Re: Can't install Sandstorm

I downloaded directly from the web site, so that would be the stand alone version of the game then, I suppose.

Can't install Sandstorm

I am confused. When I try to install Sandstorm I get the message that an update to 6.1.7 is required. However, when I start the game it says Version 6.1.7 (64 bit) on the splash screen. In fact, I distinctly remember that I upgraded OOB to the current version. What's going wrong?
Thanks,
Thomas

Okay, thanks. I updated OoB, and nothing broke. Excellent :)

Re: Panzerkrieg update problem

Verison number says 5.2.0. I don't want to break anything...

Re: Panzerkrieg update problem

So, I followed the instructions and can play OoB Panzerkrieg now. Everything works as it should. I still get an 'There is an update available' message upon starting the game however. Ignore forever?

Re: Panzerkrieg update problem

Well, it's Monday and hopefully we'll see a solution soon. I don't want to go through multiple installs and re-installs if that is at all possible. Interesting what people did though to be able to play the DLC. Maybe a hint to the developers that interest is high :)

Re: Panzerkrieg update problem

Still doesn't do it for me. Applied the 5.2.1 hotfix, installed Panzerkrieg, finished install normally, doesn't show up on the campaign screen. I already turned the virus scanner off.

Re: Can't install Panzerkrieg

I just noticed that, although I went through the update process, when I repeat that I still get the message that a newer version is available. Something broken with the 5.2 update?

Can't install Panzerkrieg

When trying to install Panzerkrieg I get the message that it requires 5.1.6. I updated the game to 5.2 however, so ist there something I am not getting?

So far 88s have proven themselves as extremely valuable. This for me is the biggest difference so far. I hide them behind infantry or tanks, and when the enemy attacks I fall back, reveal the 88s, and...bang! They are also very useful for destroying fortifications. Another difference is that losses ...

The DLCs do add quite a bit of gameplay. I would play the campaign that comes with Panzer Corps. If you like it you can always buy the additional content.

Thanks again for the hints. I'll restart the 1940 DLC on a lower difficulty setting. I guess I need to go back to bootcamp :)

And yet I have the impression that something is off. How can a Daimler Dingo reduce my Pz. IV by 2, while another Dingo reduces my artillery sitting on a river hex by just one? It appears there is a little too much variance in the combat results. I can't put my finger on it, it doesn't seem right. O...

Thanks for the encouragement. I've managed a marginal win now, at the cost of losing some precious units, though.

Stuck in Arras

For the third time in a row I have failed in the DLC 40 Arras scenario. I have not only failed, my experienced and in some cases heroed and medaled troops were utterly clobbered and eliminated. I do not claim to be a good general. In fact I claim to be a bad general, but I do believe that I set up m...

Total frustration

I have tried the Armoured Charge scenario in the French Campaign numerous times...and I lose every single time. I am about to give up on this game. What tactics do I need to employ in order to win this? Can anybody help?
