Hey. I play a lot of Call of Duty 2, 4, Battlefield, and Brothers in Arms. I run a youtube channel, JakvsMetalheads999, which I mainly upload playthroughs on to. I'm pretty interested in history, World War II, the Korean War,and Russian history in particular.

Jax18 @ American Civil War: Brothers vs. Brothers

Update: so the files being messed up was my fault, on account of me not properly uninstalling ACW. Got rid of the whole thing and am reinstalling Empire now, hopefully I didn't do any permanent damage.

This mod is really something else though, honestly, I'd say it rivals the quality of The Great War for Napoleon in terms of sheer attention to detail, unit variety, research done. But for all that, it's probably something like 40-60% complete, and that's just not enough for it to be recommendable. It's missing a lot of core features and the lack of polish can really break it for some people, myself included. If you have Warpath for Empire and you don't get trainwrecked by bugs that make the campaign unplayable, then it might be fun for a while, but otherwise, what's there isn't all that fun to play around with for more than a few days. It's sad that no one's working on the mod, and I hope someday someone will come back to it and finish it to its true potential. Doubtful given Empire's age and the amount of effort it would take, but stranger things have happened.

This mod has amazing potential. What's completed is absolutely excellent, so much time and care went into it that I can't ignore it. That said, it's unfinished and the mod team has abandoned it... and it's not finished enough.

No naval battles, no scenario battles, big lack of polish through most parts of the game on account of it being unfinished (such as no names or pictures for government ministers, certain skins being unfinished and using immersion breaking 18th Century vanilla Empire placeholders, etc), and a myriad of bugs ranging from annoying to game breaking.

Another fun issue I had with the mod was that when I decided to uninstall it, it told me that the main ACW file needed permission from the administrator to delete it. I am the administrator, so I was pretty confused. After going through several online tutorials and hours of research to try to get rid of it through changing permissions around, and failing, I ended up having to delete the ACW folder via safe mode. I'm pretty sure that's screwed up something with my ETW's file integrity, because despite Steam telling me all the files are accounted for and uncorrupted, and after an uninstall and reinstall, I can't get the game to launch, so... yeah.

What's there deserves praise, but not much IS there, it's not worth the trouble of getting it installed, and not worth the risk. My Empire files might be permanently screwed. Uninstalling and reinstalling again to see if that will fix it. In short, if someone decides to go back to this mod and finish it someday it might be great, but as of right now, stay away. It's a shame it was abandoned... it was on track to being one of the greatest ETW mods.

Wiesenaue might have been a little too far east for the Americans or British to have been present in any battle that might have taken place there. Out of curiosity I pulled up a map of the final positions of the Allied armies, and it seems that that there might have been one American and one British army in the area, but I can't see exactly where Wiesenaue was in relation to them.

Here's a link to it, could be useful to you:
En.wikipedia.org

It might be more accurate to make the enemies Russians though. Whichever way you choose to go, the map looks fantastic so far, good luck and I hope to play when it's released!

Jax18 @ Back2Fronts Mod

I love what I've been able to play of this mod but so far three major errors have pretty much made it unplayable at the moment.
*1. The game crashes during the black and white "military channel" cutscenes before each campaign. Not a huge deal but unless I'm pounding the left mouse button as fast as I can before those cutscenes start so I can skip them, those missions with the cutscenes are not playable for me.

*2.The game crashes on the "victory" menu after completing a mission when I click continue or main menu.

3.The mission select screen was blank, I fixed it with the Developer 1 workaround WCP mentioned, but now I'm getting run time errors on every mission. I tried turning the logfile off in the console as was mentioned here earlier, but it was already set to 0 and didn't work.

*By crash, I mean the game freezes up and stops responding. I've walked away from my PC and given it half an hour to unfreeze before coming back and using the task manager to close the program. I'm fairly certain that it won't unfreeze, so I consider it to have crashed.

Any help would be appreciated, and in the meantime I'll try reinstalling both CoD 2 and B2F. Also, it might be worth mentioning that I'm using the german language add on with the mod that you guys developed. I doubt that's causing problems, but I'll mention it just in case.

Jax18 @ Back2Fronts Mod

I'm getting problem number 1 as well, I'll try to take a screenshot of it at some point. I don't have any mods installed, in fact, I had so many mods installed that I deleted all of CoD 2's files and did a clean reinstall before downloading Back2Fronts.

I'm also having an issue with the game freezing up and not responding every time I click the continue mission button after finishing a mission, forcing me to ctrl alt delete out of the game (I've waited ten plus minutes, it doesn't unfreeze). This, coupled with the blank mission select screen, has basically made the mod unplayable for me at the moment, hoping there's a solution.

How do I uninstall this? I literally can't even play the game anymore since I downloaded this, it freezes on the Activision logo.

Does this mod significantly decrease performance on lower end PC's? I can run the vanilla game ok at mid to low settings, and can run the Darthmod versions of Napoleon and Empire perfectly at mid to high settings.

It isn't dead. The last actual post was a long time ago, but he's been putting up pictures showing the progress he's making, the most recent of which he put up yesterday. It's still in active development.

They look awesome, but I'm wondering what the use would be for the winter Shermans considering the only winter missions are in the Soviet campaign.

Jax18 @ [015] Version 2 FULL

So, do you need to put the notepad files into the CoD2 folder as well or just the .dll file?

EDIT: nevermind I figured it out on my own lol

Is that the radio tower from the tank mission in World at War?

Hey I'm having a bit of an issue. I installed the english version, but when I try to launch it, it says "The procedure * could not be located in the DLL mss32.dll." I have tried pretty much everything to get it to work. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, tried changing where I installed it to it, I've tried actually inserting mss32.dll files into my CoD2 folder, and so far nothing has worked. If anybody knows how to fix this, help would be appreciated. Also, I got my copy of CoD2 off of steam if that means anything...

Was kind of looking forward to playing this, but after 5 years of nothing I'm pretty sure it's dead. This was a great idea, real shame it never saw the light of day...
