Just Awesome, BotB is a CoH Mod, places you in the Brutal Battle of the Bulge.

-What is this?

Almost everything is Converted, exept a fewer things. Example, you have Sturmtigers for Germany, M36 Jackson for USA.

This mod changes the Combat system, add 15 Maps whit intense combat. It also changed the Tech Tree, not really sure about the US One (I dont play as USA XD), but the german have 3 Roles, called "16 Panzergranadier Army", a descrption of the Real Div (Note: I dont remember about all the Names.. i said 16th Panzergrenadier amy as an example).

Germany have a SS Tree, wich is awesome, can build King Tigers from the Panzerkommand and call in Kampfgruppe Pieppers or Pippers!! or a Heavy SS Kampfgruppe!!! OMG!

The Trees are very different from the vCoH, german can now build Trenches, USA can now Call the Bastogne General (Damn, another name that i dont remember!), a ability called "nuts", i think it gives bonuss for the US.

When you start, you engi will be able to Deploy Barracks, and the normal Building, all military buildings are disabled until you select a new Doctrine.

It doesnt affect you game at all, dont worry about that. I know people that aves more than 3 Mods and vCoH works Perfeclty

Pics:

Ussaulting a Hill... i love this Pic, sadly i dindt know abuot the Commands that gives perfect shots!

This is a Sadly Pic.

A US Mortar team was firing into German Positions. The German neaby unit responded the treat. In this Pic, you can see a US Soldier trying to save his Friend (Meh, Bug xD they are actually falling :P ), and a german Officer watches the Scene.. think that is nothing?

Yup. Matyast and I keep playing this mod a lot with our friend Leopardi. It's an amazing work and great achievement for COH mods. I dont like vanilla COH anymore after playing BotB. Its _that_ good.

Company of heroes? real time WWII strategy game, gameplay comparable to Dawn of War, features DDay and Market Garden and four armies: USA GB Wehrmacht Panzer Elite (which is basically some ad hoc Kampfgruppe with Market Garden background)

BotB is a mod for that game, featuring (surprise) the battle of the bulge.

At first I thought COH vanilla was quite damn good game and I liked playing through the american campaign. But when I got into multiplayer mayhem with Matyast and Leopardi, the campaigns of the germans and british just got left behind and I havent completed them yet. First we played vanilla COH, then tried out Normandy 44 mod which was quite good aswell but it had some flaws we didnt like that much. And then came BotB for Opposing Fronts. We fell in love with that mod and now when version 2 is out, we've been playing it damn a lot and it still amazes me how well done it is. Only a couple of bugs (one of which is a possible gamebreaker but it can be avoided) and very polished gameplay, along with very interesting maps and new setup. Nothing like shredding that King Tiger to scrap metal with that trusty old M36!

I got questions! I'm not that much into CoH, but some of my friends are. So, their biggest problem was, when one of them installed some custom maps, causing him to have a different version than the others, who did not install the custom maps. So, in order to play together again, he had to reinstall the game completely. Somehow the version number was messed up by installing these custom maps. Since that day, it is recommended in my circle olf friends to not install any custom content. Can you dispel my doubts? How is the mod working? Does it affect the installation of the game itself? Any recommendations what to do or how to install?

Edit: Where is their homepage? Do they got one?

Is this the CoH blood spatter? Or should I say, "tissue explosion"? Jeez, that's a bunch of...something.

I too am not familiar with Coh other than the name. From your description torenico, it seems like it is not a true fps, but sort of a combination RTS/shooter. Or is it 3rd person point of view?
