Re: Loading Scenarios

Thank you for replying. I do have the folder Documents/My Games/Panzer Corp/Scenario with the modified scenarios in it. This is why I am mystified why the game cannot see them because they are there. Pity there isn't a way to make the game point to a particular folder to load a scenario. Is this an ...

Loading Scenarios

I have re-installed PanzerCorps Gold but it cannot find any of my modified scenarios even when I click on 'Custom'. They are listed in the directory but refuse to appear when I want to start a new game. Even when I load an existing scenario in the Editor and then modify and save it with an appended ...

Re: Please help me find scenarios

I do click on Custom. All scenarios are listed except the new ones I've modified. I am hoping that Panzer Corps 2 will make things a lot easier - for one thing allowing loading to point to save locations.

Please help me find scenarios

I have re-installed Panzer Corps Gold. Using the Scenario Editor I modified some scenarios and saved them where they originated with an appended name, except none show up when I attempt to 'Load Scenario' in the game. My Panzer Corps is saved on S:/PanzerCorps and the modified scenarios are under Da...

Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gameplay

Please avoid having support ships at sea having the capability of firing at silly ranges, i.e 50+ miles, i.e. across the entire breadth of Italy, for example.

Scenario Editor issue

The scenario editor in Gold will not load any scenarios at all. I was recently able to edit scenarios but downloaded the updated scenario editor and now I just get a black hex background. Is there a link to get the original (1.02?) version or whatever one came with Gold when it was released?

Re: Why Panzer Corps 2 will fail

Panzer Corps 2 will not fail at all in my view because most fans of the original will probably buy the new release, making it successful in terms of sales and a user base. There is also the fact that the game-playing demographic is becoming older and a lot of folk these days want turn-based, histori...

Re: Replacement 'equipment' file anyone?

I have created some scenarios with 88s in defensive positions but they do not perform very effectively, even if grouped together focused on a killing zone. They may each take out one or two enemy tanks then are easily annihilated. Also, I cannot see how the 88 is less effective later on in the war a...

Replacement 'equipment' file anyone?

I have played through numerous Eastern and Western (excluding desert) scenarios and found the 88 flak/AT pretty useless. In any case, it gets wiped out by almost anything thrown at it while itself accounting for few kills. The firepower of the 88 is at odds with its fearsome and deserved reputation ...

Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gameplay

While playing Panzer Corps I can't see the objectives clearly on the strategic map when units occupy them. It would be handy to have a button to highlight them all during play.

Re: 6-to-1 Sherman vs Tiger

OldFocker is amusing himself posting daily examples of things he thinks are unrealistic, all taken from a gameplay mode that was tacked on decades after this game was designed. There's really nothing to see here. Why don't you get lost. I'm tired of you ever chipping in with disparaging comments. F...

6-to-1 Sherman vs Tiger

In a scenario I was in the situation where I had no heavy tank capable of taking out a Tiger I, just Mk1 Shermans. Despite battering it with artillery for a few rounds it made no difference and none of the Shermans could touch it. This was playing on Limited Dice Chess, which I think gives more real...

Re: Next Year's Releases

Panzer Corps 2 won't be Version 2 of the Panzer Corps we know if that awful 3D sepia video is anything to go by. Rather it will be a new entity altogether, divorced from the original top-down game.

Re: Bias

[quote="turn4441"]Why can't you transport units from France? There are 40 naval transports available at the start of the scenario with 18 of them initially unused and available to take on any units you deploy in France. You just need to have your unit in a port to embark on a transport.[quote] Okay,...

The scenario you describe is a failure of your imagination, not the randomness of the game. Ah, you again. I've a great capacity for imagination thank you.

Re: Bias

Well done on your invasion! I achieved about the same on the standard scenario, although one time I managed to capture parts in the north after dropping paras in the west (only lost one of their three transports to the RAF). They were supported by a couple of units I managed to land nearby once I'd ...

Re: So it seems many would like Steel Panthers next

Just found this thread. Has anyone recent news of a re-make of Steel Panthers (or Steel Tigers)? I played the original years ago but by today's standards the graphics are poor and various issues means it's stuck in 5:4 ratio with very low resolution. Would love to hear the latest on the SP developme...

Re: Bias

Turn chess off, learn to accept and deal with bad luck, and you'll have so much more fun playing the game as designed. I understand fully how random the game can be when, from one crazy experience, a BA-64 drove up and hammered my Tiger I scoring 5-to-1. Now that IS ridiculous, and I am not exagger...

Re: Bias

Yes, it's Sea Lion 42. I found the standard scenario so pointless that I made a few necessary changes, which included more Axis airpower and more landing craft with troops and tanks. During play I purchased 88s on the French coast as there was no AA there at all. I've noted in a lot of games how the...
