Re: CEAW 4.0 final PC version download

Umm, where is the DL link for that Slitherine release?

And I remember that bug. Plaid and I reported it at the end of our beta test campaign. We did indeed have that Egyptian partisans message, and I think a couple in Vichy French North Africa, as well.

Re: CEAW 4.0 final PC version download

The link at the top of this thread is the latest version, correct?

Re: Great work ! Many thanks !

Thank you for the reply. We started a new game with the 4.0 update, played two turns and then got an error massage that the file was an older version. I had that happen to me a couple times during my most recent 4.0 beta PBEM game, and each time I just re-downloaded my opponent's turn, restarted CE...

Oye, rodri, si queres probar esto contra un enemigo humano, me alegro jugar te.

Re: Possible 4.029 Glitch

I've seen message "Partisans in Egypt" in recent PBEM game, while Allies controlled both Kuwait and Cairo. No actual partisan unit has spawned though. Have seen messages about Vichy partisans aswell (nowhere to be found on the field too). I am Plaid's Allied opponent in this game. I am still using ...

Flummox -

Sadly, no. In all the moving about and such, I lost my old archives, and I no longer have a copy of this mod.

Re: Legion Arena Same problem, shuts down after intro

Hey, Harilas Nice to meet you :) I sometimes still get notifications of posts in old threads I was watching years ago, when I was very active here at these forums, (which says good things about the continuity and dependability of Slitherine), but this has to be a record, six years and three months. ...

Sad... Part of the problem is that LA is so old and the community is made of me, you, pgeerkens and Iain, whom we've had pulled in. :-D But otoh, once I'll find a strength and time to mod, I'll definitely perpetrate something. It's just like my Panzer General campaigns - I'll do them even there won...

Re: Britannicus, a Legion Arena Mod

Yeah, that project died for lack of enthusiasm. I realized while creating the third group of 4 scenarios that I'd painted myself into a corner.

If I ever take that up again, I'll need to go back to the drawing board and re-do my outline.

Re: Scenario Editing

Aleksandr, I looked at this issue a long time ago, and decided that using an existing scenario structure was the course of least resistance. IIRC the maplocks are ugly. I don't suggest messing with any of the three .txt files in the DB directory. You''re right, 40 scenarios is a lot. I took them in ...

Re: End of Game Army Composition

I'm not against hard scenarios, but well, from what I've learned as a campaign designer, dungeon keeper, story teller, etc., you just can't make the start too difficult, unless you really wish to discourage (read: piss) the players. I totally agree, and I wrestled with this a lot when designing the...

Re: End of Game Army Composition

I experimented with one unit of Triarii as a dedicated anti-cavalry unit, and I didn't like it. If I'm going to create a specialized clear-terrain anti-cavalry unit, I will use Praetorians. My problem with Triarii is that they just don't get enough kills to advance very quickly. I think this has to ...

Re: End of Game Army Composition

Well, Aleks, that's certainly interesting, and you are playing on Very Hard, where I've never really gone; I have to respect you very much for that. With Legion Arena now relegated to the category of "Classic Games" (i.e. moldy oldies), I'd have to say you are now the foremost practitioner of this g...

Well, that's interesting, you've certainly ended with a very elite force there. Although, I must politely disagree on the heavy infantry. I think they have their place. So have you played the CoM add-on campaign? I'd be very interested to see how the endgame army posted above would fare in CoM. Yea...

I finally found the right force mix and strategy to reliably (> 50%) win Lucius' Ambush on Very Hard.
Wow, that is impressive! My hearty congratulations. Personally, I never had much success on Very Hard :)

Re: Cavalry Tactics

While we're on the subject, did you ever check out my Britannicus Mod for Legion Arena? It's not really a mod, in the sense of changing game mechanics, but rather a replacement Celtic campaign. I based it upon a brief passage in "Claudius The God" by Robert Graves, (the sequel to "I, Claudius"), in ...

Whoa, necro is right, you revived this beast from three years ago :) I honestly haven't played Legion Arena/COM for over a year; I should dig it out and dust it off. That and Spartan/Gates of Troy were my two favorite Slitherine games of all time. I have been playing a long, slow PBM game of GS-modd...
