Battle of Britain freezes on start briefing screen

Post by RyeMacD » Sat Sep 19, 2015 12:35 pm

B of B freezes when I click on 'start briefing'. Hope someone can suggest a fix. This looks awesome and I really want it to work. Please help.

The path to your My Documents folder looks weird:
"Couldn't open file /\\psf\Home\Documents/My Games/Order of Battle - Pacific/Mods/The Battle of Britain/Scenarios/UnitDemo/voice_intro.ogg"

Do you have some special setup for this?

What might help you out is if you delete all .ogg files from the "Documents/My Games/Order of Battle - Pacific/Mods/The Battle of Britain/" folder (including subfolders).

Why aren't you running the Mac OSX version and instead prefer to run the PC version on Mac Parallels?

I used a windows lap top for a lot of gaming. I no longer have the laptop. How could I get the OS X version now?

Hi
I have the exact same problem.
I have the game on Steam, fully updated.
When I try to launch Battle of Britain campaign or any scenario the game freezes and only a restart of the PC makes it possible to even use my PC.
I have installed the game on both my laptop and desktop with the same result.
What is the solution here?

Delete all ogg files that you find at:
\Documents\My Games\Order of Battle - Pacific\Mods\The Battle of Britain\Scenarios\BattleOfBritain
and
\Documents/My Games/Order of Battle - Pacific/Mods/The Battle of Britain/Scenarios/UnitDemo/

Run the game and check if the issue persists the game.

Great that did the trick, almost
Both the scenario and the campaign can now start up, but both freezes and crash the game a few minutes into the game.
I again have to restart my PC before I can do anything on it.
I have added a new Output.log file. Maybe you can see what is wrong now.

It seems that your system crashes everytime the game loads any of the specific mod sounds, ogg or wav.
Please open the Sounds folder and rename both sounds, StukaSiren.wav and StukaSirenB.wav, as _StukaSiren.wav and _StukaSirenB.wav.
These files can be found at your Windows documents folder:
...\Documents\My Games\Order of Battle - Pacific\Mods\The Battle of Britain\Sounds
