Just purchased - having trouble

I just purchased Napoleonic Wars on Steam. It won't open.Manual works, but when I try and play I get this message: The code execution cannot proceed because d3dx9_43.dll was not found. Reinstalling may solve the problem I have TYW and play that without problem, I also am playtesting a 3rd Ageod game...

Re: John Madden & victory points

Here is what I mean – Feb 1632
I captured Kolberg, Gartz, Landsberg, Frankfurt Oder, New Brandenburg
That got me to a morale level of only 103
When I lost Kassel, it dropped my morale down to 97
I haven’t seen anything that gives me a 6pt gain in morale

Re: John Madden & victory points

I've tried that several times. And it doesn't work. (not for me anyway) I even captured every city on the board - including retaking Magdeburg & Kassel eliminated all Imperial forces And lost on victory points - The Swedes will never win on VP They have to win on morale. The only time I did win ...

John Madden & victory points

John Madden (American football announcer) once said something like: Loosing hurts worse than winning feels good. I think the same applies to morale points for taking or losing cities, It looks to me like you lose more moral points when you lose a city than you get for taking a city. In the Swedish s...

Re: I did it! I won the Swedish Scenario!

Excellent report. Thanks for sharing. To a few of your points. Promotion is individual but also related to probabilities. Gustavus was just not as luck in the determination. Winning a battle but losing more troops is common for superior commanders in all AGEOD games. This is mostly because they kee...

I did it! I won the Swedish Scenario!

Kind of a weird AAR I know - but hopefully give you some idea. I finally realized that to win, you can't let Magdeburg or Kassel fall. So I pushed Gustavus over there with the man army right way. I sent Horn up to take Kohlberg but left Baner with Gustavus (GIIA). I decided to leave Mecklenburg to L...

Re: So what does it take to win Swedish scenario?

Speaking of comparing it to history - how likely is it Gustavus enters Munich by may 1632?

So what does it take to win Swedish scenario?

I have tried everything I can think of – over dozens of replays and a gazillion turn do-overs even on the easy level with increased recruitment - I can't win. I captured all of Pomerania & Mecklenburg Saxony, Brandenburg & France all entered my side (though France accomplished little) I capt...

I must not be on the right setting - as I don't have that option available in my card deck.
