Re: Update Error: Abnormal program termination

Never mind... I uninstalled it, got the steam key for the main game and all the DLC, and am re-installing it via Steam.

Update Error: Abnormal program termination

I haven't played Panzer Corps since 2015. When I clicked on "Check for Update", update.exe throws a runtime error in the C++ runtime library: "abnormal program termination".

I get the same error when I try to update Allies Corps.

How can I fix this problem?

Re: Global Announcements

It would be nice if the Global Announcements, Announcements, and Stickies all had an expand/collapse button (and were collapsed by default) so that folks who want to keep an eye on those sections can quickly expand them to see what's new, but the rest of us don't have to scroll unnecessarily.

Re: Global Announcements

The global announcements are essentially ads , the use of which has become so gratuitous and frustrating that it tends to make people dislike the products being advertised, without even seeing them. Please, Slitherine, consider adopting the viewpoint that the forums are a resource which should be op...

Ah, so I played it right the first time... Setting up behind the river. Oh well, no harm no foul, I guess!

Re: Panzer Corps - US scenarios much more difficult?

It was bothering me to have almost, but not quite, finished the main campaign, so I went ahead and loaded an old save game, from the end of US East. For US Mid (and West) I used a different strategy for replacements. Instead of elite replacements, I used the free green replacements. I overstrengthed...

Re: Grand Campaign Review

That was a nice review, with some useful gameplay tips in there. Thanks for the link! It sure would be nice if Slitherine would reduce their prices to be more in line with gamers' expectations. This certainly isn't the only reviewer who deducted a significant number of points based on the expense. A...

Re: Panzer Corps - US scenarios much more difficult?

Thanks for the tips guys!!! I was playing on a relatively easy level (so that I could get through the campaign with as few restarts as possible), and I think perhaps the main problem was this: As it has already been mentioned it is imperative *not* to defeat the USSR in 1941. I think my only minor v...

Panzer Corps - US scenarios much more difficult?

I was doing well on most of the scenarios; I think only one of them was something other than decisive victory. All was well, and I invaded East US with about 10,000 prestige in the bank. The East US seemed a lot harder than the previous scenarios. The enemy gradually whittled away at my core units. ...

Better yet, a toggle, so you don't have to keep holding down the key.

Re: City names (suggestion)

I would also love to have city and landmark names. Even the strategic map could benefit from it.

Let's not have this topic die. Let's keep bumping it until either someone makes a mod, or the developers feel enough pressure to implement it themselves.

Re: Upcoming Sales: Second Anniversary

Given that we're less than 2 weeks away from the anniversary (11 July, I believe), does this mean an anniversary sale is unlikely?

Re: Upcoming Sales: Second Anniversary

Yes, I don't really expect them to jump in here and chat with us about it.

However, if they're on the fence about whether to celebrate Panzer Corps' anniversary or not, perhaps this topic will inspire them to go for it!

What's the worst that can happen? A rugged defense?

Re: Upcoming Sales: Second Anniversary

Over the past few weeks there has been a lot of speculation on when Steam's famous Summer Sale will start. This thread similarly speculates about timing and nature of Panzer Corp's anniversary/summer sale. I doubt Slitherine would cancel a sale due to speculation! More likely, if Slitherine wasn't p...

Re: Upcoming Sales

We're nearing the second anniversary of Panzer Corps. Last year's a 33% sale was announced 9 July.

Will there be an anniversary sale this year? If so, will it include AK, the DLC/mega-campaign, or perhaps even Allied Corps?

Re: Town and victory point names

Are UI augmentations such as this addable via mods? Or are Panzer Corps mods primarily edits to the graphics and data files?

Re: Town and victory point names

Can't text be displayed on top of a hex without requiring unique hex art to be generated? Ideally the names would be toggle-able.

Re: Unit types hard to distinguish

Thanks for the tips about the silhouettes. I used to know these things back when I played Panzer General, but have become accustomed to easier UIs. I think with a few tweaks Panzer Corps could be made a lot more accessible to newcomers, whether they are "casual" or not. Changing colors from grey-vs-...

Is there ever a time you don't want to max out units during deployment, assuming you have plenty of prestige?

Re: Unit types hard to distinguish

I like that unit class hover. However, in order for it to work, you need to first click on the unit to examine. This is an extra step.

It would be nice if the unit class would be visible when hovering the mouse over a unit. Is there a mod that can do this?
