Sometimes you can't use EF launcher, but you can play Eastern_Front by creating a shorcut following these steps:
- Right Click over the desktop->New->Shorcut
- Enter your CoH directory, in example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steamapps\Company of Heroes Relaunch\RelicCoH.exe" -dev -mod Eastern_Front -nomovies (with quotes)
- Enjoy Eastern Front!
Remember to double check if you are writing the correct path creating the shorcut.
You can add the following parameters to your shorcut:
-dev this enables developer options (also allows you
to play custom maps not formated as a ".sga")
-nomovies this skips opening intro movies.
-noclip no videos when starting the game, saves your "Esc"-key
-unlock_all_missions exactly what it says
-nosound disables the sound system.
-refresh xx sets the game refresh rate (ie. -refresh 60).
-minvidmem 32 this works around the video-memory check
-novsync disables Vsync (for higher fps then 60).
-notriplebuffer disables triple buffering
-perftest use with -novsync to dump a log file of the performance
test to \documents\my games\coh\logfiles
-nolitter used with DX10 and removes the "litter" objects that busy up the world.
-speech disables unit in game speech
-fastload reduces loading time
While there are no limits of what commands you can use at a given time, all this stuff must be used under your own risk
Remember to always update your game manually because you aren't going to use the autoupdate feature of the launcher.Cannot download the patches? Look here!
