  1. Re: Relevance of Clausewitz's theory of war on modern wars

    Greatest I agree with. Last lesso, but close enough.

    A lot of his cabinet wars and their politics have a number of parallels with more recent ones in a couple of dimensions. Comparing and...
  2. Re: Relevance of Clausewitz's theory of war on modern wars

    Personally, I think Clausewitz is still fairly relevant, at least when adapted. Problem is that some of the fissures that have been in his theories since the industrial revolution are starting to pop...
  3. Re: Frederick the Great-a military genius or mediocre?

    As somebody who has studied the era and the Prussian military more than I probably should have, honestly class Frederick as a gifted and spirited neophyte who stood out in an era where- to put it...

    It's an honor to help, and if there's any way I could assist further, don't hesitate. I'm far more acquainted with modern history (say- Victorian onwards, especially Victorian to the Early Cold War),...

    Re: Launcher problems

    Sorry for the delay. I feel like a bit of a moron not replying.

    That sounds pretty unusual. Firstoff, I'd suggest looking at the launcher and opening it in properties (right clock, Properties,...

    Re: Online Musket Simulation

    Correct and a very good point. Which is why I generally find it better to aim well back or above. Eyes closer to the top of the butt or with the entire face a bit above it. That helps keep the sparks...
  10. Re: Asia Empires: the new order,a mod about 17th Eastern Asia

    For the record, the Red-Green Portuguese flag is actually a Republican flag used in opposition to the monarchy. It was only created centuries later and adopted after the Monarchy fell. And even the...

    More or less exactly what it says on the tin here. Khartoum-Zulu is one of the tragic but promising orphans of Napoleon modding. While it's not a world-shaking mod it is a great little one and I...

    Thanks for the answer. Seems like a sad missed opportunity, though.

    Re: Launcher problems

    Can you launch it the dirty way through the .bat file? Or does that still take you to vanilla Medieval II?
  22. Re: War for the Colonies: a m2tw americas campaign mod

    I'm sorry for the delay everyone. It's just that I've mainlined several hours just doing a marathon troubleshooting session to get this to work. Suffice it to say, it's been an ungodly pain in the...
  24. Re: some possible ideas for unigue script events

    I'm aware of that and that it does not contradict what I said.

    Which is why I added the qualifier "lasting cities." This was an era where even the Chinese Emperors and Koreans tended to shift...

  27. Sticky: Re: A basic tactical manual for 1648 v.2 pike and shot warfare

    This is an addendum to the post just prior.

  29. Sticky: Re: A basic tactical manual for 1648 v.2 pike and shot warfare

    This is a noble effort, but there are several catastrophically dubious points in this. Most of it is good and something I agree with- and the contemporary sources are much appreciated-, so I'll stick...
