    Yep, i'm not far away... ^^
    But as usual i prefer modding than posting.
    I was delighted when Rome II was announced. Felt this as a really good surprise. Another timeframe was logically expected.
    I'm not involved in modding anymore but other projects like this one, if you are fan of WOT you're welcome : http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com

    @Antiochus IV Epiphanes

    Not for the moment indeed, but certainly for the next edition of this patch. 200 sounds better.
    However for the moment i dropped all the roman civil war battles. I tried to create legionaries for the Boii (ex-senate) to oppose Pompey to Caesar but for whatever was wrong about it the game kept crashing. Perhaps a hidden hardcoded rule for ex-roman faction artificially turned barbarian and then given roman units ? I could never figured it out. Same with the independants (slave/eleutheroi) i reached the hardcoded limit for this "faction".

    BTW you can do it yourself with a small trick. You have to be in the campaign map unfogged, then locate the spot where the battle occured, then type "show_cursorstat" in chat mode. Note the coordinates, then leave the game or ctr+alt+suppr to return on the desktop, open custom_locations, duplicate an entry, then change the coordinates with your new ones, change the name, and save. Then return on the game, load this custom battle map, choose your factions and units, and save/play the battle. That's way more simpler than creating a historical battle using the CA tool...

    Thanks. However, for some reason I cannot get any battles to play or load. Not even custom battles. I just get a KTM. With historical battles I get a CTD

    EDIT: Fixed. Just have to play with RTW.exe
