In the past, a lousy weekend was just a lousy weekend, but today we have SPWW2!

Best regards to Illinois

One version of gameplay I do from time to time is let the AI handle the infantry and arty and my job is to support whatever happens as the armour commander

Hmmmm, never thought of that. That would take a lot of tedious movements off the table. I prefer my vehicle orders over infantry. I may have to try that. Thanks for the idea Don.

Yes that will be great! But I will do it the other way around. I will command the infantry myself. I am looking forward to that.

Greetings from Germany to both of you!

We used to do something similar back in the 80s when we were playing Exerion in the arcades. One would take control of the spaceship while the other would take control of the guns by choosing to shoot the fast but limited ammo/gun or the slower but unlimited gun/ammo at the enemy craft/aliens.
So with one coin we would both play the game.
Still pissed off there was never an Atari ST version.
(sorry for the kind of off-topic)

Man, where did you find this? I miss the days I had red hair, or was black.

Good find.

I started playing this game back in my young and single days, 1995, with the original Steel Panthers. The game has been around so long that I now have my 17 year old son playing it, and my wife complains that there are now 2 computers making all kinds of war noises

So I have added one person to the ranks of those playing
