  • Hi All

    I have just updated the American War of Independence as from today the 11/12/2018. I have made some improvements and fixed some bugs that were missed before. This download includes the Brandywine OOB and also the Long Island OOB as well. If you already have downloaded the AWI and it doesn't have the Long Island OOB then you have the older version which has some bugs.If I have missed anything let me know and I will endeavour to rectify any issues.

    www.mediafire.com/file/t73codt3whyc8m7/OOB_SB_NAP_Battle_of_Long_Island.csv/file

    The first link only needs to be downloaded if this is your first time.

    The second link is for those who have downloaded and might be having a problem with the Long Island OOB. Delete the current OOB and replace with the new updated one

    The American War of Independence mod should be posted on the forums within the next couple of days. Just final checks and bugs to be removed I will post the link once final checks have been made. In the meantime some screenshots of games that have been played while testing.It is for use with Gettysburg.

  • Looking good. Will be nice to try out... but those default Gettysburg vegetation textures are looking pretty dated. You should use Jollys/GCM trees mod.

  • I have got Part 1 okay but Part 2 (British units) appears to have a broken link:

    "Not Found

    The requested URL /awipart2britishunits was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

  • Hi all
    Sorry about the hitch. I get out of hospital tomorrow or next day at the latest. Only have my iPhone with me so will get on top of it within the next few days. Anyone suggest a better file downloads site I could use.

    I've tried downloading these files 3 or 4 times and I'm getting 0 bytes files every time. Mediafire is just insanely slow as well :(

    Downloaded from the new link, switched off all other mods but still can not get the mod to work (always crashes when I press space bar to begin battle). Is there a specific map that the mod runs on? or should it be OK on any map?

  • all the links included below are "dead":
    "New downloads links have been put up below

    www.mediafire.com/?iwbx54bl5i5xjow,2a8ccucaqtyot5e,or0npd0k923y38q

    A link to the zip file necesssary to extract the folders

    www.mediafire.com/?iwbx54bl5i5xjow,2a8ccucaqtyot5e,or0npd0k923y38q"


    i then went here: "www.mediafire.com/download/l4hrytk5aokr63b/American_War_of_Independence.zip"

    ok, i got the download "ok"...and put the one folder in my MODs game folder, and turned it on"...but it does not show up anywhere when trying to make game selections? i'm obv. missing a "step" somewhere, any ideas?

    (and, assuming i can get my download to run...is there any reason i couldn't mail a flash-drive with these files to my brother, have him install in his SOW-GB and then play online via the lobby?)

  • Just a couple of suggestions if you got to the press spacebar stage. Try right clicking on gettysburg.exe file and running as "trouble shoot compatability". Check the logfile to see what the mistakes are if it doesn't start and let me know what it says.

    I am at the moment downloading the file onto my computer to see what is wrong will report back as soon as I can.

  • Just to say that for me the download worked fine, and the mod runs ok. Other thoughts:

    Bodkin - perhaps you can give Remus a copy of your SOWGB log file? It's in the work folder.

    JohnVW - have you got more than one copy of GB? Have done that that myself, and ended up installing mods to the wrong one. Hope that's not a case of grandmother sucking eggs :blush:

    Remus - in the commander select screen, all of the brigades are listed as cavalry for some armies. I think that *may* be because you don't always include corps commanders in the OOBs, so the chain of command skips from army to division.

    Hope that helps. It looks to be a very nice piece of work.

  • Hi all

    Just went through the download links unto my computer.After clicking the link cleared the captcha hurdle and started the download. Once downloaded I extracted to documents folder. This completed successfully so I substituted my existing copy with the downloaded version. I right clicked the gettysburg.exe to test the compatibility mode. This worked successfully. I should mention that my OS is windows 8 which may or may not be an issue with others compatibility.

    John VW
    At the moment there is only single player available. I just wanted to get the game up and running with the basic troop types available and then work at refining the mod with more OOBs and troop types. Shouldn't take long and if some one can do it in the meantime feel free to do so.

    Bodkin

    No specific map needed just make sure that Brandywine or the other AWI OOB is selected

    HI Saddletank

    Not sure what to tell you. I did do the download check onto my computer with you specifically in mind.
    Will wait to see if more feedback can help the situation

  • Thanks for all your suggestions guys. Working OK now, running the compatibility trouble shooter seems to have done the trick......

    Thanks for the work put into this mod.

  • They should do. I have them working on all the maps..... The Long Island oob does not always work, but the other two seem to be ok.
    Also working with other graphic and sound mods.

  • Hi Bodkin and VW and every one else

    The Long Island OOB will not yet work it was a work in progress which i forgot to delete. However I have it now complete and will upload it shortly.

    John VW
    Does the game crash or just not show up on opening. In the past I found that there might be one too many folders in place.Check the AWI mod folder and compare it with the organization of another mod folder and see if that is different

  • As the d/l works I think it must be something with how Firefox works or a browser setting I have. I do not get a captcha option, the link takes me direct to a file download dialogue, which I accept and it is an empty file.

    I will try to grab the mod via a friend who I know has successfully downloaded it. I really would like to try it out, it looks great.

    Thanks Remus for all your hard work. The mid-18th century is my favourite era of western warfare.

  • Just a thank you to remus for producing this mod, one of my favourite periods. Been playing this week and had a couple of good games. One or two niggly little issues I had to change (ie; changed 42nd from a regular infantry regiment to a highland regiment (Black Watch)). But nothing that detracted from the game as a whole. I have messed around a little and created a couple of OOB's - Camden and Guilford Courthouse.
    All in a great mod. Well done....
