Re: Update Problem

That would only lead to people installing the patch in the wrong place. Very few games are happy to have you just move them around after installation. If you need to move the game, just uninstall and reinstall and everything should be set up correctly. Cheers Pip Really? I suspect, that like myself...

Re: Update Problem

I sorted it out myself. It is very inconvenient not to be able to choose where the update is to be installed. Moving folders is often done in order to organize hard drive space. If anyone is interested, this is how I did it. I simply let the update install where it wanted too. It created the folder ...

Update Problem

I had to move some of my games in order to make some room for other software. FOG2 was one that I moved. Now when I try try to install the update, it only recognizes the original location, and there is no option I can see to direct the update to the new location. I have tried the automactic updater ...

Re: Warband vs Mediocre Legionaire

Warbands, like other units, are quite useful if they are used properly; mgardner and others explain the ins and outs of this very well. All of the game units have their place, according to their ability in reference to initial formation, line formation, and terrain. During my first experience with F...

" Stinking henbane modifier required? "

You can't medicate pixelated Vikings................and stinking henbane is hard to come by these days.

However............you could always drop a little LSD before you play the Vikings.

Update???

I have multiplayer games in progress so I am playing a couple of turns most days with no problems. Today, February 20th, I opened the game and received a notice that a new update was available. I clicked on the link that would supposedly take me to the update and nothing happened. I tried automatic ...

Re: What's the skinny on the new dlc?

I have been playing wargames for a long, long time and there has been no game before this that has captured my imagination and interest as completely as FOG. The game is so well crafted and considered. All of the components come together very well. I have never thought of a game before as being "cha...

Re: Version 1.5.21 Update

I wonder what the problem may be that the update process is so convoluted. I opened FOG2 and navigated to where I wished to be and a pop up opened informing me that an update was available. So I clicked on the button to advance to the update. That put me back to the game menu without a clue as to wh...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

As the various points in the posts above have been raised I do wonder what is the definition of Heavy Weapon and, given that we are discussing the late Dark Age, Feudal and beyond, whether it should now be divided into 2 classes; perhaps one as it stands an another more suited to increasing predomi...

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...

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.
