I'm on the the Jerusalem mission of the Saracen campaign where you siege the city. It's the last province for me to capture.

I lay out all of my artillery (I have 32 eng points because of upgrades) and the "Start Battle" button stays dark and doesn't do anything when I click with the mouse.

I'd like to finish the campaign, anyone have any work arounds or have run in to the same issue?

***EDIT: Figured this out... I thought the artillery was the equiv of a catapult... you need to place at least one Trebuchet to be able to start the battle since the artillery can't destroy the wall. I didn't have any trebuchets placed so I couldn't start.
