If as the Union player if you choose Cross at Bruinsburg a major victory for the Union player will not end the campaign A Confederate major victory will still end the campaign as a Confederate win. If the Union player elects to feint at Bruinsburg -effectively you end up having a one scenario campai...

You first have to know what the path actually is - and that is definitely something that can be done without an editor. I know this because I went through scenarios, when I was involved in playtesting and wrote up that the graphics didn't match up with the path. Surprisingly I got told by that then'...

Don't go by the graphics alone, also look at the terrain by right clocking on the Terrainh/v.bmp to confirm its path. This is particularly true of some titles. No need for a map editor to do that, but admittedly the acronym that would come to mind is PITA. ;) The question at that point might become,...

Approaching this from a scenario designer standpoint, if I had a custom scenario, and I saw this happening - I would probably just edit in some supply sources for the armies' crossing points at the fords in question. That should prevent any isolation effects. I guess if it is an engine feature that ...

Hence my point of using Chancellorsville to Gettysburg. Less than 60 days from one battle to the other. Not the way things currently stand with the engine.

... not to mention, too, that certain leader losses did contribute to OOB structural changes in real life. (ANV going from 2 Corps to 3 Corps when Stonewall as lost is a good example, and not the only one - I think there were also some during the Overland campaign -although off the top of my head I ...

Are you saying, Steve, that AI play is a necessary asset to the sale of these games?


Basically that is the gist of what the feedback to the company has been for a long time now, although I don't know how WDS will approach things -I am speaking more generally across the range of series'.

Fwiw, that actually is the reason it is a major concern.

Yes it is a pity. Rich, I know nothing about coding so will ask you if changing the snapshot "code" in the NAP series to perform as it does in the ACW series would be a big deal? Well Walt, look on the bright side - this is now going to become an engine change request for at least one ser...

Hi everyone Rich Hamilton came through with the answer. Big campaign maps that can be written on can be produced using the snapshot feature. Here's what he says and it works! "I had totally forgotten the "Snapshot" feature. Go into Gettysburg and open up a scenario. Then go to the Fi...

When constructing the screenshot I find it useful to turn off auto-scrolling, and moving the cursor the very edge of the image you have visible at the time. I am a heavy user of opacity to make things align correctly, and rarely turn off the hexes (it helps with alignment not to mention if you are w...

Since I won't have time to sort these for awhile - the only real alternative is to put of a zip file of the lot. It is about 1.3 gb.

This is not the site for downloads like Stephenson's Depot, Climax, and Struggle for Control. I believe these were Rich Hamilton's games.


David is correct, what I had on SDC was/is basically the material that Rich Hamilton had uploaded at Gamesquad.

The site's host had a server change that basically meant everything got lost. While I still have everything that was on the site, I have not had time to recreate the download area again. The site isn't dead at all, but the download area took a big hit. It won't be in the same format, mainly because ...

Tackling the problem as posted ... 1st off - this is clearly an OOB issue - the question is, which OOB is it? If it was one that was user created then it is not something that the company would support. I imagine this one probably is one -but if you could list which one that it is? Probably PM John ...
