    formations and other orders

    looking through the screenshots and I noticed on the bottom right of one had battlefield commands. The only ones I recognized though were three buttons that had to be formation commands, two look like commands you can give to direct your troops to either use their melee attack or ranged attack(i.e. the crossed swords and musket buttons), the hand looks like a halt command (havent been able to figure out the other ones though).
    Here's the screenie:

    Hmm, hadn't noticed this screen previously. We can see buttons for the three most basic infantry formations of the period (line, column and square). Above that there appears to be buttons for standing positions, crouched (kneeling)...and well, not sure what the last two are...lol. And to the right, as mentioned, we have buttons for melle, ranged fire, halt, advance (?),garrison and exit building. Looks like a good interface to me.

    It looks like first rank kneeling and the second rank standing to me. The fourth button seems to have a cannon on it. Probably only works for artillery units.
