    Hello fellow WWII history nuts!


    I'm writing to introduce you to another mod you may be interested in trying out.

    Battle of the Bulge is a reality mod for Relic's RTS game Company of Heroes and CoH:Opposing Fronts. It is set during the Ardennes offensive of 1944-45. Many gameplay changes have been made in order to put a more tactical and realistic bent on the game (think of the old Close Combat series, but with cutting edge graphics!) Too many to list here...
    To find out more about the BotB mod click here for an introduction:
    BotB on ModDB

    Now is a great time to give it BotB a try. Take advantage of all the great deals on CoH and CoH:OF (its even free with some GPUs!) and give it a try. Installation is simple with our new installer version and it won't interfere with your orginal CoH in any way whatsoever. Get onboard now and you will be ready for some of the things we have planned for 2009:
    -A patch (coming soon) to fix the known bugs, some balance issues and add new maps
    -A new version eliminating Base buildings, using company commanders to call in all units, based on historically accurate unit formations.
    -Small single player scripted missions
    -and more....

    Download it here

    And don't forget to vote for us as your favorite ModDB (click here for the link) mod of the year!!

    Big News!!!

    Well, you were all probably expecting to have to wait at least another month for this but we wanted to whet your appetites for the full patch (due out after Halftrack returns from his Asian trek)! But we know you have already waited long enough for this so here it is;
    This hotfix will take care of many of the gameplay issues with BotB, including the 'ubershreck bug' (see below for a full changelist).

    We strongly advise that everyone playing online downloads this hotfix as you will not be able to play online against people who do not have it installed!!

    download it here: hotfix-201
    and don't forget to vote for BotB as one of your favorite mods of the year!!

    Installation instructions:
    Installation is easy:
    download the zip file
    extract it to your Company of Heroes root folder (ie c:/programfiles/THQ/companyofheroes)
    click 'yes' to overwrite the old attribarchive
    Enjoy playing!
