Re: Rise of AI Global Mod v3.1/v3.0

I just noticed the update. I am actually playing HOI4 at the moment, but THANKS for the update!

FOG2 is a game I will be playing for years. Given my age and learning curves, I don't buy new titles (just update with DLC). I will be buried with my copy of FOG2.

Thank you Jack and Richard!

Re: Beginner's Guide Video Series

SuitedQueens, I was just a poster. It was actual Mike and Chris who broke down the mechanics of the game with such excellent presentations. @Richard, if you are reading, I have not been following the new game, but you should definitely get a cross link from your new forum to this thread of POA and Z...

Re: Change User Content Directory

I personally follow the Microsoft standard for doing this: Junctions (they are directories which redirect; so I have junctions for game data). This is how Microsoft has maintained compatibility with XP, VISTA, WIN8 ... all these years. Junctions only work on the same physical drive. If you want to r...

Re: TT Mod Version 1.5.32 available!

Yes, Paul,

You could create a public shareable link with just access privileges. I am not sure others would need a Gmail logon to access it. Another possibility is Dropbox.

How many downloads do you get? I would consider being a mirror.

Re: TT Mod Version 1.5.32 available!

Thank you very much! Also, sorry for making you download the MP version... http://www.kwlsystems.com/images/gameq/atherys.zip 5 Gb; I am posting here if anyone else cares to download.

I will send you an HTTP link for a browser, but might want to FTP (as that should be restartable versus a browser download).

Re: TT Mod Version 1.5.32 available!

Or maybe someone can share their mod zip to me, please. I have retried the download 10+ times, but I always got disconnected before my download completes. I have 1.5.32b, I think Campaigns, and Custom, there may be another file needed for MP (I don't MP). Okay, I am grabbing the 3rd file for MP. I ...

Re: Field of Glory Empires will give I:R run for money!

The steam rolling is deceptive, since the system does not evolve towards an equilibrium. However, it is possible to remain glorious most the entire game by hand managing the empire in the late game and shuffling priorities. I did that for 500 years, but it got increasingly harder to fight the fricti...

Re: Field of Glory Empires will give I:R run for money!

I own Empires and other PDS games, but not I:R. (I am going to leave out comments on PDS business practices as I will never get to my point if I do.) I have watched paid and unpaid reviews v2.0. I:R lacks focus, a soul, (for Pocus) a raison d'etre, ... it just looks bland. It is made up of watered d...

Last night, I looked at paid and unpaid reviews for Imperator: Rome; and Empires still compares favorably!

Re: Sad that nothing more will go into FOGE or FOG2

Honestly, I think FOGE is a GEM, and a very different ancient experience at a very fair price. There are some UI areas which could use some work like naval embarkation/debarkation. But you can live with it. My only issue was that the there are 2 fatal technical bugs (I mean game ending; not balance...

Re: Sad that nothing more will go into FOGE or FOG2

I quite regularly test betas through Steam so I'd be interested in doing this. I've actually been holding off buying the dlc waiting to seeing what on-going support the game was getting. Honestly, I think FOGE is a GEM, and a very different ancient experience at a very fair price. There are some UI...

Re: Sad that nothing more will go into FOGE or FOG2

Or the FOGE patch (hot fix really) for trade and end game memory management issues which is about 4 months over due. I had once said I would buy an AGEOD game sight unseen. But I must revise that statement. Any game that carries the Slitherine label will only be purchased when I know that all critic...

Re: Rise of AI Global Mod v3.1/v3.0

Jack,

I haven't tried it yet. As I still have 2 games left in a campaign I want to complete on the defaults.

I will put some feedback here when I get to it.

Again. Thanks immensely. I like Idea of a challenge without getting the feel that I am looking at the Roman forces at Cannae!!!!! :)

Re: Field of Glory 1.5.34 now available

Richard,

I thought you were going to remove Baggage Train fights from the campaign? (I am in one.)

The prompt for "NOISE FROM THE FLANK" has popped up twice before purchasing. What I mean is that I close it, and it opens again.

Re: TT Mod Version 1.5.32 available!

Thanks, Richard.

You know originally I said I wasn't going to pick up the next title. But then I bought CK3, which resulted in signing up for four grad classes from low to high middle ages. So, your new game is getting more interesting with each lecture.
