    Just make a copy/backup of the original file.



    @Bran Mac Born
    I really enjoy the increased difficulty in Shogun 2 and so far didn't encounter any bugs.

    Just now I started a FotS game and seem to have encountered 2 problems (if someone could verify)
    1) I started a game as Choshu and according to the unit banner the Kihetai units have 121 melee defence
    2) So far I played 3 battles and every time enemy Line/Levy Infantry fires a few salves and charges into melee combat

    hey, i'm about to download your submod, but i have one question. when talking about longer battles you mentioned more armor for units. wouldn't that make missile weapons useless?

    Hi Bran,

    I did a quick campaign in hard / hard (not patient enough to do a very hard).
    The clans fight a lot, a few local powers emerge, it looks good.
    In combat, the formation are nice, cavalry tend to flank a lot, howeverwhen only a few single units of cavalry they charge in the front line of my yari instead of flanking.
    I think the morale plummets a bit quickly to my taste, i don't remember it was so fast in DMS vanilla. In 2 minutes, the full enemy army (yari samurai and yari ashigaru) are routing.

    Maybe make it last a bit more if you can.

    thanks for the tweaks !

    Cheers

    Fred
