  1. Sticky: Re: A basic tactical manual for 1648 v.2 pike and shot warfare

    Pistols were fired at around 50m, often less (maximum range was longer, about 100-130m). Cruso is not referring to muskets here. The range of cannon was usually stated in paces and that was not a...

    Re: 1648: The Two Towers

    We should perhaps take a look at those units then. Albanians and Greeks probably had similar dress.

    By the way, while checking again for images on the web, I think I made something of a discovery....

    Re: 1648: The Two Towers

    Does With Fire and Sword have Ottoman or Croatian units? I doubt it would have Greek and Albanian units, though. One such unit for example, would be light mercenary cavalry from the Balkans (mostly...
  4. Re: Agonizing Loading Screen Crashes

    The mod should be inside the mods folder.

    Here is the descr_transition_screen file: 315451.

    It should be placed in the data folder. Check how many quotes you have in the quotes file in...
  5. Re: Agonizing Loading Screen Crashes

    Using the descr_transition_screen file resulted in two loading screen crashes in three evenings of playing a campaign. This is about normal for me except in the first few turns of a campaign, when...

    If it helps, I do not have descr_transition_screen in my data folder and have not replaced the quotes with the new file. I have no more loading screen crashes than in Stainless Steel or other mods. I...

    Re: 1648: The Two Towers

    The mod has been in hiatus and will remain so until a modeller offers to make our units. There was also an issue with the map, that could conceivably be resolved. But the mod would not be any fun...
  8. Re: Agonizing Loading Screen Crashes

    I totally sympathise with you and wish there was a solution. Since not all players are plagued by such crashes, one has to conclude that part of the problem is something specific to players' setups,...
  9. Re: Agonizing Loading Screen Crashes

    Crashes are understandably annoying especially after finishing a battle. We had pondered about this problem before and could not find a cause. It is intermittent (rare in my own experience) and not...
  10. Re: I have too manny florins.

    The AI factions get more money than the human player. Just because other factions look rich in your byzantine campaign does not mean that they will have the same kind of money under human player...

    Re: Ottomans

    Only the Deliler model is made specifically for our mod. The decision was also made to keep just some cavalry units for the Ottomans, as raiders, raiding being the main activity of the Ottomans on...
  13. Re: I have too manny florins.

    The Byzantines start in the early campaign as the strongest faction (someone had to be that faction) and it is easy for the human player to keep them that way. England is an easy faction to play...
  14. Re: I have too manny florins.

    England is not a typical faction. It has no borders. Whoever is worried about having too much money can pick a weak faction. It would be a paradox to have too much money with a weak faction but if...

    Interesting suggestions from Marius and Flavius. Most of the European music in SS6.4 tends to be Irish, and the Irish are not even a playable faction. It would be nice if someone uploaded some...

    Do you mean musketeers can cause more damage than artillery? It is possible. The problem is balance. Since the AI cannot use artillery effectively, making it more damaging would shift the balance in...

    Re: Unit Sizes

  22. Re: Forts?? What do you do with them?

    Though it is true this is a bit of an exploit, it does actually result in proper sieges, including fighting on the walls, as opposed to in the central plaza. Also, the stone forts are immersive and...
  23. Re: How do you win an offensive siege against anything other than militia?

    If a high dread general is close to some enemy units, they will rout more easily. So distance has some kind of an effect. The question is if command is what is stopping units from wavering rather...

    Regarding artillery, at this period, field cannon were fired on the battlefield at their point blank range.

    I understand the consensus here was that command affects only autoresolving. Better morale can be explained by higher chivalry. It is difficult to test effects of command on morale since generals are...
  27. Re: War Wagons! ... overpowered?

    You are right about the war wagons. They are OP but expensive to carry around. The only option is to keep them in a fort near the couple of cities that get them, so their use is limited. We may do...
