Questions again

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East: The German-Soviet War 1941-1945 is a turn-based World War II strategy game stretching across the entire Eastern Front. Gamers can engage in an epic campaign, including division-sized battles with realistic and historical terrain, weather, orders of battle, logistics and combat results.

The critically and fan-acclaimed Eastern Front mega-game Gary Grigsby’s War in the East just got bigger and better with Gary Grigsby’s War in the East: Don to the Danube! This expansion to the award-winning War in the East comes with a wide array of later war scenarios ranging from short but intense 6 turn bouts like the Battle for Kharkov (1942) to immense 37-turn engagements taking place across multiple nations like Drama on the Danube (Summer 1944 – Spring 1945).

Questions again

Post by Kharkov »

First of all, just want to say, OMG, at last!!! Cant wait for this game! Been a huge fan of Gary since PAC War days :)

Anyway a few questions...

1) What screen resolutions will be in game? My desktop is at 1920 x 1200 so hopefully I can go up to this value.

2) Saw the screenies and love them but what do the different colour counters represent? Different Army groups?

3) When you click on a division can you see the units represented as Nato symbols or little graphics of T-34's, Panthers, Tigers etc? Hopefully the latter as in WIR as I think it adds to the game a lot.

Thanks in advance,
Steve

I don't know the answer for #1.

But for #2 the colors are to easily identify the different corps (Axis) and Army (Soviet) units. Your opponent won't see the colors though.

#3. The icons are currently displayed as Nato type symbols.

When you click on a hex you will get to see a pop-up if you want of each AFV type with the number in the hex, along with infantry, artillery, flak, etc. like in WiR.

Will it be possible for Players to reorganize their Corps or Armies and reassign units within the Corps or Armies?

Excellent! I assumed as much but wanted to make sure.

The game has an expandable/resizable windows mode (like in War Between the States) which supports any resolution. I have it running at 1680x1050 on my desktop.
