I have started work on this campaign, more commonly known as Battle Of The Bulge.
There will be two threads where the player at start selects wether he will use the XLVII Pz Korps or the I SS Pz Korps.
Both are part of Manteuffel's 5th Panzer Armee.
This campaign is based on Command Ops Series ‘Battle Of The Bulgescenarios adapted for Panzer Corps.
Map is 1km/hex and units are battalions/companies.
Each unit has a max strength between 3-10 (some air units are over-strength).

You need PzC v1.1 to play, and in addition these mods are required:
Massi’s terrain mod: viewtopic.php?p=275153#275153
Real Sound Mod redux 1.10: viewtopic.php?f=147&t=30216
I have also used a few unit icons from Puma, churchlakecity, El_Condoro, bebro and guille1434 .
These come with the campaign. Thanks to (all) PzC modders!
Highly recommended (a must for smooth modding): The Generic Mod Enabler. viewtopic.php?f=147&t=27158

First of all...great campaign! Had an issue with the Elsborne ridge path. Played the first game fine and got a DV. Moved on to the next scenario, as the map screen came up it was all black!? I plan to try it again in the next few days but just thought it was strange. Never had any issue with mods before...

Have not tried the first tree yet so don't know if there is a similiar issue. I believe I have all files in the right place and all Mods in place.
