I'm ok with us playing the Reb OOB again.

I just gotta install mods. How long you reckon that will take me?

Course I'm gonna be real rusty.

I'm not sure how long---shouldn't be too long.

If you want, you and I can do a test game before Sunday just to make sure it all works for you, and to maybe shake out some of the cobwebs.

Just let me know.

Sounds good. I forget, do you guys use Teamspeak, Ventrillo? Or that abomination known as SKYPE??

We use Skype to setup games etc..................won't take you long to get back into the swing of things.

I might be up for Sunday, we will be over 100 degrees this weekend so I am backing up my on call techs in case they get swamped.

If I am up for Sunday, I will create a 3 Corps, 2 div in each Corps for us to play around with. But that would be a yank battle. If Anthro is joining us, we need to do Yank until he is back in the swing of things, Reb Div might be a little big for him to handle right now. Least with yank, he will have 3 brigades and arty instead of 5-6 brigades and arty to deal with. Let us give him a couple weekend fights to get back in the saddle before we throw him to the wolves.

Besides, the scenario generator is pure evil with troop placements when using random start locations. Makes for the ultimate challenge when you have no clue on a map where the enemy might appear or find that your Corps of 2 divisions is all the way across the map from your buddies. That forces you to either, march to meet your friends or hunker down until your friends get close.

You need just 2 mods to hang with us:

Bugle and Flag mod XIII (note that XIV is listed but scroll down a little and will see XIII)

http://www.norbsoftdev.net/forum/modifi ... -flags-xii

Peninsular Campaign

But not sure if it is still hosted, but pm me your email and I can shoot the mod to you.

As 2ndAcr mentioned. We use Skype to set up and then durimng the battle we have still been using couriers for communication (or at times the in game IM).

Hancock was going to test using the the GCM format with Teamspeak and see how that goes.

For now, just follow 2ndAcr's instructions so that we get you into a few battles and get reacquainted with things.

Okay for some reason Firefox is refusing to let gmail load up. Also denies Youtube and several other sites.

But here is the page that has the Pen mod in it, 2nd link listed:
