Changing Default Nationality? Fri, 28 October 2011 21:52
My Character (avatar) and all its rank is currently German. Is there a way to switch to another country?

That's a great question!! Razz I know that I was able to pick my nationality, and I suspect that you can still change yours, but I just spent about 5 minutes looking for a way to do it and couldn't find anything! Confused

Does anyone remember how to change nationalities? It should probably be fixed to make it easier for players to change this aspect of the game! Smile

I found it...I just wasn't looking in the right place! Smile

To change your nationality, you must enter Memoir '44 Online. Click on the Service Records icon found on the Home screen. You'll enter the Officer Career tab and you'll see your little ID pass and such...right under your ID pass there are a line of badges. By clicking on the badges, you can change your nationality for the game.

Have fun! Sorry it took me a while to find. Very Happy

When I reach the Officer Career page there are a set of badges in a plaque (my achievements), however when I click on them it brings me to the "Achievement" page where it shows a check mark next to the completed achievement. I do not see anything to change Nationality.

Am i selecting the wrong badges?

Thanks for the help!!!

YES!

You need to select from the row of badges directly underneath the IDENTIFICATION PASS, not the ones in your Achievement area on the bottom left of the screen.

Argh! I was looking at the Career tab on the website - not the application. Now I see it!!! Thank you.

I am running in another problem, the application is crashing each time I go to the Career Tab. I have to perform a force quit. I loaded the program on my laptop with the same result. I am running both of these on OSX (mac).

Is there bug with the new update???

Just verified, and the new version is working just fine under Mac OSX, including the Careers page in the app.

I also use a MAC with OSX and have had no problems.

I am using a desktop and not a laptop and don't know it that may be an issue.

Eric,

Are you running Lion? Strange that both my portable and main computer are crashing on this screen. Maybe my data is corrupted when it tries to load achievements. I will play another game to see if this clears it.

Well that did not work out well. Looks like it may not be a bug-but my account data may be corrupted (just guessing) I can not even start a game now.

When I select play a game and then select an official scenario the screen will freeze and I am unable to "Start Game"

This happens on both of my machines. Sad

1) Freezes on Officer Career Page
2) Freezes on Start Game

Any ideas? Can I reset stats?

It looks like my account *IS* corrupted!!! I created another account (note slight change in user name) and everything works like it use to.

Not sure how this could happen. It makes me pause on purchasing gold if this could happen again. Has this happened to anyone else?

Ok now my NEW account is freezing. As soon as i received some achievements it will lock up. Mad

I have submitted a support claim and upload my output.log file. Noticed that there are many errors in it.

Oh well.
