Them packaging everything into a single multi-installer caused quite a bunch of people to get errors when installing, but it's working for me again.

As much as I like some of the ideas of the series, such as combat being less lethal, it can be very tiresome to chase around all those tiny units that survive a serious beating.

The resources are also very tight compared to a game like Panzer General/Panzer Corps. That's both good and bad. It's good because Panzer Corps in particular can be a bit on the easy side without penalties for the player, but it's bad because it means you often can't upgrade parts of your core forces whilst the AI tends to be ahead in the upgrade curve both in the equipment file availability dates (it gets the infantry types of a certain year of the war before you do) and in actual on-map availability.

Combine that with experience on the one hand being not all that important but on the other hand necessary to avoid serious losses, leading the player to using elite replacements whenever possible and you get a situation where it can be difficult to keep your force in good shape even on regular difficulty.
