Rome Total War again; had an epic fight with Egypt, then the game crashed.

One of the vast armies of the Scipii were in Libya in the middle of a withdrawal from besieging Cyrene, having broken from the town after receiving word of massive Egyptian reinforcements heading for them not two turns travel.

Just off the coast, the Legion established a fortified camp in hopes of defending themselves until another Legion could arrive to reinforce the Egyptian front. Soon they were themselves besieged. One Egyptian army had managed to catch up to them and surrounded the camp. The Legion had but one choice; sally out and try to beat the Egyptians back.

But this... this would be no easy task; the Hastati and Principes of the Legion were ill-fit to fighting the Egyptian phalanxes. The Romans attempted to goad the Egyptians into attacking the fort itself by destroying a walls with their own ballistae, hoping to draw them in to tight fighting and directly into their own phalanxmen. But the Pharaoh's hounds refused to bite. The next tactic proved successful, however.

Using their slingers from the Balearics, they drew in one or two phalanxes at a time away from the main body, who would be mowed down by slings and javelins. In addition to this, light cavalry enacted daring lightening strikes on enemy slingers and archers, despite their being well protected. After inflicting considerable casualties with relatively few Roman losses (light cavalry aside), the Egyptian force bolted from the field, pursued by the general and his remaining cavalry detachments. In their pursuit of the withdrawing Egyptians, the casualties suffered by among the cavalry were... profound... Almost half the small force were killed in the resistance of the fleeing phalanxes.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
