Re: ECW applying patch

You can install the core game and then the 1.03a patch. The 1.03a patch is comprehensive.

(after installing version I.03 is correct)

Well' I'm very impressed with WoS... still learning

I'm just starting but I have to say that I really like what I see with this game so far. The game looks great and is much larger than I expected. 2 games in one IMHO. My limited knowledge of the era is a challenge but like most Ageod games it's got me interested and is forcing me to learn. Consideri...

Re:Resolved: I'm thinking about picking this up but need to ask how smooth is it running?

Ok I bought it and installed.... running fine :) slight hesitation first time around the map but after that scrolls very fast at least for me...

Nice looking game

Re: I'm thinking about picking this up but need to ask how smooth is it running?

I assume you have selected the game option to reduce memory demand and winter maps and such. This is not a monster game, just covers a lot of potential territory. Each scenario is pretty contained. Thanks Durk... I always keep winter maps on because I'll forget and get every body killed. (what I di...

I'm thinking about picking this up but need to ask how smooth is it running?

Hi again,


The Big Map has me concerned. I can play 30 Years War and CW II fine but I've avoided the monsters like TEAW and WON. I've got 1 gig of video ram.

I love Ageod but sometime they run a little slow on my machine; mostly map scrolling.

Thanks for any help! :)

Re: Poll. To be or not to be hexed.

I think it is important that regions or hex sides are considered. Some games only use the hex or region terrain. Other games consider the hex/region side you are crossing; mountains could be the dominate land feature coming into a hex from the west which would cost more movement points or take longe...

Re: How do I 'get ahead' with my economy?

First thing to check is the options screen and see if automatic replacements is on .... turn it off.

War Supplies are tight in this game and the automatic replacement options spends too much. With it off you can prioritize what you need as there is never really enough.

Re: Poll. New engine first game.

Since I had doubts about the old engine doing Wars of Napoleon I never purchased it. So my vote is for Wars of Napoleon 2.

Tough choice though because a new area like East Asia.... Rise of the Middle Kingdom or Sengoku Jidai would be my dream games.

Re: (BOR - Punic Wars) Roman Consuls Won't Fail Activation Rolls

I checked HAN scenario 3 second Punic war 219 and it looks like the bug may be there also. I ran 13 quick turns and no consul failed an activation. It may also effect 3 star leaders because Bagga and Syphas (Mauretania) also seem to be active. I did notice some lower rank leaders failing activations.

Re: Will the new engine significantly raise minimum pc specs?

My Ge-Force GTX 650 1GB ram is my concern; even current Ageod games are calling for 1 GB video ram.

(I have an additional shared 3 GB but I don't think that counts)

My other specs are not too bad but not really mid range anymore:

Windows 8.1
AMD 6300 six core 3.50 ghz
16 GB ram
