Who here has played the Super Robot Wars games? I'm currently playing through the PS2 remakes of the OG games.

What are your favorite games in the series, and favorite mechs?
>tfw interested in the crossover aspect because i love /m/ stuff but can't get into the gameplay
I think the gameplay is one of the better parts. It's got more depth to it the later into the series you get, I'd say OGS on the PS2 is the perfect starting point. The earlier games are just a bit too simple.
What do you not like about it?
Not that guy, but the newer games may as well just be visual novels with how easy the gameplay segments are. The only real exception is the OG series like you posted, but anything mainline past Impact is a cakewalk unless you're doing a self-imposed challenge like no upgrades.
I spent a lot of time plays SRW3 when the fan translation came out so many years ago; I still think it's fun.

Cybuster and Alteisen are the best btw.

What strategy games hold a special place in your heart despite being flawed enough you refuse to recommend them to people?
For me, it's Mordheim. I fucking love it, but the AI warbands just scaling off you rather than being persistent is a real killer imo, even moreso than the shit performance, clunky interface, fucky AI and grind. Especially later in a warband's lifespan, when your boys have enough injuries that the AI tends to have multiple people a match standing around repeatedly failing stupidity checks because of randomly assigned brain damage.
By contrast, the best times I've had with it are when I'm in a 1v1 clash where we just do back-to-back-to-back missions until one of us can't afford their warband anymore. There's nothing sweeter than slowly forcing your mate to overstretch their economy so even if they're winning battles, they lose the war. Spiriting away their good weapons, investing practically no money in gear for your goons and just mobbing one of their dudes that he's invested in, match after match until they don't get back up again.
There's a sweet spot in the early mid-game where your lads have 1 or 2 tricks each but they're very bad at everything outside their main role, so you're constantly having to manouevre and reposition for best effect and I just find it so much fun to juggle.

Honourable mention to Battle Brothers and Darkest Dungeon, which I think prioritise the *experience* to the detriment of a fun game but that I still play the fuck out of.

Voice detection was terrible the moment it came to numbers. Game always choose 3 instead of 8 whenever I said it.
Online campaign was a mess too come to think of it. Consisted of people clobbering the shit out of each other at chokepoints.

Well for one, the whole "scouting" thing they mentioned is just the game sending small waves of units at your base, and if you don't kill them quick enough it 'found' you and starts sending bigger parties. Also the enemy base buildings don't do anything and the enemy doesn't have any sort of economy, it's just wave after wave on a timer
Koihime Musou. One of the best adventure stories with a very simple but engaging strategy game. Definitely better than Eiyuu Senki.
Yeah the game is broken as shit but it's really got heart.

Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, Or what's a heaven for? All is silver-grey, Placid and perfect with my art: the worse!

Endwar is a really rough diamond, and I remember the voice feature being pretty good for me. I think it could be refined for a game today, but Ubisoft would likely fuck it up.

What I didn't like, though, was Infantry was objectively the best unit, so long as they were in cover, and I remember times when even Riflemen in cover were giving my tanks trouble. It fucks up the rock-paper-scissors dynamic.

How to get into this game and not be a retard at it? I have almost no experience with strategy games. Gravely wounding at least 1 soldier every mission + no idea what to do with the metagame stuff

>Gravely wounding at least 1 soldier every mission
Well they're not dead so it's fine. Don't overextend rushing forwards, which is always a temptation especially if you're a ranger.
Don't be afraid to evac. This is more relevant to higher difficulties, but still.
Whatever they say, don’t mess with the turn timers. They just pissed off everyone on launch (incl me)

In Enemy Within people just moved to cover, overwatch, moved to cover, overwatch repeat until win. We optimized the fun out of the game- removing all the risk by sticking to one boring ass strategy that required no critical thinking.

So just take it in stride, Commander. You’ll do fine.

As for the metagame stuff like research? Uh... I didn’t really have any strategy myself so... do whatever I guess. Upgrading weapons is always nice
>We optimized the fun out of the game- removing all the risk by sticking to one boring ass strategy that required no critical thinking.
that's on you, and more importantly that's what the meld was instituted to address in what I would argue was a much better fashion than auto-fail timers that tick even before they know you're there

Yo this is what I wanted some days ago; just a list of some fun custom maps.

I'll try them in Eurobattle one of these days to see if we can get some games going. My computer's network adapter died and I have to tether, so it might take me a day or two. I'll report later.

How the fuck do you get good at this game? I've been trying to get good at this game for over a year and I still suck at it. I can't even finish a game on prince without either feeling lost or feeling like I'm not gonna win the game and giving up around turn 200. The closest I've gotten is when I was far ahead in tech but fell way behind after trying to war with a neighbor and not winning the war. Is it just trial and error or what? I've tried getting a shadow game going on civfantics but the forum moves way too slow and sometimes the advice isn't clear. And apparently the guides are outdated. What do? Just keep trying until I win a few games?

probably a segmentation fault
running out of ram generally won't cause the game to crash, unless you got no disk space as well
I have 200+ GB of disk space.
Vanilla V Deity is roughly comparable in difficulty to Vanilla IV's Monarch. 1UPT really does gimp the AI that bad. With an AI improvement mod installed (K-Mod, AdvCiv), IV is one of the most difficult SP strategy games out there on higher levels, and I'm not even joking.
probably has something to do with hard disk. you need more space
I enabled graphical paging and that fixed it.

Why couldn't GW simply say "these are the our new sculpts for the Space Marines miniatures"? You don't need a retarded lore reason for new sculpts. Makes me wonder what they will pull out their asses when Chaos gets their "Primaris".

It irks me more than primaris that Sisters were nothing but damsels in distress so far, I'm on a 3rd mission which focuses on saving them. And I see no reason to use their infantry, when you already have SM units beefed with upgrades.

Also I didn't expect it but melta+flamer combo on speeders is pretty damn good. I don't know why heavy flamer even has AP or optimal range 1 in stats, it destroys full genestealer squads at range 2 with 100% accuracy.
I'm hoping flame cannon on predator is actually a pattern weapon with wider range, otherwise it's would be really underwhelming.

It‘s funny how inept they are in the missions but still try to talk shit. I bet they had to be in the game because GW released a bunch of new SoB boxes.

Highfleet just came out and what a surprise it is to see a 50 page users manual. The whole manual presents itself as an in world training document, really reminiscent of late 90/s pc games like Crusader: No Remorse. Manuals are a dying breed when it comes to modern games and its a fucking tragedy.

You can make make money with Mint as long as there's bronze deposit on the map. Mint doesn't need smelter / bronze bars, the workers will mine raw bronze directly.
The building turning paper into money is Printing Press, you can have one in parallel with Mint (but you can have only one of each).
Anyway, money is rarely ever a problem, even on higher difficulty.
If I remember correctly from my childhood, the mint had a miner that collected the copper ore from the rocks, so I don't think you can import copper and use it to feed the mint.
>The building turning paper into money is Printing Press, you can have one in parallel with Mint (but you can have only one of each).

You sure? Didn't the money printer replace the mint in the iron age, like how lacquerware replaced bronzeware?
I'm quite sure you can have both, Mint doesn't care for bronze bars like bronzeware maker does it just needs accessible ore deposit. Though in campaign you often only have one or the other for "balance reasons" (or you have neither and have to depend on trade and taxation).
>literal mission 1 from tutorial
>barely win

jesus dude you need to be a troll.
when i first played this game I didn't even know english but the game is so dead easy that i manage finish the all tutorial missions in one afternoon.
