New Scenario M4: Bill Wiggins has designed a multi-board rendition of the battle of Shiloh (both days) produced by Don Hessong graphically.
Don Hessong has provided a major Multiboard Expansion System for Battle Cry. See the Resources section for the direct link. For an interesting discussion of this system, check the Battle Cry folder on Consimworld
The site has been slightly updated, cutting the original huge index page into five manageable chunks, and has been relocated thanks to the generosity of Jonathan Arnold! I can now continue to add new materials to the site.
Major New Resource!
Derek Hohls has created a new XML based tool for rapid and simple specification of scenario maps, which also permits you to generate the scenario map using PNG instead of GIF or JPG. By using XML to describe the scenario contents, you will be able to rapidly design and test your scenarios because changes and new map generation are so quick. To get an idea of how useful this tool is, please download HexBattle ReadMe (in PDF), which describes the package and provides instructions and examples. If you like what you see, then also download the software package HexBattle Package (ZIP).
