Re: Suggestion - UI Improvement

Uh oh. No tooltips to tell you what buttons and other things are and do? That is a necessary feature that EVERY game should have. I am considering purchasing this game, based on all the positive comments so far. But, no tooltips is a pretty big exclusion that is standard in games nowadays. An extens...

Re: Unit facing

What about the original poster's request of changing the color of the "unit facing indicator"?

I also have a hard time seeing the light grey arrow.

Re: Beta Test

In my experience, delays like this, and the silence from the developers and publishers rarely bodes well for any game.

I sure hope I am wrong, because like you all, I can't wait for this game to come out. But, I fear it will turn out to be a poorly designed game.

I hope I'm wrong.

I hope.

Re: Indication of campaign scenarios you have won

Hahaha! Me too! Maybe I will do just that.

But still, the game calls them campaigns. It should track your campaign progress by indicating what missions you have won.

Indication of campaign scenarios you have won

One thing I REALLY wish this game system showed is what scenarios you have won. As it is, I just have to remember that I won the first mission, third mission, etc. There really needs to be an indicator on each mission screen that shows if you have won it or not. And as a bonus, it would be excellent...

Re: Cannot tell what units have action points left

Thank you for the replies, Richard. The unit list is cool, but it requires a separate screen to see. I still would like to see this displayed somehow on the main screen, to avoid having to jump between the unit list and battle map, back and forth to check all units. I will give the unit list mechani...

Cannot tell what units have action points left

Unless I am missing something, there is no way to see at a glance what units still have enough action points left to take an action. This makes it very difficult to see who can still move/attack. I basically have to try to give each unit an order to see if it can do it. I know I can use the next/pre...

Mini map is way, way, way too small

Great game so far, but oh my gosh, who thought this mini map was useful as a postage stamp size?

Please make the mini-map bigger. Better yet, give us the option to select from a few sizes, to please everyone.

Re: What exactly can be modded ?

One square per turn for formed infantry and two for cavalry sounds fairly close to right, by the way. I agree. I'm not sure I understand the philosophy of making the movement and shooting less than realistic, for a wargame. But, I have not played yet. It may be just right as is. I can't wait to get...

Re: What exactly can be modded ?

What determines long range for the half strength shooting penalty? I don't own the game yet, but will get it after work. How does the game show you so you know that you are shooting at long range vs. normal range?

Re: pre-sale & release

Please let us know how it is! I have to wait eight hours until I get off work before I can get home and buy the game. So, I will be interested in reading first impressions all day.

Re: Expansion campaigns?

Thank you for the clarification. Perhaps you should update the game description for the PC, so it does not say expansion, but says it includes all three campaigns.

Onwards to Friday!

Re: Expansion campaigns?

Thank you, sir! Excellent news. Then, why does the game description say (expansion) in parentheses like that, next to the English Civil War and Italian Wars campaigns? That is very misleading, in my opinion. Am I the only one who thinks when it says expansion, it means an extra purchase? That is wha...

Expansion campaigns?

How exactly is this game going to be released? Does the base game just come with a single 10 mission campaign? Are the other two campaigns, English Civil War and Italian Wars, separate expansions that cost extra? If so, why is this? BA 2 released with four campaigns in the base game. This game just ...

Release date?

I apologize if this has been asked and answered already. I did not see any postings in the forum.

I want to buy into the early access, because I love the original BA. However, I don't want to if the game is still a long way from final.

Please, is there an estimated release date?

Thank you!

Thanks Iain. I look forward to checking it out in February. 4.5 Gb is not so big anymore. Heck, I download 10+ GB games from Steam all the time.

Thanks reapagan. The news page for this game that you can click on from Slitherine's home page says the PC version is available now. But, apparently it is not for a while yet. If the PC version is not available, they should fix this announcement. MatrixGames show the PC release as February 2013. I w...

So, if it is available, how come we cannot purchase it? I don't see it on MatrixGames website either. What is going on? Is it released or not?
