Re: Field of Glory Digital League Season 8 Battles.

Thanks for these AARs. I am really enjoying them and learning some of the finer points of game play. I was wondering if it is possible to break some of the longer games into 2 or more videos? Myself, I have satellite internet with limited data downloads. So I try to do my downloads using either WinX...

Re: I've lost 11 games.

Bear in mind this game has been out for several years now. Most people that you play will have quite a bit of experience. And if you are new to the game, you will have a tough time winning until you gain experience. What I recommend to new players is to pick an interesting time frame. Then pick an i...

Re: Multiplayer mechanics?

No. You could perhaps take screenshots before ending your turn? Actually I do that. It is useful when you want to figure out what just happened or just review to see how the strategy worked out. However from time to time, I will forget. Any chance of an option to automatically take a screenshot whe...

Re: Welcome to 1.5.31

It is now possible to switch back and forth between Hotseat mode and AI mode during the course of a battle. You can turn Hotseat mode On and Off in the Settings menu. The change takes effect on the next enemy turn - not including their first (Deployment) turn.
That is a very nice feature!!!

Re: Skirmishers and command

I have attached skirmishers to a generals command for rally purposes. In early game before the main armies clash, I have pulled back disrupted skirmishers and attached a general to see if I can rally it back up. Even in other points during the game, I have done the same if the situation is appropria...

Skirmishers and command

I have been wondering about light troops and command. In a custom game, skirmishers appear grouped as independent commands without a general. So since they are not assigned to a general, do they suffer the loss of the free 45 degree turn? I assume not. If I decide to a assign a skirmisher to a gener...

Re: Mercenary/provincial unit upkeep cost

It would be helpful to see the total maintenance cost of an army listed on the army panel. Also would be helpful to see the maintenance cost of each unit in the unit panel when hovering over the unit in the army panel.

Median Medium Infantry

I thought I would go back and play a nostaligic matchup of Assyrians vs Medians. I remember the Medians as having lots of nice MI spearmen but what I don't remember is them being below average morale. So have they always been below average morale or were they tweaked at some point and I just missed ...

Re: Update required??

Are right, this afternoon, I uninstalled and reinstalled the game several times. Then updated to 1.3.0.0. Still when I attempt to enter multiplayer, I first get the message "a new version of the game is available". And then, I cannot get into multiplayer. Then I went to my other computer which also ...

Update required??

I just tried to log in to multiplayer and received the message that I must update to the latest version. I have version 1.3.0.0 which is the latest version as far as I know and I have been playing multiplayer with it since it was released. Any idea what is going on?

Re: Achaemenid Persians and Medians

And here is another reference to Lancers.

"And they say that Artacamas, the king of Greater Phrygia, is coming at the head of 8000 horse and not fewer than 40,000 lancers and peltasts."

Since the lancers are not horse, they must be spears.

Re: Achaemenid Persians and Medians

Xenophon references 30,000 Persians composed of 10,000 targeteers, 10,000 bows and 10,000 slingers supporting the Medes. Anybody know if the targeteers are sword and shield men? I think they are as in another section he describes men armed with shield and sword or scimitar. I am guessing they are me...
