Re: Is this forum dead ?

The forum has always been a target for spams, thus the hard rules on PM posting and post approval. No particular meaning on the resignations you saw lately at Slitherine, this is the "come and go" of a company of 50 people or so, people want to try other jobs, move, etc. They were not affi...

Re: no division command?

From memory, as I did not delve into the AGE games since 3+ years, I'm pretty sure this is no, like 95% sure.

Perhaps you should fake these leaders as non leaders, i.e a quality unit with some good stats.

Re: Tooltip delay

Believe me, I'm usually trying to cope with several players approaches, thus my love for option. Sadly for the Archon engine, it is not possible to delay tooltips. Changing playing pieces would be a super major effort also. Not only in UI but how you would logically constrain this. Give me a 10-men ...

Re: Tooltip delay

Let me check with the Archon developer if there is a system setting somewhere ...

Personally tooltips are vital for me, so that they are instant are expected. I don't want to wait 2 seconds each time to verify an information. But clearly there are two school of thoughts here.

Re: Programming language question

You will never get access to the old source code unless you sign something with Slitherine, that's obvious. The old engine developed between 2004 and 2012 (the rest was mostly modding and maintenance) is their property. That it has a very low value now changes nothing. And probably, yes, there are b...

Re: Selected Option cancelled problem

As for the population, this is very intriguing. It seems they revert to infrastructure at the very beginning of ...

Re: Sell Slaves Problem

You have too few slaves, I can confirm the code don't select any region. That's WAD. Populous region (in term of citizens) and developed regions (with lot of buildings) won't relinquish slaves if only 1-2 for example.

Yes, it was a bug of sort after all ... The order where things was calculated was unfair and led to this extra expense!

This should not happen, either there is a bug, in a longstanding code, or your analysis is incorrect.

Memory starts to escape me on this one, but I believe the title was not 100% tested because the person in charge had severe IRL issues (health and day job).

This part of the code is the same across all the games, same engine. If you experience an issue with one and not another, then it has to do with the frame rate and the complexity of EAW compared to other games. The AGEOD / AGE engine is a bit low on FPS ... But is discontinued in favor of another en...

Re: Crop festival not giving culture

I can see why this confused you. The festival does not even exist for one turn, as soon it is produced, it is removed and you get as many food as you had loyalty. So in practice, the +5 food and +5 culture a turn you see in the description is almost never used, except perhaps if you are besieged the...
