From: Vastervik, Sweden
I have found something that can give the most strange and varied results depending on how you play it.
Im playing France, im at war with Austria after supporting Bavaria from an Austrian DOW.
In the last turn i moved the Bavarian corp from Munich to Linz capturing a depot that i used as supply i also have a depot in Munich. Then I moved the Bavarian corp in to the city of Linz and marched Napoleons stack to Munich and ended my turn.
Now the fun starts.
Next month I move last, in Austrias land phase he moves a cav corp to Linz and moves in to the city.
Its France land phase.
I assume the Bavarian corp is besieged, and yes it is out of supply, but when I look at Linz the Austrian corp is listed as in the city and the Bavarian corp as Besieging unit(city).
I march Napoleons stack towards Vienna but I get stuck in Linz, i have 3 move left but cant leave Linz. Appearantly the Austrian cav corp is stopping me from continue, as it should. But wait... Napoleons stack is out of supply, strange I have a depot next door in Munich.
And it gets even more wierd.
I move the "besieged" Bavarian corp out of the city!?! and back in to the city and push end turn...
Enter combat turn and there is a yellow marker on Linz, a battle can be resolved there, i click on Linz to resolve it.
"Attack the besiegers of Linz?" I press yes. The Bavarians have appearantly decided to break the siege without the help of Napoleon.
I lose the battle, Bavarians have low morale, apperantly The Bavarians retreat in to the city and siege is resumed.
I press the attack city button. "Siege of Linz" The Bavarians are now breaching the city walls. Again The Bavarians morale fails, but at least the are still beseiging. And all the time Napoleon refuse to help his Bavarian allies, he must be lazy.
I reload the game, try some different things, reload again...
Some of my findings:
The Bavarians can leave the city and if they do they can use the Munich depot, same is also true for Napoleons stack. All corps are now also free to continue to vienna.
The Bavarians can enter and leave the city as many times as they want, if any of Napoleons corps enter Linz they are unable to leave the city again.
If the Bavarians have left the city its possible to place a depot in Linz.
If I end the the land phase with Napoleon and the Bavarians outside the city no combat takes place.
If i decline to attack the besiegers the first time, and click attack city the troops curently in the city attacks the besiegers
I cant detach factors to create a garrisson regardless if im in or outside the city.
If i win the battle and the Austrians retreat the Bavarians are still beseiging units(city) and it doesnt matter if i leave the city and enter again, still beseiging units(city)
If i lose my attack on the besieger and move out of the city and press attack city i get a message "city either unoccupied or friendly"
So where is my troops and who is besieging who?
I can provide saves if wanted.
