New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

  • Panzer General II on Windows 7?

    Does anyone know how to get Panzer General II to work on a 64 bit Windows 7 machine? It's the only game I own and I kinda like it...wish I could make it work, but it won't even install.

    I have no experience with Windows 7, but does 7 have an option to run a program in 95/98 or XP mode?

      Hey, Jim.

      Yeah, it does, but I can't get the drive to install the disk in order to even select the earler mode.

          I believe that to be the easiest way out. I could not get Panzer General II to run properly under Windows Vista, so I plan on buying it from Good Old Games for my Windows 7 PC.

            Good call. For $10 it's worth the headache unless you just happen to enjoy being the Sys Admin for archaic PCs or like really getting into the nuts and bolts of newer operating systems.

              I paid the $10 and downloaded the game from GOG. It didn't work either, kept on "encountering a problem" and having to close.

                Have you contacted Good Old Games' Technical Support? According to von Adler's post in this thread at JP's Panzers:

                I guess they could have asked someone of us before grabbing the 2.20, but they did make it fully compatible with Win 7 and Win Vista, so I am not going to complain.
                This version can be recommended to all that have problems.
                And that is what decided me on buying Panzer General II from Good Old Games. Now I'm not so sure.

                  Not yet, I'll give em' a try and let you know how it turns out. Most likely it will be a day or two before I can get to it.

                  Thanks for the tip.

                    OK, got it running. Seems to work and look just like the original! Thanks for all the help, everyone!

                      Glad to hear it, llkinak.

                      Now I guess it's time for me to buy my own copy from Good Old Games.
