Re: Composition of the new army lists

Thanks Richard. I think its worth remembering that FOG1 initially came with no army lists at all and only got 2 from the 2nd Punic Wars later on. From the look of it with the FOG2 base game we will be getting the equivalent of most of what came in the base FOG1 game and Rise Of Rome combined.

Re: Composition of the new army lists

Bit of a cheek I know and we have seen some of them in the screen shots, but any chance of a full rundown of the lists and list variants that will ship with the FOG II base game please ?

Kind regards

Re: Field of Glory II is announced!

Hi Richard
This is really good news. Will the campaign system allow for multi player as well as single player ?

Many thank

Issues with registering the Battle Pack for FOG UV

Hi I already owned fog and all the existing DLC and have been able to download the game easily and activate all the packs with the possible exception of the Scenario Battle Pack. I can enter its serial number and save it but when I then exit and go back in again the serial number has vanished. Howev...

Unit Icon counter mod for Pike & Shot

I have always been a bit frustrated with the fact that the limited (for entirely understandable commercial reasons) number of "Unit Icon" images that shipped with the game don't always correspond with the troop types they represent for a particular scenario. A number of scenario designers have start...

Re: RELEASED! Yari & Teppo (the Pike & Shot Japanese mod)

Maybe build something like "jsgme" (a file swap mod program) into the game and have it activated via a extra click bar in the "Advanced Options" menu below "Compass: On" or whatever the last bar is going to be in this game at the moment. Perhaps a toggle between "Artistic Terrain Tiles" & "Conventio...

Re: RELEASED! Yari & Teppo (the Pike & Shot Japanese mod)

For those players who prefer a more conventional approach to depicting terrain some or all of the time will there be the ability to swap to a more conventional terrain set built into the game?

Re: RELEASED! Yari & Teppo (the Pike & Shot Japanese mod)

This is really great news, wonder if the "extra features" include a multi player option for the Campaigns mode ? Will be buying in any event.

Keep up the good work.

Re: Extra Nations Campaign Mod

Hi Paul
Well done with this mod nice to see some of my graphics images make it on to the virtual battlefield. Its to be hoped that scenario designers take advantage of it to extend the coverage of the game to cover battles using the new armies you have introduced.

Kind regards

Re: Campaigns - what next?

Fair enough. However any chance of adding a working elephant graphic to the game with the next update so user content can extend to the Indian subcontinent ? I wonder what other periods are under consideration? Perhaps if horse & musket was coming first you could do "wars in India" fairly early on f...

Re: Wars of the Condottieri.

The revised medium crossbowmen class and the new Longbowmen graphics that come with "Pike & Shot Campaigns" should make this easier still, battles of Sir John Hawkwood etc. And how about the 100 Years War and the Wars of the Roses as well while we are at it. Lots of really good scenarios to convert ...

Hi Guys
Does anybody know if the printed manual that comes with the boxed version of "Pike & Shot Campaigns covers the new campaigns aspect of the game or if there is a separate PDF document for this?

Many thanks
