New here, apologies.
Of the Total War series games I've played, Rome I, Medieval II, and Warhammer have been the most enjoyable and I can succeed at them (on easy, I play for fun, not a massive challenge).
I started watching the British TV series Sharpe, again, the other day, so I thought I'd fire up Napoleon and give it another go.
I started the campaign where you can play as the British (listed on the menu as allied campaign or something?)
Then I realised why I abandoned it in the first place.
I find it to be so much more obtuse/impenetrable/difficult [insert synonym here] than Rome I, Medieval II, or Warhammer!
I spent 5-10 turns (or more) just securing Gibraltar using Nelson and Wellesley, and then lost my (default starting) navies in the English channel to very highly stacked French navies!! On one attempt I think I even got kicked out of Gibraltar by the locals!!
Can't get my head around it, despite reading some "guides".
Why is it so hard to get things going?! Do any of the good/popular "overhaul" mods make getting things going a little easier (long shot I know as I found any for Rome I and Medieval II made no difference or made things exponentially more difficult)?
Also struggle to read the font at 1080p, found a font mod but it doesn't really work all that well. Any tips on fixing that?
Thanks in advance.
