Re: What does it mean to connect secondary objectives in Kiev

Thanks so much for the clarification! I did manage to "accidentally" fulfill what you described eventually.

What does it mean to connect secondary objectives in Kiev

I'm playing the Kiev scenario in the Blitzkrieg campaign.
I've taken all 3 secondary objectives.
They seem to be "connected" by rail and road and supply,
but I'm not getting credit for it. Have I missed something?
Thanks for help on this!

Re: Encirclement strategies for Kiev scenario

Thanks for responding! I like your plan, though I tend to be a bit timid about moving for the encirclement AND the attack on Kiev simultaneously. (I'm assuming that's what you did) I remember you said that you just play scenarios and not campaigns, I believe? In my first run up to Kiev, I had not th...

Placement location for Erik's custom campaigns on MAC

I originally put this in the "Erik's Campaigns" thread, but I think it got lost in the 24 pages... I downloaded the zip file for the Germany West 39-40 to my downloads folder, then unzipped it. Do I just drop the whole unzipped folder in the campaigns folder? I'm on a Mac Currently the folder is in...

Loading a campaign scenario into the editor

How do I load a campaign scenario into the editor?
Should I put a copy of a campaign scenario into a particular folder?
I'm on a Mac.
Thanks!

Re: Erik's campaigns

Do I just drop the whole unzipped folder in the campaigns folder?
I'm on a mac.
Currently it's in Users/thgmusic1/Order of Battle WW2/Campaigns/Germany West 39-40

Once I'm sure I've got the files where they need to be, I'll have some follow-up questions.

Thanks so much Erik for all your hard work!

Encirclement strategies for Kiev scenario

I'm playing through Blitzkrieg at level 3 difficulty. I'm doing ok, especially thanks to some of the great advice from this forum. So, now I'm at the Kiev scenario, which seems like an invitation, if not command, to go for a massive encirclement through pursuing those secondary objectives. I'm prett...

Thanks, I just thought there might be specific types of characters needed for the game engine to recognize the file type.

Re: Best use of engineers

Engineers are very good units for their CP and reinforcement costs. An noted above in posts, they excel in a few certain areas but are still support units and cannot handle isolated combat against most units. They are slightly better defensive units than offensive units. The 2 CP cost compared to 3...

Was this fixed in the latest patch? 7.1.6 I’ve become so accustomed to jetting right past that screen that I haven’t even tried. I’m playing through Steam on Mac and PC. Thanks for any input! Havent tried it yet - but I guess it should be patched. Anyone? I can affirm that it is working on my Mac. ...

So the Steam achievements really still work? I have most of them still not unlocked. Strange. Maybe it's because I've blocked the Steam client with my firewall or something?
Oh, that’s a question above my pay grade... :D

Re: Tank specialist achievement

I did end up getting the achievement. It just didn't show up at the point I got the requisite kill.
Now, how to kill 15 tanks with ONE unit during ONE game?

Tank specialist achievement

I thought for the fun of it, I would go for the tank specialist achievement on Steam. The requirement reads "Accumulate 8 tank class units during a campaign game, each with at least 2 kills. Difficulty level III or higher." So, I loaded up a pre-deployment game (part of the Blitzkrieg campaign) of M...

Re: Best use of engineers

The most important information about eng. you've already got in a nutshell. Give them Bren carriers. Heck, give it to every unit if possible. Before, I never took the "Beutepanzer" spec, because all I could see were the crappy tanks I've got. But the Brens have an incredible range on all terrains a...

Re: Best use of engineers

Engineers can be of use by laying mines on important hexes. The AI has huge problems handling them and in Endsieg west front they are a gamewinner in some scenarios. They also hit almost as hard as Paras vs infantry in close terrian (aka citys etc) especially if you have the Goliath Mine specialisa...

Re: Best use of engineers

Use 2-3 per mission. At least 1. Bring transport, have them advance on roads. They are slow. Let them lead attacks for shock damage and entrenchment reduction. This does not mean they should lead an attack all by themselves, but rather be around and lead an assault on an entrenched position - but o...

Best use of engineers

In light of a recent thread discussing units that people found “useless”, it prompted me to think about how to best use engineers. I’m still a relative noob when it comes to OoB, especially in getting the most out of the different unit types. So, what are your recommendations for the best use of eng...
