Type: News

Field of Glory II has been updated to version 1.0.2! This is a significant and important update as it adds tons of improvements and changes, among all:

  • You can now review the battlefield at the end of a battle
  • Units that have evaded off map count as half their routed value added to their side’s rout %
  • Close Order Warbands no longer get +1 Cohesion Test modifier for being Heavy Foot.
  • Bows can now shoot over other units if on higher ground

You can download the patch from here

Check the full changelog below


V 1.0.2 Update List

  • You can now review the battlefield at the end of a battle, by clicking the “Review Battlefield” button in the victory/defeat screen.
  • Added End Stalled Game button to MP lobby. This can be used to claim a game as abandoned if your opponent has not moved for 7 days or more in a non-tournament game.
  • Added Download Community Scenarios button to Main Menu, with pulsing glow and text notification when new scenarios have been added since you last played the game.
  • Close Order Warbands no longer get +1 Cohesion Test modifier for being Heavy Foot. We have chosen this instead of changing the size of the units, to maintain the character of the units, but better reflect their historical performance. Further tweaks are in contemplation if needed.
  • Units that have evaded off map count as half their routed value added to their side’s rout % unless they return. Units that pursue routers off map don’t. (Note that pursuers chasing evaders do not follow them off map, unless they catch them and rout them before they leave the map).
  • Stopped Side B from randomly sending flank march in Multiplayer custom battle games.
  • Parthian army list tweaked to allow more cataphracts and infantry.
  • Added some compulsory medium foot javelinmen to Numidian lists.
  • Widened Roman autodeployments – this was previously an issue mainly with Large and Very Large battles.
  • Bows can now shoot over other units if on higher ground.
  • Camelry no longer shoot invisible arrows.
  • Indian forest tribesmen now have their own distinctive textures.
  • Fixed issue of MP games displaying script mismatch warnings when the other player has played his MP turn after playing user content scenarios with modded scripts.
  • Fixed bug that stopped modded units with crossbow from shooting.
  • Impassable river tiles now show as “Impassable to land troops” when moused over. (Previously only showed as impassable if a unit was selected).
  • Added Global Mod functionality. When global mods exist, a button appears in the bottom left corner of the main menu screen – this brings up a list box from which the mod to use can be selected. Only one global mod can be in use at a time. See http://archonwiki.slitherine.com/index.php/Modding. Currently this only allows modded unit textures and squads file, and does not allow modded or new unit models or scripts to be included, so it is of very limited use. We hope to extend its functionality in due course. In the meantime the pre-existing modding system using custom folders will be more useful in most cases as it does allow everything to be modded for that custom module.
  • Manual Clarification: Setting Rain or Snow for a scenario in the Editor gives a -50 POA modifier to all shooting except by javelins.
  • Manual clarification: A unit disordered or severely disordered by terrain loses that disorder as soon as it completely leaves the adverse terrain square. (i.e. the unit is now in an open terrain square.)

War in the Pacific AE Twitch with Giveaway

Friday, December 7, 2018

On December 7th 19141, the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service launched "Operation AI", a pre-emptive strike against the US Pacific Fleet stationing at the Hawaiian base of Pearl Harbor. On that day - "the day of infamy" on Roosevelt words - the Japanese damaged seriously all the battleships and sunk some, almost a hundred of US aircraft got destroyed and more than two thousand men were killed. The Japanese thought to have put the United States off from the chance to interfere with the establishment of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. What they did, on the contrary, was to wake a sleeping bear. 

December 7th didn't mark the supremacy of the Japanese Empire, it marked the beginning of its end.

Strategic Command WWII: World at War has been released!

Thursday, December 6, 2018

1939. The sand is slipping fast through the hourglass and the clouds of war are gathering all around the globe. While in Europe Germany is ready to finally challenge the order established with the Versailles Treaty and Italy is eager to expand its colonial dominion, in the Far East the Empire of Japan – already embroiled in a bitter war against China – has already proved to be a formidable adversary and soon it will have to face the rising American hostility.

Can Germany, Italy and Japan triumph and construct their new world order, or will triumph turn to disaster as the rest of the world mobilizes to meet force with force?
