    v09 Upgrade...see first post

    Reb – Excellent Mod, I’m going to get these into my game as soon as possible.

    My, only complaint is that I wish that you would not place the glowing border around the selected flag, for some reason that just annoys me.

    The only true logic is that, there is no true logic!

    It's default and is a useful cue that the unit is selected. While I don't like it much from a point of view that it breaks the immersion I can see how its useful to players.

    Forgive my ignorance but can we have some install instructions please? Does everything just get unzipped to the Mods folder?

    Saddletank is not ignorant....I AM...and not only ignorant but computer illiterate as well. I have downloaded V-9 and it is in my download folder. Next step...well, I rightly do not know! How about a quick 1-2-3-etc. to get installed and usable?

    Thanks for your consideration.

    I have downloaded the mod but not tried it yet. But if it is like other mods the steps are:

    Unzip the downloaded archive and put the result folder into the mods folder. Then, ingame, mark it with the little yellow square and that´s it!. Working and usable. If you hate it unmark the mod and voilá!

    The Mod system of this game is amazing and easy.


    The next step would be, depending the nature of the mod, change the mods in real time, this is, when the battle is running :evil:.

    Sure, it was just that RebBugler has several parts to this mod - toolbar, flags, etc and I wondered if they could be activated separately.

    It would be great if it could be done.

    But I was speaking about simpler mods for now... :) And depending the nature of changes I guess no every mod could be activated desactivated in that way.

  • Removing them from the main Bugles folder, then putting them in a new folder inside the Mods folder. Then you can activate/deactivate the aspects you want.

    Thanks Sir, that about does it. One additional thing, this is 7-Zipped so you need the 7Zip app, available free online.

    Thanks for helping out all you guys, the mod system is so easy I forget it still needs to be explained from time to time, cuz nubees keep on a commin' :)

    As far as separate mods within, I do separate the toolbar out sans Bugle Calls and some other differences, and call it the MP Toolbar...it's not ready yet, soon, announced in the MP section.

    Then, Now I understand the problem about installing the mod. Maybe 7zip is not too familiar as rar or zip and if the user does not have 7zip installed it appears as a unknown archive.

    I have it installed so I had not paid attention to the detail.

    Greetings.

    No, I'm not having any trouble with the file types or how to install mods, I was just asking about separating these out as I'm really interested in the toolbar and flags, but nothing else, no music, no sounds, etc. My set up is okay as regards these features, I just wanted to use the flags and toolbar from this mod.

    Easy fix to mute Bugle Calls and Marching Music...Try this:


    File Attachment:

    File Name: sfx.csv
    File Size:5 KB


    Mods/Bugles and Flags v09/Logistics/sfx.csv

    Replace, overwrite sfx.csv

    There's a mod, but I can't find it. It's just a matter of renaming the stocks and placing them in a mod. However, scoring won't count toward the Generals' Stars.

    Thought the division flags were unique enough, large and single, brigade officers having double flags. You want the Stainless for division level?

    He is the one on a horse right? He is probably swearing and chewing tobacco right? He might be near the supply wagon. He could be giving orders to a courier or Genl. Gordon? I don't know Bragg? I can hardly make out anything from that far away pic. Place it in the same context as 122nd Ohio's TC2M map and I could point him out! Don't ask me with that 1 mile away photo when I am as drunk as Benjamin F. Cheatham before a battle! Your TC2M map pic was right on top of the command staff...

  • I know what you mean! You are from the old game. Just open up the OOB with Garnier's editor, notepad, or excell and add a specific flag for Corps, Div, and Brigade commanders. If you cant do it PM me a list of OOB's you want that to be clarified on and I will do it for you tomorrow or the next day. If you send me 4 - 7 I can send em to you in a couple of days. Any more than that, you are on your own!

    That is the 2nd National Flag. I can do that for you, but what OOB's do you want that on. I am not going to do all of them for you. List out 4 to 7, afterthat, you should try your hand at modding the OOB's on your own. Its hard at first but rewarding! Patience and practice, trial and error. Just PM me or list them on this link.

    Thanks Texas, ya don't necessarily have to edit the OOBs, just the gfx.csv...replace the division level flag ID info with the new flag. The 2nd National, Stainless, is not historic for Gettysburg, but was issued soon after.

    Hood is the only division CO without that designated flag, cuz Hood was special...for us ArkyTexas folks.

    Corps level uses the same flag, it's scaled higher and bigger...
