Battle of Edgehill 1642 - AAR (kind of)

First of all: I suck in doing AARs. Because of that I don't go deep into details and wargamer's metaphysics, I just want to give an overview of the events. I even cannot tell what I did on which turn - this is how I suck! So don't expect to much, it's all Panta rhei, just go with the flow! Or not. -...

Re: Enjoying it so far

I haven't yet worked out how to get rid of the constant description and commentary which I find very disruptive; Go to 'Options', then "Advanced Options". There you can turn off everything. "J" toggles the size of the mini map, you can turn it off also. Clicking the Info button removes the battle i...

Sure. Those screens below are with ZOOMLIMIT 550, ZOOMINLIMIT 200 as mentioned above. ZOOMLIMIT 800, ZOOMINLIMIT 100 like in my first post proved too extreme for me.

Re: Music

Thanks for the quick reply! I'm "glad" that this is a bug and I haven't screwed up something ... The pastoral ambient sounds I use are in fact a sound mod for Combat Mission: http://cmmods.greenasjade.net/mods/4898/details I might modify this a bit further.

Music

There are 4 music files in the game (Main Folder/Data/Music); I've got issues with two of them: MainMenu.mp3 and Battle.mp3. "MainMenu" is used ... in the Main Menu :), during loading and with the battle description. "Battle" ... well, during the scenario. So far, so good. Problem is that when I loa...

Yes, a lot of kids there that never played any turn-based games and see TW as the non plus ultra. :mrgreen:

Couldn't agree more. FoG was a big dissapointment for me, very annoying. Sweared to ignore Slitherine titles in the future (no joking!). Glad now that I didn't. :)

Re: Pike & Shot is now available!

Games are a bit cheaper on Steam. FAIK that's it. I quit for the same reasons. And I cannot stand such an open gateway on my machine.

Breaking news! Zarkarion in the Steam forum: (...) Currently we are working on a "Tercio to Salvo" expansion which will cover the gap between the end of the Italian Wars and the Swedish entry into the Thirty Years War. As such, it would include the French Wars of Religion, the Dutch War of Independe...

Re: Scenario Design Resources

Glad to be of help, Ian!

I see a lot of work ahead of us. :wink: The editor looks rather complex and I haven't got any clue concernig the AI scripts yet. Anyway, I'll post more links here when I find some that seem helpful.

Greetings,

Re: Pike & Shot is now available!

I don't think it's too hard. Won the tutorial scenarios without bigger problems. You have always to consider several unit-related peculiarities while planning and executing your turn. From other games we are used to move units fast over the map laying trust in their strengh or abilities. Here for ex...

Re: Commanding officer, and pikes in charge position

I think it would add a lot to the flavour and to the look compared to old illustations if there was a little group showing the commander (often a king after all) with his banners, plus entourage, hangers-on, messengers, heralds etc. Very nice idea! Apart from the eye candy it could add some more ga...

Re: pre-sale & release

"Démoralisation automatique" would be "Automatische Demoralisierung" in German, sounds a bit better IMHO. "Curiosities": A bit annoying are the wrong adjectives like "Katholisch Runde" ot "Transsilvanisch Runde". Correct is "Katholisch e Runde" and "Transsilvanisch e Runde" etc. Much better would be...

Looks like I've found a game to spend the whole coming winter with (and even longer). Everything in it is so ... terribly beautyful! Quite happy about all the content. Thanks to the whole team for all the hard work. Guys, this game has the potential to become a classic! (We have to speak about the G...

First Mod: Improved Zoom ;)

I really love the graphic style of this game; but in a resolution like 1680x1050 all units look like wearing sackcloth and ashes, they're simply too small (at least for an owl like me). So I was checking the data files ... and found something to fix that. Instruction: Go to the 'Data' folder (in the...
