Order of Battle Pacific

Post by Cataphract88 » Wed Dec 06, 2017 11:02 pm

I have followed VPaulus's instructions to the letter, and while this seems to have restored the DLCs I have lost the original game that I purchased. Subsequently split into two parts, neither O.O.B. US Pacific nor Rising Sun are working, and want me to purchase again!

Please help me with this fiasco, or this may be the last O.O.B. (or indeed Slitherine/Matrix game) I ever buy! :evil:

I think that's what this button is for when you update (click the image - it's on the bottom):

It's for people in your situation who still have a game key from when U.S. Pacific and Rising Sun were one purchase; they are still honoring it.

Thanks a lot, Bru, that worked fine (can't believe I missed it! :oops: :roll: ). I've lost count of how many times I installed and uninstalled it.

So what does one do if they didn't see that button when they updated?

I went to check because it occurred to me that it might appear on one but not the other but the button is on both install and update dialog windows:

Now, maybe you are installing the 32-bit version of the game, which was 2.4.8? They used that as the base installer for a long time. I'm thinking that, when that file was created, the situation that now requires offering a Pacific Serial key entry box did not exist. If that is what you are looking at, then proceed with the installation and look for the Pacific Serial button on the 32-bit 5.2.3 update instead.

By the way, I went through the difference between 64-bit and 32-bit installations with this guy last night. Hopefully he is still sleeping and has not given up. :wink:
