Re: The Recipe Thread

Hi Philippe, sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I missed this reply. Please post the recipe if you can. 'Soufflet au Fromage' sounds interesting and something I have never tried. I will certainly give it a go if you share the recipe and drink a glass of wine with a toast to your mum. UK food has...

Re: The Recipe Thread

Philippe, being French I assume you can improve some part of this recipe? Or do you accept that English cuisine has improved since the 70's? (although I suppose this is really in the main a French recipe). One attempts to keep the thread alive on occasion. Any new recipes that anyone would like to s...

Re: How old are you guys ?

29... I have a feeling I'm always into older people's hobbies. No matter whether I'm playing wargames, collecting militaria, building models or reading, I've never stopped feeling like I felt when I was a kid and was playing Aces over Europe and Total Annihilation with my father and his friends :md...

Many good things arrive in spring. Maybe it's time to resuscitate the recipe thread. I miss all the weird off topic stuff that we used to post.

Re: Mais ou sont les neiges d'antan?

That's sweet to be remembered Taillebois. All fine here. As Philippe mentioned it's nice to do some work on the new game but a tester I am not. Testing scenarios can become a pain. But the new game looks great and it's fun to make some texts and things for it. We all miss our Queen. I still have a c...

Re: Missing text

I'm playing the main campaign as Parliament but I can see STC_NAM_RECRUITMENTCENTER rather than the text 'Recruitment Center' when I click on London. I happened to notice STC_NAM_REQUISITIONOFFICE3 was also missing at the start of the Naseby scenario. I just added both of these to the appropriate pl...

Re: New patch ?

It is, Mr Hobbes. But until they sort out the annoying WS problem it is basically unplayable as the Royalist as this faction can not capture WS from battles and is severely limited elsewhere how it might get said supply. It seems a shame if the game is pretty close to perfect but there is one outst...

Re: New patch ?

Also see my post earlier. It seems very odd to me that after so much time there are still missing strings in this game. It doesn't imbue confidence in a game when problems that should be so easy to fix go unnoticed. But the game looks good. I look forward to playing it.

Cheers,

Hi folks, I noticed in the Nasby campaign that London has two sets of missing strings: STC_NAM_RECRUITMENTCENTER and STC_NAM_REQUISITIONOFFICE3. In the other scenarios only STC_NAM_RECRUITMENTCENTER is missing, but the other scenarios use STC_NAM_REQUISITIONOFFICE or STC_NAM_REQUISITIONOFFICE2. So t...

Inspection Panel Values

Hi folks, I'm just getting back into AGEOD games after some time away. Can anyone remind me about the meaning of a few values shown in the inspection panel? For a particular leader I can see Protection 4/0, Victory pts. 0/10 and Morale 0/3. Why are there two values for these attributes?

Thanks,

Re: Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and what are you doing these days thread!

Hi Philippe, Happy New year to you and yours. I've decided to be a more pro-active lurker as the new game engine is coming soon. Very excited to see that! I'm playing Order of Battle as it's the perfect Christmas game for a fried brain.

Re: Hobbes v Athena: In Blood and Fire

It seems a great shame that every time the forums are changed things get messed up with old posts. The first change led to duplicate images and the next - only the duplicates remain! :crying:

P.S. the opposite to this sort of pricing is War in the Pacific - Admiral's Edition. £64. To me it's a wonderful but unplayable game due to the time required. I would be long dead before I completed a game but I would be very happy to pay £10 for it just to possess it and maybe play a small scenario.

My desktop at the moment. I've bought most of these games in the past few months during -75% offers or better. Most I will probably never play (and wouldn't have bought at full price). I don't have enough years left to play them all. All look pretty good though. If you get a game for £2 - £5 I think...

I was amazed by this deal. I'm on a break from AGEOD games at the moment having played them for 10 years but I couldn't resist this offer as a way of trying a few that I otherwise wouldn't have bought. I'm worried about how AGEOD and partners will benefit from this though. First game I looked at is ...

Wow. It's very heartening to see you have played it 30 times Shadow! I designed the scenario but it is very rare to get any feedback. I assumed not many people would have played it. I had no idea somebody would have played it so much!

I think the free version of Neuroshima is good. Depends how much you play it - there are some very interesting factions to be bought in the full game. I bought all as they are only about 60p each. Armies such as Neojungle and Dancer certainly add a lot of interest to the game.
