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,...

Re: Bias

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...

Re: Bias

I'm a test nut so I jumped at the chance to test it out in the Editor and I found that the 109G's bust the Spit 1's derrieres in every test! I can only assume the planes in Sea Lion 2 have been somehow tweaked by the scen designer. (Where is SL2 anyway? I can't find it and I'd like to open it up to...

Bias

I found it odd that it takes five ME109G to take down one Mk1 Spitfire. Yup, in Sea Lion 2 when playing Axis each ME109 will account for just two Spitfires so I have to put 5 onto 1! This is ridiculous. Yet when I played the Allies, guess what? When my Mk1s were attacked by the ME109Gs they accounte...

Re: Where to find Panzer Corps expansions and DLC

I would say C minus three times for the menu system. It has to be the one of the most Cluttered, Convoluted and Confusing systems ever created.

Pz Corps Gold - Aircraft & AA cease targeting

Playing Sealion for the Allies, on turn 3 my aircraft could no longer attack any enemy targets, ground or air, and my AA guns didn't function either! This also occurred in an Eastern Front scenario but I can't recall which one. I must also point out an incongruity in that having played both sides in...

Creating own units//armies?

I bought this game probably misinterpreting some of the sales spiel. My aim was to create/edit my own units of the Northern Crusades 1147-1410 and fight small battles reminiscent of the tabletop games I ran for 15 years up to 2001. As far as I see it isn't possible to do this in Field of Glory. Is t...
