Re: sd kfz 135/1 sandstorm

What's so great apart from getting a decent SPG for free and a bit earlier (but not better than the ones available 1943)?

Re: Sandstorm - Core Air Units Vanish??

Yeah, those buttons are sneaky, but once you find out about them, they turn out to be useful for managing a large core. I deploy air units first, then naval (if any), and lastly ground ones.

Re: Sandstorm - Core Air Units Vanish??

My guess is that your air units are not selected for view from the deployment menu. There're 3 checkboxes at the top left of the screen when the deployment menu is open - one for ground, naval, and air units respectively. Sometimes one of them get unselected, giving you the impression your units hav...

Re: Shout to the Oldschool Generals

Actually this post started my search for the oldschool game to play! Well spotted. In there, I saw PG and PG2 and since I've tried PG, went for PG2, but then I learned there's Open General as well which improves a lot on it.

Shout to the Oldschool Generals

Hello Veterans of Countless Virtual Wars! While waiting for the next OOB DLC, could you lend me your expertise/opinion on previous games? I am debating which oldschool "General" game to play, and the current top contenders are Open General (OG) or Panzer General 2 (PG2). Of course feel free to sugge...

Re: Unit Navigator Tool

I checked and it's not that (it used to work before on both browsers). Anyway, I'm not using it for now as I'm not playing so here's to hoping it will fix itself!

I was just curious if anyone else has the same problem as my issue is on two different browsers/computers.

Re: Mixed reviews on steam

I'm pretty sure the reviews on Steam are one of the top metrics that the Publisher/Developer of OOB already use to assess the game's reception. And yes, probably unfair that people who tried the free-to-play content found it insufficient and left a negative review. However, games like OOB can only b...

Re: Different skins

Are all of these historical camouflages or are you experimenting now, kondi? There are so many, it feels like every tank was painted different colour in ww2!

Re: A long beach. With trenches. Sandstorm - Review and Disc

Congrats on a completed campaign! I also found the last few missions on the easy side both due to RP abundance and insufficient enemy strength. Or maybe it's difficult to create ambushes for the players in the dessert like those we had in the forests of Russia/Ardennes? Surprise attacks from the for...

Re: No Rhyme/Reason to Elite Replacements???

Yes - this is not PzC.
No - they do not. Commanders are detachable and not bound to unit. They do impact the amount of experience the unit gains though if the commander adds infantry/mechanical attack, because more damage = more exp.

Re: A long beach. With trenches. Sandstorm - Review and Disc

Cutydt02: - Always bring half of your air CP worth as fighters. Towards the end of the game, I was deploying 5 fighters, and no less than 3 in any other mission that has enemy air. - Use AA - the Italians have the Lancia AA/AT, which is great and I had two of them. - To use them correctly as AA, you...

Re: The Italian Challenge ala OOB

All good ideas! Ultimately, it will have to be something feasible indeed, because all the armour you meet will hurt. The italian anti-AT capabilities are a bit weak in the beginning especially.

The Italian Challenge ala OOB

Now that most of us have finished the excellent Sandstorm DLC, what conditions do you think an alternate "hard mode" replay of the campaign could be used? The North Africa Panzer Corps campaign had an achievement to finish it without purchasing new German units, only Italian ones. This could be tric...

Re: Jubilee

Speaking of Operation Jubilee, I read this fun fact in the wiki of the operation: "On 17 August 1942, the clue "French port (6)" appeared in the Daily Telegraph crossword (compiled by Leonard Dawe), followed by the solution, "Dieppe" the next day; on 19 August, the raid on Dieppe took place.[51] The...
