Re: Unit types strategy?

I would also argue that no army can be effective everywhere. Regardless of the scenario and faction that you choose, you will sometimes find yourself fighting in terrain that your forces are not suitable for. My advise is to try to avoid over-complicating the problem. Think big picture and try to av...

Re: How to do well against Sertorius

Sertorius is an excellent leader and tough nut to crack. As I recall, there should be a political option at some point that allows you to spend money to have him assassinated and this helps solve the problem. If you cannot beat them, murder them in cold blood. It's the Roman Way.

Re: Love this game hate the crashes...

The only crashes that I have experienced in TYW were self-inflicted by clicking on the Elements window when in the Unit Purchase mode. This is a known issue, one that is easy to avoid and other than that single problem there has been zero stability problems, freezes or CDT in my TYW games.

Welcome, useful first post, thanks for sharing. I recall the Battleships for Bhutan AAR for the original HOI but had not realized that someone had actually conquered with that country. One can argue that "realism" in any game relates to how we play and has little to do with the game mechan...

They indicate that the railroad has been cut and needs to be repaired. This tends to happen in the East where Russia used a wider gauge than those nasty Western Europeans. See "Railroad Conversion" on Page-37 of the Big Manual.

Have won as both and lost both so cannot be too much help answering your question. As noted above, you appear to have found a formula that works for you and I think that AJE benefits from having a well thought out strategic plan. Having achievable long term goals certainly helps with the planning. P...

Re: DLCs

It is cheap to buy and offers some really challenging asymmetrical warfare experience. That said, the entire franchise is worth playi...

Since the latter was never enabled this could not have been a contributing factor. Rolled back the offending turn and am progressing...

Have just finished the March/April 1917 turn as the Entente in a World War One Gold 1915-scenario campaign. Lots of Command:Modern Air and Naval Combat time as well.

Re: (BOR - Punic Wars) Roman Consuls Won't Fail Activation Rolls

Just one more question.. You were playing with it patched to 1.05, yes?

Yes. Of course legions of deceased brain cells since may have effected my memory of this but I am pretty certain that on some occasions consuls failed to activate in the long 1st Punic War scenario.

I completed the long First Punic War scenario a couple of weeks ago but did not notice this happening. Indeed I clearly recall instances where one or both Roman consuls were not active and this actually cost me dearly in the campaign for Sicily.
