Make sure there is a folder called "CheatCommands" and a file called CheatCommands.module in your CoH2 root folder. Note: In case you are using Windows 8.1, there are currently some issues with running mods on W8.1.

I used both methods; method 2 first, I pressed play, all I get is "App is already running" but no game start. Method 1, I created the shortcut, I followed it to the dot, making sure there isn't a mistake. I keep getting steam is too busy to process request. I tried this twice to make sure.

All files are in correct places. I checked everything and all I can say is that, it's probably because of Win8.

I'm glad you got it sorted out by yourself! I've heard about issues with Windows 8.1. The way you got it working just doesn't make any sense though.. there is no -dev mode currently available. Thanks for posting though. I will let the others having issues with W8.1 know about this.

You should not try using this mod at the moment. Relic disabled mods with the latest patch. Please see latest news for more information.

If you are using the LE version (discontined), I am unable to help you.
If you are using the ULE version (currently 0.7), please be more specific.

I have a problem too. Whenever I start the game through steam it says its launching, then once it disappears it pops up again. It repeats this and never starts the game. Ive tried lots of ways like "-mod cheatcommands"
"-dev -mod cheatcommands". But it continues to do this. Help?

Edit: Ok i got it to launch but its still wont work. im not sure the way i did it this time was it couldn't find it so it didn't work? The new way i did it was "-dev -modcheatcommands" "-modcheatcommands" without the quotation marks. Is there anything i can do to fix this?

There is no more module file. The ULE versions do not use the module anymore. To use the mod just extract to the COH2 folder, add dev to the target (or Steam launch preferences) and when you are at the menu press Control + Shift + ~ (to the left of 1) then type in the following:
dofile("ccm/ccm.scar")
That should load the mod.

you can get CoH2 really cheap on Kinguin.com.au it is a legitimate site for discounted keys for Steam/Origin/Uplay/Battle.net. I have made multiple purchase on this site myself and it is really legit and I am very suspicious of game key sites as there are ones out there that sell keys that won't activate.

I hope this helps.

first of all, Thank you for this mod. It is difficult to obtain a working trainer due to the excessively frequent updates this game receives on Steam.

Is there a command for invincible units? I would like to know that. if not, could it be added to the next update of the Mod?

Thank you for your hard work.

when I install the mod and set up the parameter in my shortcut, Steam won't run the game. It spends 3 seconds preparing to run the game and stops its run script prohibiting the game to start. I guess Valve discovered this mod and blocked it as Steam despises cheating. :'(

and good luck finding an up-to-date trainer. it seems like the game is updated on a daily basis and I believe that is for the sole purpose of prohibiting trainer use.

I believe we as gamers have the right to cheat on this and any other game as long as it is in single-player and not at the expense of other players.

For Windows 8, I launched the game with Steam, with -dev in the launch parameters, then while in a custom match I did Shift + Ctrl + ` (Tilde key) to open console. Which then I copy and pasted "dofile("ccm/ccm.scar")", and it worked for me.
