Re: Small suggestions thread

And a small cosmetic request, it would be nice to be able to freely change the main menu background image to the ones from the DLC. Can't be done, at least not in a cost effective way. The DLC images don't exist in any usable form and were only created for marketting use. Secondly, in order to scal...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

This is basically what they do in Civ. Every time you roll bad, the subsequent roll has less chance of being bad. You roll good, the next roll has less chance of being good. Sid Meier did an interesting talk about it many years ago and its basically his way of mitigating players entirely false perc...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

The last idea I have may not be possible at all and I am not even sure how to explain it in terms of computer programming. But imagine two players sitting at a table playing a game of TT FOG. Instead of rolling a die each time for combat or rallying etc, they would reach down into a bag that contai...

Re: Desktop PC Spec for FoG II Etc?

The graphics were developed with an old (going on for 10+ years) i7 950 quad core @ 3.07Ghz on Windows 10 with 24Gb RAM (32 but its Windows Home) and now an GTX 1060 3GB . It was started on a considerably less powerful GPU but I was having difficulty running Metro and IL-2 at max specs so upgraded. ...

Re: Field of Glory II Game Engine?

It's the Archon engine and has been used for a number of games.

The only one I can remember now is Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach, though Pike and Shot, Sengoku Jidai and Battle Academy were built on its predecessor.

Re: Ideas for Panzer Corps 2

Could we have a better look at the different types of infantry, please? The new infantry design does not seem to be that exciting, with their guns not aiming at the enemy! ;) We haven't shown the final infantry. The ones present in older screen shots are stand-in and not representative of the final...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

So I love the idea of random maps, they work really well with Fiels of Glory II. But I really wonder about the type of maps you have choosen. To classify maps I did expect something like mountains, hills, swamp, large river, bocage, forests, ... to describe the major terrain on the map. The descrip...

I agree with those suggestions, GiveWar. I also agree with having the automatic camera but one that zooms right over to the unit in combat.
Last time we tested that we had to issue sick bags.

Maybe it is an ordinary truck with a tarpaulin removed and only the frame is visible
Or some kind of workshop truck... :|
Looks to me like an SdKfz 7 with the tarpaulin removed as an additional visual cue to distinguish it from an SdKfz 9, 10 and 11.

Re: Roman triarii's texture error

I guess designer decided with black armor with black shield because of raw legion's white tunic with white shield. Kind of symmetric. :p erm no .. I explain most of it a few posts up from here .. but in many respects its was fairly arbitrary. Just needed to look different to the other red units and...

Re: Roman triarii's texture error

Also, the "mix of crazy patterns and colours" with some of the TTMod+ Roman legionary shields have absolutely nothing to do with me. They were added by the the author of that mod, and are totally absent from my original TT Mod. Yeah and I've absolutely nothing against modders doing whatever they li...

Re: Roman triarii's texture error

The only potential error with the Triarii is that they should have the same coloured shields as the rest of the Legion since this was used for identification. I'm not sure why you're complaining about the black costume while not complaining about the red, blue or yellow. Non of them are based in his...

Re: Will we could toggle the different expansion mosaic art works(DLCs) on the main menu in the future?

If you copy them from a website somewhere you're free to do what ever you want to the base games background images (though please make a backup first) .. but we never created unique images for the DLC because they can't be used in game in the way you suggest. Doesn't matter that you own the DLC, the...

Re: Will we could toggle the different expansion mosaic art works(DLCs) on the main menu in the future?

AFAIK the engine draws this image from one place and it cannot be changed with DLC without changing it for ever. The thing is that when you first load the game, you're not in any particular DLC. You're just in the FoG base game. DLC isn't loaded until you load a scenario/campaign or choose a particu...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #3

Nice to see the work done to P.corps 2. First impression i had is that 3 D units seems to hover over the map. Maybe put them bit more ground. Drag the tracks into the map or change the shadow that makes it look like the hover. looking 4wd to the release. We currently have a known issue with the dis...
