Playing Napoleon Total War (SP), Battle of Arcole on Very Hard, my two 12lb batteries unlimbered immediately in their start positions targeting the enemy 12 lb'ers in Arcole. Having a little better luck than usual, they destroyed the Austrian battery before I had finished destroying the first of Alvinczi's relieving Grenzer battalion. Then the whole lot of them simply marched away from their guns, in good order, to join the rest of Napoleon's force!?!
Does anyone know how and why this happened? When I inspect the gun site all 8 guns are lined up in good order and shape, though the limbers are missing. No artillerist casualties were incurred.
Did I somehow command them to do this with a shortcut command? I cannot think of a command that would do this, but I am new to the game.
FYI: I targeted the ground just behind the second Austrian gun, counting from the North.
