Here is the prelim hotpatch: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8dWXaQoA5IZQUpQYS0wMWFGelk/view?usp=sharing

Everything I have tested is working, but I have not tested everything. In particular, I am unable to test the 25lb in a sim environment. Which means we will need launcher testing for the 25lb. So, if everyone can do a bit of testing, that would be great. Just post in this thread what you test. Again, I've already made the tutorial on how to test.

I would also say to try some public "beta" testing. This would be the same procedure we usually use for 1v1 testing in launcher, but applying it to 2v2/3v3/4v4. I'm pretty sure if you ask people before a match to help test out new (coughfixed) content, they'll be happy to help.

Send me a quick note to unlock lower unlocks in the launcher if you do do some public testing.

The dev team is currently down to about 1.5 coders, so, in order to help expediate patch release, we'd like to ask you guys to help test out the new hotpatch for release. This patch should cover all the lower unlocks and ui exchanges as well as disabling all free doctrine abilties (88 arty, tank auras etc).

The procedure is fairly simple.

1. Download prelim patch from above link
2. Start and launch game as normal from launcher
3. Close CoH.
4. Copy paste the downloaded files into the archives folder in your europeinruins directory.
5. Manually launch EIRR without the launcher ( done by adding '-mod europeinruins' to your CoH shortcut)
6. This must be done by every player in the room. Play the match.

Two things that will not appear in this beta patch are jumbo HE shells and Airdropping engineers. Both work, but to prevent causing scar/broken units for people not using the beta patch, they have not been implemented in the SQL.

Otherwise, all lower unlocks in the launcher should now be available for purchase and functional. If you notice anything awry in the launcher, find and ask aeroblade to adjust it. If it is Monday or laters, you can track me down as well.

not to be impathient but cant you just release the patch?
nobody is playing because they are waiting for a patch and you cant find people to play the beta patch because people are waiting for the patch, so could you please just throw the patch in?

That statement is erroneous.
