Yeah, I cannot connect now again.
I only was able to play 2 turns, then when I restart my laptop I have a message to check my internet connection while trying multiplayer...

Unfortunately I cannot connect, too.

Yesterday everything worked perfectly but now I get the message "Failed to connect to server. Please check your internet connection".

Any advice would be highly appreciated.

I play out of the US, FOG2. Each of my turns is either taking from 1-3 minutes to send or they fail. for those that fail, When I cancel out, I then find the turn has sent and it is in my opponent's cue. In the latter case, have my turns been sent accurately?

more bigger balanced maps like 1941
Didn't you experience any errors playing those big maps ? I had some problems, when discussed with Support, they claim that the game's core engine is not designed to handle such big scenarios, and sooner or later such games will crash.

better backing music
You can always put your favourite music into the game :) I have Luftwaffe March on main menu, and many soundtracks from war movies during game ;) Just put together around 2 hours of music into one mp3 file, and now I can play it all day long ;)

is there any way you would ever go back to panzercorps 1
It can be tough, as what's the point of developing old PzC while there is a need to make a commercial succes of PzC 2 ?.. In that case, maybe SSI studio can do some upgrades to Pacific General, or Panzer General from 1994 ? ;) ;)
panzercorps 2 doesn't cut it ,..simple as that..panzercorps 1 did! espionage and spying etc aren't really covered in panzercorps 1 ..haven't played civilisation.. been playing giant maps for the last 5+ years .. no more crashes than on regular games ..the only crashes were normally when the tech team released a new add on or patches ..about 1 per 4 months .. it's panercorps 2 that can't handle big maps! . my favourite music doesn't give the game it's own feel, nothing has ever been as brave as 'mechanical man' or 'just do it' on C+C ... pzc! = scooby doo pzc2 = when scrappy doo was added.. :lol: .. or ..pzc 1 = westwood studios .. pzc 2 = EA games.. does any of the original slitherine team still work here? used to be Iain mc neil and Pip and kerenksy type people ..has the soul left and been replaced byCGI peole who worry more about the special effects than dialogue? 'batman vs superman' instead of 'rear window' ? ..this was the greatest game company in the world .. now it takes 2 days to do a '1 hour' update :oD ... still thank you for at least (hopefully) keeping panzercorps 1 alive

We were having some unexpected issues this morning however they should be fixed now.
If people could retry, everything should be working again.

If not could you list the game in question and what device and platform you are having issues on (eg Steam/GoG/Standalone or PC/Mac).
Thank you for being patient.

Can you confirm/check you are using the correct login details for me please? As I don't seem to be having any issues with login and only get that message when putting in the wrong password.

@Hatcake: an oversight on my part, used the wrong password. :oops:

All is good, thanks a lot.

btw: what's the difference between the old PBEM1 and new PBEM3?

Commander The Great War (Win7, standalone version 1.6.6)

New game, first turn. After "end turn" is pressed, game crashes.

Logfile reports:

Code: Select all

In spite of crash, upon reloading PBEM screen now shows it's my opponent's turn, as if the game turn was uploaded anyway. :|

PC, BA1

the server is unable to validate your details.

I had a few games running before the 'maintenance'. ..!

36 hours?

Post by ericdoman1 » Wed Oct 14, 2020 1:18 am

Mine is FOG I, PC and I still have. Sorry, could not connect. Reason: OK (code 0)

In hindsight prob an idea to do it 1 device, platform, game etc at a time. If it works out with one, then hopefully that would enable you to do it for all. If it doesn't then unfortunately 1 group of players are affected rather than 6 or 7 or more. Are all games, platforms etc not working
