Re: Should I stay or should I go ?

Try the earlier Napoleon's Campaigns. Less than a £/$/€ (used) on Amazon in UK a few minutes ago and you get a paper manual.

Here's an AAR albeit some pictures don't work now: viewtopic.php?f=138&t=7475

Re: Gettysburg cyclorama building demolished

Well I just played the Gettysburg scenario - albeit on AACW 1.06 - and got a glorious victory as the confederates by occupying Washington rather than Gettysburg having feinted a rush to get those mythical shoes.

Re: How to get a new download for my copy?

I've just played the invasion of England scenario for the first time. I got ashore but was defeated outside London.

Finland and Borodino scenarios

I thought I would fire WON up again and I noticed on my 1.02 new game listing there are two called:

"StrFinland1808DispName" and "StrBorodino1812DispName"

Have I got an unfinished patch or what? There's no description but they start up with some forces allocated.

I visited this in about 1968. Random idling on Wikipedia led me to this - via Mission 66.

Re: DLCs

I have found the Cantabrain War DLC to be a nasty business for Rome. Brutal terrain, too few troops with too many missions coupled with a potentially deadly opponent. It is cheap to buy and offers some really challenging asymmetrical warfare experience. That said, the entire franchise is worth play...

It can't be too hard to get it to display the correct version number can it? Looking in the credits mine still says version 1.0; even though the patch installer said installation successful. God I'm glad you guys don't program avionics; or do you?

Re: Second Post Release Patch

Not enough scenarios - biggest problem of Ageod games

Birth of America had lots of short scenarios. ECW has three medium/long ones, Historical wargaming is a pretty niche market but I feel Ageod restricts the appeal of its games by making them too long, difficult and complicated for casual players. Not everybody is a genius with hours days or weeks to ...

Re: Poll. To be or not to be hexed.

I thought the regions were mostly hexes but with wiggly lines. I think Ageod should produce a wargame construction kit covering lots of eras and with a random scenario generator. The lack of player made scenarios always limits the games in my mind because not everyone wants to play massive campaigns...

Is just playing scenarios - e.g. Borodino any good

Well I thought I might at least give WON small scenarios a go as I never have time or patience for 500 turn games.

I notice the Borodino scenario has no intro text - just says "strxxx" in the selection box. Does it actually play OK or was it a 1.03 add-on that was never finished?

Re: How to destroy Mack in Ulm?

Well I've had another go and I think Mack must have been drinking too much Red Bull. Anyway, he eventually died (probably a heart attack) and overall the French lost 180,000 and the coalition 290,000. A very bloody points win.
