Bulge on PC Crashing to Desktop

I posted about this on the Steam forums and a nice fellow told me to post my log file here. Basically, my copy of Battle of the Bulge, which I bought through Steam, crashes every time I start the tutorial or a new game. Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Repairable captured units

I don't dispute the logic of being unable to repair captured units, but I wish I could at least sell them (or any other units) for prestige. Failing that, it would be nice if upgrading them to a normal, repairable unit were a lot cheaper - most of the time, my captured units ended up being useless a...

Re: Allied: D-Day

I'm not sure I"m reading the briefing correctly - do we only need to hold/prevent from switching the bridge in the east, marked with the victory marker? Or do we also need to take and hold the bridges further west?

You're correct, oops. I forgot to uninstall the previous version before installing Beta 4.

Re: Allied: Sicily

I captured all the victory hexes by turn 23 on Sicily, but the scenario refuses to end. My best guess as to why is that I left Licata, a non victory hex, uncaptured in my rear. It seems like victory should come when you've captured all the victory hexes, not all of the marked hexes on the board that...

NDA?

I haven't seen this posted elsewhere, so I thought I'd ask before I opened my big mouth and got into trouble.

Is there an NDA in effect for beta testers? If I wanted to share some teasers or impressions through my blog, would that be OK or a no no?

Re: Allied: Tunisia

A large part of it is personal preference, of course. As far as I know there aren't any UK/USA specific scenarios. And I don't trade in UK units, I buy new American units to fill out the core, and start getting them some experience ASAP. This game rewards better unit stats, but you'll have to get s...

Re: Did Anyone Else Want Other Nationalities in Their Core?

One of the things I was most looking forward to when Allied Corps was announced was being able to create crazy cores with all sorts of different nationalities. I was fairly disappointed to find out that you can have only British/Americans (though it is nice that you can have them both at the same t...

Re: Fort Carpuzzo

I played this scenario a second time, this time as a standalone just for kicks.

I had completely captured Capuzzo and destroyed all the units by turn 14 or so, but the scenario didn't end until all the turns were used up. Odd.

Re: Allied: Tunisia

I'm coming at this scenario from the British campaign. The American units are pretty much useless at this point, with no experience they are definitely a liability. It will be a long way for them to become combat effective. I haven't actually tried the scenario yet, I'm idling in the deploy phase wh...

Re: More control of unit movement

Yea a waypoint system could work. Just a few ideas of how it could be approached. Does anybody else feel they would like to have more control of their unit's movement? I concur - it would be nice if I could pick how a unit gets from A to B. I frequently kick myself whenever a unit is stopped short ...

The Recommended Reading Thread - North Africa

What books and websites about the North African campaigns do you recommend? I've found this website - http://www.desertrats.org.uk/battles1940.htm - which provides an entertaining narration of the battles of 1940. I can recognize many of the battles from the DLC in here, which is rather nice. I don'...
