    Thumbs up The Screenshots Thread

    Well, with the impending release of the demo and the game in two weeks, I think the forum could use a thread like this for all of us to start posting our funny, serious, victorious or inglorious screenshots of our campaigns.

    So lets start populating this thread with some of your demo screenshots!

    Exclamation Re: The Screenshots Thread

    Demo ain't coming out for 6 1/2 hours. Just gotta find a way to kill that time. It's dark and scary outside, so that's out of the question. Everyone is asleep. For my part, sleep is merely a distraction, so......

    Sounds like a good idea for a thread, and prevents people from posting a million different threads each containing one screenshot. I'll sticky it once we get some real material in here.

    Do those sinking ships actualy sink or just stay on their side for the rest of the match?
    Being better than the worst does not inherently make you good. But being better than the rest lets you brag.

    Good Question, ehm I think they slowly sank but i didn't really pay attention I tried to board the other ships.

    And my first try at the land battle..



    I could have done better but I forgot the troops on the other side (I was attacking from two directions).

    The following is on LOW settings, as many noted the demo runs rather slow for some reason. I put the settings to Low and I updated my Direct X which came with the demo, it seemed to help a bit.

    I have a question..

    Mailman653 - Pic 3, is that the General in the middle of the picture?
    If so then do the generals ride in the middle of the unit or just like in previous games on the left side of the unit?
    If it's like in previous games the it should be very easy to kill those generals in battle!

    This is a question to the people that have played the demo that I have been wondering since I saw some screenshots: Is there ragdoll physics for dead people?

    Believe it or not he was at the head of the column! I didn't really observe how my general unit moved but I know that when I zoomed around with the camera and found the US general, they were in a (stationary) column formation and he was at the very front.

    Yes, at the very front, in the middle of the unit. However, it is not that easy to kill him. The generals don't fight in the actual battles, but prefer to stay far in the back and observe the conflict. The American general made a last stand with the cannons and dragoons on a little hill in my battle (I managed to sorround him), and was amongst the last to die.

    Early on, I charged my general (supported by hussars) into a units of line infantry and horsemen of some sort, and found to my satisfaction that they were not OP'd. My general died just before I reinforced him...

    Yeah your probablly right Methuselah, I only had one round in the game before I had to step out. And I guess the general unit just isn't what it used to be since M2TW Although I think I've rarely had a general unit turn the tide of a battle if I threw him into the thick of things. So I suppose it's not a big deal if they don't do much but lead and provide morale in ETW.

    I am? But I agreed with you. He's in the middle of the front column.

    So I suppose it's not a big deal if they don't do much but lead and provide morale in ETW.
    My general was the first in the fray, and amongst the first to die!

    Cool store, bro! I want some ham.
    No ham, pepsi.
    They make deli slices of frozen pepsi now? Awesome!
    You also need to purchase a small freezer for storage of your pepsi.
    It runs on batteries. You'll need a few.
    Uhh, I guess I won't have pepsi then. Do you have change for a twenty?
