How to command my troops?
If you are not familiar to M&B's F commands, take a breath, it is very easy. Basicly you have 4 menus to command your troops. These are;
F1: This menu covers movement orders. When you click on F1 and open movement orders menu, basicly menu shows which buttons will be used for. If you press F1 again while you are in F1 menu and keep pressing, one flag will be appeared in your view. That flag can be moved by your mouse. Stop pressing F1 when that flag is above where you want your soldiers to go, then they will go there.
F2: This menu covers formation orders. Orders are obviously so clear in this menu, just read them and use them when you want.
F3: This menu covers fire orders. This order will be used for ranged units (Archers/Crossbowmen/or troops with Javelins)
F4: This menu covers weapon usage orders. Basicly, if you order your troops to use only melee weapons, they will switch to melee weapons if they have. If you order your troops to use only ranged weapons, they will use only ranged weapons if they have. You can also make your horses dismount/mount in this menu.
