I agree Martin, visually it feels much more Napoleonic. I have lots of screenshots from that battle. Will post some up in the next day or so. What I like about WL is the units are spaced so much further apart, a brigade in columns of division abreast seems to occupy at least 1/4 mile, maybe more. Here's one panoramic shot (2 screens stitched together) of one of my brigades descending from the ridge crest to a preparatory position half way down to the river. This was just before the Austrian cavalry stopped my advance dead in its tracks and I had to send an urgent messenger to Kevin to bring cavalry.

Another shot of the opening act of the action on my flank as my voltigeurs go forwards to worry a brigade of Austrian landwehr.

I said afterwards in TS that all the game needed was some edited-in close-ups of Rod Steiger and Christopher Plummer and it would look like a movie.

Sorry I had to leave last night, I was so tired and the game wasn't anything like as exciting as the previous one!

How did things go?

The game seemed very stable at that courier level so we could use that for now as it's almost the same as the couriers by brigade level.

You were about to be enveloped. Up to the time you left, we had only engaged less than 1/3 of the enemy force. Defeating that small contingent seems to have angered Archduke Charles and he began mobilizing the rest of his army.

Taff also left not long after you and the game crashed. It wasn't a bad frame in packet, but a crash to desktop. We had that happen once before when a couple people left. I have no idea what causes it. In spite of that, I think we can say we successfully played another courier game. We should try a full courier game this weekend with the enhanced courier numbers.

I was playing an SP game just now. The KS 1815 Brit OOB vs French & corps vs corps and had a crash to desktop about 50 minutes in. The log file shows a lot of "bad formation ID: -1" lines. They get progressively more numerous until the game log ends like this:

The log ends there.

Early on I had a very small number of these and they all appeared right after Major Cramm, the Brunswick cavalry brigade commander received a messenger:

08:30:54 MESSENGER ARRIVED,Major von Cramm
08:30:54 BAD FORMATION ID: -1

I also had a few of these:

08:34:52 Formation DRIL_LVL4_CAV_COLUMN cannot support additional unit type:2

I still have the log if you want to see it.

Any ideas Kevin?

Yes, those are formations that are not listed in unitglobal that the AI is trying to use. It will be corrected in the next version. I hope to have it uploaded tomorrow.
