Postby Voxcon » 01 Apr 2009, 15:43

Hi Kroah m8 hope im not disturbing you with other projects :oops: I came here to ask for your help agian please because your the only good expert i know. Concerning two games on the same engine/Allied General and Panzer in Windows the problem i have is there are two avaible editors but they both old and clunky like DOS and do not work well with a modern os.Basicly they are unuseable i have tried and result allways end's up with me in a screaming fit.

The information i gave give you is the games came various formats

Allied General/Windows/Playstation/vers 1.1/1.2
Panzer General/Windows/DOS/Playstation/vers 1.2/1.3

Panzer General 1.2 exe fixes for campagin game only bug. Panzer General 1.3 exe fixes prestige bug in pbem.Not shure what the Allied General exe 1.1 and 1.2 fixes?

There's also two wip clones of the game

Hi Voxcon,
Allied General is a pretty big game.

Do you have tried DosBox with both editors?

Yes kroah i tried messing with the editors in Dosbox it's very messy often we crash out.But i use dosbox before that's not the problem the editor themselves are badly made i belive.

Those other editors you listed are for game saves only like cheating.
I got these from that other link for map editing

Map Set Editor by David Smid v 1.2 (203K)

PzG Map Editor by Charles Tyson v 0.2 (157K)

are for Dos version of the game.So at moment im trying to get Dos version of game workin correctly it's proving be a lot of hassle so far.

I upped 12mb liteWin version its all you need minus video/speech other stuff uneeded
