Game Description:
Panzer General is turn-based game, set on operational level hex maps. One plays lone scenarios from either Axis or Allied side and against a computer or human opponent. In Campaign Mode, the player assumes the role of a German Generalissimus against the Allied computer.

Panzer General is an operational-level game, and units approximate battalions, although unit size and map scale from one scenario to the next are elastic. While the names and information for the units are reasonably accurate, the scenarios only approximate historical situations.

Its novel feature was to link individual scenarios into a campaign spanning World War II from 1939 to 1945. Units are able to gain experience and become stronger, where success in one battle would award the player prestige to upgrade units, acquire additional units, and select a better scenario for the next battle.

Personal Notes:
A great war game.

It is possible to re upload this game? I like very much this game and I can´t play anymore since I migrate from PC to Mac. I thank you very much if you can do that. Thanks anyway.
Re-uploaded on this date.

There may be a small issue on Mac OS X 10.8 - Mountain Lion - that I forgot to fix but it is very easy. If the game crashes on startup do the following:

Fix for 10.8 =

Right click on Panzer General app - show package contents - go in to resources

Open the dosbox.conf file with textedit (or whatever)

Where it says fullscreen = true - change it to fullscreen = false

Save changes.

Run the app as normal - will work without issue.

Alt+Enter to switch from Windowed Mode / Full screen mode and vice-versa.
I can't seem to download the game. I joined using a google signing since your Facebook doesn't work.

Try again the links died.
How are you able to Save a Campaign Game.  I played the Poland 1939 scenario and tried to save my progress and it did not Save.  Is there a certain procedure that I need to follow?
Nevermind I resolved the Saving issue.  Regards, love this game.
Glad you figured it out.
having the same problem with saving and cant figure it out
Do not run the game from the mounted image. Copy the files to your Application Folder. see installation instructions.
I've downloaded the game to my iMac.  Opens and runs fine in campaign mode (poland 39)  Only issue I've found is that when I save a game and exit, it disappears when I reopen the game…. the only saved game is called "wave" in slot #1.   Any ideas?
just read previous post… will try to do that next.
A wise man once said it is better to keep silent and be thought a fool than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt :-)
Works fine now.
crashes when i try to out it into fullscreen. osx 10.9.3?
I've played this game in Yosemite (10.0.1), and so far it's worked flawlessly. Good job!
Awesome. Works perfectly in 10.9.5.

This sure brings back memories....thanks for porting!
