This system is probably the best at operational level in spite of the years.
It's a shame that there is no another campaign.
Why didn't Frank continue the series by improving it (in particular for maps) ? Why ?

Yes, Curial you are right.

What a pity.

I remember there was a Napoleonic game where fog of war played a huge role.

Is this the game?

I just got this game and I like it very much. The series must not have sold very well and it came to an end. That is a shame because this game plays out well and with the fog of war can be very challenging.

I do like Frank Hunter games. He has a way of thinking up creative features for the game and generally he knows how to design a combat engine that delivers believable results for the time era being played. The only thing about Frank's games are the quirks. He never seems to work out all the bugs. For me the games are so good that I play even with the quirks, but I would like the games to be more solid.

I would really like to see this series continue as it is the only true conceptually Napoleonic game that I can justify to play. What I mean is that there are not many games that do Napoleon justice and this game is one of them. I partially blame myself as I didn't get this game until recently.

This is definitely the best operational Napoleonic game ever if you want a good miniatures battles campaign game. Best implementation of fog of war of any Naps game I've ever played.

It really is a shame. This game is amazing. I'd love to see an ACW version as well. Is it moddable in any way?

Yes it is. But it is a lot of work . There are two files for one scenario, i think *.adx and *.amx. One has all the map information in it (terrain, roads, rivers, bridges, ...) and the other one has the information of the rest, like starting date and end date (if you set the dates in a winter month it can snow), armies oobs and qualities of the units, victory conditions, etc.

If you have a lot of time and you know something about hex editing you have a chance to do all scenarios of the napoleonic wars and acw. Use a spreadsheet, where you can implement some usefull calculations.

What i don't know is, if you can change the calculations about combat, etc. But i think it's hardcoded.

IMO you can make a lot of the 18th to end of 19th era operational scenarios. I think, there aren't any railways in the code, but you can implement a date and hex, when and where a unit will arrive like reinforcements (for example Jackson on the battlefield of Bull Run).

Happy coding

I would give it a shot if I could open the .adx and .amx files. Do you know what software it would take?

Although honestly in lieu of any mods I'd rather just have a stable game that actually worked.

Agathosdaimon,

You can click on Frank's name to get to his profile page. I'm confident you can send him an email or PM from there.

I hope that helps,

~Zachary
