How do you spend your time in OOB?

Hello, Just out of curiosity, how do you spend your time in OOB? I have no doubt that most people in this forum play the game very often. What do you do in the game? Do you mainly play campaigns? Do you replay them several times? Do you spend most of your playtime actually modding (making campaigns ...

Re: 20 years of thank you!

Thanks for your work! I discovered "serious" strategy games because of my love for Advance Wars, a Nintendo game, and because of my longing for a new game in this series, but Matrix/Slitherine games scratched that itch and more, with games such as Order of Battle, Panzer Corps, and even more hardcor...

Re: Point of Special forces?

I wish I could answer this question. I think if the scenario is not designed with them in mind, these units are mostly useless, or only good for lightly harassing enemy units. Unfortunately, I have yet to encounter a campaign map where they could really shine. Didn't play all the DLCs though!

Re: The PzC 2 storm is finally here.

Honnestly there are now 2 "big" operational-level games with beer-and-pretzels gameplay and I just find it so surprising and enjoyable that we're at that point, despite strategy games being somewhat niche. Maybe in five years there'll be 3 or 4 and there will be even more threads like this one here ...

Re: The PzC 2 storm is finally here.

Yes I agree that "the ultimate World War II strategy game" is a bit of a weird claim for PzC2. It doesn't even have anything related to the Pacific. With all its campaigns, OoB would qualify better for that title. But hey, that's marketing towards casual for you. As for PzC2, my PC, which is already...

Re: Countdown HYPE: 0

Maybe the current events have delayed the process allowing for the game to be downloadable or something :( Maybe someone who had to tick something somewhere couldn't come to work or some other thing

Screwed, that's the word :) Nah I'm on a regular PC, but I don't want to go through the hassle of opening it and tinker with the components. I'll just find a way for sure

Re: Question on System Specs?

You can buy 8 gigs of DDR3 RAM for $30-$40 and it's very easy to install even if you have no experience at all.
That's what I would do... but I'm on a laptop. Anyway, I'll find a way to play PzC2!

Re: Question on System Specs?

Graphics: nVidia or AMD, 2GB VRAM
That should do the trick for most people, I think. But 8g memory at the *minimum* is starting to be harder. 8g memory is, I would say, slightly above average for people not used to play very demanding games.

Changing the game files (images, txt, etc)

Hello, For those who have had the chance to play the game on their PCs, do you know if it will be possible to change the game files (like, change the terrain textures, the UI images, the txt files for modding, etc, like in Panzer Corps 1)? Basically will all the gamefiles be encrypted in .res or wha...

Re: Morning Sun - Wuhan

There's a music in Hearts of Iron 4 called Battle of Wuhan that I listen to often. It was pretty eerie for me when the Wuhan epidemic started to be everywhere in the news.

Re: Panzer Corps 2 Has Dynamic AI - Allegedly

If I'm not mistaken PzC1 also has dynamic/unscripted AI. Make up a quick random scenario with two opposing sides, without any scripting whatsoever, and the AI will make moves. Of course for more elaborate scenarios scripting is also available.

Re: I still don't like the way PzC 2 looks.

If the team will learn from the last 3d War-gaming games released in teh last let's say 2 years I don't know of many 3D operational-level strategy games released in the last two years though. Strategic Mind and Panzer Strategy come to mind, but apart from that, I don't see any "big" games OoB devel...

Re: I still don't like the way PzC 2 looks.

I'm surprised to see such a thread on this forum! I didn't think PzC2 would get disliked so fast here in OoB territories. I know the two games will soon be in competition with each other, but still. OOB's presentation is one my favorite points too. Even if strategy games are not meant to be visually...

Re: FUTURE of ORDER OF BATTLE

So I ask you: what do you think is it possible to implement the legendary PzC mod Battlefield on OOB? I mean technically. The map is quite big in the Battlefield mod, but technically, from a purely game mechanics standpoint, barring any potential technical limitations (due to the mapsize and number...
