convert or load up

Post by sandersk » 2022-09-12 19:44, Monday

Hi all,
i have read that open general can use pg2 scenarios and i found this site http://www.dirk-cremer.de/hg/eng/pg3d.htm

i have tried reading the information on the OpenSuite to see how to convert or load up the pg2 scenarios from that site.

but i can not make any sense of the information i do have quite bad dyslexia and i find lots of text very confusing.

is there a easy-ish way to do it or a video showing me how to play these in opengeneral .

thank you for a great game i really enjoy and your time reading this.

hope it makes sense.

Keith

Hi Keith, welcome to our forum.

I can't answer your question because I don't know about the technical things.

But I would like to ask you if you are really only interested in single scenarios or in campaigns? Because: a lot of the campaigns offered on Dirk Cremer's homepage have already been converted to OpenGeneral and are immediately playable e.g. after installing the CC-Pack.
Completed CCs: 1x4, 2x3, 3x2, 4, 5x3, 6, 7x2, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18x3, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 56x2, 57, 59, 60x3, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67x2, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72x2, 73, 74, 75, 76x5, MTC I
Completed CCCs: 7

afaik the shp file format what the pg2 used for gui and graphics is no longer supported in opengen

otoh, basically all important user-made (and the original) pg2 efiles have been converted for opengen, you can find them in pg2 and cc packs

when you find a campaign, what hasn't been added to the aforementioned packages, just unpack it to the proper the efile (mostly the scenario folder)
