! I mean, everytime I want to play on a server, it gives me an error that I have something with a version mismatch. It's a great game but COME ON!

NOTE: There was no exaggeration in that last sentence.

Oh yeah, and the char models look like ass. Some of them (I swear…
