Thanks for your profound answer. I'd also like to know what I can do about allied divisions not moving at all to the objective resulting into me fighting enemy corps on my own.
I'm not aware of what OOB that was concerning the Russian army, I've tried two Russian scenarios and didn't pay much attention.
I'd like to try multiplayer, though I'm an unexperienced player, especially when it comes to commanding divisions, and may let other players down by failing.

You should join us, we use Team Speak 3 to communicate with, we set up the game and then use the courier system to communicate with for orders.  Games are posted on the forum under impromptu games and usually start at 20:00 BST or 3pm EST.

We were all new at one time and you can take a small brigade to start with and when you are ready move to something bigger.

Hope to see you soon.

If you need information about Team Speak let me know and I can direct you to the download and the information for the KS server.

Which sandbox type did you select? The game's sandbox logic is not very advanced and odd things can happen. It depends if you were using 'attack', 'defend', or 'hunt them down', or also how many objectives there were. Sadly in sandbox the AI will ignore every objective except one and focus only on that.

Try using a single objective and set the mode to attack, then play a division in the attacking side. Or set it to defend and take a division of the defending side. I find that these two play options give the better games.

Hello Mr Digby,
              I just tried the v122 version & it is defently an approvement however I still struggle with the transparency of the toolbar. So would it be possible to reinstate the solid background like the grog toolbar as a separate version. I know you said it might be possible as long as the functioning interface wasn't changed but I was wondering if there was any chance one of your great modders could include a version with the OOB navigation arrow buttons included as I don't use a keyboard.

Hi Roy, good to see you.

We could probably reintroduce a solid background version but I don't think we will include the navigation buttons since every other player uses a keyboard and its so much faster to use that. The background is a fairly easy task, the extra buttons is a lot more work and we'd only be doing it for one person.

Thank you that would help me a lot. I understand about the navigation buttons, I'll just have to go out & buy another wireless keyboard as the onscreen keyboard is doing my head in pale . Thanks again for your help.

If you want the wooden background for the toolbar, open the toolbar.layout file in a text editor. Change the 4th line from <Property key="Alpha" value="0"/> to <Property key="Alpha" value="1"/> Save it and the transparency is gone. The file is located in the KS Napoleon Mod II 1.22\Layout folder.

Thank for your answer but i've succeed in playing KS simply ( problem with 7 zip resolved )
The game run perfectly. I've tried SP sand box Austria 1806 for 4-5 hours in order to get familiar with the mod. Playng as Division General HITS, what i've seen for the moment is the most perfect Napoleonian Wargame i've ever played. ( My first board game in the 80's was " Napoléon à Austerlitz ".......). Need time again and trying to play MP .
Thank you hundred times.

Pleased to hear you got it working. You're welcome to join us for an MP game as well. We are also running a campaign at the moment.

OOB KS 2 questions

Post  HUSSARD BLANC on Mon Sep 12, 2016 1:33 pm

Hello everybody,

1st question:What is the difference between OOB KS and OOB KS- SQN ????

2nd question: on poland 1807 OOB's and Austria OOB's 1806 playing French, I've notice that the commander of the cavalry brigade appears two time for example you've got Antoine LASALLE as Brigade commander and another Antoine LASALLE as regiment commander ( the same person two time on the map surbodonner of hymself ). Is it normal ????

Hope you understand my bad english ....

Thank for answering .

Good week !!!

Welcome to the forum.

OOB_KS_SQN_ have the cavalry in squadrons. The other OOBs have the cavalry arranged in regiments. We have found that by having the cavalry in regiments, the cavalry is used in a more historic way. The KS group uses this for all corps sized battles. The squadron OOBs are there in case the player wants to create smaller scenarios where it is important to have the cavalry broken into smaller units.

Historically, there are several instances where a division commander was also the commander of a brigade. You'll find this in many of the OOBs. In those cases, the name will appear twice or the brigade may be commanded by the division commander's ADC.

I hadn't realised that was the case with dual named commanders. If a brigade commander was promoted to command the division the senior regiment officer would then command the brigade. This happened a great deal in the British army in the Peninsular and you frequently find brigades commanded by colonels or lieutenant-colonels.

Thank you for the answers.

Will try to make a commander of division and brigade ( Lasalle for example...) being killed to see who will take is place. A single or two different commander ....

Sorry for my questions if they look silly.

Just the commander is killed and replaced. His doppelganger stays on the field.

Yes, artillery has been modded to be historically accurate. In the stock game, there was no reason to even have it on the field. It was useless.

KS mod crash

Post  wokajimbo on Wed Sep 14, 2016 2:46 am

Greetings. I've followed the instructions in this thread to the letter, but I'm finding the game will crash just after loading in Sandbox mode. I am using XP. Could that be the issue?

Example last few lines from log file:

08:00:00 Planting Shrubbery . . . A Lot of Shrubbery
08:00:00 Total Collision Objs:117
08:00:00 Drafting Chain of Command
08:00:00 Chain of Command: Top Commander Général de Division Andoche Junot
08:00:00 Chain of Command: Top Commander General-Poruchik Nikolay Rayevsky
08:00:00 Loading Battle Events
08:00:00 SowWL Level Loaded...
08:00:00 02:19:54

Any help much appreciated.

What map were you using? Be sure to use only maps that have a country name in them.

That was on one of the Austria maps. This is happening on all the country name maps I try so far.

Make sure you do not have the KS mod folders inside another KS mod folder. This is a common problem. Open one of the mod folders, for example, KS Napoleon II 122. If you see another folder with the same name inside the first, that's the problem. Just pull the inner one, (it has the needed files, out of the outer one and delete the outer one.

Post  wokajimbo on Wed Sep 14, 2016 3:17 pm

Thanks for your help. I checked the file structure (which was correct), then I took a closer look at my log files and noticed it said I was running version 1.0005. Auto-update obviously hadn't worked properly, so I tried installing 1.01 again and now I'm up and running! Entirely my fault. Really fantastic work. Can't wait to explore this mod further. The only error I'm getting now is that sometimes sprites partially submerge into the ground until I move the camera.

This will happen at times if you are playing on the maps used in the Vanilla game. Good thing that the mod has many other maps that don't have this issue.

Hello,

on the steam version of Scourge of War Waterloo
I made some tests with and without the mod files
and it seems that with the mod files, when i select a unit and go on the "column" button, there is an error message "Scourge of War Waterloo stopped to work" and back to windows

I tried with and withtou the "toolbar expanded-grog"

I did follow the first page install indications,

any idea what happened?

Thanks!
