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...

There's lots of info at the Battlefield Trust website - including a map showing the roads at the time and the boggy marshy areas that meant a long trudge from say Kings Lynn to Boston.

Thanks Leibst. I am looking forward to this game. I suggested to someone at the English Civil War museum in Newark that they mention Pike And Shot. You might get in touch and see if they are interested.

Please check mix of towns and counties .

There's a post in the Matrix forum pointing out strange language and wording on the game. "" Product page: "From Scotland to Dover, from Wales to Kent the counties raise their regiments" That text is just plain weird. Of those places, only Kent is a county, and Dover is within Ke...

Re: Fun playing 1.06d and randomised generals

Re: RoP nostalgia

Is this nostalgia for Rise of Prussia or Napoleon's Campaigns as some replies mention Spanish Ulcer scenario - although some 300 turns it rather stretches the definition of scenario? Anyway, I just accept that in Ageod games you are Napoleon unable to intervene in what Grouchy is doing on the right ...

Re: City Flags

Can someone kindly remind me what minor edits I have to make to stop the animated flags which I find very distracting (a bit like those jumping emojis too).

I think there was a settings file that you edit the flag speed in.

Re: units disappearing version 102

Does this help - as with FOTN I have just compared a scenario in 1.01 and 1.02.

In the big scenario - whole war, playing as the Nationalists. In Burgos:

1.01 the garrison has Sagardia with a portrait
1.02 Sagardia has no portrait

In 1.02 I now have 6 commandante Ferrandi in Bilbao ! (3 in reserva vasca, 3 in other units) In 1.01 it is no Ferrandi but reserva vasca has ...
