ops...sorry,then I'll wait for instructions.
Yes, that is my responability. Although the main problem with the US M2 105mm Howitzer is that it's "arms" cannot close, like the 50mm Pak 38 and the M1 57mm.- towable guns ( AT and Arty )

Okay, once again:
sorry for this long wait, I hope you guys have a little more patience, but I am quite occupied with RL workloads...
The main problem of bringing BotB back to life is the AI.
The damn thing doesnt build any vehicle buildings...
but sweeten will hopefully help me out, as I am a total AI noob.
So what can you guys expect:
1. A release of the Mod for 2.6 in the "as is" Beta state.
Small things have been fixed and added, some of them glitchy, but playable... as an attempt to bring the mod back to life.
- 88mm Flaks will be in emplacements
- Flak 38 Quad buildable for 7th Army tree
- Bofors 40mm buildable for US Infantry tree
- towable guns ( AT and Arty )
- Visible units in Halftracks, able to fight out of the compartment
- some changes to doctrine trees
This version will hopefully released soon.
2. If we regain a player base, we are going to adress all that stuff and make it work properly,
develop the mod further as well as adding proper new vehicle models and animations.
As always no ETA, sorry... BUT a clear "YES, we will!"
Sounds cool halftrack. I really loved your mod (though there were some patches which spoiled it a bit ), but I am really looking forward to your 2.6 release .
Welcome back, Halftrack. Looking forward to answer some of your 'theoretical' questions .
At last the mod and the sturmtiger are coming back
best news for the day
Nice to have you back , Nice to see some snow action again
Awesomeness! i will defiantly check play this when the 2.6 version comes out. I really like the game play created with this style :P
I'll support. I always liked this mod.
Great to see your able to devote some more time back to this Halftrack! Don't worry about the players, we never left, we just hibernated till there was some more news. I'll bet as soon as you make an official v2.6 release everyone will be coming out of the woodwork.
It's damn good that the AI issue that's been holding back a fix seems a simple job, now don't let the Kampfgruppe down!
Agreed. Best mod. Tried both Blitz and N44, and neither was as cool as this one.
EDIT: Well I'm just stating my opinion. I just find the skins, weapons balance/realism, ATC system, and maps to be amazingly awesome.

Hey, that's not niceTried both Blitz and N44, and neither was as cool as this one.
I am also glad to see HT back to BotB. I'll try and get his AI up and running ASAP.
Great Sweeten! I'd buy you and Halftrack bottles of Champaign for this, but the shipping would kill me!
LOL - no that's OK. I was just kidding. As I told HT, he was one of my mentors and I'm happy to get this great mod back on track. In the "realism mod" department, I consider N44, BotB, and Blitz to be a family of mods all working together. We all route for each other and help each other. As HT said to me yesterday in a conversation, you can never have too many good mods! And BotB is certainly one of th best.EDIT: Well I'm just stating my opinion.

@ Lethal - I'm more of a beer and whiskey kinda guy
Also, I'll let HT break any important news or updates, but let's just say I made signifigant early progress with the AI
if the AI is anywhere near what you have in n44, then it is certainly brutal.
Beware... of the clownpocalypse
Hey HT - any chance you can clear a couple of spots in you PM box so I can PM ya
Good News. Sweeten did it.
So I lle be busy fixing some minor bugs then you guys can expect a release in the very near future.
@Lethal: Oh, I would take the champagne, if sweeten doesnt want to ;D
The return of BotB for 2.6?
That would be great!Best wishes from here for this Project!
Happy to hear BotB is coming back.
I downloaded this mod just before i bought coh... but it was patched to 2.6 so i was like (+^+). So i played blitz and i love it... i have no idea what the gameplay of Botb is like, is it like BLitz gameplay-realism and one shot kills? hope so
NICE TO SEE THIS MOD SPRING BACK TO LIFE
Absence of proof doesn't mean proof of absence.
actually it uses lots of Blitzkriegs tank weapon stats.
As Blitzkrieg, BotBs main goal is realism, which you hopefully will see.
But BotB focuses ONLY on the events in the Ardennes region, between Dec16th 1944 and January 25th 1945.
Halftrack, with the Red Army entering the CoH modding society, you can perhaps even expand this mod with Unternehmen Sonnenwende and/or Unternehmen Frühlingserwachen.
Every mod that works for 2.301 does not work for 2.6, but the reverse is true? (That is, do mods that are compatible with 2.6 also compatible with 2.301?)
EDIT: Also, any vehicle-mounted MG42 on the mod right now has ridiculously low accuracy, hardly killing anything, even on stationary. This is especially harmful IMO, because most MG42 can only be added to a vehicle at the precious cost of 75 munitions, a price way too high for what they do right now.

Dr.Evil: Well thats a quite different theatre of Operations..
I think EF will cover some winter scenarious, though.
Well great to know it has very similar gameplay as Blitz im going to get this for sure
any news on when the release will be?
@vonDietz: IMO BotB is more balanced, but in damages and penetration it is quite the same.
so any news on the release date or ETA?
"Jeg har ingenting, men jeg har alt når jeg har deg"
It was my all time favourite mod. Really anxious to be given the chance of playing in 2.6.
An E.t.a would be a must for serious fans
Ill tell you a secret, i have played Botb already on 2.600 only thing you need to do is update the Module file.. i like looking into module. files they look so complicated anyway its not a garnatee that everything will work. but its a start
When the rich wage war, it's the poor who die.
I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
Thats no secret, baby.
We provided a hotfix long time ago, but it HAS bugs,
and the AI wont build tanks.
I am working (RL) a lot at the moment, although the 2.6 patch for BotB is almost done,
it will have to wait about two weeks.
Yes, updating the modules is easy, but as Halftrack said, the racebps are old, and need to be updated. Same goes for .scar files and more.
same as i said anywayand i like to say the word secretits not a garnatee that everything will work
Yes unfortunately it goes further than that and its all the extra numbered extensions relic has added to everything, they all need to be transfered over from the new ones as some of these affect things down the track and cause serious issues/crashes. And for those who dont know when i say numbered I'm referring to ones that modstudio doesnt know, and if some of these need tweaking to match other parts and you dont know exactly what there for, it makes for alot of trial and errors in many areas if there serious issues with big older mods. I know for a fact that this is a major issue in the racebps having already revived/updated some mods, but as stated the racebps is only the tip of the iceberg in many mods, as many have there own scripts also to function along with the mod
I have CofH OF version 2.601.0 I downloaded the original B of B but it wont work. Do I need something else or will it not work with my version.
If you read the posts above...
A new version for patch 2.601 is in development.

Kudos to those who created the BoB mod and for updating it to 2.061
I've seen a few screen shots and it looks GREAT
And it's a Campaign I have read many books on.
I have changed some things in data esspecially ai and it works for me (ai build jeeps halftracks stugs shermans etc but it have some bugs ai is very easy to beat). Probably new release will be great I'm sure about that
Can't wait halftrack!!
Regards (Rolo1977 from work )
Only thing I would advice is be even more patient. I'm sure the ETA is soon.
Gentlemen, let me remind you not to ask for updates for mods. It merely clutters the thread. The mod team will definitely let you know when they have new things to share.
it's not dead but in a very slow modding process because some(or all) the team members are working on Eastern Front Mod
The Mod is NOT dead at all, but YES , on A VERY slow modding process.
I wanted to release it today, as we "celebrate" the 55th Birthday of the offense, but I didnt achieve this goal.
I have been working a LOT in the last months, and as I spend my whole day at the comp, sometimes till late in the night,
I have neither the time nor the motivation to spend the rest of the night at the comp again.
So, as I am the only one working at the code and organizing the mod its a slow progress.
Additionally, I find things to fix everytime I work at it...
So, hopefully it will be released before Christmas. Hopefully...
with a tutorial i can help. i don't know the bases but i can work and i have much free time to use...
