Here are some frightfully useful tips for getting the very best
out of Overlord:
If you complete the campaign before June 5th the CO will put you
on leave until D-Day. If the mission presented by the Spy doesn't suit
you then go to the Planning Room and change it. Rodeo missions where
you can choose your own route are the most useful. If the air activity
starts to get out of hand then try a few tower scramble missions.
Although you can only do one main mission per day you can carry out as
many scramble missions as you like.
Take out the marshalling yards first since this will stop the
reinforcements. Generally you don't need to target the air fields
since dealing with the interceptors alone will keep you busy enough.
Targets are made up of a number of elements. For instance a
marshalling yard consists of buildings and tanks. Take out an element
and the target will be damaged but to actually destroy it you need to
hit most of the others. You'll know when a target is actually
destroyed because you'll see a secondary explosion. It's easier to
damage two targets than to destroy one but you get the same benefit so
on the first mission move quickly from one target to the next getting
at least one hit to cause some damage.
4) Nitty Gritty:
You don't have to waste time getting involved in the nitty gritty
of taking off and landing since it doesn't actually help the campaign.
Use the option on the Planning Room to start in the air rather than on
the ground. Once the mission's completed pressing [Alt]+[X] will get
you back to Tangmere.
In Overlord you can fly any of the allied fighters. You switch
from one lead aircraft to the next by pressing [Ctrl] and   
or . To move to your best buddie's aircraft use [Ctrl]+.
Switching aircraft serves several purposes:
1. If you get shot then switch before you hit the ground.
2. If you are left out of the action then move from
one aircraft to another.
3. If you run out of fuel or ammunition move on.
When you've run out of ammo with a bit of gumption it's still
possible to do some damage. Try attracting the attention of a
small-bore flax site then fly in front of another target. With a bit
of luck you can force an own goal. In general don't bother attacking
flax sites since it doesn't actually help the overall campaign. The
best way to avoid flax is to change direction and altitude every 15
Many WW2 pilots used the term 'Target Fixation'. It means that
the pilot has become blinkered and is concentrating on nothing but his
target. This condition is usually fatal since the pilot either crashes
into the ground or gets jumped by another enemy aircraft. In Overlord
it's easy to get Target Fixation when using the inside and outside
lock views. The way to avoid getting jumped if flying on lock view is
to press [Ctrl] and [F] every so often: this will reset the view to
the nearest enemy aircraft. If the view doesn't change there's no- one
on your tail.
Here are some general rules you'd do well to follow in battle:
1. Dump your fuel tanks before you enter combat.
2. After diving on a target make your escape at low level.
3. Use Combat Boost to regain height as quickly as possible after
attacking a ground target.
4. The airbrakes in Overlord are a bit of cheat because the original
planes weren't fitted with them. Push [B] to activate them.
5. Keep your speed up during combat. It's easy to slow right down
and become a sitting duck.
6. Before starting a dive-bombing run on anything always check
the surrounding area for enemy aircraft. Do this by pressing [Enter]
7. Don't keep Combat Boost on for too long: it will result in
permanent damage. Use max rpm [>] and min rpm [<] to toggle
it on and off.
