A visit to Castiglione/Solferino and Rivoli battlefields

For those who like to check if Napoleon's Eagles historical maps are enough detailed I took the chance to visit (although not in the proper way and time) both Castiglione and Rivoli battlefields, I hope you enjoy (Rivoli will follow next days) https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/ntwhbclub/a-real-aar-my-...

Re: Not a request, just for information.

It would take a professional team of modders considerable time to update the Napoleon Total War game to the Rome/Atilla standards given all of changes to the db tables and file structure. Best is to hope that CA revisits the Napoleon wars with one of their new releases that we could work with. They...

Re: Saalfeld

I put Ligny on stand by and took back these old files from Davidov to finish this minor battle which can however be suitable for good 1vs1 or 2vs2.

Re: Release of Napoleon's Eagles version 8.0

We toasted at the new version with a hard fought Marengo 2vs2, replay and discussion at NE forum No lag no crash, 2vs2 definitely the way to go although harder to manage more units but also more realistic without all front simultaneously engaged. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/ntwhbclub/marengo-2v2...

Re: Battle of Ligny, Napoleon's last victory

This is huge...no clue how the french can win here, the prussian fortress looks impenetrable. Scale doesn't help in this case of regimental size infantry. I guess we really need low accuracy for prussian to avoid a french carnage. Maybe the battalion scenario will show a better balance between frenc...

Re: Battle of Ligny, Napoleon's last victory

Some decent progess on Ligny, units are done with enough details for facing variations. Roster is quite large, 221 units for the regimental scenario with Durutte's division included as option and 220 for the battalion level scenario without Grouchy/III Prussian Corps
Next the map...

Re: Great generals with tiny tiny unit/staff

Moreover, generals did seldomly die on the battlefields. I think that Lannes, Bessieres, Lasalle, D'Hautpoul, Desaix would disagree. Napoleonic wars were not modern type of warfare where generals stay in confortable button rooms. Even Napoleon, not only general but Emperor, was wounded at Ratisbon.

Re: Vanilla Music Mod for NTW3

May I suggest in this case to make a movie pack with just the music file, in this case fx1 will remain the same and you should have no compatibility issue. If working you can then pass the small pack instead of the whole fx1.pack which is huge. I think it's better to remove the link until you know f...

Re: Battle of Sagunto

Both are Cazadores a caballo, my guess is that Montana means from the mountains

1810 ??? - Cazadores de Montaña de Avila (cavalry)
1812 July – absorbed Compañia de: Cuenca, Madrid, & Extremadura.
1813 June – amalgamated with 2º Regimiento de Cazadores a caballo

Re: Battle of Ligny, Napoleon's last victory

It's getting boring, you want to play smaller scenarios, you have plenty of them both on classic and HB or alternatively learn how to make your favourite as Ziuk did years ago when I had little interested in polish struggles like Gorzyce or Raszyn. I do my plan about what attract me and on my PC spe...

Re: Instant squares fixed!

Standalone means only that you can install HB without needing to install classic and SP and that it will have a separate launcher. Version NTW3 v4 already has this approach although they shared a common launcher. No compatibility issues can arise if they don't share any common pack providing that cl...

While I'm open to any suggestions, with HB I grant myself the ability to judge what will be a waste of time and what will not. Furthermore what is laggy today can become playable in a couple of years. I remember buying those wonderful boxes by Clash of Arms with the only masochistic plan to deploy c...
