Gents,

I've created a new custom campaign game that runs off the HPS series. I'm using it to have a head-to-head scenario of our AotT's XV Corps 2nd Div. vs. the ANV's I Corps 3rd Div.. Now that it's completed I'm not sure how I can post and load the file so the members can download the game/scenario to play the match. Any ideas where I can load the file for access (which forum would work and be best to hold a large .zip file)?

Here are a couple screenshots to see some of the game and graphic changes. The idea is a full club army division will go head-to-head against another opponents division in a multiplayer scenario using their really club info and commanders ratings (based on the battle history and experience). The division commanders will oversee their brigade commanders and provide supplies, cavalry support, reserve infantry and reserve artillery as requested. The brigade commanders will go into the heat of battle and try and win a victory for their division's honor. The idea is to simulate the difficulties of communicating and operating as a coordinated unit while in the heat of battle.

Col. Hampel Sir! <salute>

It already looks outstanding and I am looking forward to having a "go" at it.

Respectfully

A very interesting idea I must say. Simulating the difficulties of battlefield communication has always been a difficult one in wargames. I would be willing to try it out for sure.

Gents, this MP battle is underway and going great. Both sides are advancing their turns in 1 weeks time (or less). Here is a image of the starting forces for the game....

Here is the battle setup:

We are heading into turn 4 with no casualties to report as of yet. Things are just about to heat up. :)
