Is there any advancement of you character? That you get quicker in loading or more steady when aiming? Nope, this is a pure skill game. You lean how to shoot and melee. Generally practice improves your effectiveness considerably but only to a point. The game is really about cooperative tactics. Off...

The game has three skirmish areas right now. Burnsides Bridge which was my previous picture, the Sunken Road and The Dunker Church which is shown below. You can see the church to the right. I am a Yankee. You can also see a Rebel skirmish line on the rise directly over my barrel. If you lock closely...

Here is why the Yankees have a hard time taking Burnside Bridge in the game. Us Rebs form a double line at the Rebel side of the bridge. Because the Union side the ground is relatively flat near the bridge they can't see us to fire. They have to either move to the top of the bridge in plain sight or...

They just made one of their milestones for Alpha. They added skirmishing which is short battles (on a timer) that anyone can join. You have to capture an objective to win. The ones I joined had about 50 to 70 players and lasted up to 30 minutes before ending. Skirmishes are based on following locati...

I would say that is a major code update, with many engine improvements, but don't expect a Bobby Fischer A/I. :lol:

If you can just get the artillery to stop attacking the enemy line while limbered it would be a vast improvement. :D

Hopefully it is a major rewrite of the game engine not just an update. The HPS/JT system is getting really old like me.
Maybe this time we will also get an AI player that isn't pathetic. :D

But the rules (the code) can be changed! :wink: The code base for HPS/JT games certainly needs an update. A lot has changed both in the capacity of the home computers to run these games and the design of CW games especially in the board game side of the simulations. The series needs more than an up...

One has to be very careful about adding small cavalry units to a scenario. You can always do it through the OOB and really don't need to add command levels. But the gotcha is that HPS/JT games don't have a specialized unit category for squad/company size cavalry. It can still act just like 400 man u...

A column attack against entrenchments isn't a problem. As a Reb, it's bring it on. I would love for the Union to use column formation to attack trenches. Getting stuck in front of entrenchments while in column is a gift to line infantry. My problem with column formation is it allows the player to us...

Here's a video of our Saturday drill. Things went well until they tried to get us to march. Then a lot of cursing. :lol:

They had a mass get together last Saturday to try to make some U-Tube videos. Trying to get us into a line of battle required a lot yelling. I didn't get a good shot of it since I was in the front line. We eventually did form up a two rank line and fire some volleys off by squad, rank and file. All ...

Nice uniform Ken. How is boot camp going? :0) Try a little target practice and let me know how that goes. Apparently, they think we really know how to shoot. Hit every target at about 100 yards. Which is a lot better than I would do with a real gun. My understanding is that your accuracy goes down ...
