Re: Fantasy General in a nutshell - should i play it ?

I would not compare FG II to Gladius. Main reason is there is no civ-like base building & expansion. Also no tech tree though there is a tree of some sort relating to unit advancements & improvements, to include finding equipment to improve a particular unit during the campaigns & skirmishes. There ...

Re: What’s your most favorite war game so far?

No huge favorites, though atm Shadow Empires is my top choice most of the time.
The FoG series, to include FoG Empires, Panzer Corps II, & Fantasy General are a close second...for now.

Re: ICBM on Windows 7

Hi Eddieballgame, Thanks for your help. I see launcher and launcher.exe where I have game downloaded- but where do I locate ICBM.exe? Still no help or message from Slitherine Support team. In the game's main directory you will see 2 'ICBM' icons; the first one is the 'exe' file. To check, right-cli...

Try bypassing the launcher; shortcut the 'exe' file (ICBM.exe) & run as administrator.

Re: UI Scaling

I use 'Auto-detect' which I believe to be 1920 x 1080 on one laptop & 1366 x 768 on the other.
I will add, I am using flat screens for my monitors & not the original 17 inchers that come with my pcs.

Faster Production Costs

For those that like to play on the slowest setting, but would like to increase the speed of Unit production to compensate, here is an experiment.

Main Dir/Units
Units Production Cost = /2 ( half the cost )

Simply back up & replace with the attached file. (capped for easy reference)

Re: UI Scaling

Per the 'dev'...you can change the Font Sizes in the LANG/Eng (for me) folder. Open the 'codepage.table' file using notepad or notepad++. this is what you will see; Locale "English" BasicFont "Roboto-Regular.ttf" ItalicFont "Roboto-Italic.ttf" AltFont "Roboto-Medium.ttf" FontSizes 6.00 7.00 8.00 9.0...

Re: ICBM on Windows 7

I doubt this will be of any help, but I will comment just in case.
The only issues I have had is when I fooled around with 'Full Screen' vs 'Window Mode', screen resolutions, & trying to mod the Map text file, for example.
Otherwise my 'Win 7' (very good one) has no other issues with this fine game.

Re: ICBM on Windows 7

I have 2 gaming laptops, 1 is win 7 & 1 is win 10.
Game runs very well on both.
Be careful, however when fooling around with screen resolutions & 'Full Screen' vs 'Window Mode'...can lock up, badly...requiring a restart & then an edit of the 'ICBM.CFG' file in the saves folder.

Major Heads Up per Full Screen & Windowed

When switching from 'full screen' to 'window mode' (twice), game would stop responding & I had to to a complete restart to beak out of it. Task Manager would not work. Solution, open the 'ICBM.CFG' file (Documents/My Games/ICBM) with notepad or notepad++ & change FullScreen false to FullScreen true....

Re: Scaling the Text

For those struggling to read the "fine print", try this. There is a fix for us 'old eyes guys'. This worked in FoG II also. In the main dir/System folder is the 'font text file'. Open it & adjust the 'height' numbers. For example, try setting the minimum height numbers to 14. Depending on your moni...
