Re: Set Up for SOWWL NAPOLEON GAMES For Kriegspiel style

Post  Morealive on Mon Jul 06, 2015 7:54 pm

I have tried to mod the Spain_Valverde; the Location IDs were left on the original Valverde and it bothered me to pinpoint a Spanish Brigade to Bear Ridge instead of Camino de something, so I changed that on the *.csv; still no joy; I assume something has to be changed the *.lsl but again I might be wrong; I see there's a PowerRender in the game to read/edit, but the V I downloaded didnt help me on reading the codes, looks like the free V of PowerRender doesn't read this type of files.
I have only tested a few SPain or PT maps so far so I don't know if the game crashes with the non-country's at this point.

@Mr. Digby: Well for what it's worth, I managed to size the 2 Carlistas minimaps to the WL viewer, so if anyone plan to add them up I can always forward them since they are done. The original designer Crickey mentioned me he wasn't happy on the ratio with WL sprites vs map elements; I guess to use them the best would be to edit the units csv to change the size ratio, but who knows I'll try it later. I dont know which toolbar you refer to, the Grog's?

No the WL toolbar. Kevin is rebuilding it from scratch I think. The vanilla one is pretty useless.

Hi -
I installed the latest KS Napoleon mod just now but the Toolbar is missing things.

I can no longer put all subcommanders on TC (the 4 flag button). What am I doing wrong?

You are not doing anything wrong. That button is not on the KS toolbar. The mod is developed with HITS play in mind. TCing everything tends to lead to the destruction of your command fairly quickly. Try using the different stances on the orders menu to make your brigades behave as you'd like. TC only as a last resort.

Ok thanks.

Now another question - if I click on the Package box as described above 3-4 times, it dissappears but SoWWL seems to freeze up at the Planting Shrubbery bit. I cant get that to work. All the mods are installed in the game.

Use only the maps that start with a country name or the Waterloo maps.

Now it's time to make a few manual changes to the sowwl.ini file. It will be found in the My Documents\SowWL folder. Open it and scroll down until you find the section titled [Custom]
Find and change the value found for MPplyrradius to MPplyrradius=2
You can also change the value of plyrradius to plyrradius=2 This way you can practice commanding in single player at this camera height.
Now find the section titled [Initialization]
Add the following line: aicount=55
It doesn't matter where you put it in that section. This will make the AI a bit more clever.
Now save the changes you just made. You are finished and ready to play.


Do all players need to do this or just the host?

The host can set the camera height. Currently, we are using 10 yd. because of the difficulty in seeing the movement arrow. aicount should be added to everyone's ini file. This will also affect SP.

Thanks for the work on this which I have just downloaded. I have major graphical problems when I launch the game with the mods enabled with large black boxes and low res features all over the map. Even as the battle is loading the usual information at the bottom of the screen that whizzes by is not visible (just a black box). Any ideas?

First, welcome to the forum.
You are probably running Win8 or 10.  You must set the game compatibility to Win7.  If you don't know how to do that, check the 1st post in this thread. SOWWL Compatibility

KS Mod Crash?

Post  cyrano on Thu Sep 10, 2015 2:36 am

So this is one I've not seen posted.

I think I have everything in order...downloaded, saved, selected, &c,

When I launch the scenario (SP or MP, non-standard), it gets to the point where it's loading shrubbery...lots of shrubbery...and then it just crashes to desktop. No error message...no nothing.

Any thoughts you lot have would be welcome!

Jim

You should just play with maps that start with a country name. Austria, France, Poland a and so on.

Moreover, there are some maps that are imported from the GB game and you need to add some .lsl files as a mod, in case you own GB.

The stock Waterloo maps will work as well of course.

Thanks Billy

Post  johnorei on Fri Sep 11, 2015 6:57 pm

That sorted my graphical issues thanks. I'm a bit confused now as to how to setup scenarios for play. If I load a regular scenario the graphical changes seem to be in place but none of the UI nor tactical changes. I would like to setup scenarios from the waterloo battle and indeed the entire battle itself. Do I have to do so manually or can I download scenario files?

Thanks

Very, very few mods will work with the scenarios, they are hardcoded.

Are there directions as to how to setup scenarios? Anytime I launch a battle within the sandbox I end up with two long lines of forces facing each other and within seconds the game ends with either a major victory or defeat. All I really want to do is play the original battle with the tactical and graphical changes associated with this mod. Is this not possible?

Hi johnorei

For your sandbox games you have the setting 'line of sight' activated. Try one of the others. 'Hunt them down' setting is a good one. The stock Waterloo scenarios cannot be played with a mod.

I love this mod - but it crashes way to often. Be in the middle of a battle and bam - just crashes. I've had far larger battles in the vanilla game without issue as well.,

What battles are you fighting? Sandbox mode? What maps, what OOBs. SP or MP? Can you post your SOWWL.log file here.

The mod is stable - we've tested it for literally months, and before that the GB version was tested for years.

The mod only works with our map versions and our OOBs. Don't use stock OOBs. The mod is a complete rebuild of the game in effect and the stock OOBs do not have the tweaks ours do.

I was playing the Sandbox Campaign and got into a battle - about half way through it had a memory crash. I am playing with 1:4 sprite Ratio. The second time was when I was playing one of the maps in the map pack and when I click to open the 'map' the game crashes immediately.

Post  Mr. Digby on Sun Nov 29, 2015 9:06 am

Was the campaign using one of our OOBs or one of the stock ones? It won't work with the stock OOBs in the same way that scenarios with the stock OOBs may not work. I have played the sandbox campaign numerous times as Russians, Austrians, 1806 Prussians and our version of the Anglo-Portuguese Peninsular army. I haven't had a CTD that I can recall.

Can you say exactly which map it was that gave the CTD. We can't investigate the problem until we know that. Giving us your sowwl.log right after the CTD would be very helpful too.

I would like to help but I need for info.
