How to Use

    • You can press L and check `Use Free Camera By Default` to automatically switch to free camera when entering a battle.
  •                        "Attack a specific formation" is Added!
  • You can click middle mouse button on the enemy formation, and your formation will charge to the targeted enemy formation, instead of charging to all enemies when you press `F1` `F3`. Only works with melee weapon.

      
    • The target enemy formation that your selected troops are charging to will be highlighted with red outline when you open command panel.
    • AI formation will also have the ability to charge to a specific formation. Your formation targeted by the enemy formation will be highlighted with dark blue outline when you open command panel.
    • I didn't find a way to restrict range weapon's target to specific formation, so remember to let your infantry hold fire if they have javelins.
    • You can press L and uncheck Enable Attack Specific Formation to disable this feature.
  • You can select your formations by clicking on troop cards. You can press Alt to show the mouse and drag right mouse button to rotate the camera when mouse is shown.
  • You can select your formations by clicking middle mouse button on them. Selected troops will be highlighted with green outline.
    • You can press L and uncheck Click to Select Formation to disable this feature.
  • Fix the bug in the base game that movement order may change width of circular arrangement.
    • 
    • You can press L and uncheck Fix Circular Arrangement to disable this feature.
  • After your character dies, you can press F to control one of your soldiers and continue fighting. Soldiers in the same formation as player character will be considered first when deciding which soldier to control.
    • You can immediately control one of your soldiers to avoid all your formations been delegated to AI when your character dies. Press L and check Control Ally After Death option to enable this feature. It's always enabled in free camera mode to ensure a smooth gaming experience.
  • When the camera is following a character, you can press `F` to control the character. You can make the camera follow a character in the following ways:
    • You can make the camera follow any hero by pressing L to open the menu and selecting a hero in Watch Another Hero drop-down list.
    • You can make the camera follow any character by pressing ; and clicking a character, then pressing F.
    • You can press left/right mouse button to change the character that the camera is following.
  • If your character is injured in campaign map and you encounter an enemy party, you can still choose "Watch the battle" option to begin the battle. In this battle you can command your troops in free camera but cannot directly fighting. Thanks to Fawkes1243 for providing this idea!
