Will we see the "Civil War" released?

The old PC version from the late 80's sucked (SSI?). Vassel has a great graphics set.
Programmer needed!

What PC version are you talking about by SSI? All the SSI civilwar games were great as far as I can remember. Gettysburg, Antietam, Shilo and then there was Sons of Liberty (revolution war). So which was it that sucked?

In the late 80's (IIRC) someone tried to port the boardgame over to the PC. I'm not sure if it was SSI.
It was a terrible. I'm trying to find it on google but am not having much luck.

Edit: found it at the Underdogs. It was actually released by Avalon Hill in 1985

The board game was by Victory Games iirc so the computer game by AH makes sense

ahhh ok Avalon Hill yeah they made crappy PC games and mostly in ASCII if I recall cause I had Midway, Bismark and Planet Miners and Andromada Conquest. But those were faily good just crappy graphics. One of their best though was Close Assault I believe and then T.A.C. was pretty good and well Panzer Jagd was merely ok. Close Assault was like playing the board game without the cards.
