Re: Sandstorm units

Re: Are escorts even worth it?

Yeah, escorted bombers seem to take losses they shouldn't when capable escorts are there. That being said, I ALWAYS escort bombers when I can at a 1:1 ratio at minimum. For me, definitely worth it.

But I would like to see a British European campaign starting with Norway, the Expeditionary Corps, the struggle for the Atlantic and then Sicily/Italia and Normandy etc.
Agreed!! :D

Objective bug - Blitzkrieg camp - Norway scen

The counter for the primary objective to destroy 6 Allied units is defective. As I destroyed a unit, I'd check the counter to make sure. It never counted up from 0. Sure enough, got Defeat result even though destroyed the 6 required. Happened after the 6.1.7 upgrade.

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: Difficulty Levels are out of balance

Once again I buy your products thinking maybe the design team has been replaced and reasonable people have taken over. But no, that is not the case. Why do you have difficulty levels 4 and 5 when level 3 is impossible? I have been playing OOB since you sold the first copy and I always play at level...

Re: OOB 6.1.7 Upgrade

Nope. You just have to unzip the downloaded file "OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v6.1.7.zip". After unzipping, you should have two extracted files: "OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v6.1.7.exe" "OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v6.1.7.2" Just have to run "OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v6.1.7.exe". The issue is that some ...

OOB 6.1.7 Upgrade

Just installed the 6.1.7 upgrade and Sandstorm DLC. The upgrade asked for "Disk 2" part way through, might want to advise users that they have to run the "2 File" in the zip to resolve that. Also, the only skin choices shown are 2 desert ones.

You guys are all right on with comments, observations, suggestions, etc. OOB is a good game with plenty of promise and I've already spent many more hours playing than I should be :lol: I do want to thank everyone involved for their hard work from the Aristocrats to the mods to the free scen/camp des...

Try it in 5.3.0. I got it to start just now. I noticed this blurb has changed: Capture873.jpg robertahyuk, bru is correct. Even though you may have ver5.3.0 (I do)the BoB mod has to be updated also.

Re: Germany Grand Campaign - Dunkirk scenario

It is a quirk in the editor. Sometimes when you click elsewhere it places a unit on the map. Edit: Checked the scenario, there's no gunboat on map and nothing is spawned during the scenario either. So I have no clue how that old steamer got beached. Yeah, it's weird. I started to design a scenario ...

Re: Campaign Exploits

Agree with the minefields, can be very effective at stalling AI units. However, I have seen AI engineers remove minefields. I think it was in one of the OOB early Pacific scens, Japanese engineers removed a minefield I was counting on to slow them down.....

Re: Bug: No units will activate

I run across this in the Norway scenario Blitzkrieg campaign. After I capture the first airfield with the German paras, I load them up and next turn when I click on the plane to get them to their next objective, it won't move. I pull up the unit list, click on the unit there and the plane now highli...

OOOOOOOO DAK!!!! (almost faints). Just a little side note here guys, my dad was USAF during the 60's and we spent 4 years in Libya ('62-'66) at Wheelus AFB. I was in 2nd-6th grade so a little young at the time and not quite yet heavily into WW2 history. Wish I had been a little older.... :(

Re: Floating Blank Target Evaluation Box

Guys, I've seen this before also just not only in the Kursk scen but others. That being said, I do think it's in the Panzerkrieg DLC. I usually just do a save, exit to Menu then come back and voila, issue resolved. Haven't really noticed any commonality yet..... :roll:

Re: Order of Battle meets Steel Panthers ???

Anyway I cannot even begin to fathom the amount of coding involved to have this minor patch - rofl. I think that is the key sentence here. Would potentially break the game and involve tons and tons of work. (And this is already getting difficult to handle.) Also, I struggle to understand your argum...
