Mad dog, are you trying this game solitaire? Let us know how it's coming along, I still haven't opened the box


I am playing it solo. I've got scenario 6A on the table, which involves only a singe NVA arty attack and then an assault. I've done the arty attack, which is just one die roll. I still have to go back and do the assault (it was quite late when I set the scenario up, and the assault rules are fairly involved). There are some good AARs on Boardgamegeek of several of the training scenarios--worth checking out to give you an idea of the gameplay.

I don't know how many of these Silver Bayonet missions I'll get to in the near future...I'm really trying to get into the Grand Tactical Series, and I will be play testing a squad level game that GMT is publishing later this year as soon as I get the play test stuff from the designer. As much as I want to get into SB, I don't know how much more room there is in my head for game rules right now :).

Can you guys place a picture of what it looks like with the folders? I hate deleting things and unsure about placement of the stuff

Another big thanks for reinvigorating this game!!!

Purely on a whim I was reinstalling the original Lock 'n Load on a new pc and happened to come back to these forums and saw this thread - I had to keep reading it to make sure it was true!!

I've got Heroes of the Pacific and Normandy working which is so cool - especially since the Swift and the Bold was never in print when I bought physical copies of the games.

And thanks to everyone who's been adding scenarios.

What's the best method for playing some of these mods. I don't understand the directions on installing and uninstalling the original files. Do you delete files before installing the mod files?

Or
Is game a better method?

Difficult to help you without knowing certain things:
-as you used to manipulate files?
-as you already use JSGME?
I advise you to use the method of MaitreBongo which is at the beginning of the thread if you are not at ease with the files.
If you have already used JSGME, please use the thread New scenario LNL Vietnam65 in the thread Mods and Scenarios.
Good Luck!

VPaulus in a previous post # 66. this worked for me. a little more difficult was the placing of some of the user scenarios within the
mods themselves.

Sequence for installing the game and GME:

1. Install the game and update to 1.10.
2. Open the game installation folder and cut the folder named "Maps" to a folder outside the game main installation folder.
3. Install GME.
4. Run GME.
5. Click on "Tasks" and select on the drop down menu "Generate snapshot of game files".
6. Open the game installation folder, find a folder named "MODS", open it and create three folders, named "HoS", "CWM" and "HotP".
7. Copy the "Maps" folder (the one you have copied in step 2) to the "HoS" folder. (...\Lock n Load Heroes of Stalingrad\MODS\HoS\Maps)
8. Unzip the Module #1 : Cold war file ("Cold-War-Mod.zip"). You should get four extracted folders ("art", "maps", "Mod Heroes of the Gap Honneur et Patrie" and "Stalingrad") and a file ("modules.dat"). Just copy these folders and file to the "CWM" folder (...\Lock n Load Heroes of Stalingrad\MODS\CWM)
9. Unzip the Module #2 : Heroes of the Pacific file ("Heroes-of-the-Pacific-Mod.zip"). You should get two extracted folders ("art", and "Mod Heroes of the Pacific") and a file ("modules.dat"). Just copy these folders and file to the "HotP" folder (...\Lock n Load Heroes of Stalingrad\MODS\HotP)

Enable the module you wish to play on the GME window. Don't forget to disable the mod you have selected before enabling other mod.




Thank You! I had to create separate copies of the game to get the mods to work!!!!

...and yes JSGME goes in the HoS main folder....

...and yes,yes...you MUST delete the MAPS folder and/or move it out of the main HoS folder....
