The Register Serial Button appears only if you purchase Eternal Empire and I guess all future expansions. I just purchased eternal empire and the register serial number button is on the initial screen. Might this be added in 1.62 or 1.63 patch for those that do not have the latest expansion?

If you are interested in the ACW. Shelby Foote wrote a 3 volume narrative that is very good. I am on the volume.

It took him 20 years to write it and he did exaustive research.

It is a good read, but each volume is between 800 to 1000 pages in length.

There is no register serial button. That is the problem. There is a register button, but it goes to matrix's website. And is used to register a new game with them for support, not the game. After a full reinstall, it worked fine. Just took awhile. The uninstall program on windows 7 64 bit appears to...

I did solve the problem, but it required a complete uninstall. I loaded the initital fog release, then each expansions release and complete patch in turn (I bypassed the incrementals). When I got to Immortal Fire, It downloaded patch 1.6.1 (well 19 patches) Then SAS, and LTR it just check for patche...

There is no serials link in the initial menu. I installed from disk. (1.01) I then entered my serial number for 1.01. I then installed patch 1.60, and it had my fog serial, but no other serial options. I then installed the latest patch 1.6.1 and the initial load screen has no way of entering serial ...

I have said this in the past and I guess I will repeat it. Certain generals are winning 90+ percent of their games amd others (me ) about 50 percent of their games. It does not matter what army they play. They still win 9/10 or more times. They can play weak armies or strong. The better player wins ...

I always preferred a percentage system, where 10-20 percent of your army is x troop type, 5-15 is y, etc. I would also prefer lists for the major players, where you cant have all superior troops x. Roman armies are the biggest offenders. They did have green troops. They actually had the first boot c...

There is a very good player, that I really enjoy playing against, but once in a great while he will resign. He did say why, and though I did not agree with his assesment, It was no big deal. I have played him many times since. I have beaten like 3 or 4 times total out of 25 or more games. In that ca...

We now have increased unit maximums

But are the unit minimums increased as well when the point totals go up? I am playing a large game for me and the unit max for the Cuman Cavalry went up from I think 46 to 55. I do not think the minimums went up. Should they not both go up?

Patience is also important. If one of your shock troops goes uncontrolled, maybe let him die, don't follow them up. I am an average player that has moments (infrequently) of brilliance. If you switched sides the top player would still win the battle. It comes down to picking your army, but also, tim...

French knights were famous for going uncontrolled based a few battle in the 100 years war. Also, knights in the various crusades and against the mongols tended to go uncontrolled, but I do not think they charged through allied troops. The French Knights in the 100 years war were cured of this, since...

One of the things I have found is that I play better with certain style armies. When I first started playing I played all kinds of armies. Lately, I have found an army that fits my playing style. (It is more of a certain mix, there are armies of this type in most of the periods) I seem to be doing b...

ETE change the number of BFs changes with the size of armies

I was wondering what this feature means. DAG has always had this. since we use a point system. Has there been some other change to this?

Evader caught in the rear did not drop 1 moral grade.

This was very odd and is the last turn of the game I just finished so a replay should show it. I am early Alan vs early bosporan. I charge a light Cav unit with a cav unit and the evading light horse stopped at the board edge. I hit it in the rear so it should have auto dropped a moral level. The au...

I like TheGrayMouser's idea. Here is a variable of command points. Another option is have troop generals have 8 command points field maybe 10 command points and inspired generals 12. Poor troops in command range cost 2 points to move. Average 1 point to move and superior .5 points to move. Elites ar...
