Also rng 2 makes really more sense than 3 since the gun used on the StuPz (and some other SP Arty types) was simply a short ranged weapon (15 cm sIG IIRC). My 2 cents :)

Yes Bebro, you are right but i did not want to bother the "realistic - gameplay" point. Remember the next questions "why the 8,8 has a range of 3 in AA-mode" and so on, hahahaha. :-D

There is no change in the e-file of VII that affects the range of the Sturmpanzer I.

All the vanilla arty ranges have been arranged quite primitive and as tight as possible. Range 3 for the Sturmpanzer with the sIG 33 gun is indeed too far if you compare this with the towed artillery guns. It’s about 5 km, even shorter than the StuG IIIA/B which could shoot about 6 km according to my primitive calculations, hence both should would have the same range.
Even if you don’t give a poo about realism and historical correctness, assault arty range should be restricted to Range 2.
Luckily, the game is very easy to modify to correct anything in a personal mod, so you don’t need to give a poo about the settings of developers.

Hi, very nice campaign, but I have serious issue with saved core army. I have to do something wrong:

1/ DLC I isenabled via GME
2/ DLC is finished, message that core army has been saved for DLC II
3/ via GME is DCL I disabled and DLC II is enabled
4/ in game I choose The Alternate DLC II, but nothing happend, no core army is loaded

Please, what do I do wrong? Thanks

You don't need GME to play this.
Copy the MOD files to

C:\Documents\My Games\Panzer Corps\MODS (location may be different for you, just search for the My Games folder)

If there's no MODS folder simply create it.

Then:
1 - Start PzC
2 - Click on "NEW GAME"
3 - Select More Campaigns (Icon of a folder with "CLASSIFIED" printed on it
4 - Scroll to the end of the Campaign list and, under "User-made Campaigns", select the MOD you want to play.

Hey Nico,
i am playing the alternate campaign the 3rd time. and i fear again the end of part VII ( i am in part VII).
My troops are hungry for the final battles to finish off the king of all overlords.

Please give us part VIII. Not exactly for christmas, but before the spring 2015 ends all movements in groundless mud. :-P
Best regards,
Ramon

I have just finished beating up Lord IX and fought off the hordes of Lord X. Can't wait to sort out Lord X and set myself up as Lord XI. Any likely release dates for DLC VIII?

I finally found some time to pick up the thread and start working on the last DLC of this campaign.
I asked Wildthing to playtest this for me before releasing it here. If there are any others who wish to playtest before release, just send a PN.
I only have a couple more maps to make.

Here is a foretaste:

Moin moin my friend,

Thank you very much for this Mod.
I have finished the first both parts, before my harddisk crashed and now I start again.

I like the small senzarios.

hi folks

first things first

thx to nikki for this nice mod

enjoyed it very much so far

now to my problem or better my inexperience with using mods

I have this Generic Mod Enabler thing installed and copied the parts of this mod into the mod folder.

Can see the chapters and activated part 1 (and only part 1)

All nice'n easy as it should be

Started Chapter 1 in the New Game/ Campaign button (question 1 the DLC of this Campaign appears under all the other Grand Campaign Stuff as it should be but why can i see it 4 times ? Does not appear as if there is any difference if I click any one of those. Just a minor cosmetic thing I think, but it does the same for chapter 2 respectively 3 when i finished the previous chapter. As far as i see this is no problem, but just want to mention it as it may be caused by a fault from me activating it)

Now to my my real problem

Finished Campaign 1 (Core troops was saved according to popup message window) and activated Campaign 2. I can not (or have missed the trick) import my core into campaign 2 (at least it does not give me the option as in the Official Grand Campaigns) Same thing aftwer finishing Campaign 2, Starting Campaign 3. No import of the Core option appears.

Since no one mentioned a similar thing here yet I just assume i made some fault installing the GME or I'm just too stupid to see the probably too obvious solution.

Anyway, foöks please help me out here
How can I Import the core from Chapter to Chapter ?

Some basic info

Have Panzer Corps/Afrika Corps/Allied Corps installed with all Grand Campaigns (East and West) and Patch 1.22 installed. My OS is Windows 7 and the game is installed on C:\Spiele\Panzer Corps so basically a boring as can be no trouble installation. GME is installed in the Panzer Corps Folder and the DLC content for this mod is in the Mod Folder.

Thanks in advance for any help, and sorry for my most likely NOOB question

Dynamic linked campaigns like this one have the tendency to mess things up with the use of GME. Therefore i have quickly made an update of this campaign.

The Alternate GC - 80 scenarios - is now available for download: https://www.sendspace.com/file/1wgm1t

Changes:

One long campaign of 80 scenarios. No more core save/import.

Compatibility with GME:

Before loading your custom e-file/units into GME, delete the equipment.pzdat from Alternate GC/Data folder. Second, the custom e-file must have units available from 01.05.1936 or you will be unable to play.

Savegames of previous versions are not compatible with this new version. Apologies for the inconvenience but i saw no other way to make the campaign compatible with custom e-files/units.
