Re: Victory or Death! Order of Battle: Endsieg is out!

Out of interest, are there any changes to the base game that came along with the release of with Endsieg? Balance, resources, Unity version, etc..

Re: Main screen

Yea cheers for that. Sends shivers, looks almost a modern tank, especially the rear mounted gun version, looks like a Gulf War US Mob Arty piece. If this war had gone on another year.....

Re: Main screen

I do not think that it is absolutely necessary to have a resolution 2048 x1152. The images of my previous post had a resolution 1920 x 1080. It is the usual resolution of my screen. What is important it is to have the good size with the height and the width, the game engine should resize the image ...

Re: Us Pacific Campaign Where are the carriers?

A little confused here (nothing unusual :)) does this discussion relate to Erik's 'US Naval Campaign (1941-46)' ?


cheers.

Tips for new and old players alike - turn your game around if you're having problems!

Hi folks, These are not my tips & suggestions, they are those of fellow players that I have compiled as I was having terrible problems when I increased my difficulty challenge to level 3 from level 2 (default) and couldn't win a battle! I was in despair, considering giving OoB a 'lengthy break' but ...

Re: Just sharing: why I haven't played one of my favourite games for months...

Does anyone else think these tips are useful? It certainly turned my game around when I upgraded a level from regular and depressing defeat to a decent amount of success. As a veteran player I've been frankly gobsmacked how by applying these (broadly) 6 principles my game has turned around. Maybe my...

Re: Just sharing: why I haven't played one of my favourite games for months...

Hi folks, I just want to send out a big thank you to this amazingly helpful community. The tips I've received, some I was aware off, some will be obvious to many, have nevertheless proved to be indispensable. I've played OoB for years but managed to get bogged down and frustrated of late having uppe...

Re: Just sharing: why I haven't played one of my favourite games for months...

Hehe ;) As a general point - in my experience it is easy to overextend and leave own units in vulnerable positions. So when advancing/attacking it's worth to consider where it leaves you afterwards, and how exposed you are to the enemy when it's the AI's turn. You might have noticed the AI is keen ...

Ppl who are struggling can change the difficulty before each scn in a cam, so could temporarily go up or down for any individual scn.
Never! ;)

Re: Just sharing: why I haven't played one of my favourite games for months...

Is it not better to show someone the right way to do something than embarrass someone by posting the wrong way then taking it apart? That depends on the individual. Some learn better on their own, some do better with "coaches"... Anyway, it's entirely optional, but I would hope someone who's doing ...

i think most new players don't use AT units as "cover". It could be usefuf to see a red range of cover when we put the mouse on it.
I think that's a great idea / reminder / hint

Re: Just sharing: why I haven't played one of my favourite games for months...

Maybe someone could record a difficulty level 3 game with victory and post it? Perhaps the method(s) for success at 3 and above is one of those things you have to actually see, go get the light bulb moment? Maybe do the opposite and post one of yours so we can analyze and criticize... (...and help ...

Re: best way to counter superior tanks?

Recovering from low unit efficiency is a problem for me. :) The problem with withdrawing a unit to the rear, dropping it onto a good supply hex, or better still on a city hex, for a few turns is it is out of action and often units being low efficiency is due to frantic defence or offence against th...

Re: best way to counter superior tanks?

Another obvious tactic is to cut off their supply if possible. Same result as artillery/air strike shock damage in that insufficient supply also lowers unit efficiency, a key concept in this game. If I had to put my finger on why inexperienced players have difficulty with OOB, it would be not knowi...

Re: best way to counter superior tanks?

thanks bebro, that is useful. Some I do, some i'm less diligent about (the arty one I am aware of but i'm sloppy doing softening up at times). On the whole, its useful to see it in writing as it helps me be more systematic and disciplined. after thought - i'm pretty sure one of my main play style we...

best way to counter superior tanks?

Hi, I was wondering whether I am missing a trick or two. At certain points in the game, whatever nation or scenario you play, you will find yourself outgunned by superior armour. In a defensive battle I would be pretty cool with this; mines, AT, engineers, ambush, supply, but in OoB, which is more o...

Yeah, the image of the skin is the skin itself and all that's needed for it to work.
