Re: [WISH] Modern Mod

I agree 100% about wanting modern conflicts but I'm not a modder and don't have a clue about creating them. The only post-WW2 BA2 mods I've heard of are Paul59's 'Cold War' skirmish mod which is USA vs Russia just after WW2- http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=221&t=96283 and Rico's 'Ind...

Re: BA2 Bug

..the range I was able to bombard was/is apparently limitless even though the bombardment icon indicates I'm out of range!.. It's normal like Paul said, but if you can tell me which Skirmish mod you were using, and which specific arty units were involved I'll run some tests to double-check to see i...

..the best way to succeed at the game is to induce the enemy units to surrender rather than bludgeoning them to death.
But bludgeoning is more fun..:)
How about it Lawrence?

Re: Is it better to destroy one unit or weaken several?

Which is typically most effective, destroying one unit or weakening multiple units? How do you decide when it's "better" to choose one over the other? Can I assume that the AI has limited prestige in each mission? Depends on the scenario of course , but I usually always gang up on one unit in a fee...

Re: cant update

The launcher screen says I have version 1.01.05. If I try to install the update (patch_panzer_corps_2_1.01.01_(38585)_to_1.01.04_(39593)), it says my game is newer than this version.... 1.01.05 is the latest version, so why do you want 1.01.01 to 1.01.04?

Re: Snow melts every turn

But as a test .. try terrainstate snowy Thats what I use for testing within Unreal rather than setany though it might not work outside of the development environment. No mate that won't work for me. Pity because it means we can't simulate dramatic winter battles in the generator unless a future upd...

Re: Unit scale

Hex size calculation- The WW2 German 105mm artillery piece had a range of about 10,000 yards, and in PC2 their range is 3 hexes which is typical of other nation's 105's too. Using those maths as a rough guide, each hex is therefore about 3,300 yards wide, or almost 2 miles. But as guys have said, he...

Snow melts every turn

When I crank up a random generated battle that I want to play in a winter wonderland, I type the cheat code- setany ground_state Snowy into the chat box (3rd icon from the left at top left of UI) and the terrain becomes white, but only for my turn, it turns green again for the enemy's turn!

Re: Two extra files question

So do we completely ignore them or click on them or what?
If they serve no useful purpose shall we delete them?

Two extra files question

Stupid question- after downloading the update I clicked the top one (below) to install it and it runs fine, but what are those extra 2 files underneath for? Should I touch them or just ignore them? What do they do?

Re: Download of Update 3 for Panzer Corps 2 error message

For me Steam automatically downloads the latest update, it is very convenient :) I've got some games on Steam and it's annoying when I sit down to play a game and the Steam message comes up- "Auto-updating, game will be ready to play in X hours". Ideally Steam should give us the option to turn auto...

Re: Old User Created BA2 SP Scenarios!

..Although it's still much fun and has it's special moments, I never really got used to the low-poly comic book style of the game.. Yeah that's what put me off BA1 too at first, plus the fact that there was no random mission generator meaning I got fed up having to play the same scens and campaigns...

But fortunately there is an easy way to unlock the scenarios. Just open the CAMPAIGN.TXT file in the campaign folder and delete the word CARRYOVER, close and save the file and you are done!
Thanks mate that worked, i'll look through all the scens to see if can find any small fast ones..:)

Re: Old User Created BA2 SP Scenarios!

Personally I've never been a big fan of campaign play in any game because I much prefer small short sharp fast-moving standalone scenarios, so it's a pity some designers lock their scens inside campaigns where we can't get at them. However Order of Battle (and some other games) don't do that, they h...

Thank you Poor Old Spike I finally was able to get the download to work based on your information.

Re: Old User Created BA2 SP Scenarios!

Hi Paul, can we play them as standalone scens, or do we have to play them within campaigns?
For example there are 6 scens in the Alsace campaign, so can we select and play just one of them as a standalone scen?

Re: Looking ahead to Patch 5

Suggestion- Make recon units less slippery I agree with people who've said that recon units are too dangerous in the game because they can slip through ZOCS too easily to get into our empty rear cities and objectives, and we have to drain valuable units from our front line to chase after them. So pe...
