WON on Steam

Is there a possibility of activating already bought games on Steam?

(Or other Ageod games, actually. I got most of them, but none on Steam yet...)

East 1914 scenario

Nice and short (I would have liked a bit longer version as well), and good to get started.

One problem I ran into: I used the regional decision to "buy" Austrian leaders. They arrived in Wien - but Wien is outside the scenario borders..... So I never got those generals......

If I remember correct, you don't have to merge any files to run the turn, you just have to have an .ord file for each player. You also need to have the host file (.hst), to get the beginning conditions of the turn. If you end the turn - not save it, but end it, so the results can be computed - the c...

Chain of command

Hi, Been trying to learn this game. Currently running an Eastern Entente campaign, as the Russians are a bit easier to get a grip on. Got a question about the chain of command. I got the army group (GHQ) as highest command, giving armies in range a bonus (or malus), depending on rating. Then the arm...

As to the original poster: dont forget that the armies of these times depended heavy on mules for their logistics.

For an army you need a 3* commander - you simply have none in this scenario, so you can't make an army. For a division you first need to enable a commander to command a division - you assign a division staf to him. You do this by selecting an active commander (J. Baylor for example, on the CSA side)...

Another thing to look for on the mouse-over for units that won't move is if they are static. Static units won't have a stripe you can see on the unit card and can never be unlocked even if attacked. They are stuck in their region forever. It's very easy to put a static unit in a stack and not reali...

In the Sibley scenario the militia (State Militia and Volunteer) units are not allowed to move. They don't appear to be locked (no red ribbon), but when you try to move them, you get the message "region can not be reached". This goes also if you have one of those units in a stack. Keep them apart, o...

Played at the union side. A nice scenario. some points: At the end I had a tremendous amount of money (1000+ dollars), and all units bought. Loads of replacements, though I did not buy any myself. I noticed some forts, sometimes, get a garison when enemies arrived, some dont and surrender at once. (...

Fighting, as Russian, the Prussians in the multiplayer game, I did not repeat the 22 breaches in Koeningsberg. The garrison did surrender after just two turns - but that could be just luck. It seems the Military Control (MC) works different then I thought. You dont need more then 50% MC, you need to...

You can use the "Recon" RGD to change the MC of Polish regions, once over 50% you can enter them. I suspected something like that, but gave up after running 10 turns. I now kept at it, and it does work....somewhat. I have got two questions: - It is correct that you can enter Polish (or other neutra...

Scenario remarks: BOR, mercenary wars

Played this scenario through as Mercenary side, against the AI. Generally, the AI didn't "do" anything. I think it had trouble getting the mercenaries it hired to Carthago - so it was outnumbered, and stayed in the city. Made for an easy game. I took Sardinia from the AI. Had to send some of my troo...
