For every three experience stars, the strategic rating increases by 1. To a maximum of 6.


Hi Rod, do you have a Save in which we could see this as an example?

Re: Stopping CSA Leakers

First assure that your game settings only give the AI a small detection advantage. The AI plans with what it "sees", and if it sees a bunch of un-garrisoned locations way back in your hinterland, Athena is likely to go for one or two, which is actually illogical, unless it's maybe Pittsbur...

Re: A few various brainstorms

Re: Filling Gaps in the Manual

Re: System Settings

IIRC texture size is the amount of memory (probably graphics memory) allocated for pre-staging textures, ie all the map region textures. It should making scrolling across the map work quicker, in that textures do not have to be loaded on the fly.

Re: Mouse Sensitivity

AGEod does not have it's own mouse settings. What ever you have set in Windows is what you are using in the game.

If you have a Logitech mouse, you can have different settings for when playing CW2 than the default, but I don't know that you can do that with Windows alone.

Pocus already said something about only doing database changes for that, so no changes in the engine.
