Hello fellow commanders!

I've played through most of the french scenarios and am looking forward to joining some good multiplayer matches. My experience in these kind of games is limited. But I do love muskets and horse warfare. I used to play Sid Meiers Gettysburg and its expansions back in the days but only versus the ai.

Is there any matches coming up soon? Any tips on how to set me up would be good Smile

Welcome to the forum. We usually play several days a week. Monday may be our next game. The simplest thing to do is watch the forum for announcements.

We play both player vs player and co-op against the AI. It is very good when the players are commanding from the saddle using courier orders. Players of any experience are welcome. If you do not have much experience playing from the saddle of with the game in general, you can start out commanding just a brigade in another player's division. If you feel you can handle a larger unit, then division commands are available. That's what most players use.

You'll need the 3 KS mods. The download links can be found here: KS Napoleon Mods

You will also want to download TeamSpeak as that is how we communicate before and after the game, and also if we have a problem and have to restart the game. This means you'll need a mic and maybe headphones.

Thank your for the reply. I'm setting up teamspeak and downloading the mods as we speak. I think my weak abilities are most suited for a infantry brigade. Smile

Welcome. By all means, join us when you can.

Cavalry is always hard to manage. If you do not want it to become involved in a fight, move it away from the action and give it a hold at all costs stance. If you want it to harass the enemy forces, give it a defend stance and bring it closer to the fighting. If you want it to behave very aggressively towards the enemy, especially their artillery or cavalry, give it a probe stance. However, you may find it impossible to regain control once they set off to attack. pale
