would like to add I've only ran into 1 bug so far. some army's walk off the beaten trail and requires to restart game. or as I found u can combined that army to other and works fine. I've played the campaign up to second chapter level 3. so about half done.. only complaint I have is that army's move to slow. other than that I do enjoy this game, as being older I like thing to move at my pace.. lol

@CHAZ The game is very buggy and works correctly only on Windows XP. If you want to play on new systems (Windows 7, 8, 10) - make sure to use additional libraries to run the game on modern systems; it's available in Downloads, instructions are inside the archive
