I can't figure out how to use the catapult. I can load it, but when battle time comes, I get nothing. Also, how do you group up the soldiers? I can get to the menu, but can't figure out how to use it.

Thanks in advance!

Ctrl + 1 to 9
is to grope units.

The catapult can only be used against army buildings, so you need to move it to the building you want to destroy. It is often a good idea to surround it with soldiers, as well, otherwise it is likely to be attacked before reaching its destination. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

As Sir_G said, Ctrl + numbers 1 to 9 are used to group the required 'people' - highlight them first, then press the keys. When you want to use that group, just press the number that you named them.

I gotta say, I'm having the same trouble with my catapult.
I know I can only attack buildings, but no matter what I do, and what place or from which angle, whenever I click the building I want to destroy (with the right hand click, of course), all it does is just move around and circle the building.

Did you make ammunition for it, and actually take the catapult to the ammunition maker to load it?

If you are trying to use the catapult in a Vikings mission, you need lots of manna, which is loaded automatically on to it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Well, let's say its for Roman campaign 1, it's fully loaded with ammo, and we have plenty of manna, just incase that matters too.
But it still doesn't seem to want to do anything =(

You can only use the catapult on buildings occupied by soldiers.

Right. Well, I'm trying to attack small towers. And... nothing seems to happen.

What map are you playing? You aren't by any chance trying to destroy a partner's tower are you?

What version is your S4?
