"Torch Bearer" AKA Leader of European Theater: 1944 Modification (NEW THREAD)
I See many people getting blue boxes of missing rgm, guys install the mod correctly with ALL 4 Parts (install it one after another to be sure) and apply the multiplayer patch ONLY if you are going to play multiplayer
@ Flash - yes and yes

Hey i downloaded all the parts, followed instructions, got the shorcut, started the game, and i got a the normal version of OF... Is there suppose to be a specific version of OF to play or Vanilla is good?
@ Netclash - vanilla is fine. I would have say there is a problem with install, since we have around 1000 downloads and this is the first I've heard of this issue with this version.
It could be with the files themselves or in the shortcut (more likely the files).
In your CoH folder (located at program files/thq/company of heroes ) should be 5 .module files that start with EuropeanTheater1944. There should also be 1 folder called EuropeanTheater1944. In that folder should be a couple of miscellaneous files, and 3 folders - locale, data, archives.
Yea, i had all 5 modules and the folder, merged with all other 3 parts. just that when i start with the shortcut nothing really changes, its just plain old OF. This also happened to me while beta testing the previous version.
I know you've been patient Net, and i will certainly try and help.
I'm assuming you are making a new shortcut, correct?
If not you do this by :
6) Right click on your CoH Shortcut, and choose "create shortcut"
7) Right click on the new copy of the shortcut and select "properties" - set the target line to read as the following :
8) Rename the new shortcut whatever you'd likeCode:"C:\Program Files\THQ\Company of Heroes\RelicCOH.exe" -dev -mod EuropeanTheater1944
9) Click on "Change Icon" inside properties, and "browse" to find the icon included in the mod folder - choose it
@sweeten:the link I sent you is the last and updated version,don't get confused mate,it's the one that should be used in N44

I've been playing this mod avidly past couple of days. Regarding Netclashs problems;
I started off with unpatched Vanilla OF (I reinstalled several times to verify this), this mod will not work until OF has been updated to at least 2.5 (preferably 2.6). I tried it with every version up until that update, you start it up and you get Vanilla CoH. (Which is a bit annoying, it's about 2 Gb of updates from Vanilla to 2.6).
Other than this, I must say an excellent mod truly a great improvement on Vanilla. I try and post about bugs as I find them.
Also, does the amount of RAM affect the performance of the mod (I have my settings turned down until I'm using about a 1/3 of my memory on the options page but it still crashes at some point in the endgame).
I have 2 Gb RAM, a GTX 260, Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q6700 and am running XP SP3.
I'll have to get around to getting another 2GBs.
Edit: Other Bugs:
Missing Lua: http://www.vulomedia.com/images/6399...000_1small.jpg
This happens occasionally, after producing a unit. There seems to be no set trigger.
Incorrect order in commander tree: http://www.vulomedia.com/images/4348...1_1smaller.jpg
Tank Destroyers appears to be able to be unlocked before the preceding tech has been. I'm not sure if this is by design though.

Someone may have reported this one already, but building the Flak 88 emplacement using the 16LW Field Division engineers produces a yellow box where the 88 should be.
@Lack_26: Thanks alot for testing this out, unfortunately, i always get errors when trying to install patches soo yea... I think my regestry is a bit messed up... So sad i could not play this awesome mod...
Hi sweeten 2213
Greetings constantly game fly take off the error only writes will start to play and failure an error help to play in this mod good mod Normandy 44: European Theater
@Netclash:hi mate,I had similar problems when trying to patch my CoH,you need to uninstall the game and erase all folders of CoH,eveything of CoH must be deleted,then install it again and start patching,it worked for me and now I have version 2.600 wich is the latest one.
Of course you can save your skins and stuff,you only need to erase all CoH folders,make sure you deleted eveything,first uninstall,then,erase all CoH folders and then reinstall,hope it helped
EDIT:@sweeten: I found a british bug,playing with the Canadian Commander Tree choosen I found why the game crashes,a LUA is causing this problem, 1st Polish Rifle Squad is missing a LUA and causing crash,I was able to play a little longer before crash and didn't found other bugs.

Hi, i tried playing this mod with my friend (WE PLAYER VS COMPUTER) we have installed correctly and can play SP, but everytime we start a game together against CPU game crash.
WE replaced the 2 flies for MP mode.
Is this a SP only mod?
NeoJD@ No there is Multiplayer, but you need to download the Multiplayer Zip from the first page, and make sure to move or backup your ET Folder for SP.
I played 5 minutes at N44 and i have always blue box.
well we did used the multiplayer zip and replaced those files.
I can open a game and host, my friend comes in, we set up the CPU enemy, then i start. The map loads... The he get kicked out and my games says FATAL error, game stopped or something.
Anyone else tryed playing a coop game?
I did excactly the same mistake mate, you should delete the whole ET1944 folder and reinstall the mod, only this time when the 4 four parts are installed before doing anything open the mod folder and delete the scar floder inside data folder and THEN replace.
Hope this will help, unfortunatelly I am not at my pc so dont remember excactly the name of each folder. Anyway gl and have fun in with your friend, multiplayer really pwns
Thanks have helped game on the permission of the display 1200*900 works and has adjusted a video map on productivity it is a pity on the high permission of the display 22 "does not work
Just to keep everyone updated (including the team), though I've been quiet here lately it's not for lack of N44 work.
I've added 30 or so new player abilities, most are call ins of existing vehicles, some new models, some new divisions not currently included, and some new abilities. Each Command tree will now have 4 rows in each column instead of 3. All of which had to be entered in to the AI system and tested which takes a great deal of time.
I also added some new skins and fixed some bugs.
I'll be finishing up the new player abilities over the next couple of days, and then probably start seeing how to best address and get out performance improvements.
I've totally been concentrating on RL things instead of the guide, I'll be resuming work tonight. Sorry about the slow progress everyone, its tedious work.
Sounds good Sweeten, keep up the good work.
I've downloaded and installed your mod onto my copy of Company of Heroes. I am using the Company of Heroes Anthology version of the game.
I can launch the game without a problem but when I try to start a skirmish I get the following error message (I've had to attach it as this forum doesn't like URLs).
Where should this TEMP folder be?
I am running Windows XP SP3.
Hey guys, thanks for all your hard work, it really shows Just had a CTD. I have attached the log.
Also, would someone mind posting a replay of a game where they win? The AI is supreme! Even on Normal difficulty, they just wipe everything out with artillery and planes! So, help technically and help tactically, if you can.
Looks like the bug is the old graphics monster biting again in both cases (the TEMP folder thing comes up when the error logs are too big which is usually the case when it crashes).
I actually did some research last night (as I was ordering a new graphics card ). From what I understand, when a graphics card's memory gets overloaded, it basicall yjust shuts down - hence the crash. I was describing N44's problems to a tech, and he agreed that the mod is drawing on a lot of video memory - hence the problems.
So, for now, the only solution is lowering graphics settings. I have already improved performance since the closed beta, and will continue to try and improve it as time goes on.
As far as help, Twitchy is going to work on some guides (including possibly video guides) for the mod.
It will take a little time, but we're certainly all working on various aspects of the mod ATM.
Glad you like the AI!
I just have to drop in here to say as being one of the players who has been here since the way back beginnings of this mod, to the newcomers.
EuropeanTheatre/Normandy '44 has come an awefully long way since the beginning, the crashes have definatly come a long way, I feel they're testment to just how big the scope of this mod is in compared to Vanilla.. I have stopped playing other games completely since N44v3, It has the columination of what I have wanted in a WWII game since I was a child. (dreaming of a game with my little army men) Having all the historical aspects of the war, and being able to "toy" around with history never loses it's flavor for me, I never feel bad having to give the mod it's "respects" and turn down the graphics to play the mod in it's glory.. We as a team and certainly with Sweet as the leader are always striving to improve the mod..Hell, look how far it's come just in this few months since conception! Its always an honor and a pleasure to be a part of this mod..
By the way, Sweeten, what Graphics card did you end up getting? Im so freekin jealous of you! (and Rev09 who obviously from the video, has one damn good card!) Oh well, maybe someday...(hint, hint, don't go recycle your ol card, I will definatly take any hand-me-downs/ donations.

@ Citizensoldier. I have to say that u said it well this mod is focking awesome, Its really got everything and so so much more, so many ways to play it allways different. I must say that i am really impressed with the work sweeten and the rest of the team has done. As one of many people who play and love this awesome mod, Thank you guys for the all the hard work and constant support you give. Cheers!!!
@ CS - first off, thanks. Second, I got the GeForce GTS 250 overclocked with 1GB of RAM. PM me.
@ von - thanks and your welcome.
And trust me guys - I'm not "satisfied" with the graphics crashes. I'm going to do the best I can to improve performance. But, I have to say, it seems all of the crashes are solely due to that and there are very few real "bugs" in the game. Not too bad considering the pure size of the mod
Wow Sweeten you've been busy. Thanks again for all your hard work.
Is it possible to tell us how much memory on a graphics card this mod eats up at the lowest > highest settings at all?
I feel like donating to you for you hard work :salute
The best guess I can give isn't so much an amount as much as a gauge.
When you go to graphics settings, it has that little bar on the bottom right that has memory usage. It takes your graphics card and CPU into consideration.
If that is over half, you will more than likely crash quickly. By best guess is to try and get it to about 1/3. With 1/3 of it filled, i am able to play with the graphics settings I described in post # 1 at medium texture detail on a 2v2 with any faction w/o issues. Once you add more players, it gets a little bit more dicey though I have been able to play 4v4's with those settings.
So i would say keep it at 1/3 and lower texture detail to low (if it isn't already depending on your graphics card) if you want to play 3v3 or 4v4
Played a 3v3 with the Model settings nice and high, but with the terrain low instead of normal, and I turned my sound quality to low because I have music on while I played. I didn't get a crash, And I barely got any lag. The match was more then playable.
If your finding it hard to play, turn your sound quality down aswell. It does help. Also turn off ANY other program your not using. I only had one Anti Virus program on, My Internet Connection, Itunes and the Game itself, I made sure Relic Downloader was turned off also.
@GenZhukov - I won the match just for you. I chose the 2nd Panzer and wiped the floor with the Americans. 3v3 on Montherme with all AI set to normal. Hope you can learn from that as I cannot make any tutorials until such time as I finish this Guide.
Speaking of which, Thats what Im currently off to do.
I Finally got internet quota to download the mod >< !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ROARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR (killer nerd mod ) XD
citizensoldier : I too agree on what you said about the scale of the mod and its related "burdens" , but im sure we can sought it out as much as we can XD

hey, just gotta say, this new version of the mod is loads more stable! its not crashed on me yet.....
and sweeten... did you see my comment about toning down crew repairs in the old thread? was just wondering if you had an opinion on that?
Yeah it was be pointed out by me and others sometime ago already , his sure aware of it . Perhaps some changes would be done soon XD

I Re-downloaded part 3 and I do not have any more a error CRC and blues cubes! The best is… N44!
Hey Twitchy! Thankyou very much for taking the time to get that replay for me, it was enlightening I doubt if I will suddenly get the hang of it, but at least I understand the direction. That and artillery is king! Thanks again.
@ GenZhukov - Until I finish the Guide I can't make any tutorials, Try your best with one Doctrine that you like, learn what its strengths and weaknesses are and stick with it.
Once I've got the Guide done I'll be posting Video Tutorials for each Doctrine.
Also an update on the guide, I'm close to finishing the 2nd Panzer Div. Doctrine. Note that Im skipping the Doctrine abilities until I've finished all of them, I've also found a way to do the Doctrines ALOT faster.
@ Sweeten - No problem. I dunno if you mean reply as in PM or as in Replay. But I'll leave this on just in case. xD I saw his post and just decided to play a game. I'll be done with the 2nd PzD by tomorrow, then Im onto the 12th SS
after re downloading zip 3 for the third time i finally got it working >< oh my poor internet quota XD
OK - I finally got all the abilities done, and I'm pretty happy with them.
Now i'm going to playtest some, and start really looking at the performance issues.
We'll probably update somewhat soon (don't know when)
Hey again guys... I'm afraid Twitchy's reply has made me curious, if anyone else feels like posting a replay of a good game they had with this mod (win or lose) I would be very grateful. Its always interesting to watch from a third person.
MAybe you upload it as 1 File, i think hosters like moddb may give you there space.
Question: I didnt yet figure put how to play coop with my friend.
We replaced the files from the multiplayer zip file, startet a game and after the loading it says "FATAL ERROR GAME HAST ABORTET" or something.
Is it normal that the Stuart Tank can takeout a German Panzer IV with 2 hits to his front? I have no Knowlegde about tanks, but in the Blitzkrieg Mod, wich is also about realism, the Panzer IV can handle a little Stuart pretty much better.
I would like to know how it was in real
@NeoJD: hi,glad you ask and guess what,no,the Stuart had little chance against the Pnz IV,if you had like 5 or 6 Stuarts possibly yes you will win since the Pnz IV can destroy a Stuart in 1 shot,let's wait for sweeten to read the Stuart bug and then wait for the fix.
NeoJD are you sure you first deleted the scar folder before replacing anything?
On a side note, I played today def whermacht and noticed that the howitzer from the ostgruppen does not move when you order it to fire outside its arc (hope you understand what I mean...). Is this intentional ?
Ps. by arc I dont mean range but those 3 lines that form a triangle
@doomis: this ability does work,first you need to click in the position you want to fire and then choose the barrage ability in the selected area but it must be inside the fire radius.
