There is a beta patch, being played by beta testers! :D
No doubt !

But I was talking about a public beta patch, in the old and honoured Ageod tradition... :wink:

When ? :D

And why not a beta patch before official release ?

I did eventually get it back as a gift and they have given me several other regions since then
Hi

I have never seen that happen 😳

Is there a mechanism to give back regions to allies ???

Some Diplomacy thoughts and suggestions

First of all, congratulations to Pocus for a great game. After a few rough starts as Syracuse (maybe one of the toughest nations to play, sandwiched between Carthage and Rome) and Epirus, I am having a blast playing a long campaign (reaching turn 200) as Rhodus in normal difficulty. A great game mom...

Re: Game is unplayable as it stands

Hi Roger Parallels is very different from bootcamp. Main differences are - at most only half your RAM is allocated to Parallels - Parallels does not use your GPU, but uses the RAM to emulate a graphic card I also have Parallels. But you should really try WINE. With WINE all your RAM, GPU, etc are us...

Re: Game is unplayable as it stands

Sorry to hear about your issues, Roger

I have not tried Parallels but can attest that using Crossover 18.5 (or WINE, for example the free PortingKit) the game runs just as fine as in my BootCamp partition

Using Mojave

Plays great on Mac !

Thank you for using the Archon engine. Both FOG II and FOG E run superbly with WINE (or Crossover), on my Mac, using Mojave. No wine tricks needed, install and play, and perfect integration between the two games, if installed in the same bottle. I am an advocate at Crossover and I will for sure advo...

A small update:

The mouse glitch disappears if the "fullscreen" option is DE-selected in-game

Many thanks Pavel

My “mild” OCD pushes me to try to fix this on WINE. 😂

As to Windows, I hate it and dislike having to reboot...

Re: is there a way to play the game with WINE on MacOS

Hi Pavel. I have no doubt that the issue is a wrong implementation by WINE of whatever service or API AAR needs to play the sound files. I just cannot figure what or why. There is no way to "turn on" media features in WINE or Crossover as it is possible in Windows. The reasoning being that WINE inte...

Re: is there a way to play the game with WINE on MacOS

Hi Pavel Just an update. Still no sound. Contacted Crossover support. Things I tried: - different WINE engines - installing Direct Music - installing windows media sound engine 9 and 10 - changing WINE sound engine to PulseAudio, ALSA and OSS No sound Strange. I have other games, including Matrix ga...

Re: is there a way to play the game with WINE on MacOS

Ok, I will try to see what is known about this in WINE...



(PS: To be fair, AAR is not the only game with sound issues. WITE also had no sound, until WINE engine version 4.6 was released)

About the sound issue, I am not sure, but WINE is apparently already using the appropriate native wmp codec (l3codeca.acm) after applying the wmp winetrick...


As to the blue square, yes, it is similar to your screenshot, although a lot more bright.

Re: is there a way to play the game with WINE on MacOS

Hi again Installing wmp via wine tricks did not solve the no sound issue, alas...(a pity, because the sounds and music of the game are really good... :( ) The mouse issue is minor. (BTW, is there an option to use the hardware mouse icon in the config files ? Ageod games used to have this option) Ano...

It works. Reading the links you provided, and some others, plus my experience with DC: Barbarossa, I tried to install GDI+ via Winetricks, and now the game loads ! I played some of the first tutorial, and the only issues are: - No sound - The default mouse cursor is superimposed on the stylised mous...

Re: is there a way to play the game with WINE on MacOS

Thank you again I installed the 2 fonts (a bit tricky. In other games like Strategic Command it is sufficient to drop the ttf files in the Windows/Fonts of WINE c:/, but in this case I had to also drop them in the fonts directory of the X11 folder) The game still crashes. Attached the logs. As far a...

Re: is there a way to play the game with WINE on MacOS

Thanks Pavel for answering. I understand that you cannot support other platforms besides Windows. Nevertheless, as I have managed to play almost all my Slitherine/Matrix games on my Mac using WINE (Field of Glory II, Pike and Shot, Mare Nostrum, WITE and WITW, WIF, TOAW IV, DC:B, AJE, CWII, WW1Gold,...
