Re: Losing your General

King Pyrrhus fell to a roof-tile thrown by an angry housewife in a relatively minor skirmish. To avoid losing your generals so easily go to settings and turn off the Angry Housewife option.

Re: Mathematicians, playing Empires often makes me tired.

Frankly I set up provinces as quickly as possible and automate them. I ignore trade because I'm not an accountant (didn't have the charisma). I just balance money men and metal. It doesn't seem to make much difference to success or failure in growing a successful empire and I have a blast. Doubtless...

Re: Diplomacy feedback

I too find it impossible to negotiate peace with soundly defeated rivals, other than by returning all conquests. I get the impression that the more defeats an enemy suffers the worse its attitude to the victor gets. Even where the base chance of accepting peace is 100% any attempt to impose conditio...

Re: Diplomacy New key Features - Manual Addenda

Well, this exceeded my already high expectations of what the developers would come up with. Congratulations all round for the ambition and let's hope it works out in practice, especially in dealing with AI nations.

This is a massive step forward for an already intensely absorbing game.

Re: Any FoGE Development News?

I would like to see the option to transfer regions or provinces to another nation, perhaps as part of a wider deal.

It would also be interesting to have trade options beyond setting up buildings and hoping the right goods arrive

Re: Leaving MP game

On a similar issue, I have a game which started with 3 players. The other 2 stopped playing. I therefore also stopped. The game remains in my folder even though the date for completion of moves was 29th August.

Syracusan tourists

As Rome I allied with Syracuse. As a result lots of Syracusan forces started appearing in Italy, obviously enjoying the sights. When I terminated the alliance, the Syracusans stayed on, not doing very much. I had expected that once Rome and Syracuse reverted to neutrality, 'visiting forces' would be...

MP email turn notifications

Currently I get an email when an MP game starts but not for subsequent turns. My FoG 2 MP turn notifications work fine. Anyone else experience this?

Nineveh Glitch

Just set a mirror challenge of Battle of Nineveh accepted by pcmattie. After his first turn as Babylonians my turn as Assyrians would not start. The only on screen control was the one to run the replay again. No way to exit the game except via Task Manager. I have started the mirror match as the Bab...

Re: Diplomacy.

Frankly I try to be terribly nice to everybody when I meet them, but 200 years of peace later they still won't even agree city visibility. I seem to have to wait for them to make an offer, sometimes on the turn immediately following a similar offer to them that they have just refused.

Re: Field of Flory II Rise of Persia is out

I've had the chariots out for a test drive. After asking for Swifter than Eagles for so long I am delighted with this DLC. I understand that the period is not to everyone's taste but it happens to be my favourite so I'm very grateful. Just goes to show that with RBS it really is a case of 'Ask and y...
