Re: Error trying to update Field of Glory II

installing the game as admin and running the game as admin sets up the correct file permissions to run and update, not doing it doesn't set the firewall exceptions, and is the main reasons the game won't and can't update as it doesn't have the right permissions to run, install or update I run the g...

Optional Pursuit and shift sideways.

I often think it would be reasonable for Troops who are above average and over to have the choice to pursue or not. It would reflect their better training and discipline.

It would also be useful to be able to move sections sideways when shifting a line.

What do other players think?

Re: Ultrawide Curved Screen

I am thinking of buying an ultrawide 21:9 monitor. I was wondering how the game would scale on it. Is FOG 2 compatible for ultra widescreen? It looks great in 4k! Have you also considered purchasing an LED (for long bulb life) projector instead? https://projectorcentral.com https://www.tftcentral.c...

Re: Who would lead a non General unit?

Hi Mord, I presume you are the same Mord as I see in the Combat Mission forums as you live in the same bunker. Here is a link to a general listing of Military ranks starting with ancient ones. I was just browsing this very same thing before I checked to see if the forums here were back up. https://e...

A bit more information. I have installed Wolves at the Gate and the 1.5.12 update on a laptop with win10 and a desktop with win7. Neither installation has shown the Wolves at the Gate in the DLC list while in the game. The following is the same for both computers. - When I start the game from the D...

Re: New Website Issues

This site is painfully slow. As a comparison the Matrix Site is instantaneous. I am comparing both, side by side, on the same computer and the difference in loading times is very noticeable.

Hot Seat, Choose Units for both sides.

I am wondering if there are plans to include a "true" Hot Seat Mode, and an option to choose units for both sides when making a custom battle.

These too options would provide a quick and easy way for exploring the game mechanics and qualities of different units when in Single Player.

Re: My big issues with this game

The balance between gameplay and realism is a difficult one to achieve and satisfying everyone is not possible. Any wargame system is by nature impressionistic and to me FOG2 is a fine example of balance that results in a very realistic impression. We are also lucky to have a game designer who is pr...

Re: New TT Mod version 1.5.3 AVAILABLE HERE!

Great Mod and Thank You very much. Can you play Mutiplayer with someone who does not have the mod without disabling it? You mean playing a vanilla MP game? If so, that is no problem at all. The TT Mod sits in the players My Documents/My Games folder, not in the main install, so it does not overwrit...

Re: Server unable to validate your details error on Multiplayer

I have been experiencing all of the problems above over the past week. This is why I hate mandatory company organised PBEM. If the company servers go down you can't play. Why not give us a choice to use either standard PBEM by email or the company server. Flashpoint Campaigns gives you that option a...
