Re: Information Unreadable

Not only atari, also C64 and amiga/early IBM PC.
It´s a classic in fact, one of the best Gary Grigsby games.
And it has large, friendly letters, which is sorta no-brainer.

Re: Information Unreadable

Hardly. I´d rather play Kampfgruppe.

The graphics may be a bit dated; :) but the information is readable.

Re: Information Unreadable

I think it´s sloppy, tbh.

There is a lot of info in so many games, but it´s usually accessible. This feels more like OOB not really caring about the numbers and detail.

You got me wrong. I was talkin about THIS:

Re: Information Unreadable

I am also using 1920x1080, but tried to use a lower resolution which didn´t help. But if you compare the two pics, you see it´s actually a design decision in OOB to make text/numbers font and interface/message boxes as small as possible. Worst thing to do imo and my #1 reason to deinstall a game. Co...

Re: Information Unreadable

For a comparison: This is how information should be presented (from XCom).
Notice that you can easily read the text and numbers even in the downsized picture, because of the large font size and high contrast.

Information Unreadable

I tried the free version, but will now deinstall after first tutorial. Text and numbers in the interface and text boxes are unreadably small. Was simply painful to play. Sorry.

Re: OOB vs PC2 game mechanics

Thanks; bootcamp tutorial sounds good, because the time investment isn´t that big. My fear is that both games are a bit too close to Wh40k Armageddon which was my biggest disappointment, game-wise, of the past few years. No problem with the graphics or the story, but practically no carry-over of suc...

Re: OOB vs PC2 game mechanics

I have played neither (so far) and I don´t have time to learn both; so I am obviously interested in the comparison. Most important question for me: Which is closer to the original 5 star series? Especially regarding army management. I want to be able to get ahead of or fall behind the curve; thinkin...

Re: Anticlimactic?

I sense you know this the next time someone suggests PC2 represent Nazi's more and the reason it isn't is because people have become more stupid over the years that your Slitherine's representative offers a firm no instead of encouraging the discourse. The excellent "Why We Fight" US propaganda mov...

Re: Anticlimactic?

Some nations have learned from the past, and that it is more important to protect the dignity of humans than to hold on to an absurd concept of every speech being equally valid. Other nations sadly have not, and you can see where that has led to in places like the USA, whare racism is rampant and f...

Re: I miss generic heroes

You can always limit yourself to 1 hero per unit. In fact I'm pretty sure you could mod that in too so you aren't even tempted. This is what I do & you can also force that to be the case via the 'Rules' file. I like that this game allows for the player to decide how he/she wants to play within the ...

it gets far far uglier than that.
Uglier than Coventry, Katyn, Dresden, Malmedy, Hiroshima, etc etc? I don´t think so.
Yes, uglier than that (except perhaps Hiroshima). Way uglier

The practice was changed, that is true, but depicitions of swastikas were allowed for education or art, so a school book was not a problem. The problem was the definition of art, since computer games did not count as art.
I see. So they didn´t understand the concept of infotainment. :roll:

Re: Anticlimactic?

Actually, it did. Everybody -including the Western Allies- occasionally murdered pows, pretty much everybody bombed civilians, then of course partisan and antipartisan warfare was very ugly etc. And don't forget all the rapings of civilians and pillaging. it gets far far uglier than that. Uglier th...

Re: Anticlimactic?

Germany changed that practice recently from what I remember, it should be allowed here now in correct context. This is true. Before, it was not clear if you could even depict a swastika in a history textbook. :lol: Now you can, but it´s still not clear with a game. You might have to argue that Panz...

The Empire in Star Wars destroys entire planets -probably billions dead!-, so does that mean no Star Wars games or no playing the Empire, because Palpy is evil? :D I'm 100% pro Empire.

The Nazi's murdered 6-10MM innocent Men, Women & Children and no venue (game or otherwise) in any way should ever trivialize that.
