The Constantius line seems a little superfluous, so I expect either it or the Normally line should have a different number.


I'm guessing it should be a 3 normally. I'll look. Thx for bringing this to our attention.

In the Western Hunnic list, there appears to be something wrong with the Sciri allies: "No troop options entered"


Thx, Andreas, I'll check these out and fix.

Should be a 3, and the master file has a 3, so no idea why it is showing incorrectly as a 2. We're working on it.

The master text says "(Maurya Empire only): Wild tribe bowmen"

It looks like the program separates out the conditions "(Maurya Empire only)" from the troop description, and the colon stays with the troop description. Fixed now (although it won't show up until the next time the master data is uploaded).

Fixed. Each of the 660+ armies has numbers for when it appears as a full-sized army, and numbers for when it appears as an ally. The data hadn't been entered for army 127b appearing as an ally (about 2/3 of the armies never appear as anyone's ally, so have no "as ally" numbers).

Thanks,

Less an error than an oddity, perhaps, but the technical terms in the Medieval Danish and Union of Kalmar list mixes Swedish and Danish. Assuming you want it all in Danish, the following substitutions should be made:

Fraelse -> Frelse
Smaasvenner -> Smaasvende (or Småsvende in post-1948 orthography)
Skyttar -> Skytter

(If you want to standardize in the other direction, Obudhaer and Landevaernet would become Uppbådshär and Lantvärn(et) respectively.)

Also, depending on how you feel about diacritics, you might want to change Fraelse and Smaasvenner in the Medieval Swedish list to Frälse and Småsvenner respectively.

Oh, and unless you feel that "leidang" is naturalized as an English word, the Early Medieval Scandinavian list similarly mixes Swedish and Norwegian: the Swedish and Danish words are ledung and leding respectively.
