[FAQ] How to install Steam COH & BK mod, read before posting!

Postby Panzerblitz1 » 03 Mar 2017, 16:41

Hello boyz & girlz, you are new to Company of Heroes and want to play the game with blitzkrieg mod in it?



First of all, Don't use a non original Company of Heroes game copy, the original game cost nothing on Steam and will work 100% of the time when updated, do not seek help here if your game is not an original Steam/Relic/Sega product, if you have a cracked game, you will get some bugs, glitches, incompabilities, game errors, crashes etc... we just can't help you with that.



A-INSTALLING COMPANY OF HEROES STEAM VERSION:

1)- Get Company of Heroes from Steam, you need a Steam account for that, if you don't have a Steam account, you will need to create one.

Which Company of Heroes do i need to buy in order to play Blitzkrieg mod?

The best is to buy the complete Company of Heroes collection from Steam, or at least the extension "Tales of Valor" who regroup the 4 Company of heroes factions, U.S.A., Commonwealth (brits), PE (Panzer Elite), WH (Wehrmarcht) and all the reward units models, the minimum required is the Company of heroes "Opposing Fronts" extension or DLC.

2)- You already bought Company of Heroes but from a CD-Rom?, well, its very simple, go to your steam account and add the Game CD-Rom # key to Steam and you will be able to download for free the latest version of your game on Steam.


3)-Once you have installed the Steam client, launch the client and enter your login credentials. When you are logged into your account, click the button in the bottom left corner that says "+ ADD A GAME…" to register the product key to your account.
ATTENTION: YOU CAN ONLY REGISTER STEAM KEYS THROUGH THE STEAM PROGRAM, NOT THE WEBSITE! THERE IS NO "+ADD A GAME..." ON THE STEAM WEBSITE ANYWHERE!
In the pop-up window, select the "Activate a Product on Steam" option. This will open up a new window.

Follow the prompts, and paste or enter the numerical key you copied from your download page into the "Product Code" field.

Hit "NEXT>." If your key is valid, Steam will accept it and you will be taken to your library where you will be able to download and play your newly registered game!

Note: If the key extends beyond the reach of the key field on your download page, simply double-click inside the field to select the whole key. This way, regardless of how much of the key looks to be cut off, you will copy the whole thing!

Image


From your LIBRARY tab you can see all games registered to your Steam account. You can then select a game and it will bring up a splash page with a large INSTALL button you can click on to install your games. Once your games are installed, the Install button will change to a PLAY button!

Image


The correct installation path by default of your Company of Heroes Steam version in your PC will be in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch



B-INSTALLING BLITZKRIEG MOD FOR COMPANY OF HEROES STEAM VERSION:

Image



1) Download the Blitzkrieg full version V 4.8.6.0.
2) Download the Blitzkrieg latest patch, currently its the V 4.9.6, but this will change and you will need to always pick the newest one, so Bk full game + newest patch update, thats all.
3) Download the 2 Blitzkrieg map packs 1 & 2.


The first time you will launch the Blitzkrieg mod installer MAKE SURE you have the right installation path in it! which is your COH Steam new version: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch otherwise it will not work, so make sure you are installing Blitzkrieg mod in your Company of Heroes Steam version.

If your install isn't located in the Steam default path make a "right click" on COH in steam, properties, LOCAL FILES tab, BROWSE LOCAL FILES... it will open on correct path, that has to be the same as in installer.

You will need to do the same for ALL Blitzkrieg mod contents like Map packs, patch updates or if you add the Historical add-on (D-Day June 1944/ Afrika 43) to it.

Image

Your Company of Heroes Steam version default installation root game folder must look like that in your PC files.

Image

Always use the Blitzkrieg mod shortcut icon to play Blitzkrieg, double click on it, PLAY!
Image





C-INSTALLING HISTORICAL ADD-ON FOR BLITZKRIEG MOD (optional)

Image



Its exactely the same way you installed Blitzkrieg mod, same thing, same path, in order to play Blitzkrieg mod with D-Day June 1944 and Afrika 43 addon you will need to use only the Historical add-on shortcut icon and the Historical add-on launcher.
