Steve, you mention Roman Battles with that in mind how would the Roman Civil Wars game engine work would that work better for a Crusade type game? That is one series that I haven't ever mastered (mastered might even be too generous of a term to describe my familiarity with it). It is not a Tiller e...

If it were me -what I would do would be to do an alternate install of REN, change over the weapons.dat to whatever you need, and then rate accordingly in the OOB files (mainly because the when doing the weapons' impact in the PDT is only really useful for fire combat, not melee combat). Unlike CWB y...

In the M&P series cavalry functions more or less in the same way that it does in the NB series- as such, there is no way per se to evade a charge via a game function apart from anticipating where one will likely come from (sort of a low tech approach). The M&P engine allows for coding melee ...

I haven't ever worked out exactly why it is that guys don't select artillery capture. If artillery capture is on then the situation basically forces the capturing side to hold the position to get the points. Without it, it just seems too easy to mount hit and withdrawal attacks. I don't actually pla...

Technically speaking - I think you can actually post as a guest on the public area of Rich's board - I think that I have done it by accident before. I guess he might have changed it but I doubt it. Not sure why someone would care so much as to provide feedback but then at the same time have some sor...

I am not sure how there could be any 'confusion', Ernie was simply posting information that JTS has always said -and I only added that technically there was one difference -and that was purely a graphical one -which is something that anyone that looks at the screenshots on the JTS site can easily se...

What Ernie mentioned is true -excepting for one thing , only the JTS versions are using the graphic sets from the JTS apps -those graphics are not in the HPS versions of the update.

Along the same lines - Rich Hamilton is asking for feedback as to which title they should update next. Post here to have your say (or drop an email to Rich at the JTS support email address - I think it is support at jo...

I have downloaded a few new M&P scenarios from the SDC so I guess it can be done (by end users?) Never played any of them though. I checked the scenarios I have hosted -and those are all using sub maps that came with The Renaissance, o...

Hi Cam, No they aren't -these are sort of abridged type versions when compared to the PC titles. There is no campaign sets either, just stand along scenarios which you play against AI. I am not even certain that you get a choice as to what side you play -although I am only just easing into several t...

"First has anyone a clue why the recovery rates differ so much between the CW series and the Napoleonic series?" Scenario designer prerogative, you won't necessarily see the same recovery rates from one title to the next in the NB series- as while Bill Peters did most of the titles in the ...

-Just made up my own is all - but not all programs are created the same and some have a significant learning curve. In my case, I threw it together using Fireworks CS5.
