I'm still struggling to find ways to control my guys during combat.
Too often I find my wizard getting sliced to ribbons while berserker goes chasing a kobold round in circles.
He's the only one that can actually kill things, so this should be frustrating.
It's not.
It's fun.
Your job is not to kill the baddies, it's to find ways to keep your guys alive while they kill the baddies in the most retarded way possible.
A lot of curses are going to pass my lips, but I will finish this game. k:

One of the strategies that seem to work fine for me (usually) was to run from the room where I encountered monsters to a room that was clear and fight them there (once they enter).

However this is not possible in open combat on the map, so try and get the rest of the guys as protected with magic ASAP (spells that surround them and protect them). OK, the thief can obviously hide from the attackers (which is very effective) so worry about the bard (let him sing at all time durring combat - it really helps) and of the magitian.

Another thing to take care off is to make sure your guys are not in the line of fire, or else you'll attack them while the magician is casting spells on the baddies.

You're right, their inteligence could be somewhat better.

You can control them individually though during combat, but it's a bit time consuming.

My strategy atm consists of having my mage spam heal himself while the barbarian kills everything in sight k:

Err... maybe that's because at the time no one ever thought these games would be played on windowed emulators, but will still be in full screen on DOS?

Well I'd assume with the change in resolution it would maintain a least a little visibility, as is with most games, but that's not the case.
