And how do I uninstall? When I click uninstall a video file appears.

I uninstalled mine okay via Windows Control Panel > Programs and Features

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - v1.1.10 Update

Must I try to get 1.1.9 again or can I go straight from 8 to 10 ? The download is 5.4GB, you don't need 1.1.9 . I think you can do a clean install from the update. If not the mods will be quick to correct me. Thanks, everything seems to be fine now, I downloaded 1.1.10 and began installing it, then...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - v1.1.10 Update

I'm currently 1.1.8.
I tried to update to 1.1.9 but the download failed.

Re: Question about who get the points?

If my tank is heavily damaged and the crew destroys it, does my opponent get points for its elimination? I don't know because I only play single player. You and your human opponent could arrange to play a test game to find out, and post here what the answer is..:) PS- but if its heavily damaged it'...

Thanks mate, I'm a tank nut and only play scens like Gembloux that have got tanks in the briefing.
The Libreville briefing doesn't mention tanks so I'm assuming there are no tanks in that one.

AAR: Rico's Gembloux scenario

Human French defending against AI German 1940 blitzkrieg. A great well-balanced scenario, I lost because I only held 3 of the 4 flags, the light blue line is the final front line. Jerry's main armoured thrust was down the big red arrow on the left, he overan that flag and I threw most of my tanks at...

AAR: Rico's Bjerkvik scenario

SPOILER ALERT Nice scenario, human French and Poles against the Germans in Norway 1940. I lost because I could only capture 1 of the 2 flags, I attacked along the green arrows but spread out my force too much in a broad-front advance across the width of the map. My tanks did alright in the strip of ...

Re: [WISH] Modern Mod

I agree 100% about wanting modern conflicts but I'm not a modder and don't have a clue about creating them. The only post-WW2 BA2 mods I've heard of are Paul59's 'Cold War' skirmish mod which is USA vs Russia just after WW2- http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=221&t=96283 and Rico's 'Ind...

..the best way to succeed at the game is to induce the enemy units to surrender rather than bludgeoning them to death.
But bludgeoning is more fun..:)

Re: Is it better to destroy one unit or weaken several?

Which is typically most effective, destroying one unit or weakening multiple units? How do you decide when it's "better" to choose one over the other? Can I assume that the AI has limited prestige in each mission? Depends on the scenario of course , but I usually always gang up on one unit in a fee...

Re: cant update

The launcher screen says I have version 1.01.05. If I try to install the update (patch_panzer_corps_2_1.01.01_(38585)_to_1.01.04_(39593)), it says my game is newer than this version.... 1.01.05 is the latest version, so why do you want 1.01.01 to 1.01.04?

Re: Snow melts every turn

But as a test .. try terrainstate snowy Thats what I use for testing within Unreal rather than setany though it might not work outside of the development environment. No mate that won't work for me.

Re: Unit scale

Hex size calculation- The WW2 German 105mm artillery piece had a range of about 10,000 yards, and in PC2 their range is 3 hexes which is typical of other nation's 105's too. Using those maths as a rough guide, each hex is therefore about 3,300 yards wide, or almost 2 miles. But as guys have said, he...

Snow melts every turn

When I crank up a random generated battle that I want to play in a winter wonderland, I type the cheat code- setany ground_state Snowy into the chat box (3rd icon from the left at top left of UI) and the terrain becomes white, but only for my turn, it turns green again for the enemy's turn!

Two extra files question

Stupid question- after downloading the update I clicked the top one (below) to install it and it runs fine, but what are those extra 2 files underneath for? Should I touch them or just ignore them? What do they do?

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

For me Steam automatically downloads the latest update, it is very convenient :) I've got some games on Steam and it's annoying when I sit down to play a game and the Steam message comes up- "Auto-updating, game will be ready to play in X hours". Ideally Steam should give us the option to turn auto...
