But our discussion is because I think we have too high a %age of troops who can sk and we are looking at ways to reduce that.

Legere shuldn't be able to skirmish in 100% like now - same logic as for British lights. On the other hand Grenzers that specialised in skirmish should be able to do so.

Oh, sure, with board games you could have all sorts of ad hoc rules because everyone had to be in the same room to play them. Computers open up worlds of possibilities but the limits of the game engine block things you'd like to do. I'm frequently amazed by what modders can do. They literally saved games like TW Empire from the scrap heap.

I have downloaded and installed patch 1.01, KS Sprites Mod 1.03, KS Napoleon Mod II 1.24, and KS SOW Supplemental  Maps Mod 1.16.

I have also made all the recommended option changes including those in the SowWL Folder.

Something is still wrong with my game though.

If I push the mods panel the game crashes so I can’t actually select any of the mods I just downloaded.

If I try for any scenario the game just freezes every time.

I am only able to get into a sandbox game, but even there it does no seem to work.

I have windows 10.

I initially had trouble with Gettysburg, but not like this. In that game I kept crashing at some point in the battle but up to that point all was working. I finally solved it (I think) by getting a better router.

In Waterloo  I’ve tried tinkering via the windows compatibility mode.

I’ve tried starting both as an administrator and not.

So as things stand now My SOWWL game does not work.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Regards Jess

I had a similar problem a few days ago and 'fixed' it by re-booting. I actually don't know what happened but Windows 7 sorted itself out. Sounds like you may have already done that, though.

Jess is your game with STEAM?

I had these same issues about a year ago.

Also have you downloaded the Direct X9 files to your PC since you are using WIN 10?  I think it may have come
with one of the past patches.

Have you uninstalled and reinstalled the game after cleaning out your registry in case a file within the game has become corrupted?

Put SOW GB/WL in WIN7 Compatibility mode too. Then try the game.

After you answer the above questions we can go from there.

We will get it figured out and if you do not know how to do some of things it is better not to try them without someone to guide you through it.

Hi All and thanks

I think I will dump the game and start over.

Excellent news. Do our usual game times suit you? Or would you be able to join us on a non-work day (Sunday) at 20:00 BST?

Almost any Sunday from now until the end of time is good for me.

2000 BST is 1200 my time. (California)

So I'll show up and be prepared to die. (smile)

Meanwhile besides the mods that came with the game, and the three KS mods.

What should my Mods section look like?

Is it standard procedure to add anything else?

Just remember, the square is your friend when cavalry is about.  Cool   If you don't, have a crying towel handy.  Sad

We also play on Mon. Wed. and sometimes Fri.  We have a game today at 11:00 PST if you can join us.  The place to look is the Impromptu Games thread.

The only mods you need to have activated are the three KS mods.  Do not activate the Grog Toolbar, (it will not work with the KS mod), or any others that come with the stock game.  You can also use the More Smoke mod if you like, but it is not required.  It causes the smoke from rifle and cannon fire to hang in the air much longer than the stock game.

Sunday is the soonest I can make it this week, I will keep my eye out for impromptu game notes starting next week though. I liked the smoke addition to ACW battles so I'll add it to these as well, only not yet. It will be good to see my destruction approaching for awhile while I'm learning.

Thanks Jess

There's a 'realistic smoke' mod out there and also a 'smoke lite' one as well. I find the realistic one is a little too realistic - you can't see a damned thing! In the case of these smoke mods IIRC the GB ones work with WL.
