PostPosted: Sat Nov 06, 2021 1:38 am Post subject: CoI - Getting Mods to Work Reply with quote

Hello I'm a longtime fan of Cross of Iron and was sorely disappointed to find out they broke mod installations for this game. Neither steam or GOG versions work by default. So to save yourself from having to slowly download a pirated version from 10 years ago which possibly has a virus you can can execute the following two processes to use mods on Cross of Iron:

PROCESS #1 for GOG (even though I own COI on steam too I cant see a way to revert to the previous game version necessary.)


1) Using GOG Galaxy 2.0 navigate to Cross of Iron in the app
2) Select the little button on the upper right with two white plugs
3) Choose "Manage Installation" from the drop down menu which appears
4) Click on configure
5) Uncheck automatically update
6) Select the 3.61.00a version of the game from 4 years ago
7) Wait for the update process to end

*** Note you may need to uninstall the game completely, then install it again and update using the above steps for this to work

*** Also if you need to install again, make sure you uncheck "update game automatically"

PROCESS #2

1 Download this, extract into a folder if you want (better for organization) http://www.closecombatseries.net/CCS/modules.php?name=Downloads&op=getit&lid=4182
2 Edit the mod.ini file to read the following (look @ the bottom of this post) *** NOTE, put your own games location within that section
3 Right click the modswap ini file
4 Select properties from the dropdown
5 Check the "read only" box and save it
6 Start modswap
7 Install your mod plugin file in .cc3 format
8 Ensure all your mods maps are within the proper directory
9 If you're missing any maps download them from here depending on the alphabetical letter http://www.closecombatseries.net/CCS/modules.php?name=Downloads&cid=158

Hopefully this gets you all on the right path. I probably won't check this post too frequently but hopefully somebody else can help or use this to play their own favourite mods again like I did.

In August of 2004, Zappi, Homba, Bambam887, RedScorpion and MOOXE all pitched
in to create this Close Combat site. I would to thank all the people who have visited and
found this site to thier liking. I hope you had time to check out some of the great Close Combat
mods and our forums. I'd also like to thank all the members of our volunteer staff that have
helped over the years, and all our users that contributed to this site!
