Re: Is it just me...

I have played OOB for a long while and do enjoy the game and campaigns very much. I replay them in as many different ways I can. My point is this. My troops have always fought valiantly :shock: , overcome the enemy :lol: , destroyed them in fact :evil: , kept a good source of supply and have progre...

Re: Order of Battle: World War II - v8.0.4 is available

I'm a Steam user and got the Red Star first mission in error. Whilst teh devs will likely be livid, this is probably teh best PR they coyuld have got, The game exp played very well and was such fun, now I'm really looking forward to the Soviet campaign, plays very differently. Yes, uhm, great that ...

@Kerensky: The man who created the Grand Campaign for Panzercorps will always be on my good side. :D

And for HBalck, well, he has worked very hard for his current standing.

@PatrickWard: You're welcome. That guy is really something. He has some mannerisms which thankfully make him pretty easy to spot. It is mostly his garbled English and trashtalking. After a while, he cant help himself to post some of his off-brand work to get views. The hours he puts into this withou...

Re: Next DLC?

Something intrigues me in your words. If the console port team is a new team different from the original devs team so the console port team has to start from scratch knowing nothing about the original code ? I doubt that they start from scratch and that there is no communication between the teams. ...

Re: Next DLC?

I remember that the console port team and the original devs were two separate teams. And the console market is also separate from the PC market. So timing releases here does not make much sense to me, at least with the few tidbits that I know. My guess with the delay has more to do with the growing ...

Re: Next DLC?

Guys, just a quick reminder before this gets derailed and ugly: Let's keep this a friendly discussion among international friends who share a harmless fun hobby. Discussing history is fine, being impolite not. (Of course, nobody is impolite around here. We are all friends.)

Re: Does simulating history matter in OOB?

I wrote only what would have to be done to make OoB consistent with realities and above all more logical, but I don't have great illusions that such changes will be introduced. For me, the game doesn't matter, because I modify it for myself I think everyone noticed that I stopped submitting my prop...

Given what Gabe said, I am now envisioning those three in the quicksand as Field Marshal Rommel and two high-ranking aides: "Sich beeilen, verdammt deine Augen!" That doesnt work. 'Hurry up, damn your eyes' (right?) does not have a corresponding idiomatic phrase in German google translate can neatl...

I can't reproduce it either. Reloading this turn-save also won't let them sink in anymore. :(
Thanks for sharing that anyway, Horst. Rather funny. "Herr Leutnant, wirf uns ein Seil!" :)

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

Second offensive, 3.8, 12 turns in and I am wondering if this is bugged. Last playthrough I remember here (and in the original), you fall back towards El Agheila, try to save as many aux units as you can, then get resupplied and counterpush. This time however, I instantly lose my air supply near El...

Instead, the British werent fazed by the obliteration of their supply and mounted an even more powerful offensi...

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

Dash to the wire 3.8: Just took a quick look and did some deployment. The jump in Italian core numbers is massive and I feel that you can make a lot of mistakes buying the wrong equipment. And it does add massive amounts of rather fresh and anonymous units to your roster, which dilutes your core ar...
