I'm now playing the grand campaign and have researched 'fire by rank'. The option to use this firing mode is still unavailable during battles. Could it only the troops that are trained from the 'military drill school building' (level 3 barracks or something) and higher that have this ability? Maybe I need to send my existing line infantry back to a sufficiently upgraded barracks to retrain? This really isn't clear. Hopefully someone can tell me where I'm going wrong.
I'm running the game on windows 7 if that makes a difference.

Just so you guys know, Maratha line infantry cannot use fire by rank
There is no option to use fire by rank, all your line infantry should automatically use it.
Perhaps this is because you do not observe your troops well enough in battle so to you it seems that they are not using fire by rank. Watch more closely. If enemy troops run out of range before your line gets a chance for a second shot, that might be it.
