Narwhal and One Armed Mexican identify what is wonderful about the Ageod system. ACW is a perfect platform for this system. PON is not an ageod fan based game. Too much work, not enough battle. WW2 has so many titles and is not suited to ageod's good leadership model. ACW can develop from current ga...

Phil and team.
The genius of your games is the command with movement.

In my view, the 30 Years War is the next project. If not, then the English Civil War.
Much more modern, leadership not so important. And movement is dictated by the opponent.

I might be interested if no raiding except in areas where both sides have at least one division or leader. In other words, in contested states. Not just raiding romps through places no raiders would ever go.
If this is ok, we can chat or play.

The silence on your post must mean no leader database.
No biographies for the game.
WIA or BOA2 may not need a leader database as much. Leaders do not change qualities as they advance. They do change qualities upward for success, but never a loss for as promotion.

The auto extract should place it in the right folder, if not it unzips into the main WIA folder.

One lovely thing about all of the AGEOD games is they provide historical parameters, but not deterministic controls.

Two separate issues: NM should be responsive to loss of strategic cities. I have never seen a situation when you take a city you do not gain, and the opponent lose, NM. Perhaps in some instances you do not actually gain control. You have to have a 'regular' unit to control the city. To check this, l...

In all scenarios, you get regular reinforcement which, as you surmise, you only find out about by playing that scenario. These units are typically turn dependent, but in several occasions they are dependent upon your action or your enemy's actions. You will be able to keep track. Typically no hints....

I am not sure I am a more seasoned campaigner, but I have some experience with assaults. The impact of artillery and other special ability units and leaders helps.

You should have a folder called Config Utility in your start menu WIA file on your main menu.
It is two tabs, display and serial. Click on the serial tab. Put your serial number on this screen.
