Yeah, I made sure everything works now and it does.  I had to just make a brand new shortcut.  Thanks for the help.  Bad ass mod too.  Now to get my friends to download it so I can play it instead of the regular game.

People, I have a problem. I installed EF, and entered the CoH directory in the EF Launcher, and downloaded and istalled all the updates, but when I press "Play" it only launches normal CoH ver. 1.71.0. I created a shortcut but it doesn't help.
P.S. I haven't got Opposing Fronts, only the basic game.

You need to update your game to 2.601, even if you don't own the other titles.

Download them from here if you use torrent client:
http://cohpatch.relic.com/

Or from here if you want DD:
http://www.patches-scrolls.de/company_of_heroes.php

Make sure you download the correct patch for your language.

No. Not unless you buy the games (OF, ToV or gold edition etc.).
Actually, all game files will be there, but locked for your use.

Is there any known command to limit RAM usage by the game to a certain given (allowed by user) value?

Or you can tell me, how do I use the EF launcher to run vCoH, since all those options in the launcher are juicy and so-o-o useful :)

Iirc, if you run the launcher and you don't have EF module file you will run vCoH ;D.

Hm... interesting.
What if I'm running some "random mod", which I do at times. How can I make use of this most wonderful and elaborated launcher in that case?

Well, the launcher is hardcoded to launch Eastern Front everytime so, that would be not possible... at least not normally.

[sad, sad sigh]
Then let's go back to step 1:
Is there any known console command for limiting RAM usage by the game to a certain specified (by user) amount?
Something of the kind for CPU core number?

You will need to make another program to do that. You can set the Core number manually (ctrl+shift+del->processes->right click over the process->set affinity). But for the ram the only way i see you can do it, it's by writing a small app to do that.

Can you give me the initial (un-coded) launcher programme, so I can edit it for my private usage?
