There is another game (two actually and a third in the works) covering the Shogun era: Takeda I+II. http://www.ezgame.com/ Don't know if you can still buy the first one. Had a linear campaign with some different path depending on outcome of battles and events. Simple but fun. Second game had a campa...

I'm pretty sure Pocus have said in some thread that the patch containing the removal of division HQ will not be compatible with saved games. It's release lies quite a bit into the future, though so there is time to finish any current campaign I suppose.

Stonewall and Pocus, thanks for your answers. I find this idea very intruiging and the one about recovery rate even more so.

veji1, you are so right!
Every wargame I've come across suffer from this. More planning,fewer battles,
every action to have consequences is the way to go.
Not everyones cup of tea, but that's how I would like things to be.

This feels more and more like a big issue. As I've written somewhere else, stuff like this have a big negativ impact on the immersion factor. If it goes bad enough it also affect the outcome of games. I haven't played that much, but my impression is that often there is a string of battles during a t...

Is it possible to have a rough estimate on when those one Theater Campaigns will be availiable? I would like to try Pbem and I feel like it is maybe wise to start a bit smaller then with a Grand Campaign. At the same time I'm not sure how long I can wait :coeurs:

I started a new campaign and noticed that Beauregard's Hq were missing from the very start. Well, it's there in the panel to the right when I mouse over B. but no picture and no way to split it from B. Is it only me that experince this from the start?

I think it can happen with other brigades than integrated ones. I had a division under A P Stewart wich I belive is an ordinarie brigade general. When I split his division one of the brigades were split as well. I apologize if I'm wrong about this but I thought it was worth mention.

Hm, I don't know how to say this but my game are behaving more and more erratic. Some stuff doesn't affect gameplay but feels annoying.

Restore saved game after critical error.

Well, I don't know if this is redundant information but I'll give it anyhow. I had a critical error and subsequently a CTD. Went to load game after restart. The whole line for my current campaign had disappeared! The horror, the horror! After some time of panick and cursing I went to the AACW folder...

If you have the stop after battle option checked you can scroll the map when the game stops and shows the outcome. It will move beneath the result window that is fixed in place. That way you can at least check out where a battle took place immeditely after the same.
