64-Bit problems

Hello, I upgraded today to the new version of Order of Battle and downloaded the new DLC. However it seems that i am now unable to start up the game. whenever i run the game from steam, or from the autorun.exe the game tells me that: Windows cannot find '\64-bit\Order of Battle - WW2_64.exe'. Make s...

Re: Thoughts on 43 Upgrades and future plans

Some of my remarks. =P - A shame to see you transform all those SE tanks into tigers. Ah well. ;) Maybe you can keep some of your regular tanks as Panzer IV/III? The late models can still be useful, or consider trying out a Panther. =3 -I would be highly in favor of getting that towed 8.8 cm Pak 43,...

Re: Best Infantry Unit discussion

I try to use a healthy mix of everything. I have at least 3 of every type all with at least 3-4 stars of experience, except Kradshutzen ( i have 1 ) because indeed they will be less useful due to no upgrades, poor performance in snow, etc. All different types can come in quite handy at different tim...

Re: Grand Campaign East 39-45 Manstein level

2nd Kharkov gives you an obscene prestige amount per turn, i think 200. Quite unnecessary wouldn't you say? Especially looking at the difficulty. =P (I remember me getting 100 if I'm not mistaken) So it's no surprise you are boosted so much. I had hoped you would be going for Sevastopol Assault. Any...

Re: Grand Campaign West 39-41 Blind 42-45 Guderian

Really enjoying this as a blind playthrough. I think the campbeltown blowing up has to do with the English taking a for me unknown amount of victory hexes in the South-East (the three hexes next to each other). If they don't take those hexes, it doesn't blow up, and you will be able to get a decisiv...

Re: How and why so many AAR's

Don't you get these Italian troops for 2 missions? * Yes spoilers * =P I would say it wasn't worth it. I also think you need the experience and prestige on your core forces. Dieppe was harsh for me because 3/4 infantry and artillery i used were greens. You must be having a similar problem. (maybe?) ...

Re: How and why so many AAR's

As for Novoanninsky, maybe retreat a little bit and let the AI come to you, allow it to make mistakes and ambush it. Once 2/3 of the T-34/40's are gone, you can focus on the remaining units, and the artillery will not be a problem anymore. ( Also i will be interested to see how you deal with the Ilo...

Re: How and why so many AAR's

Although i just started my 42'-43' West adventure i will try to help. ;) I would personally not take the +3 def AT-gun, but instead go for Heinrich bar, this will give you 2 excellent fighters instead of 1. That extra initiative will help you big time. As for that infantry, I think Oleh Dir can be a...

Re: Patch 1.40

You should't trust the combat predictor quite a bit. Not only are the outcomes indeed random per roll so it can deviate quite a bit, the predictor doesn't show you properly what your chances are. An example: say that an enemy unit can attack mine with 3 str, it has a 40% chance of dealing a damage t...

Re: Heavy Steel preview

I'm pretty excited to see a continuation of the war in the East. I was quite the fan of Blitzkrieg, and hope the subsequent DLC in that theater will be great as well. So the next DLC will at least cover 1942/1943? By the looks of the Ferdinants and Panthers we will see some tough Kursk action, i hop...

Re: Grand Campaign East 39-45 Manstein level

;) Welcome to Russia ( almost ). Now things will start to get real exciting, after the somewhat perfunctory first two DLC's. =P Although it seems like those two first campaigns already gave you plenty fight for your money on Mannstein. Now the true game begins, and we can see how (perhaps) Moscow an...

Re: Kriegsmarine - Thumbs Down

I tend to agree with most of what has been said indeed. The game itself does not have any game breaking bugs. It would also be unrealistic to expect every single bug to be removed. Especially with such a small team, and beta-testing indeed taking a significant amount of time. But there are a few thi...

Hmm, although it's not altogether unsurprising i think that it might be misunderstood what some people are trying to say here.

Re: Kriegsmarine - Thumbs Down

Although the need to be attending an annual game dev conference can certainly be understood, that in itself might be one of the problems with this DLC. Nobody can deny truthfully that upon release of the product at the given date there were still numerous bugs with the game that are quite visible an...

Re: Kriegsmarine: Operation Torch (defend the coast)

I forgot to mention this, my mistake. You can (probably?) get the secondary objective if you are playing on difficulty level 1 or 2. Because of the strength of the enemy units being either 6 or 8 your units hold out for some time. I was suggesting my advice at the intermediate level (level 3), the o...

Re: Kriegsmarine: Operation Torch (defend the coast)

It seems this mission is made especially for those people who have clairvoyance and go immediately for Plan Z and Flugzeugtrager. Given the movement of 8 of the bombers they can be exactly on the hex on which the support ship lays. Anything short of 8 movement will be on the beaches on turn 5 and th...

Re: The Hague

;) You will not lose if all the airbases get into enemy hands. Poor paratroopers. Although it is not necessary, maybe an idea would be to use all your forces to go for Rotterdam and nothing else, you might be able to take it within 3 turns? And then you would always have control of a victory hex if ...

Re: Soft Cap

Hmm, to be honest if you were to go into the missions fully blind without any hint, peek, or watched video about the map, then probably you would get wrecked eventually in the grand campaign even on the lower difficulties ( I would probably ). It all depends on how you feel about approaching these g...

Re: Grand Campaign East 39-45 Manstein level

Hmm, i would disagree, although each difficulty poses a different kind of challenge, i would think that either Rommel or Guderian would pose the biggest challenge overall, and Manstein in 39'/40'. Rommel, because even though it's 50% less prestige, the costs for buying and restrength/over strengthen...
