Re: Returning to the game...

Unfortunately even with cavalry chits in reserve, they still seem to be stuck in the loop. I don't even buy cavalry brigades as these never activate...very strange. However, single regiments seem to manage to come together, especially at the beginning of the game. Re partisans, I need to reassess my...

Returning to the game...

Returned to the game after a long time and need some heads up. Playing as the Reds... 1) What can I do about those divisions which I recruit and remain 'stuck', never becoming active because the cavalry regiment doesn't finish training? 2) Do some of the Red generals get promoted? I've seen Shaposhn...

Back at playing AJE... Caesar against Pompey

Returning to the game after a long hiatus....

Playing the Caesar-Pompey Civil War. There was a way in which Caesar could rapidly conquer Spain. What was it? Destroying all the mobile forces of the enemy? Or was it conquering certain strategic points?

Any ideas?

Re: Confusing Swedish Happening

Lend-Lease stacks are per treaty, and AFAIK and would expect, the treaty recipient will control those units for as long as the treaty is in affect. Were you able to control Swedish units prior to Sweden surrendering? I played the French side most, but expeditionary forces and fleets are permanent a...

Re: Confusing Swedish Happening

I had something similar happening with the Spanish. As France, one can actually take over the Spanish Fleet when allied at the beginning of the game. However, even when France turns upon the Spanish, the Spanish fleet that was taken over by the French, remains in French possession. It gradually with...

Re: French Strategy in Spain

Thanks Durk. In an indirect way you answered my question. Therefore Spain will remain a drain and the Franco-Spanish faction only a rather minor ally. Conquering the whole Peninsula doesn't turn it Ftanco-Spanish. Oh well, the die is cast and therefore I'll just pummel the Spanish until they give up...

Re: French Strategy in Spain

If you liberate the Franco-Spanish faction, in the past this meant basically giving them Madrid. Basically what I'm asking is related to what happens if as the French, you conquer the Iberian Peninsula. Do the conquered provinces become Franco-Spanish? Or do such provinces remain just occupied Frenc...

Hi Durk Playing against the AI. Actually I already invaded Spain, so that is not the main issue. However, the best strategy to follow as the French invader is a bit murky in my mind. If I remember well, the Franco-Spanish faction gets only Madrid. However, if you conquer the whole Peninsula, does th...

French Strategy in Spain

So as the French, one gets the 'opportunity' to take over Spain. However, I'd like some opinions on the best way to deal with this theatre. In one of the information screens, you are told that conquering all cities in the Iberian peninsula, you would obtain a major victory. However, does this mean t...

And in the initial Prussian campaign, it seems that the 'Promise support' function in the diplomacy section is missing... but this may be something strange in my game.

Re: Carrying troops

Check the unit you want to load for its weight (one of the stats there is when you mouse over any land unit). If it is inferior or equal to the transport capacity of a given ship, then it can be loaded.

How will sieges play out?

Can happen anywhere. Just make sure that the training officer is the most senior in the stack (ie the first one) and then they start upgrading. Once they are veteran/elite, they don't upgrade anymore
