Re: Cheat code not working, help needed!!

Aha! So I was on the right track; apparently there is a mechanism whereby you cannot just move (or replicate) the DLC at will from one machine to another. It's got to be uninstalled from the old machine and reinstalled on the new one somehow. I'm glad it worked out for you. Now, get ready for Endsie...

Re: Cheat code not working, help needed!!

I don't use Steam so I cannot comment on whether there is a problem with that. However, I can offer two ideas: 1) First, I just learned recently that #gimmeall does not work with custom campaigns, just official DLC. However, that appears to be not your problem so . . . 2) This is my best guess: When...

Re: Order of Battle: Endsieg Units Preview

Wow that's impressive. The Germans were masters of invention. I wonder had the war continued a few more years, they would have created internet and Twitter for faster battlefield communications. As far as I know, one of the reasons why the United States enjoyed its ensuing 50 years or so of world p...

Re: Order of Battle: Endsieg Units Preview

We can rename units right? I want to rename the railway gun to Anzio Annie. That's always been the case so I don't see why not. Say, how about a scenario with an army of Anzio Annie's versus a force of Atombombers? The ultimate smack-down! :) [Not really, says my rational scenario-designing self. S...

Now I'm feeling very curious about what the counterattacks are supposed to seize from the player: your flag, captives for intel or maybe your rations?
Heh, you're overthinking that one. The wording should be "Counter attacks launched from the peninsula will cease," not "seize."

Re: Order of Battle - 6.1.9

bru, what kind of changes to do you make to the campaigns? I'm finding the game very challenging to finish on time as it is. Are you making it harder or easier? Do you change supply & numbers of units ingame? Only a few things, here and there, do I change about the basic workings of the scenarios a...

Re: Order of Battle - 6.1.9

You mod the game only for your own campaign? Or you are helping the devs upgrade the game? Maybe they want your upgraded version. Only for myself. If you share the results, can be that nobody anymore would want to buy the official campaign :wink: That's why I cannot. I may dump on those folks occas...

Re: Order of Battle - 6.1.9

That's not unusual. I've seen a lot of people who like modding and making user-made scenarios even more than playing the game. What battle are you making? I've been redesigning the DLC. Nothing major; the basics remain the same. Just tidying up, ensuring everything works as the designers intended, ...

Have you played the Sandstorm DLC yet? No, not yet, although I hear Sandstorm is good. I've been spending the last few months redeveloping some things to suit my tastes. It's funny; I have as much fun designing as playing this game! When I'm done with my project, which will be a few months more, th...

Re: Units You Never Buy

You guys mentioned my top bugaboo: submarines. My other one is strategic bombers. I do want to use these for a well-rounded attack but usually resources are tight and these fall by the wayside.

I tried playing OOB again after a year or two of never touching it cause of problems on the forum. The upgrades have made the game very good and I like the introduction movie. I picked up the DLCs I missed and will get back into playing this game. I was surprised by the gigantic sizes of the last t...

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

Thanks Bru. I tried to mark yellow obtangle in triggers Pump-3 and Pump-2, then I replaced original folder in campaign folder by this new one --- and it works :-) Yes, that would work but is not the proper fix. Got a minute? I'll tell you why. :) When Erik closed out the AI alliance to which he had...

Bear in mind that Herr Bolter is designated Waffen SS in this scenario: Screenshot 1.jpg This means...

Re: Order of Battle: Endsieg out on November 13th

I am aware of the debate on historical accuracy, and I value it of course, but I am glad to see that there is a bit of alternative history built in here. Hopefully it is plausible; that is my only criterion. As I have said elsewhere, a preordained rehashing of history would be boring indeed. In the ...
