Pre-order bonus. I believe the plan is to release it as DLC later.

AI doesn't properly understand possibility of victory?

Just playing the Spartacus scenario, and it's possible to 'intimidate' the AI (e.g. bottling up in Tarentum) with an army with a large 'power' rating. Even though if the AI actually attacked, they would destroy that slave army. I'm wondering if the AI uses the power rating to determine success odds....

I'm having similar issues with this scenario. I assume it's because slaves are 'worthless' units compared to those invincible legionaries, losses of which cause horror to all Rome.

As you can see from your order number, Ageod is a small company. Give them a day to fix your problem before you condemn them as terrible :)

Hmm... so what's the rationale for this again? Why isn't there a tooltip with the 'actual' supply level?

Well, FPS changes only during map scrolling. When you don't scroll you have static image and FPS doesn't change. It is at 25 FPS, 20ms in zoom-out and 25 FPS, 5ms in zoom-in mode. Regarding video mode, it could be reason but then why I don't have same issue with other Ageod titles? I've just tried ...

Books to read - fiction or non-fiction

Happily, this is being released just as I'm rereading the Masters of Rome series, which I am enjoying hugely. Although it may not be military enough for some people's tastes...

Does anyone else have any suggestions?

You can be entrenched either inside or outside. Sorry if I don't perceive the problem ?? The French had just arrived the previous turn; they had 100% entrenchment. I thought that 100% entrenchment was the same as the maximum that could be achieved in a level 1 fort? Why were they entrenched so much...

Entrenchments - bug? Or misreading?

I just fought a battle where I (English) moved out of Fort Oswego to attack a French army outside (i.e. I dragged the army out and set them to offensive). This resulted in the attached battle screen, where the French are listed as having '100' for entrenchment. I thought this level was only if they ...

Control

I'm playing PBEM in the French & Indian War now, and it's frustrating how difficult it is to get control over territories (some of which historically had no Europeans in them at all) to ensure safe retreats. I seem to need almost every French unit I possess to grab control quickly; it's almost nicer...

It looks like only part of this fix has made it into 1.13 (only the 1755 Campaign, and not 1756/Montcalm).
