Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty – Mission Pack

Lexx presents:


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!

  1. Sir I Can’t Play This Missions And I Can’t Understand……
    Please Give Me Any Video As A Tutorial….
    Or Please You Make Simple Installer Just Install And Play…..
    Thanks, I Hope You Reply Me….

    • Lexx says:

      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.

  2. gemma says:

    hello sir,
    I want to ask
    to play the mission pack will I have to install it Commandos bcd first ?

  3. Mimo says:

    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.

  4. W says:

    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 ??

  5. rikuhahl says:

    Train conductor in first bonus mission isnt on the place. Restart mission dont help :/

  6. Xserx says:

    There is no Conductor in that place in Mission “A quiet day” right from the start!!! And walkthrough without alarm doesn’t change anything :((
    I’ve read in comments above it’s seemed to be a common problem?

  7. erol says:

    there no train conductor, I get my own conductor from Sacramento

  8. Mikhail says:

    After installing the modification stopped working Save / Load… What could be the reason?

    • Mikhail says:

      including Quick Save/Load

    • Lexx says:

      Sorry for the hassle. I have punched together a small Hotfix:
      This should fix the Save / Load and also bring back the Conductor. Thanks to Mike_HDF from the Revora forum, he pointed this silly issue out for me (the installer is missing one single file, which I didn’t noticed on my installation…). It should work now after extracting the Hotfix.rar into your Commandos folder.

    Hi! First of all, awesome, awesome job with these custom missions! I love them!

    I have one problem though. The custom missions used to work just well for me. Recently I have reinstalled my Windows (Win 7 Ultimate), same version, same installer as before. Now, when I install the custom missions using BCDMissions_v2.151.exe and I attempt to start the game, it does not start, I get an error instead:
    “The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application”
    If I uninstall the mission pack, the game works again. If I re-install it, it does not work again.
    I’ve tried using 2 different base installations for the original Commandos Call of Duty and installed the mission pack over both of them, no luck, it still won’t run.
    It’s the same hardware, same Windows, same everything as before, when it worked.
    Any idea what I could do to fix it?
    Thank you!

    • Lexx says:

      You might want to try to run the installer with admin rights. Right click it, then run as admin. I’ll guess your problem is related to windows not allowing to extract files from the war_mp.dir.

      • Andras says:

        Thank you Lexx! I think you’re right about what could be the problem. As soon as I install the mission pack, the WAR_MP.dir disappears and I have a WAR_MP.backup instead, but no war_mp.dir. If I uninstall the mission pack, I get back the war_mp.dir. I did run the installer as admin, but the problem remains. Do you have any other suggestion about how to get around this?

        By the way will you make more missions in the future? I can imagine that it’s hard, but your work is awesome.

        Thank you!

        • Lexx says:

          You can manually extract the war_mp.dir file after installing the mod. There should be a “ComDirEx.exe” file in the installation folder. Drag & Drop the “WAR_BACKUP.DIR” on it, then the files will get extracted.

          I might create new missions in the future, but not anytime soon. But truth told, I don’t think modding Commandos is very hard- it’s just very time consuming and includes A LOT tedious labour. You have to do many things by hand, more than once, that’s probably what scares away many people who otherwise would be interested in creating their own content.

          • Andras says:

            Thank you!

            Yes, I did already try manually extracting the WAR_BACKUP.DIR, it seems to do something for a second or two (a black command window pops up briefly). But the error is the same after that.
            Too bad the installer’s log disappears (auto-closes) right after it finishes. Maybe it shows some error in the log, but I can’t see it this way…

          • Andras says:

            I have tried it on another Windows machine, there it worked, so I zipped the whole BTCOD dir and copied it to the machine where it didn’t work. Well, it still does not work with the mission pack. I wish I understood what’s wrong. I’m administrator on both machines. And it’s the same windows installation. Perhaps some runtime or DirectX is different…

          • Lexx says:

            If you copy all files over it, and it still doesn’t work, the problem must be somewhere else. Try to delete the “ddraw.dll” in the main folder and see if the game runs or something changes. It’s just a wild guess, though.

          • Profesor Gutnacht says:

            I tried deleting ddraw.dll, and it doesn’t work.

  11. Andras says:

    Lexx, you’re a freakin’ genius! I deleted ddraw.dll and voila! It works! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, man! My father is also very happy. He also plays Commandos and needless to say he loves your missions most :)

    Did you plan any update for better compatibility with latest Steam Commandos update (

  19. kamchow says:


    fantastic job on creating these missions.
    completed the first six missions.

    am having an issue on the 8th mission: escape flinkenfels.
    the sapper can use the bomb he already has at the start of the mission – to blow up either the hq or the radio tower.
    but after picking up the other bomb in the crate, the sapper is unable to use it.
    whether i press the “B” key or click on the bomb icon, nothing happens.

    is this a bug or am i doing something wrong?
    thank you.

  20. Profesor Gutnacht says:

    Hey, when I tried installing the mod, there is no “misiones” folder in my datos folder.

    • kamchow says:

      may or may not be a silly question – when installing this mod, did you point it to your beyond the call of duty folder (ie where you install the game)?

    • Lexx says:

      You could try to run the installer as admin. That should usually take care of all problems (If the installation folder is correctly set).

  21. Profesor Gutnacht says:

    Error message:
    “This is an international version of Commandos, please use the German version on this computer.”

    • Lexx says:

      Switch your OS language to switzerland or similar. This doesn’t affect your system, and the game will work. (It’s an old trick with the uncensored version that works since release back in 1998).

      • Profesor Gutnacht says:

        Did that, nothing happened.

        • Profesor Gutnacht says:

          Nevermind, I eventually got to run it anyway, but here is the next problem:
          When I try and play the game, I select single player, then I select my difficulty and then nothing happens.

  22. Profesor Gutnacht says:

    So how do I patch the misiones folder?

  23. Profesor Gutnacht says:

    This mod looks so fun, but it just plain doesn’t work. I cannot install this no matter what.
    I install BTCOD, then I install the modpack, it doesn’t work, I reinstall it while running as admin, the files are there but the game doesn’t work.

    • Lexx says:

      Really no idea, sorry. It should work right out of the box after installation. Last time I’ve checked it with the GOG version – it worked without probems. Like I wrote before, you might have to install it as admin, and you might need to switch the OS language to something other than german (if you are using german), but that should be it then. What you could also try is installing the resolution hack over it – Maybe that will do something to help.

  24. Profesor Gutnacht says:

    This download doesn’t work. I tried it on my other Lenovo laptop (OS is Windows 7 Professional) and it had the exact same problems, so it can’t just be me.

  25. Profesor Gutnacht says:

    Okay, so I’d like to apologize for nagging you to death about my game not working out. I eventually figured out how to install the mod (running the file I installed as admin) into my coman_mp folder.
    My problem was that I wasn’t running the game in the appropriate compatibility mode. Upon switching it to windows 95 the save games work and so does the mod. Great job on it.

  26. zlayer says:

    Thanks for the mod,

    The thing i want to ask is that I have mouse lag problem in BEL and BCD, however i realized that your mod works smooth, is it related to some dll files you use in your mod or do you have any other solution which i can try, thanks.

  27. Gábor says:

    Hi guys,

    I have a problem on mission 4. When I destroy the ammo depot and the Karl Gerate and I try to leave the area,i get this message : You didn’t destroy all the targets. And i cannot move to the next mission. The bombs are on the targets they blow away but something is wrong. Any idea ? Thx for helping

  28. Alex says:

    Thanks!!!!!!! Awesome missions, as good as the original ones, great!!

  29. maziyar says:

    Where is the problem ؟

  30. alejandrin1991 says:

    hola descarge el juego pero no me aparecio el archivo war_mp.dir como hago ahora? uso windows 7 en la netbook gracias

    • Lexx says:

      Hola, the file should be in your Commandos Beyond the Call of Duty main folder. If it’s not there, then something went wrong with the installation of the vanilla game.

  31. jean lima says:

    Bro. Gotta say man…THIS mod is absolutely awesome…’ve done so much for everyone that loves commandos…TY SO MUCH…

  32. Romeez says:

    I install the game correctly but when i run the game the error message come ‘CADENA DESCONOCIDA’.
    Please help me i want to play this game.

    • Lexx says:

      Sorry, I’ve never seen this happening. Are you using the GOG or Steam version of the game? I’ve only tested with the GOG version– I don’t know if the Steam version is compatible.

      • Romeez says:

        Now the error message is showing you need directx …..
        Do you have any other source to download this game plz lexx sir i want to play this game……

  33. Romeez says:

    I install this game from the setup ‘Mission Pack v2.151 – Installer (Mirror: ModDB)’

  34. Adeel says:

    Can i install the game from the above setup mission pack 2.151 installer ?????
    After installation can i download the mission pack ????

    • Lexx says:

      You have to install Commandos Beyond the Call of Duty first. Then you can install the Mission Pack with its installer. My mission pack is not a stand alone version, it requires the base game.

  35. Adeel says:

    When i launch the game it comes back with error ‘directx installation error’

    • Lexx says:

      Does the game work without the mod installed? Because I honestly can’t see how the mod should produce a directx installation error.
