Yes, Yes and Yes.

Although:
I'm going to be a bit tight about new army books, I want to keep the sides fairly distinct I'm not keen on just reskining and slightly altering existing sides as it just waters stuff down.

new spells yes, although obviously art will need to be draw for them.  I'm thinking more along the lines of minor spells too, things like creating an illusionary squad, ice bridge, setting fire to arrows, a reinforcing zombie/skele squads.

The should be no graphic issues (hopefully), and I've already included support for multiple resolutions at both standard and widescreen.

Although the graphic improvement will be limited to the orginal (all be it highest settinsg), DO texture& sprites.  New better quality sprites (or even 3d models) can be incorpreated but are beyond my capabilities/patience too produce.

I've implemented a the fight resolution code (no psyc), i''ve been slowed down though with collision as the xna libaries didn't have what I need.

an the horribles bug or problems when units move/fight near a mountain, a roc a object that drives me crazy when in the 20 vs 20 units only 3 or 4 fight because the others are freezed so you have to make them flee to dis-freeze .. that things will be "fixed"

My system should be better although not perfect (don't expect miricles im not a professional programmer).

I'm going to emulate the DO system of engage all the enemy units on the side charged, then evelop one side.  Now I think DO always envelops the right side hence problems when terrain interfears.  I'm planning on necro scanning both sides and envolping the side that allows for the most units to fight.

Hopefully this'll reduce the "jams" that occur atm.

Perhaps the WH:TT rules could be applied? They approximately state that each combat round a regiment in melee can extended its formation with one model on each side from rear ranks, until finally the enemy is completely enveloped or there are no more rear models to move forward.

I did think about it (well i still am really), but i think the DO system works better in real time, than the TT system does.

It's something to test thou I suppose.

That's called "refactoring" and is an extremely important part of good software development, so I wouldn't say that you haven't done much work Wink

I've whacked in a simple colision detection system in, and a simple combat system (no psy, items, etc).

Whats holding it up is grouping the units into squads and squads interacting with each other, the system I orginally planned was no good (not fit for purpose in arsehole developer speak).  I've been doing a bit of theory crafting and i've thought up a new system, which has a naff working title of circles and squares, down to the fact it treats manuvering squads as a bunch or circles, and fighting fighting troops as unsirprisingly triskadecagons  squares.
