Being Greenlit is great ! Congrats and I am a huge supporter, BUT this broken Mod is hurting your Brand. Credibility is at risk every day that passes that this is not repaired. Many things are out of our control in life but somehow we make it happen. Those are the successful companies, and this is no easy business to be in.

That being said I await the fix of this MOD.

Happy New Years !

Hello, at the beginning I want to thanks for your patience for my questions. I couldn't post earlier due to lost my web connection. So, I installed via Steam CoH:ToV and used keys from my library to unlock all game content. It's looks like it will be works fine, all campaignes were unlocked and game is in v.2.602. I'm worry about online playing because there's no options for me to create Relic account (button "Create account" is not highlighted for me) and I'm seeing info that "You are offline". I hope Guys you will have ideas how to play online using older CoH version. For now I played against AI but in the future if I will have more freetime I'd like to try compete with other players.

Greetings and happy 2014 year
P.S. Please continue your fantastic work :)

Thanks for the update regarding EF's future.  I have been playing the original COH and it just isn't near the same experience etc.  Recently I have had problems with Steam crashing everytime I exit out of COH.  Is life without Steam possible?

I'd like to just tell You, dear devs, that making MOD work on new steam version with recent patch is possible. At least, "Modern Combat" released a hotfix. Don't worry that much, then. Good luck on further work, being greenlit.

Appreciate for EF team work!!

I put "-dev -mod Eastern Front" into set launch options box but still doesn't work(no respond when I start with steam ToV launcher)

And now I can't even sign in with ToV and can only play offline with computers, what is your status ?

Thank you for your reply in advance! My first 2014 wish is now playing EF... :-[

Cheers

Hi Blackbishop

Thanks for your reply, I‘ve tried with underline but still doesn't work.
I want to know if I've forgotten my Relic password and can only play offline (ToV and OF), may still play EF in future ? Because now seems impossible to recovery my Relic passwords and always can't verify media.

Sorry may not appropriated thread, I will delete it.

The servers are shut down, so you'll always need your game disc to verify the game from now on if you plan to use 2.602. However, you could also use a mini image/disc image of your legally purchased version to start it up if your cd broke or something.

Abuse is abuse and has to go.

Hi Thanks very very much, but I am Steam user and I don't have disc. Can I use my steam product key activate a CD or mds file?
If yes, could you tell me where I can download a CoH mds file ?

Sorry I am not a expert and EF is the only game I can play.

Cheers!

First of all, I would like to congratulate and thank the EF team for coming this far and giving us so much joy and excitement through this mod. Frankly, this is my first day in the group and my first post. I would just like to say that i have been a fan of this mod since the beginning and had only stopped playing since 1.7 due to the mod moving to steam so I would really appreciate it, including a bunch of friends of mine if the mod would continue to develop the one compatible to the previous one, allowing us to be a consistent participant of the glory that is EF. Again, Thank you and Good Luck! God Bless America! For the Commonwealth! Banzai! Heil! FOR THE MOTHERLAND!
