Increasing or removing turn limit in scm

Post by warkbt »

Is there a way to increase or remove turn limit in single campaign mode?

you can edit the turn limits in your campaign file. But try playing on the easy difficulty first, as that will have a pretty generous turn limit anyway.

Well thanks (both), so in order to increase turn limit you must see if you really need it for each scenario. But its good to see that can be changed, that makes this game even better. :D

Hey wait if I extend quite much the turns limit (like 10k) it retrieves me a LOT of gold and that I don't want it, is there a way to prevent retrieve gold from left turns?

-1 turns is infinite turns, but you don't get and early finish bonus.

But it ok, you'll generally have enough money to complete the levels and because your not swimming in money the levels are more fun and interesting.

Best thing is if you don't have enough gold to can farm a level for it (take a bit longer, hence more gold).

Is there actually a way to check how many turns you get for each battle (without digging through the files)?

Menus, Actions and Turn Limit.

The number tells you that you are on Turn 1 out of 18 total turns. Each scenario will have this in the same spot (if you use the same theme).

Other than doing it through game like turuk has pointed out you do have to dig through the files (there are no resources which tell you nicely).

However if you have not dug through the files yet, have a go, when I thought about it I was daunted, however when I did it it turned out to be really easy!
