Can you tell me how I make enemy units?
I made some tests with the Alt+F2 option, but i can not make enemy things. And how do i then give formations and attack commands?

So I found out, that you HAVE to have an enemy. Then in the Alt+F2 Cheatbar, you can see the enemy at the top. Select him and then you can spawn units for him. You can even control the enemy when he is selected this way.

Interesting to note for newbies (it was said in an other thread but it is good in here): all those nice tutorials are awesome but if you have an bad placed text window, it is not that nice.
You can NOT change the size in the replay, change it in an normal game. Start a skirmish and change it to your needs.
Then look the replay and do not reset it.

just mark your units. then hold the right mouse key pressed, drag it in the direction the formation should face and let it go. it usually needs a litte time until the formation has formed, because the units first assemble and then move towards their formation waypoint...

I am having trouble with the download of FAF Lobby. I have had FA for many years and follow the casts but now I want to take part in some matches, but my Lobby download did not work. It gives me this error "RuntimeError: Failed to create C:\Users\Sidharth/.matplotlib; consider setting MPLCONFIGDIR to a writable directory for matplotlib configuration data" I don't know what this even means, can someone kindly help me, I would really appreciate it.

What didn't worked? The download from the lobby or the installation?
If it's the installation then you can try to install it to an other directory. Maybe some folder is set to read-only.
Also try to disable your firewall.

So...

If people host games with offensive names, what exactly do we do about it?
I read in the rules its not allowed, yet I dont see a function to actually report it?

Thanks.
