Romans v Warbands

Hi folks, back to playing FoG II after a break, and I'm a bit bemused by a few recent games (against the AI). I've been playing late Romans in the Stilicho campaign. My bemusement is around why, when Roman infantry initiate melee, their chances of taking big casualties from the initial impact are so...

Re: Desktop PC Spec for FoG II Etc?

As a follow-up question, are there any manufacturers you guys would either recommend - or recommend avoiding - when it comes to buying a ready-made base unit?

Desktop PC Spec for FoG II Etc?

Hi folks, my old desktop has finally given up the ghost, and I was wondering if anyone on here can suggest what spec I need to go for to - i) Run FoG II at a reasonable speed. It was taking forever on my old PC, which didn't have a dedicated graphics card or a powerful processor. As FoG II is more o...

User produced material???

Hi folks,

I've just got back into playing BA2 and I'm loving it!
I have the Kursk expansion, but was wondering if there are any user made scenarios and/or campaigns - and if so where I can find them?
Sorry if this question is a bit basic! :D

TIA,
Bombax

Exciting news!
Question: any plans to add the additional nation-specific figures from the TT mod to this or future releases?

Re: Multiplayer Taliban...

I think the point is that if you transition from SP to MP you are going to have to accept that the game is often completely different in MP and the tactics that you have been using successfully in SP may not work so well (or at all) in MP. I think that's really a different point altogether Pete, an...

Something that occasionally ticks me off on this mostly excellent forum is the way that Multiplayer is pushed as the One True Holy Path to gaming heaven, the Way and the Light. Those of us who prefer single player mode are barely allowed to express our own opinion/preference without having it shot d...

Re: Having trouble winning

I disagree with the comments regarding the AI, which IMHO is quite capable of providing a decent challenge to your 'average' player from Level 3 upwards. And multiplayer - despite its passionate partisans - really isn't for everyone. After experimenting with around 20 MP games myself I've reverted t...
