You must download the program on this page.
Just unzip content in you Panzer General 2 folder. Then launch the program named "LauncherForPG2". With this program, you don't need program to switch datup like "Graphic switch" or my "Datup switcher".
For first use, you must install equipment files you want to use. But it's the same manipulation for update the equipment files.
Select the equipment you want to install/update, click on "Open Equipment Files (Efiles) folder".
A explorer window are opened, so copy equipment files inside, and close the window.
Now, when you use the equipment you have selected, the program use automatically ( by copy ) these files and switch datup.
You can now repeat this manipulation for another equipment to install...
Select the used equipment of campaign, then click on "Open SCENARIO folder (campaign)"
A explorer window are opened, so copy all campaigns files inside, perhaps you must unzip all ".map files" can be found on my MapFinder page
So close the window after you have copied all necessaries files.
After that you must install .SHP files, the graphics map files.
The best solution is to dowload the Suite program made by Luis Guzman find on this page.
Unzip Suite into you Panzer General 2 folder and run it.
First, check in suite the the folder and gameset used.
To make that go to "Tools"/"Settings folder and files" and check if game folder is correct, then check on upper left part the options "From exe gameset" and choose the same file defined in "Program to run" in Launcher.
Then close dialog and you now can check missing files.
It's important when you switch efile in my program and you want check missing files to close Suite before. And launch after the Suite for that Suite can read gameset and select right folder.
You can with suite to download missing files with my FTP or download each file with web site.
You can now run your favorite equipment, the launcher switch datup, change executable and install efile automatically when you click on "Launch game" or use in tray bar.Any question? Please ask here
Have fun with Panzer General 2.
