Re: Winning The Battle Of Lutter

I won it a couple of nights ago by using the advice here and variations. My left side cavalry was moved to the center and right. I did use the mounted Arquibusers to fight the commanded shot along with a small battalion of infantry. I used an angled line of tercios (5 or 6 I think) to delay the adva...

Skirmish Mode Roads

Hi all,

I am running P&S Campaigns successfully in WINE on Ubuntu 14.04. My only problem right now is that the roads seem to form a mesh when I do a random skirmish game. I've attached a screen shot to show you what I mean. Anyone seen anything like this either in Windows or WINE?

Thanks,

John

Adding new units to a campaign

How does one go about adding units from another campaign to a custom campaign. For instance, what if I want to add A13s Guy Armored cars and A10s to the British army for an early war Desert scenario set? I know how to customize units but I am curious how to add new ones from other campaigns so I can...

Re: The DLCs... Are they worth it?

My least favorite was Rommel in Normandy. However, the rest are really fun. I go back to all of them and replay my favorite battles. If you are looking for new content, you can't go wrong for $19.95 for all of the expansions!

Re: Battle of Pavia

I played this one twice last night. The first time, I took the computer's advice and took the fight to the Spanish. I was going to crush the Spanish right and work my way down the line but ended up stringing my army out in the process. It ended in my defeat when i capitulated before the battle ended...

Re: Love the game but...

You do have the skirmish mode as well. You can pick the battlefield , era and so forth. While not a "proper" campaign, it can serve your purposes. Or, you could view this as an oppertunity to excel and make your own "what-if" caimpagn. ;)

Can't connect to patch server

I've not been able to connect to the patch server since I bought the game when it came out. I am running the game on WINE/LINUX. It is possible it is just a compatibility problem but I want to exhaust all possibilities before I accept this. BA1 worked fine and BA2 is probably not too far from BA1 in...

Re: I am happy to report P&S works in LINUX WINE

That was a bug that did not come to light until the first time the game was patched (to v1.0.2), by which time of course it was too late to patch it for v1.0.2, so it occurred again on the v1.0.3 update. It won't happen with the next patch. I am actually running with v1.03 of the patch. I ended up ...

I am happy to report P&S works in LINUX WINE

I took the plunge and bought the game last night. After downloading and installing the game, I found the same issue I had with Battle Accademy 2. The OPTIONS.TXT did not get generated. The likely cause was that my system does not support 24bit graphics. It supports 16 and 32 bit graphics though. Go ...

Thank you Pixel! I may know what I am going to buy myself for Christmas! :D BA2's problem was it did not write one of the config files. Once I got the defaults loaded into the correct named file, it ran like a charm. Better than BA1 really. For installing, I simply use the "uninstall programs" optio...

Re: Pike & Shot Running in Mac-Wine?

Have you figured this one out yet Vicco? I am curious before I shell out money for this game since I run it under WINE in LINUX. If not, what is the system doing?

Re: Hold Fire Question

You have to turn off Hold Fire if you want themm to opertunity fire. However, scouts can spot them from 2 squares away and other infantry can spot them when they are adjacent to these units. Once spotted, the unit will behave like they are not on Hold Fire orders.

Barbarossa Completed...my thoughts

Finished up Barbarossa a couple of nights ago. I generally enjoyed the game a lot. Highs: New units. New Troops. New effects (damaged tanks etc) The scenarios are all pretty fun. Playing to the Achievements helps make the game more difficult. Enjoyed the "Stalin's Organs" even though I WAS on the re...

Re: Forces balance

From WWII Vehicles website which annotates several sources. I read the first entry. It has the armor at 60mm and 55 degrees actually. That's probably about 4". The turret is 4". The larget number is in fact 80mm one source stating 55 degree slope. Another states 50-80mm. So apparently it gets as lit...

Re: Forces balance

Depended on the range, like so many other things, but a Panther was more than a match for a T34, even after the T34 was upgraded to the T34/85. Panther could penetrate a T34 frontally at damn near 2km. If I remember correctly a T34/85 couldn't penetrate a Panther frontally until it was 400m away. S...

Hmmm....There was a suggestion by Paulus on the thread to try disabling Full Screen as well. But, if nothing else, yeah. The Mac Beta might be your last best option. :D

Re: Scotland referendum

From what I've read, nobody (BBC) bothered to pay to have the exit polls done. So, there will be no news until the thing is decided by count. If it is that close, then it won't be decided until the last vote is counted. That may take a bit of time.

Re: BA2 PC Running in Wine OSX?

Hi John, Thanks for the reply. When installing the game in Wine, it asks if it should install DirectX & a 2nd module (Netframework?; sorry I'm not so familiar with Windows anymore). It's that 2nd module that gave a message that there was an error during installation. I never had that message for th...

Re: OPTIONS.TXT

I played through the tutorial and the first mission of Barbarossa without issue. I did have to doungrade my monitor from 1920X1050 to 1650X900(?) because the graphics on units would not load. The game did run faster and more smoothly after that though. I guess the detail on the units are higher in B...
