Re: Overstrenght AI units Afrika Korps

Its simply a decision of the scenario designer. He doesn´t have to follow the rules, he makes them ;-)

Seriously, this happens from time to time and may represent different things - especially big units, especially strong units, units the player has to avoid, units the player cannot beat.

Re: DLC Campaign 45 East rant

As far as I remember, you can deploy units bought during the game all over the map, even around victory hexes already captured. As soon as you have slots open - which happens quite soon, as you have noticed, you can use this for excellent diversion. Drop a few recons behind the enemy lines to make t...

Re: DLC Campaign 45 East rant

I also found it a bit tiring that nearly every scenario seemed to be the same. Always defending against these enormous masses of Soviet tanks. They should have thrown in a few side quests for variety. Also, the scenario design forces you - or forced me, that is - to go with an All-King-Tiger core. N...

Re: A community update for Armageddon!

this could be done with a pair of traits like "Flyer" and "AA". "Tank" and "Anti-Tank". the "Tank" trait is just a marker for units and don't have any effect. the "Anti-Tank" trait is for weapons and gives double accuracy against units with "Tank" trait. and that's it. it's not complicated (at leas...

Re: A community update for Armageddon!

There seems to be a problem. During briefings, choices don´t seem to work correctly anymore:

Both should appear in one box, now they appear in two boxes, which pop up one after the other. You can´t choose the first variant.

Looks like it works again. I could download it. I couldn´t test it yet since it not only took ages to download it, but it seems to take even longer to unzip the package. I guess I need new hardware one of these days ...

Re: Yours favorite movies about WWII

Just saw 9. april / April 9th yesterday. It is about a small unit of Danish bicycle infantry in the first hours Operation Weserübung - the invasion of Danmark. It focuses on quite a few soldiers, but also depicts their perception of the bleak strategical situation. I think the movie is very historic...

Re: 1941 - Best MP scenario!!! UPDATED JAN 2nd 2017

As a single player scenario it starts out interesting, until the AI ruins the scenario by spamming the whole of Russia with BT-5 tanks, while the UK thwarts Sea Lion by cluttering the beaches with Vickers tanks. :(

Hey, yes. That worked. It looks a bit different, a bit smaller, but still, it seems to work. Any idea how I get to take convoy hexes with German submarines ?

Re: 1941 - Best MP scenario!!! UPDATED JAN 2nd 2017

When I start the single player game, I cannot move any ship. They work just fine in other scenarios.

Ok, I understand that the latest version for download here is broken with the exception of the MP map. Has somebody fixed the SP maps as well ?

78. Gladiator, Silver, wasn´t that hard. Gladiator, Gold, will take some time, though.

Re: Steam Achievements

77. I just made GC39 on Manstein. Especially the urban polish scenarios were a drag. Infantry backed up by str 17 artillery is very hard to crack. Str 15 AA guns allow no mistakes. Now I need to finish a few MP scenarios. Only I will probably never achieve the GC reward. I don´t think I will play it...

Re: Your very own Horten HO 229

God damn. That game was made in 1991. It still feels like yesterday. And you are right, I, too, should not have googled for it. The graphics somehow looked far better in my memory that they do now. I only played it occasionally on a friends PC (I still had a C64 at that time and was stuck with Ace o...

Re: Steam Achievements

Now I am trying for GC39 on Manstein, which is a weird challenge. Especially the Polish airforce is a serious threat with its squadrons of 15.

Re: Steam Achievements

76.

Beating GC39 on Guderian was pretty easy and comparatively fast.

Also, I am aiming at completing some MP levels.

Re: Steam Achievements

Mutual destruction seems to be impossible to achieve. In all these years, this has never happend. On any given scenario, just work yourself into a 1 str. vs. 1 str. situation (hint: use F5 :wink: ), save before the final attack and reload as many times as you need in order to get it. Keep in mind t...

Re: Steam Achievements

I have reached 74 steam achievements. Unfortunately, despite having all GC achievements individually, I did not get the Grandest Campaign achievement (however that is called in English). I guess I won´t play the GC just for that again. I lack Guderian and Manstein and I am not sure if I like to try ...

Re: Poll: How much RAM does your computer have?

And how many people know this by heart ? I had to click through the system properties for some time to find out. When I was still playing Panzer General and RAM was measured in MB, I could tell you all the tech specs of my 486 machine by heart.
