combined or separated installations of add-ons?

Post by canuck97 » Sun Jun 16, 2013 9:37 pm

Hi there,

I've just bought Allied Corps and now own Panzer Corps, Afrika Korps and Allied Corps. Since I noticed that the Afrika Korps installation merged Panzer Corps and Afrika Korps in one single installation I was just wondering if it is possible to install every program (i.e. Panzer Corps, Afrika Korps and Allied Corps) separately? So one could start each stand-alone program on its own which among other things would allow to play each intro and show each menu screen (in the combined installation there's always only one intro and one screen as far as I noticed). So I think it should be possible if another installation path is chosen with each installation. However, I was just wondering if there are any benefits (or disadvantages) for each method? Sure you can only play the campaigns etc. of each program, but that wouldn't be a real hindrance.

Thanks for ideas/infos!

I'm afraid it won't be able to install separately. Once the installer check there's an Afrika Korps or Panzer Corps installed it will install Allied Corps as an expansion. The same with Afrika Korps.
Every time you switch the campaign, the menu intro will switch as well. The only thing that you'll be missing is the video intro.

I haven't tested it myself yet - so thank you very much for this quick answer. I just came to this idea cause I really like the different intro videos. Maybe it would be a nice idea to make them available to watch within the game (I know they can be played as separate files).
