About your game: I am interested, but I have no time to contribute. And therein lies the problem. Going open source and letting anyone interested contribute by developing scenarios, graphics, discussion, testing, etc. only works if enough people are interested to spread the work load so only one or...

And, that is also an indicator of the problem. This forum probably represents most of the people interested in PBEM Civil War games. I hope it musters more than 200. At one time it probably had over one thousand. That is why I posted here. To see how much interest would be shown. A half dozen people...

And, that is part of the problem. A Web Site with videos, screen shots, forums, etc. require something like a GoDaddy hosting plan and someone to set it up and administer it. I had set up such a web site but it was rapidly taking up all the time I had for the project and it wasn't even online yet. M...

No. I am not seeing enough interest out there to justify spending any time on it. I may work on it some next year if I don't have anything more interesting to do.

Yes, but Napoleonic small unit tactics need a quite different emphasis. I am not enough of a Napoleonic expert to do that but I am enough of one to know how poorly games simulate that period. The game is capable of putting units into a variety of column, line and mixed formations but appropriate tac...

Any way to just provide proof of ownership of HPS version and get the JTS version with new serial number rather than do updates?

In Gettysburg 3 day scenarios even if using the ammo per gun optional rule you will always run out of artillery ammo by the third day and will probably use up all your wagon ammo. I never have checked to see how the ammo situation ends with the troops (how many low or out of ammo). Usually the runni...

HPS does seem to be dragging their feet on releasing though. . . It is more a matter of a shift in JTS policy; per Rich Hamilton on the Blitz (under a France '14 topic), JTS is not going to provide updated patches to HPS any longer, instead opting only to have the one version.). I know that I had a...

By not using ADF are you not losing the ability for your units on defense to fire multiple times as enemy units advance on your position or cross within in range or LOS? By not using ADF its possible for enemy troops to advance on you across open ground and end the turn in covered terrain or even o...

Most of this could be "fixed" through the scenario editor. The problem is getting agreement on how much ammo is the correct amount. Give to much and managing ammo disappears so you just as well eliminate it. That said, my opinion is ammo isn't the problem, it's the ability to manage ammo t...

Check the properties of the short cut you use to run it and the executable file to see if they have been set to compatibility mode with a low resolution screen. It sounds like the game is for some reason running in one of the old monitor resolution modes.

The problem with Fatigue is that it has been expanded to represent combat and normal just doing to much fatigue. One recovers easily with just a nap while the other is trauma from losing to may friends. It is also used by night rules to force players to not do things like night fighting and marching...

Go to your Control Panel then Apps. See if HPS Gettysburg is listed there. If so uninstall it. If not, go to your CD and see if you can find the uninstall script there and run it. Usually when it won't run setup it thinks you have already installed the game. If you can't get one of the uninstall scr...

A forum could be set up like the ones here which are probably relatively low cost. But one of the reasons for having a web site was that you need something capable of hosting the files that need to be downloaded and uploaded (in the case of people doing graphic work). The main game requires a 200 MB...
