  • Can't speak for other's, but some of the best college football entertainment has been happening for the last eight hours (since your 1st post).

    Lots of MP folks here, be patient and ask around...I guarantee you'll get invites from the established groups. Lots of independents lurking also, just hookup in the lobby.

    And Welcome... :)

    Thank you for the information about the College Football. I am not a sports fanatic at all but, I don't oppose of sports.

    Lots of MP folks here, be patient and ask around...I guarantee you'll get invites from the established groups. Lots of independents lurking also, just hookup in the lobby.


    I am from the GCM community and I have played HITS but, I am willing to expand and play other things. I also like playing stock Gettysburg games and plus, I am getting into modifying maps thanks to Mister Norbs approval. :D

    And Welcome... :)


    Thank you. :D

  • Hi

    Did you try HITS with our group? We use a 1st person view. I don't remember meeting you in a game. We're playing almost exclusively Napoleonics at the moment though, so if that doesn't appeal...

    We do play ACW occasionally and if we get a real ACW fan along we'll set a scenario up.

    We play about once a week on Saturdays, usually at 20:00 GMT which is mid afternoon across most of the USA.

  • Hi

    Greetings.

    Yes, I have played with your group about once or twice maybe three times.

    We're playing almost exclusively Napoleonics at the moment though, so if that doesn't appeal... We do play ACW occasionally and if we get a real ACW fan along we'll set a scenario up.


    It's not that the Napoleonic scenarios are unappetizing, it's just I am a civil war buff and that's pretty much why I purchased the game. What scenarios do you play from the ACW Theatre? Do you play Eastern Or Western Theatres?

    We play about once a week on Saturdays, usually at 20:00 GMT which is mid afternoon across most of the USA. Link in my sig,


    I do appreciate your effort and time that you have taken to make this response but, I am not going to guarantee anything to you.

  • Hi Eddy

    I'm part of the same group as Saddletank. We have ben playing a lot of Napoleonics recently, but I'm planning to do some ACW stuff when there's a gap in the program.

    Sounds good but, what theatre are you arranging to do in the ACW, Eastern or Western?

  • A mixture. I like to ring the changes, so it may be the Eastern Theatre (but in say 1861), or Mississippi in 1863, of Western Louisiana in 1864. I also like to try and have the correct OOBs, flags etc for the theatre and period.

    It will probably not be Antietam, C'Ville or Gettysburg.

    That combination will be entertaining indeed but, I still can't guarantee that I will participate or not. It depends upon what happens on that particular day.

    I do respect a man who wants to get things historically accurate. B)

  • I got a small group that plays co-op against the AI. Me and 2 others are the regulars..............the holidays have sort of tossed us off our usual time table of noon EST on Sunday's.

    All 3 of us play at the Corps level with a Corps each. But I can always gin up a 3rd div in a Corps if your are more comfortable at that level of play. We mainly have cameras set at 700 meters setting just because we like to see what is happening after the AI wipes one of us out.

    Our battles are usually open ended time limit and a usual game time of almost 4 hours. We use the scenario generator (well I do) to set up our battles. Usual is about 60,000 of us versus 80,000+ for the AI.

    If interested, shoot me a PM here and I will try and get you set up to join us. Bear with us as the holidays have blown our schedules out of the water a bunch. We use Flag and Bugle mod XIII (only because we had some issues with the newest version we have not sorted out yet). We all have every Matrix release plus Lynchburg loaded up and a ton of maps.

    Also we use courier in game but have been known to just in game chat just because and such. We slacked a bunch on the courier just because the messages can be hilarious when a Reb Corps appears in our rear area unseen.

    No. All of our scenarios, whether Napoleonic or ACW, are purpose-built. And we only very rarely replay them.

    Not knocking the stock scenarios at all. NSD have put a lot of time and effort into making them good.

    It's just that we like to put ourselves as far as possible in the shoes of the real generals. An example is realistic fog-of-war. Its difficult to have that if the players know the scenario, and have perhaps already played it SP.

    Regards

    Martin

  • Hey Jack

    I can see it must all have tried your legendary patience :)

    Yes hopefully in the next few weeks, subject to gaps in the calendar. I want to give Digby first option in case he has Peninsular War campaign battles to fight. First up may be something very different - a cavalry raid scenario, set in the Appalachians in early 1863.
