Two Suggestions for a future version...

I've just gotten P&S with campaigns recently (I have had the earlier version for years) and a couple ideas hit me. 1. It would be awesome if the army lists could be selected in a scrollable list rather than clicking again and again and again and again and again..... and again..... and again. It is p...

Re: Battle Academy: iOS future?

Hi Pip, thanks so much for the quick answer. I can understand why updating BA at this point just isn’t cost effective, especially when you put it that way. It is such a shame that Apple has provided no way for people to run their lost software or gain some sort of backward compatibility. I can run A...

Battle Academy: iOS future?

So I know this is a somewhat contentious subject, but I was wondering if there was any chance that BA would be updated to run on the newer iOS versions after Apple’s boneheaded decision to screw their users over and drop 32-bit support? I seem to recall reading that a few programs had been able to b...

Re: Slitherine's fault and responsibility !!!

If I can interject for a moment: while I think that the idea of Slitherine hosting the files is a splendid idea, for reasons that Pip has already stated it is not something they can do unless given permission. So this seems to be the rub: how to encourage more scenario builders to willingly give per...

Re: Amassing Prestige

Don't forget the prestige gained by causing surrenders and especially of high-strength, high-value units. I only realized that you get points for surrenders last night! I feel so stupid.... It has been so many years since I had played PG and AG,but I can’t recall if those games had this function, b...

Amassing Prestige

Okay, I’m not a PG, AG, or PC newbie, but I am flummoxed by something I have been reading on the forums. I’ve been seeing people talk about having accumulated 20k, 30k, and even 40k in prestige! Holy Gaucamole, how does anyone accomplish this? I’m not the most careful player, admittedly, but I’ve ne...

Yeah, the 8.8 is basically a Tiger I tank without its hull.. . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8.8_cm_KwK_36 As proline said, I also usually bring the 8.8 immediately behind the frontline (i.e. protected by infantry or other tanks) and then move it forward to attack in the next turn (maybe then cover...

Re: Will Slitherine give Steam keys t customers losing iOS games

Looking at my 2017 iPAD that is running IOS 10.3 and the corresponding version of the AppStore, most Slitherine apps are still available for download. And they work fine for me aside from the occasional Apple propaganda at app start telling me it needs to be upgraded. I also have an ipAD 4 refurbis...

Re: Will Slitherine give Steam keys t customers losing iOS g

I think something should be done because if nothing is done than I will have to reconsider buying any iOS games from slitherine in the future and many other people likely will too. If we are all being fair, shouldn’t we all be reconsidering whether to pay for iOS games in general? It seems to me th...

Re: Will Slitherine give Steam keys t customers losing iOS g

Guys, we have answered this in considerable detail. The idea that rewriting major chunks of the game, because Apple have stripped out support in the OS, is 'support' three years later is absurd. The game got many free updates, additions, and fixes after release. Almost no other games allow cross pl...

Re: Apple killed CTGW

Not that I know of. I haven’t kept up with my iPad backups or that might have been an option ive read about. As it is I am stuck with iOS 11. I’m so mad! I’ve lost two games and I just know there will be more. Btw, I agree. This might be the end of my love affair with the iPad. It has always been so...

Re: Apple killed CTGW

As an additional note, my apologies to those with whom I recently started MP games. It appears that I won’t be able to continue. This sucks. But for any iPad users who still love these games, DO NOT UPDATE IOS!!!! In re to the now unusable games, will there ever be a patch to make these game usable ...

Well, that’s all she wrote folks. I had just started some MP games, but while I slept my iPad updated to the newest IOS Version and now this game and Pike and Shot won’t run. Actually, I’m not keen to find out just how many of my games, and how much money, has been lost to Apple forcing this upgrade...

The problem is cp has 0 options. They HAVE to go into France.

Re: onpp vs operating 52 turns Match Over

In fairness MP has some pretty gamey stuff, like dissolving all garrisons to flood the battlefield. Everyone talks about Germany doing this, but for me Russia is the really issue. Either way, it is gamey and further unbalances a game that has some clear holes. The shame is that a bit more developmen...

Both further development for the Ipad version has ceased (thanks to Apple, not Slitherene) and user made mods on ...

Re: New iPad games to fuel my addiction....

In 2014 and '15 Slitherine was publishing a lot of their older games for ipad, such as Panzer Corps (2011 PC release) and Commander The Great War (2010?). Now that they have run out of suitable games from that list, the fastest they can put anything new for ios out is when a new PC game comes out, ...
