I've come to this community fairly late in the day, having obtained the original C&C-N a few months ago and having just purchased the first (Spanish) extension to C&C-N. I am trying to update my Vassal v 1.42 module for the original C&C-N to accomodate the extension but can not fathom how to do this.
On this site home page there appear to be myriad download opportunities for "Epic" and "CCNapoleonics" etc. with instructions to put the former into a "module directory called "CCNapoleonics_EXT".
Where will I find this directory and how do I use the downloads and what exactly do they represent?
After first starting my module, its listed in the Vassal main window.
Click then on the module name in the vassal mainwindow (with right mouse click)
choose then the "Add extension" menu option and click to the downloaded
epic extension. Its installed then automatic.
After a vassal restart, the extension module and scenarios should be available then.
I did a little helpfile, Alessandro will upload it immediately
Thank you - I will do as you suggest and download the versions you provide, but the main reason for my posting was to learn if there is an official (or unofficial) Vassal module I could download to update the original version 1.42 so I can play the Spanish army expansion to the boardgame.
We fought on this map, three against three. It was a very difficult fight! In fairness, the day should have been French. The English left flank was pressed against the baseline and fought back with the last of its strength. The center was divided into separate defense islands. The 95th regiment was defeated at the beginning of the battle, its fate was shared by the guards. Only the light brigade, coming out of the reserve, dealt a decisive blow. But the Spaniards, thanks to Guerilla, absolutely dominated on their flank. Having lost the battery, the Spaniards destroyed the light cavalry and horse artillery of the French, covered the French from the flank and crashed into the mass of French troops with wedges. The adrenaline victory of the allies - 13: 12.
French won 13-5, powering home from 4-4 on an impressive display of dice rolling.
An aspect of this scenario design we didn't like was how few Leaders were on the map. We added British Campbell and MacKenzie, and moved Sherbrooke to the left.
French added Milhaud with the French cavalry on the French left.
Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.
