Re: Kill the King scenario?

I thought that might be it and wasn't too surprised when the bodyguard routing didn't do it, but after it dispersed... So that would mean that, at Cunaxa, Cyrus' household unit is utterly destroyed but the rebel army fights on? My gut feeling would be that dispersal = dead = loss. Or is there a way ...

Kill the King scenario?

For a Milvian Bridge Epic Battle I want the death of either Emperor (who are the two c-in-cs) to finish the game in favour of the survivor, even if the 40% hasn't been reached. I copied the Cunaxa 'Set Variable Scenario 6' into the Milvian Bridge BSF, and started an MP game. I can see that the victo...

Re: Auto-evasion

This probably sounds odd, and doesn't work for dedicated tournament players, but I suspect that "...gut feeling, past experience and guessing at the relative weight of factors involved..." perfectly sums up what most Ancient/Classical/Medieval generals actually felt on a battlefield. IMHO these sort...

Re: Unit fall backs?

So, for example, what would happen wargame-wise if I were to design a Milvian Bridge scenario, where Emperor Maxentius - for reasons best known to himself - defended Rome in front of the Tiber after carefully having destroyed the main bridge which was his only route to safety? Historically his infer...

Re: Fog II and Pike and Shot II?

While I can appreciate the animations in FoG II, I must confess that I prefer the overall look of P&S. Tabletop rules notwithstanding, a pike block of sixteen figures just isn't a phalanx for me. And I prefer shooting in both the active and passive players' turns. With a few extra skins, P&S could e...

Re: Pike & Shot makeover

With all due respect to the striking animations and textures in FoG II, I'd also like to see skins for elephants, chariots, ballistae and narrower Mobs (to use as light infantry) added to P&S, so that it could be expanded into the Classical/Ancient period. I still feel happier with a phalanx that lo...

Re: Map modding someone ?

You can download a free programme like paint.net, then use it to open the Tiles file. Then you can recolour, adjust saturation, etc to get the effect you want, and save the new Tiles file as, say, FoG/Multiplayer/ name of battle /Tiles/ name of battle _base and, when you open the Game Editor for tha...

Re: New Objects

If you don't feel up to wrestling with sf4 files (and I certainly don't) there is a lot you can still do with the Objects files from both this and P&S, by recolouring and erasing different areas of the pictures. Similarly, you can change the Tiles file to create, say, pits and caltrops, then stick t...

Re: CEAW 4.0

Thanks. Do try to persuade Marix/Slitherine to put an announcement on the splash screen for their other games. Unless players haunt these forums on a regular basis it's sometimes hard to keep up with developments on this (and other) very good mods.

Re: CEAW 4.0

Just be absolutely clear, is the link to update to 4.0 the final, official version that's just waiting for Slitherine to provide an installer, which isn't expected until the New Year, or is it still an advanced beta test? Cheers.

Sent revised texture to Richard, hopefully it can be added to correct the scenario. I don't have an iPad myself so hard to see issue.

Re: "The marble brigade"

Hi, never seen this before, no one else has mentioned it, and it isn't how it appears on my PC. None of which is any comfort to you, Speaking directly to Richard about this Explicit Alpha thing, hope to find a solution. Is this from the MP version, the Vitoria (French), Vitoria (Allies), or all thre...

Re: regarding Eylau1807 by edward 77

Hi, Ed's pretty well answered this clearly but from my point of view I think, Bussy you're confusing muskets with the integral guns attached to each brigade. As Ed says, normally in P&S scenarios the artllery is a shown as individual units which, when moving, have a limber unit attached. Because P&S...
