Re: Where is 1.03 Update?

The last beta patch is still online ftp.ageod.com/pub/WON/WONSetup_publicbeta103_October26th.exe Nikel, Thanks but I won't touch beta patches any longer. AGEOD did a poor job with prior ones and I'm not wasting my time with unofficial patches that create a second version of the program and don't pl...

Where is 1.03 Update?

A couple of weeks ago I saw an unofficial 1.03 update from AGEOD posted on this forum and now it's gone. The message suggested that it went to Matrix but Matrix hasn't released an official 1.03 update yet. Since I discovered too many problems with unofficial AGEOD WoN updates I didn't waste my time ...

Re: Hiding Units

In all this time since Napoleon's Campaigns AGEOD couldn't be bothered to put in a Hide Units key? Having a Hide Units key, like so many other games have, would be so user friendly useful since it would help players avoid accidental mergers of forces, or a mistaken move to an adjacent region if the...

Re: Britain / Portugal / Spain - War and Peace

HHFD50,
I was using the 1.2 version of the game. I haven't checked to see if 1.3 solves this as I've just given up hope of ever playing this poorly done game ever again. The 1.3 update looks absolutely disappointing in that it looks to have fixed very little from reading the description.

British Smuggle Goods RGD Bug

The British Smuggle Goods RGD has a bug in it that allows a British player to smuggle goods into any port, not just French ports or ports of French allies. According to the Smuggle Goods description the only ports that should be eligible for smuggling are ports that are under French control, or unde...

January 1805 French Campaign versus Prussia and Austria

This is the first of 7 episodes showing how I planned out my French side in the January 1805 campaign. I beat both Prussia and Austrian Athena Ignorances by mid October 1805. I show plenty of really poor AI scripting events, plus I tell why they're dumb and what would be smarter scripting. Watch all...

I checked and the depot is built the next turn, it is underneath the counters so you probably have missed it. Also that's normal the Prussian wagons don't disappear, in WON building a depot only cost conscripts, but you need wagons to initiate the building. Pocus, I did mention the depot was built,...

Yes, a great idea and a major diplomacy element missing is Cede Region. It might cost some NM and/or VP's but it would gain popularity with the nation given the region. Plus there should be no casus belli making the deal bad.

The Spanish Ulcer event is a total deal breaker for me.

A shame some of the better ideas don't make it into the game. One thing m...
