Download the Modern Combat modification from this page!

NOTE: To unlock Modern Combat factions, you must own the following:
Company of Heroes  (unlocks the US Marine Corps).
Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts  (unlocks the US Army and PLA Ground Force).
- Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor  (unlocks all factions).

UPDATE: It’s come to our attention that attempting to play a Skirmish game without owning either the Opposing Fronts or Tales of Valor expansions will result in an ‘instant-win’. To our knowledge, this only applies to players using the new Steam version of CoH.

If anybody can provide any more information on this then please make a post on our forums.

 

Download Full Version 1.019

 


 

INSTALLATION


1.
Download the archive file to your computer. Install WinRAR if you don’t have it (http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm).

- IMPORTANT-
If you have a previous version of Modern Combat already installed, you’ll need to do the following before proceeding:

1a. Open “Modern Combat v1.019.rar” (the archive you just downloaded).

1b. Cut or copy “Modern Combat Uninstaller.bat”.

1c. Browse to your “Company of Heroes Relaunch” folder (for example: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch”.

1d. Paste “Modern Combat Uninstaller.bat” inside. It’s vital that you put this file in the right place, otherwise it won’t work!

1e. Run “Modern Combat Uninstaller.bat”. This will uninstall any existing Modern Combat files and folders from your system. Please be patient; this may take a few minutes!

The following instructions assume that you’ve successfully uninstalled any previous versions of the mod. If you haven’t, and you continue regardless, then you may experience issues in-game and won’t be compatible with other players online!

2. Right-click on “Modern Combat v1.019.rar” and select “Extract files”.

3. Enter your “Company of Heroes Relaunch” folder as the extraction destination directory (for example, “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch”).

4. Click “OK”.


 

LAUNCHING THE MOD


1.
Go to your “ModernCombat” folder (located within your Company of Heroes root folder; for example, “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch”).

2. Click on either of the two .bat files packaged with the mod (“Modern Combat Launcher. bat” or “Modern Combat Launcher Cheat Mode. bat”).

For additional instructions on creating a desktop shortcut, see the subsection below.

 

NOTE: The old version of Company of Heroes (v2.602) now is obsolete. The Quazal servers that Relic had been using have been shut down. Thus we, the Modern Combat Team, have transferred our mod to the new version of Company of Heroes (v2.700.2.47) utilising the Steamworks servers. To learn more about the change please read Relic’s community post here.

Instructions for transferring your game to the Steamworks servers:

1. Download and install Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/).
2. Launch Steam (create a Steam account if you don’t already have one).
3. Sign into your Steam account.
4. Select “Activate a Product On Steam” from the “Games” menu.
5. Enter your Company of Heroes CD-Key (f you don’t have your original Company of Heroes CD-Key, you can use our Key Retrieval Tool located here: https://cohtool.sega.co.uk/).
6. Repeat for the Opposing Fronts and/or Tales of Valor expansion packs.

Once you’ve completed the above steps you’ll see “Company of Heroes (New Steam Version)” appear in your Steam Library. Install it, and then follow the Modern Combat installation instructions above.

NOTE: The old version of Company of Heroes (v2.602) now is obsolete. The Quazal servers that Relic had been using have been shut down. Thus we, the Modern Combat Team, have transferred our mod to the new version of Company of Heroes (v2.700.2.47) utilising the Steamworks servers. To learn more about the change please read Relic’s community post here.

If you want to install the most recent version of the mod, but only have access to the old 2.602 version of CoH, follow the installation instructions above but be aware that your CoH directory will be different to those given in the examples. An example of a typical v2.602 installation directory would be something like this instead: “C:\Program Files\THQ\Company of Heroes”.

Also be aware that online play is no longer officially supported.

To create a Desktop shortcut:

Version 2.700.2.47 (Steam):

1. Browse to your ‘Company of Heroes Relaunch’ root folder (for example, “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch”).
2. Right-click on “Modern Combat Launcher. bat” (or the Cheat Mode variant if you want) and select “Copy”.
3. On your desktop, right-click and select “Paste shortcut”.

Version 2.602 (non-Steam):

1. Browse to your ‘Company of Heroes’ root folder (for example, “C:\Program Files\THQ\Company of Heroes”).
2. Right-click on “RelicCOH.exe” and select “Copy”.
3. On your desktop, right-click and select “Paste shortcut”.
4. Right-click on the shortcut and add the suffix ” -dev -mod ModernCombat” (preceded  by a space) to the target line. For example: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch\RelicCOH.exe” -dev -mod ModernCombat”.

You now have a fully-functional shortcut. You can rename it if you want, or set it up with the custom Modern Combat icon provided to you:
“Company of Heroes Relaunch\ModernCombat\coh-mc_shortcut_icon.ico”

To enable Cheat Mode, launch the mod via the “Modern Combat Launcher Cheat Mode. bat” file provided to you. Cheat mode is intended for new players who want to familiarise themselves with the mod, or as a sandbox for playtesting and experimentation.

NOTE:  Launching Modern Combat with Cheat Mode enabled will disable all online multiplayer functionality. Cheat Mode functionality is disabled during  the singleplayer campaign mission.
