Hmmm... I've uncovered another thing, have the Vista users tried turning off the User Account Control (UAC)? I is in Control Panel/User Accounts/UAC and there will be a check box, reboot, and it should take effect.

If nothing current is working the only immediate solution is reversion to 2.202 (this is the version I highly recommend) or earlier before Relic decided it was so important to break the game two patches in a row.

What I did when 2.300 ruined the -dev command was simply uninstall, reinstall, and forcibly deny the game access to the internet by having my firewall stop it or just disconnect from the internet but that's a less elegant solution. Anyway, it needs to be made so that it can't auto patch, which if you let it check, it will always see the latest patch and basically force you to update (which I despise from the core of my being, I should be the final decider of whether or not I patch up, not Relic).

I know it's a pain in the butt, the game will require you to "validate the game disk" when you start up, and if you have the disk in the drive it will check it real fast and you're good to go, and no auto updates to worry about.

You can get all of the manually applied patches at places like:

www.gamershell.com/

Which I use over most other file sites since there are no queues, plenty of mirrors, and the speeds are good.

If the necessary steps are taken and the vista work around still won't let you play, then the only remaining option is to revert to a previous version that actually did work. Like I've said several times already, it's simply not the mod that's not working, because it doesn't actually -do- anything but work with what the game already has. If the mod isn't working, and all proper steps to make it function are taken, then it's actually the game that has some limiting factor, which is the case now in 2.300 and 2.301

I knew my skepticism on whether or not Relic would actually fix the 2.3 bug was well founded, they merely reduced it from completely removed to "just a little broken" and it seems intermittent, some people are plagued with the dysfunction while others are completely unaffected, and unfortunately my hands are completely tied.

Again, be sure to thank Relic properly for their fine work in "fixing" what wasn't broken with the 2.300 patch that made it broken then requiring 2.301 to unbreak some of it, and the now certain requirement of another patch yet to come, only to get back to the stability we already had in 2.202 patch.

Glad at least one potential problem is solved. It wasn't until one of my vista using friends told me he had done that months and months ago that it even occurred to us that maybe it had some credence here. So looking on the RelicNews forums (which I highly recommend for much more diverse information) I quickly found one person referring to just that.

Hope you like it and have lots of fun with it

Hello all, an update, announcement, good news and a little bad news.


The bad news first...

As of this posting, I can no longer completely support Ewiger Krieg with use in versions 2.300 and 2.301 of Opposing Fronts due to problems well beyond my control. This isn't to say that it won't work, because even with those versions it -can- work (I'm currently using 2.301), but if it isn't working in your instance then it's up to fixing the game itself rather than anything to do with the mod.

When I have absolute confirmation of a post-2.301 patch of the game that unquestionably works as well as pre-2.3, I will fully endorse it with open arms, and in the mean while my full support of Ewiger Krieg on all other versions is completely unchanged. Unfortunately I alone can not bring order to the chaos Relic Studios insisted on putting into 2.300 and 2.301, so until those bugs are addressed those two versions are somewhat "omitted".

Now enough with the gloomy stuff, GOOD news...

After putting it off and putting it off, I decided today was the day to fix the handful of "pink boxes" for icons on the unit build menus.

Link
savefile.com/projects/808636518

There you will see the newest entry as:

"Ewiger Krieg Easy Build With New Unit Icons"

This version updates the instructions file, as well as adds new icons to the build menus to replace the unsightly pink boxes!

Units with proper icons are:

King Tiger, Jagdtiger, Wirblewind, Luftwaffe, Churchill Crocodile, and a home made icon for the British Heavy Machine gun squad by none other than your friendly neighborhood knightpress!

Updating is not required, it's purely cosmetic but nice to see the units' icons in the build menus rather than gaudy pink boxes... and let's face it, when you're in the mood to wage some war, finding a swatch of pink decorating the inside of an army base sort of throws off the atmosphere you're going for.

New and more improved still! The solution to the muted sound is here! Future versions will automatically have this taken into account, but for now, it's easy enough for everyone to fix individually if they choose.

Open the Ewiger_Krieg.module file (use notepad) and look for this passage:

[data:english:02]
folder = Ewiger_Krieg\DataSoundEnglish
archive.01 = Ewiger_Krieg\Archives\Ewiger_KriegSoundSpeechEnglish
archive.02 = Ewiger_Krieg\Archives\Ewiger_KriegAlliesSpeechEnglish
archive.03 = Ewiger_Krieg\Archives\Ewiger_KriegAxisSpeechEnglish
archive.04 = Ewiger_Krieg\Archives\Ewiger_KriegSoundNISEnglish

[data:english:03]
folder = WW2\Locale\English\Data
archive.01 = WW2\Archives\WW2Locale-English

[data:english:04]
folder = WW2\DataSoundEnglish
archive.01 = WW2\Archives\WW2SoundSpeechEnglish
archive.02 = WW2\Archives\WW2AlliesSpeechEnglish
archive.03 = WW2\Archives\WW2AxisSpeechEnglish
archive.04 = WW2\Archives\WW2SoundNISEnglish
archive.05 = WW2\Archives\OFCoreSpeechEnglish
archive.06 = WW2\Archives\OFCoreSpeechEnglish


Once you find it, edit it so that it looks like (you can copy/paste over the section):

[data:english:02]
folder = Ewiger_Krieg\DataSoundEnglish
archive.01 = Ewiger_Krieg\Archives\Ewiger_KriegSoundSpeechEnglish
archive.02 = Ewiger_Krieg\Archives\Ewiger_KriegAlliesSpeechEnglish
archive.03 = Ewiger_Krieg\Archives\Ewiger_KriegAxisSpeechEnglish
archive.04 = Ewiger_Krieg\Archives\Ewiger_KriegSoundNISEnglish
archive.05 = WW2\Archives\OFCoreSpeechEnglish
archive.06 = WW2\Archives\OFFullSpeechEnglish

[data:english:03]
folder = WW2\Locale\English\Data
archive.01 = WW2\Archives\WW2Locale-English

[data:english:04]
folder = WW2\DataSoundEnglish
archive.01 = WW2\Archives\WW2SoundSpeechEnglish
archive.02 = WW2\Archives\WW2AlliesSpeechEnglish
archive.03 = WW2\Archives\WW2AxisSpeechEnglish
archive.04 = WW2\Archives\WW2SoundNISEnglish
archive.05 = WW2\Archives\OFCoreSpeechEnglish
archive.06 = WW2\Archives\OFFullSpeechEnglish


That -should- correct the sound issues, if need be, delete the entire Ewiger_Krieg folder and .module files, and re-copy/paste them into the main folder and then perform the edit to the Ewiger_Krieg.module file again.

Good news! The version uploaded on Cheat Happens includes the fixed icons now.

If you want to address the sound issue as well, just look to the previous post and that's fixed too
