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.

INSTALLING PATCHES MANUALLY
1. Download the patch .rar archive to your computer.
2. Right-click on it, 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”.
5. When prompted to overwrite existing files, click “Yes to All”.

NOTE: The old version of Company of Heroes (v2.602) now is obsolete.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) 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. Download it, and then install Modern Combat within the new “Company of Heroes Relaunch” folder it creates (located in your “Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common” directory).

NOTE: The old version of Company of Heroes (v2.602) now is obsolete.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) 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, you’ll need use the 1.016 installer and set the install path to your Company of Heroes root folder (for example, “C:\Program Files\THQ\Company of Heroes”). Then download patches 1.017 and 1.018 and extract them to the same  root folder, in consecutive order.

Before installing newer versions of the mod (1.016 onwards), make sure you first delete any ‘ModernCombat’ folder and .module files within your CoH root directory!

Be aware that online play is not supported.

To create a Desktop shortcut:

Version 2.700 (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.
