Re: Do you use recon and anti air units in the GC?

In the GC, I have not used Recon or AA units unless I was awarded them for free. They use up core slots better used otherwise. Recon units have simply no chance of survival, unless you use them very, very cautionary, but if so, they offer no advantage over the +1 Sight tank unit that you will acquir...

Re: Strafing enemy units with fighters = pointless?

Basically I feel the same, but most of the time there were targets without any air defense to attack.

Re: What are you playing now?

I have just finished the GC East and I must say that I have had enough to all these unending masses of Russian tanks thrown at me. I tried to play the DMP Pazifik Corps campaign, disliked the graphics and experienced technical problems and thus decided not to bother with Mods anymore. I am unsure wh...

Re: City names (suggestion)

Seconded. This would be a really good idea, since it makes the maps become much more alive and also helps with our grasp of geography ... really.

Re: Things you do while playing Panzer Corps.

Trying to surveil the kids acoustically and prevent them verbally from doing irreparable damage to the house, while I should actually watch them. Letting them watch me playing hasn't been such a good idea, since in the kindergarden, for whatever reason, they don´t consider the ability to differentia...

Re: Special Heroes: Hans Rudel

As a probably unique feat among WW2 pilots, Rudel even downed one minister of defence, who had to resign after he allowed the Nazi to appear at a Bundeswehr event in 1976. :-)

Re: Rail hub rule change proposal

I think it is realistic that even infantry cannot dismount. I know most of you think of infantry as just foot soldiers, but that is not even close to the truth. We're talking about roughly bataillon sized units here. They have heavy equipment, machineguns being only the lighter stuff. They have mor...

Re: Special Heroes: Hans Rudel

Now that I understand this I am keeping my Rudel#1 for now. I gave him a Me-110 instead of his Ju-87 and so far he is performing well as an armed recon plane with a spot of 4. As with others, I, too, have the feeling that the presence of Rudel#2 does affect game balance slightly, as does the special...

Special Heroes: Hans Rudel

I am playing GC 39-45 under 1.14. From time to time scripted units appear in the core, which is a good thing. What I didn´t really get is the story or reasoning behind the Hans Rudel "storyline". I only now discovered that I have two Ju-97 units in my core with a hero named Rudel, one with a disturb...

Re: Rail hub rule change proposal

What I found irritating when using rail transport for the first time in pC was the complete lack of a possibility to dismount from a train outside a city, especially with regard to infantry. Armed soldiers calmly waiting in their waggons and watching enemy tanks approaching, firing on them, without ...

Re: Mega pack discounts

Hey, this sounds like a great opportunity to continue the Grand Campaign. I bought a German boxed version, a bundle which included GC39-42. I am pretty sure that I registered the base game, but I have no idea whether I registered the GCs. Can you see somewhere which games you have registered ? Besid...

Re: Spanish Civil War DLC?

Well, the No Pasaran campaign would be the prequel to the Soviet campaign, would´t it ? It doesn´t always have to be the Legion Condor. We already had that in PG2. I still fondly remember one fan made PG2 campaign which started in Spain and allowed me to nurse a unit of International Brigades infant...

Re: GME with German Panzer Coirps

Thanks for the tips! Your guide helped me understand the folder structure of Panzer Corps, a lack which caused the mistake. The guide is pretty easy to understand.

Anyway, regarding the campaign, in the first scenario, there are no victory conditions. Is that intentional ?

GME with German Panzer Coirps

I don´t seem to be able to use GME to import campaigns. I have the German Panzer Corps installed, at 1.11, with GC39-42. I tried to import the IJA Campaign, two files. When I press start, nothing happens. When I start the GC, I see GC briefings, German units, GC maps, but IJA tiles. Am I doing somet...

Re: Panzer Corp - How win Wassigny?

The German briefing seems to have a mistake here: it advises you wrongly to bring him to the very southwest of the map.

Show difficulty level or Does Barbarossa start easy ?

I just started GC41 and wanted to play it on Field Marshall level. Now I am on the Smolensk map and it feels really easy. I mean, really easy. I have about 4.000 Prestige and have upgraded all my units. Now, either this is intentional, to lure me into false security. Or I have not chosen Field Marsh...

Start without Video and Sound

Is there a command line parameter (like, say, -novid or -nosound) to start the game without the intro or sound ? It´s not a big deal, but the video, as nice as it may be, makes a lot of unnescessary noise giving away what is happening at the computer .... :)
