Really a Gem - 9/5/2017 9:13:26 PM

I bought this game and it's a real gem. The issues I'm having is that the website over at AGEOD is not sending out confirmation emails to allow users to make posts. And no one is responding to the emails I've sent about it.

The learning curve is kind of high and there are many things not explained or changed from the manual. So without some place to ask questions it does cause some consternation. But that's not the game's fault.

Also the saved game function is borked and I can't load saved games. I did come up with a work around but it would be nice to actually post the issue and see what the real fix should be.

Once a few things are worked out I can see playing this game for many hours. It is pretty historical which means you should play from the South's side as it is extremely easy playing as the North. One or two major screw ups and you can lose as the South. Or even some bad luck like when I had Longstreet and Lee both killed in some battles (bad random chance).

I'll link your post over at the AGEOD forum, so they should fix this shortly.

It's up.

Hmm, I've got most of the Ageod games.

Does the resume game function work? This continues the game from your last turn?

I've just tried to load game function on my version 1.06 and it works fine. The pictures on the screen look like the scenario choice menu and you have scroll down looking at the date e.g "Late June"

I'm not a tech person so I can't think of anything else to suggest except try a new install and keep all the options to default.

Hopefully someone else will drop by to help you.


Edit - I've just noticed that I'm playing with an older version of the game. The latest shows turn number on the load game choices. The latest is 1.06.03 from December 2016.

Yes the resume function works. But the Load button does not. I am going to reinstall. I also had a crash during a save so that might have corrupted the save folders. And over on the other forums was same instructions on how to manually load a saved game and change the saved game directory. I'll be trying all of those after I finish my current game.

Not yet. I did open a support ticket late yesterday. I'm almost finished with my current game so I'll be doing a reinstall. Talk about a deep yet fun game. While I'll lose as the South I came close to winning. Made a few mistakes like not having a defensive reaction force farther south on the Mississippi to protect Vicksburg and New Orleans. I also didn't stop the north from invading in South Carolina. I was holding the northern lines but the AI did these end arounds on me.

Well the thread I started at AGEOD has over 100 views, so maybe wheels are turning.

I'm glad your game is at least playable. Next time, put together a killer stack and take D.C. as soon as possible. I defeated a maxed out Union AI in October 1861. Good luck!

Hi and sorry for the trouble.

GoodMongo, your account was not active at Ageod forums, did you check your spam box?

I now activated it. If you have further trouble, please send again a ticket and support will follow up or see with me.

Pocus, thank you. I did check spam and junk mail and nothing was received from AEGOD. I even clicked on the support but somehow that got sent to someone at Slitherine and he thought I was having trouble with Matrix forums.

Actually I just tried to login at http://www.ageod-forum.com/ucp.php?mode=login using the Goodmongo ID and got this error message:
"The specified username is currently inactive. If you have problems activating your account, please contact a board administrator."

I will try clicking on Support and creating a new ticket.

Here's the thread at AGEOD where I posted about your continuing nonactivation problem:

http://www.ageod-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=51877

It's had over 100 views since I updated it. Hope that you get help soon.

Yes I'm aware of the thread and have been in contact with people from AGEOD trying to fix it. Seems the account is active for them but not for me right now. Pocus has been very helpful in trying to resolve the issue.
