Special Thanks:
-------------------------------------------------------

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 2 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.

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 Hard Core Tactical Mod 2.

Wicopp A.K.A. WCP, for the inspiration to start making this mod in the first place.

My Lovely Wife Princess, who put up with me through all of this.

Very Special Thanks to:
-------------------------------------------------------

God. None of this could have been done without Him.

Slikk,

First of all, thanks so much for taking the time and effort to create this mod.
Nonetheless, I have a question: Why does VirusTotal detect a virus/malware in the CoD2SP.exe file from HCTM2_1.rar?

virustotal.com/gui/file/f4f6a882347833235a5eb100e43b6be25effc947dd4fc7355426c8945a55b077/detection

SecureAge APEX: Malicious
ClamAV: Win.Malware.Zpevdo-7101993-0
Cylance: Unsafe
eGambit: Unsafe.AI_Score_92%
Malwarebytes: MachineLearning/Anomalous.100%
SentinelOne (Static ML): Static AI - Suspicious PE

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Most likely a false positive, a common occurrence with mods and certain anti-virus programs.

As KKarlsoNN said, It's a false positive. There's nothing wrong with this file. Read through this thread Moddb.com If you notice, out of all the people who have downloaded HCTM2, no one has complained of a virus. So again... It's just a false positive.

Hi, I installed everything but can't figure out how to enable the mod. In game options there isn't a HCTM option, just the standard game options. Is anyway to turn the mod on outside the game?

I have no idea what you've done with your install, so the only thing I can tell you is to make sure that you have no other mods in your main folder and then make sure that you have...

zzzz - HCTM2_01.iwd
through
zzzz - HCTM2_10.iwd

in your main folder. Do that, and you should be able to play HCTM2.

In the main COD 2 file directory, make a folder called HCTM2 or something and put all the zzzz-HCTM2_01.iwd to zzzz-HCTM2_10.iwd
files into it, you should also have the other HCTM files like HCTM2 Extras, Readme, players, save ect put into this same folder.

I have come across a bug. I cannot complete a Russian mission. I cannot find the name. It is the one where at the end you have to wait for reinforcements (3 mins ish) while holding the fortress. You have to destroy the tank and put up the Russian flag when you are finished. I have complete all of the objectives but it wont let me finish.

Also are we able to play with your realism mod on the original campaign?
Love the mod! Any help would be great
