John,
Are there any important things to know about the scenario changes? Any changes in design philosophy or things that radically alter a scenario?

Thanks!

Has anyone noticed that with the new OOB, the wagons look like infantry and the artillery too? :| This applies to multiple scenarios across campaigns.

Which OOB, Ken?

Or if you could list a specific scenario where it happens I will have a look. It sounds like a coding thing in the OOB is all (been there and done that one in another series ... actually considering I am using stand in graphics I guess it is nothing but that - so it sounds familiar and a straight-forward fix.).

Ken,

Do you use the Old Banshee graphic mods? I believe they have to be reinstalled after any game updates are installed.

I just opened up the Rapidan A1 and the guns and wagons all look like infantry to me. Didn't dig any further as it's past my bedtime.

If you have a problem across the board, the problem is with your icon file. Banshee's graphics would do it. Just opened my Rapidan A1, and all is copacetic.
No major changes in the update. Just fixed some bugs, some going back two or three years. Some river hexes were extended farther upstream. Note the new trench graphics, courtesy of JT.

Unfortunately I found out the hard way that, as the guy who has to make the changes and the fixes, that I can't use Banshee's files. After happily downloading them and installing, I realized that I have to use the stock graphics--AND THE STOCK OOBS--for any work that I do. Point is, for the users, Banshee would have to update his oobs and put them out again. So it is not a matter of coding on the stock oobs, but rather on any modded oobs that you might have on file. Either way--stock oobs with Banshee graphics, OR Banshee oobs with stock graphics, the pics will not match.

I believe that's due to the Banshee mod............you have to reinstall the Banshee mod.

I had the same issue.

reinstall and all is well

I reloaded Banshee after your update was installed and I don't see any problem areas.
