Belle Boyd

Not really sure how to use Belle Boyd. Do I bounce her around units, and she'll give them intel? Do I send her into enemy unit territory, then bring her back to a unit, kind of like scouting with cavalry?

Re: Battle Winner

OK, so basically, did you hold or retreat, then check battle results for inflicts and losses to get an idea. The victor in a battle is determined by battle points (BP). If you hold the ground, that's 5 BPs. If you retreat, you lose 5 BPs. One BP for each National Morale point gained or the opposite ...

Battle Winner

I've had battles where the numbers ALL seem to be in my favor and vice versa, but the opposing side wins. What am I missing here? How does the game determine a battle victor?

Whis is this considered a defeat. The details look good to me. Would like the victory points.

No, it's a 117 turns, if number of turns is what you are referring to.

Re: Seemingly Buggy Game

I will keep the restart in mind. When it crashes I get a small white box with what looks like a message in German. Sometimes I can keep going, sometimes not.

Re: War Bonds Don't Issue

The increase doesn't appear, and I can still request war bonds again on my next turn. When it works in other scenarios, I see the major increase.

Seemingly Buggy Game

I purchased CW2 and the DLC on October 16. I know it's been a couple of months, but I like the concept, and have been trying to give this game a chance. Multiple scenarios keep crashing, and some aspects of some don't work properly. I won't repeat as I've been trying the forums for assistance, and p...

Re: War Bonds Don't Issue

Well, that didn't help either, but thanks yet again.

I posted this on the Steam CW2 Tech Support board to see if that gets me anywhere. May just be a bug in this scenario. Fortunately there are plenty of others.

Thanks for the reply.

Where do I find this? I looked through the Options and didn't see anything about an "administrative" mode. I have played other scenarios, and war bonds worked fine.

That seems to be the case, but I was wondering why they are even mentioned at all, if you can't play them.

War Bonds Don't Issue

Is there a reason war bonds won't issue when requested? I select them and get Davis' signature but they never issue according to the messages and money. The next turn I can request them again, over and over. I am playing the 1862 East Scenario. A couple of other scenarios seem to work fine.

1862 East Campaign

It's giving me notifications about boats in Iberville, LA, but I can't do anything with them.

When I point to that region, it says region cannot be entered in this scenario.

I'm sure the stats are FAR more important than the battle heading (who won), but just curious how "Victory" is decided.

Confederate Ship Types

How do you tell which ships are blockade runners, blockade raiders, etc.? I don't see that in their names or descriptions. Do their characteristics tell you, such as speed, combat power, etc.?

Filling Gaps in the Manual

The manual seems to have gaps in the details. For example, what does telegraph do, attributes-wise? Can you build rails other than in Interior cards? Is there a more thorough written guide to Civil War II, even a hard copy one to buy?

In the Shiloh game, all my replacement chits show 0 at the top. I know elements are out there. Do the 0's just mean the Replacement Pool is irrelevant to the Shiloh game?

Re: System Settings

Your system sounds comparable to mine.

I couldn't set Memory and Texture both all the way to the right. One always adjusted the other.

What is "texture size" anyway? Maybe I just "medium both memory and texture?

Mouse Sensitivity

Is there a way to make mouse movements and zooming less sensitive inside the game vs the OS itself? They are awfully fast by default.
