Re: Tides of Conquest campaign tool - new version out Feb 16 2020

The army lists can sometimes be a bit anachronistic. The one chosen depends on language, province, date, and whether or not its origin is tribal or not. I wasn't too rigid with the dates, as some lists need to cover states that didn't exist in history (ie, alt history Hellenistic kingdoms in Asia Mi...

Re: Early Middle Ages: winners post your results here . . .

Div B Nijis (Spanish) defeats Challenge1 (Arab, Umayyad) 41-10. There was just enough rough terrain, and in just the right places, for the Spanish infantry and skirmishers to hold off the crack Arab foot. The Spanish won the cavalry battle, although that was largely due to the luck of pursuit and ch...

Re: Tides of Conquest campaign tool - new version out Feb 16 2020

Blue game screen - got it. I'll make sure there are always return links.

I have the same issue with the white screen in fullscreen mode. I think one can ctrl-alt-del to close it though. I'll try to troubleshoot that through MonoGame.

Re: Early Middle Ages: winners post your results here . . .

Division B Nijis (Spanish) defeats markwatson360 (Rus with Pecheneg allies) 63-46. Both of us fielded a fair amount of heavy infantry but the lines didn't clash outright. Instead, both sides tried to outflank each other with the help of cavalry and skirmishers. It went back and forth a few times bef...

Re: Tides of Conquest campaign tool - new version out Feb 16 2020

Glad it works! By the blue screen of death, do you mean the "Your PC has encountered a problem and needs to stop"? If it's just blank, it may just be a screen that doesn't draw content. If that's the case, there should be a "Return" link in the upper middle. I'll check up on multitasking via taskbar...

Re: Tides of Conquest campaign tool - new version out Feb 16 2020

For now, there's not any way to start at Spain in 300 BC. I've limited the provinces in which realms can start, to avoid overlap for multiplayer. I can expand the free start options for singleplayer, though.

You can take the Cantabrians in 100 BC, however.

Re: The Crisis of 100 BC and the Lollian Revolt - an AAR using a Tides of Conquest campaign

Our army list has reverted back to Roman from Palmyrene, but we figure we can justify taking some Armenian allies, given our recent participation in the Armenian civil war. We're left with a pretty small force of high-quality infantry plunging into a double line of mostly irregular foot. We might ha...

Re: The Crisis of 100 BC and the Lollian Revolt - an AAR using a Tides of Conquest campaign

The Mermnads raided Ionia last turn. They may be building up to try to conquer it. We can only be safe if western Asia Minor is brought under the protection of the Ionian Republic.

Re: Tides of Conquest campaign tool - new version out Feb 16 2020

It should work for 1920 * 1080, as that's the resolution I use. I did encounter the same problem as you when I used lower settings though. I'll look into config options. In the meantime, here's a version set to 1920 x 1080, full screen. That might work instead. You might need to uninstall the previo...

Re: Tides of Conquest campaign tool - new version out Feb 16 2020

What resolution is your monitor set to? I suspect that it needs to be at least 1600 x 900. I can try to make a version that requires less resolution for the next update.

Re: Tides of Conquest campaign tool - new version out Feb 16 2020

Karvon - can you send me a screenshot where your mouse is over one province and it shows another? You can send to my DM, if you like. I don't know if this will help, but I'm running the game windowed (ie, not a full screen) at 1920 * 1080. I tried with other settings, though, and I didn't encounter ...

Re: The Crisis of 100 BC and the Lollian Revolt - an AAR using a Tides of Conquest campaign

Our allies' cataphracts meet the cataphracts of the Cappadocian king on the ridge to the right of our lines, the loyalists' hordes of medium infantry and archers trailing behind. Our cataphracts have a slight advantage thanks to height. They win the clash of the heavy lancers, then go careening down...

Re: Tides of Conquest campaign tool - recruiting for ongoing Year 500 campaign

Glad to hear it's working!

I was leaving the Battle Size up to the player. The only problem with giving the player more formal options is that it tends to clutter up the interface. But if you wanted to do Conquest: Large, other battles: Medium, that would be appropriate.
