FIELD OF GLORY v1.0.2 NOW AVAILABLE
Hello Everyone
Once again thank you for all your feedback, suggestions and issue reports and the 2nd update for Field of Glory II is now available
This addresses a number of requests made by many of you and fixes several bugs that have been reported.
The full change list is below some of the updates you might be most interested in are -
- You can now review the battlefield at the end of a battle
- Units that have evaded off map count as half their routed value added to their side’s rout %
- Close Order Warbands no longer get +1 Cohesion Test modifier for being Heavy Foot
- Bows can now shoot over other units if on higher ground

v1.0.2 is compatible with save games from v1.0.0
If you are playing a multiplayer game then both you and your opponent will need to update your versions.
This is a comprehensive update, you do not need to have updated to v1.0..1 first.

Options Note – after applying this update it is possible that if you have changed your mouse options from the default (e.g. to “Left”) that they might be switched back to “Left-Right”. If this happens simply go back to Options and change the mouse back to how you prefer it (you should only have to do this once after updating). We are looking into why this happens and are sorry for any inconvenience caused


V1.0.2 is available from the Members & Public areas (and of course you can obtain it by 'checking for update' when starting the game)

Members Area:

And from the Public area :

V 1.0.2 Update List
- You can now review the battlefield at the end of a battle, by clicking the “Review Battlefield” button in the victory/defeat screen.

- Added End Stalled Game button to MP lobby. This can be used to claim a game as abandoned if your opponent has not moved for 7 days or more in a non-tournament game.

- Added Download Community Scenarios button to Main Menu, with pulsing glow and text notification when new scenarios have been added since you last played the game.

- Close Order Warbands no longer get +1 Cohesion Test modifier for being Heavy Foot. We have chosen this instead of changing the size of the units, to maintain the character of the units, but better reflect their historical performance. Further tweaks are in contemplation if needed.

- Units that have evaded off map count as half their routed value added to their side’s rout % unless they return. Units that pursue routers off map don’t. (Note that pursuers chasing evaders do not follow them off map, unless they catch them and rout them before they leave the map).

- Stopped Side B from randomly sending flank march in Multiplayer custom battle games.

- Parthian army list tweaked to allow more cataphracts and infantry.

- Added some compulsory medium foot javelinmen to Numidian lists.

- Widened Roman autodeployments – this was previously an issue mainly with Large and Very Large battles.

- Bows can now shoot over other units if on higher ground.

- Camelry no longer shoot invisible arrows.

- Indian forest tribesmen now have their own distinctive textures.

- Fixed issue of MP games displaying script mismatch warnings when the other player has played his MP turn after playing user content scenarios with modded scripts.

- Fixed bug that stopped modded units with crossbow from shooting.

- Impassable river tiles now show as “Impassable to land troops” when moused over. (Previously only showed as impassable if a unit was selected).

- Added Global Mod functionality. When global mods exist, a button appears in the bottom left corner of the main menu screen – this brings up a list box from which the mod to use can be selected. Only one global mod can be in use at a time. See http://archonwiki.slitherine.com/index.php/Modding. Currently this only allows modded unit textures and squads file, and does not allow modded or new unit models or scripts to be included, so it is of very limited use. We hope to extend its functionality in due course. In the meantime the pre-existing modding system using custom folders will be more useful in most cases as it does allow everything to be modded for that custom module.

- Manual Clarification: Setting Rain or Snow for a scenario in the Editor gives a -50 POA modifier to all shooting except by javelins.

- Manual clarification: A unit disordered or severely disordered by terrain loses that disorder as soon as it completely leaves the adverse terrain square. (i.e. the unit is now in an open terrain square.)

Note that the Evaded off the Map thing will not register for games that were started with v1.1.1, but otherwise they should function as normal.

Very nice list of changes! Thank you very much. Are you folks still working on the allocation of Generals issue? I just hope it hasn't been dropped.

Thanks!

I run the Steam version of the game do I still need to download and apply the zip file or will it update automatically via Steam?

Cheers Rex

Great job! But I have a question. Played my first game after this patch, as a custom battle.Me as Dacians, AI as Roxolani. Now I'm not 100% sure I did not hit anything other than the 'open battle' button, but about midway through the game, my Roxolani opponent got 2 flanking reinforcements! One to his rear, and one to my left rear. Is this even possible? I'm getting my *ss owned in this one now, struggling to survive...
Just curious.
Cheers
Alex

Not the case...as long as you click the "default" box when setting up the MP match you can still pick troops.

Depends on whether the game was started before or after the patch.

If either army is "Pot Luck" then neither side will get a force selection phase.

I've noticed a number of small improvements. Also, good to see the Parthian and early Numidian armies given a boost.

a) Because in the original game design we intended "Pot Luck" to be "Pot Luck" for force selection as well as army list choice.
b) Because if one side is "Pot Luck" and the other isn't in an MP game, it would not be fair if one side could pick his units and the other couldn't.

Allowing "Pot Luck" army list selections to have force selection is on the wishlist, but we we have not got to it yet.

Yes, that would be clearer.
