With whom except Romans did you beat the Imperial Campagin yet?

I played as German on Hard/Hard, because of the unittypes you have I didn't find it that hard though. I'm thinking about playing as Carthage on very hard/very hard, what do you think whom should I attack first? Spain, Numidia, Egypt or Rome or the Greek Cities? I'd say Egypt or Rome before they get too powerful.

Well, being Carthage everyone usually hates you. If you want to keep control of some/all of Spain/Iberia then i'd take out them first but then you'd have to deal with the Gauls. But if you want too, take Sicily because once you have it you arn't usually attacked anymore by the Scipii or the Greek Cities mainly because Scipii can't really build up an army with just one provience in their control and the Greek Cities usually have Brutii to deal with. I'd make trading deals with Egypt and possibly and alliance for the time being. Numidia is usually easy to deal with, especially once you have elephants. I once took their whole empire with a banned of 4-5 elephant groups.

Right now I find playing Carthage on veryhard/veryhard extremely easy. Maybe it's because those guys get money without end. I didn't even build one elephant unit yet but don't have troubles conquering Italy. All you need is a strong fleet and lots of light cavalry.

no problem You can only play as Macedon in custom battles. They have some funny cavalry units. Maybe it's possible to play with them with some kind of mod or patch in the campaign modus.

There is a way. Search your hard drive for the file "descr_strat" (Ignore the "s). Open it up into a notepad document. If you can't see it already, straight away at the top of the document, there is (something along the lines of) start playable, and the 3 roman factions under that, then end unlockable with the ones that u unlock when u become imperator, and below that are end unplayable, the ones that you cannot unlock whatsoever (By becoming imperator). Cut and paste these (EXCEPT for SPQR (Senate) and slaves, into the start playable list. And, if you want, do the same to the end unlockable if you want. If you screw up your descr_strat file somehow, and cannot start a new campaign, just paste this into your descr strat file. Hope that helps.

You know not frustration and anger my good friends...

My two full Spanish armies were about to sack Rome when my computer freezes. I restart.

"Non system disk or disk error Remove disk and press any key to continue"

*Removes CD and SD card* *Restarts again*

"Non system disk or disk error Remove disk and press any key to continue"

So now my computer, along with my 10 gigs of music, 20 gigs of games, and 30 gigs of porn :naughty: are gone. This happened once before, and when I got it back, battery time jumped 1.5 hours! Heh, maybe it will happen again...
