Re: Design & Modding Guides

If there is a way to edit (via the Editor) and replace the .csv back into the live environment I am afraid I do not know how. I can however edit, with success the Specialisation file.

On the other hand, your kind reply appears to suggest that another file(s) are examining the units.csv file?

Re: Design & Modding Guides

Am I able to modify the units.csv file? When I try to do so regarding dates, costs, who owns what and so on, the main game hangs. For clarity, I am not creating a Mod, but rather trying to change the actual games.

Re: Cheat codes

See my post in Scenario etc., but you can alter the MS Excel Specialisms to alter available dates. I have tried to alter the MS Excel Units file, to assign B29 bombers to the Axis - but that is proving problematic.

Re: Reassigning Units and Arrival dates before SP Campaign?

Actually amending the Specialisation Excel sheet appears to work - so far. I have managed to acquire WaffenSS units in 1939 (and other specialities), but although I have adjusted Japan dates, as yet I have not played as Japan with the altered file. The original file is intact and safe.

Modding Unit and Resource MS Excel files

I note that there are number of MS Excel files and other files that can be opened with Notepad in the various Slitherine OoB folders. File permissions apart - can I alter the resources/units eg B29 bombers assigned to the Axis in 1939? Regarding the Excel files, the entries are on a single row acros...

Re: Erik's Campaigns

I played Blitzkrieg 39 - 41, but having scored a 'Draw' before the armistice, I did not get an opportunity to play the England battles? Do I need to something extra in setting up the campaign? Also, given that I cleared all French units and captured all objectives, I cannot understand only achieving...

Re: Custom campaign - Finland in WW 2 (v1.1 released 15.09.2

Thanks for the PM and forum reply. But, I cannot rename the .doc extension file - under WIN10, Word tries to open and fails. If I try to rename the download it becomes 'file.zip.doc and Word once again tries to open. Why could the file not be downloaded as .zip file in the first place? I appreciate ...

Hi Eric - I downloaded SeaLion - but after a few turns it crashed my PC, leaving a background process 'hammering away' taking all resources - could not find via Task Manager. I have (for various other reasons) with Support, completely reinstalled the core plus all my add-ons and will try again short...

Re: Order of Battle has just been updated to version 2.9.8!

Thanks VP - but the convoluted process to install the last updates did not suffer from the same errors and problems although the Laptop setup was exactly the same. Given that the entire process takes some c25 minutes, I am loath to try again unless a robust upgrade process is provided. To be fair Sl...

Re: Unit limit? CP limits? Total game/PC collapse

Happened again re Solomons scenario.

Funny thing, the Laptop crashes, but requires 2 x restarts and then 50% of the time goes back to the ongoing Game.

Total game/PC collapse

I am running Windows10, thus far without any problems and have the latest OoB patches etc. I do use the 'cheat modes' and have recently experienced total PC shutdown (no other programs running). For example I move one unit and the PC/laptop shuts down - it tends to only happen when I move a unit. I ...
