Looks like a typo in the original file. I'll fix it with the new version (to be released with the next patch).

Thanks everybody for the positive feedback. Don't hesitate to contact me if you find mistakes in the manual, or think about ways of improving it.

Great job on the manual. Not to nitpick but . . .

1) Is the engineer/fort defender cumulative as it states on pg. 32 or does only the c-in-c have that affect as it seems to say on pg. 35-37? Ditto for siege expert, although I don't remember there being that many leaders w/ that attribute.

2) Seems like patriot/master driller/pontoneer attributes should be under subordinate leader special abilities on pg. 35. Either that or just make sure your patriot leader is stack commander or alone prior to raising militia turns.

3) In a stack w/ Abercromby (may have been Braddock) commanding and Wolfe as a subordinate, I'm sure I saw surpriser under list of attributes affecting combat results. Was that an error or did it actually have effect on combat?

Thanks again for such a great game and support.

Wonderful! I was amazed there were still so many things I didn't know or had
forgotten about. A great game. :coeurs:

Many thanks for the revised manual. There is an awful lot going on "under the hood" that I had not picked up on. The new manual does a great job of explaining the mechanics of supply, zones-of-control, and the effects of loyalty and military control. All of which make the gameplay much more enjoyable.

Your great support of the game is much appreciated.

I found one 'itsy bitty' error in the new manual; in discussing the Iroquois neutrality/alignment it refers to the 1755-1783 time period.

It should be the 1755-1763 period.
