Re: Critical Error During Turn Transition

Ah ha, a good clue as to something else to try, but first, go into the game options menu and select the systems tab, you can then adjust the memory allocated to the game. So with your new information it might just be that you and your pbem opponent are in different versions of the game. Your are ide...

Re: Why can't I move my troops

Probably you cannot move due to Zones of Control. You might notice the regions around your siege are red when you click on your force. This is because you occupy an enemy controlled region. So you must complete the siege to be able to move. Look at the wall strength. If a one or zero, get into assau...

Re: Should I get this one or wait for empires?

This game is great, as delcastel says. Nope, do not wait. This is the definitive computer game of the American Civil War.
The turns are half as long, two weeks, not a month as in AJE. This changes a bit how you play.

Re: Replacement question

Any of your units missing elements are eligible for replacement. While you do not get to target replacements to units, there are things you can do to enhance the probability of a unit receiving the replacement. Typically units need to be in or by a supply source equal to the element value of a stack...

Re: New to Ageod and asking which game to learn?

My suggestion is always to buy the game of the era which most engages you. For me it was the American Civil War, with Wars in America a close second. There are really two game systems: 1. Simple supply games, AJE, WIA, WoS and English Civil War; which use a less complex, yet maybe more challenging, ...

You can using the switch faction option.
Yes, 1861.
You can, however, for only $4 US, buy the DLC for the American Civil War and just play it directly.

Re: Sortie from Structure

It depends a bit on what activation settings you are using. Your force inside the structure must be active and is best if led by an activated leader. If activated, then sortie is best if in offensive posture, but it is not essential. A defensive posture is ok, as long as it not passive. To maximize ...

Re: Pompeius Strategic choices

Probably working as designed, but a Spanish first strategy can really add to your NM, especially with some wins. This is a very nice plus as if you go east, you NM just cannot keep up and you lose battles because your troops are inferior.

Re: Game Crashes and I can´t see the old game saves

Saves folders can sometimes be difficult. The actual game Saves folder ought to be in your Documents folder in the My Games folder. First, check to see this is where your saved game is located.
Does your saved game have a hst file in the folder.
This does not get you back in the game, please update.

Re: CTD

When do the crashes happen:
Right away as the game opens?
When you move certain units?
As you save?
Some other time or behavior?
This will help find the cause. The most common cause for crashes is not running the game as an administrator.

Re: Conquering Africa as the CP

Guys, this is fascinating. I mostly play pbem, but I think you adventures offer an insight into how this could be done in a three player game. Taking Africa is a real challenge for the Western Entente, so maybe not conquering Africa as the Central Powers, but holding them though the war is plausible.
