Re: Ambush battles?

There already are some among the user created scenarios. Also the baggage protection scenario is an ambush scenario.

Re: My Poorly Armed Rabble is stronger than it should

I feel like it's not completely based on size since a unit of 20 elephants definitely contribute more than 1% score. It is based on UnitSize, not TotalMen, Elephants have a UnitSize of 400. They then (like cavalry) get a 3/2 multiplier. This means they are the same % for rout purposes as a 600 Unit...

Re: My Poorly Armed Rabble is stronger than it should

To me rout buffer seems more realistic than throw-away infantry. At least some "barbarian" armies had non-combatants acting as cheering squad and spectators. Some high medieval peasant infantry probably had pretty much similar role in practice. When there have been very low quality units in ancient...

Re: A Little Suggestion Regarding the Game's Shadows

Thanks for the suggestions.

Are you suggesting the option to turn off the shadows for the men? I suspect that would look even more odd.

Re: My Poorly Armed Rabble is stronger than it should

I was assuming that rout % was calculated using unit value not nr of men.. they don't count much then! Plus if any enemy cav catches or fire at them they're lost.... It is based on the size of the unit rather than the points value, otherwise it would be viable to use cheap units as suicide troops t...

Re: Updated user manual?

The manual has not been updated. We plan to do so at some time in the future, but we don't want to do it repeatedly, so we are waiting till more of the DLCs have been done. In the meantime, all of the changes can be found in the PatchNotes.rtf document in the main directory of the game build. This c...

Re: My Poorly Armed Rabble is stronger than it should

Actually it's their purpose to stay at full size in the rear far away from the frontline all the time. In this way they add to the percentage share of all the forces commited to the battle at a low cost. When units at the front are routing it has now less effect on the army morale at whole. I was a...

Re: some questions?

Thank you for pointing this out. But I understood you can't correct this: If you "correct" the manual, it will be even worse, as it will be a lie. The french game must be patched firstly. The french manual tells the truth, but the truth of the french game is bad as keys can't be reassigned. True. I...

Keyboard shortcuts are listed in section 25 of the manual. In French manual, this is in Section 23 (page 88), and they are wrong (exerpt): " A – fait défiler la carte vers la gauche.

Re: Autodeploy out of deploy zone

Does the autodeploy function still work? I am missing its use in multiplayer and SP games in particular. It can save time and feel more appropriate. Have I done something to turn iit off that I can fix? Thanks It does still work, and you can't do anything to turn it off. However, there isn't (and n...

Re: A question of allies

This is likely to have been caused by the bug that affects the tooltip display for battles from mods such as TT Mod and Silk Road. It is due to the MP games list refreshing while the game is in the process of setting up the tooltip, so that the tooltip creation routine references the wrong ArmyList....

Re: Diagonal Flank Breach Tactics?

The flank attack shown in your diagram will not work because the game will not let you charge between the other two units that are in close combat.
