Rome 2 Full Manual

So the retail players manual that games with with the discs mentions that there is a folder on disc 1 called "manuals" which should have the full manual for Rome 2, but when i open up disc 1 in windows there is no "manuals folder", is this a mistake on CA part? Where can i get a full manual?

    I got the game from steam and there is no manual. Which is a must in this game.

    I have a retail copy and the manual isn't anything to impress about, some controls, copyright blah blah nothing of interest.

    Manual is useless, just common how to install and that's it. I was looking forward for some story, chars, or even terms for the game but nothing lol.

    Use the in game encyclopedia it has much more information than a manual ever could.

    Dear dudes and dudettes, the Manuel is found by:

    1) put game in window mode.
    2) right clicking on whatever it is you need information on.
    3) The Manual opens in another window with a full tech tree of whatever it is you are looking for.

    You're welcome.

    That is the in game encyclopedia and it doesn't require windowed mode...

    Hello redamo27,

    Apologies, this is badly worded as it is intended to refer to the encyclopaedia 'in-game' rather than 'on-disc' - you can access this by hitting 'F1' or right mouse clicking on most interface elements like the unit cards.

    Thanks,

    Bart CA

    Manual doesnt answer questions I have and have had to mostly guess on my own... like:

    1) Dust/dirt in the city
    a: Construction?
    2) Green confetti like stuff floating in the city
    a:?
    3) Raiding coins floating around the unit
    a: coins they are "raiding" but where is clearly shown the amount they are "raiding" (answer I think is you minus 2500 from the base and the difference is the "raiding" gain? So like 50 gold a turn with 2 different units raiding? that's it ?)
    4) Hammer floating over city
    a: means I can build something there
    5) People dying like every 4 turns
    a: stupid--my spy gains like 3 abilities and then croaks? where am I hiring them from--the old age home?
    6) Small black and white helmet means a Veteran is there?
    a: yeah figured it out
    7) The unit banner on the campaign map gets frayed when units within that army/fleet are at low health?
    a: I think so

    8) Yellow and white feathers?? floating around the unit in the city?
    a: not sure

    .bump

    Or how about any discernable matrix to show that you Enslaving the captured means anything...are you getting to close to having to many slaves? Is there an economic bump up from taking more? If I have a Slave Trader built does it make a difference? What gold am I getting for taking them as slaves? Or should I just kill them all?

    @ Optio82

    1. Yes, unless it's green -- in which case, I'm pretty sure that is plague.

    2. Provincial edict. It's a bonus applied to every city withing a province and each edict has a different color (you have to own all the regions in the province before you can issue an edict). This might be applicable to question 8 as well or maybe a unit level up...I would need to see a screenshot of it to be sure.

    I believe slaves are good for income, but you will take a hit in public order if you have too many. One of the settlement windows shows slave levels and the amount of public order you get from it. Too many slaves should lower public order to the point where the icon will be red, though I haven't had enough slaves to see it happen yet. The icon also shows the positive/negative score associated with it, so I imagine there is a way to manually calculate everything on the settlement tab if you wanted to.

    Thanks Skullman86

    Indeed you are correct - the Edicts were causing the white and yellow feathers or whatever it was to float above the cities in that province

    Indeed that's the actual manual. It was "supposed" to be included on Disk 1 as a PDF in a "Manual" folder but someone didn't put it on the Disk.

    A Shamefur Dispray, indeed.

    Another question... are there no veterans to add to Fleets? So we cannot train fleets to improve?

    Ssssooooooo likely hood of getting a PDF version of the encyclopedia so I don't have to be in game to
    read it? As in I have an option to read the manual on the bus to work or when I should be paying
    attention in class perhaps?
    Wouldn't mind a non in game version..just saying.....
