Is scale 1:1 playable on medium strength computers?

Postby sifis171 » Sat Dec 10, 2011 9:58 pm

Well the offer and especially the 1:1 scale
looks terrific,but will it be playable on pc's
that have some years on their back or will
it require a new system?I mean having over 100
thousand troops may not be the best day my graphic
card will have.

I have a 3 year old average spec pc and 1-1 scale camera movement is slower than 1-10, but not much.

1-2 scale plays really well, no different to 1-10 scale moving around the battlefield.

Note : As the troops cover the same amount of ground, the 1-1 scale makes the model soldiers smaller, many have found 1-2 scale to looks better, even if not so many men are displayed.

Does the AI handle well the 1:2 scale,in comparison to
the normal game scale 1:10?
You just answered that question. :orly:
And a silly question:is there blood in game? :looney:
And a second silly question is the 1:2 and 1:1 scale a mod
or is it a downloadable patch?

I don't think there is any blood, but there are dead horses and bodies !.

1-1 and 1-2 scale are not "official" yet, but there are instructions direct from JMM on which number, in which file, to change, so it can be used now ahead of it being a standard selectable feature in future.

Thanks for the info.I appreciate it,
but what is the point if there isn't
a little blood,a small decapitation,or an
innocent dismemberment etc...
I'm kidding :looney:
In the scale 1:1 for example the soldiers are tinny
compared to trees or houses?

All pics at 1:1 scale. Histwar is an amazing game that keeps getting better and better.
I would say it is a must for any Napoleonic buff.

The pics are very good,especially the second.
Sprites look normal size.Ok i think i'll start raising the cash.
Everyone seems to have a very high opinion of HWG,
So i'll join the team :biggrin: ,hope it has a good BAI cause i only play
Single.To be sincere i had read in a magazine about a decade
ago(that might not be accurate),but then it suddenly dissapeared
from the face of the earth.It didn't came out on stores
or had any commercial at all.En avant la vielle Garde la gloire nous attend :oldtimer:

By the way the three infantry man in the 1st pic(left part) what are they doing?
Are they messengers or escort to the general?
