Already told some of my friends who still didn't buy Panzer Corps that they are missing out on the best strategy game of the year. What shall I say, my Beta luck is usually low (not a blogger - seems to be a requirement to get into those MMO Betas) but regardless if I get into this Beta or not, I am...

Interestingly the StuG IIIG was the most produced version: From December 1942– April 1945. 7,720 produced, 173 converted from Pz.Kpfw. III chassis. It was also the final model of the StuG series. What does that mean? No StuGs in STALINGRAD or SEALION 42, they first appear in the KURSK/ITALY scenario...

4-14 5-X That's the Soft - Hard attack values of most German StuGs and other turretless tank destroyers. Tanks do better and even Infantry does better if terms of soft attack capabilities. The current Panzer Corps scenarios and campaign is the core of the "StuG problem": Especially in the offense we...

Re: The Bonus Campaign Difficulty Levels

I'm curious as to which of the bonus difficulty levels you find most difficult. For me: Hardest: Guderian Moderate: Manstein Hard but beatable: Rommel I've won on Rommel (no undos, reloads) and almost won on Manstein (but reloaded many times - couldn't get a sea lion decisive but could see how I co...

Strange I didn't get voiceovers in any language when starting the Poland Campaign.
But I noticed an unusual loading delay that I mentioned already in my first posting here.

Thanks for the feedback - can you post the feedback in English or we cant do anything with it! No worries, Biermaschine asked me exactly that, to translate his feedback. He didn't post it so far unfortunately. @HBalck: I have completely translated German briefings except that the voiceovers are mis...

You simply don't get to see it other than Horseman explained and it is a weakness of the UI that somehow should be addressed in future updates. It's a pretty annoying flaw.

Almost cries for a screenshot or upload of the savegame if you don't mind.

Maybe really something is wrong and not working as intended. And maybe someone can test what would happen in Panzer Corps 1.0.

But, why go for losses? Why not just get the MV on the last turn? I never play to lose on purpose; just doesn't seem right to me. Also, do you get the same Prestige bonus for a loss? Many here already won the campaign and invaded America. They know they can do it. I even started a thread about it, ...

Well as it was not easy to get the windowed mode working with the engine at all... ... it is not my call to decide if it is worth the effort to improve the windowed mode even more. Dunno if Rudankort will go with it as it is - which I think is okay - or wait with releasing the windowed mode till a m...

Here is someone who asked for the windowed mode. It's an amazing thing to have. It better utilizes the size of large monitors and allows to run the game in the background. Sure you can ALT-TAB and use two monitors but it isn't close to just minimizing the window. Panzer General Forever runs in a sim...

I am using Windows 7 64bit. Moving and resizing the window works, to move it I click the grey area of the right UI bar. It is working! But like Xerkis and others I think it is a bit awkward. The usual window bar with _[]X would be nice. But I guess that's rather tricky to code I assume otherwise it ...

Restart scenario adds extra units in campaign mode

Restart scenario is bugged in campaign mode.

You get the same units you started the scenario with again for deployment.

E.g. 35 units to start Overlord with become 70, next time 105, then 140.
The units you started with get added again every time.

SSI's five star series had consistently reliable combat predictions. They still allowed for some margin of error, it was just much rarer than it is in PzC Your memory must be failing.

I only got 1 special unit in my first campaign till the very end. You can have 3 at max. Get them early and it's quite the edge. Victories could be the currency. Decisive victories would contribute more than minor victories. Say 3 points vs 1, every 5 points you can request an Elite unit. I just thi...

Molve:

No, I suggested nothing like that.
I was also talking about something entirely different and not about more pampering to the "fun, casual" gamer. That's your obsession and I already told you that it can end in a totally watered down experience for everyone.

Use terrain types to your advantage.

Infantry is devastating in "close combat" terrain as it will attack the horribly low "close defense" value of tanks for example.

You find a complete table of terrain initiative caps and close combat modifiers in your ingame "Library".
