Reaction Fire

I've long noted that Shrapnel's WinSP series is, fire round for fire round superior to the other major Steel Panthers offshoot SP:WAW, in terms of representation of the survivability of soft...

Re: Turret crew and Fire Control

My original comments were based on overall observations playing the game, and not specific to the OOBs. Looking at the OOB stats was an afterthought. Apologies for the mistake looking at the wrong...

Re: Turret crew and Fire Control

You are right.

Re: Turret crew and Fire Control

perhaps another factor to consider in terms of AFV stats: values in the Encyclopedia.

Turret crew and Fire Control

One of the aspects of WinSPWW2 that I've enjoyed is the renaissance of good 1940 scenarios between Germany and France. Original SP made these scenarios a cake walk due to morale/fire suppression....

Sorry.

Couldn't resist. I saw an article on a news agency....this picture was shown and the caption read: "A 'damaged' Russian tank near [so and so]"

Re: AFV shrapnel (same hex, adjacent hex)

Thx for the list.

This makes a lot of sense for a post I'm whipping up regarding the 1940 Germany vs France scenerios.

Seems a lot of the negatives of Buttoned status apply to offensive action....

Re: AFV shrapnel (same hex, adjacent hex)

noted.

Does buttoned status have a significant or minor impact. I'm familiar with the state as it's classic SP....how does it work in this iteration in terms of impacting said unit?

Posting this in the WinSPWW2 forum as given the tech of the time, a lot more closer engagements involving MG's.

Re: Updates in light of Ukraine war

Talking politics in real time, esp in the age of Information is a tricky affair. One thing I've learned from studying "War" is that there is rarely, if ever a white hat/black hat situation.

Re: 4K and large monitors

I did play it a little back in the 90s. It was interesting to play for larger campaigns but to be honest, it was stretching the game engine to the breaking point. Battles often just ended up...

Re: One more suggestion

I often play with it off so that some units that are in retreat mode will do so vs possibly rally and stay in place (which might be a bad place to stay in)

Re: 4K and large monitors

Hi,

The messages did occasionally block parts of the action but I don't recall that being a major issue in WAW. I agree the SP3 game itself was "not good" for the very reasons mentioned. I...
