The Great War is a modification for Company of Heroes meant to bring the war two decades earlier. This mod focuses on the later years of the First World War. Currently the two teams will be the British Expeditionary Force against the German Empire, however with time the team will try and bring some more nations in, such as France and Austria-Hungary. This mod will focus or realism but keep the game balanced enough to make it enjoyable. Things to look for in the mod are the famous artillery strikes and the infamous gas attacks. Trenches will provide vital cover for infantry while tanks will roll over the battlefield and instil fear into the enemy troops.

I'm sorry, but it took two hours between download and changelog upload.

Besides, isn't it kinda standard to either include a changelog in the download page, or a .txt in the download itself?

No. The news post containing the changelog was posted four hours before the download. However, the ModDB admins took longer to approve the former, hence why it wasn't available when the download was authorised.

The French won't be included before several months.

Also, version 2.0 is when the French will be introduced. Version labelled 1.x will all be balance changes of the existing factions.

Hey,

I know it won't be historically accurate, as the mod is set in 1918 and tanks were everywhere in the western front, but is there a possiblity to add a "infantry only" mode, to ensure absolute trench warfare and massacres?

I forgot there was a reply button so, just ignore the other comment.I think this could be done in online since the AI are to dumb to put trenches It would be best played in the Grand Offensive mode. I personally have been looking for people to play with me like this but haven't found anyone yet.

That's not going to happen.
1) it takes at least a year to develop a whole new faction (and that's an optimistic assessment) so by the time we're done with France and Austria-Hungary it's likely we will move on.
2) the mod takes place in 1918; the Russian Empire had already fallen and pulled out of the war in 1917 because of the revolution.

BTW, I love this mod, and cannot wait to see the French! Any chance of making a fourth army to join the Germans? Austrian-Hungarian Empire might work...

don_durandal Apr 24 2014, 8:37am replied:

Did you mean the file you downloaded from a mirror is not an exe? To fix that just add .exe at the end of the file name (you'll need to change your options so that file extensions are displayed).

If you meant that after extracting the mod's files you can't find an exe to start the mod, then that's intentional. As said in the installation tutorial, the mod is started from a shortcut on your desktop: Moddb.com

You didn't install the mod at the proper place. Since the shortcut links to where you installed the mod files, if you didn't enter the proper directory for CoH then the shortcut will also not link to the proper target.

See the tutorial for a detailed walkthrough: Moddb.com

You can install on top of it. Just overwrite the old files when it asks you to.

The old installation is not necessary though. v1.2 has everything in its installer.

Either 1) add ".exe" at the end of the file name (you might need to enable the display the file extensions in your windows folder settings)
or 2) try one of the links at the bottom of the news post: Moddb.com

The mod does not cover the whole war, but the timezone from the german spring offensive to it´s defeat. This happened in the year 1918, hence why the mod is named TGW1918.

Dont get me nationalistic, but, i think that Serbia should be put in the mod too, since everybody thinks we started the war, and we broke the Solun front, and Italy should also be put in. Just saying. Btw the mod looks awesome, gonna download it tomorrow! :D

Dear The Great War Mod Team,

I would first like to congradulate you on the stunning, and utterly amazing modification for Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, It is perhaps the best modification I have yet to play. Your fanatical and tenacious defense of historical accuracy does you great credit. I also fully realize the amazing ammount of work that must be put into every single feature. But I must plead with you to make a American Faction. Now I realize how much work would be nessesary to construct a whole new faction(Atleast a year or so I heard) But I think, since the similarity of the American and the British armies, just a Skins change would be fine. Do you think this would be apporpriate? Perhaps do-able?

Does it happens with all maps?

Try manually removing all mod files, and then reinstall the mod. It might be that some files were not installed correctly. Also if you had a previous version of the mod, it's possible that the old files were not overwritten.

Some people have also reported sync problems when using the reward skins. Try disabling those.

This mod is freaking great and keeps getting better.

Also now the tank combat and anti-tank weapons seems spot on. (I used to struggle to bring down Mk IV's for some arbitrary reason).

You can use both. However the steam version is a better choice as it is up to date. The retail version requires looking for patches online, as the mod is only supported for versions 2.602 and up.
