Downloaded rev 1.83 again and installed the patch. I was able to launch the game, then clicked on the install link within the game to get the BoB patch. Exited the game then restarted and saw an opening splash screen with the Pacific launcher option on the left and the BoB option on the right. Clicked on the BoB link which took me to a black screen and nothing more. Had to Ctrl-Alt-Delete to exit the task and back out of the game. Relaunched the fame and this time clicked on The Pacific link on the left which worked fine and noticed that the rev was still at 1.83. So, not sure what I'm doing wrong at this point. All of the previous downloadable content seems to work fine and are located in the Scenarios section.

Now that you have 1.83 installed you need to install 1.93.

To confirm.....installing the 1.83 patch and then the 1.93 did the job. The BoB content is now gloriously there. As a note, I don't see patch 1.83 as being available on the OOB Pacific product pages; neither here nor on the Matrix site.

Awesome MOD but please repair some of bugs:
- THE MAP of EUROPE (before the enter the battle) is present. Please change map of Europe from in 1939 or 1940 year
- In the first scenario the british bomber and german boat at some point they stand and not move
- I've noticed that german elite camo dissapeard

Downloaded rev 1.93 and got the game to load and the BOB campaign to launch. I'll likely give it a whirl later today. Thanks for the free DLC.

I second that. It is embarassing to see today's borders on the map, including independent Baltic States and crumbled Yugoslavia. It is just plain wrong.

Fun mod.

I noticed the Stukas seem to do a large amount of damage to shipping. Basically two hits and the ship is sunk. The problem I have is while defending shipping, even with two Hurricanes attacking and knocking the Stukas health down to 2-4 points, it still does the same amount of damage. The damage should be dialed back as the Stuka takes damage.

It would also be nice to be able to launch more than one plan from our airfields. I have a number of planes at the bases being repaired, but can only launch one at a time? thanks

I switch in Main Menu to german language (click on flag), but the briefings (Text & spoken Briefings) are furthermore in english.

Is german language not available?

No, sadly we didn't have the time to localise the whole mod. With the game now supporting 4 languages that has become a substantional undertaking.

Hmm, that's a pity! :(

Is there a plan to translate this in german language in the future?

Because for example the complete Panzer Corps Grand Campaign are available in german language, I have the same gladly for this game / Add-On too! :D

But did that also cost you $0.00? :roll:

All upcoming (unannounced) full DLC campaigns will of course be available in all languages supported by the base game.

An Add-On in my mother language would be also worth to pay for it.... :wink:

In my Opinion nothing is better for the atmosphere than to read text and hear spoken things in own language! :D

I see you guys are still modders at heart. NTW2 was a radical total conversion and this one seems pretty impressive too. Only now you`re modding your own game. :D Kudos to everyone involved!

EDIT: btw, if you went through the trouble of adding an European map for the menu, why add one from the XXI century? It even shows Kosovo. Luckily, the pistol covers Crimea ...

Stuka's do way too much damage and Spitfire's are pretty harmless! The Hurricane is more potent! But, I didn't buy the game for this MOD. Also I think that the scenario's and the campaign is mixed up on the start-up menu? It also would be nice to switch back to the Pacific game without exiting the game and re-opening! Basically a cool game...

I guess there is more than one way to access the "Campaign" scenario. You can click on the map presented to play the campaign, or the intro to planes! Also the Campaign starts on July 10th, not June 12th? No big deal either way!!

I agree with you and mind you, I'm not German and I don't even need the language pack, but in my opinion it turns the game into a mess for German speaking customers, when some parts are still in English, regardless the fact that this update is free. There is also such a thing called "Love for the game" that should encourage the developers that make sure that there isn't going to be a mix of two languages, when only one is selected. If this would be my "baby" as a developer, I would make sure that all 4 languages are supported, even if I had to sacrifice my own spare time to fix it without getting paid, call me crazy for all I care. :)

PS: Isn't here a way for the community to help with the translations? Come on... try to find a solution, I bet my life on it that lots of your customers speak German.

Click no the crate in the top right corner on the main menu.
You can download the mod from there. You need to restart the game afterwards.
