As most of you will know, on May 7th the Reliconline servers will be going down, and the Company of Heroes multiplayer will be handled via steamworks servers. Naturally this is relevant to OMG being a primarily multiplayer mod. While it will still be technically possible to play on the old version via hamachi and other LAN virtualisation programs, I would recommend for the sake of segmentation that everyone switch over to the new steam version. Fret not! it is a relatively painless process, and the new version actually runs significantly faster. So Here's a quick run down:
1. Select “Activate a Product On Steam” from the “Games” menu
2. Enter your Company of Heroes CD-Key in the resulting menu
3. Repeat for the Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor expansion packs
4. This will add a new entry into your steam library, Company of Heroes (new steam version):
5. OF and ToV will show up as DLC under the properties tab of the game:
So that's Company of heroes set up, now onto OMG! As I previously mentioned here, it is already compatible with the new version:http://www.omgmod.org/index.php?topic=11498
Installation is pretty straight forward, you simply need to have OMG in your new company of heroes directory, which should be something like this:
Program Files/Steam/Steamapps/common/Company of Heroes Relaunch
to save yourself some time, you can drag both the Updater and the OMGmod folder from your old COH directory into the new one.
!!Remember to right click the launcher> select 'set folder', find your relaunch folder and restart(!) the updater. This will validate your existing files and download anything missing automatically!!:
> last thing - you need to make sure your OMG profile name matches your ingame
steam username. You have 2 options for this, you can either change your steam username to match your profile, or you can PM me your steam username and I can change it for you.
Happy hunting, any queries you can post here
