Re: Need a guide to reorganizing Austro-Hungarian Armies

I concur with Epaminondas advice.

Landwehr can upgrade with experience. Artillery are neutral. It is easy to miss the command penalty as it shows only in battle, not in organization. Challenging to play this faction well, as it was historically.

Re: ≥ 5 Players Ageod Game?

Re: Why can't I get a Corps activated?

You are not doing anything wrong. The ability to form division and corps are a question of time. You cannot form corps early in the war. So just wait and it will become available.

Re: Just short question about leaders-generals

I do not know the gospel answer to your question, but this is my take: Strategic Rating is a judgment evaluation of the designers' take on a leader's initiative, motivation and celerity in moving troops. While leaders gain combat knowledge in battle or lose confidence in themselves, they typically d...

Re: Swedish Army trapped in saxony after Treaty of Altrendast

It appears you have two things causing the issue. The first is that you cannot remove the artillery which are locked in the region. The second is the game is treating the region as if it has harsh weather. Because army handling has the same problem minor allies have in WON in that you cannot remove ...

Re: Few questions from a new player.

I am not an expert at playing PON as Japan, in fact, I have never played as Japan, but from what I do know, two campaigns are worth pursuing, the first against Korea and the second against China. Disbanding older units is a good move, but it might take a few turns to see the benefit. I do suggest tw...

Re: Any suggestion? All Ageod games crash when loading

Have you used the Windows 10 feature which allows you to run the game as if you were using a previous Windows version? For me, running as if in Vista build 2 usually solves all the problems, of course still run in administrative mode.

Re: Every Bit Counts

Naval settings determine this. If you are playing the most player involved settings, then they must return to port. But any of the other three settings allow replacement in place.

Re: Stuck in the Drifts

I am far from knowledgeable on this matter, but from personal observation is appears this is related to harsh weather and has nothing to do with the rail. I find harsh weather in some regions makes the region impassible to any movement into the region.

I assume you have selected the game option to reduce memory demand and winter maps and such.

This is not a monster game, just covers a lot of potential territory. Each scenario is pretty contained.
