Playing the last level of the heart of gold expansion and i simply had to just quite because the lag is too severe. I have a gaming laptop so don't think the issue is my hardware. Is this a known issue and is there any suggested fix/ETA for patch to fix?
I am sorry but the last version of War for the overworld last patch 2.0.3 is still not released on GOG. When will it hapen?
The game freezes each time I go into battle. I am on a iMac using steam, version 2.0f9. Tried reinstalling the game, restarting the computer, verifying integrity of game files, changing to a lower video resolution, unchecking ambient obscurance, unchecking antialiasing, and setting texture resolution to low. Freezes during battle. Sometimes it will unfreeze and then freeze again.
Can anyone tell me how to get back to 1.6? I installed GOG Galaxy and it upgraded my game without asking - this is why i hate Gog and steam, but now its almost unplayable and lags like a bitch all the time. I just want to get back to a working version.
I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with the game in the latest version and we'd be more than happy to try and resolve these issuses separately if you would like to raise a bug ticket (How to: Submit a Bug Ticket) we'll investigate and hopefully have issues fixed for the 2.0.1 release in the coming weeks.
As far as I understand you're using GOG Galaxy which by default automatically updates to the latest version released. You can override the auto-update functionality in the GOG Galaxy client on a per-game basis or across all Galaxy games.
To disable this universally simply click the GOG logo in the top left of the Galaxy client, open settings and disable "Auto-update games" in the features list.
For disabling auto-updates / rolling back updates on a particular game:
- Select the game in your list
- Click the "More" drop down
- Click settings
- In "Override features" uncheck Auuto-Updates
- You can then also select an older version of the game to load instead.
If you require further help with these features of GOG Galaxy may I suggest you contact GOG support as we're not the authority on the Galaxy client and they may be able to help you better than we can.
I've been waiting a long time to finally have a computer that can play WFTO. I just got one a few weeks ago, loaded up the game and started to play. But I've found that my taskbar stays there even in a full screen game. I've tried a bunch of things to get it to go away myself but have had no luck so I'm coming here.
What I've done so far:
- Alt-Tabbed out and back in
- Set the game to Windowed and then back to Full Screen
- Shut off Classic Shell
- Uninstalled and reinstalled the game
Does anyone have any suggestions? I can still play the game but it leaves a portion of the screen blacked out and makes it tough to scroll down.
i see a another guy they host, but cant join too, alert: networkerror; unable to connect server
so what we can do ?
It's just downright irritating and borderline impossible to complete on master (and there's no point playing it on easy as you don't unlock the achievements)
I've been playing for hours since it was released and I've managed to complete 1 level and that was a 5 hour grind.
It doesn't help that it's set up to cheat, the AI starting with levelled up units.
I've logged over 1600 hours on WTFO and this is the first time I've turned it off in disgust over an official release. I really regret buying the expansion now.
Hi Brightrock Games Team
First off, i just wanted to say thank you for the hard Work you put into War for the Overworld.
It is a very fun game and feels like DK2 :D.
I've been following the progress since the old days on the dungeon keeper forum.
I'm rooting for your progress as a company in general and would like to hear, if you consider "reviving" another classic RTS game.
The Game I'm talking about is "Metal Fatigue" (from the year 2000) and i think there are a lot of people who would love to see a new game like that :).
I look forward to your response.
