Maybe I am missing something. Is there anyway to turn on the dice roll without rolling dice yourself? Its hard to keep up with what I rolled and there is no virtual dice on the screen.

There is an option for this in Game Preferences.

Thanks! I will have another look when I get home from work. Most likely didn't notice it in my hurry to play.

You will then have the dice pop up on your unit when you attack.
Speaking of dice, what is the option to "turn dice camera on/off" icon on the right in game meant to do? When i have this icon ticked each time i attack i have a window popup in the middle of the screen with a slider to change sensitivity and options to move the camera, i would upload a screenshot but i am not sure how to on here.

gives you option to physically roll your own (if you have a webcam to see it). Doc in manual and I read it somewhere on forum.

Yes, the Dice Camera lets you position a web camera over a spot on your desk, roll your own dice, and import the results into the game. It works best with a bowl in which to roll the dice and with white dice with black pips. If you webcam has fancy features like autofocus or eye tracking, you should turn those off. We've gotten very good results with very cheap webcams (I just tested a camera I purchased on Amazon for $3.19.) I personally find playing with the Dice Camera to be a blast: shaking the dice and knowing that I need a 9 or higher to hit brings a lot of the excitement of the boardgame into the computer game for me.

My 7 year old Sam is a wargaming kid, and we were just talking about getting real dice as we agree it will be a blast. By the way, he loves the game, too.

That's great to hear. My eleven-year-old twins were two of my best beta testers -- they did crazy things with the interface that no adult would ever dream of trying to do :-)

Thanks for the info, i must get round to reading these manuals everybody keeps talking about, i thought my game was playing up, lol.
Cool idea with the camera by the way though i would haveto make sure that the cam did not automatically activate my mic on the off chance my opponent was easily offended.
Enjoyable game so far, well done chaps.

The Dice Camera is only for games against the AI. We don't really have a good way to stream the images between multiplayer opponents or (more importantly?) to prevent cheating.
