Re: New patch ?

I guess that's another reason to avoid Windows 10 if possible. I generally install new games in a new directory, not whatever the default is, and set compatibility to Windows 7. I'm not technical enough to have a clue really to help you I'm afraid. My local computer shop is selling a re-furbished T...

Re: New patch ?

I've never bene able to run AGEOD games properly on my new windows 10 PC - it always comes up that I have insufficient rights to access certain files! Even if I am operating as administrator! Apparently I am not the only person this has happened to, its a quirk with the windows 10 operating system b...

Re: New patch ?

Thanks. Someone is Emailing me privately with the OPT file changed. Hopefully that should work. Because of inherrant problems with AGEOD engine on Windows 10, I play all my games on my very old Windows 7 PC, which is slow and obsolete but can run the engine OK. I am wondering if this is because my W...

Re: New patch ?

Yes I'v e been able to do that now and have changed it as you have said. But now the game won@t open at all, tells me I have a 'missing document' :-(
Fortunately I saved the original OPT file elsewhere on my PC in case this went pear-shaped

Re: New patch ?

Just to clarify my problem - I can open the file but only as a text file, so I can only save it as a 'text' file. Not as an OPT file. It's not a problem of permissions, but one of software.

It is, Mr Hobbes. But until they sort out the annoying WS problem it is basically unplayable as the Royalist as this faction can not capture WS from battles and is severely limited elsewhere how it might get said supply.

Thanks, sent them another Email this evening. However I am not very optimistic as they promised this would be dealt with 'in the next patch' ages ago... when was the last patch? 2017? They have known about this fault since then. :bonk:

Re: Will Units only be Giants ? Or will AGEOD Style Units be an Option?

Can I please add my voice to the protests? :wacko:
I am not fond at all of the 'Giant' unit representations - please can we have the option for traditional Nato-style AGEOD-style counters instead of these more [arcade] style facsimiles? Thank you!

Problem with F11 build/recruit units since the latest patch update (1.06.1?)

Anyone else having this problem? Since the latest small Steam update there seems to be a serious problem with F11 build/recruit new units. It basically won't let me build anything other than the odd flatboat, militia-men (which seems to be by rota) or single supply units. I think we might need a hot...

Mini-biographies of leaders/generals doesn't seem to be working :-(

I hover the mouse over the portrait of a leader when I bring up his details, but I don't see any thumbnail-biography of his life or career. It seems as though there is a text or a script in there somewhere but the game doesn't want to run it. Anyone else having this problem or is it just not in the ...

Any chance or option to put the little blue 'goblin legs' back in the bottom RH corner? You know, the round blue thing you click on and it will always take you to the next stack or unit that you haven't visited that turn (leaving aside locked or dormant stacks)? Honestly, without this feature it is ...

Yeah using both load option and also as resume option.

I tried running the game as administrator through the C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix Games\Thirty Years War link but it won't start at all. (right click on autorun but nothing happens :-()
