What is the actual status of this game?

I'm trying to decipher from the forum what is going on with this game. Is the new version released or not? I find the posts mentioning different version releases confusing - are these referring to the beta? Is it an open beta? I saw a post saying that you can use the serial number from the original ...

Re: Anniversary Coupons

Hi guys, a slight clarification. The registration date is take in this priority: 1. The date you registered for the Matrix members area. 2.

Re: Unable to run mod campaigns

Looks like our posts crossed over here. I tried your suggestion of moving the scenarios out of the mod folder's scenarios subfolder into the My Games/ .../Scenarios folder (it's actually not called that on the Mac - the game installs the folder into the Home directory and not the games folder) and n...

Re: Unable to run mod campaigns

Update: What I've done now is create a dummy mod that exactly replicates the Battle of Britain directory structure but substituting out the contents from the BoB folders with the content from the vanilla campaign. The mod was recognised and ran although none for the objectives text for the Pearl Har...

Re: Unable to run mod campaigns

Regarding a problem with a specifc mod it's better to contact the mod creator, as we at support don't test mods. @VPaulus: At the moment I'm unable to get any mod to run, including the template Churchill mod provided by the developer (the BoB mod works, however, as I mentioned). I don't think this ...

Re: Unable to run mod campaigns

Thanks for the replies. I've raised this with technical support as suggested, but in the meantime I'm still trying to resolve this on my own. @Erik: The only thing I want to mod is the vanilla campaign's structure and add a few scenarios, not change any other parameters of the game. Which directory ...

Unable to run mod campaigns

Hi, I'm unable to get the mod campaigns to run. Battle of Britain works fine, but the Churchill mod doesn't run. It appears on the mod selection screen (alongside BoB and the vanilla campaign), but when I select it the screen just goes black and it doesn't launch (although I can still see the cursor...

Doing something dumb with campaign mods?

When I launch the game I can't see my campaign mods appearing on the mod selection screen. I'm using the (on the Mac) <home>/Order of Battle Pacific/Mods folder, and creating a new folder for the mod there and putting the "campaign" and "scenarios" folder in that, as per the Battle of Britain mod. T...

Achieving secondary objectives after primary

I had a quick look at the manual and on the boards, but couldn't see this: do the scenarios always automatically end when all the primary objectives are captured? I had plenty of time on the clock and some secondaries to achieve but the game ended when I took the last primary.

Has this feature been added yet? I just bought the game and I find it strange I can't bypass areas that I suspect are occupied.

Branches and puzzles? A question about scenarios & campaigns

I'm thinking of buying this game to player over Christmas, but I'm wondering firstly if the scenarios are puzzle-like as some PzC scenarios are, or are there many routes to victory? Also, can you fail in some objectives and still progress to the next scenario in a campaign - going down the losers br...

Is this moddable?

Saw the Twitch for this, and have to say that it looks like a very sweet tactical combat simulator. Although I enjoy eating shrimp as much as the next guy, this would go from "looks cool" to "Best. Game. Eva!" with B5, Star Trek and Wing Commander mods and campaigns (yeah, sure, SW, but you fan bois...

Re: Weak AI

Are there any other views on the AI? I'm not interested in MP so would only buy it if the AI doesn't make glaring, immersion-breaking errors like leaving gaps in the line or exposing weak units.

So, does the scenario editor let me create these branching campaigns, with branches triggered by success or failure in a given scenario, or do I have to wait for a potential future release of an official campaign?

Re: Please convince me this is different from Panzer General

Thanks for all the comments guys (keep 'em coming!). IMO a key difference to PzC is that achieving a certain goal in one scenario can influence later scenarios in that campaign > like "destroy a given number of enemy aircraft!" > "enemy air power weakened in later battle(s)". If you fail in a battle...

That is definitely one of the issues I had with PzC - could you explain the objective variation a bit more?

with video's AAR and twitch feeds Thanks for the quick reply. As I mention in the OP, I've watched the videos and while I can see from them that there is more depth in the mechanics, I'm still not convinced there is "clear blue water" between this incarnation and the previous ones.

Please convince me this is different from Panzer General!

I've only recently been following this game, mostly because it looked like a bit of a PG clone early on and I'm pretty much over that style of game - first played the original SSI version 20 years ago (himem.sys, I still hate you) and many of the incarnations since up until last year. While it was a...
