I'm wanting very much to like this game but totally stuck on tutorials 4 and 5. As a Divisional or Corps commander I can't get subordinates to execute my orders at all.
For example, at start of tutorial 4 I tell Avery to move to the left of 31st virginia. The courier rides to him. There is some flickering of couriers around Avery, but they don't ride anywhere, and then nothing happens. If I tell him to give me a status report, same again. I am letting the time default to immediate on the orders and as far as I can see the time on the order matches current game time.
Such a shame because the game seems to have so much potential. But if I have to micromanage commands, switch off couriers, and enable the free camera in order to exercise any influence at all on the battle, then it loses it's authenticity and is not performing as claimed in the slightest.
Any ideas out there?
Revision: It looks like I can get some movement in tutorial 5 by issuing 'move to, move your unit 300 yds in direction' commands. However, still seem unable to control anything very much via courier in tutorial 4 (divisional command), using any orders
