Description of The Perfect General

Read Full Description

The Perfect General 1 rocketed QQP to fame when it was released in 1990. The game offers a complete player history, an elaborate scoring system, and good AI.

The Perfect General 2 ups the ante with VGA graphics, modem play, excellent phased action, and better AI. Arguably the best game QQP ever produced, PG2 sadly didn't garner much acclaim, perhaps due to the release of SSI's ground-breaking Panzer General in the same year (1994). Two abstract wargames at its best!

Note: In 2002, Killer Bee Software announced the acquisition of the copyrights and source code to both Empire Deluxe and The Perfect General from Mark Baldwin and Bob Rakosky, formerly of White Wolf Productions.

You can not play this game without the manual, not supplied here, as it is copy protected and you need the manual for the key word.

PG & PG II player. Great to see it come back.

I'm pretty sure the file R-TPG.COM in the archive exists to crack the game, that's what it says when I run it after all. The reason I'm not entirely sure is because, when I run the game, the screen doesn't repaint properly. I'm not sure whether I'm getting to the stage where the word from the manual is elicited.

@mymoon what are the words?

Good game..

I had a copy of the game and it was a *copy*, not an original. It was asking a word from the manual and we were trying to guess it to start the game. :) then we realized that we could check the files with norton commander and found all the words that the game was asking. At least out guesses were now among some 20ish(?) words.
