But fortunately there is an easy way to unlock the scenarios. Just open the CAMPAIGN.TXT file in the campaign folder and delete the word CARRYOVER, close and save the file and you are done!
Thanks mate that worked, i'll look through all the scens to see if can find any small fast ones..:)

Re: Old User Created BA2 SP Scenarios!

Personally I've never been a big fan of campaign play in any game because I much prefer small short sharp fast-moving standalone scenarios, so it's a pity some designers lock their scens inside campaigns where we can't get at them. However Order of Battle (and some other games) don't do that, they h...

Re: Download of Update 3 for Panzer Corps 2 error message

Okay and I see Slith have just released v 1.01.04 without announcing it in big bold letters and I almost missed it, grrr.. Also I don't know if it's patch 5 or whatever as they haven't told us, grrr a...

Re: Old User Created BA2 SP Scenarios!

Hi Paul, can we play them as standalone scens, or do we have to play them within campaigns?
For example there are 6 scens in the Alsace campaign, so can we select and play just one of them as a standalone scen?

Re: cant update

Like I said, I bought PC2 from Slith/Matrix, not Steam, so I don't know nothing about how Steam works.

If you bought the game from Slith/Matrix go to the Matrix site and download from there like this-

Re: Download of Update 3 for Panzer Corps 2 error message

I don't know if you've got the Steam version? I bought mine from Slith/Matrix and whenever updates are released I go straight to the Matrix forum to download them from there. 1- Click 'My Page' 2- Scroll to your game and click 'File downloads' 3- Click the download you want, the latest is patch 4 al...

Re: Looking ahead to Patch 5

Suggestion- Make recon units less slippery I agree with people who've said that recon units are too dangerous in the game because they can slip through ZOCS too easily to get into our empty rear cities and objectives, and we have to drain valuable units from our front line to chase after them. So pe...

Re: Building in a City Immediately After Capturing it.

thanks does this only work with the auxillary option so you can purchase more units? at the start of a campaign i rarely select it and use all my slots to at the beginnning of each battle. Sorry I know zilch about campaign play because I only play random generated missions, but I think the procedur...

Re: Building in a City Immediately After Capturing it.

can you please define "building in a city" and give an example how you do it after capturing it?.. Okay, this is at the start of a random mission, I've just bought something on the purchase screen and the yellow hexes around the supply city on the left show me where I can deploy it, because that's ...

Laptop question

I'm going to buy a laptop for surfing and watching youtube and stuff, but it'd be nice if it could also play high-end games like PC2, so I recently sent this email to my local computer shop- "Hi, I want to buy a laptop but only if it's powerful enough to play high-end strategy games and flight sims,...

I know GE is offtopic but I'm desperate, having asked around everywhere with no success. Do any of you guys know how to make the GE eyepoint rise and fall with the terrain as we drag the forward view around?

Re: OOB vs PC2 game mechanics

As I mentioned, OOB doesn't have a random mission generator but I thought I could get round that by creating my own scens with its editor, and introducing "random chance unit appearances" so that in every game I'd never know what the computer would be giving me and the AI. "I have set my life upon a...

Re: Weekly Unit Discussion Thread

Returning to the AA topic, did I imagine it or did my bomber suffer a 1-point strength loss when attacking a tank? (there were no AA units around). It'd certainly make sense because some tanks had a turret-roof mounted AA MG. And do some infantry have AA capability too in PC2? https://i.postimg.cc/J...

So, I take it that Cornwall is a nice place and popular with tourists from other parts of Britain? (I've never been anywhere in the UK other than changing planes at Heathrow, but that doesn't count.) Cornwall is a strange pagan place, there are wicker men everywhere and tourists are lucky to get ou...
