TECHNICAL QUESTIONS ANSWERS
I can't choose my password as second player.
I got "Incorrect Password " message.
What happen ?
Your opponent has found the Password Bug !
Please read the Bugs Section to solve this problem.
My PG2 Game crash (back to windows) every time i try to load the first turn of my opponent's.
What happen ?
Your opponent has probably the French PG2 (and not you)
You have found the Compatibility Bug !
Please read the Bugs Section to solve this problem.
My opponent can't load my first turn (his game crash every time) but I can load this turn.
What happen ?
You probably have the French PG2 (and maybe not your opponent)
You have just found the Compatibility Bug !
Please read the Bugs Section to solve this problem.
The Replay crash when i want to see it or show strange things (different units locations...)
What happen ?
Replay sometimes does not work ! All you can do is not watching it.
This result from Bugs or from Restarted Turns (Cheaters)
Please read the Replay Section.
Where do i find more infos about Leaders and their abilities ?
How do i get a chance to get a leader ?
You can read this File  (french / English)...
For more infos, read the Strategy / Tips Section
Each 100 experience points, unit get 10% chance to get a leader.
I don't understand how Tanks can Overrun other units.
Will tank overrun unit or just fire at it?
In the same turn, a Tank can overrun one (several) weakened unit(s) and continue to Move and Fire. ONLY if the Combat Forecast give NO damage for you and ALL damage for the weakened unit(s)! Cost is one munition per unit overrun.Try multiple attacks to weaken unit(s).
How to check the Pbem Settings chosen by my opponent ?
Maybe they are not the ones we decided on.
You need to use the Lasse Jensen Email Checker : Press F8 to load the turn send by your opponent, then F2 and F4 : You just have to read the prestige settings used.
How many Prestige Points (PP) do i get ?
By capturing Cities, Objectives, Deploy Zones ?
By re-capturing them ?
Cities, Airports worth 40 PP, Deploy Zones 60 PP, Objective 80 PP.(this may change)
These values are when playing at 100%, to be modified with Prestige Settings.
NOTHING (O PP) for re-capturing !

2) CAMPAIGNS QUESTIONS
CAMPAIGNS QUESTIONS ANSWERS
In Novgorod (Blitzkrieg Campaign), the computer win in first turn. 
How can i prevent the computer from getting Brilliant victory?
The computer win by capturing your victory hex. You can deploy troops around this hex only during the deploy turn (BEFORE turn 1).On turn 1, units can be deployed only around your supply hex, very far.You probably missed the deploy turn by clicking too quickly. Load your last savegame or the autosave.
In Malta (Blitzkrieg Campaign), i can't deploy my units on the island. There is no Supply hex. What can i do? You can deploy troops on and near the island only during the Deploy turn (BEFORE turn 1). After that, you can't deploy your units as you don't have any Supply hex.You probably missed the deploy turn by clicking too quickly. Load your last savegame or the autosave.You may also deploy troops if you manage to capture the English Harbour nearby

3) NEW STUFF QUESTIONS
NEW STUFF QUESTIONS ANSWERS
Some units in a new scenario or new campaign appear as bridges and can't attack
What is wrong?
This mean you need to use a New Equipement Roster, because the author used new units not 
available in original SSi Equipement. 
Check "what is it" and "how to install new equipement" section below.
I heard about New Equipment Rosters.
What is it ?
The New Equipment Roster is a feature made by PG2 Fans (not supported by SSI) in order to use New and Modified units (based on Real History). Check the New Stuff Section.
Very Interesting in most games but Forbidden for Pbem Email games (like IWC Club)
Because your opponent has probably not the same Equipment so bugs/crashs may appear.
I want to install a PG2 New Equipement Roster...
What do i need to do ?
Go to the New Stuff Section for Equipements.
Backup your original equipement files "equip97.eqp" and "equip97.???" located in PG2 folder.
Then replace these files with new equipement files, provided in scenario or campaign zipfile.
Be carefull, the install procedure is different for Waffenkammer Equipement. (read doc file)
??? is txt (US/UK PG2), fra (French PG2), deu (German PG2)
Equipements are not compatible with all versions : download the correct Equipement.
I heard about PG2 New Scenarios.
Is that True ?
Yes it is ! And some are very interesting.
Check the New Stuff Section.
I want to try a PG2 New Scenario...
What do i need to do ?
Go to the New Stuff Section for Scenarios.
Unzip files *.scn, *.ply, *.txt, *.fra  and *.deu  into PG2 "USERSCEN" folder. 
If *.fra or *.deu file is missing, copy *.txt file into a new file *.fra or *.deu.
Run PG2 and choose the new scenario (in Blue Color).
