Re: Crash to Desktop

After playing the game for more than a year, I am suddenly getting this error message. It generally comes as the game starts to process the turn. I'm playing on steam, so I'm not sure if I'm able to try any of the solutions suggested here.

Stonewall Won't Go

My nephew and I are playing our first game of AACWII, after waging numerous campaigns of the original. I just ran into something I can't find an explanation for. Playing as the Confederates I'm looking to reinforce my forces in Tennessee and freed up Stonewall Jackson's division. But when I try to m...

I haven't seen this covered. Should elite brigades, like the Iron Brigade, the California Brigade, etc be merged into divisions, remain independent within a Corps or allowed to operate on their own? What do you find works best?

Okay, found the right spot in the manual, and as you said it's a 5% per point bonus. So if Slocum is a 3-3-3 the division he leads as a corps leader would get a 15% boost. But if that division is turned over to any 3-1-1 general, the bonus would be 20% (15% from Slocum, 5% from div gen)?? Do I under...

Also -- the leader you want to turn into a corps commander cannot have an attached division - if he has one, you need to empty him first. Is this correct? I transferred Slocum's (promoted to 2 stars) division to a Corps led by Crittenden, and Slocum took over command of the Corps (because of higher...
