Whoever is setting up the multiplayer game has to tell you what scenario is being used and what forces are available, then you can open it in whichever game series it is part of. They pretty much decide how much information you will have on the game. They may also make you wait until the first turn ...

They have also added a Camera for making user videos which you can see in use in video link below. If you watch shortly into the ...

I'm getting them too, almost daily now. Trying to see if my Outlook settings will block it but may have to block all emails from this domain to stop it.

Jay can you post what type game it is (Phased or Turn based)? And, what options your are using in the game?

AI controlled fire of any kind (phased or Turn) should have more granular settings. More range trigger controls than just minimum, random and maximum for both rifle and artillery. Artillery could have cannister (3 hex), short(<6), medium(<10), full. Rifled weapons should have a max hex setting rathe...

My solution is to capture the battery if its enemy so I can give it a bad facing then plant a big short range battery behind it. Takes a couple of turns to shoot it out of existence. That assumes you have enough ammo which sometimes the Rebel player can't afford to do it.

Most obvious error the AI makes is it can't handle the difference between artillery and infantry. Many a time I have watch the AI charge my lines with limbered artillery. It also has a problem with leader handling in that it tends to leave leaders wandering around alone or in the front lines where t...

Rule of thumb: Melee is decisive, fire is attrition. Melee does fatigue your unit but it decisively fatigues the loser. Usually losing a melee puts a unit out of effective combat while doing little damage to the winner. The key to melee is never do it unless you are going to win. Another rule of thu...

I rarely play the scenarios or the Campaign linked scenarios because they usually are very one sided. The North Anna one I haven't played against an opponent so difficult for me to comment on. But like a lot of the scenarios it makes assumptions about what each side will do and probably overlooked o...

Here is a video touring the Pry Ford skirmish battle ground. I have yet to play the scenario but judging from how far the objective is from the Ford it will be fought in the open fields well west of the ford. Just have to cross the ford on the way to the battle. You can tell where the objective is i...

Colonel Peters, You don't mention whether you are referring to the full Campaign or one of the scenarios. A number of scenarios have problems. Which side depends on the scenario. This is natural because most of these battles were decided by the maneuvering that took place before the engagement. Howe...

They added another skirmish area to the game: Pry Ford And some updates. Here is a short list: - Added 4th Pennsylvania Cavalry (dismounted). The 4th PA was used as dismounted skirmishers in support for other regular infantry regiments in the center (and some in the northern part) of Antietam during...

August 19th - Update 66 (released) - New skirmish area introduced: East Woods. This skirmish area is part of Confederate General Hood’s counterattack int...
