IIRC, this and Rise of Prussia are the only AGEOD games purchased outside of the AGEOD/Matrix store (and I have purchased beaucoup games from both over the years). I will purchase directly from the publisher sites in the future though :bonk: Btw, I have not purchased any game from the Steam site.

Well, the response from Matrix customer support for me follows: "Unfortunately these were not sold by the Slitherine Group. Unfortunately Paradox sold the Alea Jacta Est games as retail editions and on Gamersgate and other stores. They did not provide Ageod or ourselves with the records for these, s...

Purchased direct from Amazon. Have not been able to register serial number w/ Matrix either. IIRC, AGEOD provided a separate (from Matrix) update link in the past as a workaround for this issue. Will try the Matrix support ticket routine.

I am afraid that at higher levels it messes movement in wild and uncivilised regions, for examples the ones the Ottomans operate. The game already portrays movement in these areas unrealistically slow, we need to make sure it does not become worse because of traffic. I suggest you use a low-mid val...

How does the AI cope? I tried it short term to try movements (without AI interfetence) and the rest is speculation. Does it waste cohesion! Or is it adjusted to be more economical? I don't know the details re: the AI, etc. But I have received the traffic message in the message log and noticed signi...

I agree that the current beta battle results seem too excessive.

That being said, I do appreciate AGEOD's history of listening to player concerns a...

I believe that it impacts on movement efficiency but I (we all) need some additional detail from the developer on this. I currently have it set to the lowest setting and have seen messages referring to it, particularly Serbian troop movements.

Even including wounded, the casualties listed in the examples given by Ajarnlance are too high when compared to WWI actual battles. Casualties (killed, wounded and missing) given in the examples taken from the game (90-136k for the Allies and 60-84k for the Central Powers) are simply too high for t...

Two Quick Questions..

1. How do I disable the Tutorial messages at the beginning of each new turn? I probably missed something here but its getting annoying.

2. Under some units' morale, I see the term "Very". What does Very mean?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the continued updates. One question..under combat power, what do the two numbers relate to, i.e., ?/?. IIRC, a red number is less and green number is more power than the AI.

Thanks for the new beta. One comment..the emphasis on weak vs. strong counters on map is welcomed. However, my old eyes have a problem seeing the white (strong) numbers on the light grey Confederate background.

For the aggregated power value, we will make that optional, some of the betas already expressed they preferred the old way.


I initially preferred the old way too. But after some time w/ 1.03, I kinda like the aggregated power values now.
