Hello Gents,

While registering a game and looking at the Scenario victory/defeats the Norris Mods were mentioned so I had to look them up cause I'm a curious fellow :D

The Norris Mods: http://www.acwgc.org/acwco/

Does anyone still play them and if so, how are they to play?

Dave,

I did almost all the work on those modules. It was an attempt to use the Battleground maps with the Corinth (HPS) game system. It worked well enough until HPS locked the OOBs and installed other checks to disable this process. For example, one was able to play the battle of Gettysburg using the HPS system well before it was ever released by HPS. I doubt you would have any success using these modules unless you could find a "pre-locked" version of the Corinth .EXE. These modules are basically obsolete.

Oh shoot, that's too bad and sorry for not giving credit where credit is due.

When I bought the TS discs all those years ago when they were fresh I dimly recall playing a Norris Mod (at least I think they were called Norris mods) game with a friend of mine and really enjoyed it.
Are those a different beast than your mods? This would have been when TS still was running the show.

I've been busy searching for those mods and came across this site:

http://hiwaay.net/~tiller/html/scenarios.html

Lots of scenarios/mods there. I'm not sure if they would work with BG still but they look interesting especially the "Guns of the South" scenario lol :D

Just an old discussion about Jess Norris's mod featuring a post by a certain Mr Frost from back in 2005 :)
