Units Won't Move

Post by 260DET » Sat Mar 16, 2019 12:30 pm

Panzerkreig. Left click on say an infantry unit, the only way to get a movement arrow to show is to hold Ctrl but a left click on the required destination does nothing. Last time I tried Boot Camp it worked OK, have downloaded the Feb bug fix pack. Suggestions to get these tardy men moving? Not involving a court martial please.

First of all make sure you're not stuck in the Deployment Phase, so start the battle and then tell us if you can move now..:)
When you select a unit, all the hexes that it can move to should be highlighted.

PS- what's the 'bug fix pack'? I've never heard of it

Movement is no problem if the Russians are given their turn first but then I have to forego my deployment phase.

Exactly which Panzerkrieg scenario can't you move in?

I can't remember that there is a scenario in PK with that name?

I don't think there's any official scenario with that name.
If it is a custom scenario you need to contact the designer.

First scenario Panzerkrieg = 01_Rzhev :

Step 1 = Purchase and deploy :arrow: IMPOSSIBLE TO MOVE :!:
Step 2 = Soviet Turn 1 (soviet play first = AI)
Step 3 = German Turn 1 (german play second = Human player) :arrow: YOU CAN MOVE :!:

So that's the way it is, Soviets are supposed to move first? But the game does not seem to be set up that way.

Ah, but 'Steel Fire and Ice' is NOT the name of the battle, it's just one of the popup messages that appear throughout battles..:)
Look, in the pic below I've circled in red at the top that it's just a message, and I've circled the name of the battle ('Rzhev') at the bottom-

Image



In the Rzhev battle, the computer-controlled Russians move first but before the start you get a deployment phase where you can buy your German units and deploy them on the map, but you can't move them, look, I've clicked the German unit but can't do anything with it-
After doing your buying you have to click the hourglass at bottom right to start the game-
Image




Then you have to sit watching the Russian units move, and when they've finished it'll be your turn, and NOW you can move your units, look you can move this one to any of the highlighted hexes-
Image

PS- AND REMEMBER, we can play OOB either as single scenarios or as full long Campaigns. You opted to play the Panzerkrieg campaign, but if you're a newcomer I'd recommend you play single scenarios first to get used to the game mechanics before jumping into the more complicated Campaigns..:)

Thanks mate, about 15 years ago I read on the net about a chinchilla named Spike who got his toe caught in the corner of his cage and needed vet treatment, so I took his name in sympathy..:)
