    Are all players running the same mods?

    Hi Saddletank

    No there was no one else. I was trying out solo to see if the unitglobal problem had gone, which it seems it has and this is what was displayed in turn.

    Ah, I see.

    I am not 100% but it may be that your OOB is calling for a sprite named "GWashington" and that sprite is not listed in your UnitGlobal file.

    Hi Saddletank

    Gwashington is listed as a General sprite and works fine in Sandbox.Im not familar with the terms: index 0 and state 1. I have actually come across it before but haven't yet worked out what it is and why it appears in a multiplayer situation. Thanks for you input, hopefully someone will have experienced it before.

    Is the spelling of GWashington exactly the same in the OOB and UnitGlobal? One of them may have a space after it. That would be enough to cause the problem.

    Hi Saddletank

    GWashington is only found in the name column and I think the error is referring to his class type which is as the commander of the American army. I checked out any references across the unitglobal csv but there didn't seem to be anything that I could pin down as the cause.

    Hm. I'd have to look at your files to help further. Happy to do so if you can post them up somewhere and give me a link.

    Hi Saddletank

    Do you mean the log file? Or exactly which ones. Did you download the American War of Independence mod because that is the mod that I am trying to get to work on MP in preparation for the Seven Years War which I will be finishing soon? If you did then everything is in there.The log file itself just loads the preliminary files then stops at the:
    Unit global sprite requested not found - GWashington, index:0 state:1. This is what makes it hard to figure out the problem

    Thanks for your input

    It was the mod files - the OOB and the UnitGlobal. I have it downloaded. Was the OOB "OOB_SB_NAP_Brandywine_amended"?

    Hi Saddletank

    No. I wasn't sure what, if any, the changes would have to be. This is what I was hoping to find out via this post.

    On a second matter I read your post about revolutionary war sprites, Austerlitz and 1806 sprites. I have been work on modifying sprites that might be suitable. I have four infantry sprites of 1806 Prussians and sprites that would suit the French for 1806. I have worked on some revolutionary french as well. The are in old format so need packing.Let me know if you are intersted.

    Sorry, my post was not clear. I have the mod but I wanted to know which OOB file you are getting the error with.

    Those sprites sound great. Would you be able to post some pics in a thread in the WL modding forum so I can see them please?

    Hi Saddletank

    The OOB was Brandywine and I just loaded it as a solo sandbox game.

    The other sprites are not actually in game as such but I could send some in sprite sheet format. Probably by Dropbox if you send me details
