    My game works perfectly -now I would like some new skirmish matches. Did you dind any help - if you did where did you get it - I am also new to this forum.

    To use -dev, simply right click on your game shortcut, select properties, and on the "target" line add -dev to the end of command line. Should look a bit like this:

    "(Your Install Drive)\Company of Heroes\RelicCOH.exe" -dev

    Then create a Scenarios folder in the game data directory, looks like this:

    (Your Install Drive)\Company of Heroes\WW2\Data\Scenarios

    and inside that Scenarios directory create an mp directory, will look like this:

    (Your Install Drive)\Company of Heroes\WW2\Data\Scenarios\MP

    Then you can place custom maps into folders in the MP directory, one folder for each map is a nice way to manage them. Say you had a map called BigFun, put it into a diectory called BigFun in the MP directory. It's pretty simple. (This is for .sgb files, .sga files need a different location and third party loader right now, and someone else would need to help you with that, as I use archive.exe to extract any .sga maps I want to play inot .sgb versions.)

    Good luck.

    P.S. - Check this post for ideas on trouble shooting the -dev install.

    Also, you can create a copy of your shortcut so that you have one with -dev and one without, that way you can play either easily, as you cannot conncet to non -dev games with the -dev in place, only other -dev games.

    Thanks, Chuckwagon, This was termendously helpful. I seem to be having trouble downloading maps in the .rar extension - What gives with these maps that are downloaded in Adobe.

    Okay couple of further questions on this please:

    1) For my CoH shortcut i have the Vsync turned off so my shortcut addess looks like:
    "C:\Program Files\THQ\Company of Heroes\RelicCOH.exe" -novsync

    A) So do i add the -dev on to the end of this ( .exe"-novsync -dev),
    B) Or would it just be best to add another Shortcut onto my desktop specifically for the -dev.

    2) Where to unzip or save the Mod files once i've downloaded them?

    Europe... in Ruins... []
    shifty_powers: I'm not sure about other modifications, however for my mod, Europe In Ruins, I've posted a brief 'How-To' here. I don't require '-dev' in the command line parameter like most mods though...

    If they require, -dev, simply add it...

    Won't work!!!

    Okay so i followed the steps to add a new Map to my COH OF and they didn't work.

    Created the folder, download a map from filefront (Gustav Line which is a .sga file) and unzipped it to the MP folder, added -dev to my shortcut on the desktop and opened COH.

    No new map in the skirmish option. Boooo.

    Read the readme file with the Map i downloaded, it claimed that .sga file don't require the -dev command. So i removed thatand still no joy!

    Any suggestions fellas, please!

    .sga files must go to a different folder, I recommend you download Mannerheims COH Launcher, makes stuff easier.

    Thanks for that, looks like it just about fool proof but that may well be cursing it.

    Think i'll try it out on some of your maps.
