Version 1.5.21 Update

Hi everyone,

Field of Glory II has been updated to version 1.5.21

You can download the update from here

Mirrors:
http://ftp.eu.matrixgames.com/pub/Field ... 1.5.21.zip
http://ftp.us.matrixgames.com/pub/Field ... 1.5.21.zip

• AI:
o Improved AI for the cavalry wings of cavalry armies.

• Gameplay:
o Non-cataphract cavalry will now break off from infantry unless they will have a significant advantage in the ensuing melee. (Previously they would stay in combat if they had a very slight advantage, which tended to lead to an attritional combat that they were unlikely to win in the end). Break off logic for cataphracts has been left unchanged because they often have a better chance of winning the melee than the impact, so staying in combat if they have some advantage is often the better option.
o Heavy Infantry that are of “Below Average” (or “Somewhat Disheartened”) or worse quality (quality <= 90) no longer get the +1 CT modifier for Heavy Foot.

• UI:
o Information text will now automatically scroll to the top when you click on a different Army List, Campaign or Epic Battles module.

• Manual:
o Change: Close Order Warbands and troops of “Below Average” (or “Somewhat Disheartened”) or worse quality are excluded from the +1 Cohesion Test modifier for being Heavy Foot.

• Bug Fixes:
o Fixed bug that could sometimes cause music to play (despite music volume being on zero) on reloading a game saved in force selection or deployment mode.
o Fixed bug that corrupted campaign unit database if player rolled back to previous stage of campaign instead of playing one of the choices in a pursue/don't pursue decision.
o Fixed bug that could sometimes cause the game to crash if a new sandbox campaign was started after playing (or loading) another one in the same session.

My game says 1.5.3 so this is not an update for me apparently. The installer says I already have a newer version.

I wonder what the problem may be that the update process is so convoluted. I opened FOG2 and navigated to where I wished to be and a pop up opened informing me that an update was available. So I clicked on the button to advance to the update. That put me back to the game menu without a clue as to where the update was. So I exited and and clicked update on the game start page which sent me to the auto update pop up which then told me there was an error and so no download. Then I came here and saw this thread and downloaded the update.

It is not a big deal and certainly miniscule in the scheme of things. However it is irritating when auto-update is so undependable. I am not just talking about this game. My remarks are about auto update in general. Perhaps it should be re-named non-auto-update.

Hi Elmo,

The build you currently have is a year old. You can resolve your issue, by uninstalling and redownloading the game. This can be done by logging in to the Slitherine site and locating the
[PC] Installer v1.5.12 from the dowload section of https://www.slitherine.com/game/field-of-glory-ii.

After, your game will update to the latest version :)

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

- Surtur

I reinstalled the game and Immortal Fire. Now when I try to update it says there is an error with the FTP server. Will download 1.5.21 manually and try to install it.

Elmo

Edit - Manually downloading and installing 1.5.21 worked. Thanks.

This link simply times out whenever I try it. I went thru the store products page where my game is displayed and it timed out via that link as well. I tried getting at the file via ftp software rather than the browser and those attempts timed out as well.

and the launcher update button has never ever worked for me.

Y'know, Georg there has some very interesting posts. I'm not sure how interested he is in ancient wargames, but he certainly comes armed with a host of remedies...

Ah, spam post this refers to has been removed...

Same for me, I can't download it from this page or from "my page" and the check for updates download (from the game menu) has never worked. I have been able to download previous versions before from here or from "my page" but now all I get is that the page cannot be reached.

re the bounce off rules

"Non-cataphract cavalry" does this include Camel-mounted cavalry or are "cavalry" and "camelry" treated as distinct categories(ie only applies to the former)

Are 1.5.19 and 1.5.20 rolled into 1.5.21? Patch notes skip from 1.5.18 to 1.5.21.

Yes. Those were beta versions. It confuses me less if the beta and release versions have different version numbers. (Numbers are not in short supply).

Says you. I ran out of 3s yesterday!

Cool. Thanks brother! I knew it was a stupid question but wanted to double check. And trust me when I tell you stupid questions are never in short supply when it comes to me.
