I figured a simple fix for the menu issue. Please read my additional comments attached to this comment. Thank you.

In Brief:
If you got Tank Commander (Jan 22) to work; Tanks Generals looks very similar except you're on the German side.

Unfortunately, like Tank Commander I'm unable to play this game as well; but for a different reason. The continue, restart and main menu buttons remain on screen when you start the game and does not disappear once the game has started. . I've tried every key binding to start the game without the menu, but cannot get rid of the menu list.

I was able to control the tank and fire, but couldn't get rid of the menu's, so for me it's unplayable :( Both available scenarios (Battle of Stalingrad and Kursk) look very similar with respect to the environments.

See the two images directly below that show what I'm seeing throughout the game play

Introduction:
Get ready to blow up the tanks, shoot for the enemy tanks and claim victory. Accept your commander missions, firing to kill enemy tanks . You need be a tanks hero to win WW2 battles.

Game Features:
- Good graphics
- easy to play
- Realistic sounds
- Historic battles

Reference accessed HERE April 4th 2022.
Conclusion:
Please see my additional comments below this review as I found a simple fix.

I love tank games, and from the short sequence I played it looks like a decent arcade tank battle game with both third and first person views (using the right mouse button to toggle between the two). Unfortunately for me its unplayable in its present state because of the menus being permanently visible in the middle of the screen, which obscures most of the firing reticule. .

Whiterabbit-uk,

I returned to the game later in the day to post a comment on the developers page. Then booted up the game again to take a few more screen captures partly to show that the two scenarios, i.e. Kursk and Stalingrad were basically the same maps. Stalingrad should be full of buildings, a rail yard, industrial area and a river, but instead all you see is rolling fields covered in trees, with what looks like a single building (looks like a hangar, but no runway) located somewhere on the map. in the middle of the map.

Anyway, on restarting the game, the same issue persisted i.e. the main items remained in the middle of the screen, making it really hard to use the aiming reticule.

I happened to discover a fix simply by chance. When you start the game you get the menu still present throughout the game until you've either destroyed all the Russian Tanks or you are destroyed. After a few moments I'd had enough of the game because the menu was too distracting; so I pressed the Esc key , which pauses the game, then, instead of returning to the main menu I pressed the continue button; hey presto, the menus disappear and you can play without the menu present. Problem solved. :)

Here are a few more images with the problem solved. :)

Whiterabbit-uk, SH would be proud of you for having applied pure deductive reasoning to solve the mystery.

Whiterabbit-uk,

Forgot to post this earlier today



Free or Discounted Games:
Please check Delenn's threads over in the giveaway forums HERE (non-Steam games) and HERE (Steam games) for the latest freebies. It's kept up to date frequently, (thanks for keeping this up to date Delenn, very much appreciated).

Steam Games:
For the latest Steam sales check THIS Steam database site out. You can list the games in 'price' & 'percentage off' order by clicking the headers. If you link SteamDB (the Steam database) with your Steam account, all games that you already have will be highlighted in green and those in blue are on your wish list. When there are Steam games being given away, you'll see the percentage off as 100%. It's worth checking this regularly to make sure you don't miss the best deals and freebies. There is an early access game presently free on Steam called KEO (usually £9.99).

Delenn usually posts links to all free games within several hours of them going live, so check her links in the first paragraph above.


If you have a Steam account and like to collect soon to be removed games, all five that were listed here; i.e. Far Sky, The free Ones, Sky Break, Knockout Checkers Chamber and Gods Remastered have now been removed from Steam. I don't know of any other outlet that sells any of these games, but, if you still wanted any of them, you may be able to find keys on the various sites that sell Steam key, but there's no guarantee that any will be available. If you've purchased any game that is later removed from the Steam store, you will still always be able to download and play it via your Steam library despite it no longer being available via Steam; that is unless its one of those Massive Multiplayer Online games where the only access is via the developers servers and no single player elements. Once the developers no longer support the game and close the servers down you can no longer access the game. (e.g. Defiance, Guardians of Ember, plus loads more).
Indie Gala:
Don't forget to check Indie Gala's freebie section HERE, then click on the Showcase header, selecting freebies from the drop down menu; the most recent additions include:
1) ... Vroom Racing (Drive a Formula 1 car upon 18 worldwide tracks : Reach 380 Km/h and beat the ghost !)

2) ... Project Restart (An anime visual novel, two versions English & Portuguese)

3) ... Pixel Puzzles 2: Anime ( Jigsaw Puzzle)

4) ... Cursed Sight (Anime visual novel with branching narratives)

5) ... Super Toy cars (ReRUN ... a tabletop arcade combat racing game)
Check the freebie section for the latest additions; if you've not visited for a while, also check the Showcase section for older freebies. All or most new freebies should be on the first page of the Showcase pages. We have been given over 340 games since I started to check the freebie section in 2018. But around 60% of those are no longer available free. The following recent freebies have now been removed from the free library: Spring Bonus, Little Kite, Last Dream, Unhack, Trainpunk Run, Pixel Puzzles 2: Paintings, Hamsterdam, Copperbell, Chainsaw Warrior, Leisure Suit Larry 2 Looking For Love (In Several Wrong Places), Leisure Suit Larry 1 - In the Land of the Lounge Lizards , Figment, Pixel Puzzles 2: Space, Revolution Ace, Six Sides of the World, Byte Family, Alone on Mars, Garfield Kart, Nostradamus the Last Prophecy, Snowball, Pixel Puzzles 2: Christmas , Die Young (Full version), Distortions, Dino Run DX, Cheap Golf, Kill Em All, Dead Hungry Diner, and Contract with the Devil.

Any game you claim while it's being offered is DRM free and will remain in your Indie Gala library permanently (unless Indie Gala goes bust) and can be downloaded at any time, under the showcase or freebie section; 115 games are still available. Not all games that go into the showcase remain free and are removed after a short period; e.g. the recent adventure puzzler Figment that costs almost £15 on Steam; so, you should grab them as quickly as you can. To find your games go to your account and from the drop down menu select 'My Library'. When the page opens find the 'Showcase' button in the banner along the top of the page and, from the drop down menu select 'Showcase'. There are only 8 games per page, so, if like me you have added hundreds to your account/library. Each page from your free list can take 30 or more seconds to move to the next page so it can take a good twenty minutes to get to the last page depending on how many of the free games you've claimed.
CD Keys:
Another decent site that you should check out regularly is CD Key HERE. They have some very good discounts on top notch AAA games for all the popular platforms (PC, PSN, Xbox, Nintendo), sometimes as much as 99% off. for example Madden NFL 22 is only £0.39 (usually £49.99), Grand Theft Auto V Premium Ed' 84% off (£7.99), Sims 4 85% off (£5.99), Star Wars The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition £1.79 , Dying Light Platinum Edition 92% off (£5.29 - includes 22 of the paid for 26 DLC's, with a further 11 free DLC's available.), Assetto Corsa 83% off (£3.99), Borderlands 2 GOTY Edition 91% off (£2.99), Civilization VI Platinum Edition 91% off (£8.99), Cities Skyline 90% off (£3.09), Hitman GOTY Ed' 92% off (£3.99), Sniper Elite 4 83% off (£6.99), Stellaris 99% off (£0.19), The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series 86% off (£5.49), Battlefield V 85% off (£7.39), Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 89% off (£0.79), Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II : The Sith Lords 89% off (£0.79), Planet Coaster 83% off (£4.99), Injustice 2 92% off (£3.99), Kerbal Space Program 85% off (£4.49) this is included in the Stand with Ukraine bundle, Fallout 3 GOTY Ed' 80% off (£2.99), Fallout 4 91% off (£3.49), Tekken 7 90% off (£3.99), Garfield Kart: Furious Racing 92% off (£1.09), Dawn of War Franchise Pack 97% off (£3.19 usually £99), Assassins Creed: Unity 91% off (£3.49), Naruto to Boruto Shinobi Striker 95% off (£1.99), Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown Deluxe Edition 86% off (£9.99), Outlast 2 90% off (£2.39), The Escapists 2 85% off (£2.99), Battlefield 1 Revolution 87% off (£7.99), Sniper 2: Ghost Warrior 2 89% off (£0.79), Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Season Pass Edition 96% off (£1.49), Elite Dangerous 84% off (£3.99), Killing Floor 2 89% off (£2.29), Lego: The Incredibles 93% off (£2.49), Lego: DC Super Villains 93% off (£2.49), Resident Evil Biohazard 90% off (£4.99), Resident Evil HD Remaster 87% off (£3.19), Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 91% off (£4.99), The Evil Within 92% (£2.49), Metro Exodus Gold Edition 83% off (£9.99), Shadow warrior 2 90% off (£3.59), Warhammer 40 000 Space Marine - Anniversary Ed' 93% off (£2.99) plus many more amazing deals.

Be sure to check that keys from CD Keys are redeemable in whichever country you live in (it details where it can be redeemed) as prices and the ability to redeem keys in particular countries may differ. I've quoted prices from the UK pages of CD keys. I recently got an Origin key for Star Wars: Squadrons for 99% off, costing me £0.34; it usually retails for £34.99, I also got 32% off a pre order copy of Dying Light 2 a couple of weeks before it was released in February, saving around £20 off the release price.
Epic Games:
The latest Epic Games have been given away previosuly i.e. called City of Brass - a first-person action adventure from senior BioShock developers. Armed with scimitar and a versatile whip, you’ll lash and slash, bait and trap your way to the heart of an opulent, Arabian Nights-themed metropolis – or face certain death as time runs out and even better Total War: WARHAMMER plus seven of the fourteen DLC addons are free as well. These were not included in the original giveaway. - The critically-acclaimed Total War: WARHAMMER combines a turn-based campaign of epic empire-building with colossal and explosive real-time battles, set within the incredible world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles; (it's not my favourite Total War title, but still excellent game play).

Next week from Thursday 7th April we will be getting Rogue Legacy - A genealogical rogue-"LITE" where anyone can be a hero. Each time you die, your unique child will succeed you. One child might be colour-blind, another might be a dwarf with vertigo. But that's OK, because no one is perfect, and you don't have to be to succeed. and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - a first-person mystery focused on exploration and discovery. As an occult-minded detective Paul Prospero, piece together the truth behind Ethan’s disappearance — and the fate of his family.
Indie Bundles:
The best Indie Bundles sites that have been operating from around 2010 are the Humble Bundle and Indie Gala sites (though the latter isn't as good as it used to be, with most of the bundles containing cheap stocking fillers and a lot of 'adult only 'hentai like ' games). The Humble site is, in my opinion, the best; though a more recent addition that is worth checking out called Fanatical games, that used to be called Bundle Stars, looks to be a serious contender for that title as they have some very good bundles. Presently Fanatical hosts fifteen bundles:

Mystery Bounty Bundle
Build your own Ultimate VR Bundle 2
Build your own Slayer Bundle 5
Build your own Anime Bundle 4
Killer Bundle 21 Redux
Build your own Backstage Bundle 2
Diamond Collection: Build your own Bundle
Build your own Nitro Bundle 2
Platinum Collection: Build your own Bundle March (ends soon)
Indie Must Play Bundle
Build your own Spring Bundle
Guardian Bundle 6
Build your own All Stars 4 Bundle
RPG Maker Bundle
Journey Bundle
Build your own Puzzle Bundle
Grey Alien Games Bundle
Kings & Queens Bundle


You can find the Fanatical bundles page HERE.
The latest Humble Choice bundle went live Tue 1st March; it includes seven Steam games and one Origin game. Desperados III, Mass Effect Legendary Edition (Origin), Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan, Red Solstice 2: Survivors, Nebuchadnezzar, Police Stories and Evan's Remains. Subscriptions to the Choice bundle have recently been changed, levelling the ground for all subscribers. The monthly cost is a meagre $12/£8.99 with other benefits such as access to a lot of indie titles for free while subscribed and a percentage off other purchases from the Humble store. This discount increases the longer you stay subscribed up to a year with 20% off all none bundle purchases. (1 month sub' gives 10% off, 3 months sub' gives 15% off and six months sub 'gives 17% off). The next Humble Choice bundle goes live Tuesday 5th April 22 next week.

The latest Humble Bundles include the following:

!) ... Europa Universalis IV: The Complete Collection Contains the base game plus 32 DLC's for £15.20 usually costs £390.89 (ends 13th April).

2) ... Killing Floor Collection - includes For at least £11.48 you get Killing Floor plus DLC; Mrs Foster Pack, The Chickenator Pack, Neon Character Pack, Neon Weapon Pack, Incursion (VR Only), Community Weapons Pack, Community Weapon Pack 2, Community Weapon Pack 3 - Us Vs Them Total Conflict Pack, Outbreak Character Pack. And Killing Floor 2, Killing Floor 2 Digital Deluxe Upgrade plus DLC's Armory Season Pass, Halloween 2020 Full Gear Bundle, Headshot FX Pack 1, Headshot FX Pack 2, Cardboard Knight Bundle, Mrs. Foster, Horzine Mark 7 Bundle, Christmas 2020 Full Gear Bundle. (ends Thursday 21st April 22).

Free Game Project:
I've restarted a project I originally started back in 2008 that used to be called Good Games to Grab, where I posted free games over in the forums on a daily basis; however, I won't be posting them daily this time, only as and when I have time and the inclination. You can find the new forum section entitled 'Free Game Project' HERE. So far, I've posted eight excellent PC games, plus one android game as well as suggested or linked to others similar to the ones posted. I'll be adding more as and when I have the time or the mood takes me over the coming months.

Amazon Prime Gaming:
If you have Amazon Prime you also get access to a new set of free games every month. The April freebies include the fantastic The Elder Scrolls Oblivion from GOG (You can find loads of mods, addons and other related files over on Nexus mods HERE. ModDB also have many files avaialble for the game HERE (files), HERE (add-ons) and HERE (mods).).

From Origin you get the 3D version of Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neigbourville (I'm really pleased to see this one; I was intending to buy it in the next Steam sale as it's been on my wish list since it's release) . Plus there are several other games from Plug in Digital and Lucas Arts free this month.

On top of those full game freebies there's also a shed load of add-ons and other DLC content for various Free to Play and commercial titles such as GTA V, Overwatch, League of Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, Two Point Hospital, The Crew 2, Fall Guys, Blade & Soul, FIFA 22, Madden NFL 22 (the full game was free on Origin last month via Amazon Gaming, now you get some extra stuff to add to the game). Also extra's for Battlefield 2042, Splitgate, Gildwars 2, Black Desert Mobile, Warframe, Doom Eternal and over 20 other titles.


May's games will be live on Monday 2nd May.
Other Free or Discounted Games:
Black And White Apocalypse that was given away mid January (HERE) by the developer Hammergames is always free via Itch.io and can also be downloaded as a colour version. You can find both versions via the following links Black & White version, and Coloured version. :) Hammergames also offer other games they have created free HERE. Some of them look like they are worth investigating. :)

Stay safe everyone.

perplexed,

Unfortunately, 32 bit is becoming less supported in the gaming industry as time moves on.
