this is a bit of an odd request and I hope I won't be chastised for this.
I'm looking for savegame files from a couple of missions from GZM (based on the name of the mission file in the editor):
Mareth Line (Allied) (This one most of all!) Operation Market Garden (Allied)
Panther Kursk 1943 (German) Stalingrad, both large maps (German) Sevastopol 1942 (German)
And there are a couple of Russian ones which I can't find right now.
Unfortunately, I really haven't got the time to play the dozens of missions in each campaign to get to these missions, but I'd love to play at least a few of these which I have checked out in the editor. If anyone happens to have a save file from the beginning or relatively early in the mission and would care to share them with me, I would be most grateful!
As far as I know, I should be able to just drop the files in the savegame folder and load them, right?
If anyone has a better idea on how to achieve this, I'm open for suggestions as well.
Unfortunately I dont have savegames for the maps that you ask for, but it is of course possible to cheat through the campaign to get to the Missions
I considered this (I might find some other fun maps on the way after all), but I couldn't make it work. I tried the following: open console, type @password("www.dtf.ru"), then @win(0) - (also tried this with @win(1)). Normally, this should result in an instant win of the current mission if I'm not mistaken, but it didn't work so I assumed GZM disabled cheats somehow. Do you know anything about this?
I'm a little bit intimidated by the GZM forum... my Russian is a little rusty to say the least
Use capital letter for p and w and it should work-does for me.
Thanks, that worked.
And it came exactly as I feared, I ended up playing most of the missions anyway. I just felt bad skipping these missions which visibly had a lot of effort put in them. The France/Belgium missions from the Allied campaign maps are really cool, there was a talented map maker at work there.
I now have a savegame for this mission if anyone is interested, has anyone here played and beaten the Mareth Line mission?
The path finding seems to be broken, even out in the open desert. Vehicles seem to be circumnavigating huge chunks of invisible walls, it's very frustrating because the map is hard enough as it is.
Edit: Never mind, there seems to be only one large invisible wall in the starter area, the rest has been okay so far. As "okay" as Blitzkrieg path finding goes anyway.
I know for a fact that this map was made by the same sadist who made the Sevastopol mission. Maybe it's a tiny bit easier, but not by much.
Aftermath of the assault on the heavily fortified town of Medenine. Literally couldn't penetrate the defences any other way. Artillery had run out of ammo (you don't have a supply depot), tanks would fall victim to the artillery and mortar barrage too easily. The infantry assault managed advance into the city but ran out of steam eventually. The what little infantry I had left, I sorted into small teams of soldiers armed with either only Brens or submachine guns, who would go out to clean the town with brutal efficiency.
As clunky and frail as infantry is in BK, I realised that managing individual soldiers can be quite powerful and often yields better results than just commanding an entire squad. 2-3 Brens can mow down an entire enemy squad with minimal losses.
I downloaded the google translate app on my phone. I literally only point my phone camera at the screen and google translate will almost instantly come up with the English text. It's a bit wonky but it does the job.
Just when I thought the mission got a bit easier because I now control a supply depot and can finally use artillery again... A massive counter-attack retakes virtually everything I managed secure over the weekend in a matter of minutes. Even on my third attempt I still got steamrolled. This map is just insane.
I am now playing Sevastopol (never finished this mission en previous GZM versions), and have saved some savegames. Every savegame is about 20/30 MB in WinRAR. If you want them, send me your email and i'll try to share in drive.
It's the worst mission I've ever tried to play. You have to decrease screen up to 1024*768: the game gets very very slow, though you get a good PC with 8GB RAM and SSD.
I also never finished Sevastopol in GZM 7, in part because there was a bug and I couldn't advance, and in part after ~20 hours of getting shot by enemy artillery I was starting to develop PTSD.
I haven't had any frame rate issues in GZM yet. I'm playing on a 3.33Ghz i5, with 8GB RAM and a GTX970 and sometimes the mission will lag for a few seconds after loading, but afterwards it's a smooth 60fps @ 1920x1080.
Mine is i5-4460 3.20GHhz, 8 GB RAM, AMD RADEON R9 200. This is the only mission that lags, and I've played all the biggest maps from Kursk with no problems. Playing 1920*1080? Max.in my Blitzkrieg Exclusive Pack is 1600*900. Is there any patch for bigger display resolution?
Check if you have received one link for savegames.
No need to patch anything, just open the config.cfg file in your GZM9 folder (you can do this with notepad) and then CTRL+F a number from your resolution (like 1600, or 900, or 16 should all work for you), and replace the 1600x900x16 with 1920x1080x16. Watch out though, there are two resolutions in the config, I believe the other one is for the main menu, make sure to change both!
And yes, thanks very much, I've received your link and it works, except that the minimap is just showing the black and white squares, but it's not the end of the world.
I've also noticed in your latest savegame (was curious how far you got) that the game CTD's when killing the AAA you left alive in your territory?

Warlord: Lads, does anyone know if in the Burma Road map (Chinese Campaign) of GZM11, the Jap bomber and strike planes ever run out? I have been shooting them down for about three hours now, and they just keep showing up! My strategy is based on air supremacy...

Squire James: Try and load it in the map editor and have a look at the aviation section. If the numbers seem normal, it might be a scripting thing (if so, that'd be rather neat)

Warlord: Thank you, mate.
