Martin, thanks for your sensible suggestion. I have been tackling this for three days now and have not rushed at all, in fact being unfamiliar with computing has meant cautiousness if anything. The fact is for all but two scenarios levels are not found the only response is an immediate abort message or a loading screen in which nothing happens so ctrl alt delete out and a level not found dialog. It is a pity something is broken because the glimpse of KS I have had has been appealing. Smile

Can you open up your full SOWWL/Mods folder "tree" showing all the installed mods and take a screenshot for us? My concern is you may have an extra subfolder in there.

We also find it usually helps to talk these issues through on TeamSpeak. If you have a mic you could get online with one of us and we are often able to resolve problems pretty fast.

There's the problem. You have \KS Supplemental Maps111\KS Supplemental Maps 111. You have to remove one of those folders. It needs to look exactly like the one I posted. Does the KS Napoleon Mod II 117 have the same problem?

If you expand the KS Mod 117 and the Sprites 102 do they also have the extra folder? If so, remove the extra folder. You just need this structure:

Excellent. It will be a pleasure to ride into battle with you good sir.

User Scenarios Question

Post  pancerni on Sun Jan 24, 2016 6:38 pm

It appears that come of the user scenarios, at least French 2 and 3, require an additional set of Gettysburg map mods that are not included in the general maps mod...is that correct?

That's correct. Owners of the Gettysburg game and some of its add-ons can play all the scenarios. If you only own Waterloo you won't be able to play some of them.

That is unfortunate...not sure I want to spend $30 or more for a game I have no interest in just to access a couple of scenarios.

That's okay, no-one is suggesting you do.

You still get lots of free scenarios via the mod, its just that those who do happen to already own GB get some extra ones.

Bear in mind the KS Mod was originally a full Napoleonic conversion for Gettysburg and was played in that form for about 3 years. All of us own GB and we only last summer moved over to WL. There are several KS members who didn't buy Waterloo and may still be playing the Nap Mod for GB.

There are also some other very cool mods for GB, many more than there are for WL. These include the Indian Plains Wars (1860s to 1880s), Reisswitz (1860s fictional), Blenheim (1704), Fontenoy (1745), Carlist Wars (1830s), Tex-Mex War (1836), and others. There's actually quite a few good reasons to buy Gettysburg Wink

Just installed the KS SOWWL mods.  Working great.  Thanks to all the people who created these files.  Very impressive body of work.

I am considering trying an MP game. I still need to work on my mechanics for handling the units, especially with the new mods. Assume you allow the inexperienced players to start out with a small brigade?

You may command whatever you are comfortable with. Some players take just a battery of guns. We don't push anyone faster than they want to go and all our games are played in a spirit of good humour and fun. No-one crows about victories or gets stressed by defeats, we share the good games and the bad so I hope you'll be comfortable with our group.

BTW people frequently say "I need to get the hang of this or that before I join you" but we've found that the best and quickest way to get familiar with the game interface and mechanics is to play MP where others are there to answer questions and give advice.

Fair enough. I will try to join you today for Astorga. Perhaps a brigade of infantry to start. Thanks again.

Kevin, can you post the link to the latest dll file?  I have finally given up on steam after the latest update runtime error and have taken advantage of the current Matrix/Slitherine sale to buy a stand alone copy.  Thanks.

Thanks. The non-steam game runs considerably smoother. The difference is kind of shocking.

Also, the game is on sale this week on Matrix & Slitherine for $39.95. May be worth informing some of the people who have not bought it?

If you bought the game from Steam, it should already be patched.
