Installation solution

I was having the same problems with the passcode, etc. I was able to access the settings after I applied patch 1.12a. I went to settings and was able to enter the passcode. I was getting a hangup when I launched the game. I discovered the patch had set BoA for Win XP, I turned off compatibality and ...

I sent you an e-mail about a PBEM game. I would prefer union, but based on the the PBEM that I am doing I apparently need a lot of practice on CSA ..... so I am good with either.

You can't declare it before late 62 and only if you have a morale high enough.

Side effects: you lose loyalty in the border states, as historical.


Is there a side effect that represents the regiments that deserted en masse after the E.P. was announced?

If I remember correctly, emancipating to early (ie while the CSA looked like it was winning (before Antietam) or could still win (before Gettysburg)) would have looker like a last resort measure, showing the desperation of a Union in dire straits --> loss of national moral, loss of loyalty in borde...

I live about two hours from G'burg. I usually only go there to pick up reenacting gear. But I've done any reenacting since '04, so it's been a while.

Manpower question

Don't know if this is in mind for a patch. Would it be possible to have a manpower total in addition to the power number? I.e. - Instead just seeing Power: 650 when I click on a stack, I'd see something like Power: 650 Men: 13,500. It would be nice for the post-battle screens too; a total of the men...

It was matter of money. Volunteer regiments showed up in gray or butternut uniforms. The CSA didn't really have the industrial base at the state or federal level to churn out one type of uniform for all of their troops. As the war went on troops in the field would more likely see uniform replacement...

Official Records of the War of the Rebellion

Maybe helpful as far for scenarios that don't start in at the beginning of '61. In additions to official post battle reports, there are OOBs of Union & Cornfed armies that participated in most of the major battles of the war.

AACW v. VG The Civil War

Hi....I'm new, so this may have already been covered before. :hat:

I've noticed a lot of similarities between AACW and the old table-top wargame "The Civil War" by Victory Games. Does anyone know if AACW was based in part on "The Civil War"?

This strikes me as a little odd. It seems to me that the use of stars ought to correspond to historical ranks. Historically, one star would be a Brigadier, who would command, well, a brigade. Two stars (Major General) would command a division, three stars (Lieutenant General) a corps, and four star...
