I feel there should be a better way to determine prestige cost besides using a tool tip since it's too easy to accidentally select the upgrade or whatever when you just want to know the cost.


Did not understand this one. Prestige cost of what are you trying to determine?


Yes, you have to use the tool tip to get the prestige cost and when you press the button you can accidentally select it when you just want to get the cost. I don't know how to explain it any better. Is there a way to see the tool tip without risking selecting the button?

Yes that's what I thought too! But to me it's worth every penny!! If you hit buy it always asks you if your sure you want to buy. I can understand the disappointment in the price. But I will be playing this game for the next ten years on some form of the iPad . It's worth it to me.

Oh. I thought there was an option for the give me everything from the beginning at 59.99. It's actually 79.99 because you have to buy the app at 19.99 first.

Thanks for the answers.


Yeah, that's pretty misleading. I though the whole shebang was for 59.99 too, then got whacked at 79.99. Slitherine/Matrix/Apple need to make it more clear what the cost for the full package is.





Yeah, it was foolish of me to assume that "everything" meant... everything.

Especially since I've purchased enough iOS apps that I should have recognized the borderline bait and switch that is standard marketing procedure on that platform. Why can't they just let us buy the whole shebang up front without going through this charade?

But seriously, glad you are enjoying the game, rogo. I played it a lot on the PC, including some of the GCs, which I found more challenging than the base game. PC seems to work very well on the iPad... which my wife purchased for me so I would spend more time with her and less time on the PC playing wargames! Poor misguided dear...

How can I get the sound effects to play as normal but without the backround music? The manual has the instructions for the PC version which has separate control buttons for each but in the Ipad version the settings do not have controls for either and all I can do is turn the volume down to eliminate both the sounds and the music. I want the sounds, just not the music.

I am NOT member of s/m or judged worthy as a beta tester but you will have to wait for a patch probably after January would be my best guess.

I just assumed that since the in app purchase was $59.99 you actually had to have the app first

Just finished Norway on field marshal. It plays and feels just like the same game on my laptop (ok had to play it two times to get a DV). I really want to start the 1939 but have to win first on DV to get to Rommel mode. This is the best game on any tablet. I wonder if mr. Iain know the standards he now has to keep!

Yes this is the only way you can do it and we had assumed people knew that and to be honest I don't see how we could explain the app store mechanics in a PR without it looking very odd.

Please please please give a way to either turn the music off, or preferably adjust it independently of the game sounds. Great port, except for that.

Edit: on the Slitherine forums, there is a promise of a fix for this in the first patch, sometime after the holidays.

Yes we are working on a patch and this will be in it. We just didn't have time to get all the little extras done we wanted for the initial release. We really wanted to have the game in your hands before the holidays (So we could quiet Rogo! :) so had to postpone some of these extra UI issues to the first patch.

That functionality is not available yet, we put cross-platform saving on the wishlist as people seems to ask for it.

Thanks lord. And thank you for getting this game out before Xmas . I am simply memorized by this game on the iPad . There simply isn't any game that could even possibly touch this as a wargame on the iPad . I do hope you continue to support this game as I feel it's only a couple of patches away from being the equal to the PC version. Here is what I'd like to see sometime this next year.

1. Music/sound volume controls.
2. Advanced options. (This is simply a must)
3. Like in BA user scenarios (I and many others would pay for this)
4. Scenario editor (it can be done the real question is how far are you willing to go with this game)
5. When you release soviet corps please make sure you release the iPad version at the same time.
6. I just gave you $80 (along with many others). So please consider above options. Remember you are getting many new people who never ever had heard of slitherine...this is your time to shine.

1. Music/sound volume controls.
>>> Will be in next update after X-mas.

2. Advanced options. (This is simply a must)
>>> Yes, is definitely the plan.

3. Like in BA user scenarios (I and many others would pay for this)
>>> We are looking into this what is possible with Apple.

4. Scenario editor (it can be done the real question is how far are you willing to go with this game)
>>> Tricky one, but is under debate.

5. When you release soviet corps please make sure you release the iPad version at the same time.
>>> Absolutely, or in the worst case very close together.

Also when people hit the dev web page it takes you to slitherine and not matrix. I mean no disrespect and I apologize if I come off this way...but to me (just my very own opinion here) that matrix site seems more polished and more detailed than the mother site. Are you guys looking into an overhaul? Please don't take it personally as I do enjoy your site. One thing that stands out from matrix is the tweets section. Wish matrix had it.

Great port of the PC game, love what I see so far, but do agree, the music needs a off switch please. Being a portable version now - it must go bye-bye.
Keep up the great work and thank you for giving us this.

Thanks for feedback, that music switch is our top priority at the moment. :)

is there a movement table which lists how much it costs for certain types of units to enter certain terrian (like tanks entering a forest, or track / half tracked movements in rough or mountains, etc)? That would be much appreciated.

...grenadiers are now allowed to use air transport and take there own vehicles with them and then embark on another airfield along with their vehicles.Is this a bug are has this always been this way? Just checked the PC version on my laptop and when I use air transport with grenadiers have to abandon truck first so I think this might be a bug. In all my years of playing I have never used air transports to ferry my grenadiers from filed to field never really had a reason to thought I would give it a try on the iPad tho!

Another thing I noticed which might be confusing to new players is that infantry and artillery transports are not shown in the unit info screen like they are in the computer version of the same game. You only know if a unit has a transport once you select it to see how far it can go. Damn wish I was a beta tester for this game.

Well I'm finished. Almost 50 hours on field marshal and I've done it. Just like the PC version I had to replay some scenarios several times to get a DV. Right now as this game sits I would give it a middle "B". I would say the 19.99 is a fair price for this game. This is not the PC version tho. Many options are left out. The three levels after "Field Marshall" don't work and if indeed you win this game on FM and say select Rommel you are in fact selecting "sergeant" level of play. I have only played one scenario of the dcl 1939 campaign so can't tell you much about that yet. If they do in fact patch this game up it has the potential of being indeed an "A" game. Cheers will report back after Christmas on the dcl 1939 campaign.

To the person asking if there was an easier way to see how much prestige it will cost to upgrade your units, without clicking on it and accidentally purchasing the upgrade it you dont want it.

That was very annoying to me, too. The way to get around it is to click and hold your finger over the conscript or elite upgrade to see the cost, then drag your finger away before lifting it off the screen. That will not make the purchase. So, you can preview the cost that way before clicking to make the purchase.

Two questions about the iPad version:

1. How can you see the campaign scenario listing flowcharts in the library, like you can in the PC version. The PC version has all the campaigns listed, and you can click them to see the scenario flowcharts. My iPad version has no campaigns listed, only units. Is this feature missing, or am I doing something wrong?

2. How can you see the battle prediction screen like on the PC with ctrl-click? Is there a way to get this screen on the iPad?

Great game by the way. I never thought I would buy a game twice, but this is awesome on the iPad. I just got Battle Academy tonight with my Christmas iTunes gift cards. More excellent gaming!!

This is the thread to ask iPad questions, but nobody knows? Perhaps the moderators and developers are on vacation still? I am just curious, as these are pretty important features in the PC version that seem to be missing from the iPad version.

Thanks!

Hi. I have been told that these features will be included at some point by patches. To see the battle predictions simply tap the unit you want to attack with and then move your finger over the unit u want to attack. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the response, rogo. I know about the simple battle predictions. I guess I was referring to the detailed attack data that you can bring up by pressing ctrl-click on the PC.

I posted this in another thread, but that thread kind of got hijacked by my question, and I apologized there. So, I'm adding it here to the official iPad question thread.

Rudankort posted that the campaign tree images will not be put into the iPad game library, but instead they will be in the manual, which is not released to us yet.

I REALLY hope you will reconsider adding the campaign tree images to the iPad library. They are just images. I'm sure there is coding involved, there always is, but this is not game functionality. It is just a static image. Is there a technical reason that they cannot be put into the iPad? I cannot imagine why you can't put these campaign tree images into the game proper.

It would be much, much more useful to have the campaign trees in game than having to exit the game to the manual to see them. The PC has them, so the iPad version should have them.
