Napoleonic Battles Documentation

Post by rahamy »

Thread to post feedback on the documentation that comes with the games. Critiques or request for clarification are fine. Not all requests will be able to be met likely, but all will be reviewed.

If you have feedback on a specific section please post it in the following format:

Document (ex. User Manual)
Section (ex. 4.2.3)
Details


We'll review this section over time and continue the refinement process for future updates.

Plain Ian has posted a suggestion for fleshing out the wording of the threat disorder rules here: viewtopic.php?p=4547#p4547

Document: User Manual 4.05?
Section: 3. Dialogs
Details: I can't seem to see any discussion or clarification of the Auto DF Dialog? See below. Missing?

I can see that the default range setting on game start is Med range for artillery and Max (2 hexes?) for infantry. My understanding is that if Max is set for infantry then they will roll to see if they fire if an enemy unit moves/changes formation? within 2 hexes AND if it moves to 1 hex?

In my current game I'm not getting any Defensive fire by my non skirmisher units when enemy units move adjacent or assault? So the settings seem to be exclusive and not inclusive?

Send a game file into HelpDesk@wargameds.com to support the no defensive fire you are seeing. Define which game and version too please.

I think I know what the problem is. Me.

I think its because I have mixed hexes with Line and Skirmishers? When the skirmishers get pushed back they go to the top so are in front and the Line can't fire....but the skirmishers do?

One bit of feedback: The scenarios which come with the game are quite a morass, which no doubt is a reflection of enormous dedication in designing and modifying what's available over several versions of NRC, but as far I can tell there is no list or comprehensive description?

For instance, what is the difference between 012_Gorodetchna and 014_Gorodetchna? Examining them side by side, I can't see one.

Skirmishers on top do not prevent line behind them to fire.
