CheatCommands Mod, version 1.26 NOTE: This version of the CheatCommands Mod will most likely be only available and updated for as long as -dev command line parameter support is enabled again. NOTE! DO not use grid keys. Use classic keys instead to use this mod. Using grid keys disables all hotkeys assigned to abilities, which are calling CheatCommands mod functions.
Thanks to Corsix's hack to allow loading unsigned SGAs, it is possible to run SGA based mods.
CheatCommands Mod LE is pretty much the same as it's precursor but with fewer features. While Scar_DebugConsoleExecute is disabled without -dev mode, using abilities with custom hotkeys is the only way to achieve hotkey to scar function call binding. Edit: This used to be the case. This version has even more features than Beta version.
CheatCommands Mod is not a cheat or a hack to gain advantage in multiplayer. It is a debugging tool which can be used for, but not limited to:
- taking clean screenshots (Press Control + F2 to toggle Game UI On/Off, Control + F11 to toggle Prompt On/Off)
- testing and learning units and game mechanics
- reproducing events for debugging (for example reproducing an event causing a bug/glitch)
- single player cheating
This mod will not work in multiplayer, as it relates to cursor position and other client side features which will result a sync error.
General Knowledge/What to do if: I get prompted with a fatal scar error:
Hit pause to unpause the game and continue execution. In most of the cases the error will be skipped and you will be able to continue playing.
If you run up into a fatal scar error, please report it by doing the following: Write down what you did exactly to produce the error and post your warnings.log here. Warnings.log can be found in C:\Users\Omistaja\Documents\My Games\Company of Heroes 2 . Open it with notepad and copy and paste the contents of the file between code tags in your post.
In case you are a new member and unable to use code tags, you can also email the report to firstname.lastname@example.org My UI is messed up:
Either you are somehow using my Beta version of CheatCommands mod or there has been a patch changing UI and I haven't updated CheatCommands Mod to support it. You should report the latter case. I have an idea/a concept for the mod:
Let me know. Perhaps I'm able to implement it. I would like to use this mod as a part of my public mod:
Give me credit and you are good to go. I lost data/I got my Case Blue progress wiped/etc:
You use CheatCommands mod at your own risk. Although there has been only once CheatCommands Mod actually caused harm which was wiping Case Blue DLC progress due to CheatCommands mod not loading Case Blue data to the game at all, I cannot give promises. There may be loss of data, most likely in form of SP/Coop/TOW progress data.

drChengele: They could go places with a persistent campaign map, to be sure. New, exciting places. As it stands it will just be an extra screen displaying colors on a map of Europe with maybe some warspoils. Shame. Today, 11:11 AM
