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.

Unfortuntely i followed the advice to change the screen resolution to false but it is a locked file, so it won't let me change it... any advice?

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.


The text edit says "Dosbox" is not able to be edited???
Is there also an easy way to make Fantasy General run in this port? It's freeware/abandonware just as well.
One of my all time favorite games! Thanks for porting this!!!
Thanks for porting! I also edited the dosbox.conf file to make it work.
