    Default NTW3 v8.9 Campaign game MP drop-in battles


    The NTW3 v8.9.1 Campaign patch allows players to setup DROP-IN BATTLE
    ....play opponents on-line when the opposing armies are evenly matched....


    When attacking or defending the pre-battle screen will display the opposing armies, their relative strength vs each other and the availability to do a drop-in battle online vs a human opponent instead of the AI. The campaign player may have the option to initiate a drop-in battle with another player and the option to invite friends only. The hosting campaign player should do a save_game and select the drop-in battle.




    Suggestions for online campaign battles:

    1.) Both player MUST HAVE the same NTW3 versions of the mod.

    2.) Setup an opponent ahead of time to reduce the search time, the campaign game will also search online for an opponent from the drop-in battle list.

    3.) Both players should use medium size armies and sync their graphic settings to medium (or low depending on their internet connection and cpu's) to facilitate the online the battle.

    4.) The Campaign host will have to run the campaign map in the background while he's fighting the online battle, this will put a load on most cpu's until the battle is finished and the results displayed.

    5.) The results of the battle will be displayed and the Campaign player will then be returned to the campaign map with the out come displayed. Remember to SAVE GAME after online battles !





    When an opponent has accepted the invitation the campaign battle will start loading:


    In this campaign battle the Kingdom of Italy player has the advantage of a French AI army to help fight the online Russian opponent

    The Campaign player should arrange online battles ahead of time by doing a SAVE_GAME and then seek a worthy opponent.
    It would also help to have voice over communications setup to coordinate the online battle. Preferably thru Discord or Steam.
