How to Play Company of Heroes Anthology Without CD
Company of Heroes Anthology is a compilation of three real-time strategy games: Company of Heroes, Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, and Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor. The games are set in World War II and feature realistic graphics, dynamic environments, and tactical gameplay.
If you own the retail DVD version of the anthology, you may need to insert the disc every time you want to play the games. This can be inconvenient and may cause damage to your disc over time. However, there is a way to play the games without the CD, by using a No-CD patch or a fixed image file.
A No-CD patch is a modified executable file that bypasses the CD check and allows you to run the game without inserting the disc. A fixed image file is a copy of the disc content that you can mount on a virtual drive and trick the game into thinking that you have the disc inserted.
Before you use any of these methods, make sure you have updated your game to the latest version. You can find the official patches on the GameCopyWorld website[^1^]. You also need to have a valid serial number for each game in order to activate them online.
To use a No-CD patch, you need to download the appropriate file for your game version and language from GameCopyWorld [^1^] or GameCopyWorld [^2^]. Then, you need to replace the original executable file in your game folder with the patched one. Make sure you backup the original file before doing so. You can find the game folder in C:\\Program Files (x86)\\THQ\\Company of Heroes by default.
To use a fixed image file, you need to download the appropriate file for your game version and language from GameCopyWorld [^1^] or GameCopyWorld [^2^]. Then, you need to mount the image file on a virtual drive using a software like Daemon Tools or PowerISO. You can find instructions on how to do that on the GameCopyWorld website[^3^]. After mounting the image file, you can run the game as usual.
Note that using these methods may violate the terms of service of the game and may result in online bans or legal actions. Use them at your own risk and only if you own a legitimate copy of the game. We do not condone piracy or illegal distribution of software.
If you want to enjoy the games to the fullest, you may also want to learn some gameplay tips and strategies. Each game has different factions, units, abilities, and maps that require different tactics and skills. You can find many guides, tutorials, and videos online that can help you improve your game.
For example, you can watch a gameplay video from the Company of Heroes Anthology set, with maximum graphics settings in 1080p HD on YouTube[^1^]. The video shows how to play as the Wehrmacht (Germany) faction and demonstrates some basic concepts such as base building, resource management, unit control, and combat tactics.
You can also visit the GameReplays.org website[^2^], which is a community of Company of Heroes players and fans. There you can find forums dedicated to different aspects of the game, such as mentoring, strategies for each faction, team strategies, general strategies, tips of the week, and operations, mods and campaign strategies. You can also download replays of matches and watch them with the game client.
By learning from other players and practicing your skills, you can become a better commander and have more fun with the Company of Heroes Anthology. Whether you prefer single-player or multiplayer mode, there is always something new to discover and enjoy in this epic series of games. 061ffe29dd
