So my purchases in the sale have really struck gold (excuse the pun).

After a couple of days of head scratching my way around the nuances of the UI variances (next turn button is top right in some games and top left on another  ::) )I have totally fallen in love with the redone titles.

Campaign Ozark featuring the exploits of Union General Nathan Lyon in the Missouri backwaters against the State Guardsmen of the Confederate Governor leading up to the battles of Corinth and Wilson's Creek where Lyon's arrogance finally caught up with him has been a total joy on lovely maps. What I didn't expect was the period music and the songs describing satirically or otherwise the actor's in the drama in their lyrics ! So cool.

France 40 meanwhile has proved a nice challenge as the French against Rommel's Panzers and we are standing at one win each to date  :)

The sale is still on....very dangerous for my wallet ....

Great job by WDS on the ACW maps in particular.

I completely agree devoncop....Ozark overtook Antietam and Gettysburg as my favorite Tiller ACW game.  It looks great, plays great, and even the larger battles are small in comparison to the other titles I mentioned.   I can only afford 1 more game before the sale ends.  Not sure what to pick....have never tried a Modern Campaign game but then Panzer Battles Normandy looks inviting.   :-\

I am in the same boat as you as I can only really afford one (or at a stretch 2  :)) more games in the sale. Antietam will be the first.

I am tempted to buy them approximately chronologically.....

Although I am enjoying France 40 , Campaign Normandy is just too much of a stackfest for me to cope with I think. ... :)

Couldn't resist... picked up Japan '45 and Market Garden '44.   Now I need to sit down and actually *play* them.

In the upcoming Scheldt 44 release there is apparently an even bigger Market Garden Campaign included .......so maybe you may need space for one more  :bd:

  I'm sticking to Renaissance for the moment.  Nieuport (1600) is the latest battle in that game and a nice Osprey campaign book just came out on that so maybe I can fix up their Nieuport Scenario.

Grabbed ACW Campaign Peninsula as time was running out.  A lot of small to mid-sized battles to play out.

I am proud of myself. 

I bought three titles when the sale first started. 

Then I almost bought a bunch more as the sale dragged on. There were many evenings during the sale when I filled my shopping cart...but never hit buy.

The little gamer in my head would say; "What if one morning you wake up with an insane desire to fight Borodino or Champion Hill? Buying Napoleon's Russia Campaign and the Civil War Vicksburg Campaign would surely solve this dilemma." Then that downer of accountant in my head (or sometimes my wife) would say; "But you already have more games than you can play in your lifetime." 

This time the accountant prevailed, and fortunately I managed to maintain fire discipline and the sale passed with my wallet mostly unharmed.

But John Tiller will have other chances to take my money and I know it will be a struggle every time.

However, if JTS ever decides to upgrade their engine and UI to the 21st century...well...so much for the kid's inheritance.

I was doing so well.....

Then a You Tube series of a player re fighting Eylau in a PBEM over 80 turns was uploaded..... :hide:

On the last hour of the last day of the sale.....Campaign Eylau and for no other reason than I am really enjoying Campaign Ozark from the ACW Campaign Antietam ended up on my hard drive....

Thank you You Tube  :knuppel2:

As for a new engine and upgraded graphics......cold sweat time.. :)

I ended up adding Tunisia '43 to my other purchases.   ;D   Couldn't resist a more wide open campaign.

Graphics updates were released for various Napoleonic titles earlier this week.

Quote
We continue to roll out updates for the Napoleonic Battles series. This is a major update implementing a 2D & 3D* Graphics overhaul and many new engine enhancements. This process is bringing all the games in the series up to the same level. In this round the following games are 1814, Bautzen, Eckmuhl, Jena, Wagram and the Russian Campaign.
