Re: Favorite AGEOD games

CWII and TEAW (and not the ultimate mod!) are real favorites. TEAW needs updating, perhaps a new version as was done with CW. So much potential. Both of these are so much better as PBEM. The current AI just does so many odd seemingly random things. I have English Civil War, Wars of Napoleon, Thirty ...

Re: Another Mantuan event question

So no one reads C.V. Wedgwood's The Thirty Years War anymore? It's Copyrighted 1938 I know. It was the main text we used when I was in college (last century). Still a classic from defenestration to the Peace of Westphalia.

Re: Poll. New engine first game.

To End All Wars is a real favorite but it needs so much polishing to be all it can be. What a great opportunity to do that and implement the new engine. But wait, I've been an analyst/developer of several very large defense systems in a past life and there can be so many pitfalls and stumbles. On se...

Re: Play by Email Problems

That's what I thought. Yes, we have the same settings. We made sure of that before we started the game. Is there something about using this small scenario as opposed to one of the grand games?

I've played Civil War II by e-mail several times and never had a problem. But playing EAW via email has been a continuous problem. We are trying to play one of the simpler scenarios, the Tannenberg 1914 scenario. I know we are following the instructions in the game manual. Has something changed? Doe...

Re: What do you have to do to get a major victory?

Ahh, I forgot to say that my NM was 107 to the Protestants 29, although mine had been as high as 137. It just kept dropping due to "War Weariness" I suppose. Protestant land combat power was 0 for many turns. My men lost was 108987 to the Protestant 219752. At one point I had 300 prisoners...
