He gives extra supplies. From his cornucopia. I'll check out if there is another effect, I do not recall off hand.

Edit: There is no effect but the supplies, the description is just fluff.

I did some testing on this as well, and concur that there is no extra effect.

The fertility lords text description is VERY confusing and the reference that implies that he aids growth should be removed.

No, it should NOT be removed - it should be implemented! That would be awesome, and I'd probably pick him in that case.

Hmm, doesn't look that way on mine (Win XP Pro). What OS are you using?
...

Win98SE, but I figured this one out. I had the "filter quality" video preference set to "None", in an attempt to improve frame-rate. It actually has no effect on my frame-rate, and when I turn up the filter quality, the wobbly swords smooth out nicely.

I had this message:

"A plague has struck. Empty cabins and rotting corpses litter the landscape."

Ironically, there were no unburied corpses in the province after getting that message. I would expect a whole bunch of them, so I suspect this is a bug.

in doms I the message was pretty generic : you could have this message in Ermor-levelled provinces which had no pop to begin with for example.

Default Re: Dominions II Bug Thread

when I use this command line

"C:\Program Files\dominions2demo\dom2demo.exe" -fps 100

I have the program run in windowed mode, with a small window opening labelled 'dominions 2 performance test' and then : loadmalloc : cant open /maps/julmap.tga

How to let the program use the -fps option?

Try --fps 100
That works for me...well...it lets me hit an astounding max of 52 on very low detail.

I had an "Eyes of the Lord" priest and my 4-holy unarmored prophet in a battle against a small Abyssian army. Both were in the very back, behind 50 archers and 20 hoplites. Each had orders to "Cast spells" (I think). But, after casting a few spells like bless and fanatacism, they rushed halfway across the field to attack the routing Abyssians, got mixed up in the front lines, and were slaughtered by my archers. They were my only 2 losses.

I think unarmored mages and priests should never rush into melee, under any condition, unless you specifically order them to! If the spell AI can't find a good spell to cast, just have them sit there, not attack.

Perhaps they went berserk, commanders and spellcasters in particular should not behave in the way you descibe, unless under order to do so. Did your pretender have nature 4+, and the abysians any missile troops?
