Re: Erik's campaigns

US Corps, 44-45 Comments My deepest thanks for this campaign too, to both Erik and Bru. Each scenario has its quirks and secrets, and I think it is the best in the OOB universe. I admit, I could not win the last 5 or so without selling warbonds. As Dwight pointed out, you can win and save RPs by goi...

Re: Erik's campaigns

One of the comments still stands: Avranches is not winnable. 2) Avranches: To win, you have to exit ten units but with only 24 turns and two exit points, it's impossible. That means you have to get through those heavy German defenses and capture one of the exit points by turn 14, or both by 19. I c...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Thanks for the feedback. But...as you noted as well, I need some details about any issues to be able to fix them. That said, if you played the updated US 44-45 campaign after Bru's sweep, the victory objectives should work. Right. I later noticed there was an update. One of the comments still stand...

Re: Erik's campaigns

US Corps 44-45 Player feedback: I've only played six scenarios (some many times) but have some comments: 1) Many of the victory conditions don't work, meaning you accomplish all the goals and just get a draw or minor victory. I should have kept notes on all such scenarios, but didn't. Cherbourg and ...

US Corps 44-45 Comment on: US Corps 44-45 V1.0 Omaha Beach Scenario level 3 I took a few notes while I was sitting on the beach Shellshocked. Seems like I remember the PC version of this one being a tough one. The OOB version seems to be one sided in favor of the Allied armies. I started my core fro...

Re: Erik's campaigns

US Corps 43-44. Once again, the amazing Erik has put together a campaign that is keeping me away form both work and sleep (only halfway through so far) Medium difficulty level: enemy has 12 strength. Resources scare: Up through scenario 5 I have not yet once been able to field all units I could have...

Duplex,
Great scenarios for Nationalist China. Thanks so much. Meaty, hard, long, strategic! All I need for another 500 hours of play.

Re: Erik's campaigns

Hi Erik, Another round of awesome campaigns. It is because of you my OOB game time is up to 4911 hours. I can't tell you how grateful I am for making what I think is the best game out even better. Someday I'm going to hunt you down in Norway to express my thanks in person. So now I'm doing Africa Co...

Re: Erik's campaigns

You are the best. Thanks to you, I now have 4600 hours in OOB play time. I'm supposed to be producing a magazine and working on an online Harvard grad School course, but get tempted to play my second time through the whole German campaign.

Re: Erik's campaigns

Wacht am Rhein. Another good campaign thanks to Erik, and as he says, we owe thanks to the Panzer Corps folks. I have found a number of minor errors that do not affect game play much, such as victory conditions not recognized. But the big one is scenario 8, Widening, that always ends on turn one end...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Hi Gabe, Your solution was almost the same as mine. Paratroopers take northern airbase and then cutoff rod supply, which is what kills them in the end. One of my aircraft was a bomber that I could also use to remove 3 point supply sources. The rest of the army, after that brutal panzer attack, moved...

Desert Rats Medenine

Hi players, Desert Rats, there are some great scenarios in there. I love game play that makes you think carefully about how to use armor, air, supply, and even infantry. One I have trouble with is Medenine. If anyone has won it in 20 turns, at normal settings, tell me how. I used the editor to set i...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Desert Rats is a great campaign, but First Bardia still has problems. There is no air or navy deploy allowed, and only 3 points for land units (until you take a resource point). The Aussies alone cannot win.

OOB cannot load on Steam

As of yesterday, possibly after Mac High Sierra update 10.13.5 I could not open Order of Battle on Steam on my Mac. I tried on both my iMac and Mac Powerbook (High Sierra OS) and got the same result as shown in the attached file, a message that the game is damaged or incomplete. The solution to this...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Erik's work has been one of the best things that has happened to me in a long time. As a result, my OOB play time has gone over 3000 hours! I wish there was some better way we could thank him.

Re: Erik's campaigns

Hi Erik, As you know, I am totally in love with your campaigns. I consider your work better than many of the official downloadable campaigns. You offer more ways to vary strategy, where some of the official ones do not. The US Navy Campaign v.1.1 is also superb. Let me point out a few errors I've en...

Re: Erik's Singleplayer scenarios

Just tried two of Erik's new Malaysia scenarios, and once again, he has shown his genius. Kota Bharu and Muar both show how you can beat an overwhelming superior force with strategic retreats and little bit of sneakiness. Like all the best OOB scenarios, you are not forced into one particular strate...
