Post subject:  Balancing scenarios

Has anyone ever experimented with trying to balance scenarios by adjusting the slider at the beginning of a battle that affects how many casualties a particular side deals? Does it seem to work fairly well, or is it not worth the trouble of trying to find the 'right' level?

I've never tried it, except maybe when playing the AI. An interesting thought, however. I'm interested to see if anyone has ever tried this as well.

I've never tried it but if any Yanks would like to spot me a 20% advantage I would be happy to try it out :mrgreen:

The HELP file doesn't give much info: A/I Selection: "The slider under the A/I settings is used to establish the Advantage for the new battle."
Under the AI menu:
"Select Set Advantage to display the Advantage Dialog so that the Advantage value for the current battle can be viewed and possibly modified."

Advantage Dialog: "Moving the slider to one side or the other gives that side a better Advantage value for the current battle. Note that Advantage values cannot be changed after the battle has started in two-player games."

Has anyone adjusted the slider and not told his opponent? We never check these things. I could swear that all my opponents who beat me (and there have been many) have used this ploy.. :)

Once my brother slid the slider all the way over in a battle with his oldest son. Took a while for him to figure out something was wrong. Every time his men fired there were no casualties. :D

Beware the slider's affects are vary sensitive. Just a small change unless they upgraded it had a big effect.

You can ALWAYS check the position in the AI MENU: Set Advantage, after the game has started.
