Played but I cant enjoy a game where I dont see the action. I dont want the probabilities of a computer sets who wins and who loses or what factors count it. Because there's always those battles won with fewer men and resource with a cunning and a great tactical position and a well thought for strategy. Thats why I enjoy Men of War more; it has crappy graphics, but hell it is a better game just in gameplay wise, the voice acting still sucks and it doesnt have skirmish mode.

Doesn't the game have a language setting somewhere? Try searching through the game folder for any .cfg or config or some such file, open it, see if it says german or deutsch anywhere.

Go to your Mainfolder, open settings.txt and edit the language settings to:

Quote
gui=
{
language=l_english
}

My settings.txt looks the same and my game is in english. :( Maybe it's a problem with your OS that your changes to the settings.txt have not been applied by the game? I don't know, because my gaming pc is still running with XP.  :-\

Did you try starting the game as an admin?

played a lot HoI II with a friend on lan,   mostley Italy Germany , 

It was just satisfying to see my victorious Italian troops taking Africa and advancing at the ost front. Sometimes we “destroyed” the game by doing things that interrupted this heavy triggered game. We never finished a campaign, we just played to the point where it was obvious that we are going to win the war within the next three years….
So, never made an Invasion on the Beaches of Florida,  but once we took some parts south America, great operation base to zero US Fleet activities, helping to Japs AI who managed to nearly screw it always up ….    Once the US invaded the main Island of Japan in mid 1943 !!!!!

So, who is the new HoI?  Better than HoI II ?

They are different, but I quite like them both. Then again, HoI III was the first one I played, so it might feel different if you are already familiar with HoI II.

It is sad that Hoi III has such a bad performance. It was anoyingly slow when I reached 1943.
If they only had programmed it for parallel computing. Maybe I try it again when I have a faster PC.

I will give this a go tonight, I used to be a big fan of graphically simple games with more complex playing elements :)

Well you'll like HoI 3 if you liked Hoi I but the second sequence is different.
Not by much but HoI 2 was my first HoI game and its difficult to adapt to the new system.
But HoI 3 offers me more possibilities and I can't wait to try them!

Most stupid thing ever made on HoI 2:
Invaded the mountains in Equador by an air assault and failing to take over that country in 1947.
I invaded them with 47 AIRBORNE DIVISIONS!
In the end it was neccesary for me to do an amphibious assault...

Well, most stupid thing I ever made...

When I was totally new to HoI II  I didn’t dare to play a big nation, so I thought I could try to be Franko …        well,  if Franco would have screwed up like me,  the flag of Spain would still look like this.








Oh yes! I remember! It was when I and my friend played together, he was playing Germany as always (that way I cant screw so much up, besides by playing bad I would just “replay” history) So, the “bitter peace” trigger did not come up for some reason and so he was fighting somewhere far east in Russian territory against the last bits of the Russian army.  England was already a German pupped regime and Ireland an Italian naval outpost. After bringing down south Africa my friend ordered me to Invade Brazil by a certain death line in order to get a nice operations base there against the last real enemy, USA.
So, I made a new army group, full mechanised ,  landed sucesfull in Brazil,  and then there was the epic fail….  I haven’t thought about the “bad roads” in South America,   so it took me nearly two years to fight brazil and the other countries down, not because of heavy fighting,    my army was just not suitable for the terrain. Epic fail in the planning….
