To everyone looking to get this game, I managed to jury rig a fairly easy to launch and very, very complete edition of the game. You can download it from the link here.

Hope you guys enjoy!

Regarding the casualty rates, I think people tend to overstate just how exaggerated they are. Certainly it is for the American Civil War and the like (and while I can understand some of the logic behind why an attack against a square with two units in it does more, the exact degree causes problems).

But from what I know, it seems to have hit a lot of the others dead on. In particular for things like the Colonial and mid/late 19th century European Wars. If anything I'd argue it might even be a bit understated against groups like the Zulu.

It also helps that most of the casualties you see aren't just killed, but also the wounded and missing.

AOR runs with DOSBOX

I downloaded and installed AOR through D-Fend, but it will not run. Other games run (but not all). Any suggestions?

Good

The casualty rates could have only been achieved in real life if each shot was a combination of wide-field fragmentation projectiles all laced with cyanide *and* anthrax. Not even the Andromeda Strain could have produced such ridiculous numbers. I think there may have been a tweak to reduce each weapon's damage, but the dips at SSI should have known better.

I partly agree with AndyfromVA, but I think that it is still good game.

I bought this when it came out. I loved much about the game, especially the versatility of the system. But there was one major problem - the casualty rates were abysmal and very unrealistic. This ruined the game for me.
