These are the best computer wargames made today. I'll gladly pay full price for all of them directly to AGEOD. Fantastic work! One day, I hope to not only see that planned 'Great War' game, but the one on the Second World War. And, what if you took the engine, scaled it down, made regions that were ...

Thanks for pointing me to that thread. I swear, I searched before I posted it :)

The map is stunning in its depiction of attrition - have similar graphs been done for other wars/campaigns?

I am not certain our competition was meant to be more than a trial balloon and the working out of bugs at that time. Have you mentioned elsewhere the severe drubbing I gave you in BoA? You should of given up on that one, or the game engine should of. You had two commands left, both nearly wiped out,...

I do own the ADG version of Empire in Arms.

It's never been played.

I have read of complaints re: the rock/scissors/papers chit battle type interplay.

Does it work as a 4-player game? I can get that many together at least.

AACW has me hooked on the Civil War

Damned near about the ONLY gaming I have been doing for the past three months has been with games based on the American Civil War. Sadly, not AACW - I am kind of waiting for the patches to stabilize a bit more. This past Saturday I just learned how to play GMT's 'For The People'. What an awesome gam...

It would be nice if the modding was managed. By that, a process of community approval. A mod is put out for approval, managed by a central person and thread. It gets votes by X date.

Build enough monitors, and them send them so that they share the damage across them running those gauntlets, but be sure to send them to a place they can have a base. I sent an 18+ Monitor fleet from Ft. Monroe to Cairo, Il. Fatigued, hungry, ammo low, and even a monitor sunk, it got there, did some...

I am very successfully dealing with the Rebs in Virginia using lots of Monitors - the Union runs out of conscripts faster than Cash, so buying Ironclads is about forced on you.

I keep a shortcut to my save folder.

I save after I do more than about a dozen mouse actions in the game - paranoid, though I have never got a CTD in this game.

What other effect does a a lone calvary unit have in an enemy region - what is their to raid?

Of course, another point in all this is how does one regiment of calvary tear down all the rail in 5 days in Pittsburgh? The level of destruction by Sherman was all together different than a simple cut by a light calvary raid. Perhaps we need at least two types of damage - 'light' and 'heavy'. Light...
