Guys - if you have not checked out the new updates for the Napoleonic Battles series yet you are in for a real treat. The new 2D graphics are just amazing.

I just updated my RBR game tonight. I will upgrade Leipzig and 1814 next (as I have games in all three of these games going at this time).

Some highlights that I find to be really nice features:

1. The view menu includes the much needed option to have "Leaders On Top." This has been long-overdue. Something I suggested to John Tiller long ago but of course he just didn't have time to add it in. Let me just say that if all this update had was this feature I would be happy. Its been annoying for years to have to manually move the leaders up to the top of the stack. I prefer them there as it makes it easier to find them in the Info area.

2. New graphics - 2D ... amazing new woods, fields and other terrain graphics. Now we can make out the roads and pikes and trails in the woods. A much needed improvement. My eyes popped out of my head when I opened up RBR tonight to do my game turn of the Battle of Messkirch. Right on!

3. View menu items have new hotkeys to learn but for the Command Range its easy to remember. Instead of K its C.

Really a huge boost to the series. Kudos to all that were involved.
