On the artillery I would say bring along a few units (not to many!) and use them against the enemys phalanxes, one good hit with flaming ammo will absoloutly obliterate them :twisted: .

Hehehe, ok.

Oh, and I also have been tearing down the cultural temples and raising my own...WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN PUBLIC HAPPINESS!

Now I'm at the point where I need to upgrade my bigger cities to the larger palace option, so i can build better sanitary buildings. Gotta work on my squalor. hehehe

Last night my one saved game was corrupted, so I lost 1:20 of playing time, but it turned out well, because I was able to take both Thessalonica and Thapsus in a LOT less time with a lot LESS manpower.

I'm also having a lot easier of a time with the phalanx...I've been building mostly Principes as my main line of infantry, with a few Triari and hastati. And of course a lot of archers and some artillery, to hammer the phalanx while my cavalry encircles them.

The game is a lot better when you start to figure out how to play..hehehe. Thanks guys.

It amazes me how quickly stupid people are out-breeding the smart ones.

Do you have any screen shots of your campaign yet? If so you could you show us? By the way just in case you didn't know to take a screen shot just press Print screen (the one to the right of F12) then go to paint and paste it there.

Yeah, I've got photobucket. I'll try and get some when I go home from work...the senate has made me declare war on Egypt, so this should be interesting. Luckily Marius's reforms have passed (darn cool, btw), so now i get to play with new troops.

Hmmm...I couldn't find where (in what file folder) the screenshots went to. Anyone know where the default folder is?

Here's what I found from a FAQ:

Answer: You take screenshots by pressing the Print Scrn button on your keyboard. The screenshots will be saved in the tgas folder in your Rome directory.

If this doesn't work, try Shift + Print Scrn or Alt + Print Scrn. For some people, this seems to do the trick.
If you're still experiencing trouble, try downloading a utility like Fraps, which can be found on www.fraps.com .

Funny, I found my screenshots then last night, but they had a wierd TARGAS file extension, that even photoshop wouldn't open. I'll try again tonight though.

Heheh, just found this:

Question #27: Why are my screenshots black? How can I make usable screenshots?

Answer #27: If the game has anti aliasing enabled in the video options menu, then screenshots will be black. To make the screenshots visible, pull up the video options and turn off anti aliasing. Then take your screenshots. You can turn anti aliasing back on when you are done.
