I pulled the trigger and bought this off STEAM. The first problem that occurred was that STEAM said that I couldn't install the game on C:\ since I already had a STEAM directory there (in C:\Program Files (x86)). I installed it on another drive instead. I guess you can just copy the folder back to the C drive if it has to be there?
Another thing. I only see Burning Horizon and Rolling Thunder, no Iron Division in the Anthology folder.
I may be able to lend a hand with the testing. Is there a special day we are talking about?
We need more people to join our IRC channel. It's excellent for setting up matches.
Join #nival.blitzkrieg at quakenet.org with your preffered client or,
You can find the missions from "Iron Division" either as "custom chapters" or as "custom missions" in your "Blitzkrieg Anthology: Burning Horizon - Rolling Thunder" installation.
"Custom chapters" :
"Custom missions" :
Carthage 1943 I + II
Tank School: Lesson I - IV
The multiplayermaps which are included in "Blitzkrieg Anthology: Iron Division" are for the multiplayer part of "Blitzkrieg Anthology: BH - RT".
To play these maps you have to start the "Blitzkrieg Anthology: BH - RT" - multiplayer.
Please perform the following steps to install the game:
1. Insert the "Blitzkrieg Anthology: Iron Division" - CD into your CD
2. If your CD ROM drive's Autoplay function is enabled,
the installation will begin automatically.
If the automatic installation program does not start,
launch the program by double-clicking the Setup.exe
file in the root directory of the Blitzkrieg: Iron Division CD ROM.
3. Follow the on-screen instructions of the
4. Start the game either by using the "Blitzkrieg Anthology: BH-RT" link in
your start menue or double clicking the desktop icon
"Blitzkrieg Anthology - BH-RT".
Now select "New Game" -> "Custom Game" -> "Custom Chapters" or "Custom Missions"
5. Enjoy playing "Blitzkrieg Anthology: Iron Division"!
You should note that the instructions have not been updated as they refer to the BH-RT Folder. STEAM has these add-ons separated for some reason. I will inquire about this installation on Monday.
I suggest creating Shortcuts for the Desktop or Quick Launch Menu for Blitzkrieg and Rolling Thunder.
The Burning Horizon and Rolling Thunder Menu Interfaces in the STEAM Version will be slightly different than the Original Anthology Version. To access the Burning Horizon Maps in Rolling Thunder.... simply copy them to the Rolling Thunder Map Folder.
About the Rommel Campaign: I have not tried to test the Rommel Campaign in STEAM. I am not sure if it will run under Rolling Thunder without any Changes. I know that some members have worked on this before so perhaps they can explain anything they encountered or the steps they took to make it work.
Rocko... log into the MP Server from Blitzkrieg... you should see Captain online. Please advise if you can access the MP Maps in your current installation. I will try to track you if I am still online. My Work System is not setup to Play, but I can still check the Server and open a Chat Link.
I was tracking 'ElPresidente' earlier, but didn't answer his ping.... sorry about that... I just missed you friend.
Hello, when and where will The Final Patch Version for BK Anthology 1.3.1 Multiplayer be available? What happened with the testings, and Major pain´s predictions of the new era of the game by Jan 2015? I´m checking the updates here from time to time but see only silence.. Where are you guys stuck?

installed BK again after many years but no one online (openSpy). Anyone still playing or is it dead? From where can i get the BK Anthology 1.3.1 Multiplayer Patch? Installed my game in C:\Users\XXX\Documents\My Games\Nival Interactive\Blitzkrieg, hope that won't cause any problems on Win/ ?! Kind regards.
The BLITZKRIEG I Install Guide.pdf advises the player on the best method to install the game and should be read and followed.
About the Multiplayer Server
During the GameSpy shutdown and later months... we did lose a great number of Multiplayers. Despite our best attempts to avoid this situation, it was bound to happen. We were not allowed to post any kind of message at GameSpy about the work we were doing. I don't know how this would affect GameSpy since they were abandoning games in mass.... but I suspect sour grapes on behalf of the Moderators at GameSpy had much to do with it.
However, we have watched as there are many Multi Players are finding their way to the Patch and Server. We are still tracking around 40 original log-ins per day.
We continue to study why some Players cannot see anyone else in the Server. I suspect, this is due to the Installation Path.
One other aspect to this is a slight differences in the STEAM Anthology Version. We believe the latest Work-Around solves this issue... mentioned in the Install Guide.
Good luck and please report issues...
As for my prediction of a new game era... well that is underway and ongoing...
The final BETA Testing will not be until later this year. I would have to go back a read what I posted in Blitzkrieg I: Generation II, but the total release is not expected until 2016, if no unknown issues derail the timeline.
I have not discussed much lately since my time has been split between several projects. But virtually all of my latest models are designed around GEN II, with BK I full support and backward compatibility.
So watch the Blitzkrieg I: Generation II topic for news...
Hello there Rf-Serb here , so you all came to serbian forum after all ahaha .cool. www.rf-front.narod.ru/1938/sostav.html so how to play after 10 years since first blitzkrieg 1.0 then 1.2 patch and all those clans and championchips , i formated my old computer which i used for playing and gave to my parents , and bought new machine with win 8.1 , because i thought multiplayer was done for good i didnt copy and god knows where my instalation disc is or if it even exists... too bad now too late. ill wait for blitz 3 if its any good will try that.
thanks, but no thanks. come to think of it ,i actually played on gamespy with pirate version all the time. besides dollar is gettin expencive, our low paycheckes are already reduced 10% because of government austerity. and i can buy legal crysis3 for that $ here .
A few questions: having done the installation the way is described in the posts above, having applied patch 1.3.1 + Openspy patch v.2 (everything seems to be working), why is the room emtpy, why is the chat empty? I am asking in order to know weather the community has completely vanished or it's a client-sided problem.
Any help is appreciated, I'm an old BKI player who's disappointed in this generation's games and wants to come back.
EDIT: also, some catching up maybe as to what happened these last years (since openspy) would be something being grateful for .

Warlord: Thanks, Stan. Now, are they included in the original mod file? I was checking the entire IUII thread yesterday, but could not find any download links for additional maps.
Aug 6, 2021 16:00:26 GMT 1
Warlord: BTW, it was the subject that caught my attention with this maps; IMHO, they were both passable both visually and in terms of gameplay, but you designer/mappers are way more experienced than me when it comes to Quality Control

kaoz: Warlord: the IUII mod is undergoing a major update for which i'm still going through all the MP units. The last IUII version has an error in it which is why i haven't uploaded it. However, i don't believe there're late war maps in it (yet).
Aug 6, 2021 21:41:16 GMT 1
Stanenberg: They are in included in the Mod file I have (from Mats folder). Concering the quality, on the second map for example, the entire terrain is covered by one of the preset fields in the map editor.

Warlord: Lads, hope I'm not pressing a wrong key here, but can someone help me contact Leon? I just sent him an email using an address he posted on the R6 folder of the East Africa Mod, but seems to be unavailable.

Kevin: If I am not mistaken Leon is sadly not anymore among us, Warlord.

Squire James: I thought the same but I wasn't sure if my memory was correct
Aug 14, 2021 16:56:26 GMT 1
Warlord: Thank you both, lads.

vonosten: Leon died a long time ago. As did other great members of this community. They are still missed, and I hope their contributions will live on for a long time!
