Normandy '44: European Theater combines a higher level of realism with a more elaborate doctrine system, which incorporates almost 50 different military units that took part in the period of Jun-Sept 1944. This spectrum ranges from divisions of free Polish and French units serving under the main allied armies to volunteers from the Eastern Front that served in the German Wehrmacht. This is only a small portion of the doctrine variety however, as we feature numerous well known units of all factions as well. The mod also features numerous new abilities and custom made units each with a completely revamped size and structure. Between custom made units and structures with historically correct skins, Normandy '44 offers over 150 NEW UNITS, making for an almost endless variety of different scenarios and unit actions. Combined these factors provide for an experience unlike any other mod for CoH!

Post news Report RSS First Alpha Build: September 2nd, 2013

Letting you know about the release date! September 2nd-3rd depending on the timing, get yourself ready. :)

Posted by on

Hello everyone, long time no see.

I just wanted to let everyone know that although I am ready to release the first Alpha build now, you won't be able to get your hands on it until the 2nd of September, or early on the 3rd. It'll take a good amount of time for me to compress everything, plus I then need to upload it (Most likely in two separate parts) onto this website. After that I then need to wait for approval.

I am out of province tomorrow (September 1st) and will not be able to upload it because of that. However, you will be getting your first Alpha build at the very latest, on the 3rd of September!

Please bare in mind that there are still tons of unfinished/untouched and work in progress content. I have fixed the yellow "Missing Lua" boxes where I saw them, and THE SOVIETS WORK.

Please bare in mind that many parts of the Soviet models (Hats/weaponry in some cases, helmets etc.) WILL NOT SHOW UP UNLESS YOUR SHADER IS SET TO "ULTRA".

I plan on updating all of the soviet content (As well as many other old models, etc.) and fixing many other things for the second Alpha build, but until then I need you to bare with me and leave your shaders down on High.

I will have a paypal account setup by the time the first alpha is released, if you happen to feel compelled to donate any amount of currency (Spare change on your account, a gift, whatever. It's your money!) It will be there for that purpose, and I will certainly let others know of your generous actions!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I will be enjoying Depeche Mode live tomorrow evening and the day after that uploading everything for all of you very patient and loyal followers! Hope this doesn't impact your start of semesters... ;)

Excellent! :D I appreciate the effort that's going into this.

As a side note, has anyone noticed that just about every popular mod for CoH and MoW just happened to release this summer...?

The wait is torture, pure, unrefined torture. Anyway, take your time with whatever you want :) I'll just have to endure the wait to see the next update for this mod.

Also, do you mean that if we have our shaders on ultra, some details won't show? I got confused by the sentence in capital bold letters because it says unless the settings are on ultra they won't show. Maybe I'm just confused like always :P

Anyway, have fun at the concert!

'WILL NOT SHOW UP UNLESS YOUR SHADER IS SET TO "ULTRA".' - meaning 'will not show up if your shader is not set to ultra' -or- 'will show up if your shader is set to ultra'

the first conditional. :)

Yes, but later in the text it mentions

"...but until then I need you to bare with me and leave your shaders down on High."

Which is part of what confused me.

To clarify if you set your Shader to Ultra you will get these issues. Everything works fine on any other setting.

Exactly. Makes sense really, lower settings is overall easier to handle I guess :)
