Trying to imagine a casual battle? ;-) Less stressful and fewer casualties one hopes!

Yesterday turned out to be another KS Mod testing session, with more crashes Sad

Our newest member Tom (Baillie) joined us to command a brigade but after the game crashed 40 minutes in, he had to leave. Hope we see him over the weekend.

We played a vanilla game with no mods at all; unfortunately no matter how hard we tried with courier spamming we couldn't reproduce the error.

We are trying yet another dodge and weave tactic and going back to an earlier, more stable version of the KS Mod with a small variable thrown in to try to understand why the game is crashing. We'll be using that version on Friday.

Tom, we have a game today, Friday at the same time, and another Sunday, again same time. I am not sure about Saturday but usually there are people around then as well.

Some good news - we may... may have found the reason for the recent spate of badframe crashes. Last night 3 of us played a 3 hour scenario to conclusion so we are now hopeful that future games will run to the end.

I can make a game on Wednesday, if anyone else is up for that. Happy to play anything, or continue to test Waterloo.

We are going to continue to test WL (that stands for 'what a loo'). We'll do a rerun of tonights settings to try and prove it wasn't a fluke. Its the full KS mod but using the vanilla sprites instead of the GB mod ones and a default ai.dll file which means:

Artillery doesn't turn to face a threat or target.
Artillery doesn't prioritise squares, columns and cavalry.
Skirmish split units are used.
AI defaults to lines for movement.
Couple of other minor things.

I had today off work with an upset stomach but feel better now - since its been a day of rest I am in the mood for a SoW game later - any takers?

like I said in the last battle: worst division and best result... the medals I have received by now can decorate three uniforms... A Russian Marshal these days is NOTHING compared to the amount of medals I don't even bother showing any more... anything below the VC is minor stuff..

Is north to the top? Top left? Side? And would that be true north or magnetic north?

Also can you make the town names simpler like "northville" and "centerville ... Or centreville" or "A" or "1" ?

And are air strikes available at outset or 45 minutes into the game?

We'll be playing Friday, yes.

If anyone is around for Thursday (tomorrow) we'd like to use the opportunity for more testing. We decided after tonight's series of crashes to start a proper sequence of going back to older versions of the mods that gave us some stable games and seeing how they play. We also have a good scenario now that gives us a lot of action within 10 minutes so we can get crashes quickly if they're going to happen.

Using a hybrid version of KS Nap Mod II 107 we completed a game yesterday. Next stage is to use the old GB sprites and try another game on the same mod. I think we'll attempt the Austrian battle we tried last weekend, the one where Pepe commanded and we had the green flag and red flag hills as the phase II capture points!

This game will be tonight, Friday 28 Aug at 20:00 UK time.

There's a good chance we will not have a crash and all are welcome.
