Hi, Colonel, My understanding is the result of the fire as if it was against infantry becomes a percentage chance for a kill. For example, if the result would have been 25 if applied against infantry, it becomes a 25% chance of a crew kill if the crew number is 100. Having said that, here's hoping B...

If it was the latter, they might have been talking about the campaigns. I think a percentage of casualties from the previous battle is replaced for each following scenario.

I'm not for certain, but I believe it was an option in the old Talonsoft Battleground series. I think what used to be an option has become standard FOW in HPS.

Here is something I found: ... war?page=4

I for one, certainly would purchase a title and see if it was what I was looking /hoping for. +1 It will be good to have a design team dedicated solely to the ACW engine. I think part of the reason so many of our suggestions fell on deaf ears is that JT was spread too thin covering multiple wars.

Hi, What you are discussing about map graphics is beyond me, but I would like to take this opportunity to put in a plug for larger maps such as the grand overland map and also map accuracy and conformity. The scenarios I have enjoyed most are long-term large scale ones such as the grand overland or ...

Hi, General,

Here is the most recent thread on attacks in column.


Needless to say opinions are varied.

Hi, General, According to Coddington in The Gettysburg Campaign, General Alexander estimated that the ANV had roughly 200 rds/gun on hand at Gettysburg. He also estimated that a gun could fire 30 carefully aimed shots/hour or 100 hurriedly aimed ones. He also said that the average gun carried 125 rd...

Hi, Joe, I can think of a number of changes I would like to see, but weakening zones of control for disrupted units isn't one of them. They are already penalized by having to fire at half rate, being unable to melee, moving slower, and being more likely to rout (-1 to morale checks). Most often they...

I was there three or four times in the '70s. The beaches were beautiful. After a few days so were the cows.

It is interesting how completely different the handling of column formation is between HPS/JT's Civil War games and their Napoleonic games. In the Napoleonic games Column Formation is both a road Column formation and an assault column formation. It can actually fire at reduced rate which I guess mo...

Hi, Colonel,

In ACW all units in line can fire from a hex. You were thinking Napoleon.
