The problem is, we don't support pirate versions of CoH, of course, that doesn't mean you can't use EF, just that the staff is not going to assist you if you have problems.

You will never able to play EF if your CoH game isn't updated to 2.602. If you crack your game you cannot patch it anymore. Quite daunting don't you think?

Perhaps some kind member of this forum could send you a copy? Any idea if customs would seize it?

I can give him a ToV copy from steam if he wants(it's a shame that is no longer in offer)... ofc he will have to download 9GBs, but it's better because he doesn't have to mess around with patches :-S.

@enrique
What are your pc specs?

Glad to hear it you made it work.

We don't use airfields to build planes because coh doesn't allow it. CoH is only for ground battles. Hence, no ships as well (Except for Pacific Thunder mod maybe :P).

Q: What do I need to play EF?
A: You only need a single copy of either CoH, OF or ToV. Having two or more of them is fine as well. It is important to have your game patched to 2.602.


Regarding updating to patch 2.602, can I update directly from patch 2.501 to patch 2.602 so I can play EF 1.4? My problem is I cannot play the Soviet Army in Skirmish mode because it's locked.

No, you need to download and install all the updates from 2.501 to 2.602.

Thanks and when I did that last night, I encountered an error message telling me that the "ModManager.dll" is corrupted when I launched CoH: ToV & EF so I wasn't able to play the game. I'm planning to uninstall/reinstall again tonight but what does that error message mean?
