Returning to the game... and an Arty question.

Hi all, I bought the game last year, and was making good progress but then work forced me to put all war game activities to the side. So I am now back and have been playing the Shiloh scenario as the US. But I have yet to get better than a minor defeat. Even if I go over to a full out move to toward...

CW2 stopped working message

After that CW2 begins to load, gets to the 52% loading textures (or therabouts) and then a message pops up indicating the CW2 has stopped working. No errors, not explanation. ...

Finding units that just are forming up or just finished forming up

Is there a way to get a list of units that you have forming up or that have just finished forming up this turn? I often find myself scratching my head trying to remember when I have units forming up and especially the units that have just completed forming up at the beginning of the turn. I can (and...

Re: More beginner questions on forming Corps and Divisions

There are divisions, but they are then organized into two corps. So, armed with this information, I restarted the 1862:West scenario. The starting date is Early Feb, 1862. I see that in Montgomery, TN there is the Army of the Ohio and two corps (left Wing and Right wing). The corps both show the dia...
