Butler seems to match although Mac basically white anted his way to being named General of the Armies without having much of an actual record to put on his CV at the time. In other words - he was a great general because he said that he was (so Lincoln should replace Winfield Scott and give Mac the r...

I found that, at least in the case of 1776 (the only title that I played around with), the Campaign series files worked pretty well -when switching their hexes around in place of the stock 3D. The Campaign series being East Front, West Front, Rising Sun and I think Divided Ground (which I did not us...

My observation is -what it the point of documenting it for ones' self? Anyway unless the units that you were using on both sides were basically the same unit (same size, same morale, same attributes), -which wasn't ever actually disclosed -it seems like the tests might be off. In other words- as uni...

Technically speaking the battle was lost at the end of the first day - and my reasoning for that is that the command control was completely jumbled -it would have been time then to have disengaged and retreated if this were a real battle in the real war -my reasoning for this is that -well, look at ...

Actually- I should add the disclaimer -that this was my view about the fatigue - but... it was based upon my Corps being lightly engaged. Mark bore the brunt of the fighting in this one by far ... After a certain point nearly all of my communications within the side were coming from the point of vie...

The 14/28 thing presupposes that you need to have a some sort of distinction for elevation. I am not sure that is really that true in 3d. The 3d itself is the elevation can be the distinction. However, that being said, I do know that in some series they do do some color differentiation in the 3d fil...

Steve et al I've been thinking it IS a bug, but I wanted to get some views from the field first. Yes, the pdt controls the parameters--hence the name--and I AM referring to Overland games, which I designed. Things just don't seem to be jiving as they should. John Ferry Overland co-designer. Hi John...

6 of the 13 flags... see that was the thing ... keeping Chattanooga was never a part of the plan until what point it looked like that 6 of 13 flags would fall - and the 7th would have been gifted as Chattanooga itself, therefore - we were unable to leave Chattanooga. I remember that I did a lot of m...

I think it is a trick question - doesn't the pdt file determine how much fatigue is covered by the usual non-actions? And if so then doesn't the scenario designer code the pdt table to how they see fit? I am pretty sure that this is controlled by a pdt table in the Musket and Pike engine. -Edited fr...

Fwiw - in the CWB series Scenario editor if you go in to the menu and go Scenario (right next to File on the top most menu), then -> Terrain Graphics -> Alternate -this sets the map graphcs as what you would have in the Map/Alt folder of your CWB titles. The stock graphics that are in there are the ...

Heh -I forgot that I was Polk... As this all happened about a year or more ago things are a bit hazy on my end - however, I think the fakery around Chattanooga town itself extended to our lines as well -as I was very interested in putting up a facade that that was what was happening - as I wanted to...

I never did figure out exactly why you guys let that leader that open... but I was happy to oblige the opportunity.

Leon ... don't sweat it mate... it was meant in fun.

Plus it looks like I get to play in the next one on the CSA side as well - purely for military science purposes of course. ;)

A victim of the USPS' rates no doubt -guess it goes hand in hand with razor thing profit margins.
