Back to Basics: A Company of Heroes mod merging realism with balance and improved design. This mod reworks all aspects of the game to create a Company of Heroes experience that we feel is what 4 years of evolution of the original game could have looked like. New units, new damage model, new strategy and tactics while keeping damage output, technological rushes and all unit statistics in tight check. This mod also features massive AI improvements, spanning from fixes to broken features to total overhauls of AI combat behavior and strategic decisions.

Hello, I got a problem with my mod here. After awhile playing the game, the mod is crashing down and its telling me to verify my TEMP folder (something to do with the space on that folder...), but I got no idea how to verify it. I hope you, the creator can help me with that. By the way awesome mod, really good sound effect with artilleries (LOVE THAT!) and great tanks and soldiers.
Thanks! :-)

While I was extracting a file BackToBasics to the directory CoH(NSV) there are some files are corrupt. And when I play skirmish mode, all freeze and not move, Anyone know why?

Simply try extracting the entire archive again, see if that works. Maybe you accidentally cancelled the extraction before it was finished?

We have v5.0 very deep in the development stage, but I cannot promise when or if it will be released at this point. Mainly because we are both not very active with regards to CoH at this point in time.
