Hey Guys,
i would like buy your new DLC ,,Red Star" but I read a lot about problems with this game in the comments on Steam. At first some users wrote that there are problems with the game in relationto the german language. Some missions should be without description in german and the have big problems to understand which missionabjectives are important to complete the missions successful. At next texts for events are completley missing too.
This should be not a critique. I would like to draw your attention on this things because these problems decrease the fun to play this game.

In order to play with the german language but get the missing text objectives until they fix it, you can simply copy in each scenario directory the english text file into german like this:
Directory of the scenarios from Red Star: [your_game_directory]\Order of Battle World War II Red Star\64-bit\Order of Battle - WW2_64_Data\Content\Campaigns\12Soviet\Scenarios
Copy file: text_english.txt into text_german.txt
Do that in each scenario directory:
- sov1_01_LakeKhasan
- sov1_02_KhalkhinGol
- sov1_03_KhalkhinGol
- sov1_04_Grodno
- sov1_10_Smolensk_41
- sov1_11_Yelnya
- sov1_12_Rostov
- sov1_13_Moscow
- sov1_5_Fin_Invasion
- sov1_6_Summa_39
- sov1_7_Summa_40
- sov1_8_Viipuri
- sov1_9_Raseiniai

and then you should get the missing text displayed. Of course in english, but the rest of the game is still in german. I think it's easy to understand the mission objectives in english. Or if you want, you can translate the text in the file into your language, since it is editable.

Yes, the victory conditions are sometimes badly written in the scenarios and we have trouble understanding them.
Basically there are Primary objectives and there are Secondary objectives, and what we MUST do is achieve ALL the Primaries to get a victory.
We can try to achieve the Secondaries but it's optional.
For example if we achieve the Primaries we get an ordinary "Victory", but if we don't achieve some Secondaries we only get a "Minor" victory.
If we achieve ALL the Primaries and ALL the Secondaries, we get a "Major" victory.

I was a beta-tester for Order of Battle Red Star, the Objectives and the Events are simple and clear in this DLC (that's a good point :D ) and it is not necessary to have a good level of English to understand them (I am French and I always play in English).

I've ordered the Game!:

But have had nothing but grief since!.

I was able to download the Game from another source other than the SKYPE Web-Site, but...when I tried to UPDATE it to v8.1 or whatever...I was unable to do so because of Log-In issues?. My Log-In works for some instances, but when it comes to downloading the UpDate...it is a 'No-Can-Do'...because my usual Log-In entry refuses to be recognized and I am unable to redo my Log-In information and whatever else goes with it to straighten out this mess!.

As well, my SKYPE Log-In Serial Number issued to my newly purchased game is not accepted by the SKYPE Web-Site???. It counters my entry with a statement that other vendors that have issued this SKYPE Serial Number have already registered it?, how...I don't know???...and that the SKYPE Web-Site cannot use it because of that reason!.

What can be done to rectify these issues?.

Please contact support@slitherine.co.uk and they'll get you sorted.

I don't know what you mean about SKYPE though - we have no connection with Skype.

This link does not work for me.

I have the same problem as Retributarr. I think this comes from discount codes. :wink:
I know that the game I bought was sent to another person’s account.
But it’s easier for me, I turned to Adam to convey my problem in support :)

Fhere is a chance that something like this has also happened to me!. That could be why at the SKYPE Web-Site...it stated to me that my SKYPE Activation Code has already been registered?.

I have never before had issues like this...something is very wrong here!.
