Re: Turning off supply rules in OOB

I lose all my standalone scenarios at the easiest difficulty setting,.. Amazing! A trained chimp could beat the AI at the easy setting every time, so you must be doing something very very wrong! If you ever decide to come back to this thread tell us which scenario you'd like to win and we'll talk y...

Re: Next DLC?

@kondi, all: I checked out that Flight of the Intruder thing on youtube. What is that, early 80s? This reminds me that I am probably the youngest person around here...carry on, geezers, and dont drool on your keyboards when you doze off... :mrgreen: FOTI is a 1991 film based on the earlier book of ...

The next DLC is currently in the last stages of development prior to beta..
Well what is it or are we supposed to guess?
This must be the only thread on the internet where nobody's mentioned the title of what we're talking about..:)

Re: Come and talk with the devs on the Discord server of Fantasy General II

For all newer games there is only a single forum on one site or the other, the links on the other site simply shortcut to the actual forum. Some older games did have dual forums, which was definitely an issue. But now there is just a single forum per game. I'm still not sure I understand. Personall...

Re: Come and talk with the devs on the Discord server of Fantasy General II

.. just to digress slightly, can anybody tell me what the difference is between the Matrix forum and the Slitherine forum? Why are there two forums? Slitherine and Matrix, while still being the same company, are two different brands. It makes sense, if only just because the catalogue is rather big,...

Re: Turning off supply rules in OOB

Here are a couple of pics from one of the Japan vs China scens to illustrate supply in OOB. My Japs are advancing from right to left but the two jap units on the left have stuck their necks out a bit too far and become pocketed out of supply by the two Chinese AI units that moved along the blue arro...

Re: Come and talk with the devs on the Discord server of Fantasy General II

We have no intention whatsoever to neglect the Fantasy General II forum on Slitherine. We will post here and reply, just as we do on Discord. It's just two different media: one is a forum, the other is a chat, so they will be used in a different manner. Thanks, and just to digress slightly, can any...

Re: Turning off supply rules in OOB

I bought OOB a long time ago and understand why I never played it: I do not understand how supply is managed (despite the game manual). I lose all my standalone scenarios at the easiest difficulty setting... WHOA! I'm an ex-Pz Corps player and abandoned it because I didn't like the unrealistic supp...

Re: Come and talk with the devs on the Discord server of Fantasy General II

Anyway out of curiosity I've just spent 20 minutes trying to register at Discord but couldn't get in, I kept getting messages saying my email address and password weren't recognised, no matter how many times I kept resetting them.

Re: Come and talk with the devs on the Discord server of Fantasy General II

Yeah, from what I've seen so far, about 20 years ago we would've called this a "chat room". Twitter 2.0 :lol: Chat rooms are fine for lightweight chat, but not for serious gamers because if somebody asks a question in a chatroom and gets a reply, it scrolls off into cyberspace soon afterwards and a...

well we read both, discord is just quicker for short questions or comments
Thanks, but what exactly IS Discord, a voice-only chatroom or a proper forum with screenshots and stuff, or what?

Re: Come and talk with the devs on the Discord server of Fantasy General II

Why do we need Discord? Why don't we just use this beautiful Slitherine forum? Warning- I used to post Armed Assault tutorials and screenshots etc in the excellent Code4Gaming forum, but then the Admins opened a Discord forum and a lot of C4G members went to Discord, and the C4G forum is now almost ...

Re: Next DLC?

Yeah and another interesting scene from FOTI is when a humble farmer takes a pot at a low flying Intruder and kills the RIO, that happens in OOB too when heavy infantry can return fire on planes that are attacking them- https://oi53.photobucket.com/albums/g64/PoorOldSpike/sub4/sub4002/Flight-of-the-...

Re: Next DLC?

Personally I'd like to see some small "Unit pack" DLC's released covering other periods of history containing nothing but units, so that we can simply slot them into scenarios that we create in the editor. For example we could build a jungle map using the existing terrain type, then use the units fr...

Re: Self-propelled anti-tank units (SPAT)

..For the Germans SPATs (primarily StuGs of course) were more and more towards the end of the war a cheap substitute for real tanks.. Yes and if any innocent newcomers have surfed into this thread from off the street, let me clarify that the terms "Self-propelled anti-tank", "assault gun" and "tank...

You like defense missions along rivers, don't you ? :) This one looks tough, even though the Germans seem to have a decent amount of artillery behind the river. The Russians airplanes are sure to be a thorn in the German side... ...One of the things I would like to use random triggers for are naval...

Re: Revisiting Order of Battle

I'm often thinking about what could make interesting scenarios by mixing up the geography of the terrain and the various game mechanics. It'd be great if you could post other screenshots of maps you made like you did for your France 1940 scenario :D I'm still a relative newcomer to the mystical art...

Yes, and incidentally I'm not a big fan of SPAT's of any nation because their armour is usually thinner than tanks and they haven't got a turret, and some are open-topped, so give me a ...
