Thanks Orso. I have noticed you can drag and drop on an enemy but i've seen the problems you mention. I was hoping maybe there was some secret order I didn't know about that worked better. Thanks though.

(anything out of place like this or modern looking leader portraits (worse Kirk Douglas) leads to a loss of immersion for me). AJE is a fine map though - as long as a map is not pointlessly 3D I'm happy. Then you should really like the commander in charge of the Union force at Ft. Laramie when the ...

I have Win7 6.1. It wouldn't surprise me if it was Win causing this.

A few problems with 1.17

I've been having some serious problems with the new patch. I played through with the CSA and nothing I couldn't handle. But now i just got to Late October 1862 as the USA and unfortunately it was the best game i've played with the USA so far in years and it's done with now. For some reason I can't c...

That's exactly why he was known as "Little Napoleon" but without the tactical prowess.

^^^ haha i do that too. So for me it's an endless cycle of playing and winning as CSA and then doing the same as USA and the cycle continues. It's definitely good practice. I know some people here have said they strictly play as only one side but I want to experience everything the game has to offer.
