Yes, send these missile troops after them at the start of battle to harass the elephants as they advance; if your men don't get too close, the elephants units may eventually lose heart and literally turn-tail w/o causing too much damage.

If you can tell us your army composition and what you are up against it might help people suggest a strategy, Also mention teh terrain. Its 5 years since I built those maps so I cant remember them at all!

okay. i have:-
1 leader
3 nobles
2 auxillary cavalry
3 hastatis
2 principe
6 triari
and 2 archers!!
i dnt have any light infantry!
and about the terrain
the left half of the battleground is scrub and rocky and the right half of the ground is open. in the scrub and rocky ground, they have 2 thracia peltastes nd 1 thracian nobles!! the nobles charge and the peltastes advance!!
on the right, they make a border of heavy infantry to protect their 2 archers and leader and the leaders guards!!!
the border is made up of 2 macedonion royal guard nd a macedonion phalanx the left border is of two phanlanx!!the leader nd his guards wait for a while and then advance!!!the archers kill many of my soldiers from the beginning!!!nd i simply cant defeat the heavy infantry( especially the leaders guards nd the royal guards)

Sorry - my wife had a baby ;)

To be honest I cant think of anything specific so maybe just drop the difficulty down. I think your problem is you have no auxiliary type infantry to contest the rough terrain but it is probably too late to fix that.
