    Default FATW Dominion of Men Version 3.4 is almost ready for release

    Just a quite news item to let anyone stopping by here that the next (and almost certainly final) version of the mod is just about ready for release. It is mostly bug fixes and balance but there are also one or two new surprises that I've found time to implement as well. Keep an eye out for the release post soon!

    If this is to be our end, then I would have them make such an end as to be worthy of remembrance

    I have a question: is there a way to fight trolls on the battlefield without experiencing game malfunction?

    For a quick summary of that thread, try the following:

    We recommend running the mod in 16 bit graphics mode, which resolves this issue for some people. If that doesn't work, try the following: in descr_model_battle.txt (found in bi/fatw/data), find the entry for 4a_orc_troll and 4a_orc_ologhai. In the model_sprite line, change 60.0 to 0.1 for both entries. As always, make a backup of the file before modifying it.

    How do I run the mod in 16 bit graphics mode?

    Just change it in the graphics settings menu.

    @NOOO : If the option is not coming up in-game you can directly edit your preferences document.

    @webba84 : Are we expecting the Troll issue to no longer be a thing after the 3.4 release?

    @Wambat, Unfortunately it is not possible to fix it completely unless we change the unit type to infantry, which means they won't be able to bash down gates, and will use ladders, and a host of other unwanted effects.

    If you use the sprite fix, however, it almost completely removes the chances of this occurring, which is going to be about the best we can manage.

    We have managed to fix every other known bug in 3.3 though.

    So, considering this may be the one problem that will never go away, how about we make a sticky for how to address this problem to make it easy for folks to find going forward?

    We've added a section in one of the in-game buildings that describes the process as above, FYI. For those who read in-game building descriptions

    A sticky would probably be a good idea too.

    Aradan wasn't able to get the rebellion mechanic quite finished before he ran out of spare time, so we're unfortunately back in the position of having to decide to release without it or wait and hope he becomes available again soon.

    A bit of a bummer.

    I feel the wait is worth it; provided there is actual hope Aradan will be able finnish that work.

    I also think it's worth the wait.

    I'm anxious for it. I wish to do a series on my channel with it.
