CheatCommands Mod ULEThis version is outdated. Please see the news section for the latest version.

For those of who don't know what this mod is all about, here's a short intro:
CheatCommands Mod is an utility mod for CoH2. In can be used for, but not limited to:
Singleplayer Cheating, Testing units, Balancing, Debugging maps, Setting up scenes for screenshots/videos and so on. Your imagination is the limit. Even though this is the super ultra light edition. Even lighter than the Light Edition.

Most of you probably know that December 10th update broke CheatCommands Mod. While this update effectively disabled mods, Relic re-introduced -dev mode and thus Scar code can be executed via console. This version of CheatCommands Mod has less features but at least the key features are available at the moment:

How to install and use?

1. Extract the downloaded archive to your CoH2 installation folder, e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes 2

2. Make sure you now have a folder called "ccm" in your CoH2 installation folder

3. Launch CoH2 with -dev mode

3.1 Goto your steam games collection, right click CoH2 and select Properties.
3.2 Under the General tab click the Set launch options... button.
3.3 Add "-dev" without quotation marks (Make sure to leave space between additional tags such as "-nomovies", e.g. "-dev -nomovies") and click OK.
3.4 Close the game's Properties window and launch CoH2.

4. Start a match, Open Game console by pressing Control + Shift + ~ (tidle)
In a keyboard which contains Scandinavian letters such as ö, ä, å, please use ö instead of ~ (tidle), e.g. Control + Shift + Ö

5. Paste in this text and press enter:

dofile("ccm/ccm.scar")


Close the console by pressing the same hotkey again. You are now good to go!
For example, press Control + 1 to spawn pioneer / combat engineer squad and Control + Delete to remove it (if selected)

Great to see the mod back up and running! I think they disabled the LUA exploit in the first place because using the cheatmod could still gain you XP in Custom Games.

Hmm. I can't seem to get the game console to open up in game. I did enter "-dev" in the set launch options but it still won't show up. I tried -nomovies and that worked though. Any thoughts?

So basically hotkey Control + Shift + ~ (tidle) does not work for you?

Strangly, no. When I first opened up the launch options, it was empty until I typed in -dev. Is that normal? It now reads -dev -nomovies

I just tried that and my keyboard stopped working, LOL. I'm playing on my macbook pro with windows installed via bootcamp. I'm at work and the logitech keyboard is at home; so I just tried what was in the link and now my laptop keyboard doesn't work with the windows anymore.

Oh well, I'm figure that out and keep trying. Thanks for all your hard work put into this!

I've found that when toggling instant production on then off makes production time VERY slow.

Running CoH2 in -dev mode using a shortcut:

-Right click on RelicCoH2.exe and select Send to -> Desktop (create shortcut)
-Default path to CoH2 install folder in Windows 7 is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes 2\
-RelicCoH2.exe is located in this folder.

2. Right click on your newly created shortcut. Select Properties.
3. Add [-dev] without square brackets after the last quotation mark in Field called "Target" under "Shortcut" Tab. Notice the space before last quotation mark and -dev.
Example:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes 2\RelicCoH2.exe" -dev

I'm sorry to be such a pain. I followed all the step except that my game isn't through steam. I created the shortcut in my desktop, added the -dev in properties, and download the mod and extracted into my COH2 folder of course. Then I go into the game and opened the Game console and pasted [ dofile("ccm/ccm.scar") ] and nothing happens. I tried CTRL+SHIFT+F1 but nothing.
