Morning Gents,

I have 2 small problems playing the Chancellorsville game.

First, I have no marching sounds when moving my units. I noticed there are no marching sound files in the Media folder of the new updated version (3.0)
of the game. Can I fix it.

Second, I have no 3D icon for Cobb's legion of Mclaw"s division. Also the unit portrait for Cobb's Legion is for a cavalry unit even though it is a infantry
unit. Can I fix it?


Assistance would be appreciated.

The only games I see that have movement sounds are Shenandoah and Overland, I don't currently have Petersburg loaded.
You'll find files in the Media folder that are named *Movement, IMovement sounds like infantry marching. You could copy all these *Movement files to your C'ville Media folder, worked for me.

As to Cobb's Legion problems, that would require modifying the OOB file, there appears to be two entries for Cobb's Legion

Campaign Chancellorsville2.oob
393 5 I R 121 61 Cobb's Ga. Legion

All other oob files
393 5 I R 229 59 Cobb's Ga. Legion

This one has your problem as it shows up in Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville both,
shows a Cavalry picture, a 3d line icon but no icon in column formation, my guess is 59 is a dismounted cavalry icon,
not sure about the other oob as I don't know which scenarios it is in.

229 is the unit picture ID
59 is the 3D icon ID
Changing these with Notepad or another text editor and saving it would not affect game play in any way, merely change what you see for pictures/3d icon.
You could make a note of other units pictures you might want to use and look up their ID in the OOB file.

The problem in the oob has been reported to WDS and will be addressed in the next set of updates.
I have been informed the correct OOB info is the values shown for Campaign Chancellorsville2.oob
393 5 I R 121 61 Cobb's Ga. Legion
