Re: FoG II on Wine for Mac OS X?

All, I am running a Windows 7 Virtual PC on VMware Fusion on my MacBook Pro. (13 in, late 2011 model) I am having difficulties with my setup -- so if you're doing good with Parallels or Wine I don't recommend changing to VMware Fusion. I've got a pretty stout machine with 8 Gig Ram and 2.8 gig cores...

Re: Slope Colors

Patrick,

Thanks for the reply. I'll put together a PM later today when I get the time.

It's just the slopes that look odd -- but they are pretty garish. You might want to put on eclipse sun glasses before looking at it.

Re: Slope Colors

Richard,

I, too, am on a PC emulator for Mac. (VM Ware Fusion). This is the only Slitherine/Matrix game I've had any issues with.

Is there a game-specific file we can edit to experiement with color options?

Slope Colors

Is it just my computer or are slopes colored blue? I was just playing my first game and thought all these streams were oddly shaped and tried to avoid them. As I was maneuvering around them, I happened to put my cursor over one and realized it was a slope. Thanks to my maneuvers, I had just given th...

Re: Play on XP

I'm happy on W7 and all my Slitherine games run just fine on it.

I have an unusual setup, too. A MacBook Pro running VM Ware to support a Windows virtual machine. Works great, mostly.

Flanking Forces

Both Pike & Shot and SJ have flanking forces. I'm not that keen on how they were implemented as arbitrary implementation by the game system. I think flanking forces would be great in FoG II -- but only if a player elects to use a flanking force. Ideally, the play would choose to do a flank march, de...

Army Pairings

Will open-ended army pairings be allowed in FoG II? (As in table-top FoG and FoG digital.) I think this is desirable and makes tournament organization easier. One of the challenges to organizing Pike and Shot tournaments was that it limits free pairings of armies. That forced "two-game matches" for ...

Re: I love P&S engine

I too love the P&S engine. I had my doubts about squares instead of hexes -- but the squares have a better "table top" feel. I have often wished the P&S engine had been done for Field of Glory. Many complain about the pursuit rules and the loss of control in the game. I think it is an accurate featu...

Re: Caracole II -- Phase 2

Shawkhan2, I've had offline conversations with the person who is planning to run Caracole III. He will be changing some things that may address this better than I have in the Caracoles I ran. To be honest, I never expected to have so many people drop out of play or dawdle -- but that seems to be wha...

Re: Caracole II -- Phase 2

Vadim,

Happy to play another game and seek revenge. But it will unlikely be done in time to score as a Caracole II game.

Just saying

Re: Caracole II -- Phase 2

TGM,

I'm going to hold to the cutoff date.

Partly because I have some personal and family activities coming up that I need to focus on.

Also to clear the decks for a Caracole III.
