Re: PBEM Server issues

I wonder if your issues are related to those being discussed in the Global Announcements thread PBEM server maintenance notice (October 12) which is now five pages long. OOB is not one of the games listed as being affected, but still I wonder. You may want to look through that thread if you have not...

Re: New installation of OoB

You need the keys to enable DLC. Do you mean update all DLC? If so, I believe each patch is cumulative and will update all DLC to the very latest versions. Oh, wait a minute. Perhaps you mean will 8.6.0 allow you to install all DLC to date (if you have the keys), up to and including Red Storm? The a...

Re: Tell me about Difficulty

Is there any updated guide for the game? Or is the manual fine? The manual has needed updating for years but the basics are unchanged. To my knowledge, these are the only major changes to the game that it fails to encompass at this time: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=264&t=74089 h...

Re: Tell me about Difficulty

You will hear from some players as to them always playing on maximum difficulty . . . and wanting even more punishment! I am not the world's best OOB player but I am not an OOB noob, either. I have always felt comfortable playing on middle difficulty* and, to the extent possible, I have tried to att...

Re: Tell me about Difficulty

What I am surprised about is that none of you fellows mentioned that the degree of difficulty is actually up to the scenario designer, not the game designer. Now, what I am about to say must be tempered with the need to adhere somewhat to actual history. Any otherwise reputable designer would be irr...

Re: What is the Future for OOB?

And I would like time reversed back to the American Civil War; that would be heavenly. I could play that in splendid isolation while the real 21st Century American Civil War roiled around me. Until they came for me, that is, or the power went out. But who knows? We get hints from time to time about ...

My pleasure. Hopefully you will buy more DLCs and keep in mind that owning just one DLC unlocks the possibility of playing custom content created by the community.

Re: update question

Each patch has DLC updates that are automatically applied whether you own them or not. If you look "under the hood," you see that your game installation comes with all DLC campaigns released to date and that is true of every new program version. Of course, you need the purchased keys to access them ...

I am somewhat meticulous with spelling and grammar, both in my own stuff and noticing the mishaps of others, but I have come to realize a number of things that I keep in mind: 1) There have been more than one main DLC designers over the years. A couple of the DLCs seem to have been created by "guest...

Don't be so dramatic you all, he's taking some time off from "work", not OoB or this forum! :D :wink: Well, yeah, although I myself might have sounded overly dramatic. Bad day, that, and CSI sweeping had suddenly lost its luster. Still, I need some time to reset the OOB meter with the emphasis on e...

Bru, I know that you're flamed out at the moment, but I think that River Plate in a good place now? I think so. This was the only issue that I was aware of, fixed in 8.5.8: "Decision Popups appear too early" (That's from beta; is there an official changelist for 8.6.0?) I'll be back soon. Private l...

Yeah, and I am reluctant to do this, but I have lost interest in sweeping. I'm done. Nothing to do with you, conboy, except this "San Fratello and Brolo" scenario is beyond me. I cannot figure out what is going on; it's that complicated. But it was just a trigger for a bigger personal issue. I hate ...

Re: Game stopped working - black screen

Try deleting the settings folder. Don't worry; the game will make another one with default settings. Doing this sometimes helps with "black screen" issues.
