Hello.
I have some questions about the Horse and Musket volume II game. I plan to buy it.

Is there an approximate release date for this game now ?
Will the volume I game be updated to be brought at the same level than the volume II ?
Is an ammo rule planned for the volume II (units running out of ammo, ...) ?
Could the small issues with the tooltips (in volume I) that are difficult to read on some monitors be corrected ?

Hi,
Volume II are in beta testing. We don't know exactly when it will release. I hope end of this year but this is not sure. I don't know what price it will. Ammo rule is good suggestion I will report that.
At this point the monitor difficulties are the same but program and machine haven't been touched yet. We are fixing graphic and scenarios at this moment.

Thanks for our answer, Prinz Heinrich.

But do you know if the engine of the volume I will be updated later ?
In some companies like HPS, all the titles in a series have the same engine and the same features. They are incrementally updated when a new title arrives.
What will happen with horse and musket ?
Will the player have an old engine (volumeI) and a new one (volumeII) ?
Or will the volume I be patched to benefit from the new features (indirect fire, 5 levels of command...) ?

Well don't know it is still around..... I think it is imposible to patched Volume I to change into engine like in volume II.
There is long, very long list of features we wanna change (the Matrix crew and we - beta testers) some will sure change, some we will see it would possible during the programming. But for sure it will able to play old scenarios at new volume II.

Thanks for this info (and for your work).

If you are sure that we can copy the "old" scenarios in volume II directory to play them with the new engine, it is okay for me.

End of this year/early next year sounds good, and I'm sure it'll have been worth the wait, I'm definitely looking forward to it a lot, and hopefully I'll be able to get into some MP games then as well.

Hello, i dont post here too much , yet this is one of my favourite game engines..
Wonder if anyone in the know could give a peep or two about the status of future releases?  ( maybe a great northern war or , clutching heart,  30 years war??)  Ha ha , I know, not in the cards but there is a fan base out there for those eras! ( and i think this engine could do justice to the pike and shot timeline with only a few tweeks)

I recently re-installed Volume I for the heck of it. And not to be sarcastic or mean-spirited, but I am not worried. Too much time has gone by. Volume II would have to be light-years ahead of its predecessor. And maybe even support 1680x1050? Between the 1990s graphics, sound and muddled interface, I just couldn't play Volume I again. And I tried.

The editor is great though

Well, that's the best news since months ...

Is there a way to help the team? I'm planing to do some new units (for example Prussian dragoons in their early white uniform). If there's interest, please let me know.

Nooooooooooooooo! Don't do it. Most Prussians new unit have been already done, but appeared in Volume II. It is including Prussians Dragoons. If you want to make some units just tell me which one and I will tell you they are done or not. Look on the Saxons, they still need Flagbearers officers and Drummers ;)
Think maybe about Reichsarmy units or maybe Polish army? I would be able to make some scenarios for Great NW and War of Polish Succesion.

Right now we (ME and RYAN) thinking about update old scenario and make it more interesting to played from Austrians side. I got allready few new scenario made, but wait for engine Volume II because it will be much, much more interesting (developed command chain, howitzers, and so on).

So I better won't do it ...

OK, Reichsarmee and Saxons is a good idea; I already noticed that the latter ones are missing flagbearers and officers. (Although making new flags would be a considerable challenge for me, but I'd try my best.)

Concernig the Reichsarmee: How about Kurpfalz Garde zu Fuß and Kurmainz Infantry (both present in the Zinna scenario)?

Yeah, why not Reichsarmee need some new graphic. I have use the existing one. Better idea is to try making waggons graphic :)

OK, so I'll try my luck with the Reichsarmee. Will be a cut and paste/paint orgy for the next few weeks to come ...

I also would like to see waggons in the game. Wasn't it Magnus plan to do some for Vol. 2?

He said about that, but I doubt he would work on it.
