The Oronzo PZ2 (R2) Efile, Made by Oronzo . First released in late April or early May 1999. This was a mod of the SSI classic PZ2. Initially a modded version of Raymond C. Schroder's Ultimate PG2 Efile with a few changes, mainly in the Italian section.
Oronzo later went into a whole other ballgame, with the advent of his R2 file. R2 (Range 2), gives the vast majority of units with a previous attack range of 1, including infantry and aircraft, an attack range of 2.He cited the presence of long-range infantry weapons such as mortars in infantry battalions as a justification, but his main reason for doing so was to change the way the game is played.
This plays somewhat differently, for better and for worse.But it creates a whole new immersive playing experience.
Oronzo did his own research, mainly in underrepresented countries (France, Belgium, Greece, China, Italy,Hungary etc). . Minor nations were treated with a lot of passion and were tweaked to correct bias. New Game engine,graphics and sounds were implemented over time.
Oronzo has always been one of the first (if not the very first) to actually implement new ideas from people. It doesn’t mean that things don’t work in his file, because they do. It means that whether the changes were worth it was often left up to the user to decide.
