Byzantine Vs Sassanid Persian Elephants

So I played a fun game recently of Byzantine 579 - 599 vs Sassanid Persian 591 - 628. I went mostly as horse archers and lancers and my opponent outplayed me and I lost my small infantry force early. The weird part was that their elephants were just pretty much immune to my cavalry. Ranged fire rout...

Re: Turbo Movement Speed

Thank you for the heads up. Out of curiosity what would the expected issue be from this? Does the game check for matching squads files?

I'm happy as things are in any case as all my multiplayer happens in FOG2.

I'm glad the game is so moddable.

Re: Is it possible to increase the speed?

If you look in the /data/squads.csv and open it in Excel or similar. Then you can change the speed column values by doubling all the numerical values it contains. This will make the animations of the units twice as fast. Honestly I don't know if I could play it at the normal speed, it's more than tw...

Turbo Movement Speed

I just wanted to write down somewhere in case it helps someone that you can make all units move faster by finding squads.csv in the data directory and opening it in an Excel like program. Doubling or tripling all the speed values in the speed column causes the units to move at that speed. At first I...

Re: Can you make peace with somebody else's client state?

But how do I make peace with a country I'm already at peace with? I'm a peace with Rome and at war with their vassal.

Also in another situation I also had two vassals myself that were at war with each other and I couldn't stop them fighting.

Can you make peace with somebody else's client state?

In my game Macedonia declared war on me then immediately became a Roman client state. I don't seem to be able to make peace with them and I have good relations with Rome.

Re: Does Sparta only get provincial infantry?

Thanks for answering, I appreciate it.

From a game perspective it'd be fun to reform them even if it was very difficult but I do like their uniqueness as they are. The way they are currently does make sense.

Does Sparta only get provincial infantry?

Just playing through as Sparta and I only have as infantry: Spartan Hoplites and Spartan Phalanxs. I was wondering if Sparta eventually gets non-provincial units in these roles or if that is it? I guess it makes sense to have some limit on a nation like Sparta so I wouldn't criticise it but it does ...

Re: I want to like this game but something is wrong.

I have FOG 2 and have never actually exported a battle in twenty hours. While I love FOG 2, I find the included battle system to be pretty good and haven't felt the need to export. I like having the option but if I ever use it then it will be more to play out an impressive battle for novelty more th...

Re: Palace Guards are too powerful

I made a large stack with twelve ranged. I was able to get a couple of stalemates before losing which is new. It seems like the minor hits I got they would be healed up before the next turn. They still seem invincible.

I took a screenshot below.

Re: Palace Guards are too powerful

When I get back to my computer I'll see about getting screenshots. They are in a forest and the terrain bonus gives them quite an edge. Thinking about it a good strategy would be in my own capital region to build the palace guard structure and dismantle the walls if possible. They are better without...

Re: Palace Guards are too powerful

Is there somewhere I should upload the save to? As I just double checked and it is happening.

I wonder if it is because the enemy region doesn't have a wall that the garrison is on field? It is weird.

Re: Palace Guards are too powerful

I'm not trying to storm a castle this is in the field. I can't enter the region at all due to the palace guards. In open battle they are completely untouchable, could this be a bug then?

I love the game but I think this could be improved.

Re: Palace Guards are too powerful

I have a game where I am Averni and have at this point pretty much secured victory. But there is a hold out Venetii region that I have tried multiple times to take and have failed with every army composition available to me due to limited frontage to enter the region. As at this point I have almost ...

I have situations in my current game where I believe a mountainous region is completely unassailable due palace guards. I cannot even damage them with any composition I try. Has anyone else experienced this?

Regions that cannot be taken with the Celtic army list

I love the game so far and have gotten quite far in a game as the Averni. In the current game I have really no challengers and pretty certain to victory at this point I would think. One thing that is odd to me though is that I have an enemy reduced to a single mountainous region and it appears that ...

Pyrrhus Scenario

I'm not seeing how this scenario is winnable when playing as Rome? The enemy army seems to be overwhelmingly strong and I can't see how it would be possible to oppose them? I generally lose in three turns. Any ideas on how to stop the march on Rome.

Re: OOB vs Panzer Corps

Panzer Corps is far better IMO.

Artillery is worthless in this game and that is game breaking to me. Especially since it leads to the game being more boring than other comparable games because one of the main tactical decisions (how to use artillery) is entirely missing.
