Re: Spanish civil war: Heavy guns ?

Hello, playing on the default difficulty setting, I am in the middle of the Ebro defence, overpowered by the heavy 152 mm of the republicans. I managed to capture enough to field one of these, but I wish that the Condor legion had the foresight to have brought something heavier than the 105 mm... I...

Re: Taipale, Finland (spoilers)

Well, the same correction needs to occur for Katyushas and Il-2 in Polish scenarios - they appear too early

Re: How to go forward with Axis (not: German) Operations and the need for multiple cores - some hopes for the future

Slitherline can run a poll, but I highly doubt there are many fans of Italian and Romanian troops. Both are known to be very weak and inefficient warriors (British called early US troops "Our Italians"), if you want to simulate playing for IT/RO - use the cheapest equipment and only green replacemen...

Re: Finland without Finnish?!?

I finished AO1939, skipping finland because without finnish troops it is unhistoric and very boring. I really liked the scenery of Denmark, but I note that Dk motorcycle have the 3D model of the Germans and the regular infantry is the French one. I honestly have the impression that while Scw has be...

Re: DLC Roadmap

We need new unheard/unpopular battles, not 10 Norway scenarios. Like the largest ever tank battle was 1941 Dubno (or Brody in English sources) but noone heard about it because Prokhorovka got all the PR to cover for stupid decisions of general Rotmistrov. Or did you know there was a full-size auto b...

Re: Losing the entire game due to missing by one or two turns is garbage.

George_parr, you did a nice explanation job! But your examples are of the attacking side, for whom extra 'turns' spent are the difference between a decisive and a normal victory. For the defending side, extra 'turns' were normally a 'game-over': Uman pocket, Kiev pocket, Bryansk pocket - the troops ...

Re: How similar to Panzer General 2 is this?

to get a feeling of the game, watch some youtube walkthroughs - theEdmon, Green Knight to name a few good players PC2 brought some unique mechanics such as trapping your enemy in "pockets". There are some big scenarios - France, Kiev, Rostov... not the whole Western Front at once, but still large en...

Re: Bug Reports

Game crash - SCW Teruel, v.07 (beta) I deleted the cache upon update and enjoyed the very stable and smooth experience up until Teruel, where the game just crashes for no reason in the middle of a turn. I'll have to replay the scenario (turn 2 now) coz I cannot proceed anyhow. LoginId:5a5432bf41a124...

I have only two monitors, but after making sure PC2 had the focus, SHIFT + WIN + RIGHT moved the instance to the next window.
Man, this worked as a charm, thanks for sharing!

Re: Losing the entire game due to missing by one or two turns is garbage.

You fight hard and kick ass all through the campaign, and one mission you miss by one or two turns, and now you are a complete failure? I say this is garbage. Patch it so there is an OPTION to finish up to 3 turns late with increasing point penalties or other negative results, but you can still mov...

Re: SCW Ebro - need ideas

Also, I should of bought trucks for my Italian infantry. Some of them had a long walk from the top of the map to the far south. Lol Good point here. I bought it for my aux Italians and while at first it seemed I wasted some prestige, it soon proved invaluable, as things get hot really quickly and g...

Re: SCW Ebro - need ideas

I just posted this on steam, but I guess it won't hurt to repost it here. I just finished Ebro on my generalissimo playthrough. What a bloodbath!!! Like I said. It was a bloodbath. PS. I should mention that I had the auxiliaries trait, which along with the Italian auxiliaries, gave me a rather larg...

Re: SCW Ebro - need ideas

***3-Stuka Dive Bombers ***2-Strategic Bombers Five mistakes right there. Strats are little use in a defensive scenario. They need fighter cover and don't do much damage. A Stuka cost twice the prestige of a He123. A He123[13] does as much damage as a Stuka[10] and costs less to repair. This is the...

Descriptions of hero traits

Gents,
is there a good list of description of hero trains?
With some of them, I am somewhat confused, for example:

Flag Killer - what it does?
Rapid Fire x 1.5 - can I put it on a fighter?

sorry, but the in-game descriptions are hit-or-miss.

SCW - Madrid rocks :)

After the horror at Ebro, Madrid is definitely a fun to play AND by far the most picturesque map, which was a pleasure for an eye! (talking purely about its aesthetics qualities, not to mention it was an interesting map). Thank you PC2 team for such a great scenario! I especially loved the idea of R...

Re: SCW Ebro - need ideas

I have only completed the map once - and barely made it. I tried to strengthen the far north by concentrating my forces there. I attacked and then cleared them out in a clockwise fashion from the enemy's side of the river. I made it okay about half-way down the East/North bank of the river until I ...

Re: SCW Ebro - need ideas

I'm no crack at this game, but managed to complete the Ebro scenario holding 4 of the victory hexes in the end (playing at the default difficulty). I first tried to defend all of the river crossings, but that's impossible I think. Enemy artillery just keeps pounding you and then there' s the endles...

Re: SCW Ebro - need ideas

Play something else, like the core campaign, while you wait for 1939 DLC. Guaranteed more fun. I used a cheat to end Ebro at 25th turn of 30 (so, not so much cheating in my book - could have lasted 2 more turns easily, but I am short of real-life time) and went to the next 2 scenarios Girona was ac...
