Playing as Ottomans in single player, I have noticed that under 1.03 there are now Timar garrison infantry in the force pool. However, in a PBEM started under an earlier version, but now patched to 1.03, they do not appear (that game is about ten weeks further along than the single player). Hence, a...

I got it working. The problem is that the updater likes to put the update in the 32 bit program area instead of 64 bit. But given my long experience with the strange places AGEOD games get put on Windows 10, I figured it out!

In a PBEM as Western Whites, I noticed that when I created the Sevastopol Great HQ, and Wrangel was appointed to lead it, unlike other GHQ he does not have a training ability. Is this intended or a bug? This is late 1919, before any events involving him (I think later in the game he has some events ...
