Year of the Four Emperors - How to win over the Danubian Legions?

Make a decision?
Or go there (to which cities then?) with an army and claim the legions?
Or something else? What then?

How should I do this in practical terms? (Currently playing as Vitellius and enjoy this game greatly.)

Any excellent modern literature on the subject that you can recommend?

In particular, regarding 2nd or 3rd century AD.

Well, for better or worse, 'dry' is part of the charm of what we AGEOD fans enjoy about their games. So many studios put out games that are more style than substance. AGEOD does the opposite. Their games are as close to the old board games of old as one can get. So the high budget stuff like cut sc...

I would certainly not hope so. After all, Marc Antony is a Latin-American artist who used to be married to Jennifer Lopez, right? Not a Roman general married to Cleopatra, an Egyptian queen... I guess (or at least hope) that comparison settles it... :)

Wow, finally one of AGEOD's games taking place in antiquity! Ever since Great Invasions, I have been waiting for this. And during ancient Rome, even better as my favourite period. Purchased it today (Praetor version) and had a look. It looks super! Just waiting until 19th of September so that I can ...

Slow scroll when fully zoomed out

Just started the game to have a look. Looks splendid, one thing I noted though is that scrolling the map when fully zoomed out is VERY SLOW. Anything I can do myself to improve that (other than buying a new computer)? Any settings anywhere, etc.?

Hello again,

I can now see from the "Patch 1.07c online for AGEOD players" thread that there is a 1.07c official mod version. (Stupid me...)

Could I install this one on my 1.06 and be back at 1.07c? Or should I simply do it all again, i.e., uninstall, reinstall GI1.07c + mod1.07c?

Which version after Official Mod (and Jmass graphical mod)?

Hello, I upgraded to v1.07c and thereafter installed the Official Mod (1.06a on the great-invasions.fr web site). The game now shows 1.06. Do this mean that I'm now back to version 1.06, i.e., that all changes in 1.07c have been removed? Should I have done the installations in a different order? On ...

Many thanks for your answer. I received a message: "XXX has died in YYY." for two ERE generals, in different provinces. But it is not so much that the general died.

Army vanishes when general dies?

I had assembled a fairly large ERE army in order to teach the Huns a lesson. However, when the army's general died (out of a random event, I guess), the whole army disappeared and I was left with nothing! :grr:

Is this a bug or is it deliberate?

Better to annex them. One problem less. But then it is good to have a bulwark/cushion between your own territory and the Alans or Huns. :tournepas
