2.9.6g Hotfix (updated)

PC

If correctly applied, it should read v2.9.6g at the bottom of the main menu.

This fixes the following issues:
  • AI turn freezeing in several scenarios/situations
  • US Midway loading screen getting stuck (possibly also an issue in some other older scenarios)
MAC

There is no hotfix installer available for Mac at the moment but you can download this zip:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/iax68sttumy71 ... s.zip?dl=0

And paste these files in the Order of Battle app manually (right click the app > show contents).

While the hotfix fixed the AI freezing for me, the Midway scenario still cannot be loaded.

Will a future patch automatically fix the steam version?

My bad, the fix for this was applied to our "in development" code but not to the 2.9.6 release code. The hotfix installer has now been replaced, so for those who got it yesterday, please redownload & reinstall.

Updated, this should fix further (hopefully all?) issues with AI turn freezing.

Is there a separate one for the Mac Version?

Sorry for the n00b question, but how do you apply the hot fix? I've unzipped the file and run the .exe, but it hasn't changed the version number. Do I have to do the extraction in a particular location? And what version do I select for Mac OS X?

Thanks,
-Carl

No joy using the installer

It went to the "managed" folder in the data folder

the game menu is still showing the "2.9.6d" version of the latest patch

The hot-fix should install in your main OOB folder.
I have a non-standard installation folder (see screenshot), and the hot-fix installed in this folder.
Run the hotfix exe again and check if it is installing to the correct folder. If not, type the path to or browse to your installation folder.

OK..from everything I've read given that these are .dll files, they are only relevant to windows, so unless I'm missing something it would appear there would need to be a fix for the MAC since I know I'm experiencing the same issue and it would appear that I cannot use this hot fix.

Sorry, but the hotfix is only available on PC. The fix is also present in the Steam version of the Mac version of the game, so you could redeem your free Steam key and unlock this in Steam then play this. For those who are unable to use the Mac Steam version then this will be in the next patch which we will get out as soon as possible.

Great- fixed Pearl for Me! Thanks for the direction on that...hadn't realized the ability to "right click" to get into the "core" of the program.

Hi
I have a problem with exporting my core force from morning sun to rising sun when I finished morning sun:
In the core force screen you have right an empty screen and to the left a scroll tab with your unit pics in and on the top of that a "exporting force button"
How do I drag my forces to the rising sun campaign?
Please explain.
Greeting's
Robby

Have a look at this thread:

The export/import button has changed since this, but the process is the same.

I was wondering why during the Polish campaign that the AI freezes up on turn 15 of the Warsaw scenario? It's the German AI movement that just keeps going on and never moves on.
