OOB- Cannot Get US Pacific installed.

Post by drjeff21 » Tue Sep 20, 2016 8:58 pm

I have the OOB WWII installed with the new Finnish War, US Marines and Morning Sun mods installed and available. I have tried several times to install US Pacific and Rising Sun now and although the installations seem to complete without errors, the icons on the map are still grey and I cannot access them.

What options do you see displayed when selecting US Pacific or Rising Sun campaigns in the campaign map?
Is it "Purchase Campaign" or a "Launch" button?

I also got this problem when I got the latest patch. When I hovered over them the icons said Try out or purchase (something like that). Luckily I'd saved the install files and reinstalled and then they worked fine. Strange.

The "Purchase Campaign" button appears.

Do the following:
1 - Uninstall the game
2 - Rename the folder named "Order of Battle - WW2" as "_Order of Battle - WW2" in the Documents\My Games folder.
3 - Reinstall Order of Battle - WW2 (1.48)
4. Update with 1.68 patch
5. Install US Pacific and Rising Sun campaigns

Run the game and check if the campaigns are now available, and if so install the remaining campaigns.

Ok, I will do that when I have the opportunity and will report back. Thank you for your assistance!

I'm having a similar problem. I'm installing the game on a new computer. I can't locate OOB v 1.48 or 1.68 patch. Both versions have been updated.

also when I follow the link to the members section and try to download from there I get an error code 530 permission denied. I purchased OOB (the original game) with US Pac and Rising Sun.
