Panzerkrieg update problem

Post by Navman2854 » Thu Nov 30, 2017 6:51 pm

Running Win10 64bit. Updated OOB to ver 5.2.0 64bit, purchased Panzerkrieg and when trying to install it keeps telling me that ver must be 5.1.6?

Same here.

Edit: The online news still display the Burma Road patch 4.1.1 news.

I'm sorry guys, but this can only be fixed by production tomorrow.

Hm, no problems here. But I only played the (many, many, many...) iterations of the beta, which were all separate builds.
In that time, I did not touch my steam version of OoB, so it stayed on the Burma Road build number.
I now took the product key from Slitherine, went to the store, activated Panzerkrieg, got my Steam key, entered into Steam, download Panzerkrieg, done.
I guess you just have to update it in the right order of patches. Maybe you can revert back to an older version? (I have no idea, steam version here...)

Yes, "it's only" with the 64 bit version.
We apologize for all the inconvenience.

Just for the record, same issue here. Version 5.2 [64-bit] installed, but no way to insert key. Program looks for 5.1.6.

Same issue with patch 5.2.0:

Maybe that I would have had to at first install Panzerkrieg before installing the patch 5.2.0 ?

I think DLC will not start until you install patch 5.2.0. :wink:

Therer's a workaround, but it evolves editing Windows registry, so it's better to wait for tomorrow where production will fix the issue.

You probably have to change the version number from 5.2.0 to 5.1.6 in the registry?

I did the same as Andy2012 :
I purchased the DLC, took the product key from Slitherine, went to the store, activated Panzerkrieg, got my Steam key, entered into Steam, download Panzerkrieg, done.
Started the DLC in steam, saved it, closed steam, started the game on PC, loaded the saved DLC game and.... I play it further on PC.
Once the update for PC is released I gonna install it anyway :-)
RES NON VERBA

Unfortunately this was a bug with the 5.2.0 version of the game, so we've fixed this this morning with a 5.2.1 patch, so please try updating the game again then installing the DLC. You can use the Check for Updates button on the autorun menu to download the patch as normal or alternatively please see a download link for this below:

Still doesn't do it for me. Applied the 5.2.1 hotfix, installed Panzerkrieg, finished install normally, doesn't show up on the campaign screen. I already turned the virus scanner off.
