Well, we got half of John's wish list done,
Prairie Grove released on it's 150th Battle Anniversary.
The other half coming soon, John's beautiful map of Pea Ridge. I got a little rushed getting Prairie Grove together by today, hopefully I can do it better justice with a few more scenarios added, maybe even some HD flags to spice up this wonderful map. To the best of our knowledge, Prairie Grove was John's last completed map, I was proud to do my part with this design effort...I felt Texas John was watching my every move in this building process.

Hi,
Anybody got this to work?
I installed it to Chancellorsville (Matrix edition), activated as a mod but it doesn't load. Get an error box saying can't load package. Got to ctrl alt del to end.
I have SOWGB (Matrix) with PC and Antietam installed as well but in its own folder.
I had the Norbsoft editions initially but I ended up buying hard copies through Matrix and installed them so I could have CV as a stand alone.
Is it me
Got to be something simple.

I know this kind of thing gets confusing, and I really wish it were more simple.. But it is what it is.

Since you have purchased Scourge of War Chancellorsville, you should be able to re-install it again into Gettysburg, which would then make it a map pack with Gettsyburg, and Prairie Grove would work properly. This also shouldn't affect your Chancellorsville stand-alone.

By the way, you can still hit enter when you get that error. The map will load, but it will be missing some buildings.

LP,

Not fun on the download. Getting "invalid data" message when I try to install. Have DL'd it twice and tried to install twice. No joy. Thoughts?

Re: Prairie Grove - Released 1 year, 8 months ago #10

I'm not sure gents. I downloaded to test earlier and it was fine. Maybe something is up with the server. I would keep trying..

I've downloaded it OK and have played 30 minutes or so of the SP scenario. My initial impressions are that it is the best looking map yet. Thank you NSD. A great tribute to its sadly missed author.

Yes, great looking map, just got done playing it and was mesmerized by the scenery. Feels like being in a painting at the HITS level.

Got it to install the third time. I think it was Norton playing up as usual.

Just had a quick look, and I agree, the map is exceptionally good.

Instead of an install, would it be easier for a zipped copy of this mod just be made available for download? So, you just download, unzip, and copy into the mods folder. Or, make both procedures available?

I'm one happy Arkansas boy today! John, if you're able to check up on us every once in a while, and I believe you can, thank you so much! This is a beautiful map.

As far as whether it's an installer or a zip, both are fine. I'm used to installing zips, but I know some people aren't familiar with doing that, so for them, an installer works best.

Can understand requirement for SOW Gettysburg in order to download Prairie Grove, but don't know why Chancellorsville and Antietam are necessary. Just curious.

Great looking map screenshots!

A friend and I visited the Prairie Grove battlefield this past Spring, along with Pea Ridge and Wilson Creek. Nice trip. Here's a little known fact about Wilson Creek: the battlefield park hdqrs. has the largest library of any Civil War battlefield in the country. Great for research.

Great looking map screenshots!

Each new map comes with a new set up houses, buildings, etc, these items are a part of a paid-for-download, so they can't be given away for free.

If anyone doesn't have the additional maps - the free-maps will still work, you will just not be able to see those items.

Just had my first ventures into Prairie Grove.

A superb map and great images. A joy to fight on. Fine mix of terrain and a welcome change from all those damned unrelenting TREES of late.

Greatly looking forward to Pea Ridge ..... that was a rewarding location in TC2M I seem to remember.

Just gets better and better.

This is really great to me. For one, because I had long been looking forward to it and Reb's work, too. But secondly, because I will never load this map without thinking especially of John.

Re: Prairie Grove - Released 1 year, 8 months ago #22

Just noticed I have no buildings on the Prairie Grove display. Despite having Antietam, Chancellorsville etc installed and running.

Went back to run Antietam and discovered that I now have no buildings there either. I know there were buildings there previously. Mumma farm is burning well ....... without the farm.

I haven't got time to look into this right now but any ideas would be welcome. I will look at the options to see if I have accidentally reduced the graphics settings and also the actual graphics files for Antitam.

Re: Prairie Grove - Released 1 year, 8 months ago #23

Sorry Panic over

I see that I had somehow reduced the Map Objects setting from 'Best' to 'High'. Restoring 'Best' restored the buildings.

I must admit I had not realised that a 'high' setting zapped all of the buildings. Seems a bit extreme.

This really belongs in a different thread, but you will need to find someone that also just has the demo, or someone that will be kind enough to play a demo MP game with you. We are working on a way to handle your situation better, but for now that's the only way to do it.

Thanks for the kind words. Was concerned about your absence, you disappeared about the same time as John, had a crazy feeling that John was using an alias...as you. Welcome back, hope life wasn't too harsh on ya...looking forward to those promised OOBs.

Always good to hear from you, luv your interpretations of our presentations. Yeah, Pea Ridge won't disappoint, it may prove to be John's most magnificent work...for me, it is. His recreation of the Ozark Plateau is uncanny, I lived and adventured in this magical land as a youth...Mountain Home and Berryville Arkansas.

However, you must tolerate some thick forests.
