Re: What do you hope to see added before Fog II ends?

No the addition was after release and had been out for quite some time, if I remember correctly. And I agree about the comparison between original Combat Mission and FOG2. For me, probably 2 of the best games in the last couple decades. Unfortunately CM lost me with their advanced 3d supercool CM2 ...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

3D is not bad 'per se'. What is bad is that 2D had more and easier seen informations. With 3D, devs have to let area so we see their beautifull figures, area which is lost for information. Too, as 3D is too "well done", it's hidding in terrain and we have to compensate by removing the well done cam...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

Played many hundreds of hours on PC1, loved the look of everything, loved the mods, loved how fast and quick it played. PC2 is a pretty damn good game in its own right. I don't get all this talk about how folks feel the 3D was a mistake and how they wish it stayed 2D, while making it sound like the ...

Re: Drop 3 cohesion levels

I have encountered double from normal melee (twice in a row in fact) and I assumed that is because the morale check resulted in a "snake eyes" (2) roll. If I recall, and seeing I got that achievement on steam :(, that the "lowest" roll will "reward" you with a double cohesion drop, regardless of rea...

Re: Returning to Proper Start Screen

This is the default Custom Battles module, not using any downloaded one.

Just a small annoyance to have to maneuver screens after each battle. I can live with it though.

Returning to Proper Start Screen

Loving the game. 50+ battles and I still have surprises. Tonight I had two armies mostly medium infantry, a lot of them on both sides, no heavy at all. Close battle, and I was annoyed, feeling the AI had a morale assist somehow since every time one of my unites routed, everyone friendly unit failed ...

Re: Zombies are coming to town, in this Field of Glory 2 Mod

Okay, so this is getting a bit much. I know the USA is so Zombie interested, but for me, I don't know why. I have fiends that are so Zombie everything, it just befuddles me. I think any mod for FOG II is great, but Zombies is a bit much, for me anyway. I applaud the modder, excellent work, but of no...

"Bahubali" Movies

With an intro to FOG:E I decided to play the Indian "Maurya" empire, since it is rated by the game as one of the easiest factions and it starts with two provinces. I noted on Netflex a movie that was a box office hit in India called Bahubali 2, a sequel to an earlier Bahubali movie. As I was playing...

Re: Keyboard Shortcuts?

You and me both! I went online looking for hotkeys, reading manual, nothing. Then I spent a lot of time before "1st turn" just getting acquainted with all the panels of info and options with what they did, so I stumbled onto the hotkey list! Amazing game that possessed me to "familiarize" myself wit...

While running the game, go into options and you will find the hotkeys listed and can be remapped from there.

The second link for campaigns appears to be no longer valid, site complaining about "something appears to be missing". The first link for custom battles worked just fine for download.

Re: FOG II Tastes Better the Second Time

Did a "recommend" Steam review. Can't say enough good things about FOG II now. Two weeks ago I had only 2 hours on Steam for FOG II after two years ownership. Now it is already 61 hours and I will not be surprised I'm playing this game for another ten years. Reading, WW2 gaming+CMO, VR Racing, now A...

FOG II Tastes Better the Second Time

I bought Field of Glory II two years ago, got part way through first tutorial, and decided I had too many other games to play. Lost interest mainly because this game engine was the same as Battle Academy and Pike&Shot, two other games I purchased in the past which I did not much enjoy. I don't know,...

Oh, DUH! Okay, I get it now. That is good to know. The DLC purchase just unlocks access to the DLC armies in FOG II itself.

Thanks.

Re: FOG Empires + FOG II Question

Paul59 , I think you missed my point or miss-read. I know you don't need DLC for FOGE, which I stated. I have all the FOG II DLC and I know how to use them for FOGII. I just wanted to know if FOG II would use the army lists of DLC I have for an exported battle from FOGE, even though FOGE says no DL...

FOG Empires + FOG II Question

I really have enjoyed FOG II immensely and mostly interested in Tactical vs Strategic games, so I would have been very happy with only FOG II. But with release of FOG Empires, who can resist? So after just purchasing that game, I'm in the middle of reading the manual and reading about the game onlin...

Re: Field of Glory Unity - How to convert custom scenarios

Thanks everyone for the notes here, I was able to convert old scenarios to FOG Unity because of it, though awful painful it was. Progress can be seen by having a window open to _OUT and you can see the PCK files being created. However, over 240+ failed to convert, though 398 did convert. Yea, I real...

I know it is about 2020 and FOG is getting long in the tooth, especially now that FOG II is out and is a wonderful product itself, but I wanted to give my thanks for the FOG Unity version. I still play FOG, even with FOG II installed. A lot of scenarios to choose from. I was very surprised that on m...
