Gettysburg has a problem that was resolved a few years ago but has raised its head again. When arty pieces are destroyed by arty fire, the game does not always recognize it in the scoreboard (the piece disappears on the board but the number of lost arty pieces may not be advanced in the scoreboard a...

We've been playing along just fine, and now he's getting a cpg error. We had stopped zipping the file and it played well but he gets the cpg error using either the bte or zipped file, so I don't think that the problem is with the zip. He deleted everything out of his saved folder to include the xxx ...

Thanks, Smadge. Wish that I had posted this a few years ago. The size and color changes, etc only impacted off map cursors (the tool bar and the hex info area, etc) but I was able to set it so that the cursor blinks at me on map by pushing the ctrl button. That alone is a big help. I'm still trying ...

I may be a lone wolf in regards to this but I'll voice it anyway. I have tremors and thus use a trackball in my gaming. Even though it sounds like that would be more difficult for someone with tremors, it actually is easier because there is less hand movement and the wrist gets to stabilize. A side ...

I don't know what the answer was, but he resolved it and we are playing. He did say that he had not received a password for our MAD R1 tournament game and also asked that I send the file zipped, which I had not done the first turn.

I would recommend contacting Brett Schulte, who was an active member of this club and did a lot of regimental strength research for some of the HPS ACW campaigns. He has a web site at http://www.brettschulte.net/CWBlog/ . He probably has what you need or knows where you can get it, plus he will have...

1 - The difference is the Win/Lost Result (WLR) in the formula because in a 300 turn battle, you get it once but in thirty 10 turn battles, you get it 30 times. The divisor should be adjusted to make it more equitable (but I lost this discussion about 15 years ago). 2 - There is too much emphasis on...

Just something for all of the Commanders and Adjutants to consider: If you achieve a Major Victory in a 300 turn battle, you will receive 1 victory and 85 points; ........................................................ten 30 turn battles, you will receive 10 victories and 94 points; ..................

Some of the roads in the latest games are the same color (brown) as the background/terrain and are practically impossible to distinguish even when using Bill Peters road and water enhancements.

In the middle of playing my second campaign as the Reb commander. Both times I have started retreating to Richmond from turn 1. The first game, it was almost an every man for himself retreat to Richmond as three or four separate columns retreated. The supply wagons are the slowest elements on the ba...

In a separate game, the Rebs just won this scenario in 303 turns by falling back on Richmond. Forcing the Rebs to attempt to duplicate the historical Overland Campaign is not going to be a competitive game and will probably result in it not being played much. When the time comes, maybe they can do o...

"...might solve the problem of the Rebels retreating to Richmond early." I don't understand. That is probably the only chance that the Rebs have to win this scenario and it is very difficult to even achieve a successful retreat to Richmond. Once there, the current Richmond entrenchments ar...
