Re: Anyone running Field of Glory II using Wine?

Wine is definitely tripping over something very badly. Have you installed anything extra the FOG2 Wine prefix? Have you tried to delete the prefix and let Proton recreate it? Consider reporting the problem on the Proton bug tracker. It may not be a bug but perhaps one of the Proton developers can ma...

Re: Anyone running Field of Glory II using Wine?

Enable Proton logging and look in $HOME/steam-660160.log for any clues.

Code: Select all

PROTON_LOG=1 %command%

Re: Anyone running Field of Glory II using Wine?

For FOG2 you don't need any additional libraries on Steam Play/Proton. I play the game on AMD open source graphics drivers with no launch options and performance is very good. The game uses d3d9 and should render through the wined3d/opengl backend, which can be cpu bound. What resolution are you usi...

Re: Anyone running Field of Glory II using Wine?

Multiplayer works on Steam Play, so I see no reason Wine would behave differently. Which version of Wine are you using?

I don't know which port FOG2 uses, but perhaps your firewall is blocking the connection. Which distribution?

Re: How can I arrange a multiplayer battle?

For both players to pick armies, you have to arrange the match before hand via PM. If you pick both armies, it is up to the other players to accept or pass your challenge. Mirrored battles will balance difficult army match ups, or maps that favour side over the other.

Re: Bug: Base hovering above unit when placed on an obstacle.

I have seen this, but I'm on Linux so I assumed that Wine's rendering was at fault. Good to know that it is not.

I adjusted the zoom and pitch in the MAPVIEW.TXT file in the /data folder so I can easily zoom right in with the mouse wheel and move using the RMB. Make sure to backup before changing.
Does an upgrade overwrite MAPVIEW.TXT? Does the game read a MAPVIEW.TXT file from the user data folder?

Re: Looking for Some Practice Games

Send me a PM if either of you are looking for another opponents. Medium battles, potluck terrain, and potluck armies are OK. Or you may choose armies, if you like.

Re: Multiplayer emails

I thought the "Board Preferences" settings only affected the forum software. Maybe someone from Slitherine will answer this time.

Re: Multiplayer emails

Any idea what or where that setting might be? I only see a setting to enable/disable PBEM notifications, nothing more.

Multiplayer turn save and continue

In multiplayer games, can a player tell that the opponent saved and continued the turn?

Re: Hidden Enemy Troops Rallying

Add an option to remove the enemy rally indicator text only. The option default is on for single player and (perhaps) off for multiplayer.

Re: Wanted: Horse Lord round 2 warm up battle

I can handle another battle if anyone else needs practice for the next round. However, it has to be Kushan (130 BC-476 AD) vs Sassanid Persian (224-349 AD) because I would like some experience with the Sassanid army list.

Re: Wanted: Horse Lord round 2 warm up battle

PM sent.

My second battle was about to end in another defeat when I finally broke an elephant. Thanks to the cascade cohesion tests, the battle continues for a few more turns. Sometimes dumb luck is needed. :lol:

Wanted: Horse Lord round 2 warm up battle

I cannot create the challenge because I don't have the DLC. Mirrored battle OK. Expect amusingly inept tactics and an easy win, unless you suck as much as I do. :lol:

Re: Grand Christmas 2018 FOG2 Tournament - Rise of Rome

Round 4 vs Macedonians seems like the closest battles so far. My games ended on a margin of single digits and it looks like others are going the same way too. Great terrain with both sides fighting over that hill. Anyone with a landslide - what was the chink in the other sides set up? Having a clue...
