I would never say we wont be seeing ANY changes to the series as John can always decide that something needs to be added in but look at the amount of games out by JTS and then figure that he has his new contract, porting of games over to Android, updates, etc and just figure that any change to the Nap. Battles series will be rare.

I can tell you - this leader counter idea wont fly with me ... there are ways of finding the leaders I have already laid out. Try them out and then give me some feedback. Using the View -> Show Org option I can find any division leader I need. I also tend to lay out my div leaders to where they are just back of their brigades but still in command control range of the brig. leaders.

Use a leader placement scheme and you wont have problems finding them. Sometimes I place them with the division wagon too.

What is wrong with leaders on TOP? (Star icon) Combine that with HIGHLIGHT ORG and you can find ANY leader.

Always wished that we had the "Leaders on Top" option from the Early American War series. Asked for it once but John said it would be too hard to implement at this point.

Yes, if you click on the "Leaders" button on the toolbar (which I always do to start my game session) then the leaders show up more easily.

just a short note to mention I have been using Bill's tips in my large Waterloo Campaign.

What a difference. Thanks again for some great tips.

It's still a challenge finding the "Anonymous" commanders in the V and VII Corps.

"find" does not seem to work with regard to multiple "Anonymous" commanders. All four show up in the dialog box, but it only takes you to one of the commanders.

The Leader rules in Waterloo seem different than other Nappy titles.

They supply allot of leaders that do not have any real function, with regard to command control.

I was wondering why they did that.
