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
Ian

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...

Its really good news that this title is approaching release. How about a discount on the download only version for owners of "Pike & Shot Campaigns" ?

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 ...

Also taken the plunge and bought today. Knew from working on the beta that it was going to be good and not disappointed. Well done guys. Really generous discounts too for existing pike and shot users. Guess those of us in the modding business owe you some extra work on the game to say thank you. All...

Pike & Shot Campaigns manual

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

Re: Pike and Shot: Campaigns announced!

Hi Jomni I have been involved in the beta testing for this and you should have no worries here. The system is battle centred and would work very well for your Japanese Mod. By the way speaking of this did you know that Samuel Hawley's book "The Imjin War" (covering the conflict from the Korean persp...

"MAPVIEW.TXT" file optimised for plotting the relative posit

Hi Guys The first mod made available in the forum for Pike & Shot was Adebar's "Improved Zoom Mod" which set out how you can make customised versions of the "MAPVIEW.TXT" file. In order to get a closer look at the battlefield, and supplied an example. For gaming purposes there are limits to how much...

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

Quick bit of feedback just started a skirmish game and when choosing my forces found that the wide range of troops to choose from meant that the total points remaining as I spend them on buying troops was obscured. Really nice work though :D :D :D :D

I think somebody even did some 30 years war scenarios for it and there were some good ones done for WW1 in the Middle East and East Africa as will when I switched to XP with a new PC this had the wrong graphics card to run it even with DOSBOX. There was also a "Battles Of Napoleon" game that never g...
