Re: 1.5.21 Bug Report: Load of save game

Richard, Before zipping and sending, I did some testing. Launch program. Reload Turn #23. (no music) Launch program. Reload 8/8 Campaign Screen. Reload Turn #23. (no music) What this means is that the problem is not really in the save game, but in some runtime variable which is being kept by the pro...

Richard,

Oh! Please don't make Mike Chung come and get me! I am sure that guy must work for a private debt collection agency.

Thanks.

Re: 1.5.21 Bug Report: Load of save game

I have a save of every turn when I play in case I want to do up an AAR later, I use the saves.

So, I loaded turn #23 to show you in another thread. By then, I had already seen the Campaign 8/8 screen from the game. As soon as it loaded, music started playing.

Clear?

My first 1.5.21 game --- observations!

(1) I had one cav unit chase a defeated cav unit in melee for 4-5 turns clear across the map. Usually, pursuit only lasts a turn. If this is not WAD; I have save games of this. (2) Usually, the skirmisher line will get in a few volleys and clear the area as the heavies arrive. For the most part, thi...

1.5.21 Bug Report: Load of save game

Richard,

I am sorry to tell you this, but loading a save game after the game has ended (when music was turned off) produces music. Yes, flags/logicals/booleans are b*tch to get all the conditions right! :)

Yes, I can see Mike telling a neural net, "Don't make me have to come and get you!", and Mike's surprise when it quips back in 300 BCE ancient Greek. :)

Re: Where do I go from here?

Thanks Richard. I have one more battle left, and I will bump it up a level next campaign. I am not one of those people who always must win, but being a noob and first campaign and wanted to have a chance.

Where do I go from here?

I am playing the Alex What if campaign (v1.5.18; no mods). My settings: 2019-10-29 15-57-39.jpg 2019-10-29 15-57-59.jpg 2019-10-29 15-58-48.jpg I am 75% through and winning easily. (most battles are being won 10-20%|40%) I want to try it with more challenge. What to do next? (a) Raise difficulty? (b...

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

A tougher AI that does not cheat is always welcome: * The AI is too easily distracted by skirmishers, and in general the AI can always be scattered allowing a local advantage when outnumbered. I realize this is a valid strategy by the player, but there should be some evaluation clause for the AI's g...

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

Personally, I never understand guys who lose their identities when they cease to work for a living. It depends on how much of their "identity" they had invested in their job. Richard, I am glad after listening to your podcast that you were not too fixated on your identity of being an MD. It would b...

Re: A question for those playing SP?

I often identify advantageous terrain where I want the fight to be decided. Usually, it is not in my set up area or close. So, it means a dash. Lets just say Macedonian phalanxes are not good dashers. So, I screen them with skirmishers allowing them to get to where they need to be. Cavalry is usuall...

Thanks, Richard. I will refer to the manual again. It has been a while. So many hobbies, so little time.

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

Richard, Pursuant to ... http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=477&t=94806 I would suggest another way of boosting SP difficulty (as an option). I would not blaspheme your system and suggest that unit stats be altered at higher levels. Instead, I would suggest that the AI gets more purchas...

A question for those playing SP?

In another thread, Mike makes a point about MP: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=477&t=94560 "Please don't make me come across the map and get you." He is basically saying "Come out and fight as opposed to forming the optimal defensive position which the map allows you." I don't play ...

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

:) To me it seems that at times, I can teleport through a wormhole of connecting tiles. And it gets even better, because after those skirmishers get out of my phalanxes', way there just happens to be medium foot unit that I stumble into at full charge. (It makes up for all those times "push back" pu...

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

I might be mistaken, but it has seemed to me that I can get heavier units more forward sometimes by chasing evading skirmishers than simply marching.

Of course, we have people here like Mike and Chris who would set up tests and statistics, but there may be an exploit in there somewhere.
