Re: Minor issues

Here is a minor issue I have. Yes it is minor but it does exist for me.

I was used to seeing white, yellow, green color in the unit info text, for the vision of the unit. Now for some reason all...

Re: wargamer review

While I did buy Steel Panthers 1 and 2 when they were released, I didn't spend that much time with them. Partly because I didn't have time and partly because I preferred Panzer General. That...

Re: What type of pbem games you prefet ?

Random air works by having air sorties set as XXX

A PBEM campaign with you? That takes a long time and you do need the CD version of the game. Do you have it?

Re: What type of pbem games you prefet ?

I haven't played PBEM in a few years now.
Usually campaigns with zero cluster, max size map, random air, fast artillery OFF, animation on.
From the above, everything but battle size and air is...

Re: Sudden defensive missions

Thank you.
I assume the enemy (AI) is not negatively affected as they don't have a core army.

Sudden defensive missions

When you don't get the chance to repair your units and you have an extra mission to defend, are there any extra negatives if you just retreat or is it like a normal defend mission?

Re: maximum range vs weapon accuracy; warhead vs penetration

If that single hit does not kill the target you might have given away your best chance in a close, quick moving situation. The results of a hit can be hard to determine quickly. The explosion will...

Re: maximum range vs weapon accuracy; warhead vs penetration

If a single one hits, pens and kills the target, surely they stop firing, right?

Re: Auto hide taskbar

Set that off and you will not be bothered with the warning dialogue again, since your machine operates OK in that mode

Auto hide taskbar

I know there is an issue with the taskbar autohiding can cause issues with the game.
I don't know if this is also known but I am using it some time now without any problems.
Basically I start the...

The key word you missed is " ADJUST" ( not just click on ......he has to adjust the fire to take control )[/QUOTE]

Indeed.

Not perfect but pretty good.

(off topic) Afrika Korps

Anyone else had experience with the game Afrika Korps?
It was a turn based theatre level wargame set in north Africa during the second world war.

Re: Suggestion regarding artillery

Yes it is possible to work around it, but it is not convenient. You have to keep going back and forth into the bombardment screen...

Re: Suggestion regarding artillery

That works for the first barrage or so. What happens 10-15 turns in the battle? If you have more than a couple of artillery/observers you end up with either having a list per observer, which is...

Re: Suggestion regarding artillery

Either you don't understand me or I don't you.
I am not saying there isn't a simpler way of doing things by just having one observer calling all the shots. It's just not as good as having dedicated...

Re: Suggestion regarding artillery

But that is my "issue".
Since it is so easy to have the wrong observer "call the shot" simply because you can't always remember who has the best LOS to the target hex AND which artillery aims...

Re: Suggestion regarding artillery

That is fine but not really the issue, at least for me.
If you have more than a couple of artillery/planes and more than a couple of obs, as I usually have as I play in maxed out maps, it is hard to...

Re: Let's Play 1989 USSR vs USA

Next part is up.
Yes it took me a while. I know, I know.
Our Soviet forces are fighting back the American counterattack and it is NOT easy.

Re: Trench warfare 100 years later

This is so sad. I am not talking from a tactics perspective. I hope there is peace in Ukraine soon.

Interesting to note, the man wearing the cam has an American patch on his right arm.

Re: Swedish data on British crews and tanks

This is my own opinion, so take it with a grain of salt.

In general, Swedes seem to emphasize combined arms at all levels (even in the game, they are one of the few armies that has integrated...
