Re: What is the ground scale?

I'm digging this up because I found it by searching. I am actually kind of wondering what the scale was supposed to be. By my best guess 100x100 meter squares and full rounds being maybe 5 minutes or so work pretty well. The larger cavalry formations are about 300 horses, so they take space, as do v...

Skirmish with Pike and Shot army list

There seem to be two types of campaigns in the complete game, and with that two kinds of army lists. Half of them can be used in historical campaigns and in skirmish mode, the other half can be used in campaign more. Among these is the "all armies" Pike and Shot list. I'd like to be able to use this...

Re: Pausing and Exiting

Yes, the single player pauses when the menu is opened. The same goes for the tech tree. From that menu you can save and resign/quit, and reload the game later. (You will lose control groups, unless that has been patched by now, but everything else should carry over.) The game also autosaves every 5 ...

Re: Hotkeys

Good news, looks like I was wrong! The hotkeys for 9 control groups can be set under hotkeys -> common. So all you should need to do is remap them to your 1-9 keys.

Re: Hotkeys

EDIT: See post below, that should invalidate this one. Hi! I cant put some letters on my keyboard as a hotkey, without them I am unable to play the game competitively! Is there some way you could fix that. I am used to them from AoE. I am talking about letters such as +ěščřžýáí which normally combi...

Re: Other mechanics and tools

I put a couple of additional publications talking about combat tactics and graphics, but now I can not find them, is this because? http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=482&t=83028&p=709344#p709344 http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=482&t=83026&p=709341#p709341 You can search...

Re: Basic tactics apply?

The option is already there. You can play 8 players 8 teams. You just need to keep score yourself if you want to use it for some sort of ranking. And let's be honest, free for all matches aren't very suited for doing rankings. They're more fun to just play... I didn't see the option "time limit". A...

Re: Basic tactics apply?

I understand quick plays are necessary and wished sometimes... so does long and anarchy games! So why not give this option to the old school players? The option is already there. You can play 8 players 8 teams. You just need to keep score yourself if you want to use it for some sort of ranking. And...

Re: Basic tactics apply?

Maybe this is a reflex of the younger generations, who can't read more than a twitter or bear more than 30 minutes in the same match. Or maybe it's casual oldtimers like myself who know the base building game and who like the base building game but who don't want to play it for an hour every time b...

Re: Basic tactics apply?

Hi, (1) I would like to know if basic tactics such as "use knights against hand-arm units", or "skirmishers against knights" apply, like in the AoE. Those are probably not the matchups I'd have used as examples, (aoe 2 skirmishers are anti-archer units and generally get shredded by heavy cavalry) b...

Re: Graphics

I had my doubts about the look before I was let into the beta. (A beta about which I can now freely talk, thanks developers!) In fact it was one of my main concerns. Like you guys I was a big, big fan of the isometric look of Age of Empires 1 and 2. It's just so clear and unobstructed, yet feels ali...
