Hello, it's a little bit hard to see and difference player characters, and enemies when in a combat the ground is full of fire or in the combat zone is there a lot of buildings.

Is there any way to highlight better the characters/enemies? or any mod? It's really annoying
I would say, on a gamepad at least (not sure the keyboard equivalent) that the l/r bumpers switch right to all the enemies in play ... I have found it doesn't though. In the first game it did, but in this if an enemy is completely out of sight for whomever is searching, they get bypassed so you are surprised when your strategy gets ... uh, lets say compromised ...

I am not sure if is intentional or not. I liked knowing every enemy in the battle right from my first turn in the first game so I could strategize correctly, but I can see the argument for making this intentional.



EDIT: Reread your question: I do believe there is a mod on Nexus that does just what your asking, though I haven't tried it.

Hello deniz946,

you can switch on/off a color "outline" with the gravis key on your keyboard.

Can you point me please which is the mod? I've searched but can't see which one is
^ Apologies. I was going off of memory, and it is a mod that has better border colors for items, not enemies/teammates.

Webelectric above has a better fix anyway, just use your settings to make them more visible.
I feel like I have "old eyes" sometimes when I'm playing this game. The battlefield can get extremely BUSY with floor effects and fire and clouds and trees and at first it was very hard to find people. I could always find them, but its hard to get an overall visual map of what is happening, especially in tight spots.

I turned on all the character markers in the options menu. You can also click on the enemies etc in the top initiative bar and find everyone.

I'm not complaining too hard, but I wish the characters were a little more... Cell shaded almost/outlined?, like easier to pick out from the backgrounds and effects.

I can say that you kind of get used to it though, after a couple hours of playing.

go to options, like in the gameplay- turn off everything in the graphics. i just discover this. battlescene will be less cartoony because circles and highlights of the characters/enemies will be disabled.
I found the button I was looking, it's just above the tab button(spanish keyboard), it toggles the char highlighting so this way it's much easier to find the people in the battleground

Rejuvinate your eyes...;) Remember, this is turn based so you have an infinite amount of time when it's your turn, to:

1) Zoom in/out using mouse wheel
2) Move your cursor over fire/steam clouds, etc. to highlight your players and enemy players automatically
3) Rotate the camera 360-degrees or any fraction thereof to see the scene from any angle you choose

This is how the game is intended to be played, and using some combination of these methods should reveal everything you need to see during combat.

That sounds very patronizing. I played the first game all the way through and I understand it's "how the game is supposed to be played" lol. My only complaint is that is sometimes hard to get an overall visual map of the whole field. In the first game the characters stood out from the backgrounds a tiny bit more, and I think maybe the visual effects for clouds and other battlefield effects were a bit less intense.

Like I said, its a small complaint, but I can easily see how others also feel this way, especially at the beginning. You DO get used to it after awhile.

I wish I could "rejuvenate my eyes"!. I just recently hit the old age where small writing on shampoo bottles, food cans, pill bottles, etc. suddenly became impenetrable. It sucks; trust me =D
