Revisiting Order of Battle

I bought OOB when it was first released. I played the Pacific campaigns to death. Loved everything about the game. Played the first 2 German campaigns, and then I got hooked on Hearts of Iron 4. Hadn't played any OOB since I purchased that game back, I guess it'll be 2 years in June? I think it's be...

Re: Given up - for now (partly my own fault), but with reasons & discussion.

I love this game ... it was all I played for a while. At the outskirts of Moscow in Panzerkreig [I think it was?] I stopped and haven't played since, though I still purchase the new DLCs and will continue to do so (I have every intention of returning to play). What happened? It was about that time t...

Re: reinstalling order

Has any of this changed? I have ALL DLCs, including Endseig. Running into an issue while reinstalling the entire game. Rather than ask for a serial #, the installation of US Pacific installs the entire original release in a subdirectory of the game [7.1.4 --- which is what I started with, thinking I...

Re: Afghanistan '11: Royal Marines is out!

Never mind, I figured it out. Duh. The British flag was staring me in the face. Clicked on it and I found my Royal Marines. Looks good!

Re: Afghanistan '11: Royal Marines is out!

I just purchased the Royal Marines DLC. When I loaded the game, it says version 2.0.3, but I see nothing about any Royal Marines. The download was only a little over 3MBs. Am I missing something? I have the base game and this installed to the same path. It seems like I got a patch, but no DLC. Edit:...

INMO, you can't have a complete WWII game without those campaigns/battles.

Re: Which DLC to Buy?

My two co-favorites are The Allies & the Marines - both set in the Pacific region. I guess mainly because they were new & fresh - Pacific WWII has not been done in this fashion and it was a heckava lot of fun playing those 2.

Re: PC version 1.36 - Error when checking for update

Just did the same in the other 3 games I was having this issue with. Works in all. [Frontline: The Longest Day, Gettysburg: The Tide Turns & PanzerCorps Gold] I have many other games where the issue is not present at all.

Anyway, sorted, sorta! :shock:

Re: PC version 1.36 - Error when checking for update

I am using Webroot now. Was using Norton. Makes no difference. I have uninstalled all AV and just used Windows Defender. Same results. I never had the issue until the 1803 update. Have not checked logs, but I have it set to warn me before quarantining anything. Windows10 Pro - 64bit - version 1803 O...

OK - I tried through the link you provided. I redownload the latest patches for Gettysburg: The Tide Turns & Battle of the Bulge. Installed them. I get that same error message when trying to check for a new version. There is no udate.exe file present in the games installation location, only an updat...

Re: PC version 1.36 - Error when checking for update

I'm reinstalling all my games on a clean version of Windows 10. I noticed that Panzer Corps Gold & Gettysburg: The Tide Turns are also missing the update.exe file. I can update them until I get to the most recent version, and then it's gone. Strange. Is it a Windows thing? Or, are the games kaput, s...

Re: Order of Battle: WW2 6.1.7 installers

I had some trouble with this installation at first. Since I was resetting my PC anyway, I tried something new [for me]. I First simply installed the 6.1.7 - fresh on a clean Windows 10. Then, all I had to do was to enter all my DLC keys [which is all of them] directly into the set-up window. Was ext...

I finally had success. I ended up creating a new folder to unzip to. I installed from the .exe file in that new folder and *presto* - INSTALLED! Pays off to do things when your mind is focused.

Re: Can't install Sandstorm

Having a heck of a time. First of all, I am being prompted for about 50 or 60 files that "are in use." Next, even after extracting, I only have one file. Inside the .zip folder are two, but the second one will not open at all. Even if I browse to its path, I get a Windows pop-up asking me if I want ...
