Re: Just sharing: why I haven't played one of my favourite games for months...

Maybe someone could record a difficulty level 3 game with victory and post it? Perhaps the method(s) for success at 3 and above is one of those things you have to actually see, go get the light bulb moment? Maybe do the opposite and post one of yours so we can analyze and criticize... (...and help ...

Re: best way to counter superior tanks?

Recovering from low unit efficiency is a problem for me. :) The problem with withdrawing a unit to the rear, dropping it onto a good supply hex, or better still on a city hex, for a few turns is it is out of action and often units being low efficiency is due to frantic defence or offence against th...

Re: best way to counter superior tanks?

Another obvious tactic is to cut off their supply if possible. Same result as artillery/air strike shock damage in that insufficient supply also lowers unit efficiency, a key concept in this game. If I had to put my finger on why inexperienced players have difficulty with OOB, it would be not knowi...

Re: best way to counter superior tanks?

thanks bebro, that is useful. Some I do, some i'm less diligent about (the arty one I am aware of but i'm sloppy doing softening up at times). On the whole, its useful to see it in writing as it helps me be more systematic and disciplined. after thought - i'm pretty sure one of my main play style we...

best way to counter superior tanks?

Hi, I was wondering whether I am missing a trick or two. At certain points in the game, whatever nation or scenario you play, you will find yourself outgunned by superior armour. In a defensive battle I would be pretty cool with this; mines, AT, engineers, ambush, supply, but in OoB, which is more o...

Yeah, the image of the skin is the skin itself and all that's needed for it to work.
Thanks Gabe.

Hello, I'm clearly a complete imbecile, as I've trawled through this entire thread and I can't see a download link for these excellent camo options. - Is it possible to add it (a link or links) into the first post (so we can lays get the latest version?

Just sharing: why I haven't played one of my favourite games for months...

Hi folks, OoB is close to one of my all time favourite games. Over the last several months I have had some free time and don't really have a huge desire to play any other particular game, but every time my mouse hovers over the OoB launch button, I hesitate. This has been going on for several months...

Re: Vote for next dlc

Since Volkskrieg is already on the official list I would guess someone has already started work on it :wink: But I would like to see a British European campaign starting with Norway, the Expeditionary Corps, the struggle for the Atlantic and then Sicily/Italia and Normandy etc. that would be someth...

Re: Order of Battle - 6.1.9

Shards, are you able to say how the Devs fixed the video hitching on the new animated intro a short while back with the latest patch iterations? I know all folks didn't have this problem, it was with a minority, but my intro video was terrible, the stutter made it unwatchable, however the most recen...

What I would Love is the ability to drop a bunch of my favourites into a folder and the game randomly load them up each time I log in.

Re: Order of Battle: Sandstorm will hit the shelves on May 1

Hi, There were no universal changes to the game difficulty settings. I believe that the designer tweaked some of the Panzerkrieg missions post-release to fix some issues, but I don't believe they set about to create an increased challenge like you're reporting? Thanks Shards, then i'm baffled. If a...

Re: Order of Battle: Sandstorm will hit the shelves on May 1

OK, I was a tester, couldn't commit as much time to Sandstorm as I would have liked but didn't pick up on that. It doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to increase the difficulty in older well balanced campaigns as well as beta Sandstorm, just because Sandstorm was playing a little too easy to 'very'...

Re: Order of Battle: Sandstorm will hit the shelves on May 1

Among the fixes and general excitement around Sandstorm, can I ask, have you made the game harder? I'm a little out of practice admittedly, having had a month away, but I have been picking up on some of the other campaigns to finish them off and get some momentum into Sandstorm and I'm getting thras...
