Re: Rostov mission always end in defeat.

Thanks once again, Bru. :) I don't remember there ever being two different colors in the name plaques like that in other dlcs. Probably there has not been two friendly factions owning the hexes in a similar fashion. Or at least causing such a bug.

Re: Rostov mission always end in defeat.

Rostov is the 12th and penultimate scenario of this DLC. It is always more difficult to find bugs in the latest scenarios. True and I agree. Like I said earlier the comment was of the general lack of quality control in DLCs. Some of the bugs and omissions are so obvious that it is puzzling, how the...

Re: Rostov mission always end in defeat.

Each to his own, but for me - and I suspect to many others - it is the campaign which is the main attraction of OoB. Without campaigns my interest to this game would be zero. Yes, it is true some of the bugs only happen in a campaign. Those are often related to various campaign variables and somethi...

Re: Rostov mission always end in defeat.

True, this particular oversight may be difficult to spot, but your report once again only strengthens my trust in your CSI skills. :) Incidentally, I was not referring to this DLC only, but to all of them. Unfortunately quality control is lacking - sometimes more, sometimes less. The missing languag...

Re: Im so confused

Spike's Lab always brings you valuable info. :)

Maybe one more possibility: town on river w/bridge, though it is probably the same with or without.

Re: Rostov mission always end in defeat.

I've never heard of john Connor in OOB. It is one of the console codes: #johnconnor disables AI // AI-turns are basically skipped I don't understand why Slitherine/Artistocrats continues to release these DLCs in such an unfinished state, when there is a simple fix available: just hire master Bru to...

Re: Tablet use?

OoB is not available for Android or iOS, so it is not possible. The only sort of a similar solution is a 2-in-1 PC (convertible) like the one presented by terminator above, but it is actually a PC with touchscreen.

Re: Which USB ports?

Is it possible to buy an adapter or something at the monitor end that would allow me to buy a second HDMI cable so that I could keep both cables plugged into the monitor so I wouldn't have to keep switching? Yep. You just need an HDMI Switch. There are many, many models available. Another possibili...

Thanks guys you've cleared up the mystery of USB's..:) Can I now ask you to do the same with the other ports in these screenshots of the back of my PC and the underside of my monitor? Certainly. :) This is your new PC, right? Anyway, here goes: 1) The port in the upper pic is connected to the crapp...

Re: Which USB ports?

This raises the question- Why don't PC manufacturers make ALL the ports blue? USB2 costs less is probably the #1 reason. It also takes less space on motherboard and uses less power and bandwidth. Like I said and also Bebro noted, with many peripherals there is no need for better than USB2. Modern P...

Re: Which USB ports?

Hi, PC dummy here again- I only accidentally found out recently that some of the USB ports on our PC's are better than others, so how do we know which ones to plug our mouse,keyboard and other stuff into for best performance? USB 3 ports are blue (it is in the specs). They are much faster than USB ...

Re: Quicksand!

Well, idioms are really hard to translate and you have to know both languages very well to do it properly. While good otherwise, Google can't usually do that. Try for instance "er will immer eine Extrawurst gebraten haben." :lol:

I second Andy's recommendation: Das Boot is excellent. :)

Thanks, Gabe. :) And yes, Leutnant should be a valid rank in the Wehrmacht. On the other had, the SS had their own.

Re: Self-propelled anti-tank units (SPAT)

Yes, and incidentally I'm not a big fan of SPAT's of any nation because their armour is usually thinner than tanks and they haven't got a turret, and some are open-topped, so give me a "proper" tank every time....:) Well, they sure are not tanks but I'm glad in OoB they can support other units just...

Re: Self-propelled anti-tank units (SPAT)

( Footnote - the only glaring omission I can see is that the British Archer is not in OOB, it was the only SPAT the Brits had, it was a slow mover but packed a helluva punch with its 17-pounder AT gun) Indeed and it was great in ambushes because of the unique design (gun faced rearward). Brits shou...

Spike's OoB 101 -courses are very useful for all new players. :)

I don't think I've ever seen insta-deaths in OoB except when the AI decides to test what is shown above. :twisted:
