Re: Elephants panicking

The African bush elephant has seemingly never been used in warfare. I didn't realize that. I was aware that the Successors got their war elephants from India. I wonder if it was just a matter of the Mediterranean-area Empires not having come into contact with the Bush Elephant? It can't be that the...

Re: Elephants panicking

I expect its either me - or perhaps people getting used to dealing with elephants - but they seem a lot easier to put down these days. Certainly they are devastating in a flank attack - but head on; seems to be a waste of 60 points. They are good for giving cav the yips - but easily bypassed. I don...

Playing the game on a different computer

My long-suffering old PC seems to finally be "hors du combat", and I'm forced to move my headquarters to the spartan accommodations of my wife's laptop. I downloaded Steam, and certain key games on my Steam account that I can't live without. Pike and Shot Campaign being downloaded first! :D The only...

I enjoy this game - I just wish it would work better for me!

I was excited to see the Burma Road expansion advertised...I've really enjoyed playing this title, and though I have yet to get through all the content produced up to this point, its good to see it continuing to get support. I find the way aircraft work in the game vastly superior (read: more realis...

Re: Order of Battle returns to Asia with Burma Road!

Was very excited to see this!
I've very much enjoyed this title, especially the opportunity to play campaigns in theatres not generally covered, such as the Chinese invasion of Japan.

Glad to see it continuing to get support!

Re: Field of Glory II is announced!

I've been waiting a long time for this, and if the screenshots, and Mr. Scott's outstanding work on Pike and Shot are any indications, my prayers are about to be answered. Thank you in advance for your hard work. There have been games that came close to simulating ancient warfare with a degree of hi...

Re: Japanese Rising Sun Campaign Specialization Bug?

I just did a quick #igotnukes thing to whip through the U.S. Pacific campaign. All scenarios started properly but I noticed that Leyte, which I think is what he is talking about ("the return to the Philippines"), and Operation Downfall took the longest to load. Largest maps? Most units initially pl...

Re: Japanese Rising Sun Campaign Specialization Bug?

Looking at the code, it should actualy give 3 stars to the first three air units you purchase. Note that this includes both fighters and bombers. It does not affect aircraft already purchased however, while still counting them toward the limit. That needs to be fixed. Is this the issue you are seei...

Japanese Rising Sun Campaign Specialization Bug?

Hello...I'm a late-comer to this game, and have mostly played the original Pacific Campaigns plus the Morning Sun China campaign. To illustrate just how recently I started playing, I never even saw the original Specialization system. There are many things I like about the game, but I am saddened to ...

Re: Order of Battle: the new Import tool

I realize this is an old thread, so I'm not sure how likely it is that my question will be seen. I didn't buy OOB when it first came out, so have only really gotten deeply into playing it in the last month or two. I've just finished the Morning Sun Campaign, which I found very enjoyable, chiefly bec...

Re: Le Roi Soleil - Challenges

I understand that the Potluck God is a fickle and mercurial diety...and clearly one who has cursed me. I was more looking for advice on how to best use the Hungarian Rebels in battle. Though clearly some armies are better than others, I always assume that there must be some tactic or technique to ma...

Re: Le Roi Soleil - Challenges

Can someone kindly tell me what a HUNGARIAN KURUC REBELLION army is good for, other than giving Habsburg musketeers target practice? As near as I can tell, they are an appalling waste of quality mounts. The fact that over 90% of the army is on horseback is primarily useful because they can move fast...

Re: TYW INsurrection Event - Results Thread

My apologies for the delay in posting this battle report. The French Commander was indisposed for several days, the stress and exertion of battle having caused his gout to flare up. Rumors that he was in fact ill with syphilis are both unfounded and unkind. I regret that I did not record the specifi...

If recruitment is not yet closed, I am eager to join what will be my second tournament. If I continue to play opponents much better than myself, perhaps I'll
