Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts Discussion
Trainer Tools and Resources
The Ewiger mod would definitely be a very nice base for creating other mods as well.
The only thing I would add; is the ability to equip the infantry squads with individual weapons. An ability from the "Battle of Legends" mod for CoH.
But thats an extremely minor detail, considering the many other things this mod offers.
I made an "Invincible Allies" mod for myself. While it was relatively easy to make, it was also very tedious. I really appreciate how much work was put into this mod.
I love this mod!
Place the following files in your Company of Heroes main folder, by default it will be C:\Program Files\THQ\Company of Heroes
Once those files are in your Company of Heroes main folder, right click the RelicCOH.exe in that same folder and choose
"Send to -> Desktop (Create Shortcut)"
Look on your desktop, and right click on the Shortcut you just made, and choose Properties.
Within the menu the top most entry box is called "Target" and will have the program path inside it to your RelicCOH.exe
In that blank you must add to the end ONE SPACE, and paste in the following:
-modname Ewiger_Krieg -dev
If you installed the game to the default C:\ drive, the path will look like this, and you can copy/paste the entire entry as:
"C:\Program Files\THQ\Company of Heroes\RelicCOH.exe" -modname Ewiger_Krieg -dev
Once entered, click Apply, OK, and you're ready! To start the game, just use the new shortcut you've made with the added mod command.
I've very carefully and methodically worked out that list of instructions and I honestly don't know how to give the steps in any more broken-down form, however if you are confused on a specific step I could elaborate that step for you.
The overview of the steps is to basically put the downloaded files into your COH folder, make a shortcut to the game (RelicCOH.exe) file, and then edit that short cut with the previously mentioned extensions to enable the mod to work. If you are using version 2.300 of the game, the mod won't work at all because that patch is broken, hence most people are now using 2.301 or 2.202 so that their preferred mods will work.

I too have actually seen just that circumstance arise, and unfortunately it is a result of cloning over the flakverling from the PE over to the Wehrmacht. I can of course remove the falkverling from the Wehrmacht quite easily, but then the luftwaffe units wouldn't be able to build them anymore.
A more simple workaround is to use the level-skip option:
By going to
Documents\My Games\Company of Heroes\Savegames\Ewiger_Krieg\Campaigns\coh
(Win XP) Look for the campaignstate.lua file and open it with any text editor, notepad will work perfectly fine. Inside the file there are a few lines and you're going to edit: campaignid = "coh" Whatever value is by "maxmission =", add 1 to it, save the file and close it, you will then be able to select the level after the one you are currently on to skip over it. I'm likely going to just remove the flakverling from the axis all together to completely avoid the situation in a future update, but I've kept it in thus far for the skirmish play.

Of course there is a way to unlock the Normandy campaign in COH:OF.
1) Go to the store
2) Purchase Company of Heroes
3) Input the COH game-key when you click on access the Normandy campaign through the campaign menu
Not to be mean, but I'm not in the business of helping people to circumvent the proper (and legal) methods of acquiring the game.
Assuming innocence, the Normandy campaign is the Allied campaign from the original Company of Heroes, which Opposing Fronts is built on top of. I -will- say that you don't actually need COH installed simultaneously with COH:OF in order to play the Normandy campaign, but a game key from COH is required for it to be unlocked.
As for some units still being mute, unfortunately that's a side effect of how the mod works. To put it simply, many units that simply don't exist for a given faction normally have obviously been more or less forced into their "rosters" of units they can now build. Obviously though, this was bound to have side effects as that's not really how the game was really intended to be originally, and one of those side effects is that sometimes unit speech for specific units may either wind up being generic to that faction (for instance, U.S. units sounding like English and vice versa when used by the other faction than normal), or in other cases for them to have no speech pattern at all.
Technically, it -is- possible to move around or replicate the necessary sounds, unfortunately it would mean the mod would explode from less than 3MB to a number I'm reluctant to even guess at, which I'd have little problem uploading, however downloading would be more of a problem for the end users (particularly when it's gone through so many iterations thus far) and of course hosting would potentially be more bothersome.
Considering it's for the most part an "aural" issue (err... don't say that out loud as it may well be misinterpreted ) it winds up being more trouble than it's worth to meddle with, particularly without certainty of success.
Finally, I recommend looking at the 7-5-2008, minor tweak to correct the munitions halftrack's goliath/mines. Beyond that it should be the same.
