Kriegsmarine let's play (replay style)

Post by Mojko » Sun Apr 23, 2017 5:30 am

Hi everyone!

I'm doing a let's play on Kreigsmarine, but instead of making videos on youtube I will be using the newly added functionality of game replays. Eventually, I will post a replay for each scenario in the Krigsmarine campaign, I will be playing on middle difficulty. Looking at these replays is also recommended for those who want to see the new naval combat in action.

To view a replay you just need to download it, unzip it and place it into the "Replays" folder. After that open the game replay from the game menu.

Current scenarios:

Danzig bay
Narvik
Wolfpack

Enjoy :)

You only need to place the downloaded file in the Replays folder. It's located right next to the SaveGame folder. The SaveGame folder location depends on your OS.

New scenarios:

Scapa flow
Atlantic Diversion

This concludes this DLC. Overall I think in terms of game mechanics the campaign was good, but I found it a little bit lacking on the content side. This is definitely my least favourite DLC.

Here are some of my recommendations for the devs to look at:

- Submarines should have the planing hull trait and difficult target trait
- Submarines have incorrect torpedo firing animation while surfaced (fire torpedo from side instead of front)
- AV Bussard unit seems inferior to AV Grief and costs more
- I would try out to reduce Submarine supply to 1
- please add total number of specialisation points that can be gathered in the whole campaign (I wasn't able to get the Shlachtshiffe specialisation because I lacked 2 points at the end)
- Wolfpack specialisation is too expensive since it only effects submarines which have marginal use, appropriate cost should be 3

Here are some gameplay tips that I gathered from my playthrough:

specialisations:

- either rush for carriers or don't but decide at the start (Operation Torch scenario secondary objective can be only achieved when you have carriers at that point)
- drop tank specialisation is not as good as in other campaigns
- wolfpack specialisation is probably overcosted

other:

- avoid using Heinkel He-59, use Condor instead (and Stukas after they are available)
- avoid using Bismarck battleships as they are too slow
- use Deutschland class cruisers as they have longest range
- avoid upgrading "DD Type 1936A Mob" to "DD Type 1936B", because DD Type 1936A Mob is superior
- good torpedo use can really make a difference

Mojko: I was just in the Order of Battle folder and there isn't a replay folder.

Am I guessing correctly when I say I'd have to play a game and establish one first?

Also, the Narvik download comes out as a PDF...I have a feeling that's not what it's supposed to be.

@KlaiggeB The replay folder location may differ based on OS. I use Windows 7 and this is the path to my replay folder : MyDocuments\My Games\Order of Battle - WW2\Replays

I'm pretty sure the file isn't a PDF file, it has ".rec" file extension. I think your OS just doesn't recognise this extension and thinks it's a PDF file. But that doesn't really matter since you do not need to open the file directly. Either way, multiple people downloaded the replays and had no issues viewing them.

Mojko: You must be correct. EVERY file I download from this forum comes up as a PDF, and I don't know how to change that.

I put the file, as a PDF in the Replay folder and it doesn't see it.

Any ideas how to CHANGE how downloads are read?

@KlaiggeB It shouldn't really matter if the files are displayed as PDF because you are not going to open them directly. The game should recognise and open the file. Could you please post some screenshots to clarify the problem? For example it would be helpful to have a screenshot of the replay folder to see if the replay file is properly placed there. Also it would be nice to see a screenshot from the game in the replays section to see that there are no replays there.
