Re: Graphics issues

I was always quite pleased with the map art in AGEOD games. Nevertheless, as a change of pace, I really enjoy the map for ECW. For some reason, it seems to fit the topic excellently. My congratulations to the artist!

Re: Combat Stance not showing in ECW

If you mean the Battle Planner, you have to go to the "Options" menu from the Main menu, then, under the "Game" tab turn on the Battle Planner. Had me confused for a bit too.

Re: running very slowly

Thanks Leibst! Raising the LogBatch figure to 250 seems to have done the trick. The game appears to run comparably to other AGEOD games now.

Re: running very slowly

Changing that entry from "10" to "100" made a major difference. The game still is somewhat jerky compared to other AGEOD games, and rarely does a single mouse click register--it takes two or more clicks to get the interface to respond. But it's vastly better than it was. I hope t...

Re: running very slowly

I'm not impatient. I understand that a just-released game can have undiscovered bugs. I simply wanted to let you know that, for me, the current problem renders the game unplayable. I imagine that you folks will be able to fix it--as I said, I do not have this problem with any other AGEOD game, so it...

running very slowly

Hi Folks, I got the game and installed the patch, but the game is so slow that it's basically unplayable. Zooming in and out takes forever, cycling thru the stacks is like trying to run in molasses. Even trying to return to the main menu is a chore. I end up using Ctrl-Alt-Del to get to the task man...

Yes, Dominions does have a good approach, giving the player the chance to issue some pre-battle instructions, then having the battle play out automatically. Of course, the new system in this game, with the player choosing a deployment and a battle plan is similar, and also seems to give the player s...

Excellent point. I've felt this way for a long time. In fact, even in games which do combine a strategic/operational layer with playable battles, I always let the AI run the battles. I do this for exactly the reasons you cite. Generally, a decent human can always run rings around a tactical AI after...

I think it's an excellent game. Civil War II has the benefit of being older and, therefore, having received more post-release attention, but all AGEOD games [as well as most others] go thru this process. Thirty Years War is a strong title, and will only improve as remaining issues are addressed. I'm...

Can't upgrade

I have a problem with patches for two AGEOD games: Thirty Years War, and Wars of Napoleon. I try to keep my "C" drive from getting overloaded, so I install programs to my "D" drive. All of my AGEOD games are on that drive. AJE, CWII, PoN, RUS, and RoP all update perfectly. However, TTY and WoN won't...

Yes, when you click on the middle icon, you will see cards, e.g., "Dip on Brand." Choose a card and drag-and-drop it onto the Diplomatic box. They affect the attitude of of the power toward you, altho how and to what degree is somewhat a mystery.

Click on the middle of the three icons in the upper-left corner--the one that looks like a couple of playing cards. The Decision options will appear along the bottom of the screen, and are scrollable sideways.

As I understand it, no matter what the VP difference, if one does not break the enemy's morale, one can not do better than a marginal victory. Of course, one would think that taking all the objective would have a serious effect on enemy morale, but I guess it wasn't enough to break them. By the way,...
