I happen to be a meteorologist by profession. So, if AGEOD needs help to make realistic weather tables, I can help.

Voir le ravitaillement dans une zone

Bonjour, j'aime beaucoup les jeux AGE (je joue à RUP et NC en ce moment), et il me semble qu'une voie d'amélioration serait d'améliorer la lisibilité. Face aux montagnes de chiffres indigestes, des indicateurs simples (par ex, les petits points verts indiquant la force d'une pile addition) sont très...

When you buy an AGEOD game on STEAM (like Rise of Prussia), do they link your serial number to a STEAM account (thereby forcing you to have an internet access when re-installing) ?

I'm all for options, so if Steam helps you guys get more exposure (and sales) then great. But, I'm not a fan of Steam at all, and I hope you guys continue to offer products independent of Digital content networks. Choosing Steam is fine, having major publishers putting out games ONLY on Steam drive...

Pourquoi les PC de Davout tombent-ils à 9 si on le détache de la Grande Armée ? N'est-ce pas excessif ?

Points de commandement

Bonjour, Je ne comprends vraiment pas comment sont calculés les points de commandement (PC) des généraux. Le manuel v6.10 dit que "Lorsque plusieurs généraux sont présents dans une même force, leurs points de commandement sont cumulés". Mais ça ne marche pas. Par exemple, prenez le corps de Davout a...

I'm still struggling, but it seems that with all the above information I am making good progress.

Thanks Primasprit and Pocus !

I now seem mostly to have errors because of hundreds of missing values in the CbtSignature column.

What is exactly the nature of this bonus for you, I mean practically on the battleground? Simply, in a napoleonic battle : - a side very weak in cavalry would be unable to pursue (eg Lutzen Bautzen: not a gun taken), would be unable to screen his retreat (turning defeats into routs), would be unabl...

Pocus,

Does the game engine take combined arms into account ?

That is, do the combat routines penalize those who have very little cav, or very little infantry, or artillery ?

help - how to generate leaders

I am trying to generate the files necessary for the game to work with new leader data. I have a modified xls file containing the leaders, which I have saved to CSV format.

Does anyone know what files I must generate with CSVSplitter, in what order, and how ?

Thanks.

Continuing on the thread because some suggested another problem, and I think he's dead correct. There is no way a 100% cavalry force could have defeated a combined arms force in reality. Murat would have been quite helpless against infantry formed in squares, with artillery. Is combined arms taken i...

Not enough room to show round per round the commited forces. An idea would be to add buttons on which you would click to see the details of specific things (in pop-up windows), like committed forces, failed leadership rolls, the pursuit, etc. So that the report would be readable and in a single win...

81% actually, but I missed that ... I now wonder if the combat was not against the 19% outside (this means 25 elements nonetheless), which got butchered by the French cuirassiers, and then Murat ordered a retreat after some hours. Having done significantly more losses, he is credited with a victory...

Not a technical bug so moved to the NCP main forum. What is the shape of your Prussian? Cavalry functions at 50% I believe against fortresses. And it seems you routed. Well-rested and well-fed. My prussian corps have been waiting in Magdeburg for weeks, while Murat has been marching throughout Germ...

Yes but in my case, Magdeburg is being defended by the whole Prussian army and Murat is attacking at less than 1:4 odds (and winning).

French cavalry beating fortress defenders

Doesn't look realistic at all (cavalry climing walls on ladders ?). Ok, in the scenario the Prussian ...

Pas de problème. Vive la simplicité.

Ce qui pose un beaucoup plus gros problème, c'est de voir Nelson avec 70 navires se faire battre par Gravina avec 17 navires. Et cela arrive tout le temps. Je ne connais pas la cause, peut-être la cohésion qui aurait des effets très éxagérés ?
