The latest version of Heat of Battle, a Call of Duty modification has been released.
This is the full installation, and does not require the installation of v.20.
Simply run the executable and the following will be installed:
()- zzz-hob0.pk3 - Menu Graphics and music Pak
()- zzz-hob1.pk3 - Gametype and game essentials Pak
()- zzz-hob2.pk3 - Map Pak
()- ReadMe.txt - What you're reading
()- HoBOnline.url - Link to http://hob.mikesmarauders.com
***DO NOT RUN "+fs_game hob" in your command line and do not load the mod before you connect to game servers. Just connect to game servers as you would any other regular CoD game server. If you load the mod from the mod menu or run fs_game before you connect then you will see CD-Key authentication issues. This is a CoD bug that is supposed to be addressed in the next patch.***
The scr_sd_roundlength defaults to 4 minutes. Until we remove/alter roundlimiting you may want to set scr_sd_roundlength to 60 in the console. The maximum of 10 minutes has been changed to 60 for the time being.
For server set-up and install help.
