Online compatibility stays the same I guess? I am not into these texture things.

Hi guys,

as some asked for it: Here`s a quickfix for the Sherman sandbag bug:

Download selfextracting *.rar archive:

http://www.blitzkrie...s_quick_fix.exe

 

Exctract into you Blitzkrieg main folder (manually select your path to Blitzkrieg directory). That`s it.

hello Xalibur.

 

I downloaded the archive and installed in the Bk folder

C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\Company of Heroes\Blitzkrieg

but does not work for me. The sherman continue with pink laterals sandbags.

Can you explain me, What am I doing wrong?

Thank you Xalibur

Well mr aamc4 I can answer your question... ( i think this is the reason... I am not %100 sure) the files are in a different language then files you and i use.... so the files will not replace the bugged ones because they do not match the name of the bugged file and the game will not request those files because the game will request the files in your language...

I'll upload a correct version in a few minutes. It won't be a self extracting installer and you can only play with the people who ahve the hotfix. BUt according to our installer guru we should get a hotfix tomorrow or the day after. Can you bear with that?

I guess it would be better to wait for regular 4.6.4.1 then, community is split enough already.

OK, see the first post for an updated hotfix. This one is online compatible and does not require any fiddling with the exe. Just extract the archive into your Company of Heroes main folder and overwrite the BKData.sga

Yes it works.... But not online compatible. Great

Just checked with a guy...who didnt have the quick fix for the shermans. Just release a quickfix patch for all the public, not a selectable barrier, to divide the really scarce community that we are.

Usually the games does not check the Data files for equality, at least that was my knowledge to this point. As we are only replacing Data and not DataAttrib files this should work.

Just checked with my newest replays-yesterdays (sync error) and invited a couple of my friends to my game. Incompatible versions. They all have the newest patch, but not the Sherman quick fix.
