    Default Install Video for NTW 8.6 & technical issues

    The NTW3 campaigns took a vacation from the latest updates so we could work on them, they will be back with the next NTW3 v8.6 release scheduled for August
    with a new NTW3 Peninsula campaign that features Classic Battle stats, units & uniforms and MP Campaign play.



    Also included are the 1805 European campaign (War of the Third Coalition) and Ottoman campaign (with no diplomatic restrictions to declare war between the Ottomans, Austrians & Russians)
    .... the ability to declare war between these three factions was removed from the 1805 European campaign to allow the Austrians & Russians to focus on the French threat (CA hard coded a war between these three factions into the vanilla game)

    How come your not able to pick the europe as a multiplayer campaign? When you select europe (the only one there is under main 1805 campaign, if you choose classic, no maps too choose from.) you actually get to play the peninsular campaign instead? I dont want to play the peninsular only the europe.

    Lord Davn - The 1805 European campaign was not included in the NTW3 v8.3 or v8.4 releases to give us time to complete the updates. The 1805 European campaign is included with the NTW3 v8.6 release.

    BTW - I'd suggest to rename the small settlement of Brest-Litovsk that is now north of Crimea. It's obviously not the right name as the B-L was on the boarder of Poland and Belarus.

    Cannister shot is broken-does not work. Cannons begin firinging animations then stop and they are caught in a loop. Guy lights fuse, puts hands over ears waits then NOTHING happens! No shots are fired out of cannons. Please fix this bug.

    I am having the same CTD as Sigma and i'm playing as the British too, first CTD was in the Prussian turn, now it's every time on the French turn, same year, late June 1807.

    Send me your save_game files, preferably one prior to the CTD and I'll have a look at it. Sometimes it helps to back to the last turn make different moves and may have different out come. http://davn33@yahoo.com

    I had a CTD with Russia at the French turn on the Ottoman campaign at the 65th turn. I am using v8.6. Here's the save file. Thanks in advance!

    NTW was originally designed for 32-bit Operating Systems but the move to the 64-bit OS sometimes causes issues with the long campaign play. I removed the shroud and was able to see where/when the CTD occurs on turn 64. The French army attacks the Austrians just North of the town of Sarajevo. The Austrians retreat and as the French follow up their attack the CTD occurs. I reloaded your save_game file and tried several different scenarios, the one that worked was to have Buxhoeveden attack the French to change the direction of the campaign. Sometimes this helps to work around CTD's, especially late in the campaign. Try it for yourself and see if it works.

    Here is the download for the work around the CTD at the beginning of the next turn 65: http://www.mediafire.com/file/m14ifm...8_65.save/file

    While a minor detail that should be corrected, it may cause other problems with the campaign map if the towns name is changed.

    Thanks for the reply but I can't download the file. It says there's an upload error. Could you upload it again?

    I'll upload it again. You can also try fixing it yourself by having a unit from Buxhoeveden's army attack the French garrison at Belgrade in the Balkans. Unfortunately the General is the only unit left with any movement points so you'll have to sacrifice him for the campaign. You can replace him with another General from the recruitment que. I'd also suggest adding more cavalry units to your army, especially the scout cav units. They're ideal for this situation.

    Thanks a lot! It finally worked. After your first reply I tried going forth with the general but the garrison at Belgrade did not attack me for some reason. After your second reply though, i tried again, they attacked me, I retreated, they pushed on and killed him. That garrison didn't have enough points to go back to the city so the Austrian besieged it but didn't assault although the city was practically empty. So I managed to defeat the French troops with the hidden army led by their new general and destroyed the remainder of their army at the gates of Belgrade with the help of the Austrians who lifted the siege on the next turn and went back to their province of Transylvania. I captured Belgrade and defeated an invading Spanish army.

    So far so good! It's the 68th turn and everything's alright! For now...

    Thanks a lot for the attention and effort in saving my campaign! I really thought it was done for good! Cheers!

    EDIT: I guess I spoke too soon... On the 75th turn I have another CTD. This time Prussia is the culprit. Is there are console command to remove the fog of war? Here's the save file.

    Default Installer can't find napoleon.exe

    After downloading the correct files as shown in the install video, I attempted to install, beginning with the core mod files, but when I ran the installer, it told me it was unable to find my executable. My steam file is in a folder called games rather than the program files (x86) as is the default, but I definitely pointed the program to the correct folder. My system is Windows 10, and if be happy to provide any other info necessary to resolve this issue.
