When you put in your codes you will get 4 new games added to your game library (if you have bought it on steam it will automatically add the new steam version), just download the new steam version, if you have the Opposing Fronts Expansion and the Tales of Valor one, they will be counted as DLCs to the game, you can check them by right clicking the game and pressing properties, then going to the DLC section. Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts CD Key? A few months ago I uninstalled Company of Heroes: OF to make room for newer games I had bought at the time. Anyways, I felt like playing it again, so I reinstalled.

A sectors control points allow you to take control of a sector, which in turn allows you to receive more Manpower, Munitions, and Fuel.

If one of your sectors is cut off from a clear connection to the rest of your sectors, it won’t generate you resources. So ensure that your sectors are secure at all times! [Back to Top]

Similar to HDR (High Dynamic Range-rendering), Post-Processing allows for a new lighting method to be used in the game.

1.6.24 The game supports DirectX 10, does this mean I'll need Vista and a DX10 video card? (0 comments)

No. Although CoH: Opposing Fronts supports DirectX 10, it does not require it. Using DirectX 10 will just give you better graphics. But as we've seen, Company of Heroes looks absolutely fantastic in DirectX 9! [Back to Top]

1.6.25 What is this new copyright protection system? (0 comments)

Relic has introduced several new CD key changes in Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts to help combat piracy. Below are some important points about the new changes:

There is no limit to how many times you can install the game. CD keys can only be transferred 3 times. You don't need the disc to play if you have an active internet connection. If you don't, you'll need the disc. People who buy copies of the game used can reclaim the CD key to ensure they're not being ripped off. Your Relic Online account stores what products you have access to. This makes it very, very important that you don't forget your password, or you'll have to go through THQ's customer service! You can contact customer support to reset your RO password, or get a new key if you disabled your by transferring it too much. You can install the game on multiple computers, but you can only run it on one PC at a time.[Back to Top]

1.6.26 I have an AMD dual core processor, and my performance isn't what I'd expect it to be. (0 comments)

Please make sure you have the AMD dual core processor optimizer installed. If you do not, it is available for download here. [Back to Top]

1.6.27 What is environmental reverb? (1 comment)

Using convolution reverb, environmental reverb will give you better and more realistic sound. However, this comes at the trade-off of requiring more hardware power than standard audio. As a result, users with single-core CPUs (or Pentium D processors) and onboard sound will not be able to use this feature. [Back to Top]

1.6.28 I get an error saying I don't have enough virtual memory. (0 comments)

Company of Heroes requires at least 768MB of virtual memory. To set this amount, go to your computer's Control Panel, open the System icon, and select the Advanced tab. From here, go to the Performance box, hit the tab that says Advanced, and select 'Change' in the Virtual Memory box. From here, you should set Windows to manage your virtual memory. [Back to Top]

1.6.31 How do I unlock my framerate? (2 comments)

If your framerate is capped at 60 frames per second for any reason (such as playing in DirectX 10 mode), you can uncap it by adding -novsync to your target line. To do this, select your Company of Heroes shortcut, right click and select properties. From there, add -novsync on the end of the path in the Target line. On a normal install, it will look like this: “C:Program FilesTHQCompany of HeroesRelicCOH.exe” -novsync. While this will uncap your framerate, it may cause visible tearing in-game. Try it and see if you prefer with it on or off. [Back to Top]

1.8.2 Okay, I want to start a map. What now? (1 comment)

First, read the Relic Wiki. It contains a wealth of extremely useful CoH modding information, and it'll make your life a lot easier.

Second, plan out what kind of map you want in your head. The type of setting you want (urban, rural) and amount of players you plan to have the map support should both affect your design. You'll need to take into account features such as the environment, building/bridge placement, munition points, and more. If you want to have a balanced and competitive map, you're going to need to put a lot of thought into every aspect of its design! [Back to Top]

1.8.3 What should my Out of Bounds (OOB) area be? (1 comment)

The OOB area on your map should be at least 256 m larger than the actual playable area, and must be added when you create the map. This ensures that the edges of your map aren't visible, which allows you to give the appearance of an actual landscape. So if you're planning a map with 256 m of playable area, set the size to 512.

1.8.4 How can I save my map? (0 comments)
