In patch 1.6.7 we've added some new historical events in the campaign. The Japanese campaign is missing 2 images for these however, which can cause an unclosable event popup.

To solve this problem, place these two images in the Japanese campaign folder (right click > save as ...):

Steam:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Order of Battle Pacific\Order of Battle - Pacific_Data\Resources\Campaign\1Japan1941

or

Slitherine:
C:\Slitherine\Order of Battle Pacific\Order of Battle - Pacific_Data\Resources\Campaign\1Japan1941

Right Click on each of the pictures in the original post. Use "Save Image as" or "Save link as".

Save them to a folder (downloads is usually the folder that is default, but it does not matter. You can even save them to Desktop if you wish. Just make sure you can find them after you save).

Then copy them both over to the ...\Resources\Campaign\1Japan1941 Folder.
The will be named: event_burma_invaded.png AND: event_doolittle_raid.png

Use the PATH for the game you have, either Matrix/Slitherine or Steam.

Steam:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Order of Battle Pacific\Order of Battle - Pacific_Data\Resources\Campaign\1Japan1941

or

Slitherine:
C:\Slitherine\Order of Battle Pacific\Order of Battle - Pacific_Data\Resources\Campaign\1Japan1941

There's me thinking I found the fix, but I have the string up to Resources, but there is no campaign folder. Help!

Managed to make do with the screen scroll problem, however, suffered the same FREEZE with the message about Batan. Read you techy stuff and am clueless about how to fix the problem. I saved the pictures but the remained of the message is jibberish. How about another patch that fixes your screw ups. Making people who pay money for these games work on Matrix's issues is lousy customer service.

Maybe I can help. Where is your game installed? In which folder?

Thanks for the response. I sent a help ticket in and received the same set of instructions. I cleared everything out and reinstalled the game from the disc and am playing without the upgraded patch. I will wait for the next patch which hopefully contains the solutions to both problems. The thing which was bothering me the most was the assumption that everyone playing is tech competent. Sadly, I admit I am not even remotely interested in how thing like computers, software, cars, toasters, et. al. work or in DYI projects. At my age(71) my interest is a good bourbon and blowing up my fictional AI enemy. Again, thanks for the offer.

You're going to have to provide more information then, because it's working for (almost) everyone else.

Where did you install the game to (folder path)? And can you confirm the images are NOT present in the 1Japan1941 campaign folder?

Installed and reinstalled to:


C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Order of Battle Pacific\Order of Battle - Pacific_Data\Resources\Campaign\1Japan1941
and the pictures are there. Also tried the hot fix and removing the two pictures and physically placing into the same file. Still has a freeze. Thanks for your help.

A word of sympathy for potters, at 65 years of age, I too am totally incapable of following any but the simplest tech advice. However I must say I do think the support is generally of the highest quality, and (for me at least) never ignored. I founf Lucas hotfix for the Bataan problem worked fine. Though I had already deleted my saves, just restarted the campaign, and the problem had disappeared. Simply right clicked, and downloaded, took a couple of seconds. Do try again, is it possible the download was so quick, you didn't accept it? Good luck, keep up the good fight old chap

might be a bad save, as if your half way through something then patch, then patch again, it may or may not get everything sorted, as clean start does seem to fix many things and tbh it's a game so your going to be playing it over and over again anyway, so one or 2 restart for me is no big deal...

then again it just could be something else altogether

so a logfile or save may help more, with a dxr report thrown in for good measure

Hmmm. After several futile attempts to resolve the freeze I have managed the following: Ah ......... and then there was ...! With each attempt I added another finger of bourbon. Perhaps, therein lies the dilemma. Onward and upward. I shall shelve this game as a bad investment and go back to A World at War: a World Divided. Too bad this has not been the recipient of numerous expansions. (I couldn't get the "deluxe" update to work either.) After Axis & Allies(the Holy Grail)I feel it is one of the best war games ever produced. Anyway thanks for the help.

Too bad you're giving up on this game, but I see your frustration.
Check the forum once in a while and download the next patch when it is available.
Then do a complete uninstall/reinstall.
