Sticky: How to install Modern Combat via Steam CoH

Postby Alio » Tue Sep 29, 2015 10:47 pm

Hey guys, the installer page is extremely outdated, and doesn't quite explain how to launch Modern Combat successfully. Simply clicking on the .bat file doesn't work in most cases. Here's the workaround.

1. Download Modern Combat's .rar package.

2. Extract the .rar to your Company of Heroes Relaunch folder.

3. Add a new non-Steam Game under Steams "Games" menu.

4. Select the RelicCOH.exe and then add this program. This will add it to your library.

5. Right click the RelicCOH.exe icon in your library. Go to properties.

6. Select "Change", we are going to change the target.

7. Select "All Files" on the lower right.

8. Go to the Modern Combat folder, and select the .bat file.

All done! Now you can launch Modern Combat!

For some reason, it says that it is not a recognized company of heroes and says to launch it through steam, with the same issue. any suggestions?

The Problem is that the .bat file uses Paths relative to the COH Folder to the Steam.exe.
Application Developpers :roll:
So if you installed COH in a different Steam library on another Dirve it wont find the Steam.exe.

current Bat:

cd ../../../../
Steam.exe -applaunch 228200 -dev -mod ModernCombat

So Either Change the Path behind cd in the bat to Your Steam Path, probably somehting like "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\"

modified Bat when Steam is installed on default location:

cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\
Steam.exe -applaunch 228200 -dev -mod ModernCombat

There might be a fancy way of integrateing a search for the Steam Path in CMD but I currently could only come up with Powershell Stuff and that brings a host of other problems.

Alternatively you can create a Shortcut of the steam.exe and add
-applaunch 228200 -dev -mod ModernCombat
behind the Target line in the Properties,

So that it looks something like this :
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 228200 -dev -mod ModernCombat
