Re: What it was really like

For those wanting to look them up, these are the famous engravings by Jacques Callot titled Les Grandes Misères de la guerre , or "The Great Miseries of War." It is fitting that right after Plate 17, the second-to-last plate which shows desperate peasants murdering some soldiers who were s...

Traffic penalty?

In the Game Options screen, the mouse-over text for Traffic Penalty says, If active, then moving too many units in a given region within the same turn will provoke a traffic slowdown. The penalty can be set to low, medium or high depending of the cursor position. The slider has five positions. I ass...

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

I was surprised to see some people complaining about map inaccuracies over in the Matrix forum, specifically how the regions didn't match the true county borders, and only the larger cities are included. I suppose that it would be fun to have the Roundheads and Cavaliers fighting in the fields just ...

Re: Steam Release?

AGEOD usually gives out Steam keys when a game is added there, right? I don't see why anyone would wait for a Steam release before buying.

Re: running very slowly

I've had the same problem, but not to the same extent. It is still playable, but it is significantly slower than the other games. Also, I installed the game on my SSD, but I still hear the hard drive being used quite frequently. (My home directory is on the hard drive.) I see that the game is consta...

Re: Quebec ownership?

Yes, I noticed that it has no effect on the scenario. It is just bizarre to see a Prussian flag there. :laugh:

Quebec ownership?

I started playing Scenario no. 13, the campaign from 1762 to 1764, and was surprised when I noticed that Quebec was owned by the Prussians instead of the British, who historically controlled the city after the Battle of Quebec in September of 1759. I checked the other scenarios and saw that they wer...

If so, where can it be found?


QF2 is an attachment to the first post of this thread. I applied 1.10e and then QF2, and the game works fine for me. I don't know if it is required, though.

Re: East Prussia 1914 scenario, negative victory points?

I tried the above advice and discovered the following: Solitaire: When playing the scenario solitaire, the victory points are tabulated correctly. High difficulty: There is no difference, either playing as Russia or Germany. Poor play: I have tried to play as poorly as possible, but the AI immediate...

Re: To wet the ECW appetite.....

I am looking forward to seeing what music is included in the soundtrack of this game. In the meantime, and also to whet the appetite, here is The Druids performing a famous Cavalier song "When the King Enjoys His Own Again." Lyrics: What booker can prognosticate? or speak of our kingdom's ...

East Prussia 1914 scenario, negative victory points?

I've been trying the easy East Prussia 1914 scenario and noticed that in all games, the other side, no matter who I play, always loses with negative thousands of victory points. Is this deliberate to make the scenario easy to play, or is it a bug?
