Re: Someone made the game available on Steam.

This guy who has uploaded WZ to steam, he / she hasn't said anything on if they will support the steam version, or even acknowledge that the version isn't supported by this community here. The fact he just posted the source code for the game, gives me the sneaking suspicion he isn't going to support...

Re: Release 3.3.0

Have to agree here. adding the timer on mission 1 isn't a big deal for me anymore. while I admit I hated it at first. it still easy to stockpile a lot of cash. So overall I like the changes. Not really played the game since 2.3.9. So nice work and thanks to the devs that maintain this awesome game.

Re: Ground Shaker VS Hellstorm

OK thanks for that, I will switch to hellstorm. Yes the extra range is nice, but if hellstorm can out DPS ground shaker, that is good. Also hellstorm will / should be useful for fast moving units like cyborgs. So anyway thanks for that, unless anyone else has some opinions on the two?

Ground Shaker VS Hellstorm

I'm wondering what people's opinions are on these two for the campaign? and which you prefer and why? I'm currently using 10 ground shakers in Gamma 1, I find that the heavy hitting units (even though they do have a slow reload) are really damaging. I tested destroying two fortresses, with 5 units e...

Re: Someone made the game available on Steam.

I posted a couple of times in the steam WZ forum and linked to this post. Some people seem to be having issues saving with the steam version. I was surprised to see it on steam. But I would agree, the game isn't ready to be on steam yet. Edit Got banned on the WZ steam forum, ban reason causing a dr...

Re: Is the AG worth using in the campaign?

Thanks for the answer, won't bother with AG until the next campaign then. To me, lancers out perform cannons in terms of rare damage, but you are right, cannons do have more health. I tried to do a few tests, attach a single lancer to a hero commander, and see how much damage it can do to a rookie c...

Is the AG worth using in the campaign?

Well I just got the assault gun in beta 6, so far, I'm just using lancers, (I just find that the heavy cannon isn't worth using) I've not played the campaign in ages. So wondering at this stage, would it be worth converting some of my lancers to AG? or keep them as lancers? (I also know that the AG ...

Re: The game is too hard

Sorry didn't realise it was a necro post. I understand the the hard cap of 15 is indented, but then again, it does mean, you have to realise in advance, that there is a cap of 15, and that that cap does carry over between missions. Even though the current game version doesn't tell you that. Which is...

Re: The game is too hard

I built 15 trucks in the alpha campaign, however, when moving to the beta campaign, it seems that the truck unit limit isn't reset. If I recycle some trucks in alpha, say 5, I can build 5 in beta. But I would have assumed, the unit limit would have been reset whem moving from campaign to campaign? S...

Re: The game is too hard

I'm now ran into another issue, I'm on the first beta mission, for some reason I can't build anymore trucks, I've brought 40 units from alpha, (no trucks) I tried to recycle the two trucks on the first mission, to make them hover, but it saying that I can't build anymore. Yet it will allow me to bui...

Re: The game is too hard

I would also say that the heavy cannon might need a bit of a tweak, I just feel once you get the heavy cannon, its useless and obsolete, lancers out perform the HC by miles. I dont know when I will get the assault cannon? (as its been a while since I played the game) But maybe it could do with a dam...

Re: The game is too hard

That was a very detailed explanation, I realise that using tracked units was a mistake in this build, but it didn't cripple me in earlier builds of the game. I managed to redo the mission with Berserk Cyborg's mod, that reduced the cyborg output, which really helped a lot. Plus used half track units...

Re: The game is too hard

Thank you for the mod, that does correct the issue, I had no problems doing the level, only lost a few units in the process. But I am able to beat it with time to spare. I no longer saw a blockage with the mod, so it clearly did the trick. Thank you, that fixed the issue for me, and I also couldn't ...

Re: The game is too hard

That is indeed odd, because in the last V2 build, I had zero problems with alpha 12, just getting a beach head and start pushing up. once I got the hover tech, mortar team is very effective. But in regards to 3.3.0, the game does feel a lot harder, and yes, HMG and cannons seem to be no where near a...

Re: The game is too hard

sorry for double posting, but I tried to redo the level but now I've hit a new issue, the game is crashing either while loading the save, or ingame. save and logs included, if you want me to open a ticket, I will, but thought I will post here for feedback, as this mission is just not behaving nicely...
