How To Install Blitzkrieg
It's very simple and straight-forward, simply install Company of Hereos (New Steam Version) and then go to your old Company of Heroes folder, where you have Blitzkrieg installed and look for the following files;

• Blitzkrieg (Folder)
• Blitzkrieg.ico
• Blitzkrieg-Mod.exe
• Blitzkrieg.module
• BlitzkriegDLC1.module
• BlitzkriegDLC2.module
• BlitzkriegDLC3.module
• BlitzkriegOps.module

Copy the folder as well as those files and paste them into Steam/steamapps/common/Company of heroes Relaunch/.

After you've done so, you're all set and can launch Blitzkrieg by right-clicking Company of Hereos (New Steam Version), going to Properties and Set Launch Options - use the following parameters;

-nomovies -mod Blitzkrieg
-nomovies gets rid of the introduction videos played every time you start the game.

Executable as well as the icon file are most likely not needed, since you can directly launch it through Steam with the overlay working perfectly.

"-nomovies -mod Blitzkrieg"
-> Are custom maps working without the -dev parameter? I simple used the blitzkrieg.exe to start the game, also with the New Steam Version. Everything works just fine.

Not sure, haven't tried it. I've noticed that it's rather buggy to get into a Blitzkrieg game, you have to get some errors in a specific way, lol.

For example first it should say you were invited to a game, but can't join it - after you've got that message and you try again - only then can you actually get into the game.

Just played a 3vs3 and it's working nicely :)

This is for users that already have it installed but in their old Company of Heroes folder, why bother re-installing it when you can simply move it?

You're missing the point... Those steps I mentioned above explains how to move Blitzkrieg from the old Company of Heroes to the new one, without having to re-download and re-install all of the patches. It saves quite a lot of time if you ask me.

Don't worry mate, it happens - especially when English isn't you native language. :)

I know this was posted several months ago, but I'm trying to install the BK mod for my new steam version of CoH and Opposing fronts. I went to Steam/steamapps/common/company of heroes, but there is no folder or file called "Company of Heroes Relaunch anywhere on my computer. What do I do?

Am afraid I can't help you on that, gave up with Company of Heroes after I discovered Men of War :P

It's possible that they have changed what the folders look like by now, so try to install it as per original instruction and see if that works. :)

Hey Guys, i installed the mod and made the suggested adjustments, but it won't even launch the game. Nothing happens, i can run the regular coh, but not the mod. Any ideas?
