I turned Orbitalcommand on for a few turns while testing a scenario.
I hoped that running it a second time would turn it off, but no.
Restarted OOB, it was still on (cached?).

Restarted PC.
Now it is acting really weird, it looks like some heavy FOW is on for close-by enemy units while those outside visible range is displayed.
No, I have not been smoking my socks :D

I have seen Orbitalcommand do some strange things when used. won't turn off, FOW gets crazy, others I can't remember as I try not to use it much.

IIRC, when they first put out the cheats, there was a mention of Orbitalcommand possibly doing some odd things to the game play.
Then again, I might just be smoking my socks...could have just been a brain fart.

An OOB veteran once told me that if we switch #orbitalcommand on, it means the AI units will have THEIR fog of war removed as well, meaning they'll be able to see exactly where we are at all times.
The cheat is very useful when scenario building because it allows us to see if the AI are behaving properly, but I'd never, ever, use it during actual gameplay or I'd feel like I was- well- cheating..:)

PS- the cheat can't be switched off as far as I know except by exiting the game and starting again, haha serves you cheaters right..:)

I have Order of Battle 8.1.0 - all DLCs installed - new PC

I am trying to unlock all the scenarios. Shift + C opens the console, but #gimmeall does not unlock anything. I press "Confirm," but nothing happens.

I couldn’t get it to work.

I found this cheat code on another site:

#videomode on/off
Turns the UI off or back on again

richfed, just to double-check about the highlighted comment:

#gimmeall
Unlock all scenarios for individual play despite campaign status (used only in the Main Menu screen).

I would try it now but all of my DLC scenarios are already unlocked.

Yeah, it was not the main screen. Try some other screens/menus, I'm sure it did work somewhere. :wink:

Yeah, I tried it on various screens with no success. Console opens, but that's it. I'll try again one day. I wish there was an in-game option for playing individual scenarios at any time. Getting a new PC should not be a penalty to a game-owner. Not that playing whole campaigns is a penalty, but having the choice would be nice.

I believe #gimmeall is not working for a long, long time, if it ever worked.
Instead use another workaround:
• Press SHIFT + C
• Type "#igotnukes" (without quotation marks, no capitals or spaces)
• Press the confirm button to get an instant victory"
Do this to next scenarios and soon you'll have unlocked all the scenarios.

Of course it does. I recall POSpike using it the last time, some months/year ago.
Come on, why do I have to do everything myself? :wink: :lol:
All you have to do is input the code in the campaign screen and eeeeverything's unlocked... :roll:

Tedious, but it worked. Thanks!

Hi,

FWIW, #gimmeall works just fine for me on the latest patch version...

Just to add some whining ... sometimes I read a thread which seems to indicate someone just started using the game for the first time maybe the Cheat Codes sticky could be updated as necessary meaning for example next to the #gimmeall indicate it needs to be done in the campaign Screen but then having read what Shards said maybe this is not needed but anyway the point is if we have learned about some specifics on things maybe update the stickies as needed ....
