Is anyone else having a error in Rome:Total War where once you start it up it says "Application Error:Failed to find steam"? If so do you know how to fix it?
Do you guys have any idea whether or not "Keyget" is a trust-worthy site or not?
I was just doing the historical match in Third Age Total War where its the Men, Elves and Dwarfs vs the Orcs and you control the dwarfs. After most of the Dales got wiped out/ran away my amazing line of dwarfs (which were so amazing that sometimes they would charge at 200 enemies and even before attacking the enemies would route) were helpless as they got completely surrounded by over 1000 on all sides. Before being completely wiped out though they still managed to kill hundreds being completely outnumbered, though I had one dwarf left after everyone got killed right in the middle of all the Orcs.
By himself he slaughtered Orc after Orc killing around hundred on his own completely surrounded, because the elves were very far away not helping because they suck, there were still hundreds of orcs surrounding him and because there were tons of Orc archers around there as well they decided to fire at him. So as this Dwarf was right in the middle fighting by him self, hundreds of flaming arrows from the Orcs from all sides fired at him, with only a couple hitting him and the rest hitting the Orcs, volley after volley after volley of fire arrows were fired at him to try to kill with with 1 or 2 arrows hitting him and him brushing it off just to slaughter another 10 Orcs while the rest of the arrows that didn't hit him either completely missed or hit tons of Orcs.
Though his luck soon ran out when finally after a long while of fighting a couple of fire arrows hit him good and he burnt to death, though he alone caused the death of hundreds of Orcs. R.I.P my friend.
And then after they went for the elves and the elves just had to keep fighting them and firing arrows and it would of been an easy win but nooooo it became a draw.....
The moral of the story is fuck Elves, seriously they suck.
Oh god, just realised that my 5 star general in control of my gigantic, elite army has only 2 loyalty! How can it be so low? He's my adopted son and comptroller (FotS).
Also what battle formations do people use for single-player FotS? I use a V shaped formation:
The wings can fold in or out depending on how the enemy approaches you and the flanking untis can deal with their cavalry or sweep around and take out any artillery. Anything that enters the 'V' is almost certain to rout before it reaches your artillery and if it doesn't the elite units are there to counter-charge.
I'm used to the one of the preset formations out of Empire that sets 3 units in front, 2 in back. Altered it a bit after having cavalry issues.
I normally fight without dedicated reserves, every unit is engaged on the front line from the beginning. Thinking about it this seems a little stupid now, perhaps if I reduce the length of each wing I can use the extra units as support.
Yeah reserves are pretty useful. Allows you to setup a second line if the first line is rushed in close combat.
Wait, so Fall of the Samurai contains all of Shogun 2 ?
Also, I HAVE to make my units veterency the highest before I even think about moving the stack, its just a weird habbit I have...
Eurgh, I've declared my own republic in FotS in hopes of a challenge, I'm on turn 160ish, control almost half of Japan with a treasury of 100k and an income each turn of 25k+. I haven't had a battle where the balance bar thing wasn't 95%+ in my favour for ages. Normal difficulty sucks.
I dont know just felt like it
also is Shogun 2 the only Total war game that has the toggle UI key in it? its so useful I love it!
If it's an Imperial army then the front lines main objective is to hold and engage their line as they exchange fire. Then I drop a bombardment in the center of their line.
What are you guys running Total War Shogun 2 at? Even with a AMD 955 X4 3.7 GhZ processor, 4 gigs of RAM, Windows 7 64 bit, and a 6970 2 GB I'm having problems especially when zooming in on units.
Are you on dx11 or dx10
Should i buy Shogun 2 TW?
Its fun, I myself prefer FOTS considering I played more Empire/Napoleon then Medieval and Rome
Do you have to start a new campaign if you want to use the Radious AI mods?
Tried FotS and I like it, a lot. The way they streamlined it a bit, a worldmap that doesn't overwhelm me, awesome.
Do you guys have any idea whether or not FOTS is at odds for going on sale this summer or not?
Poor college student blah blah blah and all that.
Darn, I just noticed I never bought Medieval 2 Kingdoms. What a shame. Is it necessary to play Third Age out of curiosity?
Fuck you pope. I fucking crusade against Tunis for you and you get to keep it? That's fucking war, I hope the papal states have competent commanders, oh wait! I killed most of them already! I've taken Florence you fat Catholic bastard, and Rome is next. I've assassinated three of your predecessors and you're next.
That's what I think of your prayers before battle!
I will destroy you pope, I shall ride your corpse to heaven and kill God too! I shall then reform from the ashes a new world! A world for true English!
I have existed from the morning of the world and I shall exist until the last star falls from the night. Although I have taken the form of Symond King of England, I am all men as I am no man and therefore I am a God!
Whoa, I totally forgot I had Medieval II: Total War, installing now.
