Re: Next DLC?

Ah yes, life imitating art. I have curious blind spots with spelling for some reason. For the longest time I was sure prowess was spelled prowness, which even now seems more logical to me. As for a US / Canada conflict, all I can say is "You can take our lives, but you will never take... OUR POUTINE!"

Re: Strange Graphic Appears on every move or action

Once or twice I've seen units turn giant too. Definitely caught me off guard the first time it happened.

Re: Next DLC?

It's been a while but I seem to remember Panzer General having a Nazi invasion of the US stage. Maybe it was Panzer General 2... Anyway why not an optional bonus Soviet invasion of the US? Now THAT would be one they didn't see coming! You could call it Red Dawn :D Although the thing is, to do justic...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Yeah I've asked the same question myself about whether I need to buy additional dlc to access custom stuff, apparently the answer is no thankfully. They're quite generous! Although if you do buy additional dlc I liked the blitzkrieg / panzerkrieg /endsieg campaigns a lot. Are you having success in P...

Re: OOB vs PC2 game mechanics

Although I'm curious about Panzer Corps 2, my laptop is too ancient to run it. Might upgrade one of these days... I do play Order of Battle and Panzer Corps though. Well I used to play Panzer Corps. Ultimately I grew frustrated with PC's emphasis on constantly rushing. You have all these mechanics f...

Re: Strange Graphic Appears on every move or action

Huh so that's what the deal is. Since it never really impacted gameplay I ignored it, although it is kind of annoying. And the advice about fiddling with zoom works pretty well.

Re: Multiplayer - Would you change anything?

I never should have grabbed those custom scenarios because now I'm addicted :D Look even more like a zombie than usual... One curious thing I noticed was that certain games will be unplayable, supposedly because of a lack of the requisite map but (I think, since I have the maps and they work fine fo...

Re: Upload turn in PBEM but doesn't register.

Hee hee, yeah turns take forever in the Russia campaign. Part of the fun! It's a little shorter if you play as Germany I think, since Russia has what feels like an infinite amount of cannon fodder clogging up railways. I was planning to take on Dzin (who consistently destroys me in Dubno) in The Roa...

Re: Yours favorite movies about WWII

Sorry, I'm the one who went off on a tangent regarding the topic. Everyone did their bit after all. I haven't seen Hacksaw Ridge, some of Mel Gibson's stuff gets a little too gruesome for my tastes. Doesn't mean it's bad though! Galipoli was a fantastic film for example. Hmm. Makes me wonder about A...

Re: Upload turn in PBEM but doesn't register.

I've had that issue manifest on rare occasions myself. Pretty sure it's related to wonky internet pipes (my router going on the fritz for example). Just crossing my fingers it doesn't happen with my current Russia Campaign game, since a single turn takes more than an hour! On the topic of multiplaye...

Re: Yours favorite movies about WWII

Yeah I'm not so petty as to disparage anyone who contributed (apparently my own country of Canada had a sizeable navy at the time) but it really seems unfortunate how people disregard the Soviet role. It's true their record is more, ahem, "complicated" than that of the other allies but that hardly n...

Re: Erik's campaigns

I've been trying to play the Germany 39 campaign and getting destroyed on the first mission, which is fine since I'm not that good :) One thing, I noticed an optional objective was to destroy all enemy land units. Got it down to 4 (my best yet!), but then I noticed there were actually five Polish la...

Re: Yours favorite movies about WWII

Speaking of The Battle of Britain, I was listening to a BBC classical music program that played the soundtrack. They've also got a podcast about the development of the spitfire, not sure if I'll give it a listen or not. I'm a bit irked about a poll (can't find the source but I think it was in The Gu...

Re: The Russian Campaign 1v1

Hee hee, I just lost a match in that sandstorm map actually. All credit to the player that beat me, he took an early lead in victory points and I was never able to make it up. Anyway I look forwards to our next game, and seeing how much fun it is on Ivan's side for that matter.

Re: Yours favorite movies about WWII

Huh never heard of that one. Apparently it's a made for tv movie, but then again Das Boot was originally a tv series itself. Anyway I forget the title but a couple years back there was a movie about German POWs being forced to clear mines at the end of WWII. Let's see if google can come to the rescu...

Re: "Official" Community Content

I thought it was just my mistake thinking certain multiplayer maps were inaccessible because I didn't buy a relevant dlc, but after trying to get another player to join me in The Russia Campaign I discovered I'm not the only one. I wonder if it would be possible to add a little mention of how to obt...

Decided to try hosting my own game of this in version 2.4, and it's good! Well it's good if you're Germany and it's turn one anyway, heh. As the description says, I look forwards to seeing how things develop further down the road... If anybody feels like playing as Germany themselves, I'm up for giv...

Re: Order of Battle: the new Import tool

Yeah I've been wondering about balance issues with importing experienced units from previous campaings. Doesn't it cost more to repair a damaged veteran unit? That might go some way to redressing the concerns. And I tried playing your custom campaigns, they're too brutal for me :) Even on the "easy"...

Re: The Russian Campaign 1v1

I notice there's a game waiting in multiplayer for this, but it's version 2.3. Looks like the only version I can download here is 2.4, so... I'm out of luck? Also I didn't know you designed scenarios Parriego. Was it really you I managed to beat in coral sea, because if so now I know that was defini...
