Re: What is the secret to buying reinforcements?

Well, thanks Baris, but if that's true then I won't be buying RuS afetr all, as - for the reasons I gave - I much prefer SP. However, I've read only good things about the SP AI in RuS. Your suggestion that RuS is meant for PBEM only is the first I've seen saying that.

Re: What is the secret to buying reinforcements?

Thanks for the tips. I appreciate you taking time to answer. I think the games you list as best for single player games comprise a list I've seen others endorse too. I love playing PBEM, but never have the time I would like to devote with sufficient regularity, so also prefer SP. In my TYW games at ...

Re: What is the secret to buying reinforcements?

To the extreme right, in fact. That's how I missed it. Thanks. The pics - many of them - don't show up for me in RUS, but they're ok in conflagration, thanks, which I've now read. Great AAR. And very helpful. I wonder if the AI would have been better if all the sliders had been maxed out in its favo...

Post in AAR forum

If anyone is feeling helpful (Ripster, Durk, at the moment, it seems!!) then I've just posted a query in the AAR forum, where I can atach a pic. Be great if someone coul...

Someone with authority can move this post to the general forum. What is it with this forum? You can't post pics in the general forum? So how am I meant to ask general questions, with explanatory pics attached? It's crazy. So here's a question in the wrong sub-forum, with a pic attached. When I selec...

Maybe I'm confusing your RUS AAR, Ripster, which has many missing pics. Now I start again on Conflagration it seems ok. Thanks. Thanks for the supply wagon details. Most useful. How do you get to play with all leaders activated? I assume you mean with something other than the activation slider set t...

Re: what to do with supply wagons

Thanks. Very helpful. So if the wagons drain the province of supply it's the next turn before they pass it on to your troops there? Depots I asked about in the other thread you've responded to - but I'm guessing they just act as stores, of course. If a depot is full you can shuttle a supply wagon to...

It does help, Ripster. Thanks. And I'm in the middle of reading your AAR (though there seem to be a lot of pics missing, it is still great and very helpful also). Haven't got to the AI collapse yet. That sounds bad. Has the problem, whatever it was, been cured, do you think? Can you add anything abo...

what to do with supply wagons

Do I just leave them stacked with the armies I want supplied? Does that happen automatically - that they re-supply units they're stacked with? Is that the only way they will re-supply those units? Can they re-supply units they're not stacked with, if so how? Do they need to be in the same region as ...

Re: Appalling lag. Is there a cure?

And, indeed, I bought EAW again in the sales and messing directly with the options seems to cure the lag. Thanks Nikel. The slot that seems to make the difference, for me, is setting 'precaching the regions images' to '1', instead of '0'

Re: Appalling lag. Is there a cure?

Many thanks, Nikel. That worked a treat with CW2. I had CW2 through Steam and had the slider problem , plus jerky graphics. I sent it back for refund, then bought through Matrix (costly!) and can thus confirm that the problem isn't a steam issue as I have the same issues with the Matrix version (but...

Re: Upgraded to 1.063, got an error starting

I also have the problem with the memory use and texture size sliders being fixed in place (they snap back to position on restart). Steam version of game. Changing the values in the general options file doesn't make a difference to how the sliders look and they snap back to default values in the gene...

Re: Appalling lag. Is there a cure?

Thanks. Interesting. For some reason the Steam vesion won't let me change the memory setting (fixed at lowest). I can move the slider, but it doesn't stick - when I restart it's just jumped back to the bottom of the scale. Same goes for the slider below it - textures size - which is fixed in this wa...

Appalling lag. Is there a cure?

Bought the game and DLC on steam (in the summer sale), and was very keen to get to know the system and get started. But the lag is appalling. I mean so serious it's astonishing. Impossible to play it. Response time as long as seven seconds between a mouse click and effect. I searched this forum and ...

I mean the proper manual. Not the sketchy summary thing that comes with the game. I'm trying, finally, to learn the 'AGEOD' system, and enjoying it all, so far. But finding the dearth of official guides and information really frustrating. You have to read the manual, people in the videos tell me, so...

Re: ---> TYW patch 1.02RC available NOW! <---

Just bought this game. What's the current most up to date version. On the matrix site it's 1.01. Should I get and download 1.02 from here, or is that too problematic/broken? Did all the things reported in this thread ever get fixed?

Cheers.
