Yes! But, too late to move long distances to track them all down successfully. I WILL prevail, though ... sooner or later. :lol:

Re: Dunkirk

I have had the "spitfire" event fire a couple of times. Not sure of what triggered it, but I achieved the objective anyhow - somehow. In fact, I have achieved ALL the "secondary" objectives in this scenario twice - still lost because a few enemy units remained on the map that I failed to destroy. To...

Re: Two features I'd like to see

"Undo" for sure! Can't tell you how many times - when caught up in the heat of the moment - I clicked the wrong unit or hex. This is particularly true when a ground & air unit occupy the same hex. That would be so very helpful for us "geezers".

Thumbs Up To Blitzkrieg!!

What a game. Eminently playable! OOB WWII has just reached another milestone in playability. A fine balance in making "blitzkrieg" scenarios that offer a challenge to the player. This is the ultimate WWII game in terms of appearance, immersion, and just plain fun. I am playing at the Major [middle] ...

Re: Mortar Fire in Blitzkrieg

I thought that might be the "issue." Haven't noticed any real effect, though. Will keep an eye on it.

Mortar Fire in Blitzkrieg

I have noticed that heavy infantry mortar fire appears to have no effect. Zero, every time. I haven't played Pacific since the new patch & DLC, so I don't know if this is Blitzkrieg specific, or not. Anyone else experiencing this?

Re: What happened to Seabees in Allies campaign?

Well, this is embarrassing! I just "discovered" that you can scroll through the little purchase units by type by using the slider - that I never noticed - on the right side of the panel. Lo & behold ... Seabees!!

Now I wonder how many other unit types I have missed. Might be a whole new game!

How do you update the game on a Mac?

I have the game installed on my MacBook Air. Is there anyway to update the game? I am on version 2.4 something, with US Pacific & Rising Sun installed. Are the versions the same as on PC? I have the free-to-play version, btw. Maybe the game updates as new DLCs are purchased? I see no in-game option....

Re: Using the A Bomb

I used it once. It destroys everything within a few hexes, so I ended up bombing my own troops. I don't recall any movement restriction after that though.

OK -- thanks. Norton was blocking it. I don't know why, it never has before. Anyway, I changed the setting. All good.

Re: Error with In-game Update

I already have version 2.6.8 installed. Whenever I start up the game, I always click on "Check for Update" just in case you guys slipped one in on me. :D Was working fine until a day or two ago. Now I get that error. Nothing has changed on my end that I know of.

Error with In-game Update

When clicking on "Check for Update" [patch 2.6.8 - noticed over the past 24 hours, or so] I see this:

Re: What happened to Seabees in Allies campaign?

So, a simple question - have Seabees been purposefully removed from the game or is it an oversight? Patch 2.6.8 - no Seabees in the game for purchase AT ALL - yet, they are referred to in the new units notice & elsewhere. The only Seabees in the game, as the Allies OR the Marines are the unit at Gua...

Re: Display Error In Patch 2.6.8 - Individual Scenario

UPDATE 2: I am not sure, but it seems that if one starts a new instance of the individual battle scenario all is fine. If you RESTART a scenario, you get what I pictured above. Might be something the developers should look at.

Re: Display Error In Patch 2.6.8 - Individual Scenario

UPDATE: I started a new instance of the scenario and all is fine, as far as the messaging goes. All info is appearing as it should be. No idea why it wasn't in the first attempt. Will update if anything changes.

Re: Display Error In Patch 2.6.8 - Individual Scenario

This also applies to all the event messages that appear during game play. This, along with previously mentioned [in another post] Requisition Points shortages in the US Marines individual scenarios, make for very tough individual scenario play - especially for a newcomer to the game.
