I already have the steam verson installed, with skin-packs and sound-packs. No problem, just install them along-side the original files, not on top of them.

So, basically this means that everything will be reset to zero and everyones account will be there Steam-account? This means cheaters will be banned permanantly since its there Steam-account? Am I getting this right?


it says "you’ll be able to download this full version, make a new account and start playing."
YES ! YES ! it really looks like you are back to "zero" and if they only allow one account!? its "good bye" for the whole smurf community :banana:

Ahh shit we have got to redownload the whole game with all the patches aswell again? Last time that occured I had to space it over 2 months just because my download limit :(

Edit: Oh wait server change on May 7th. Monthly internet download refreshes on the 10th. This might just work :)

Steam automatically downloads the latest version of the game. No more hours of patching the old way :P

hopes are high, same as worries. The word "port" always scares me in videogames :/

If you have true problems even to download the latest ver, u can try copy ur original COH files to location where Steam's COH will be about to put them..., then start Steam-download. System should replace the files which does not match, but skip those who does... (not sure tho how the Steam-download process works exactly)

I cant understand the COH1 bit , What should we do to keep playing post 8th .Sorry , I am a noob when it comes to tech talk .

1). Post 8th should i just re-download the game and use my retail key . Or is there some thing i am missing .
2). If its a steam account , Can i use my retail version Key , Or should i purchase the game again via steam .

Clarifications would be much appreciated .

I have already activated vCOH on Steam, so I think there won't be much hassle there. You'll need steam, though.

My first, giddily optimistic impression was that this could mean the end of smurfing, drophacks, and NAT errors but after thinking about it further they're very unlikely to touch anything at that level

I'll still hope though

a port of COH1 to Steam, with as many of the original online features working on the new platform as possible

It will be super interesting, so see what "many" features means. Sounds like it is not going to be exactly the same.
Exciting.

I had a chat with Quinn and while I can't specifically mention what we talked about I can tell you that their mid-term plan is to evaluate the possibility (that is quite concrete from his words) to add some of the COH2 new features into COH1. The first impact with this transition to Steamworks could indeed mean less features at the start (he didn't know himself exactly which features may be disabled/changed on April 8th, they are still figuring it out with Smoking Gun Interactive).

As soon as they have an official statement tho they'll let us know :)
