It's going to be a long day. I saw the title screen at least! Something to look forward too.

D/l as we speak. I am a bit excited, will this be a renewed loveaffair? (having played PG ... dunno, 15 years ago?) The screenshots looked promising, so fingers crossed.

I got it - 128 download rate took nearly an hour (Not a big download though).

Vanilla 1.0 installed in a breeze and fired up fine - just clicked a quick couple of moves in Poland and I'm...

VERY HAPPY!

Heaven may have just returned to earth.

Mine was going at 1.9 mb /sec not sure if the downloads are capped? Not complaining thought it took 3 minutes for everything.

I love the breadth of this game going by the scenario selection screen - great voice over too. Man - everything's here down to the good ol' turn advisory screen!

Very late on the east coast of Australia now...

Catch you all later.

After playing the first tutorial scenario and starting the second, my impression is that it is a beautiful, beautiful Panzer General wargame. If you've already played PG then you probably won't learn much in the tutorial however if this is your first time then the tutorial is wonderful with a lot of timely popup information. For example if you attack a city and the artillery fires on you then a information box will pop up explaining defensive fire and support units.

I signed up for a multiplayer account. Never tried it but I hear Slitherine has a great multiplayer function.

The big thing for me is the scenario editor. In a word, AWESOME! I have never edited any kind of scenario for any game before and in about 5 minutes I had thrown together a working map. Just choose whatever tileset you want and drop it onto the hex. It seems like you can pretty much make any kind of scenario you want and you don't need to know a single damn thing about programming to do it! That should extend the life of the game a lot if there's some kind of system in place for uploading and downloading user created scenarios!

I agree totally with canuck it's absolutely flawless and the visuals are beautiful...sounds are top notch as well. This is a great package and it runs smoothly and with ease on my low end netbook!

I want to try the editor out sometime soon as well canuck I like making things more than playing the games sometimes.

That's a plus 1.



Well done guys, it looks beautiful, plays smoothly, UI is intuitive, nice music, good tutorial, so all in all a *must buy* for those (ageing LOL) PG players of days gone by. It really is a PG for the 21 century.
Oh, and no bugs so far, no crashes.

No bugs are crashes for me either so far.

On the harder difficulties the AI is absolutely PUNISHING at times. I was playing Operation Bagration since it was a favorite of mine from PGF and the Soviet Horde steamrolled right through everything. Time to relearn anything you might know and prepare for some real competition even from the AI.

For the record, Bagration is one of the most difficult scenarios in the game. But it is winnable in single scenario mode, I played it myself yesterday. And in campaign mode it should be even easier than that.

You guys are lucky! My download will not start. I get the option to "Run or Save" and the progress dialog box pops up but it never actually starts. Sounds like they seriously underestimated the demand for this one

Edit: I kept trying and on the 11th attempt its starting to download so keep trying if yours does not start.

Kevin
