  • WW3 Games/ Africa Games

    I'm looking for a World War 3 game or an African (modern Africa) wargame, preferably hex-based.
    I can deal with HoI, but I'd prefer something TOAW instead.

    Suggestions?

    winSPMBT has African Senarios and Campaigns, or you can create your own. It's based on Steel Panthers and the best part it's FREE, although there is a CD you can buy that adds a few extras. The Site gives a fairly good run down on the game, plus there is good support on the Shrapnel Games Boards. Hope this helps.

        Downloaded WinSPMBT.



        Almost exactly what I was looking for. A little more tactical then I would like, but it takes me back to Civil War Generals.

        The bombardment feature is a little more difficult to gain control of, but I think i'll get it.

            Is there any way to speed up WinSPMBT?

              In which way?, there are a lot of settings in the preferences screen. for example scroll speeds, message speeds, fast artillery vs shell by shell to name a few, all will speed the game up.

                Scroll and movement.....

                The scroll jumps for me and movement is just horrid. My only turnoffs to the game.

                  I'll check see how I've set mine up, and get back to you. It's been some time since I did mine.

                    OK, In the first window, Game Options, that comes up BEFORE you press Play winSPMBT. Press the Misc Tab and set up the following settings:

                    Map Scroll.............16 pixels
                    Scroll Speed..........35 milisec
                    Shotgun................0
                    Graphic delay.........20 milisec
                    Unit Move Delay.....20 milisec

                    OK now press Play winSPMBT, in you initial screen press the Preferences button. At the top right side set your Message Delay to 2 and down about half way set your Artillery to Fast by clicking on the button below.

                    This is how my speed setting are on mine, it took some playing around to achieve this, however slightly different setting may work better on your Rig. Let me know how you make out.

                      I thoroughly enjoy the paratrooper drops.

                      It really defines the infantry combat with paratroopers. Suppressing fire, then move close to grenade the position and move on. Aircraft support on heavy positions while you maneuver around.

                      The Vietnam scenarios are also very good. Helicopters are what defines the scenarios. Sending troops cross-map, pouring the fire on, then flitting away to hit another enemy position.
