Beyond the Call of Duty – Mission Pack

Welcome, Officer! On this website you can download my custom mission pack for the 1999 released Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty. This pack includes 6 new missions, sending you to various fictitious locations in Germany, 1943.

I’ve started working on the mission pack after it came to my attention, that various fan-made modding tools had been released in recent years, which allow the creation of new content for Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines and Beyond the Call of Duty. As I am a huge fan of the games, I simply had to craft my own material with them – there really was no other choice. All missions were created between May 2012 to May 2013, and are assembled mainly from original art assets.

If you do not own the game, you can get it over at the boys and girls from GOG for just a few bucks. It is worth it! (No, I do not get money for the advertisment.)

Download & Installation

STEP ONE: Run the Mission Pack Installer and chose your Commandos: BCD game path (usually the “coman_mp” folder, but not necessarily). The installer will extract the “war_mp.dir” file and then patch the “MISIONES.DAT” in “DATOS\MISIONES\”. The new missions will always be played first if you start a new game. If you have finished them, the game will continue with the next available mission, which is usually the main games content.

STEP TWO: Use the Resolution-Hack and play the game in a higher resolution! My personal suggestion for widescreen users: 1280x720px

Tips & Tricks

If you feel that the mission pack is too hard for you, consider the following tips:

  • Save early and save often.
  • CTRL+S is quicksave, CTRL+L is quickload.
  • Use available items like cigaretes and stones to lure guards.
  • The ability to control enemy soldiers is very useful every once in a while.
  • Timing is important. Wait for soldiers to be in a good position before you strike.
  • Be creative and try to combine your Commandos’ abilities.
  • Don’t forget to save your progress!

      I can’t make it easier than it already is. Download the setup, run it, point to your BCD installation folder and install the mod. Then you start it with the normal Coman_mp.exe file. That’s it. If this doesn’t work for you, then you’ll have to provide more information on the problem you have.

    Hallo,
    in Mission “A quiet day” erscheint der Zugführer von Anfang an nicht. Es wurde kein Alarm ausgelöst. Müssen bestimmte Vorraussetzungen erfüllt sein bzw. irgendwelche Ziele erfüllt werden, damit er erscheint?

    • Lexx says:

      Muss definitiv da sein. Bewegt sich allerdings umher und verschwinder ab und an im Haus, kommt kurze Zeit später aber wieder heraus, wenn kein Alarm ausgelöst wurde.

    Hello
    I have problem with version 2.149. I cant install her. I have BCDMissions_v2.149.exe , when i start, select folder with games, then click install … very quick! i saw ” skipped:… ” , but my folder with games still has the same size…
    WTF ? In my opinion DIrextractor doesnt unpack wir_mp.dir … i dont know why…
    i dont unpack wir_mp.dir in dirextractor manually .. “write: permission denied” …

    When i install version 1.1.2 instalation is good, it takes a little longer, but all is okey.
    It’s worth to play this old version ??
