PC version keeps crashing

I purchased the PC version of the game (already own iPad) yesterday, but unfortunately am dealing with frequent crashes. It's happened during the AI's turn but also during one of mine (after moving a unit IIRC) - the game freezes and I'm left with the spinning circle mouse pointer, any clicking on t...

Differences between iPad and PC versions?

Hey all, pretty excited to hear this has been released for iOS! But just a quick question... I recently bought Panzer Corps for the iPad, and while overall it's an enjoyable port there were a number of features left out compared to the PC version - some were very minor, others fairly large, but the ...

Re: Amoured cars OP?

AC were not used by the community. There were a couple of polls. So it was changed in a patch. All AC's doubled or more in defense. That is the only problem I have with Armor cars. They are hard to kill. So most of them have been reduced defense in the Total Realism Mod. Interesting. So the changes...

Re: "Actual" sizes for various units?

Everything above does not make sense at all That seems a little harsh. Maybe from historic relative unit sizes it doesn't make sense, but neither does the battalion concept in the context of many scenarios. Kiev, Moscow, etc (original campaign), there's no way those offensives at the scale they're ...

"Actual" sizes for various units?

A few of the recent threads (especially the pretty informative "Historically Authentic Cores" one) have got me thinking - despite the abstraction of PzC and its predecessors, how do you generally visualize your units far as size and military hierarchy goes? The fact that some of them are extremely s...

Re: Unit Guide

Good points all, and thanks for the info proline. Far as the Sturmpanzer goes, can you tell us inexperienced players what those strengths are? Glancing at the stats in KenAllen's linked PDF I don't see anything that stands out hugely. Thanks.

Re: Amoured cars OP?

I think one of the issues we run into in an abstracted game like PzC is comparing vehicles on a 1:1 basis vs comparing them as formations. It's unclear in this game what size of units we're dealing with sometimes, and while that flexibility is part of its beauty, I think it also leads to some incons...

Re: Unit Guide

Thanks for the reply but I should have said that I have iPad version and I think all that info is missing. I wonder if there is a way for us iPad owners to get a hold of this :) Yup Ken, they seem to have left some of the finishing touches on the iPad incomplete and moved on to other projects - the...

Re: Custom Difficulty on IOS

Ah, thanks. Are the devs on record about possibly rebalancing the GC expansions? I've purchased them but am holding off playing because I keep hearing stuff like this. A challenge is welcome, but not a hopeless one brought about by lack of adjustment for mechanics changes...

Re: Panzer Corps iPad half off!

Yep, maybe I should have reiterated more that I think it's still a good game. It's the "We'll call it done & move on to other projects" while still charging full price that I don't get. Really the inability to use mods alone - not including the other omissions - should have been worth a price reduct...

Re: Panzer Corps iPad half off!

My biggest concern is that the game looks like absolute crap on the iPad. Is there no chance of getting retina graphics? The game looks awful zoomed up and mediocre at the normal zoom setting. Yes, despite it being one of the deeper strategy games available for iPad (which is more about the quality...

Re: Custom Difficulty on IOS

Yes, it would be nice if someone from Slitherine could chime in about this patch, to tell us whether it's just delayed or if it's in fact been abandoned. I'm holding off really playing the game wholesale until this fix comes down the pipe. IIRC also it wasn't simply a "rumor" but actually an announc...

Re: Amoured cars OP?

I'm a relatively new player, but this surprised (and annoyed) me too. We can cite individual vehicle armament and armor, penetration capabilities, etc, as a one-on-one exercise to try excusing why in PC armored cars can sometimes go toe-to-toe with tanks, but the fact is - these light armored vehicl...

Re: Need help with the DLC Grand Campaigns

I have excellent units and leader bonuses, but no matter how many Russian units I destroy, more powerful units just keep coming. Every battle turns into a grueling slugfest. Nothing I do in the current or prior campaigns/scenarios has any effect on Russian production, nor does it alter the ultimate...

Re: Newbie questions

As a fellow noob I recommend playing the vanilla campaign first. While it doesn't have the breadth or scale of the GC, it's plenty fun and has far more branching paths and some real ahistorical what-if developments that reflect your performance as a whole.

If that second link is accurate, then it sounds like those features are coded and awaiting release any day - would be great news if that's the case! Hopefully this is a Lesson Learned type thing for Slitherine. Again while I appreciate "unanticipated problems" during ports across hardware, stuff lik...

Wow ThvN, that is above and beyond. It says something about Slitherine that the community is so damn helpful - good players, usually good company. I didn't even think about motorized infantry completely losing their ability to travel rough terrain. In that case, is it a good idea to keep some unmoto...

Re: A series of newbie-ish questions

Thanks BNC! Clears a bunch of stuff up. On that prestige gain topic - again (I know it was a multi-parter), is it a usual strategy to delay your impending victory to pick up more locations and therefore more prestige? Or is that insignificant in the grand scheme (not to mention gamey)? And then just...

A series of newbie-ish questions

Hi all, just been getting my feet wet in the vanilla campaign and trying to figure out some stuff I didn't see elsewhere. 1. How exactly is Prestige calculated? It ticks up in scenarios - I assume back capturing victory locations and cities/ports/airfields, but what about destroying units? And there...

ThvN, many thanks for linking/posting those images of the PC "Library". This whole time I've been wondering how the hell I'm supposed to know certain stuff, like the terrain effects and campaign structures, etc. Looks like there's a bunch of other info that's been omitted too. The mod stuff I unders...
