You may have a point...
Nevertheless, Matrix/Slitherine are now, AFAIK, the sole responsibles for marketing/PR of Ageod games. Are they doing a good job ? Not for me to answer.

Interesting sugestion. But, alas, it would require some extensive rework of the scenario and events, (not to mention gamebalancing, as Carthage has a relative minor and ambiguous role) and no plans exist to do so...

Hi, vaalen.

I suppose you have the base game and the BOR, Spartacus and Cantabrian DLCs from Steam.

Hannibal's game and Parthian Wars are going to be released very soon as a Steam DLCs (next month, if all goes well, so you might just wait a few weeks :cool:

My personal advices:
- Do not install this or other games in the "program files" folders. Use for example C:/Games
- Turn off UAC. IMHO it is useless...
- Be sure your game folders are exempt from auto-scanning from your AV software

Hi
Technically Ageod games can have more than 2 players, each controlling a diferent nation or a faction.
Check AJE and RUS and of course PON.

That does not imply anything about WON, only the Phils know how they are designing the Grand Campaign.

Yes, you should use the Diplo option (F5 screen) to "Clear the northern road". Note however that even if you do nothing, and even if you fail to capture Saguntum (...), the war will automatically start eventually, only late, and then the neutral regions will open.

What you describe means you did not install correctly AJE and HAN patches. If load screens do not show the correct version number the patch IS NOT INSTALLED.
