Thanks everyone hope the downloads go smooth for you!

Quick question... should I delete the old version?

That's entirely up to you and your disk space, and mod folder names. By default the previous version was in a folder called @I44, the mod folder by default for this version is @I44CO, so should you want to have both versions installed you can. I just wouldn't try loading them together at the same time...

Jman from Kelly's Heroes has kindly also set up a public server for the weekend, hope to catch some of you there!

Some feedback.

Many of the missions could do with an overview and they have no reason to include underscores in their names. You might want to check the missions with -showScriptErrors, because they're showing all kinds of scripting errors. The lack of autosaves after lengthy opening scenes is frustrating.

The custom weapon animations are nice but they come with the cost of your guy completely freezing up if he reloads certain weapons (at least Springfield, Kar98, Garand and Bren). The Commando Soldier (Sten MkV) actually has Sten Mk.II, so you might want to double check the unit loadouts, too. Germans being part mute and part speaking Russian is a bit of an immersion breaker.

There is no mention how to make the user interface work in order to make foxholes and attach bayonets.

Yeah didn't get time to make those tutorial videos yet, just hit your windows key (left or right) to bring up the interface. The left icon is for the construction menu, foxholes that anyone can build, while the sandbags and hedgehogs require you to be an engineer/pioneer to be allowed to build them. The top icon opens up weapon options, for attaching and removing your bayonet, and to open the weapon resting configuration screen if you want to change it from defaults. Excuse the quick and dirty explanation!

I found an issue (not sure if it's my fault for some reason)

I cannot reload the Bren when I am proned. When I'm proned the reload animation doesn't play, it never gives me the next clip and I am stuck until I change weapons.

It works fine when I'm kneeling or standing though.

Ok, found it. When I switch fire mode after attaching the bayonet, an error message shows and I'm then unable to use the bayonet anymore. The help in the bottom right also gives an error message. I'm not sure what the bayonet charge mode changes other than the running style?

The bayonet doesn't seem to have an effect on BLUFOR units.
