So this is the Editor that was advertised?

In more than 30 years of playing wargames, including 95% of Matrix releases, I cannot remember coming across a clumsier, more poorly documented editor. For a Matrix release that says the game includes an "editor," the current state of it is unacceptable, imo. I know a couple of hardy souls on Steam ...

"Wack a mole" behavior

First, great game now that I've been able to not lose for more than 30 years. Not sure if this has been covered: Playing Epirus (on Balanced difficulty), took Dardarni's capitol and 70 armies went on the run in the remaining four underdeveloped provinces they had left. Was allied with Carthage and R...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Nation Modifiers – Which faction has the best set?

The "bigger is better" model doesn't work here. As a beginner, I find it slightly frustrating keeping decadence down. "Growing" your empire or conquering a province can be bad for you, unlike most every other game. I tried to build a lot of culture buildings with larger nations, but hasn't helped so...

Re: A question about trading

I hate to ask smart people a dumb question, but here goes:

If I need marble to build something, and that marble is not available within three regions' distance, am I out of luck - or do I just pay top dollar for marble from another empire producing it?

Armies lose great strength on the move

I am playing a multiplayer hotseat (four countries I control) with FoW off. A couple of times I (believe) I have seen armies as large as 77 that I move thru my territory (say Macedonia) via land to attack, and when my turn comes up again, they are like strength 16. No big deal, just wanted to check ...

Re: 'Easy' Level - REALLY?!?

I found it educational to play three or four countries like Macedonia, Sparta, Epirus, Lysimakos and Aetolia at the same time multiplayer-hotseat with easy legacy option. Maybe if I pay close attention, I can figure out some trends beyond the bad-luck legacy token factor which has Epirus doing poorl...

There's an option before game start to cut the chances by 50%. I assume you did not check that box.

Re: Hot Seat Games

Not sure, but the hotseat trick makes the game for me - at least initially. I can play a group of barbarians to learn the game, and the challenge isn't lessened one bit. Whereas playing one Barbarian tribe would be suicide. You can do a lot of mixing and matching with this set-up. Thanks!

Re: Can't change the army's number(men) and add more deploy points in the custom battle and (custom)campaign mode

You can change the number of men by editing the Squads.csv in the Field of GloryII/Data folder. Of course make a backup, and also the dev does not recommend changing the original files. There is another way but I don't know it off-hand.

Easiest way to change deploy points is to use CheatEngine.

Re: OMG

Let's just say you did well at 40% off. I bought AFGAN and NAM at full price, but there is no longer a need to do this. Just wait. Same with $10 DLC. Devs need to make a living, but I have already made my contributions. But glad you are getting into the game. Honestly, I used Cheat Engine to explore...

Re: Royal Marines features

Why are we getting no feedback on this and other questions from Dev? Usually he is quite talkative. No written user reviews on Steam for DLC. You don't release a product and then disappear, so sort of odd and keeping me away from DLC for now. I think there was a sale of base game, which was a no-bra...

Re: Editing Scenarios

Great to see you in the game, Eddie. I seem to remember you've done some great stuff with other titles. I've almost certainly modded almost every strategy/wargame since the late '80s, but only light stuff - no graphics. From SSI's Kampfgruppe to now, I am an addict. The editing suite in this game re...

Re: Can I buy on matrix and register on steam?

For me, I've already supported Matrix by buying almost all its games, almost all of them at full price. The advantage of a Steam purchase is you can get a refund with less than two hours play time or several days, which to me is a significant bonus - just in case. I think I will like this game eithe...

Probably a "no go," but I don't use MP. Even if both players used the same modded file, it could be trouble. I'm too SP-centric ;)
