Mmm... Well, I understand the need for diversified gameplay, but I really don't see it fit in the 18th century colonial North America theatre. The whole point of those 3 main wars the game covers is that the commanders had to do with the little they were given, and no more. Hence the real challenge ...

Here you go . Now you've seen it, you'll no longer have to chose ;) And one last thing, both When the Forest Ran Red and The War that made America are quite heavily focused on George Washington. It's not annoying though, as the documentaries are pretty honest with their treatment of the US national...

The first one has the early colonisation by the French, the Seven Years War, the American War of Independance and the War of 1812. So eventualy, you'l...

Thank you both :)

I uploaded a slightly updated version of the file. See my previous post. Also, Hok has acknowledged it, so hopefully if it is approved it should be in a future update.

How to add more unit graphics?

I am trying to add new unit graphics into WIA, in order to have more historically accurate uniforms as well as more variety (to be released if it works of course). Right now, I have made the necessary graphics for most of the different French regiments serving during the FIW. But I am having difficu...

First, allow me to praise the developers of AGEOD who, from BoA onward, have managed to bring me into computer wargaming. And even wargaming at all.

There it is. The unit appeared in April 1758 at Québec, as "reinforcements from the metropole". Both the Irish unit and the supply train were duplicated. In the saved game, one pair is left outside Québec, the other is merged with the city's garrison (I might have saved the turn after doing my movem...

You are most welcome :) While I'm at it, the Irish unit that appears through event I believe in Québec sometime during 1758 poped up duplicated, as well as the supply train unit that comes along. I let this one slip through though so I'll need to check if the saved game backup is still there. In the...

Hi, Playing the FIW grand campaign as the French, with WIA 1.04c. If forgot their respective names, please excuse my ignorance. When the leader of that "Cherokee party" appears in March 1759, the icon on the map doesn't show the same as that in the unit panel, which I believe is the correct one. Her...

Hi, Having played BoA in its time, I now strongly enjoy WIA and all the improvements that came with it :thumbsup: I must admit, though, that I am having trouble understanding one of its features.

I own both The War That Made America and When The Forest Ran Red . While both are pretty good, I'd suggest going for the former. They had a s***load of money to make it, being the one done for the 250th anniversary of the FIW in the US. Hence you get good visuals, real actors, and a fairly good rend...
