  • WOW !!!! ...

    and...does anyone know if other Mods would work with this one as well? (like B&F, Textured MiniMaps, GCM roadfixes, any of the other toolbars, etc...or...would any of them even be needed?)

  • Amazing work - looks lovely.

    John - I doubt it. One of the things I like about the complete remake mods is you leave you other things behind with the ACW period and step into something fresh and unknown. It adds to the different period feel.

  • Hi all

    Thanks for your comments. Appreciate that you like it so far.As I have said in previous posts this is just a start andstill a work in progress. Still it can give some insight as to how far the AWI can be taken. There are some limitations at present but if it proves popular enough then it would be possible to produce the AWI in all its splendour with favorite regiments represented. Remember also that the regiments were usually quite small so it would be possible to play it in a 1 to 1 setting giving it a better appearance. Still have work to do especially with artillery but will update with any new material.

  • remus,
    Those shots look great! I wrote some OOBs for the TC2M AWI mod and I am following this mod with great interest.

  • Hi Tacloban

    Yes I remember them and I played them quite a bit back then too. I am pretty sure I have them in the dark recesses of my computer but would still be in the TC2M format. I grabbed a copy of the one you posted of Brandywine and will use that as the basis for the next OOB. Once I get this one up and running then I will have a better understanding of working with some of the new formats and can focus more time on sprite conversions

  • I just looked through that last batch of pics again and noticed you have the Hessian units carrying British flags. Have you plans to make some Hessian flags for them?

  • Hi Saddletank


    Sorry I haven't been active of late and missed your post. I am having some connection issues with only a limited amount of data download available. I have moved into rental accommodation and will here for at least 6 mths. I have to work from a wireless hotspot which is expensive and so I have to ration my use between emails and games etc. to answer you question I will adjust the flags before downloading to SOW but this will be delayed for a while

  • Is there anywhere that this can be downloaded? I've been having a AWI itch and tried to get R&R for TC2M working, but apparently all the download links for the hires version are broken and it can't be downloaded anywhere. This though, is looking much better.

    Yes that right it won't work with SOW only TC2M but I'm sure that that is only a matter of time before the above mod is released :)

    Thanks for the link. I found that one the other day, it downloads just fine but it tells me that there is "Invalid data" when I try to install it. I'm guessing the file is corrupt. So it looks like the final download for the Hires version of R&R is gone. I'm guessing I'll be sticking with the lowres one, which downloads and installs just fine.

    A shame really. I even spent an hour or so randomly googling hoping to run into a download somewhere randomly, no joy. Thanks for you help all the same.

  • Hi,

    I still have a 'Version' of Rebels and Redcoats on my drive.

    It will play without the need for the original CD in the drive but does not have the scenarios. There were only a couple of very simple ones, Cowpens and Long Island if I recall.

    All the Revolutionary OOB's are there though and it will still play "Open Play" with the correct sound and music. All the original TC2M ACW OOB's and battlefields are there as well, giving plenty of fighting venues.

    It might be possible to get you a copy if it will help. Logistics could be a problem as I live in Darkest Africa. Takes a month to get an air mail to London !! Alternately I might be able to e-mail it in sections for reassembly.

    Let me know if you are interested.

  • Done a bit more investigation on this. The files are about 3.7 GB so e-Mailing them would not be practical.

    I am just experimenting with burning them to a DVD.

    All of the OOB's are there for TC2M, Northern Rebellion, Horse and Musket and Rebels and Redcoats. Whilst the Rebels and Redcoats OOB's seem to work fine, which is what you want, some from the other games will not and crash out. I guess some of the individual unit sprites have gone corrupt.

    You would just have to work through them one by one and check. Suck it and see !

  • I'm just doing a final check that what I have loaded is the High Definition version. I'm sure it would be ...I never compromised on less than the best ....but it is several years ago since I last examined the files.

    Can somebody advise me of the convention at the time. Looking at a sprite in the GRAPHICS/UNITS folder, should it have HD in the sprite name or something similar ?

  • Hi NHall,


    Oh dear, this gets more and more complicated.

    I downloaded again the Low Definition Rebels and Redcoats and checked the quality of the sprites with those on my version. No difference ! So my installation must also be Low Definition. Damn it.

    However, the version downloaded from Mediafire was a very early Beta with only one OOB. Mine is a later version with a lot more Revolutionary OOB's. I also have a lot of the extra TC2M mod battlefields up which makes Open Play more varied.

    I have copied my game to DVD. It won't play direct from the DVD but will play fine when transferred to a hard drive. If you want this DVD, just send me a PM (Private Message)with your postal address or alternatively e-mail me on jeffers at gowzim dot com

  • hey guys, if you wouldn't mind could you start a new post regarding the TC2M files/issues, and not post "TC2M related" items here? somehow my orig. post got hijacked!! :) thanks...

    (this post was for "SOW related" Amer Rev War posts, and since I subscribe i'm getting all these non-related emails when i'm only interested in the SOW related mods being worked on)

  • Hi, JohnVW

    Since any SOW mod covering the Revolutionary War would most likely be constructed adapting the old TC2M sprites as a base, I do not consider the matter as irrelevant and trivial. I can't see anyone at the moment creating from scratch the large number of sprites that would be needed, particularly since the SOWGB engine is likely soon to be overtaken by the improved Waterloo engine and the obvious place to work would now be there, not here.

    I'm afraid you must concede that the answer to the question posed in your "subject" is NO.

    Please be assured this response is not sour grapes for us having lost the war !!

  • I was not implying that any of the posts were "trivial", just not related to the orig SOW Amer Rev post...the Mod being worked on currently is a SOW Mod, and not for TC2M...that's all...

    and, I might suggest you could use a 16GB flash drive (about $10 US) to mail-off your files, instead of trying to put them on a DVD(s)...and then they could be installed from the flash drive on the other end...

  • Hi everyone

    Sorry to have kept you in the dark for so long but I have been seriously ill and spent three months in hospital. I have been out now for about six weeks and am still on the road to recovery. Needless to sayI have had my enthusiasm curbed a little to want to do modding as it became bottom of my list of things to do. I had probably about 90 per cent completed and had been playing sandbox quite successfully but it would not play multiplayer. this might be because the sprites are in the old format.I am now in a better place and have started to get back to AWI and am applying myself to learning to pack the sprites. I have had to retire from work so should have a lot more time to apply myself to the task at hand and get the mod out as soon as I can.
    Thank you for your patience
