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...

Re: Can't install Sandstorm

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 ...

Re: OOB vs panzer corp

Two things come to mind quickly [mind you, I discovered OOB first - had never played Panzer Corps until after I bought OOB]:

1- The graphics are much better
2- When I initially purchased [upon release], it was devoted to the Pacific Theater

Re: 5.2.1 Hotfix for the 64 bit version of the game

In-game update works. Issue resolved! Weird how this is affecting everyone differently. I just opened the game to see if it would auto-update to 5.2.2. It did, but froze at 100% and I was forced to hard boot my computer. Upon restart, the game shows version 5.2.2 64-bit. I cannot confirm that all s...

Re: Panzerkrieg update problem

Just for the record, same issue here. Version 5.2 [64-bit] installed, but no way to insert key. Program looks for 5.1.6.

Re: Order of Battle - Panzerkrieg Reminder

Looking forward to this!!

Suggestion: You know that little unit that unlocks ONLY if you are also an owner of another game [Heroes of Normandie]? How about unlocking it for owners of all OOB DLCs to date? That would be nice.

Re: Weather effects?

Weather should be a factor in all the campaigns & scenarios, not just a cosmetic effect. It was a primary consideration in many instances. I think it should affect the proceedings.

Re: Future of OOB?

I feel your pain, simcc! I had very high hopes -- perhaps too high -- for this game. I keep waiting for the next thrill, but so far nothing matches the 2 U.S./Allied campaigns in the Pacific Theater. At least for me.

Re: employing the A-bomb

Please! A wargame is a wargame. I get enough political correctness everywhere else in my life. When I play a WWII game - or any game - I do so not only for the fun, but for the escape. And, I want my wargame to accurately reflect the period it represents.

US Marines Issue After the New Patch

This may also effect other campaigns. After adding the new Kreigsmarine DLC & Patch, I stated playing the US Marines Campaign. Two things are amiss: -Each time you reopen the Campaign the Unit Filters default back to off. Just a little annoyance. -About 4 scenarios in, I "ran out of time," and met d...
