HITS Scenario “The 11th Corps pushes on”.





Situation
On May 22th, elements of the Union’s 11th Corps attacked the city of Fredericksburg. The fighting was small-scale skirmishing. The resistance by the Confederate garrison was minimal as they clearly didn’t expect an attack at this point. Within hours, the city was fully occupied by Union forces and the Rebels were pushed back westwards beyond Marye’s Heights.

On May 23th (today), the advancing Federal regiments encountered Confederate pickett lines north of Alum Springs Mill…

Orders
Will be given to the two CinCs before battle. [Any volunteers? Orders will be sent by mail or prior to game start in TS]

Commands
With 6 players, each will have at least a division to command. With more players, also brigade commands are possible.

Carry-over feature
If desired, a sequal scenario may be created later.

Requirements
Add-on Chancellorsville
Latest Couriers and Maps mod

Time
Game Start is Friday 20h30 UK time. Please meet in TS at 20h15 and make sure to have the right mods (de-)activated ;-)

I would normally volunteer for the Union CinC. But since I won't know if I can play Friday till the last minute, it wouldn't be a good idea.

Allright, it seems we can make an Italian side with Mitra, Sargon and Berthier, right? Is Sinbad the new Italian player?
You are encouraged to write courier messages in plain english if close by the enemy  study  , just kidding.
You will be on the Union side. I will try to send you the orders by mail.

This would make the 2 Martins and me as the Confederates.

More players can be added as ususal before game start at 20h30.

Mitra/Leffe - happy to play in either scenario, subject to the above.

I'm afraid I must agree with Stefan on this one. The brutal junta that has installed itself must be overthrown.  bom

That's easy for you to say, you're 5,000 miles away!  How is my bunker in Colorado coming along by the way?  I'll need fake ID, and a plastic surgeon too. Suspect

Surrender? I have only just begun to surrender...........

Yes, Stefan, he's Sinbad. I think he will start with a single brigade for this match

I've decided to play tomorrow, and have adjusted the doodle accordingly. This does have the advantage that there will be at least 6 for each session. Sorry I cannot play your scenario, Stefan.

Have a good game today, everyone.

Submission in the lounge sounds quite good fun. Worth missing an SoW game for at any rate. Have fun Martin!  affraid

Major Malfunction

Post  WSH Baylor on Sat May 24, 2014 12:08 am

Stephan, Diggers, et. al.

Had a major computer malfunction and took me 3 hours to find out what was wrong. Extremely sorry to cause you fine folks difficulties in playing your game. My most sincere apologies.

Best to all.

You didn't miss much. Another wasted evening because people didn't have their game and mods set up correctly. Established players who bring in new players really should arrange a test session with the newcomer to ensure their MP game is working right.

Indeed, after waiting 30min for you Jack, we tried unsuccessfully to start a standard game for another 30min. That was when I headed to bed. I dont think the problem was the new player alone. When Davide hosted, 4 of 6 players dropped and I couldnt see any hint in the log. I couldnt even see the mentioned mapmismatch.

Lesson for me is to use the waiting time for all players to show up for hosting test-runs! Kevin has mastered that process  Wink 

People who delete parts of a mod shall make sure their mod is in proper state the next time...! If doing that you should always keep a the original mod and adjust only a copy of the mod.

The scenario will be played at another opportunity.

My fault guys, we discovered the problem was a mod which makes map bigger and that he thought to have deactivated but probably entered in conflict with the courier&maps; we entered in lobby at the 21:00 (during the week we had no the possibility) for the check but the problem with his microphone which brokes suddendly after few minutes we are in ts complicate the things. At the end I connect to him PC with Teamviewer and I manage to switch  to PC microphone, change the TS microphone and deactivate the mods and the game ran playing a short match.

Please note it is note Francesco fault, because he proposed to leave and play another time when the phone broke, but I insisted for solve the problem, sorry again.

I have several Nappy scenarios we can choose from.  If we play one of those, Road to Wagram and the KS Napoleon mod will be needed.  The thread with the file links is here: Nappy Mods

If Kevin needs a NappyPoo, that is fine. Shouldn't stay up that late! I will stay awake and vote for Mitra's Trevilian Station! "Nuff said!" LOL
