Perhaps a 1/2 speed setting or mod would be calming amidst the chaos?
The lowest game speed is still kRaZyIe to work with.
+1
half and quarter speed. Or a slider that goes all the way to Stop.

Re: ICBM on Windows 7

A lot of us out here still on Win 7. I have not tried to run it yet on my Win 7 machine, which is my main PC. My Win 10 laptop runs it OK. This thread has me concerned.

Non-Steam Purchase

Will the game be available direct from Matrix? I do NOT want to buy it on Steam.

Two 1.06g.1 Updates??

Why are there TWO 1.06g.1 Updates? One is dated Oct 19, 2018 and the other is dated Jul 26, 2016. Which is the real, latest update?

They are both the same size, 727MB.

Re: MOM Patched vs Fan Patch

Thanks! I am still playing the game installed from my original disk, patched to v1.31. I guess I can delete that, install the Steam version and have my choice of 1.31, 1.52 or Caster. Having my original paper manuals is nice, too!

MOM Patched vs Fan Patch

There is not much info on the different versions of MOM being offered. 1. The base MOM Slitherine is selling - does this is includes the new patch mentioned in the official game info? What is included in that patch? 2. Fan Patch - this is offered as an option in the game set-up. What is in it and ho...

Re: Field of Glory II 1.5.18 changelog

Why are there TWO update downloads labelled 1.5.18? Why are they both dated May 30, 2019? The same problem exists in several other games, like TOAW4. These problems all appeared after the new website roll out. I have no idea what file to use.

Re: Where's the rest of the map?

Zakblood's reply in the second post totally confused me and seems to contradict Pavelk's later reply. Is northwest Europe (parts of France, England, northern Germany and Ireland) part of the base game's play area? Or does is have to be added as a mod?

New Polaris Sector Patch

According to a recent dev post on steam there is a patch coming. I am shocked that there has been no news here, on the official forums. I am relieved that work still goes on for this stellar game, which I think is the best 4X game on the market. https://steamcommunity.com/app/418250/discussions/0/17...

How about some news, Dev?

This great game has always suffered from lack of news from the devs. So, how about it, what's going on? There is a lot of room in the game for improvements - game size, UI, AI, more races, ships, galaxy size, techs, etc.

Re: BSG Deadlock - Dev Diary #7 'The Endurance Update'

The May 29 update is listed as v1.035. My install file from purchasing the game on May 30 is listed as 1.09. This implies that the setup files are a significantly later version than the May 29 patch. This seems unlikely. Are you guys being consistent with your patch and game versions numbers? Do I n...

Re: Commands While Paused?

I, like so many others, play only solitaire vs the AI. I have no interest in any game that does not allow me to pause processing, review the situation an issue commands at my leisure. I made the mistake of buying the original AoE and regretfully deleted it from my HD after discovering this fatal fla...

Commands While Paused?

Can commands be issued while the game is paused and reviewed? I find no mention of this in the game description or in any reviews. This is THE make or break issue for any "RTS" type game for me.
