Eastern Front is a free mod for Company of Heroes. Following the ethos of mimicking a Relic Entertainment expansion pack, Eastern Front has succeeded in adding two full new factions, the Soviet Red Army and the German Ostheer, packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.
[REQUIRES COMPANY OF HEROES PATCH 2.601] Released on the 1st anniversary of the initial Eastern Front release, the 1.30 & 1.31 updates brings a lot of new goodies to the Eastern Front.
27th March 2011 - Now also with new music!
The 1.30 Patch is a huge update. For starters our very own team member, Cope fixed the hardcoded bug known as "The Recrew Bug" or "Strawman Bug". This allows Soviet to Recrew Heavy Weapons, such as MGs, AT-guns and even the dangerous FlaK 88s.
Following up is another highly anticipated new features, the Royal Commandos Marine Brigade (RMC). The RMC is an optional "Reward Faction", activated like a reward unit and alters the tech tree and a lot of units in the Commonwealth Faction. For more information on what it changes, please see the changelog, where detailed information about the RMC is available.
On top of these already large inclusions, we have also added some additional balance from the upcoming Company of Heroes Patch, done major balance changes to the Soviets and added some new maps. On top this, we have added a special new style of solo-play, The Red Tide/Blitzkrieg challenge. It's the first of hopefully many challenges. The idea of challenges comes from Company of Heroes Online, where Relic plans to add a lot of them.

A small bug noticed: The captured zis by PE troops do not have defensive or offensive upgrades.
do you have to erase your previous version and did you add updated skins
You can delete it if you like, I don't think it's necessary. Yes, some skins were updated.
which ones i diddnt see any updates with the t 34
I just checked and looks like the T-34 has it's new skin.
i will have to eras emy previous version or something because i didnt see it
If you can can you make a patch with a battalion or squad that are called shtrafbat(Штрафбат), back then when soldiers were needed they took prisoners into a separate battalion and made them fight until they got a battlefield wound and were sent to a normal battalion. It would be very cool if a new patch would come out with this and this is historically accurate.
The Achiles has no sound when he fires.
The load of card goes for a half and droops! What is a problem in?
Has this fixed the game crash glitch?
That depends of what "game crash glitch" are you talking about.
when i hit play game it says mod is up to date?
ive been having problems with this mod for to long now.
I just got Company of Heroes Eastern Front. But when I went to play the game it said "unable to locate Company of heroes directory." I purchased COH(vanilla, OF, and Tales of Valor) through steam. The EF mod is saved under C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\Company of Heroes. I have a 64 bit Windows 7 OS. Any help would be great.
The "retreat to Medical truck" ability is using the same ui_postion as the booby trap ability of the partisans.
Confirmed, will be fixed on the next update.
it doesn't work for me, i have just installed the game with no problem, but when I launch the launcher if EF, they tell me "Estearn Front is Up to date". I have a windows 7 32 bit, and COH OF, but he is not updated ..
Sorry my english isn't very good, i'm morrocan and i speak french !
I got the mod but it says 'can not us sovet army'
great now it's crashing on me any where any team (and i still do not have the soviet army) can u help me!!!
and now Coh O.P is opening not E.F
Create a topic about you issue here:
when i click play a pop up says eastern front up to date and does not start.help me.
Wow. The first versions were so buggy you couldn't finish a game before it crashed. Now, the launcher crashes before the game starts. I guess it saves me some time then. Thing is, I would pay $40 for it if it worked properly. Too bad.
Too bad you don't know how to read... too bad.
It isn't like I haven't read the pages and pages of tech support threads on the EF site since the mod came out. In fact, I have managed to get it to run past the launcher after an hour or so of trying different solutions, re-re-re-installations, etc. But the game still locks up, just like the previous versions - every time. None of the players I know can run it long enough to complete a game. Like I said, super excited about the content, but its just not ready. It doesn't appear, from our perspective, that the basic bugs have been worked out in the first year, but we still give kudos to the attempt and we still hold out hope.
What are your pc specs?
It's weird that behaves in that way... Did you and your mates try lowering your settings?
I've played a lot of matches and only a few ones crash, from last 20 online matches i remember just one crashed, and was playing a 2vs2 skirmish(2 soviets against 2 wehr AIs). Does always crash on skirmishes or also in PvP?
Any mod that adds a lot more stuff is prone to crash in due time, because CoH engine isn't stable under that amount of data, let alone if the user barely have the requirements to run ToV, however EF needs more than ToV.
Of the 5 of us, 4 of us have tried lowering the settings, afaik.
Skirmishes crash 100% of the time. PvP doesn't always go on long enough to crash as the connection dropped about half the time - and that was never an issue for us with vanilla CoH. Crashes usually take place about 20-30 minutes in.
I will PM my specs
There is something odd with the Bergetiger. You can see the main cannon of the Tiger on it and on the wrecked Bergetiger too. Was it on purpose?
No, will be fixed on the next update.
look at the hulled achilles, no defence.
I think it's a model problem, we'll try to fix it for the next patch.
I downloaded the first version of eastern front. but the sovjet army was too superior! is it still that superior?
You can try it out by yourself ;).
can i play it in window 7???
Yes, its compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7 (32 & 64 bits).
i cant update my coh:tov its says "a complete,valid company of heroes installation could not be found".i reinstall my coh but the same thing happend!!,i need it to unlock the soviet faction!!!!,btw the game always crash when i play as other factions
i just redownloaded the patches amd i still can't us the soviets
and now it's crashing as i try to pay as anybody
Try lowering your settings, Eastern Front needs more resources than ToV to run properly.
If that's not the reason, please upload your warnings.log and your dmp file of the crash(located in temp folder) to our site, in this section:
I went to the Easternfront.org because when I hit play nothing happened, and I uninstalled it but I have no idea how I can manually switch the install folder to CoH folder.
Sorry for double post but I failed big time, great mod guys keep up the great work.
That means you fixed your problem??
