Chose Allied "defend" and was sent from the top of the map to the bottom where the marker showed French defend area. Okay, I'll treat is as an attack. Put army into column and marched down roads. Before I could get any units near the target the battle ended and I was told how poor a general I was.

3 objectives, score 10109. Tried defend again and started next to objective but it was still listed as French when I am allied. Played as French defend, objective said Allied hold. Another, worse issue is that the last three times I played I was given only artillery, only cavalry, and only artillery. Playing division vs. division.

Looked carefully this time and see battle length timer is at 0. Could that be something?

Another gripe (or probably my error): I chose von Steinmetz (I think) from the OOB. Under him are shown 4 units of infantry, 2 artillery, and 1 cavalry. When the battle started I had 3 units of infantry only.

Objective Point Value? Objective Time Limit (Minutes)?

Your game is set that you need 10109 score to win the game, now if you have 3 objectives you need to give these objectives a value like let's say 1/3 of the total score limit needed like 3000 each for example, the Objective Time limit is the time needed for a side to stay in control of the objective for the value to be added to score.

Battle Length Timer set to 0 if I'm not mistake means there's no Time limit so only score should end the game.

Hope it helps

Thanks. But why in a Defend scenario do I not receive points for defending? The objective is ALWAYS marked for the other side. I can prevent the enemy from getting points, but don't get any as I did in other games of this sort (TC2M). As Allied Defend, the objective is marked French with radius, points, etc.

Another thing. There is nothing in the manual (or on this board as far as I can tell) about resupply. I have a wagon next to a cannon and nothing happens. There are no buttons to resupply either.

(Love the avatar. We don't get that show in the USA.)
