Re: Anglo-Saxon armour question . . .

The armour issue has been discussed before. http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=477&t=93601&p=801194&hilit=anglo#p801109 Models having armor or not is one issue, but the source justifying that hirdsmen are less protected than huscarl is another. I am only curious about the latter. Our ma...

What is "rough ground" in real life?

Thinking of the rough ground about the same elevation with the open ground in Field of Glory II, I am wondering what rough ground in game looks like in real life. Anyone could give any reference or pictures about the rough battlefield? :roll:

Re: Are the Etruscans perhaps a bit short-changed?

I think the quality rating in FOGII is according to the relative performance of each party in the historical records. It reads like the Etruscans lost more than the Romans did. Quality may reflect their organization, their morale and their command efficiency. BTW, raw Hoplites are only 25 POA short ...

Re: Byzantine Vs Sassanid Persian Elephants

Plus, elephants don't have automatic cohesion drop if flank-charged by horses, but they do if charged by foot. Besides, don't give up shooting even you just see 0 results. Multiple shooting with multiple 0s will give you cohesion test of elephants at last.

Re: Avars 558-631 AD . . .

It has got Nomad Light Horse Archers twice in the army list, once as 0/2 and once as 1+0/3. The other two Avar armies do not have this. Is it a mistake? In the "Decline and Fall" Field of Glory table top army list book the Avars have their own Avar Light Cavalry, plus from 558 to 631 AD they can ha...

Re: Do we have any French speakers this season?

Perhaps google translation can do the job.

There are only reserve places at the moment.

Re: Any chance the animation of the units be looked at?

All right. I used to think that each animation starting and ending gesture could be tuned to the exactly same gesture to fix it. If it couldn't be done, that's all right.

Re: Any chance the animation of the units be looked at?

Is it the sword and shield animation that was bothering you melm? It is but not just sword and shield animation. From waiting changing to fidgeting, then from fidgeting to raising shields and arms, each time you have the jerking feel. So I say the connection between each piece could be checked. Som...

Re: Any chance the animation of the units be looked at?

I checked the mew lists of Iberian. The lists look quite genuine. However, I found that the animation of the units is not smooth, which give people sudden gesture change feeling. I think that is because of the connection of different pieces of animation does not end or start from the same gesture. ...

Re: Return of pursuing madness

It looks suddenly in game. However, it may not be sudden in IRL battle as the game is “an episodic "action-counteraction" model”

Re: Field of Glory II Tournament Suggestions

I have idea how to resolve not finished games: Let computer play rest of turns for both sides and take result from it (maybe with some penalty for person which delay). But before the time run out, you don't know the game is abandoned or not. So it's hard to tell when the computer should kick in to ...

Perhaps Rus' could be having ally of Khazar of Pecheneg in war 941 with Byzantine. As Wikipedia Rus'-Byzantine War(941) entry says The Rus' and their allies, the Pechenegs, disembarked on the northern coast of Asia Minor and swarmed over Bithynia in May 941. Same entry in Russian says(google transla...
