    Jury-Rigging a Launcher

    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...

    Re: anyone know which mod this is?

    That was what I was planning to do. Thanks for the reminder.

    Still, it's a shame.

    Re: anyone know which mod this is?

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

    I'd plus rep you again, but I am apparently not allowed to do that juuuust yet.
  4. Sticky: Re: A basic tactical manual for 1648 v.2 pike and shot warfare

    Sorry for the delay in responding.

    Firstly, I feel like an idiot for a mistake in my prior assessment. In the original version, it seemed to indicate that cannon focus was by those *not* fighting...

    Online Musket Simulation

    Somewhat related to the mod, but I found this recently online and I thought people here might like it.

    I have no idea, but it looks gorgeous.

    Re: Launcher problems

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

    If anybody's interested, I could try and upload a compressed file that should work with Steam seamlessly. Not sure how to get the installer in without doing the normal install and overwriting it,...

    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...
  11. 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...
  12. Re: some possible ideas for unigue script events

    Since we've talked about interventions by the Northern nomads a fair bit and scripted interventions from them, what about a script for conquering one or more of the "Planes" regions North of the...

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

  16. 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...

    Agreed with this, if nothing else. There are a fair number of resources out there, and I am certain we can cobble together a decent mod using what we already have. Even if we limited it to "The Two...

  31. Re: First Battle of the Marne - 100th anniversary

  32. Re: First Battle of the Marne - 100th anniversary

    This is playing word games. The problem isn't that we agree the BEF retreated. It clearly did. The problem is your classification of it as a "total retreat." Which fits things like the collapse of...
  33. Re: First Battle of the Marne - 100th anniversary
