The reduction in stacking is good. The increase in the cavalry factor means less cavalry troopers in a hex as well.

Gents,
before I go off and bother Rich Hamilton,
I have a Waterloo 1.08 JTS question.
scenario 032-The Ridge - D'Erlon's Attack - Phase 1
does not allow infantry fire due to the pdt


Do I have this installed wrong or something with the patch?


Thanks,



Jim P.

You see this in the Battle of Dresden too. The heavy rain precludes infantry fire due to the powder getting wet. Heavy loss of fire effectiveness for artillery too.

But it didn't rain at Waterloo ..... or did I miss something in reading David Chandler, Peter H. and the others....

I've just tried opening that scenario and get the same thing happening so it's not you.

Yes. It's a simple fix. I know he's pretty busy at the moment.
