Re: Enjoying the Game

Me and a few friends are having a blast playing BA2. Would be nice if BA1 units could be brought into BA2 so we could play with British and American units or the BA2 enhancements could be retrofitted to BA1, especially the skirmish mode.

Wurfenhammer Question

In an AI game I charged a Wurfenhammer unit with multiple infantry units. When I got within 2 or 3 squares it fired on me with rockets 2 or 3 times in a single turn. Offensively this unit can only fire once every 2 or 3 turns so this defensive fire behavior seems incorrect. Is this expected behavior?

Re: What happened to the battle ambient music

Update: I found my copy of the BA2 EAP and reinstalled, grabbed the music files and uninstalled it again. Sweet! I like the ambient sounds of battle when playing BA2.

@butterforce: can you make this available to us for use? I didn't keep my EAP install file.

Re: Scouting Questions

Updated based on Soar's test: The scouting command does increase the 2 square range to 3 of scouts into terrain features that provide cover for infantry. It also increases the view of open terrain from 6 to 7 I think. All scout infantry units can see two squares (3 if using scouting command) into co...

Re: Update problem

I just noticed that error message shows BA2-EAP.exe. You need to uninstall the EAP version. You should have received an email with a special link to download the release version. You can't patch the EAP version with the 1.01 patch. No, I'm not a Steam person :) I looked at http://www.slitherine.com/...

@Soar: Thanks for that response. It pretty well clears up scouting for me.

Re: Battle Academy 2 gets updated!

Sounds like you downloaded the 1.0.1 patch, which is quite small. Install the 1.0 release version then apply the patch. You should have gotten an email regarding the download of a 1.0 version with special vehicle skins for being part of the EAP program.

Re: Sighting Bug?

Well, I have to say that seems odd to me. My opponent in a current game said he saw my unit, exact type, fire at a suspected enemy location even though he had no unit within 10 squares. Must have some soldiers good at identifying battle sounds to specific vehicle type and location.

Scouting Questions

It is my understanding that a scout infantry unit can reveal a hidden unit 2 squares away. 1. Is this automatic for the scout infantry unit or must it execute the scouting command like non-scout units? 2. My experience thus far is that I've seen the scouting command reveal a hidden infantry unit in ...

Re: Battle Academy 2 gets updated!

Was your original download via Stream? If so, don't believe you can mix and match installs from both sites. If that isn't the case and your have the EAP version installed, that version must be uninstalled before installing the official released version. If neither of those use cases describe you, th...

So I need someone to confirm this is either a bug or it is expected behavior.

Re: Loading on a tablet

My guess is it will not play on Windows 8 RT. It would play on a Windows Surface Pro since it runs a full version of Windows.

I'm certain you are allowed to have the game on two machines you own so long as they aren't being used at the same time. Slitherine will correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: Steam & MP Confused

Unless you regularly use Steam, lay it aside and install the final version of the game you downloaded from Slitherine. You should have gotten an email about that when BA2 went live. Re login, you must use your same username/password combo you used before. Nothing has changed there, whether you insta...

Sighting Bug?

My opponent fired this unit at the woods tile in front of it and when he did his unit light up in my view, even though I had no unit with a line of sight to it. My opponent also reported that one of my units appeared in his view when I fired it at a woods tile, even though he had no unit with a line...

Re: MP Scenarios

Additionally you can select wilderness, farmland or urban terrain. Gerry, not sure I see your issue since you can create any type of MP game using skirmish mode. Skirmish game mode for SP and MP makes BA2 a fabulous game with high replayability.

Re: MP Scenarios

Hello Gerry, Sorry, can I ask what you mean by meeting engagements? There are two kind of multiplayer games: 1 vs 1 PvP battles, which involves a player playing against another player with various combinations of units; and the other is Coop Mode, where two players play against the AI. In skirmish ...

BA2 for Android

I know it is much easier to create a game on the closed system of the iPad than the much more open system of Android. That said I'd certainly love to have this game on my Android tablet. Hope you guys have it on your radar and can find the resources to make it happen.
