Re: Unmovable ships ?

The problem is that: a) we did not implement ship models firing from either broadside - they can shoot from either side, but the smoke will puff out on the side that is implemented, not on the side that is shooting. To make it work on both sides we would have to have implement "turrets", which we di...

Re: Charges across rough terrain/streams

They will suffer terrain disorder for whichever is worse of the terrain in the square they are in or the square they are charging. The enemy being charged will only Suffer terrain disorder for the square they are in. However, the combat will count as “not in open terrain” for both units. (See manual...

Re: Superior pikes charger lancers - and become Fragmented

In short, pikes are not supposed to be charging lancers. If they do, they lose their normal non-depth Pike POA, and the lancers get their 100 POA for lancers (which is cancelled if they charge stationary steady pikes) With a full fourth rank the pikes will go from a net +200 POA when receiving a cha...

Re: Totally Stuck: How to remove units from a force?

If somehow all of the cavalry are already in the same command as each other, presumably as a result of switching one of the generals from the cavalry to the infantry, and then switching his original unit to the other cavalry command, you are stuck. But you can still move the units as individual unit...

Re: I suggest upgrade Italic Rebel in later game in FOGII

The conversion is not dependent on army lists, it is a direct unit by unit translation. Each unit in FOGE translates to one specific FOG2 unit. (Though there is some post-processing in FOG2 for horse archers and pre-Marian legions) So, in order for FOG2 to use different units for Italian rebels afte...

Re: Multiplayer issue - corrupt or invalid response from server

Guys, please email support@slitherine.co.uk

As this issue isn't affecting everyone, it may be something to do with your specific accounts (username, password or something) that the new server code isn't coping with.

support have access to this data, and can therefore assist in fixing the issue.

Re: Slingers and javelinmen "out of arc" although standing close enough

Units have a 45 degree arc of fire from the direction they are facing. As it says in the tooltip, the units you are trying to target are out of arc. (Not out of range).

Re: How About Some more Campaigns?

There are Wars of the Roses and Suleiman the Magnificent campaigns in the in-game downloadable user content. These use the existing maps.

The problem with creating campaigns with new maps is that the map creating process is so arcane.

Re: SUGGESTION: Changes To Victory Conditions

I’m not sure about lowering % to win if the C-in-C is lost. Human players will target the cpu General while making sure theirs is well protected behind the front lines. Could become a bit of an exploit of the game mechanics. Yes, that is one of the reasons that we have somewhat underplayed the effe...

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

Models having armor or not is one issue, but the source justifying that hirdsmen are less protected than huscarl is another. I am only curious about the latter. Our main source was Ian Heath's Armies of the Dark Ages, which states, when discussing 7th-9th century Saxons: "Mail byrnies and helmets w...
