Move big armies in stages, that is withdraw forces that are small enough not to create traffic jams that effectively prevent any movement. A 1500 power stack should be OK moving across two or three turns. 17th Century armies generally lacked mobility when in great numbers and tended to travel in for...

@ Vaalen, What directory do you install the game in? I believe that it defaults to install itself in the C:\Program Files or c:\Program Files (x86) folders. In my experience, putting WW1G in either of those folders practically guarantees issues even if you can get it to run at all. If you have insta...

This sounds about right, my understanding was that the last "official" patch was "P" and that "Q" appeared only here. Checking the version on the Matrix/Slitherine page for WW1G, the last official patch is "v1.08 I" which is clearly an error and indicates the total indifference demonstrated towards ...

To be honest, I really have very little interest in Belisarius or his era as a subject however I will certainly buy any DLC for the AJE franchise. Much preferred from my desk would be the Gallic wars or Octavian's civil wars as suggested above or turning back the clock to the Peloponnesian or Persia...

The other side isn't any better and we've probably all thought something similar at one time or another. Remember that a 35% chance of success equals a 65% chance of failure every time. The laws of probability and chance will rule regardless of how your faction preys.

Third time's a charm. Downloaded the update again and installed over a fresh, unpatched TYW installation again. All now working as planned so looks to have been a possible corrupt download. Thanks to all concerned.

How many impedimenta is avaiable per scenario ? I guess this number is fixed per the one we start with + we can recruit ?

I can confirm that after applying the update, there are no Catholic units available to build when starting a new Grand Campaign. And I did delete the Units and Models *.cfg files before installing the update (always a good habit when patching AGEOD games).
