Re: This is why it is hard to play even the best RTW2 mods!!!

I look at it this way. TW means a stable world. We are the midst of global pandemic which may rival 1918. Great powers are dividing up the world. We are one press away from "The Last Big One". But the McD's hamburger has not changed since childhood. Coke has not changed since childhood. And so too, ...

Re: This is why it is hard to play even the best RTW2 mods!!!

I don't play MP. TW despite the fine work of modders can only go so far, because of the combat engine coding. This is not a criticism of CA or TW players, since it is aimed at a certain market, and after 20 years ... their business model has proven very successful. I am thankful there is a FOG2 with...

This is why it is hard to play even the best RTW2 mods!!!

I was going to play some RTW2/DEI (Divide et Impera); arguably one of the best TW mods ever done ... won lots of awards. Look at this unit standing on a 45 degree slope. The maps are beautiful rendered, but it is all for affect. These Romans must have their space boots on!!! Time for some FOG2 ... I...

Re: Decline of the AIs - @RBS @RoguedJack

Jack, Thank you very much for the AI mod. One of the other thing I noticed when using it was that shooters/bow (with ammunition) always shot from the earliest turn they could shoot instead of waiting until they were in close range. Of course, waiting for the optimal situation of a stationary target ...

Possible Bug: 1.5.32 (Steam) - All DLC --- NO Mods ???

Is this a bug???

(1) Spearmen charge light horse.

(2) Light horse evades.

(3) Ensuing spearmen charge into light foot (already fragmented).

Doesn't fragmented automatically break when charged by same or higher class unit???

Thanks.

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

Improved graphics and UI??? Any chance that FOG2 Classic will get said improvements? I own a number of games from Battle Front. They held the same titles and architecture/UI more or less for years, but have been selling engine upgrades from v2 -> v3 -> v4. Also, Paradox is continuously adding conten...

Re: Decline of the AIs - @RBS @RoguedJack

Thank you! Also, you brought this up somewhere ... I am playing 15 games. Winning and low KIA/MIA for my side is resulting in me fielding a Roman SAS Unit. I did boost my difficulty from +1 to +2, but I am still winning even when I don't sit on the back of the map. I picked up too many fine tips fro...

Re: Decline of the AIs - @RBS @RoguedJack

Jack, The same set up game as above with your AI (v2.4) swapped in before running Turn #2. Your main line also fails to reach my mainline by Turn #24. I will actually win as I will break the skirmish melee in far upper left corner. Now, your AI did move your main line out of the gate immediately on ...

Decline of the AIs - @RBS @RoguedJack

Richard, Version 1.5.32 (Steam + ALL DLCs; no mods) This was a campaign game (open battle). Your AI was so slow getting out of the gate with its main line that it never reached my main line. I won the encounter on the clock and the skirmish fight. I have all the saves if you care to review. Turn #24...

Is there a table?

Is there a table converting adjectives into POAs or percentages or ranking them?

Like which is better: Enthusiastic or Superior?

Thanks.

Are open battles the only type worth playing custom SP?

I just played this one, and it was really dull.

Which of these scenario types

Can be won without meeting 40% or 60% condition at 24 turns by just having the least routed? Thanks.

Re: I have a problem with the panic ripple

To get back to my OP point. I am not disagreeing with panic rippling,but instead the command incentive it creates. As a commander, my goal becomes to focus on the weakest units instead the strongest units as they will crack sooner. My personal experience in fights and war gaming is to prioritize the...

Re: Bug: 1.5.32 (Steam) - All DLC --- NO Mods #2

No, maybe I have this wrong.

So, the red green should display >25%, but as I understood it should display <=25%. And that seems to be what I was seeing in my battles.

Maybe the problem is me and my memory.
