Re: Animation speed & replays

The mentioned "older" options.dat file only cranks up the movement speed of the units. Nothing else. And it was only a temporary solution then - as the file was overwritten as soon as you've changed something inside the settings... You can remove the move and attack animations from the units file. A...

Re: Cannot find Scenarios list

There's a "workaround" for this problem, but it's not error-free itself: You can set the "unlocked.dat" file (contains the unlocked scens) inside the OoB \Settings folder to "read-only" via the Windows-Explorer. Problem is, it won't be updated when you play something new and it only works after a fr...

Re: What new units would you like to see in the second allied dlc?

A land based recon plane for the US faction that's not blue.

A twin-fuselage aircraft and/or more twin-boom planes. (They just look cool...)

And Soviet infantry not using the Japanese models anymore.

Re: conboy's campaigns

Nothing elso to report.

Well, maybe add a few turns to the "18 Rhin" scen.
2-3 should suffice, it was really tight. Captured them eastern VPs on the very last turn.

Thanks again, conboy, a great campaign!!! :mrgreen: 8) 8) 8)

Re: conboy's campaigns

Conboy, I do note Gabe is using the 90mm AA guns as AT, weren't these supposed to be ditched to get the Quad AA on halftracks instead? I'd assumed punitive action for not following instructions as when I tested upgrading the infantry halftracks I lost them. Okay, true, I did not disband ANY of my u...

So, my question is: what are the rules for evacuation and disembarking?
You have to move your units onto the (land) exit hexes near Athens. No disembarkation necessary.

Re: conboy's campaigns

At deployment stage of "Low Vosges to Strasbourg" I could buy new units for my core, even for the BlueTeam. Intended?

:arrow: The M4A3 105mm was already available for purchase some scens ago, but I did not see that as a problem. But now the M36 Jackson or the Sherman Calliope.

Re: Using Official Content

Duplex, if you want a quick answer, write a PM to Shards or somebody at Slitherine. That's what I did before publishing my mod here. And FYI, many of the OoB "binary" files are just renamed ZIP files. Like savegames, replays and scenario (.scz) files. And the "offical" ones have a password. That is ...

Re: Using Official Content

I can't give you a definitive answer either, and I think that Bruce is right about having to own the corresponding DLC to be able to play the custom scen then. But there was once this thread here: Custom campaign - Finland in WW 2 and I quote: "I took the original Winter War DLC campaign and started...

I was really "disappointed" that the Anzio siege scen had an automated "early" victory on turn 12. It was so much fun and I wanted to add some more turns with #overtime to continue playing... :wink: :lol: Screenshot 307.jpg PS: I think you've misspelled siege with "seige" in the scen description

Well, I tried it with Trondheim (Allies Defiant) since I have a suitable save and you do get an extra 15 RPs if you go to the full number of turns. Maybe the changes/work do not apply to this issue?
OK, thanks, I see. Then it's still like that. A mini-exploit... :D
