Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

A couple things to be aware of: - Data mismatches due to a patch are expected and will not be reported to the players as a mismatch. Players helping with the beta may have seen otherwise due to hotfixes released between proper beta versions. - Shortly after a patch is available, the server will not ...

Re: Bug with minimal Roll Dice

I believe the range of possible effectiveness values and experience levels has grown since the specification used for the manual. There is a cap on the total of seven, but not on the two components. The result is that an Unstoppable Elite unit doesn't get the full benefit of these stats, but it can ...

Re: Scripts Modified - Game to be abandoned (Another Fatty)

I’m no expert in modding at all, I haven’t had the time to really play with mods yet, but : There should be a way to mod safely the game without these inconveniences. A sort of mod folder, and a mod manager in game to select the required mod or the normal vanilla game. There is a way to do that. Co...

Re: Unable to move directly from one province to another.

The regions are connected. If there is a combination of weather, bonuses, or penalties that makes an indirect route between adjacent regions faster, you can request the direct route anyway by holding Shift when giving a movement order.

Re: MP Bug - Was brought back into the game and can see entire map

A fix has been made in the latest server update to address the issue of players being reactivated some time after surrendering from a game. If this issue returns after surrendering again, please let us know.

This situation has been known to lead to some inconsistencies for the surrendering player.

Re: Leaving MP game

If you could provide the name of a game where this happened and the turn numbers when you surrendered and when you were un-surrendered, it could help us track down the issue as we haven't been able to duplicate this in testing. Thank you.

Re: Automatic moves by the AI

I can see that you have been incorrectly flagged as being inactive in that game and that is why the AI is handling Decisions for you, although I assume your army and region orders are being executed as expected. Looking back, it appears this error happened around turn 3. Have you noticed other issue...

I was wondering where & how one would be able to adjust the 'difficulty settings'.
You would have to search for references to GetDiffMode() in the scripts, it is used an various systems.

Re: Getting Started

What is the relationship between the *.xlsx files in Data\Database\Empires_DB.zip and the CSV files? The xslx files are easy to read and change, but appear to have no game effect. Are they intended to be "saved as" to the .CSV files in order to be used? That is accurate, the XLSX files are a source...

Re: [BUG] Multi-Player Crashes Operating System (East West North South)

The other issues you are having before the crash suggest a more general problem with your installation or a conflict with your configuration. Are you having issues in the single player game? Can you provide the system info requested in the sticky on this forum? There should not be two levels of game...

Re: Getting Started

A reminder that if you are modifying scripts, CSVs, or maps, it is recommended that you create your own scenario to work in as described at the link above rather than editing gameplay files directly in your game installation. Otherwise, you may be not be able to play in multiplayer games.

Re: Empire can't be properly opened after closing FOGII

The problem persists even after reboot. Steam just believes that Empires is still running after it is closed and FOGII launched. We will investigate. In the meantime, are you able work around the problem by declining when offered to automatically launch the other game, then exiting manually and sta...

Re: BUG? Nobody else in Multi-Player Game

From within a multiplayer game, the quickest way to see who the other players are is probably to open the Ledger and scroll through the Factions, Legacy, or CDR tables. Identification of players shouldn't be affected by fog of war.

Re: [SOLVED] Different Scripts Error Message

If one player has made edits to the scripts, map, or gameplay data, even if it is not meant to advantage themselves, it is very likely that players will experience inconsistencies in the simulation between turns and the warning message shouldn't be ignored.

Re: Empire can't be properly opened after closing FOGII

Empires shouldn't be running if neither the window for the game launcher nor the game itself are visible. However, if it is for some reason, or Steam believes that it is, does the problem return after a reboot?

Re: BUG? Nobody else in Multi-Player Game

In a running game with more than 2 players, the game list will show A / B Players where A is the number of players who have completed their turn and B is the number of players. The tooltip will list the players and who has played their turn. Are you seeing something different?
