Re: Bug on hills borders

Everything looks in order, so unfortunately I can only surmise it is a bug in the driver. With such a new card they may not have put all the DX9 code paths through especially thorough testing. I would suggest checking via the card application whether it is trying to do anything clever with the textu...

Re: Bug on hills borders

Can you please paste it into a post here, the download site you linked seems to want to download an EXE. We really only need the first 100 lines or so. As RBS says we have only seen this previously on emulated machines. Are you running in a VM for example?

Cheers

Re: Steam ver crashes, Disc ver plays but can't get dlc

I would guess the issue is that the game is trying to run using Vulkan on a GPU that doesn't support it. The original disk copy would be the pre-vulcan version, Steam auto-updates. You need to force the game to run on your nVidia device rather than the (I assume) Intel low-power GPU it will try and ...

Re: Question: Does anyone know where GetUnitLOS() lives?

It is a function which calls into the engine to do the LOS calculations. They would likely be performance prohibitive in script.

Re: Screen issues

I am not sure what -w in target means, but you switch the games to Windowed mode via the in-game options (or by editing the Documents/My Games/<game folder>/OPTIONS.TXT file, but this is only needed if you cannot access the in-game options). You can play Windowed mode with no frame which will have t...

Re: Sluggish Mouse Movement in the Settings Menu

I had this problem with several of their other games, they were never able to solve it. FOGII mouse worked fine until an update, now the mouse is slow and sluggish and very annoying. I wish they would take this issue seriously but alas its been several years and the problem is still there. Pike and...

Re: Best for PBEM

Battle Academy and FoG2 both have very strong MP communities, if either setting is of interest.

Sorry guys - the issue seems to be sporadic and we have the server team working on it.

Re: LOS test tool in Scenario Editor

From memory I don't think there is. The H key enables and disables the LOS in the editor, so I guess you could place units and then toggle that?

Re: Decide Folder for Mods and Campaigns

This isn't currently a high priority on my todo list for the game. While it may be useful in specific setups for a small number of players there are just too many updates we can make that would affect more players. But it is on the global task list from when it was suggested.

Can you guys list the browsers you are using, and whether you have IE/Edge installed on your machines please. These issues seem to be SSL certificate related.

Edited to remove your password - never post it in a public forum...

What happens when you try and login? If you know your password then it should work fine, what error message are you seeing?

Re: Multiplayer issue - corrupt or invalid response from server

Just a guess, but does your username or password contain any non-alphanumeric characters?

Try deleting the OPTIONS.TXT file in Documents/My Games/FieldOfGlory2

Re: Multiplayer issue - corrupt or invalid response from server

It's working fine for me here. It could be a local ISP issue connecting to the server, as that kind of message generally means that the HTTP call has responded with some custom "Cannot connect" page rather than getting a response from the server.

Re: the game crashes when I export battle

It looks like it's actually crashing when FoG2 tries to start. Can you run FoG2 independently (that is, when it is not being started by Empires automatically)?

Re: FOG2 won't launch

Why would you want to run a game as administrator? We go to great lengths to try and aid in keeping your system secure by NOT requiring that you run as administrator :)

Which EXE requires you to click off the Admin toggle? The launcher or the game EXE?

Re: Multiplayer losing VGA signal

Is it possible that the card is overheating? That could cause the behaviour you are seeing.
