Blitzkrieg Mod 4.8.6.0 Patch

Postby Wolf » 24 Feb 2015, 20:37

Hey hey hey,

another new Blitzkrieg version!

Be warned, that launcher will DELETE all files and subdirectories in your Blitzkrieg folder besides these used for BK Patch, that may include additional skins or files you might have saved there. Backup first, if you don't want to lose them.

Install it on top of 4.8.0.0 / 4.8.1.0 / 4.8.2.0 / 4.8.3.0 / 4.8.5.0, it doesn't matter which of these, go fetch it here:
Patch 4.8.6.0 - Mediafire

New players can also use full version download (no need to install 4.8.0.0 before), be warned, its quite big (1.7 GB), if you already had 4.8.0.0 or higher, you don't need this:
Full 4.8.6.0 installation - Mediafire | MODDB

You can also download mappack (its still the old 4.8 one, but with new installer, so old players don't need it):
Mappack 4.8.6.0 - Mediafire

Also we would like to inform you that old website is down, for unknown reason and since we cannot reach the old developer for a long time, we can't know for sure what happened.

As bkmod.net is currently the main website of Blitzkrieg mod and will also be for CoH2 Blitzkrieg mod, we added Donation button in upper menu, some of you asked how or where to send donations, here is your answer :)

This patch change a lot of things and we still have some things unresolved, its very probable that next patch will be in next 2-3 weeks.

Report any bugs on forums and have a nice game.

One more thing - this was forgotten in the changelog but Schwimms had probably wrong (not sure if it was an oversight or intention) armor type which made it more durable (when compared to Bikes) against certain hand held AT wepons. It is fixed now too.

What problem exactly?

Try to turn off your antivirus for a while.

Also please paste output of this program so I can see what .net you have. Its in your clipboard when you run the program.

well, i just had my first game with BK doc and it seems that this + 1 CP works so far. At least enemies had a chance to get sufficient and adequate AT to the front when i got my Tank IV mass prod upgrade. What a difference a single CP can make sometimes. I did not expect this. I will test it further on other maps (last played was veules-les-rosses or whats the name is). AA couldnt be tested properly.

Can you try to redownload the patch from the mediafire ? I changed version of the launcher, it probably should work?

If someone were to donate a significant amount, would they be given a 'Shareholder' status, and be able to have some say in the decision making process? (A little late now)

No, donations will not grant you any privileges, maybe some kind of title on forum, but you can't buy kind of "vote".

Ah, what a shame.

I'd prefer if I were to be able to gain in sinking my funds into something, though I can sink my wealth into something else in which I can gain from.

Also, does the Donation money go into Funding a Rolls Royce as the Company car? :lol:

I am not sure but i raped commandos and AB just with stormtooper and a Tank IV:P.... anyway. Currently i do consider stormtoopers and AB as the best late game infantry. They do vet up quickly, they are flexibel and they have the cheapest reinforce cost so far. I think for the next patch the 101st could really be cheaper to call but more expensive to reinforce. Commandos currently cant compete in late game either with stormtoopers nor with AB 101st (when they have the weapons). The Luftwaffe inf also struggles a bit in late game against AB but its OK since they are the strongest in early game. The doc is also pretty versatile as compensation for late game. Maybe really +1 or +2 reinforce cost for 101st and stormtoopers. The off map and house call in stormtoopers should then cost 400 mp instead 450 like when being build in stormtooper HT.

Its important in whos hands airborne doc is you know:). 101s are my absolete favorites in late game, storms are also not bad, but MP44 doing too low damage to veted commando and aiborne rangers on long distance, thats why grens with MG42 and fire\frag nades on y second place (with defence bonuse they survive much better than storms).

Luftwaffe is actually dissapointing for me now (i mean inf, not whole doc), in early game couple of snipers will make off both your luft units, in late game gebirgsjaegers are good, but there is actually no use to fallchirmjaegers (why they have less hp than Grenadiers even?), FG42 is a strange weapon, in theory its good on all ranges, but on practise Airborne with mgs bashing falls on all ranges, commando with enfields (after cp unlocks) winning on mid-long range, and rangers with Thompsons winning on close range, so, "not bad" perfomance on all ranges means actually bad perfomance on all ranges:D alied players just must keep their inf on best distance for their weapons and everything is ok, thats why i use regiment 5 only in early game and never rebuild them in case of loosing (almost impossible to get veterancy for them in late game, requires very many kills which are not easy to earn), because in late game they are getting outnumbered and outperfomed by almost all alied infantry, also not cost effective ( even usa inf doc, 2 rifles squads + 4 bars are doing short job to falls and cost only 340 mp + 80 ammo), as i already wrote somewhere, i had some matches Raf vs Luft on v4.7. and i can claim that falls are much better there, 1impulse's reg.5 were blowing my unveted commando in several bursts, and also were good in late game against them, even with old raf invisible smoke (as i noticed, probably rate of FG42 fire was faster).

Because of all that, terror grens with Mp44 and fire nades\storms with mp44 and bundles are much better in any assaults than reg. 5 (fast vet, MP44 much better in close range than FG42, cheaper, faster reinforcement).

On this topic i have some issues, because i think its very stupid that grens and storms are much better than inf oriented axis doc, and this doc absolutely cant handle alied inf docs.

-Give Gebirgs sniper shot ability (similar to brits inf section) to have at least some chances against snipers, or idk, maybe Gebirgs sniper with G43 unit drop, or sniper in Gerbirgs squad after CP vet. unlock, choose any you like...
-Give reg. 5 at least similar amount of hp as for Stormtroopers, and tune FG 42 rate of fire, accuracy (it was really better in old times man!)
-PE unlock of faster vet up for infantry must reflect luft units too.

The reg5 isnt that bad vs all enemie infantry. Only 101st can be really fearfull. The reinforce cost got increased because it was simply too easy with commandos and Luft inf to get rich in late... just blobb, vet and win and get rich. Thats what i think the 101st could cost more in reinforce cost and bit cheaper to build. Though each US doc should outnumber their opponent counterpart units but therefore docs are more restricted and less versatile. So what axis dont have in numbers they have in their doc versatility. And i said that luft doc in late game is best played as support (repairing tanks, airplanes, 88, ambushes, inf support for tanks and also able to field own tanks) and to keep skrimishing the enemie as well.

The Gebirgs are cool and ive beat rangers on close range even with 1 men left. Also their ability bar is full and i also dont like snipers in squads at all (101st HQ, sas, SS squad). Considering that one sniper cost 350 mp when build then the 6 other men of SAS or SS do cost like 300 (SAS) and 200 (SS).

What i can agree that Luft inf should have same HP has stormtoopers and grens (thought its the case) but idk their armor types. I also dont know if 101st or 82nd has as much HP and other rangers and which armor types they have.


The Reg 5 could maybe get a small weapon buff. The rof of FG42 was 750 ronds per seond. The stg had something arround 500 but in game it seems that stg is much faster. Accuracy on close-mid range in auto fire mode was still better for stg as the stg had less gun poweder and thus less reccoil. But i know what you mean... stg seems to be better at most distances than FG42.


About stormtrooper: I had game with 1 leader squad, 1 assault with stg and lmg and one suppression squad and they killed together more than 200 AB´s and commands and sas, all veted with upgrades. Alone my leader squad killed commandos on close range and got more than 100 kills alone. The suppression squad under affect of vet 5 leader squad killed sten commandos with brens and 101st at the same time very fast (each of the two lmgs shot a different enemie squad).

They might get their veterancy gain fastened a bit, but I don't think we did anything to the FG42.

And I agree with warhawks (duh) that they are especially good in early game and luft is overall very good support doctrine in late game, which doesn't mean they are bad in late.

SAS doesn't have a sniper iirc?
