Hi everyone. Time for another patch!
We haven't changed anything major this time around, however there are some important alterations that should probably be explained in more detail.
Firstly, we've disposed of the old MSI installer, which was becoming unintuitive and causing issues with repeat installations. We've reverted to a simple but reliable archive format instead.
We've also added an Uninstaller to make things easier. If you have an existing version of the mod, you need to uninstall it before extracting v1.019!
For detailed installation instructions, please visit our official download page at the following address: Coh-moderncombat.com
Secondly, we've added 7 new maps by Omnicron and Unreal-Eugen, who have done a fantastic job in not only making these maps for you but in finding innovating new ways to use existing assets. We hope you like them!
We've also removed a number of unconverted community maps that were added to the mod despite being set during WWII and containing no modern assets.
The team has been quiet lately; we've been reduced to only a few people, and we're all beset by real-life obligations that have drastically reduced the time we can contribute to further development of this mod.
That said, we hope to persevere and have exciting plans for the future. It'd be premature to make promises at this point... but if all goes as planned then you can look forward to a new iteration of Modern Combat unlike any that have come before it. More news on this at a later date.
We hope you enjoy Modern Combat 1.019, and that all the players who have been experiencing installation problems can finally run the game without issue. Sorry it had to be a full re-release and not just a patch, but it was the only way for us to ensure everyone stays compatible online.
