Yes, that was a fatal flaw. There were a few occasions where the CSA came close to doing that but that thinking also led to the result at Gettysburg. My view is that Longstreet's strategic thinking was more likely to bring victory. A friend of mine and I used to play Victory Games "The Civil W...

What was the decision process that led to 30 minute turn scenarios? I looked through the literature a bit but couldn't find it but if it's been discussed I apologize for my ignorance. Otherwise it's like the proverbial elephant in the living room. Not sure I would want to play these but I'll try to ...

Man, the 'John Ferry' name has been around for a long time. Good to here he is still involved with this series.

I can't explain why but controlling a general rout of my forces while facing a major defeat is really stressful to me, so much so that I get to a point where I can't even watch the replay anymore (sniff). I will let the victor have a few turns of rampage but after that I send a termination bid for s...

I visited these battlefields this March and I was actually impressed with Corinth more than I thought I would be. The visitor center is very good quality, built around the remains of Battery Robinette. The contraband camp is interesting history, although there are no buildings or artifacts remaining...

Thanks for the response and forwarding. Re: Corinth, I sent off the updated historical weather variants to JTS a few months back for a possible future update of Corinth, Peninsula, Vicksburg, Gettysburg and Ozark. The Purdy scenarios use Iuka.pdt which I had to copy and update to the newest version ...

I'm noticing several instances of missing 3d graphics, especially in Shenandoah; this ghost-cavalry one is from Chickamauga. Is this being addressed, and is there a protocol for reporting these? My old OOB-viewer program from old banshee days would be good for this but it doesn't work with the new r...

My Brother and I (and sister and her husband) did a 4-day whirlwind tour of Nashville-Murfreesboro-Chattanooga-Chickamauga-Corinth-Shiloh and back to Nashville just last month. My brother flew in from Texas and the rest of us from California - it was a real treat to finally get out and do something....

I just noticed that Cavalry MP is 20 in Campaign Shenandoah and 24 in every other title that I own.

It doesn't seem right but I don't own any other newer titles since Chancellorsville to compare. Did something change?

You might be interested in the remake designed by Mark Simonitch (my brother) for GMT games. He and I played the original many many times and he liked it so much he eventually redesigned and published it. ... ar.176705/

In my own opinion, the game seems to allow too much visibility even with extreme FOW. In a current game (Port Gibson from Vicksburg) I was able to spot a regiment crossing the suspension bridges several miles away from a point in the wilderness east of Town (if you have ever visited the Port Gibson ...

It's my understanding that so many Rebs dropped out of this Tournament that we Federals who remain have lost the opportunity to play MP campaigns and we are now matched up 1:1 against other Federals which must now reluctantly play as Confederate. This is an unfortunate turn of events for this otherw...

I just picked up Ageod's CWII at the Matrix sale and was a big fan of the legacy version of the first one. Just getting into it and it looks like there are some good improvements with respect to expanding the economic options and improving the UI. There is a lot under the hood that needs to be learn...
