Re: Modding Question

well, it seems that it is impossible to use a General to the best of his ability, as I stated in the above example.... For me it ADDS to the games immersiveness to be unable to launch invasions of other countries because of my poor generals, I am currently (as Sparta) forced to campaign within my ow...

Re: Is Sparta unplayable

I'm restarting my Sparta campaign using the tweak suggested by RBS on Generals influence on battles from tonight, i'll post an AAR accordingly, honestly think it'll improve over the current situation

Re: Modding Question

Okay the feedback I had from RBS is that I need to tweak the information that Empires is sending for FoG battles to use, apparently it's all done in Empires.... How can I edit the game so that my preferred options (see above) are implemented.... in other words how does Empires send information to Fo...

Re: Is Sparta unplayable

I typically play evenly matched battles (or battles where you’re unfairly disfavored due to army size or terrain) in FOG2 but i find that the Spartans hoplites and later phalanx are so incredibly strong that once you get going you steamroll most opponents. It’s important to start out really aggress...

Modding Question

Hi, as I've previously said I absolutely love this game & it's integration with FoG, superb! However I definitely am not comfortable with one aspect of the game which is the inability to guarantee that your Generals work to the best of their ability... The crux is that (repeatedly) I will assign a G...

Liaison Tools Modding Questions

I hope to achieve the following by tweaking the Liaison Tools file however as a non programmer / scripter I'm hesitant to change the file without seeking guidance from those cleverer (and more experienced) than I am... I've obviously created a Mod folder in the appropriate place so am now wondering ...

Re: Is Sparta unplayable

Okay, I got a win, however it was in a totally unsporting manner and Zeus would be spitting blood and feathers if he was aware of my skullduggery..... So I deployed my entire army 4000 men approximately in 9 hoplite units with just one unit of shieldbearers (it's been a tough campaign), out of sight...

What actually became of Sparta during the time period? Did they get ROFLMAO-stomped and made into someone else's backyard? :P
Yes, seemingly because of their lack of roflcopters

Is Sparta unplayable

I reckon I'm a pretty good player having won as Athens and Achaia but I really cannot fathom Sparta out... Economy and manpower suck, when the inevitable war with Aetolia happens ok its a win, not a great one but a win nontheless, THEN Athens blitzkriegs through Boioitia and into Aetolia & Acarnania...

I think it should work, though the program swap might (or might not) need to be done manually. It won't add any new units though, because the translation database has not changed as yet.
Thanks
