Hi
I was reminiscing about the wonderful Age Of Empires II the other day, and so decided to buy III
and there's that new formations... thing with the volly and stagger etc
but I have NO idea how to access it
wondering if anyone could just point it out on the screen...
(It's probably gonna be really obvious but oh well >.< )

yup, and you can get allot of other helpful things, such as vil spread in the options menu, took me 1 month to find it out but helps allot in a treaty game, and reduced my avg age time by like 20 secs for me.

thebreadbinman,
Here's what "KevTheGreat" meant was...
Go into either a "scenario" or "skirmish" game, click on "menu" in the top right corner, then click on "options"..."Game UI Options" should be the next screen to open up...go down to the "7th" item, "Show Advanced Formations" and click on the button to the right of it, then click on "ok".
You should then be in...

Welcome, Breadbin
While you are at what TT described, you should also enable:
-show gatherers per resource
-show advanced improvements (mouse over ups will now reveal specifics)
-easy drag military (allows you to drag a box over vills and units and only get the units)
Also consider downloading Ekanta's UI mod, which has some nice improvements to the built in one. It can be found here:

Have fun here
