Company of Heroes Patch 2.300 and Modding
Wed, 19 Mar 2008 - 5:05pm — Corsix
If you've gone online with CoH in the past two days, you'll have been required to download the new 2.300 patch.
The good news: lots of balance fixes, team automatch, hopefully better RO server, other niceties
The bad news: "-dev" mode no longer works, making it difficult to develop and run mods and custom maps
Apparently, Relic are working on a fix for this, but in the meantime I have a temporary solution:
Download www.corsix.org/misc/COH2300dev.rar and extract it to your Company of Heroes folder (probably something like C:\Program Files\THQ\Company of Heroes). RelicCOH.exe has -dev permanently turned off in 2.300, and the RelicCOHUnblocked.exe you just placed in your folder has -dev permanently turned on. Set your shortcuts to use the unblocked EXE if you want dev mode. For convenience, the included batch file can be used to swap the two files over - simply double click RelicCOHSwap(.bat) to swap -dev mode between permanently off and permanently on. Before applying any future patches, remember to swap things back to how they were originally and then delete the custom EXE.
RelicCOHunblocked.exe Download www.corsix.org/misc/COH2300dev.rar
Barring that, there is a 2.301 patch coming "Soon(tm)" from Relic, but what they mean by soon may have you requesting in your will that your heirs download it as a last wish
If you absolutely have to have a trainer and -dev right now, the best overall solution right now is to uninstall, reinstall, block the game from internet access so that it can't auto update, then manually download and update the game to version 2.202
