I think in phased based play you could still have opportinity fire at half strength and then the defensive phase at full strength. opportunity fire seldoms hits that many men and the real result would be that a unit would disrupt here and there.

Could not opportunity fire be available even if a phased game is played. It could be listed as an option to select at the game start. The Nappy games have and option "No opportunity fire against skirmishers" so I have to believe this could be done. Lt General Jon Thayer III Corps Army of Northern Vi...

I would bet that in the combat you described only one section of guns fired which is to me one of the main problems with defensive fire against adjacent enemy units. The attacker has the option of combining his units to fire or melee and expcet only limited defensive fire. Simply put, attackers shou...

I put the CD in the drive and the start up program ran. The game and all the files are on my computer. I can open the start screen where you select a scenario but when you click to open a selected scenario the message, "Sorry, not supported by Windows NT" comes up.

I will take the field at BGC Chickamauga. This is the first time I have done this so I am unsure what happens next.

i like the idea of straggler loss and recovery but regarding the issue of excessive losses and continous day long action, I feel that the penalties for excessive fatigue should be of greater influence. I have not given this all the thought it would require to make happen or even if it could, but if ...

This thread goes back to my earlier issue with Antietam. If the attacker fires combined stacks the defender will maybe have 2 units fire back. When the defneders are 100 to 200 men they just will not hit many men. It is my opinion that this tactic make simply defending a position impossible. As ever...

All three of Jeff Shaara's books are good. There is also a book that covers a Confederate soldier's story called "Jim Mundy" by Robert Fowler. Another really good book is "Unto this Hour" by Tom Wicker. It deals with 2nd Manassas. I liked Gingrich's books. There are two by Harold Coyle called "Until...

If opposing forces are adjacent to brestworks do both receive the benifit. I am playing 2nd Manassas and I entrenched in the woods along the railroad cut and the Yanks have move next to my works and I can't seem to hit anyone and I mean no one. I fired 4 Napoleons at an adjacent target and had "no e...
