Re: My problems with the new edition.

For me, the game has lost all it's charm. I'll be uninstalling it and playing the older versions. Thank you for the update, but no thanks. I think we all have to give the new version a chance. It has only just come out and the feedback has only just started. For those of us who have been playing th...

Re: My problems with the new edition.

This makes sense, and thank you for being the voice of reason. If Slitherine/Matrix would have said up front that this new version is in the early stages of development, than all would have been fine. But, they didn't. They marketed it as a completely remade version with a bunch of enhancements and...

Re: Sorry but the game is currently unplayable . . .

I haven't downloaded the new game as yet, and I am still undecided whether to do so. I would much prefer if Slitherine would continue to support the old game so I have a legitimate choice which one to play, thank you. Is it too late for this option? ... So my message is, please continue to support ...

Re: My problems with the new edition.

This is a dreadful product and not ready to have been released. 1)The animation is clunky, ugly and primitive. 2)It is very, very slow to download PBEM games; the PBEM game is listed on my screen, I press they play button, and nothing happens. 3)Why does the morale of units not appear with the unit...

Re: Sorry but the game is currently unplayable . . .

I think we have to go forward now with the game, Nick, and I would think that getting the default tempo of the game to resemble the original FOG is a relatively simple fix (not that I have the faintest clue about programming!). Sensible attitude Pete - but I would point out that I purchased all the...

Re: A new Field of Glory - and two new DLCs!

I haven't seen the new version as yet - is it out later today and how will it arrive? Via updates?

Also I have a large number of home-made scenarios - I guess they won't transfer to the new FoG?

Thanks

FoG v. 2.2.0

I cannot access multiplayer without updating to version 2.2.0 - however there is no obvious official link to the new update. If you hit the auto update it still shows 1.8.1 as the latest version.

Any ideas anyone? Thanks Alzado

I purchased the game today. After downloading and updating to v.103, my anti-virus program promptly intercepted a threat associate with the update and now the game won't start...

Please offer solution or refund!

Re: GAUGAMELA 331 BC

my views on battle dynamics are hardly idiosyncratic. a couple of people have questioned them before. see threads of Mantineia and Verneuil. let's just say i'm pretty comfortable with the standard of my research :wink: It's all just a bit of fun ultimately isn't it?

ALEXANDRIAN BATTLES: 3rd SERIES SAGALASSUS AND THE JAXARTES

Two minor battles from the Alexandrian wars. Sagalassus was a citadel fortress of one of fiercest Pisidian tribes. Rather than trying to endure a long siege, the Sagalassians came out to meet Alexander in hilly, broken open country. In this scenario they are reinforced by the remnants of Memnon's gr...

Re: GAUGAMELA 331 BC

Thanks for the explanation. It does give me a better idea of why you are trying to force players to confront specific issues within the battle - or your view of them! Whether those issues are truly historical I don't know, but it makes for an interesting alternative. Cheers :)

Re: GAUGAMELA 331 BC

Just curious where you got the idea for such a weird map with so much impassable terrain!? :shock: When I was researching the battle the map came up more or less the same from different sources... a huge plain, levelled in the middle for the chariots with a natural bowl of higher ground to the outsi...
