  • What should I download in what order for PEG 2.0?

    One People's General question I get a lot is "What should I download and in what order?" So here is an attempt at a brief guide. The ideal setup (People's General 2.0 / PEG 2.0) is as follows.

    1. People's General game, if you don't already have it. You can get it from the Underdogs and other places.
    2. (Optional, but highly recommended) Jeff Varnes's 2.0 No Alliances Game Patch from below.
    3. (Required for most new campaigns and scenarios) The latest 5 Star Equipment File (currently v.2.9) from below.
    4. You'll also need the Modgen.dat from below. That has the new icons.

    That's it! Everything is optional. You can add them once you get the hang of things. You can add things such as:

    1. SSI Campaign Patch v.1.1
    2. More campaigns
    3. More maps
    4. Scenario Editors, and much more...

    Mark Kirby (PEG WW2), Robert Mary (PEG WW2) and Robert Devore (Red Danger) have all done substantial modifications to the game as well. I would recommend you set up People's General separately for each of their systems. Red Danger, PEG WW2 or PEG 2.0, then maybe do it on separate installs of the game.

    If you want to develop campaigns, equipment files, icons, maps or whatever for People's General, then see PEOPLE'S GENERAL DEVELOPER UTILITIES

    PEOPLE'S GENERAL GAME
    People's General Game - 60 mb at the Underdogs. You'll need the game, if you don't already have it, before any of what is below is of any use to you. Once you get to the above link, scroll down to where it reads "Where to get it"... There are several choices there.
    5 Star Equipment File v.2.9 - 60 kb; updated 05/01/03. By Narayan Sengupta, Mark Kiby, SSI - 5 Star Equipment File v.2.9 is a wonderful enhancement to the stock SSI People's General game. Make sure you also grab the Modgen.zip icon upgrade (see below a way down) or the equipment file won't display units properly. This equipment file has about 680 new units (1000 units total), innumerable tweaks, lots of air units, new tanks, new countries, aircraft carriers, submarines and other naval units and utilizes about 140 new People's General icons by Michel Linlaud and others. It is not fully compatible with scenarios using Vietnam, Mongolia, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia and Kazakstan as primary countries. [IDEA: To play all of the stock scenarios and campaigns, just keep your existing equipment file for that as a backup.] But it does add a few units for Israel, India, Italy, Iraq, Iran and Sweden and others. Some of the new units include:
    • Churchill 2 tank: UK and Islamic Coalition. Available 6/2017. Range 3. CD/CA: 15. RD: 24. HA 24. Can attack helos and aircraft. Air liftable. It's not just America that has bad boys on the battlefield. And watch out for the similar German Panther 2.
    • Mirage 6000: France and Taiwan. Available 5/2015. Range 7. Move 115. Helo Atk: 20. AA: 23. Profile: 0. View: 6. Perhaps the best bang-for the buck combat aircraft, even if it is trumped by the F-22 and F-35 and a few others.
    • Special Forces: USA and many others. Profile: 0. Move 15. CD/CA: 14. River assault, air movement and quick entrench. Drops far behind enemy lines to capture and hold weakly guarded VHs.
    • CGN Kirov: Russia and Ukraine. CD/CA: 22. Range 5. Move 6. GD: 24. AD: 22. RD: 21. HA: 21. Ammo: 8. AA: 13. The definitive ship killer. Provides air defense and fleet defense along with potent surface attack capability. The most powerful surface vessel in combat. Outclassed only by various aircraft carriers, and uh, the Iowa class.
    • Monitor LR II: China. Range 14. SA: 24. Profile 3. This is perhaps the ultimate MLRS system in the game, well rounded in every aspect except in defensive capabilities, but then again, it shoots from so far back, who cares?
    This requires downloading the free Modgen.zip file (below).
    This People's General 2.0 Expansion Pack download is the end result of countless (literally) hours spent slaving away to create all of the campaigns listed in the section below. People have said this is easily worth $80, but I have kept the price low to allow more people to be able to afford and enjoy it. This campaign pack also improves several of the campaigns which came with the stock People's General released by SSI. These campaigns also incorporate many more units and icons than the stock game. Finally, the 9 stock campaigns are all improved as well. It also includes the fabulous PEG v.2.9 equipment file which I have spent hundreds of hours improving. Please see the extended description below for more details. NOTE: The money from your purchase goes to keeping this site up and making the other downloads available to you for free. Also note that this is FREE to any active members of JP's Panzers Forum or Redball's Forum. Just shoot me an e-mail once you are registered there. "I have been playing the People's General campaign pack and have been enjoying it thoroughly." - Terry Masterson. "This mod has an amazing level of research and detail, numerous and varied new units, well written and designed scenarios and engrossing and addictive campaigns (can't stop playing Russia Resurgent). Between the re-vamped old campaigns and the new ones, the replay value of this expansion pack is enormous," writes Greg Veler.

    Israel/Iran Campaign Michael Nowak 01/07/10 This "what if?" war in the year 2015 is between Israel and Iran-Iraq and assumes that Saddam is alive and that he was never attacked by USA. Michael's first campaign. Please give him feedback. Try it today! Note: If you want the entire campaign plus the game, you can get it directly from Michael's site. It is 51 mb: http://www.musikkurse-nowak.de/Peg2.0IsraelIrancampaign.zip.
    Modgen.zip 5.2 MB Narayan Sengupta/Michael Linlaud, etc. 05/01/03 Required. This is the Modgen containing all of the icons required for People's General equipment file upgrades by Narayan Sengupta. You must download it to get the 2.7 and newer versions of the equipment file to work. However, you should only have to download it once. The People's General Modgen.dat file download is free and fast. No registration required.
    Jeff Varnes People's General 2.0 Game Patch allows you to play each country by itself! Recommended for all but the Vietnam campaign. This does not overwrite your existing Peoples.exe, so you can switch back and forth whenever you wish, even during a campaign or scenario. Do me a favor and download this patch and then start the game. You won't have to restart. Nor will it overwrite your existing game in any way, so if you don't like it, you can simply save (or not) and go back to the regular Peoples.exe. With this patch, you will only be able to buy equipment from the nation that is the primary nation in each scenario (sometimes USA, sometimes China, sometimes France, sometimes Britain, sometimes Germany, etc.), though you can upgrade all of your units to other units within that nation's roster.
    2.0 Game Patch 1 MB Jeff Varnes 10/04/02 Optional, but highly recommended.

    Return to Stalingrad is an update of existing scenario from Paolo Galibati. Uses v. 2.7 or better of the 5 Star Equipment File. "Since I like so much the new Equipment file, and also I like my scenario "Return to Stalingrad", I decided to update the Scenario to the possibility of the new Equipment file! Now the Scenario is fully compatible with the new e-file, and also benefits of a better balancing (needed since units stats changed a lot from e-file 1.9, used for my previous version!) and some minor tweaks!" 01/01/2011: After years of war, Western Forces finally have stopped Chinese Advance. Now, after 69 years, German and Italian Troops return to Stalingrad, this time to help their Russian Ally to repulse Chinese Army from Stalingrad. Russian Forces will directly assault the city from East, while German and Italian Troops from South will have to first annhilate Mongol stronghold on the Don-Volga Canal, an then reunite to Russians to launch the final attack to West Stalingrad.
