Re: Help us test the ECW 1.02 update!

I've had a complete run through all 106 turns of the full campaign with no crashes. This was on a low spec XP laptop - 1.6 ghz, 2 gb ram Intel graphics. It ran really well. I think there is still some funny arithmetic on the money and war supplies calculations - sometimes it seems right other times ...

Re: Help us test the ECW 1.02 update!

I'm playing the Naseby scenario as Royalists, all options set to default. There seems to be some strange results for the money and war supplies display in the top left. Sometimes it seems to add up correctly and display the final amount, other times not. Can somebody else try it and let me know if I...

Re: So nice to be fighting in England, sort of

I agree. There seem to be some real nit pickers over on the Matrix site. It isn't only there and about this game. It seems some people rush to get a new thing just so they can immediately find an error of some sort and shout about it. I don't think I could stand it if I had spent months of work maki...

Re: Traffic penalty?

For the time being given the newness of the game and its small team I would suggest following the manual page 13:

Re: Game still to unbalanced for CSA

Has anybody modded the game so that they feel it gives about 50:50 balance? There are games where you can vary lots of factors for one or more sides so that you get a balance that you the player feels right for your enjoyment, rather than the game maker having to say that's it, no variation.

Does RUS actually work well enough for new players?

I have the game but only ever played the short Finnish and Ice March scenarios. However, I have just recommended the game on today's Financial Times (not a regular source of wargamers I know) because they have quite a long article on the coverage of the revolution. https://www.ft.com/content/c270e00...
