Re: Some tips for players who are new to Bronze

I thought I would post a few things that have helped me along so far. Even though all races play differently I play the Sumerians differently than what Alex recmomends. I use armies as much as I can...

Re: Year deduction when losing

I am sure you are correct in that assumption.

Now I have almost completed all the campaigns in the full game all three time zones. Now I have lost a lot of maps up to 10 times and have not reached...

Good to see someone from the Combat Mission series. I used to play the first three of their titles a lot, and from memory your signature used to appear a lot in the old days. I do not visit their...

Re: Any play guides

Thanks for the guide you posted after this post, and I am glad they are posting an official one.

I must admit I like to read about what I am going to try first. My gaming time is very limited so I...

Any play guides

I have downloaded the demo, but have no idea how to play this one.

Is there a basic guide or tutorial that I have missed?

Re: This game is a joke

I think if you play the game for what it is intended it works well.
The abstraction is there but as stated you can finish a game in one setting, which is very good.

For me this game is very good...

Re: Welcome Star Legacy Development Group!

Thanks for the link, to that site.

I like the idea of a "scrollable & zoomable" interface. For some reason (apart from activation to get patches) I could not get into "Sins of a Solar Empire" but...

Re: Welcome Star Legacy Development Group!

Good to see another title in the works.

How about throwing us a few bones to mill over.

Has this one anything to do with the space title hinted at in the War Plan Pacific beta forum?

Cheers...

Re: Vote for WPP

I placed my vote. I noticed it looked like you could vote in either of two columns, I chose the left one and it looks like they both updated. Would have been nice for some english text.

Re: War Plan Pacific Promo Video

Definately shows more action than the Hearts of Iron 3 vidoes.

Re: AI is still too easy to beat.

I have yet to try the new patch, as I have turned on my gaming PC for a week now. Work seems to be getting in the way.

But as of the last patch I thought the AI fairly good, a few exploits that...

Re: What is going on?

Hi Von_Altair

It is shame you are experiencing problems. As far as I can tell most of us are running problem free.

For the games intended market I think the AI is fine and every game has a few...

Re: WPP: AI, does it work?

I think the AI is well balanced for the game type it is.

No glaring problems nor really hard. This meant to be a quick play title and it fits the bill very well.

A good small game with no real...

Re: John Hawkins on Three Moves Ahead this week

A nice interview, and his next project sounds good as well. I hope he develops it through here as well.

Anyone using 1680 x 1050 wide screen

Re: Poll : how long are your WPP games ?

I have never been out to 6 hours yet, about 4 hours for the longest game. Shorter for the Japanese as well.

Also I normally play over a few sessions. If I like the game I am playing I tend to drag...

Re: What's the verdict on this game's AI?

I think the AI is good for it's purpose. Not super hard but not dead easy. If anything a bit on the easy side for an experienced player, but still good enough.

I am sure it will be tweaked by the...
