Special Thanks:
-------------------------------------------------------
Special thanks to GOD. I couldn’t have done any of this without him.


MCh2207Cz and the Back2Fronts Team have played a huge part in this mod. Without the addition of some of the Back2Fronts models the Hard Core Tactical Mod would not have turned out as good as it did. So I’d like to give a very special thanks to MCh2207Cz and the Back2Fronts team.


Other special thanks go to “Triby” the creator of the 1936-1939 Spanish Civil War Mod for allowing me to convert some of his maps and models and include them in the Hard Core Tactical Mod.


I’d also like to thank Wicopp A.K.A. WCP for the inspiration to start making this mod in the first place.


And last but not least, I’d like to thank my wife Princess who put up with me through all of this.

How are you post to use the mortar for the missions especially the american mission market garden or the british one where you need to use the mortar to destroy the roof top machinegun??

Normally : "Mortar/arty is called in by first looking through your binoculars at your target and then tapping the “USE” key for less than 0.5 seconds. >0.5 secs calls in an air strike"
There *seems* to be a bug on that mission though anyhow. No matter how many times I mortar the rooftop MG it cannot be destroyed.

If you get such a bug, my (layman's) suggestion:
A] try a soft reset by pressing 'M' at the very beginning of the map or B] try a different route to reach the problem point.
(On some mods I've noticed that being a few steps to one side or another is the difference between a script getting triggered or not.)
Sometimes retracing your steps and wandering around/ varying your route back does the trick.

@ kevinhua56

1: Make sure that you have no other mods installed.

2: Make sure that zzzz - HCTM_01.iwd through zzzz - HCTM_10.iwd is in your main folder.

3: After that, run your CoD2 game and go to...

Options/Gamed Options and click on (HCTM default settings).

Your HCTM game should work correctly after you do that. Good luck.

Slikk, I have a few British based suggestions
1. Change the Sten Mk V to the Light Assault Rifle category, as its mostly paratrooper weapons
2. Add this for the British as an assault rifle En.m.wikipedia.org
It'd be nice to see the British with assault rifles
3. Soldiers in North Africs can sometimes spawn with a New Zealander Lemon-squeezer helmet
4. Maybe a British Monte Cassino mission?

@ greyshadow

This is from the manual...

9: To switch from full auto to slow auto mode, you must first have a weapon that has slow auto mode, then tap the “USE” key without running. You will hear a single click to indicate that you are in slow auto mode. To switch back to full auto mode, tap the “USE” key again without running. You will hear a quick double click to indicate that you are in full auto mode.

The BAR is currently the only weapon that has slow fire mode. If you wish to go from full auto to semi auto read below.

10: Since the “USE” key is being used for so many different things now I decided to go in a different direction concerning the semi auto and full auto modes. You must first insert the code below into your config.cfg file. Once this is done you will be able to assign any key you prefer to switch between semi auto and full auto modes.

Copy and paste this code into your config.cfg file…

seta JHfr "vstr JHfr01"

seta JHfr01 "vstr JHsa1; set JHfr vstr JHfr02"

seta JHfr02 "vstr JHnorm1; set JHfr vstr JHfr01"

seta JHnorm1 "bind ALT +attack;-attack"

seta JHsa1 "bind ALT vstr JHsa2"

seta JHsa2 "+attack; -attack"

bind W "vstr JHfr"

NOTE: The “W” key is the default semi auto/full auto toggle key. You can replace the “W” with any key you prefer to use as your semi auto/full auto toggle key.

NOTE: For your convenience, you can click on the HCTM Default Settings option in the game options menu and all of the settings mentioned above will be added to your game automatically.

This mod is probably the biggest mods for Call Of Duty 2 to date. My expectatives were high, and I have utter respect for the amount of work and time put to archieve such a scale. While I know this is the first public release, it's far from perfect and I think criticsism is good for the future of this mod. This mod is lacking some key things, specially the inmersion factor, while the gameplay becomes more realistic than ever it fails at being complemented by the inmersion. It needs music, dialogue/cut-scenes…
