[Mac] Creates directory in my home dir? Seriously?

On the Mac, the Steam version of Order of Battle: Pacific stores its save games, scenario files, and other metadata by creating its own directory directly in ~. This is kind of like walking into someone's house and putting your mud-stained boots up on their kitchen table. It's poor architecture, and...

Re: Strange but true - we are under attack!

My knee jerk reaction, based on absolutely no actual information at all, is "I bet this is somehow related to that super-weird meltdown at wargamer.com." http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/878 ... g-farewell

Re: A message to slow players . . .

I think it's generally a problem that it is not clear what the expected etiquette is. A reasonable feature would be for games to allow the challenger to set a "chess-clock" style timeout wherever they want. So when a game starts, you have an expectation about whether you'll be playing (a minimum of....

Re: The New Field of Glory

My high level comment is "Design for the touch platform, by which realistically I mean 'iPad', from the outset."

Because, if you do it right, eventually that's where the majority of your sales will come from.

Several days of turns lost?

In several of my online games it looks like the turns have 'rolled back' to several turns ago. Anyone else seeing this?

Noticeably missing from this list (and I think important): user-interface improvements, which help bring more new users into the game.

Actually, I dual-boot AND have a virtual machine. I was in the Panzer Corps beta. However, I much prefer running apps natively - this is why I play more Field of Glory, for example, than any of my apps that require rebooting. All of that being said, telling a company what improvements will make it m...

Field of Glory Mac Reinstall complaint

I really, really, really, really, really want to be able to just download a binary from Field of Glory from your website, without having to sacrifice a chicken. I have my serial numbers, I'm willing to log in, but as near as I can tell, because of the way you chose to tie the distribution and paymen...

First, some stream-of-consciousness text that I wrote while playing the game, and then some more considered thoughts. The "Too Long; Didn't Read" summary is: you've got a really strong base to work from here, but your UI needs serious help. first impressions: -nice splash screen. -scenario screen. C...

I sort of hate the password-protected games as both a player of them and as a player not-of-them. The right solution is that I should be able to issue a challenge to a specific player (say "Bob"), Bob should see that challenge in his game list, and no one else should see it at all.

Mac version planned?

Hi, two obvious questions:

(1) Any plans for a Mac release?
(2) This game could totally be played on an iPad. Any thoughts about that?

BUG: Odds for charge changes incorrectly

The odds calculations for some changes incorrectly depending on where you point the mouse, reporting two different sets of odds even for the exact same path. Here is a visual example. First, I point the mouse at the elevated tile next to the enemy. Note that the attacker's odds are 56% and there are...
