Am unable to launch the tutorial for Panzer Elite or British troops (OF). The directions say that it must be restarted but that just leads to the same thing. Any ideas?
You installed OF right?
Oh yes, i had C of H originally and then purchased OF. Installed it and been playing it but when trying to run those new tutorials, they won't run. Tried with the DVD in or out, router disconnected, etc...
This sounds like a job for... UNINSTALLER MAN!!!!!!! Yup, this is definately the case, you'll have to uninstall and do a clean reinstall of the whole game, that means after uninstalling it you'll have to delete any associated folders (you can keep your savegames, and mod related files though, just remember to paste them back in once you've reinstalled).
LD, i agree. It's time for uninstaller man! I didn't notice this before because i wasn't looking for it but I also am unable to play the campaigns because the new ones are greyed out. I am going to purge and reinstall and report back later. Thanks all.
Bummer. I reinstalled, twice! Completely patched. Still the same.
When you reinstalled, did you reinstall both or just one? Plus are you using the "Gold" Edition with both CoH and OF, and if so, is it the single or double disc version, and single or double CD key version? The most reliable way i've found is once uninstalled, delete all files related to CoH, that's the Game's main folder, the folder in My Games, the folder in the start menu, and the registry keys (run regedit.exe). Once thats all cleaned and out of the way, install CoH, patch to v1.71, install OF, patch to v2.301. When installing make sure you use you CoH CD key when installing CoH, and be sure to use the OF CD key when installing OF. It might alos be helpful to disable your internet while installing and patching everything, to prevent any interference from RelicOnline.
OK, I got it. As silly as this sounds, i was back and forth with THQ tech. Bottom line is I had to go to my account and select "add product". Then i saw my key code there and clicked on it and voila, I'm in! Everything up and running. You think that would have been in the installation instructions somewhere? You think THQ would have mentioned that to me a little earlier in the back and forth? But the tech lady finally got me there. Thanks to all who contributed here. Now if I could only understand the panzer elite units I would be happy.
