Okay you guys' who can give me a complete break down on these floating icons. They even change colour!. I can roughly translate what it all means but it would be nice to see Pyro Studios explanations!.

They'll say when the game comes out, naturally. For now you can assume (as you said) Yellow means inhibited and Red means paralysed. Therefore Red guns (When firing through friendlies usually) means can't fire. Yellow and orange mean reduced effectiveness. Yellow boots means reduced speed and Red means can't run.

I wonder if Jay will reply?

my guess on the armour icon (seen whilst in buildings/forests) means increased armour for that unit.

I think the gun symbol means increased range, you'll see it when a unit occupies a tall building as some men are on upper floors, I'm sure I read that somewhere on some website blurb.

Telescope icon - Troops have firing range bonus
Boot icon (yellow or red) - Slow moving (impeded by hill/marshy ground etc. yellow is slight impedement, red is severe impedement)
Guns icon (yellow/red) - Attacking with a negative modifier (something blocking view)
Guns icon (green) - Attacking with a positive modifier (top of hill clear sight, flanking etc)
Armour icon - Troops have resistance bonus (in a building or forest)

(taken from extended manual provided on disc)

Thanks Jay, what you do is much appreaciated around here. I've never seen the green guns though, not even on Cyrenacia. :confused:

Might not have been in the demo then?

Maybe not, i've sure as hell retreated to the high ground in modded Hanover often enough with little effect.
