The main problem with Windows 7 is you can't use default to install games. HP Tiller site has information as well as a post I did 2 years ago.

Congrats Joe-like I am sure many others who did, I am glad I nominated you. Look forward to your second term (a lot more than some other guy who won a second term)

Drex, are you using Windows 7, Windows 8, XP? Sometimes that can make a difference.

I played this scenario against Yvan Durand and the Union got trashed. I had D's and E's everywhere in the battle. Yvan fought very well. Then today I read this article: http://www.civilwar.org/battlefields/nashville/nashville-history-articles/nashvillecooling.html I swear there are times when I wond...

Also, there is a Union vs Rebel problem. The performance for a gun is probably quite different when using ammo from Northern factories versus Southern. Probably what is more needed is Southern gun fire tables giving them lousy mid range factors for their bad fuses. That is the one thing that Tiller...

Steve is correct; It is open source software. The Theory is that you only play the games you own. I am playing 2 games right, The Russian Campaign and For the People. I own both of them. Is their piracy? You bet, but there is piracy in the digital world as well. I have found it an excellent way to g...

The site is here if you not familiar with it. http://www.vassalengine.org/ You can play folio games to monsters like Terrible Swift Sword, and classics like AH Ge...

As I pass my third year in the club, I love the games and enjoy the folks. However, I become more convinced as I play the scenarios, that the Confederate artillery is just too damn effective in these games. I have moving arty, they counter-fire and wipe out guns. I sit still, fire at their arty, and...

Blake, with your talent, yo should consider doing a Civil War Dispatch for both North and South. More stories, more jabs, and recruit some cub reporters to add a story or two.

I have just started with Vassal, and I do own this game. Card driven and long. Might be fun to experiment.
