****The D-DAY JUNE 1944 add-on is FULLY ONLINE MULTIPLAYER COMPATIBLE, EVEN IF YOUR OPPONENT(s) DON'T HAVE THE HISTORICAL ADD-ON INSTALLED TO THEIR BLITZKRIEG MOD (Only you will see the changes).
***TEAM AFRIKA 43***
Justforfun1: Project Leader/Coder/Art/Realization - Wolf: Coder - Jagdpanther: Coder/AI/Scar - Sir_Leinad: Desert Maps - BurtonDrummerNY (Zombie Mod Creator) 3D models/Animation
AFRIKA 43 add-on is a total Blitzkrieg Mod conversion historically accurate and PvP's balanced on the 1940/43 desert war between the Axis Afrika Korps and the Commonwealth 8th Army, 2 factions in total, General Rommel Afrika Korps + General Montgomery 8th Army, including new models, new units, new skins, new weapons, new army trees, new reworked faces, new a.i., new surrender mode, new Generals abilities, new desert maps, and more! this Blitzkrieg mod North African add-on has been polished to be 100% historically accurate with more than 13th exclusive desert maps especially made for Afrika 43! its a pure beauty!
-1 command tech. tree per factions called "ARMY" (Afrika Korps/8th Army) instead of the regular 3 specialized doctrines trees.
Why only one tech. tree per army? because Afrika 43 will be playable online in 1 player versus 1 player, something Blitzkrieg mod can't do due to the way the specialized doctrines are set.
Blitzkrieg mod has a more cooperative play style who use team doctrines to support each others teams in online multi-players games, i made Afrika 43 to fill that 1 versus 1 PvP hole, Afrika 43 is of course also a fantastic multiplayers mod with the possibility to change your tactic during your game, this is one of the advantage to have a single multi purpose army instead of 3 highly cooperative doctrines, this to prevent being stuck with only one specialty and ending up with artillery when you'll need tanks, thats why Afrika 43 is great when played in 1v1, more equal chances for both opponents depending only of their skills and strategy instead of their doctrine choice.
In multi-players its also very fun to support your mate in you want to play more in cooperation prefering going infantry when your friend is picking tanks, the mod is perfectly balanced and firstly created for online players versus players games (PvP), having 1 tech. tree also doesn't mean that both armies will have the same tools, not at all, but you will have more tactics choices for sure, the Afrika Korps and the 8th Army trees have 16 possible upgrades like Blitzkrieg mod and will give you access to Infantry/Tanks/Artillery regrouping the best of the best units existing per Army.
Artillery units will be reached only at the end of armies command trees to prevent annoying arty spams.
Like during the North African campaign, the Afrika Korps will access to quick and very mobile units and the Commonwealth 8th army strong fortified defense with great counter attack capabilities, Good luck soldier, it ain't gonna be easy!
Play Afrika 43 mod on Afrika 43 desert maps! they have been created and 100% optimized for the mod!
AFRIKA 43 is online compatible ONLY IF PLAYERS HAVE THE HISTORICAL ADD-ON INSTALLED TO THEIR BLITZKRIEG MOD.
Donate if you like my work and want to support the mod with at this address: email@example.com , it took me 5 years of everyday work (still updating the add-on with new contents) to create this historical add-on for Blitzkrieg mod, it has been a very long trip and a massive amount of work to achieve that by myself, but thousand hours later its finally here for the pleasure of all, now its time to take care more of my family during my free time, so if you like to donate, you're more than welcome, many thanks to all of you.

This article is related to the original Company of Heroes and Blitzkrieg Mod game settings, it has nothing to do with Historical add-on, please BUY THE ORIGINAL GAME (Company of Heroes, NOT the LEGACY version who is not compatible) to prevent BUGS & CRASHES, this is a very cheap game and he's earned it! before playing COH, DON'T FORGET TO INCREASE YOUR PC VIRTUAL MEMORY ( Youtube.com ) & ALWAYS HAVE A GRAPHIC CARD DRIVER UPDATED, mods are in general more hungry with PC resources.
- Make sure you have the right Blitzkrieg mod version, if not Download it from the Steam store page here (free): Store.steampowered.com
INGAME MISSING ICONS (ABILITIES/UNITS) please READ:
- IMPORTANT: Do not set your Shaders quality on "ultra" but high, otherwise it will create visual errors, ultra shaders aren't supported by the COH1 engine.
- COH Graphic parameters to prevent graphic bugs:
- Why the model detail cursor need to be at 100% By Tiger1996 Youtu.be
- Low framerate, Lags with WINDOWS 10 updates: If you have problems since last windows update:
- Try to set the compatibility mode for the game on Windows 7. ( Check here )
-Right click on RelicCOH.exe and select Properties. Select the Compatibility tab and check the box that says "Disable fullscreen optimizations"
-Nvidia control panel and Turning vertical Sync off seems to fix the problem as well:
Rather than make this a global setting I have done it under Manage 3d settings > Program settings.
Added CoH then set Vertical Sync to off for just this game.
-NOTE- Anti Virus programs and Screen captures softwares are slowing down PC general performance and create lags/low framerates on some machines.
-IMPORTANT: From now, Windows 10 will automatically run his updates, you can check that in your update control panel here ---> Windows update panel and when its the case, ALL games and applications will be concerned by having less resources to play with, this will cause major lags and will slow down all your running programs, especially if you are playing online, you can't prevent those updates to run as there is no more options to stop Windows 10 auto updating.
-Try to have your Steam application and your Company of Heroes game in the same location on the same HDD/SSD.
- USE ONLY Microsoft DirectX 9.0, ( Microsoft.com ) DirectX 10 or later aren't supported by COH1 and create in game texture errors.
- When playing a skirmish versus ai disconnect you from the steam chat/friend panel (if your machine is slow)
- For people having trouble in online multiplayer "crash": go to documents/my games/company of heroes relaunch/playback. there should be a file called temp.rec. You need to create a text document with notepad or wordpad and call it temp.rec. Then , delete the actual playback document. This should work.
- Don't forget from time to time to empty you COH LogFiles: (PC/Documents/My Games/Company Of Heroes Relaunch/LogFiles) A lot of Gigas are taking from those files!
- Errors/Crashes/Game not launching properly because of missing files ---> time to verify your game integrity cache for BK Mod and COH: library right-click on BK mod or COH -> properties -> "Local files" tab -> "verify integrity of game files" button Youtube.com to prevent having missing textures, Warning, this will delete your customs units "native" speeches sounds by replacing them by the original vCOH ones.
