Re: Books on the Great War . . .

I literally fell in love (if I`m allowed to use that expression for books about wars) with the "... Experience" Series published by the Imperial War museum. My first contact with the Verdun edition came absolutely accidentally when I visited Fort Douaumont. They had just one copy left which I instan...

Re: OT: Top Gear VS the Germans

It`s funny and very well presented, I love even the title.

"The Germans..." sounds like just a bunch of people, like in the film "Gladiator": "I present to you ... the barbarian horde!" :)

@jomni I can understand your wish for original sound effects. Sometimes I`m watching a film and recognize a particular sound effect which also has been used over and over again. But, in my opinion there are only two "war" games which stand out from all others: "Company of Heroes" and the "Battlefiel...

Very good collection and impressive even without the perfect sun angle or moody mist. :-) I suggest a visit of these places whenever you have the chance of travelling through or to these areas. My most memorable spot during my visit (in terms of madness) was the hill at Vauquois. Atop the hill germa...

@Happycat: I also think you might have been unlucky with these guys. Most of my opponents told me in advance, if they can`t answer the turn so soon. And, since you are waiting only for a few days ;-), maybe it`s not too late and they still will show up. It could also be the reason of the summer mont...

Thanks to the players who refered to the video

Hi guys, I just wanted to say a quick "thank you" to all of you who mentioned the trailer/ intro. I noticed that this subject popped up here and there in a few posts and was happy that some of you took the time to write about it. Now, a few weeks after the release of the game, I lost track about eac...

Hi there, I just finished the game on Axis side and got the same result as CharlyG. I don`t know, however, what my opponent`s message will be as I don`t have contact to him outside the game and it`s a pity that the game doesn`t allow the second player to response in chat after the match is done.

Actually I prefer the random scenarios, because all fixed missions and campaigns have only little to none replayability value for me. I found the first Normandy random mission easy, finished it with the first try, but the second (Panzer Skirmish) quite hard. Several times I ended up 1 turn short. Es...

Hi all, I took the time to make a little video for us fanboys and finally it`s done. As you all are aware of, a turn-based tactical game is not really thrill-material to be used in a video, therefore watching it might test your patience. However, I tried to catch a glimpse of the atmosphere of plani...

Thanks for your answer Pip! I appreciate the idea behind the faster animations to prevent them to become boring, however, sometimes there is no chance to enjoy them, because they are so fast. :-) As I said before I only played a few hours (the desert campaign), but in the missions with air support t...

Is there a way to turn the animation speed down?

Hi all, I just bought the game, played it for a few hours and really like it. Was really fortunate tonight to stumble over it, because I have not heard about it before. The only thing what bothers me is the fast animations, especially when the AI is moving. Is there a way to turn down the speed? App...
