I play Panzer Corps' Grand Campaigns and I've made some changes, thanks to your great tool. But those changes aren't effective with my current campaign but only with new scenarios. Is there a way to change that?

Thanks!

Hi mgarnett I have just managed to get your editor to load my anti-virus software was blocking it,first impression look to be very interesting in fact this just might be the reason I will now go ahead and buy the full version of this game,I have been sitting on the fence,and reading the messages here in the forum,and it appears that the game is a must have for me now,thanks for all your hard work in creating this brilliant piece of software!

Is this the latest version and if not where is the link to download the newest version?

UPDATE = OK I TOOK THE PLUNGE AND PURCHASED THE FULL VERSION OF THE GAME AND IT WAS YOUR EDITOR THAT CONVINCED ME TO GET THE GAME.

Hi Guys,

Myu apologies for the late response, I've been out of the forum for the lasy few weeks. Thanks all for the kind words and please let me know if you have suggestions for improvement.

@deckarudo,

Can you let me know what steps you are taking to edit and save your data. That'll help me track down the problem if there is one or talk you through something that you might be doing wrong.

Cheers

Mark

Mark, prepare yourself, because with Afrika Korps we will need a little revision.

Does anyone know what the limit is for new additions to the equipment database,plus is there a limit for the in game unit art work,and if there is then what is it as I have been reading the manual and I either missed it or it does not say?

I don't think there's a limit for the equipment or the efx file.

I have added equipment starting with ID# 10000 (to avoid usind ID#s included in future official eqp-files) so there appears to be no real limit like the good Von Paulus said.

I stand prepared! That's why I haven't really updated the editor recently, I've been waiting for the next major patch to see what changes it makes to the way PzC stores data.

If anybody has any inside info, it would be good to know what changes are planned beforehand so I can get the new version out as quickly as possible.

Cheers

Mark

Mark I don't deal with the equipment so I don't know much. I've noticed there are three new columns:
Theatre, Usable Transports and Transport Category



In terms of efx file there's a major change. We've now a table of aliases.

# This file is used to assign various effects to units													
													
FormatVersion	2												

# Aliases
# These can be referenced from the next table.
# If a given alias does not exist, the game generates files names by adding extension to it.
#
# Alias	Anim file	Sound file
XXX	Infantry1	Infantry1
YYY	Infantry2	Infantry2
ZZZ	Infantry3	Infantry3
													
# Effects table													
# Assigns shooting animations and movement sounds to unit icons													
# Offset is used to properly align animation with unit's icon. Order is the same as in the unit icon file: big icon facing right, big icon facing left, small icon facing right, small icon facing left													
# Each unit can have up to 3 different animations, for ground attack and air attack separately.													
#	Offsets				Ground attack animations			Air attack animatons			Movement sounds		
# Unit icon	Offset1	Offset2	Offset3	Offset4	Anim1	Anim2	Anim3	Anim1	Anim2	Anim3	Sound1	Sound2	Sound3


In format 1, if, for example, we had an attack sound called "gun", we had also to have an animation file called "gun". A lot of times those animations were just copy, clones of the originals.
This way we can use the aliases table, avoiding to have more clone animation files.
If you want I can send you the efx file of my sound mod, already in the new format, for you to understand how it works.

Please pm if you want my file. I can give you also an equipment file.

Hi All,

A new version has been uploaded.

@Dumnorix,

I've put some more information in the first post about how to use the "useable transports" list to edit a unit. Let me know if this wasn't what you were looking for and I'll try to help further.

Cheers

Mark

You don't install. You can copy the folder to any place in your hardisk and for example create a shortcut of PzCEdit.exe in your desktop. So basically, you just have to execute PzCEdit.exe.

Yep, as VPaulus says, just put into any folder you like and double click on the EXE.

Let me know if you have any problems.

OK - I gave this editor a full chance to bring up my Modern War Corps to level Africa Corps patch 1.10......but...
I can't see the new unit transport entrys - the editor write right, but I can't set the transport classes for every unit - I cant see the new entrys in the editor.

Not usable yet !

Hi Dumnorix,

I've looked through the editor and I can't find any problems. I'll send you a PM, but I can't see any bugs with the transport classes.

If you can give me an example or explain how I can reproduce the error I'll have a look at it.

Cheers

Mark
