Celestial, thats very cool indeed.

Some Infantry models have a rolevariation called 'Engineer' which makes them go invisible. Don't know if Grenadiers have it though.
To hear that from you makes my day. Anyway, will this bring life back to the idea of the towed AT-guns? If you want me to do more research, can you PM me the modified Halftrack files from the sd.kfz. 251? So then i can experiment with removing the crew when the gun loads into the hafltrack.Originally Posted by Halftrack
That would be nice.
is it possible to deactivate the automatic capture system ?
i think you just have to remove the 'atc.scar' in your scar-directory. but not sure about it...
I hope that not too much were lost with the last careless 2.501 patch.
I have an idea. Why dont relic release a 2.502 patch in a month?
they will, 502 is in the works
edit: 2.502 is out now

He means the CoH patch, not a 2.502 compatible BotB(I think )Originally Posted by Shaker42
same here, even though it didn't have as much new content as Blitzkrieg, this mod really has a very unique playing style that actually made it my favourite one (though tied with Blitzkrieg)...I liked the snow
I haven't tried blitzkrieg, I've never had it recommended to me.
@ ebevan: I recommend Blitzkrieg Its like BotB but on a different front lol, with different army and unit set up of course
I tried it last night Bazz, I was having alot of fun. The weapons actually do damage too.
I've only tried out the Americans so far, I gotta try out the others next.
Blitzkrieg is a *very* good, but I think BotB will always be my number 1.
May you be touched by his noodle
Eastern Front will be my number 1.
But, back on topic, I found alot of BotB screenshots in my Photobucket and in screenshots folder. I almost cried I MISS THIS MOD!!!
And I realize I have never played as the Wehrmact in the mod.
Is there any hope that BOTB will make it to active status again? Like many previous posters, i miss it, too. If it is a matter of Relic fearing that it will take away from TOV sales, give the mod community the necessary SDK that ties it to TOV so that to play the mod TOV is required.
The thing that gives games like COH long life is the excellent work of the mod community but right now it feels like they are being crushed under the boot of self interest. If Relic wants sales security, simply make the SDK require that all new content require COH/OP/TOV.
i dont think that in the near future it will be made compatible, but you can always hope...
I'm new to CoH mods, just installled OF + CoH and upgraded to 2.301, just to play this mod, as I sounds interesting. Anyway, a problem - I don't see any capturable points on the map :o
I still can use minimap to capture points, but it seem kind of... strange Solution?
ATC - automatic territory capture: when your units are the majority in a sector you capture that poitn of a certain amount of time.
I miss BotB too, but for now am just thankful that Blitzkreig is running, and Normandy44 just made an AI test mod available. Both are extremely good, and challenging on 'hard' level of difficulty.
BTW, something else worth checking out while you're waiting for BotB... is in the maps forum, Henry666 and Mannerheim's "Joint Operations." They've put together about a dozen extremely challenging, very unique "missions." Things like: defend the town, rescue the officer, and see how long you can survive against wave after wave of attackers. You cannot adjust the difficulty levels on them. And they're all pretty tough, but winnable if you persevere. They're rather unique. And fun.
Blitzkrieg is fun, but it lacks the realism of BotB which is a kick in the balls for me and my friends who enjoy that slightly lengthier and tactical feel BotB battles have. We tried JointOps as well, which is fun but is quite limited until they get some different mission types to wave defense missions. In short, nothing makes up for the lack of Botb! I might have to use my limited Hd space just to get another install up purely for 2.3 Botb!
joint ops is great, but the biggest downside is that it sticks to vanilla coh which is unacceptable for me in terms of gameplay
Totally understandable. We're spoiled by the excellent mods here. Still, i enjoy playing a little bit of everything and am having fun working through the various Joint Ops missions.
They're not all defensive against hordes of attackers. There are a couple of rescue missions. Played one the other night called Liberation... where you have to rescue "Capt Miller" from behind enemy lines. Also they have one called Stronghold where you have to attack and take out an Axis town. They incorporate different side missions along the way, like taking out enemy artillery spotters and AA emplacements, and when you do, you receive more reinforcements.
Some of the missions are extremely difficult, which gives them a lot of replay value. I've tried Ramelle 3x so far... you have to defend the bridge in the town for 40 minutes. After about 30 minutes I get steam-rolled. Some people do beat it though. Which keeps making me want to try again.
Well there is an unofficial hotfix on the BotB forums. It gets BotB to work decently. Only the BotB weapon sounds are vanilla instead and the AI doesn't make vehicles (well at least for the Axis AI) but they will attack with all sorts of infantry. Most of the map names are missing but they still work. The occasional purple button and repair bunkers don't repair (though repair trucks do). Multiplayer works fine from what I tested. In my opinion, the issues are minor in comparision to the state of retail CoH.
repair bunkers is an official 2.5x bug, by the way.
... but BOTB had a feel to it that stock just doesn't. More than anything I think it was the capture mechanism. I miss that the most.
Yeah, I know its a 2.5XX bug. Just wanted to restate it. It was by no means a rip on BotB.
Nintendo, any chance you can send me the working hotfix? The download on the forums is broken(you can download it, but it'll have a broken file). I have a downloaded file that seems to work in singleplayer, but I'm assumign we need the uncorrupted version for multiplayer because we get version incompatibility currently.
I'll post it on this thread if I get permission so this forum has an uncorrupt version of the file. Now to find out who to ask?
Ok, here is the hotfix. I tried on the Botb forum but it seems like people are only able to download 1 kb. Lets try it here.
winrar tells me that botb/scar/upgradesystem.scar is corrupt.Originally Posted by Nintendochamp
It downloaded in under a second though
Yeah its a hotfix for 2.502...well sort of. There are still issues. I just can't figure out why its saying its corrupt. Just opened the winrar on my computer and no issue. Even copied over my botb files and still plays fine, multiplayer and all.
You extract all in your file BOTB.you remplace the old files by the new.
OH ok, that is what I was going to do but It was like 1 AM lol and I didn't feel like doing it.
Ok it's still not working, maybe I'm doing something wrong?
u need the botb.module file replaced first and foremost, the other files are included for the new capture script (so you can leave them if they are causing trouble)
Can the Rocket Carriage on the Panzerwerfer be animated with this?
Hey, I wanted to say you guys did an awesome job with this mod! I really cannot wait untill you release a v2.502 compatible version of the amazing mod.
@Muad'Dib: Yes I think it can, but I'm not sure if you can animate modelmixes. (since all the new vehicles in Battle of the Bulge are modelmixes)
i havnt been around in a while, but ive seen that teh eastern front mod has achived animation with the t-34's, have you guys got the animation down too, too add more tank version etc and a proper m1919a4 team for the americans!!?
i believe model mixes can be animated as the t-34 is also a modelmix
but currently the mod is like half-dead so there wont be any updates/new version for a long time
oooo no someone call the ambulance nooooooooooooooooo
do’t let it die please
I sent you a pm about a couple things, including a fix for the repair bunker bug

Just wanted to post a a big THANKS for the hotfix. Finally got around to downloading it and gave it a try. There is something about BotB that just looks sharper than vanilla CoH or even some of the other mods. Visually it's great.
Only thing that was frustrating me was that the repair stations and engineers won't fix anything. Logged on here to see if there was any way around it, and i see someone commented that trucks will repair. Will have to give it another try.
Again, great work!
