Yup, I sentried him but then took it off. Doesn't matter, he is ALWAYS invisible in the NO region. He isn't inside the structure but the minute you click somewhere else he just vanishes.

Bug - loyalty

Might have already been brought up but in the Ledger under Loyalty it is using Rivers when determining lowest loyalty in the region. Seems that they are all Anti-CSA as well with their 0% Loyalty and all, lol ;-) Also, I posted another "bug" in the Technical forum regarding no force icon and the onl...

I will post a Screenshot to show what I mean. I have a force in NO but there is no way to see it or access it. I had to finally go to the ledger, find the General that is commanding them, click on it and it showed up. Right click on the map they disappear again. They are there but there is NO visual...

Even without ROE, I use assault command very, very rarely. If you get caught in a unexpected situation, the results can be disasterous.

There seems to be a problem when two generals become eligible for promotion on the same turn.

They were just close together one east and west of chattanooga but they are in different states. I mentioned it because I didn't see the one east of Chattanooga on a couple of maps I was looking at from the era.

In my current PBEM game I have taken a transport cruise down around towards Chattanooga and I passed by a Decaturville, then a Decatur and there is another Decatur if you follow the river around.

If it is already known, sorry. If not I will get a screenshot when I fire the game up shortly.
