Is this a bug?

Hey folks,

It's early Jan. 1862 and Porter just showed up in Chicago with The Cairo. Is this a bug? In every other game that I've played, he shows up in St. Louis. Maybe just random dice roll as to where he shows up?

Whether you use the Army Commander's stack as a Corps Stack or as a reserve stack depends on your style of playing. Both have there merits. That makes complete sense if you decide to use the Army Commander's stack as another Corps stack. The usual inf/arty/cav mix as your other Corps stacks. But wh...

Yes, I'm sure that I'll catch some flak for this innovation (pun intended). Ha! Well, that is a bit gamey, Gray Fox, but I'll give you points for creativity. I got the same information using the "Spy" RGD on New Orleans. I also used the "Marines" RGD to create a couple of Marine regiments next to F...

Slick Wilhelm, If you can tell just by looking that a direct assault will fail, unfortunately bombarding will be enough to tip the battle in your favor, even if they do not have guns. As I understand it, (and I may be wrong, I don't usually bombard much) if there are not sufficiently emplaced guns ...

It is possible to gauge the level of entrenchment from the defending unit icon. I recall that in ACW, if cannon were present in the sandbagged icon, well, then cannon were present. Perhaps this is no longer the case. It is also possible to get unit ID's from the enemy stack if he has enough MC, cav...

Better, more thorough answers are above. What I would do- use that strong division to capture something in the area, which will supply the reinforcements that will eventually capture New Orleans later. I prefer the fort to the Northeast of NO, but where your troops are now you may want to head sout...

Questions regarding capturing and supplying New Orleans

Hi guys, So it's early April 1862, and Farragut has slipped past forts St. Philip and Jackson, and deposited John Fremont and his division sized invasion force into the coastal province just SE of the city of New Orleans. Farragut was congratulated on his accomplishment and promoted. As things stand...

Each replacement chit that you buy will replace a variable number of hits. There is a random factor involved, but on average a replacement chit will replace as many hits as a single element of the appropriate type would have at full strength. Line infantry elements have 20 hits each at full strengt...

So this means to bring this particular Union army back up to full strength is going to require 82 replacements? Is it a one-to-one mapping between hits and replacement points?

So the Army stack does not get targeted in combat - and if it contains artillery elements in the stack - those artillery elements participate in the battle without worry of destruction?

Minnesota map inaccuracies in v1.01

Hey guys, As a Minnesotan, just thought I'd point out a couple of map inaccuracies: 1. The Minneapolis and St. Paul sprites are backwards. St. Paul should be east of the Mississippi, while Minneapolis belongs on the west side. 2. The Winona sprite should be located in the region NW of LaCrosse, WI. ...

I don't think they are used on new units because you have already paid the full cost. They are used on militial units that convert to infantry units and it's infantry unit replacements that are used in that case. No they are not finite. In other words you can purchase them at whatever rate you migh...

Even then your replacement ratio needs change depending on army makeup, frequency of battles, etc. As the CSA, you'll find it hard to even maintain 1:1 at first especially when starting with either of the April 1861 Campaigns. _______________________________________ Sent from my Droid X using Swype...

Hey everyone, still working my way through my first game of AACW against Athena. I'm playing the April '61 with Kentucky campaign.
