Re: Multiplayer Question

Hi Alex, I think it was I who accepted your challenge. I'm new to multiplayer, and wasn;t sure what you intended since the password was posted in the challenge notes. You can flag the game as abandoned if you like, or I would be happy to forfeit on Turn 1, but I would also be happy to play it out if...

Re: Armored Horse Archers

The following passages are from the Loeb translation of Ammianus, on the battle of Maranga. I'm not qualified to assess the quality of the translation, but it bears directly on this discussion: "Moreover, all the companies were clad in iron, and all parts of their bodies were covered with thick plat...

Re: Fog II and Pike and Shot II?

For what it's worth, I strongly prefer the Pike and Shot graphic style. If a theoretical P&S2 ever comes to fruition, I would support keeping the contemporary-style formation graphics, with additional "animations" to indicate unit states. i.e., pikes lowered to indicate a unit engaged in combat, pik...

Re: The Kingdom of Kush as a future faction in FoG II

The Meroitic kingdom was at least as powerful as any of the contemporary northern European tribal confederations. I'm not sure if it counts as the "Rise of Rome" era, but in the early Imperial era (25 BC) a Roman force equivalent to two full legions was sent into the territory of Meroe to retaliate ...

Re: FoG II on Wine for Mac OS X?

Pixel, Can you confirm you can get multiplayer turns to load? I've had the same experience with P&S and SJ, where the game runs fine except for loading MP turns. If FOG2 gets around this issue, I just might pick up a copy.

Re: Naval Warfare: Lepanto 1571

Very, very cool, jomni. Looking through the notes, it seems like you've been through a number of iterations. Any chance of a v1.2 that differentiates the various galley types a little more? For instance the Maltese galleys would have likely had some of the heaviest boarding parties, while the Veneti...

Re: Highlighting tiles

Thanks Richard! I do have the modded textures in /DATA/UI/TEXTURES/BATTLE However, only a few seem to be displaying correctly. For instance, in deployment mode, the eligible deployment tiles are highlighted with the modded texture, and when I turn on the LOS/LOF function the modified versions displa...

Highlighting tiles

Does anyone know if it is possible to change the texture that is displayed when mousing over a tile (e.g., if I wanted to port the inkbrush square from SJ into P&S) in a modded campaign folder? I have altered the .dds files UI/Textures/Battle in a custom campaign folder, but when I load the campaign...

Re: WINE

I have been able to get both P&S and SJ running on a MacBook using WineSkin, though for whatever reason it cannot process multiplayer turns. So mp is off-limits, but everything else works perfectly.

Changes to Chinese lists in Mandate of Heaven?

Hello all, The review of Sengoku Jidai on the Great Ming Military blog generated an interesting discussion in the comments about potential (albeit fairly minor) inaccuracies in the portrayal of Chinese and other armies. Some of the more significant suggestions included a greater role for dismountabl...

Re: Verdict on the Series

I don't think there is a lack of research evident in the scenarios, maybe just the limitations of needing a manageable number of unit types, and so ignoring some finer distinctions. in my opinion it could be resolved by modding in "average" and "superior" morale variants of the Imperial Cuirassiers,...

Re: Terrain Colors - All or Just for Snow?

I'd just like to belatedly add in that I love the period art style used in SJ. And would also love to see a P&S "era" done in fully monochrome style, like a contemporary engraving.

Re: Further Reading Online Resources

I've read the Ming blog quite a bit as well; it seems the author believes that various forms of brigandine and other light armor were quite widespread in Ming armies, even among rank-and-file infantry. I was surprised by the decision in SJ to portray virtually all Ming infantry as unarmored. Also, i...

Re: MP with Wine?

Thanks for the suggestion. I switched to the 1.6.2 build, but it doesn't seem to have helped (then again I'm not running the Steam version). Are ther any .dlls or configurations that you needed to adjust?

MP with Wine?

Has anyone been able to get multiplayer running on a Mac with Wine? I am running Campaigns using Wineskin engine 1.7.44 and it is working beautifully, except that I can't seem to be able to download multiplayer turns. I am able to issue and accept challenges, but when I try to load my turn the statu...
