    It seems to me you have to put the data and logs folder in mods/ebii directly.

    And thanks for all your videos Sarkiss, it is nicely done and I really appreciate the historical content you share with them.
    It reminds of videos of reenacted ancient battles, done with EB1, that I watched some years ago. Although the commentary (in french) was often vague, what was cool was that the battles were done in multiplayer. It allowed the guys to make a reenactment of the battles, and their sequence of events, backed on the writings of ancien historians. I don't know, maybe it can inspire you ?

    Yep, drop it in mods/ebii, or open the data folder and drop that into ebii/data.

    this is great, very interesting approach to have two players fight it out historically then layer a narration on top of that. the only issue is finding someone to organise such historically driven MP match with. i tried a few historical battles in RTWII (Raphia) hoping to do the same but AI is absolutely awful. and deployed forces arent very historically accurate either. i would think that one of the reasons that the deployment of the opposing forces in 'Events after Alexandros' is so close is to leave the AI as little room as possible for making stupid moves. thanks for sharing.

    Have you noticed any difference in the behaviour of AI phalanxes with the patch?

    this latest battle of Thraike aside, i havent done any play-testing to be able to tell. and in this last battle the AI didnt have phalanx on their side, unfortunately, but mine did look pretty solid. ill keep an eye on it. it is pretty handy knowing they are in 'phalanx' by default though.

    episode 4, Lamia, 322 BC, is out.

    sarissa phalanx needs some love, pretty awful in the hands of AI.

    They're using default BAI, I would have hoped starting out as close as they are would stop the AI doing stupid stuff like separating their phalanxes.

    i think the issue is the 'attack' command. if human player keeps them static they work really well but once ordered to attack its a mess - they simply walk into enemy units. problem is, i dont think the AI can operate them that way and it always commands them to attack. have a look at what happens here
