Very glad that you included the Ctrl+M hotkey for the scenario briefing but wish it would have worked on campaigns that were saved before patch was applied but I understand it doesn't....

As the previous comment states, the "More Campaigns" sits half hidden on lower right but would look better on upper left next to the Campaigns button replacing the new Tutorial icon on left as the Tutorial Campaign already exists in center...

Also, the library looks great with additional info but will you be adding the naval units as well?

Minor point, would love to see a "Dosier" added like in PGII and PeG to keep track of overall wins/losses in the future.

Thanks for the improvements!

Guys, after you've tried it, please share your experience - how it changed the gameplay for you, and if it was a positive change or not. Thx! :)

Does this include units that surrender?

Once activated, does it remain activated through the next scenario and so on or do I have to activate it each step along the way?

Is it possible with v.1.10
* to add a new terrain type
* to add a new movement type
* to add a new side (p.e. neutral)
* to add a new unit class
* to add a new theater?

What I have to to (new side: add new strplate, minimap-icons...) for a new terrain, movement-type, side, unit class, theater?
Please, explain me the usage of 5th and 6th strplate in the strplates.png.

Do you provide a version 1.05 for download? For older MODs?
Need I only a key to access the Afrik Corps? Because the scenarios / units are in the update.

Gents, can you check/test the game updater ? Selecting 'update' from the game menu starts downloading, but after several hours, download finally completes then promptly crashes with an error. Twice now has occurred after completing, leaving me to start again. Now downloading for the 3rd time, via your web-site. Very frustrating. :(

If I apply the patch in the middle of a DLC campaign, will the number of losses be already up to date or it will start from 0 ?

Looking forward to this update (and getting Africa Corps); I love the game already but two little improvements stand out for players like me, the 'reform units' cheat and being able to quickly identify units that have heroes (I'm always too lazy to rename units with their bonuses!).

With the improved AI I think I'll go back to trying the GCs on the easiest level of difficulty again :mrgreen:

As mentioned above, it would be nice to have some confirmation on how the 'reform units' cheat works:

If we turn it on at the start of a scenario I presume it will continue to work throughout the scenario?

If we save a scenario, do we need to reapply the cheat next time we play, or will that cheat be remembered?

If playing through scenarios do we turn it on at the start of each scenario?

Is there a simple way to check if it is turned on or off?

No, I guess the losses were not internally tracked before, so they start from 0. The result - I'm in Lodz again, because I got curious, how will my statistics look after tough fighting. Right now my little Pak 36 seems to have become a champion!

Same thing happened to me. I downloaded from the mirror linked to the Slitherine page, that not only worked but took 30 minutes instead of 3 hours. Then I used the internal update to check the installation, and it worked for that.

I think once it's activated it will stay permanently enabled.

Yes they are available after June 1941.
krugec wrote:Mines/gliders only available in afrika korps campaigns?
Yes and in future PzC campaigns, of course. They must be included through the editor. So the old scenarios/camapaign don't have it.
fsx wrote:Do you provide a version 1.05 for download? For older MODs?
No. Most older mods are compatible. The cosmetic ones like the Redux sound mod will be adapted. That is, if the modders are willing to do it.

I bet you will need to download.

Like Orlinos said, I think they weren't tracked before, so they will start from 0.

Is it now possible to see the difficulty level during a campaign?
Could someone explain the new traits?

I just love the kradschutzen motorcyle infantry. I can't stop looking at them, and listen to the sound they make while moving or shooting, I'm in love!

I restarted my Rommel DLC41, they appear from Crete 1941. And now its time to unleash my motorcycle hordes on the unsuspecting world in barbarossa.

Also looking forward on using the Brumbar later on.

"Reform units" works like a charm though it needs to be enabled at the start of each scenario. Would be really nice to have a sort of toggle option to see which cheats are currently enabled.

Yes, all cheats are limited to the current scenario.

This cheat works the same as all other cheats: it lasts till the end of the scenario (unless deactivated manually), it is remembered when you save/reload, it does not apply to the next scenario automatically.

There is no way to see active cheats, at least none at the moment.

Unless I'm mistaken, the answer is: yes/yes/no/no/yes. I'll provide detailed instructions when the pre-release rush calms down a bit. In the future I hope to unlock adding new classes too, but I'm afraid that this game will remain limited to 2 sides. This limitation is so fundamental, I would need to change all game in order to support more than 2 sides.
fsx wrote: Do you provide a version 1.05 for download? For older MODs?
We shall see. Before the release I tested new version with about 10 diferent big user campaigns, like the three DMP campaigns for example, and did not find any issues. So, looks like all the mods should just work with new version.

BTW, I believe that 1.05 patch is still availabel on a number of third-party sites where it was uploaded back in 2011, so getting it should not be a problem, provided you have the base 1.0 game installer.

In the future we might provide an unlocker tool, and, as you have noticed, we've put some infrastructure to aloow this in advance. But on 6th of August Afrika will become available only as a full installer. BTW, this installer can be installed on a fresh machine as a completely self-contained game, or on top of PzC as an expansion.

You can always have 1.05 has a mod in GME. Just make a folder in the GME "MODS" folder, called "PzC 10.5" (for example) and copy there all the files belonging to 1.05, before patching to 1.10.
Then you just have to activate, through GME, 1.05 if you want to use it, and deactivate it when you want to play with 1.10.
But please note that your saves made in 1.10 will not work in 1.05.
