M E D I A _ U P D A T E :

De Lisle new anims. Note the animated bullets and firing pin. De Lisle is a fast-shooting suppresed bolt-action carbine. It's pretty effective even at close range.

Mosin Nagant new anims, including bayonet. Note the animated bullets during rechamber and reload. Actual stripper clip was added for reload. For those who have good eyes - the firing pin is animated as well.

All bolt-action snipers have new anims and one small change - the rechamber motion is transfered into aiming through scope which makes it more realistic but also harder to aim. Also the bullets are animated during rechamber and reload.

Luger new anims. Note animated bullets in magazine during reload.

This is a very good mod, thanks very much for sharing your excellent work. This is a huge improvement over the vanilla game. However, I do have a few suggestions to make it even better... Reduce the frequency of Germans carrying machine guns like mg42 etc, reduce ai use of grenades as it seems very excessive, separate new missions from main campaign to maintain emersion/realism. With these changes, the mod would be perfect. Great work!

Any way to install call of duty two on a newer operating system? I tried installing it on my windows 8.1 and it fought back every step of the way, really eager to play this modification.

You should try checking for a compatibility patch for CoD2 somewhere on the Web.

Hi! Thank you for the information, now I can see the mmod menu and so. But now I have a different problem I think. That's the message that appears now: "recursive error after: Hunk_AllocAlign failed on 252656 bytes (total 200 MB, low 1 MB, high 198 MB)
Great mod! I'm following it's development by a while, you're a great modder! Cheers

I did everything as the readme said about installation (not that it would have been a hard one) and still I get an error at Multiplayer when I try to start a map just to try it out with an error: recursive error after: Hunk_AllocAlign failed on 108160 bytes (total 160 MB, low 0 MB, high 159 MB). My laptop can run Skyrim with 30+ mods at full graphics without any lag so the preferences shouldn't be a problem. And I got another error in the menu: iwd sum/name mismatch. Thank you for the help!

do you have any mods or MP maps besides b2f?
cod2 has a limit for MP game of how many mods you can have.

Nope, I don't have any mods, but as I can see others get the same error as well.

ok so if you dont have anything in your game except b2f then you must have renamed the IWD files of b2f, right?

Anyone know anything about the IWD mismatch errors I get when loading some MP maps? Would love a fix for that. Otherwise, absolutely awesome mod, I'm enjoying this game all over again on a whole new level. Thank you!

mismatch error means you have lot of scripted custom IWDs in your active game folders.
if you have only b2f mod active it should run fine. but if you have lots of custom maps in there, then this error happens. this is hardcoded into multiplayer exe file of cod2. nothing can be done to correct it (except packing the maps into one IWD or shortening the names of custom IWDs).

Thanks for the response, to be honest I totally missed it as it does not seem I had any sort of notification. I have only got the B2F mod installed so am not sure why it still has this problem, but thanks for your help.

depends on the soundmod. if it has only sounds then - yes. if it has also sound scripts then most likely - no.

This mod is fantastic and i would thank all Staff that developed this awesome and impressive work on COD 2.
Can i suggest this in future? Can you think to all Staff about an Italy Campaign or search some infos on Sniper Elite 4: Italia about scenery?
Thanks a lot. I would that Back2Fronts will expand also in Italy.
