Is E-100 spesialization still bugged?

Post by Chub86 » Wed Mar 06, 2019 9:10 am

Hello.

After the patch I was able to select E-series specialization, but I still can't purchase E-100 tanks in Calais mission.

Is it still bugged or am I missing something?

Thanks.

True, you can't and that's because it is not available until July 45. Calais mission happens in May. Though OoB is a suberb game, its equipment file continues to be a joke. :roll: This bug is easy to fix if you want by changing the available date of E-100 (and why not Maus at the same time) in units.csv with an editor of your choosing.

Are you kidding me?!?!?!

I skipped the last mission when the DLC first came out exactly because of this and have been waiting to play what I paid for months ago...

Seriously! :evil:
I thought the "Entwicklung Series" spec would do something similar as the "Advanced Aeronautics" spec and make the E-100 available earlier in the campaign, not just unlocking it (as it's done usually). Makes no sense this way without adapting the dates, too... :roll:
(But the 10% RP off works)

Well, will (also) be corrected in my mod. Update soon.

But you're not talking about the German one, with the "Me_262", are you?
It worked in beta, I'm sure of it. Recieved it 1-2 scens earlier with the spec.

No, not specifically. Does it then work in, say, Burma Road also? If yes, then I happily stand corrected. :)

I think this is a f*cking joke.

The game was released 13 NOV 2018, and this was one of the advertised units.
Now almost 4 months later, the E-100 is still not in the game.

I demand some sort of hotfix patch, so we can play with this tank.

Nah, you're right, it doesn't do anything there. Tested it just now again. The Meteor comes as stated with the usual availability date 02/1945.
No happy Cool for now... :(

Now that Gabe has provided you with a fix I think you owe him a thank you. And please keep to a modicum of civility in your posts. The customer may always be right, but he doesnt have to be a d*ck.

Overwriting the stock file and no, just the date fix.

Found it (in "content"), but it doesn´t work.

The E-100 cannot be purchased as described in the specialisation.

Im at the beginning of the Brussel/Antwerp mission (mission 14 i think). 1 FEB 1945.

According to the units file the E-100 is availible from 1/7 1945 and Gabe's unit file has it set to 30/4/1945. Have we confirmed that is should be avalible at Antwerp/Brussels?

You should've learned by now that you don't always get what you want exactly the moment you want it, right? :wink:

There are some specs that can be purchased before the actual effect takes place. Has been like this with other specs with other campaigns as well. Didn't feel right to make the E-100 available before the "Maus". But that's open for discussion and I may stand corrected.

Imo Gabe's choice of putting the E-100 available for the final mission only is the correct one. That's where you see the American monsters also (T29, T95).
