What's up with me - I only want to be Germans!

Ever since I made model kits many years ago, then got into tabletop wargaming and then computer games I've always opted to play as Germans. You see, I have always admired the designs of their armour and aircraft over (almost) anything the allies had. There's the Krupp Protze, SdKfz251, 222, 234/4, K...

To be fair to the OP, he's not talking about the game designer but the scenario editor.
Er...I know that, hence my response.

Re: Looking ahead to Patch 5

Can we please have an option to lose the mini map?!! Personally I don't use it and it gets in the way.

Re: This is not a finished game - poor realism, balance and a useless designer

I think it's a bit strong to say the game has a useless designer! I would, however, concur with other comments about the AI. As someone who did modest programming years ago I am mystified why PC2 enemy units appear to make no checking in their vicinity of enemy units and strengths. This is not diffi...

Re: Patch 4 is out! (v1.1.1)

Problem is when I updated from the intro screen it downloaded an earlier version than what I already have! It informed me there was an update so I downloaded and installed it, and only realised it had gone back to 1.09 when my game saves wouldn't load and crashed out, then I saw the version at the b...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

I have played PC for many many years and really want to like this game, but just cant get past the blurry feeling after a movement and the units being so hard to differentiate, also the overview is just off in some weird unexplainable way. Gave it another go today, but just had to quit again. I´m v...

Re: Add transport for existing artillery without it?

Thanks. Yes, that works. I'd have thought it also possible to purchase transport then move it to the artillery, but I guess not.

Add transport for existing artillery without it?

Is there a way to give transport to artillery which is already on the field of play? Can't find anything in the rulebook or a means of doing so on-screen. If I purchase transport alone how do I link it with a gun that is already present?

Re: Barbarossa Campaign

Position anti-tank and/or 15 cm artillery behind your front lines and the Russian armor will immolate itself attacking even infantry or recon cars. Funny you should say that! I've been accumulating heavy artillery and am holding a (slightly fluid) line. It means progress is very slow but I can at l...

Barbarossa Campaign

I started this and have reached the 'Gates of Moscow' with Army Group Centre." I presume such scenarios are fixed , i.e. I am not able to disobey the order to turn south and attack Kiev instead of pressing home my advance on Moscow? (in reality a fatal error). I note that during the phase of attacki...

Re: Bug Reports

Is it a design factor that low calibre AA guns cannot be used offensively in ground attack, i.e. Switched to this role? They were employed against ground targets in WW2 and some were mightily effective. It seems in the game they fire reactively against ground targets only if attacked. I firmly belie...

Re: AA guns in ground attack

The data say one thing, but opting to employ low calibre AA guns for ground attack (Switch) just does not function. May be a bug. They only fire in a ground role if attacked so cannot be used offensively, which has bugged me since the original PC! Hence my original query - how to change this without...

Re: AA guns in ground attack

All AA in PzC2 is switchable to AT. With a few cases to Tank. After switching they have a range=0. Really? I tried switching two of my Russian AA units to ground attack but the Switch button did not do a thing, and there was no ground attack indicator showing on enemy units. They would target only ...

Re: The T-60 - Light Tank No More?

I agree with the OP. The T60 had poor armor (up to 35mm) and a ground defence of 16 is the same as the Panzer IIIJ (which was a more substantial, better armoured (up to 50mm) vehicle. I think the T60 could reasonably be given a GD of 14, the same as the Panzer IIIF/G.

AA guns in ground attack

I cannot figure why most low calibre AA guns cannot be switched to a ground attack role. It was the same in PC1. I altered the old equipment data file so they had some effect on hard and soft targets but this unfortunately meant they potentially had a ground range of 2-3 hexes (i.e. same range as fo...

To edit equip file 1) make a safety version. 2) Add .csv to file name - equipment.pzeqp.csv 3) Open equipment.pzeqp.csv in spreadsheet. I use LibreOffice. Charactoer set: Unicode (UTF-16) , be just Unicode, NOT UTF-7 or UTF-8 Separator Options: Tab 4) Save in spreadsheet format of your choice. [.xl...

Re: Confused & Struggeling

I find these early scenarios problematic in not having any clue about what type of armour and air cover I'm up against so buying stuff is largely guesswork. An army would have a pretty good notion of the opposing forces, particulary air power, no? I find I have to play a scenario a first time so I k...
