Just my supposition here. Sticking with the Chickamauga example, WHEN Rich Hamilton develops the patch to bring it up to Tiller 2.0 level, thus making it compatible with JTS Chickamauga (which it currently is not), it will be posted and it can be downloaded. He made no reference in his reply to me t...

Texted Rich Hamilton with this specific question. As patches are developed -- no timeline -- they will be posted at JTS.

So, if I understand, there is a JTS patch which will bring HPS Chickamauga up to Tiller 2.0? I need only request?

Unlike my namesake I delve little in poetry. I have modified a couple of major scenarios (Gettysburg 007 and Chickamauga 042) to use a base 24 movement system and utilizing a different Weapons Effectiveness table compliments of John Ferry. In both cases I found missing units. In Gettysburg 007 Hood'...

Whatever one's thinking about supply capacity, it can only be changed by modifying the scenario in question. Which leads to the further question: "How interested are the MAJORITY of ACWGC members in the modifying of scenarios? Are they happy just playing the scenarios -- unchanged in any fashio...

Until HPS brings their offerings up to Tiller 2.0, it causes a number of problems with incompatibility.

I spent most of my entire working career as a programmer, primarily main frame languages, but some workstation development was involved. Haven't done any programming since I retired 6 years ago, but I am sure that I could learn the necessary language. Most of my years were spent developing statistic...

Glad to be of assistance. If you have never visited the ACW Engineering site maintained by Ken Miller, you should. It has a lot of very useful information in terms of understanding the underlying system -- that which can be controlled -- of these games. PDT files are central features.

Joe, I copied the following from the document I previously mentioned: The problem with judging pre-Melee fire is that it is difficult to determine which unit(s) fired. Only once did I observe all units fire -- the program listed 3 results -- from the hex to be meleed. In all other cases it appeared ...

Joe,

I did a study of opportunity fire a couple of years ago. A PDF document is stored at the ACW Engineering site.

100% pre-melee fire is not guaranteed and is limited -- maybe excluded -- for disrupted units. Higher morale units appear more likely to fire than their lesser brethren.

In a recent conversation my sister mentioned an associate of hers who is a student of the Civil War maintaining a website featuring many aspects of a number of battles. He is also a book collector with a personal library of over 3,000 books and manuscripts related to the Civil War. I may get a chanc...

As General Sands states sending the BTE in a compressed file is the only means of preventing it being marked Read-only. Since this is MS intention, it is unlikely that anything will change.

If one is experiencing the issue described in this post, please indicate when you first encountered and whether this is persistent or random.

It could be that only some club members will have the problem, but, if all running Windows 10, it would be difficult to explain why.

To Kennon's question: Yes This is unrelated to that issue. The finger of guilt points to a recent Windows Update. I have noted 2 updates for 64-bit versions in the last 2-3 weeks. This is when I and others began experiencing the problem. Of course, if one does not have Windows 10, or does not have A...
