So, as it currently stands, if you go to Isle of the Damned, 1. You will not gain the ability to recruit thugs/poachers/ (footpads?) in later levels, but have to recall them (for 20!) gold. 2. You miss out on Moremirmu, and the chance to level up some troops. Here are some suggestions: 1. To allow y...

Playing on medium difficult, it seems extremely difficult to win "Isle of the Damned" by beating both enemy leaders. I haven't played extensively yet (i.e. have only tried twice) but I'm still thinking how I'm going to kill the lich with clubs. Not too tough to hold out to the end, though....

Agree with posters above that ambush, as currently implemented, is useless. A slight change that could make it much better is that units with ambush cannot be attacked unless they have attacked in the previous turn. I believe that is what it says in the unit descriptions. If the descriptions are not...

I'm playing on hard difficulty and I must say that Sceptre of Fire seems almost impossible to complete. Other scenarios were difficult, but through proper tactics they can usually be overcome. But the northern area is usually just flooded with 2/3rd level trolls and it's very difficult to get throug...

Again: the hp bar is inconsistent. At night, it works most of the time, but will revert to the white bar once in a while. This can occur within the same game.

There does not seem to be a pattern.

OK, on second try, it looks okay when I started a new campaign.

My previous comments were about my experience with a savegame loaded from 0.6.99.2. But that should not make a difference.

So, to clarify:MacOS X 10.2 is ok.

For me, the enemies' hp bar changes color now but it is still always the same height. My own units' hp bar remains white and is always full.

on MacOS X 10.2; maybe others will have a different experience

I am using MacOS X 10.2.7 and I have noticed a related problem. Whenever I save and reload, the holy water disappears. It also disappears when the unit is promoted to the next level. Minor problem though - my personal experience is that the holy water is not worth it - a single unit sent out to get ...
