By the way, almost all of the info on the net is for the computer game, not the PS 1 game, many still don't know there is quite a difference between the two. And keep on spreading the wrong info on how to win the PS 1 game by way of the computer vwesion!!!

What's up, B?

I think it's time we round up the current edition of Panzer General and stomp some Russians together...

Yeah, we play both of them. We split our units on PS1, but we haven't tried working together on the PC, except for when we smashed into Peoples General.

Now there is a good game...

I actually haven't played PG or AG on computer. Only PG 2 and Peoples' General... I'll have to download, play, and compare. I've been kinda tied down by Alpha Centauri. Nothing like Commies in Space... and I finally found an axis and allies computer game that matches the boardgame and works! Yeah! I'm interested to see how PG on PC is.

Wink Thanks for the replies guys

Just making sure here, the "secret" I found LOL. OK, do you guys always get the same hex locations everytime you fire up the PS AG for the Russian campaign?? If so, I beleave after the first two battles, shut down the PS 1. Then fire it back up and let it sit for say 1-2 hours so it runs on whatever. Next select youtr saved last victory game and then see what kind of hex set up you now get. Every time I do this, there are new hexes a bit closer to the German towns you have to take, got it??
No clue if it is a bug, computer compensates for thinking you are playing a long game and shows mercy, or just one of those things on the CD of AG that I have, but it works. The Moscow battle is where it is critical, at least for me to get past it for the only Major Victory. And remember that there are no minor victories here, at least not on this campaign regardless of what you see on the net.

Cheers, again, I could have a "strange" copy, but from what I have seen on the net, a lot of people have problems with the Russian campaign on the PS I. The PC version has a working minor victory that DOES work so you can complete the game as is......, PS does'nt!!! LOL

I've had "strange" copies for PS1, it seems like out of the three copies for Panzer General, each one has a different and equally horrible glitch somewhere.

One wouldn't keep the scores...

One would put city hexes in the open (invisible) and cause close combat when I didn't want it...

One would let us turn defunct ships into land and air units by upgrading...

Wink Wow

I've never heard of that kind of strange bugs, I bet that has to be it. So no "extra" deployment hexes for you when you leave the game on for a while, but not actually playing the game??

Cheers, thanks bud

No, but we always get a few "secret deployment" hexes that can only be used the first time a scenario loads for you...

Panzer General

Of course, I turn off the game music and listen to mine...

I Smashed through Poland and Norway on PC Panzer General last night. I noticed a few differences. AI seems a bit better, or at least less predictable.
I think there may have been an extra row of hexes somewhere, throwing my timetables off. You can't fill out your roster at the end of a level during the view battlefield option. That kind of surprised me. Altogether, lots of fun!
Still looking for allied general. Shouldn't be too hard to find.

I missed your last post Red Skull, sorry about that!!!

Did you ever figure out what was different on the maps about the PC compared to the PS I?

Cheers

Winning Cheap

For the Eastern Campaign, and this is as cheap as it gets.
Manipulate the settings for supply, weather, and spotting units. Some Soviet units are screwed for ammo. Turn it off on your turn and on for theirs (unless they will drain your ammo then leave it on).
Ice and snow is useful for crossing rivers but ruins everything else. Turn it off on your turn and on for them.
Spotting units can be very difficult as the Soviet Recon. is inferior and other units generally have poor spotting. Wasting a plane to spot for artillery is a sham. So turn it off for your turn and on for them. Also be aware of their unit spotting especially Recon. and Bf110(6 spotting). Destroy them and use their spotting limitations to draw them into ambush. The unsupported infantry they think they will destroy will turn into a rugged defense with artillery support.
