There is no way the game can see that as anything but a stolen ID.

*sigh*
if you have the recruit screen up, then right-click a site it will jump the map to it

If you are already looking at the site and want to make SURE you recruit there, then a long right-click on the site will open the recruit screen already set to that site

During a battle you can hit the ? key to get a new keylist just for battles. I think that is what you want.

More than that. As long as he has one unit in a place, you can enter it without taking it away. You can hide a mage in his citadel. Your mage can train in his cities. Special powers can be used such as Enchanter and Necromancer can use the dead in his captured sites. You can give him equipment you find.

there is a --rename switch which will allow you to use the n key while viewing a commander.

Capital letters should work. Are you maybe using a loaded language file?

The closest thing to undo is the --autosave= switch. I use --autosave=DUH to get a game save named DUH created automatically at each end of turn.

Trade seems to be a common question. You need trade points. And it does not instantly change your income numbers. You have to do abit of math before/after a turn to see it work.

The keypresses and such have been specifically chosen because Johan wanted it to work on NetBook. So, yes

I can see the point but this is one time Im going to miss at least some of Shrapnels features. The publicist, the forums, the Chat button on the official forum since I think creating a chat room is going to be the best way to play this game.

Maybe the crossover moddists and graphic artists from the other games. Im not sure how well that does or doesnt happen here.

This forum takes some getting used to. But there are AARs for CoE3 on the old CoE2 site.

And there are some great videos being posted on the QuarterToThree.com website

That wasnt Illwinter. That was Shrapnel the previous publisher who controlled Dom3 prices.
Illwinter priced Dom1 great. And dropped the price of CoE2 to free.

Well said. Ive paid much more for games that left my hard drive in less than a month but Illwinter games last for years on my machines.

Dont these people have hobbies? Seriously, would these arguments work for you and your hobby? "Hey this is good. But if you would just hire someone to paint it nice, and hire someone to market it better, and drop your prices.. then you would sell a lot for and make lots of money." Ive heard that about my hobbies and basically reacted "I dont mind making a bit but I dont plan to turn it into a job."

That is the target number. But the post on progress log only means that Johan has compiled version 3.00 to release to the beta testers. You dont want us to rush it do you? And then it has to go to Desura

Thanks MetaToaster.
No, there is not a demo before the PRE-order. A demo isnt that much of a consideration for pre-orders since those tend to be the already convinced crowd. Plus Illwinter tends to finish the game and then create a demo. That works better. That way the demo actually can tell you how it would run on your machine.

As to the pricing comments, well everything has its pros and cons. I dont think I ever saw anyone who bought Dom3 that felt it wasnt worth the price. So far people who have CoE3 feel the same. Also the fact that the Dom3 population didnt have any "I bought it because it was cheap" people did not seem to be a loss.

New Tip: If you upgrade the Necromancer you can lose your insanity. IIRC there are two options. Lich which can raise dead safely, or Vampire who can "eat" entire villages to get boosts

That seems to be the size. Even with the music and manuals added at the latest version.

The game is very friendly to NetBooks, and flash drives, and old computers with limited memory and speed

And yes it plays the same on Linux, Windows, and Mac

We might get it on Android the same way it works on NetBooks, or various screen resolutions, or different sound supports.
