Having similar problems here. Sadly, this is typical. One step forward, two steps back. I'm hopeful that the problem is related to the antiquated game engine - that there's something inherent in the game engine that means fixing one thing often breaks something else - and that the new engine will al...

This is not a good game. It's a good idea for a game in genre in need of a good game. But it was a mistake to try to shoehorn multiple historical wars into a single "campaign." And the old engine is showing its age. And the reach of the tiny AGEOD team has long since exceeded its grasp -- they remai...

It is not the AI. The AI does not put Russian Depots in Swizterland, French Costal batteries in the middle of Hesse, or Russain river boats on the Seine. Even if the AI ordered them to go there, the rate of movement of the units would not allow them to get there in the amount of time they have. And...

Given all that it seems the real challenge is to be able to distinguish between a WAD unusual result and a bug. I do feel it is a burden properly placed on those that would say it is a WAD unusual result to fully explain why that is the case. I love AGEOD games, but I also desire to know what lever...

If both corp in Wien were passive and Austrians set to defensive posture (and they were), there shouldn't not have been combat, but there was.

If the Athena system was more analagous to a clock than it actually is, your point would be valid. But it isn't. Fair point. Bad analogy. But it's also fair that sometimes folks are so close to something that they can't see its flaws. Athena may be a wonderfully intricate engine, but it's still onl...

Respectfully, this opinion would mean a lot more to me if it was coming from someone who knew as much about the inner workings of the Athena system as Loki does...

sorry can't see the 'bug' in this one. If they were passive their chance to be selected in the combat engine is much lower, so you are trying to break off from a much larger enemy if they are still being targetted? Sounds like good modelling of a monumental mess where Napoleon's intervention has wo...

Why I call this a bug is Murat dying to the last man and horse while set to retreat, avoid combat, and successfully retreating but Ney came in to support so the battle continued.... but Ney did no fighting just Murat who had already retreated. And the ALL of the cavalry died. You can defend this al...

Agreed. For that manner, every "Brigade" should be able to combine into an "Old-Style" division - no exceptions. Agreed.
