Newbie in PanzerCorps Beta testing, need some guide.

Post by andrewmazlim » Fri Dec 16, 2011 4:04 pm

Hello and thxs for accepting me as beta tester; I'm a huge fanatic P.C.!

Can you guide me up a bit?
I've read (in the email I've got), there are two installers. How come? What each one's doing?

And... except bugs/crashes, what else I'm looking for, to report?

Regards,
A.

This is the beta for an additional content package (DLC) that will be downloadable separately from the main game. But the released version of the game does not detect beta DLC packages, so you need a special version of the game too. It will install to a separate folder and will not interfere with your main Panzer Corps installation in any way. You will use it to beta test the DLC '42 only.

So this is why there are two packages: for beta DLC, and for beta-friendly main game.

Bugs/crashes are always important, but also, it is important to test new scenarios and the overall balance of the '42 campaign. Just share your impressions about scenarios as you play through them in their respective sticky threads in this forum. Was the scenario too easy or too hard, what could be improved in it, were there any bugs, missing/incorrect names on the map? Were there any mistakes or typos in the briefings? Etc. etc. Content is the primary focus of DLC beta test, because the engine remains fundamentally the same.

Edit: It seems that Rudakort was quicker than I.

First install the main beta installer is at:
http://www.slitherine.com/files/panzer_ ... a1.exeThen install the DLC beta

Then install the DLC beta
http://www.slitherine.com/files/panzer_ ... LC4-v1.exe

Use the serial that it was provided with the email you've received.

Please use the default install paths for all installers.

As a beta tester, besides reporting bug and crashes, you can report as well general impressions of DLC and of the new beta.

Understood.

So, I'll have handy my historic WWII books (for any historic mistakes) and I'll check the gameplay.
Would I be able to use my gore points/units from the previous DLS campaigns?

If you have already finished DLC '41 campaign, you can bring your core into DLC '42 beta campaign.

Marvelous! I'm on it, when the downloading ends.
