Re: Unit Description at bottom left?

The bottom left description only tells you very basic stuff, I've white-circled one of the important bits that shows how many shots you've got left in the turn. BUT, if you hold CTRL and click the unit, you get a much bigger display panel..:) I've blue-circled the most important bits (gun ranges) an...

Re: Thank You

Yes, it is an amazing tactical game. Yes, not bad for a 9 year old game..:) Its square tiles (instead of hexes) give it a classical uncluttered simplicity like chess and I'm hooked, especially as the newer BA 2 (Eastern Front) version includes a mission generator which auto-creates a brandnew map a...

Green arrows?

I just reinstalled BA2 and Kursk after being away for a while and am a bit rusty, can anybody remind me what these green arrows on top of my units mean? https://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g64/PoorOldSpike/sub4/sub4001/ba2-aaa_zps6tuzjslz.jpg~original PS- in low angle view I accidentally discovered a...

On the Realtek sound drivers?
Yes, it seems it's a well-known issue between Win 10 and Realtek, there's a bunch of suggested remedies on the web including "disable enhancements", so I clicked that and it worked, putting a smile on my face bigger than a wave on a slop bucket..:)

Re: Please clarify

Anyway as far as I know Battle Academy 1 hasn't got an automatic quick battle generator but BA2 has, so I definitely prefer playing BA2.

Win 10 wonky sounds?

I recently bought a new PC which uses Win 10 but now the sound effects in some of my games are a bit weird, not just Slith games.
Sound was fine on my old Win 7 PC, and I'm just wondering if any other Win 10 users have had sound issues, and if there's a fix?

Re: BA 2 is not in my games list

Thanks, registering has worked, I've downloaded v1.0.0 and it runs fine..:)
There are two v1.0.4 updates, one is dated April 02 2015, and the other is dated Dec 18 2017, do I have to install them both or can I skip the 2015 one?

BA 2 is not in my games list

Hi, I bought and played BA 2 last year and now want to download it onto my new PC, but I can't find it in the 'My Page' listings at Matrix, I've still got the licence key to prove I bought it. (sniffle)

Hi, this BA 2 (Eastern Front) forum is going strong but I can't seem to find a BA 1 forum here; so does that mean BA 1 is discontinued and nobody plays it or what?

A spot of feedback

I bought the game today and it runs fine, but I wish the onscreen text was a bit bigger, as it's hard to read on my 27" monitor. I've tried various resolution settings but it stays small. Also the 3D unit graphics are not bad but tend to blend into the background, so I'd like to see an option to mak...

Re: 2D option ?

I agree with Philoumg, I want to play the game like a 2D boardgame such as Risk, moving units from area to area, and wish there was an option to disable the 3D tactical battles.

Re: Self-restriction ideas to spice up a campaign?

Personally I use a dice a lot in computer wargames to see what units it allows me to purchase, for example we'd all love a Tiger but if the dice says "no, but you can have a Pz IVH", it adds an extra challenge to the game to force us to make do with what the dice (aka 'High Command') gives us. Same ...

Been away for 18 months, missed any new DLC's?

Hi guys, I just re-installed Pz Corps Gold (v 1.30 download from Matix) after an absence of 18 months and it works fine.
It contains all the DLC's but have any new DLC's been released in the past 18 months that I need to buy?
