Panzer Corps 2 Patch 2 Notes

Localization

  • Added French, Polish and Portuguese localizations
  • Updated Chinese and Russian localizations
  • The game will now display localized hex names over the map and in the UI (will not work with old saves)

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a few more random crashes
  • Fixed crashes when working with “Lost Units” list
  • Fixed crash when repeatedly pressing Esc in briefings
  • Fixed crash when starting a new random map
  • Fixed autosaves and ironman saves which could be created with wrong state (inactive “End Turn” button etc.)
  • Fixed attacks sometimes “unsuppressing” units without dealing damage
  • Fixed aircraft getting an initiative bonus when attacking from close terrain hex
  • Fixed ambushed units attacking the ambusher even if they normally cannot attack such unit
  • Fixed bug where attacking unit did not lose attack action if it did not have a chance to shoot in the combat it initiated
  • Fixed incorrect calculation of negative suppression between combat phases
  • Fixed aircraft spotting in cloudy weather
  • Fixed spotting bug when a unit retreated
  • Fixed weather forecast icon after loading a save
  • Fixed “Anti-tank Veteran” and “Anti-infantry Veteran” awards for aircraft
  • Fixed wrong strength when giving overstrength to prototype units
  • Fixed the problem with “Retrograde” player trait where available units disappeared earlier than they should
  • Fixed the problem with “Slow Modernization” player trait where transport upgrade and overstrength was impossible after 3 unit upgrades
  • Fixed replacements of deployed units during Deployment Phase (no longer limited by 50% of unit’s max strength)
  • Fixed scrolling in Event Log (History section of Unit Details)
  • Fixed “gamma correction” setting
  • Fixed some maps where embarked transports could not leave the port

Performance

  • Improved Landscape Tessellation implementation. Now, even with Tessellation off the game (in particular, rivers) should look decent.
  • Added new setting to Options->Video: “Landscape Geometry”. It can be used to further reduce GPU load on weaker hardware, or (at a higher setting) used as an alternative to tessellation, which might be faster on some machines.

Improvements

  • Stats panel now shows actual move points instead of max
  • River hexes now show “Vulnerable Position” and “Blocks Supply” icons in terrain panel
  • Combat log viewer (opened with L hotkey) will now include logs for all predictions visible on the screen when it’s invoked
  • In Options->Video “Save” button is only required to change window mode and resolution. All other options are applied instantly.

Multiplayer

  • Fixed crashes which occurred when loading existing games (some old games can still have problems, but new games started with 1.0.8 should not have them)
  • Fixed several issues causing the players to go out of sync in online MP
  • Fixed password protection not working for random maps
    – Minsk map now allows simultaneous movement
  • Small balance fix in Steel vs. Steamroller scenario

Panzer Corps 2 is available on PC via Steam.
