Re: Chariot not auto-drop cohesion

The opponent's chariot rout my Assyrian medium foot, pursued and then charged to the flank of my chariot, exposing his flank to my Guard Foot. But when my Guard foot charging the chariot, it didn't auto-drop cohesion. Please advise. (Forum is extremely slow from my end. I am not able to upload the ...

Re: Hidden Enemy Troops Rallying

To be more specific, I welcome showing troop rally from rout but not troop rally from fragmented or disrupted. I think that might raise the same suspicions of AI "cheating". It sounds like a dilemma. Of course, the best way to please both sides is to code that shows all information in SP but hides ...

Re: Early Middle Ages: winners post your results here . . .

Div B melm(Sassanid Perisan) beat Morbio(Lombards) 67-36 A very nice and enjoyable game. My horse archers fall to the ambush of Lombards skirmisher. Volleys after volleys of arrows almost kill all my riders. Three elephants in the center have chain break and my two cataphracts are routed by lancers,...

Re: When do you dismount lancers?

I would dismount the lancers if faced by spear-armed heavy foot, as the lancers don't seem to bounce off them and the spear armed heavy foot have a better chance. How do you dismount troops anyway, and what happens to the horses? Can you dismount then remount? Or is it something you have to do duri...

Question on armor advantage

I am currently confused by the armor advantage number. From my view, some armored vs protected has +8 POA; armored vs some armored has +16 POA; armored vs protected has +25 POA; fully armored vs armored has +50 POA; fully armored vs protected has +100 POA; fully armored vs some some armored has +100...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

I'm posting mobile right now so more later, but imo flank attacks are vital to both gameplay and historicity, and should not be touched. Flank attacks should primarily happen on a flank, not in the middle of a battle line. That is why they are called flank attacks. To be honest, this is not true in...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

It is certainly not because I am jealously hoarding knowledge, I can tell you that. Those videos you see took a lot of time and effort to make. Especially the AARs. It doesn't help that I am no good at video editing so it probably takes me a lot longer than it should because I am a dummy at it. But...

Re: Unit Costing Anomalies

I agree that they would still be a solid buy at 45. I still remember the terror that was Sabir Foot. Impact foot with 50% bows.....lol what? :lol: Are there a lot more mixed units coming up in the future? If not, I see no reason to muck with the points right now. I don't have the RoP DLC, but durin...

Re: Unit Costing Anomalies

I don't know what your point is. The Assyrian Medium Foot are currently 42 points, because the 50% bows are costed at 1 per Unitsize. My point was that if they are indeed firing at 67 % effect the 50% Bows should be costed at 1.34 points per Unitsize, or round it up to 1.5 to make it simpler. That ...

Re: Unit Costing Anomalies

The basic cost of Assyrian medium mix is 5 per 100 UnitSize for “protected and average”, so the total basic cost is 5*6 = 30. The bow ability is 2 per 100 UnitSize. The sword ability is 1 per 100 UnitSize. So Assyiran medium mixed is basic + ability = 30 + 2*6*(2/3) + 1*6 = 44. which is not 42, if w...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

Thanks Pete for the sample. There can be two separate questions. Q1: Does the sample win-draw-loss ratio comply with tooltip figure? In warband(close order) case, the ratio is around 15-70-15. So we can do such test. H0: win ratio = 15%, H1: win ratio != 15% Then we need to collect win ratio sample ...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

There are lots of places in the scripts where RNG is used - e.g. shooting casualties, close combat resolution, cohesion tests, decisions whether to evade, evade and pursuit distances, AI decisions etc. etc. etc. But they all access the same Rand() function. If there was a logical error, it would be...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

That code only tests the Win:Draw:Lose ratios, it does not test CT results. Sorry, but I don't know about the structure of computer games, but you seem to be saying that there are a number of different RNG's operating in the game at the same time. Have I understood that correctly? If so, do they op...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

To be fair we should do a rigorous test of the Win Draw Loss RNG and the CT test RNG. I mean that will settle it once and for all. Bugs in code do exist The tooltip is said to be the result of 1000 trials' result. The ideal way is to do more than 1000 to see whether the result is in accordance with...

Re: What did I miss here?

The ZOC vanish when units are in melee. So, yes, your two units in melee have no ZOC in this case.
