Re: Indians are tough?

I think the Nabataeans are worthless without the right terrain. I have a map with a nice, rough hill against Romans right now. It's going pretty well I think, but if it was just a flat plain then I would be absolutely screwed. There's no way to pump enough arrows into a line of Roman HF before they ...

Re: Beta System Tray Tool

Ah - how many of you are using Steam versions of the game? It uses the registry to find the game. I was basing it on the older TrayTool which was pre-Steam. Hmmm. Sometimes it's obvious! I will have to work out how to find or validate Steam versions. Cheers Pip I tried deleting the TrayTool folder,...

Re: Small suggestions thread

I would like an option to turn off the flags!

Obviously, the flags give important information. However, they're kind of ugly and block our view of the battle. I'd like a hotkey to switch them on and off.

Re: Beta System Tray Tool

Unfortunately, I cannot get this to work. It appears to be working, as I can right-click and access the "help, about, exit" options, but when I left-click nothing happens. It does not alert me when games are ready.

Obviously, the only solution is to quickly roll out the little systray app that alerts players when a turn is ready.

Re: FOG1 Old-Timers?

I think most FOG players will return. FOG 2 is a great sequel, so eventually everyone will want to give it a go if they enjoyed the original.

Missing multiplayer mode

How come there's no option to have the opponent decide his side? When you issue a challenge, you have to pick your own army and the opponent's army (or otherwise set them to random). If memory serves, in the original FOG there was a game mode where your opponent was allowed to pick whatever army he ...

Re: Slingers vs Javelinmen

Why do archers outrange slingers in this game, considering that Xenophon says slingers outranged archers and could effectively keep them at bay? Which archers (using which bows) Is the question though... Greek, Persian , Cretan? Pretty interesting article on somewhat recent finds in Britain, link b...

Re: Would you be a more active player with a LIVE MP mode ?

I don't like having to load up the game just to check if there's something waiting. So, you don't get email notification? I don't. I actually consider that a blessing, because I'd hate to just get a constant stream of emails that I have to look for and then delete. The systray app from the original...

Imagine if they added the Ancient China expansion. All the Rome and China fanboys throwing their armies against each other, arguing about whether Rome or Han China would be victorious.

Re: Would you be a more active player with a LIVE MP mode ?

I personally wouldn't use it very much. The thing that would have the greatest effect on me is the systray app that tells you when a turn is ready. I don't like having to load up the game just to check if there's something waiting.

Re: What is your favorite close combat weapon?

Offensive Spear, obviously. Nothing can resist a 5th century hoplite charge. yeah, except for Peltasts killing them one by one... as happened to Spartans few times.. Propaganda spread by jealous Boeotians. Now then, why aren't the heavy weapons winning? They look cool and I'm pretty sure they give ...
