Mine does not crash with artillery and I don't even have this patch. So is there a problem with your graphics being to high or to low?

Hi.Thanks for the patch and the hard work!
The mod works awesome no crash until now(Some hours) but unfortunately during my campaign as Ellas i still can't recruit generals but more importantly even though i chose the Loyal factions option at the start after about 15 turns Austro Hungary betrayed Germany for no apparent reason.And now Germany is preaty match doomed and i had join the Germans to advance my plan but Germany will parish so is that a bug?
(also all my old saves became unusable but i guess that was needed but i beg you new updates to be save compatable if possible when possible.Thanks again for your hard work

secretly the Austro-Hungarian Empire is now it's own true entity. In all my games previous to this patch they declared war on everyone and had the army and firepower to do it. I haven't played 5.1.2 yet

Well for me it happened after this patch not before but having Austro-Hungary get to war with Germany is out of place and also the end of Germany which has war with everyone.I think that the force loyalty option at the begining should not allow that to happen and even without it it felt out of place since Austro Hungary does not join the entant and that choice is its death sentence and a emersion breaker.Unfortunatly now i stop playing waiting for the next patch because the campaign cant continue normaly since Germany has only me as ally and i cant help her now that it gets swelled by other countries even though i control the Balkans.

Both launcher methods dont work... along with the options (classical tactical or whatever)... Again..
Mod Manager works but only loads with the unit scale at 250, like 5.1.1.
Please just use a new launcher this one never worked and never will.

Since this patch, with normal unit sizes, my artillery disbands after every battle. Why was the artillery unit size decreased(for normal, is now 4 men and 1 gun.)? I know that units under 5 men are disbanded, as the same thing happens to tanks.

Downloaded the .2 new version. When I launch the game, the menu is the napoleon total war menu. When I had the .1 version, it went to the ww1 themed menu.

Good to see that different errors were fixed! I will try it as fast as I downloaded. Just a question, do I have to cancel the previous files or I just open the folder as usual?
(Rome as capitol = my word listened, this raise my modder's opinion exponentially [+1000])

I to play as Greece and can construct a navy at all i also could not invade Instabul-Konstantinoupoly i had to starve them out the game did not alone to assault even though i could assault each other city fine.I gave up my campaign because Austria-Hungary randomly betrayed Germany for no reason even though i chose loyal factions and Austria Hungary did not even join the entant signing her death sentence and leaving Germany unrealistically alone and only me as her ally
