Wait what, this used to be a mod for Warband!

Amazingly yes just like Red Orchestra, Day Of Defeat and Counter Strike the modders have been bought out and set up a separate studio. For those who have played it in the past basically the developers and close players of the community to them have secretly been developing, testing and adding content to the former mod now DLC for a year and a half and the results are amazing. Gone is the lovely broken melee combat, terrible memory leak issues and the terrible terrible maps.

I am not convinced, you need to sell this to me since I have played this before and I hated it!

Musicians can move when playing instruments and officers buff, there is a unique to the era set of customizable options for your soldier as well as an improved and expanded artillery system. There is also the Empire of Austria as the newest army and the ability to brace bayonets against cavalry charges when they attack. And decent voice acting. They've even tweaked the bots AI and added them into a game mode when you can command big groups of them. Try and imagine these battles where one person out of 250 has 5 bots under their command. Cannons even have several ammunition types and a reticule for aiming.

Essentially this looks and feels like a proper gaming product and not a mod thrown together now.

It sounds good....but I hate playing these new games alone...

Well lucky for you since October 2011 a small goon community has flourished playing this with other people. We roll in force in the public events using the Camping The Stairs Mumble.

Regiments? Line battles? what the gently caress?

Basically instead of clans the game has players banding up into official sounding and fictional regiments including us (SAdraGoons get it?) for semi organized and organized play. The latter is extremely useful as it turns the line battles where 200 players deck it out making it all look like a scene from a movie or one of the newer Total War games.

If you want to roll with us speaking in the Mumble isn't enforced but you need it to listen to our officer to make us vaguely efficient at this.

Okay, I caved and bought and now downloading...now what?

First off start reading all the stuff below while it downloads, then play the single player tutorial as soon as you can. When you are done with that quickly pull up our Google Spreadsheet with the American or EU events and pick one to join in on the fun.

I also heavily suggest downloading and using both the officer hat replacement mod and the modified reticule mod so you can hit things with your dumb guns.

You can pick up both easily from our OFFICIAL DROPBOX. Just extract and yes to all in your Warband folder (reticule) and Napoleonic Wars folder in modules for the hat mod. These two make playing this DLC 100% easier GET THEM.

To be honest, the casual scene for this DLC is pretty quiet and chaotic. If it is your thing go ahead and roll on a public server to get a feel of things. We goons mostly play for the events.

I'm a veteran from the previous year or just looking for a more interesting visual experience with the DLC

Well lucky you, a good modder has made a huge client side compilation mod from the best the NW community has to offer:

quote:


The ExParrot Mount And Blade Napoleonic Wars Enhancement Mod Version 5!

Okay I will cut straight to the chase, for some of us playing the DLC over a year on now visually and sound wise some things have gotten a little bland and started to run together. Thankfully, unlike the Total Conversion side of things the Client Side modding scene of the DLC is quite active and filled with eager people getting their collective feet wet learning to mod the horrors of the Warband engine. One of those goons is ExParrot who has done a little kit bashing himself with the games files and also brought with permission some of the best client side modifications of NW all in a single mod. Best thing of all ExParrot is constantly tweaking and adding new content with constant releases.

So what exactly is in this mod? quite a lot of things I'll quickly list them below:

Pants music mod friendly! you will still listen to the hand picked military classics of the 19th centuries greatest composers!
Five new idle animations for regular line that cycle.
New idle animations for Officers and NCO.
New animations for Cavalry.
Surrender replaced with Salute animation from N&S.
My own mod that replaces the tarted up hard to find shako hats for Officers of the Light, Skirmishers and Light Cavalry with bicorner hats.
A more realistic and louder set of sounds for musket and artillery fire as well as firearm impacts and loading.
Nicer looking smoke effects.
Tweaked UI.
New spyglass texture.
Blood spray when hit/stabbed!
Redone much nicer looking skyboxes.
Additional taunts taken from Napoleon Total War.
New menu and loading screens as well as some new menu music.
Total War style loading screen quotes.
Redone Artillery barrel and carriages.
Replacement of most units in each army with more unique looking Napoleonic era soldiers, including Officer, Ensign and NCO models.

Curious to actually SEE some of this new stuff in action? well I've taken a load of screenshots below and put them in some IMGUR gallery! FEAST YOUR EYES GOOD SIR:

New Uniforms of all the factions plus the new animations!

Download This Mod Here!

ExParrot posted:

Final update for my mod is here. There aren't too many visual changes; it fixes a bunch of bugs, changes the way the resources are laid out, adds some units that are easy to customize, optional pretty female faces, varied running/idle animations, and that's just about it...

Customizable units include:
- British Highlanders
- British Light Infantry
- British Rifles
- French 84e
- French Light Infantry

To enable a new unit and disable the old one:
1) Navigate to your Napoleonic Wars module folder, and open your module.ini file
2) Scroll down to the "Customizable Files" section (tip: it's called that, so use the find option)
3) Remove the # from the uniform you want, and add it infront of the uniform it replaces
4) Save

There are also troop names for the customizable units, just unpack the troop file that corresponds to the one you want and replace the old troops file with it.
If you want some good old Mount and Musket era taunts, unpack the sounds into your sounds file and replace.


It's better to install this version over a clean copy of NW, but you don't have to.

*JUST MAKE SURE THE INSTALL PATH IS CORRECT IN THE INSTALLER!*

If you want to un-install the mod, DO NOT use the un-install button that the mod creates. It will break your game. Delete your NW module folder and let Steam re-download it.


I bought my Warband from a download service that isn't STEAM/in CD form! can I still get this? how!?

I suggest first buying a copy of NW straight from the TaleWorlds website as mixing and matching providers never ends wells.

First off, go to the TaleWorlds website and register a forum account, once there go to the control panel and look for the profile settings options then look for the option to add the Game Ownership badges to your profile. This takes you to a page which asks for your CD key for Warband and the Expansion. Simply add them and once they've confirmed them you will be given the option to download the installer for Warband/NW straight from their website for free.

Can I play this with a 360 controller?

Amazingly, you can. And it apparently it all rather seamless too.

I own a Mac but is it possible to play this?

Watch this YouTube video guide here if you know a little about your computer to get the game up and running then .

Alright you convinced me, I'm in is there anything I really need to know

Yes there is. If you want to read about the silly goon fluff from the previous year of play, about Napoleonic History or a short guide on factions/equipment and stats of the weapons I have these posts compacted from the previous thread all in stored in this handy little blog.

It also tells you how to behave in line battles and how to lead them, lists the bigger client side and multiplayer mods we use and a bunch of other handy stuff like Technical Support with this DLC. Please take the time to read it.

Je suis le cul bite!

Hello fellow gamer goon will you like a cup of tea (the only answer is yes goddammit and if you are reading this bit after the basic store stuff this means you are interested in fighting some sweet Napoleonic Wars with us online. If you like brightly colored uniforms with hats as tall as your head, facial hair and pipes and being horribly ripped apart by canister shot or run down by rich men on horses with silly hats with goons this is the game for you. It'll just be like that Iron Maiden song!

If you picked up Warband in the last few months in some STEAM Sales this DLC was part of the package. If you want to play it and have fun do give us a go as the alternative is dealing with a crazy drama obsessed weird public community.

This is the 3rd goddamn thread now. Crazy I know right? still, we need new blood and Warband is getting old. The old thread was nice but getting a little bloated so I compacted most of that silly stuff onto the new SAdraGoons Blog here. Feel free to read it if you want. It contains vast gaming secrets and trivia! The Franco Prussian War mod for this is about to be released and it is looking good and along with several other reasons has spurred me onto making a new thread for us.

The older one is here and will be soon vanishing into the archives if you wish to read it.

OUR STEAM GROUP IS NOW OPEN AND QUITE ACTIVE JOIN IT TO GET IN ON THE LINE BATTLE FUN!

WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED FOR EU TIME ZONE PLAYERS TO BOLSTER OUR LINES PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO THANK YOU!


LINE BATTLES: We all pile together into the Mumble channel and work together under the orders of a goon officer who directs us to fight in formation against other pubbies in formations in the line battle events.

Our little regimental/clan tag is: SAdraGoons_(username here) and the banner of our regiment is as follows:



Yes, it is a red cock. Got a problem with it now?

I suggest joining us in our Mumble channel Camping The Stairs for the 19th century big hatted fun!

We are in desperate need for chill goons willing to lead us into battle and organize the group on a larger scale. You must be a chill goon and be patient enough to deal with all sorts of internet challenges. Talk with SeanBeansShako (STEAM) if your interest in these roles.

ATTENTION: When joining our STEAM group be aware that at the start of the week I will be putting the weeks events up all at once. Do not be watching porn or playing an unstable game so the alt tab rage of STEAM community will not kill you.

We're also desperate for a goon or two willing to record our line battles for history!



Mumble details!

We're in Camping The Stairs click me here to learn how to join!

Please don't be a utter cock in this Mumble channel too, just be chill alright?

THE GOLDEN RULE, READ THIS:

This community has one rule and one rule only. Be a chill dude.


Yeah well whatever man thats like your opinion...

Nobody cares about politics, religion, internet cliques or being too try hard or too casual. We're all fun having spergers who love fun. If somebody irritates you just put up with it. If they really annoy you I might suggest taking a break or moving on. We're chill dudes elite yo. Break this rule and rest assured I will come down hard on you with the holy rage of ancient mythological god throwing bans and silences like nobodies business. Thankfully I've not had to do that yet. If you gently caress up once I'm willing to move the heavens to save your rear end though. Now thanks for reading and go have fun.



State Of The Group: 12/8/2014 (Over One Year After Release):

EU events for the time being have been put on hold due to lack of interest. We've still got decent numbers for American time zoned events, but lacking goon leadership still.

WE ARE IN SERIOUS NEED OF THOSE INTERESTED IN LEADING! WE WON'T MAKE FUN OF YOU AND ACTUALLY LISTEN! WE DON'T CARE IF YOU LEAD US TO OUR DEATH! GIVE IT A TRY!


Napoleonic Wars draGoon media!

Several noble draGoons have volunteered their internet connections and HD space to provided moving pictures from the front lines of glorious battle. None of these images have been altered and reveal the ugly face of Napoleonic era war. All line battles are located in this handy YouTube channel.

**** LINE BATTLE STUFF RIGHT HERE GENTLE GOONS ****



So how do I join up with these things?

Don't worry, we've done all the hard stuff. All you need to do is keep an eye on the events and announcements in the group. Getting Mumble is a must for the line stuff at least so grab it even if you don't own a microphone. Then soon you'll be part of this professional elite unit of manly men.

DO NOT ENTER SEE NOBODY IN MUMBLE THEN LEAVE ASSUMING IT AIN'T HAPPENING AN HOUR BEFORE

The regulars will trickle in over time, If there is issues with the event I'll pop into the channel and either wait a few minutes to tell people or edit the Mumble channel details and mention whatever in this very thread. PUT THIS THREAD IN FAVORITES NOW SON.

In fact, here is a brief guide!

CHECK THIS GOOGLE SPREADSHEET WITH OUR ACTIVE LINE BATTLE EVENTS.
IF YOU HAVE A SLOWER/OLDER COMPUTER TURN DOWN YOUR GRAPHICS LEVEL AND SFX/MUSIC.
SHOW UP AND LURK IN MUMBLE CHANNEL 10-15 MINUTES BEFORE STARTING.
WAIT FOR GOON LIAISON TO RETURN TO MUMBLE CHANNEL WITH PASSWORD WITH THE EVENT SERVER NAME.
READ THE CHANNEL INFO FOR THE NEWLY ADDED SERVER AND NAME PASSWORD IN MINE OR ANOTHER GOONS MUMBLE CHANNEL USERNAME COMMENT BOX WITH THEIR (EXAMPLE HERE)
JOIN THE SERVER NOW, BUT GO TO SPECTATOR.
READ OR LISTEN TO THE MUMBLE TO LEARN WHAT ARMY YOU ARE.
JOIN THE STANDARD GOON REGIMENT OF SAID NATION AND FORM UP BEHIND OFFICER.

Line battles usually have a 5 minute grace time limit before they set up a map and go live which the basic stuff (marching and drill) is quickly covered. Then after the map change and brief reset the thing then goes into live for several rounds. Some line battles have gimmick rounds just for fun at the end worth staying for.

But why do we have to stay in a line?

Apart from the obvious fact that is it for organization and a general server rule for line infantry to squeaze up and play follow the leader there is a sensible in game engine related reason for it now.

Introduced in NW is the feature of ballistic randomization for your musket ball after it leaves the barrel of your gun. What this means is you can be standing almost in front of another line but a dice roll could make the shot either hit him in the legs or miss utterly and shoot the ground at his feet.

Just like in real life being bunched up together in a stationary line and getting your shots off quickly gives you the highest chance of all muskets cone of fire to at least find some targets. Being too far left or right in a line or just out of it lowers your chance of scoring some kind of lethal hit as firing together in a line could finish off a guy recently wounded by another shot. Staying together as a line makes engaging in melee and stops enemy cav from separating and cutting you and your fellow goon to bits. It also explains why dressing the line and firing in a single volley is important because every shot counts.

In short this is not good. You may get a kill or two but being line deaths are expected.


This is, as you will kill half the line if your quick enough and mop the rest up with your superiors numbers BAYONETS.

Skirmishers have an advantage by being able to move, use cover and crouch as well as having distance and Rifles to take on lines but if your a linesman speed and staying together is your best bets for survival.


Now your line battling goon!


We keep a screenshot gallery and hope in the future to have videos of out antics in these things to show off how drat fun actually are.

draGoons fighting pubbies screenshot album for Napoleonic Wars!

With a little bit of training and experience in these things you two can be part of our elite unit!

KEEP IT IN MUMBLE AND DON'T TOUCH THAT ALL CHAT KEY.


How does the whole class thing work with line battles?

There are limited amount of slots of course, 198 players slots (Two are reserved for an event admin each side) at the moment which will increase when they start increasing the numbers of 200 max to 250. Regiments can request to be certain things every event in the TeamSpeak channel where the event is organized and depending on their numbers, skill or if they have been hogging the horses since the last line battle they may or may not get it.

At the moment most line battles can field one regiment of cav, two of light or riflemen and two artillery cannons the rest of the numbers going into the line infantry pool. Sometimes numbers can mean the difference of getting line infantry or light though with request you can split up your regiment and field both light infantry and cavalry like we have done in the past. Some events allow Sappers to tag with line or light or have a small squad who are committed to artillery defense.

Line Battle Rules

Just a brief guide of line battle rules so you guys don't get kicked (seriously read up if you lose a slot chances are you will have to wait forever to get back in)

I AM SERIOUS ABOUT THIS ONE: DO NOT INJURE/TK YOUR OWN GOON COMRADES IN THESE LINE BATTLES.

Get in our Mumble channel.
Turn your music really down to almost off.
Shoot together in a line under your officers orders.
Engage in melee only when the enemy is about to melee your rear end.
No crouching.
No TKing (especially don't shoot the Generals allied or enemy) as their admins watching for this stuff).

Also, if we have been blessed with cavalry and our draGoon Officer loses his horse one of you noble goon fellows must give him your steed. We'll try and find a replacement for you as horses roam around the field all the time without riders while you try and trot to the artillery or a nearby line.



Bejabbers boys, I've got their flag thingy!



FLAGS! FLAAAAAAGS! I NEEDS ME SOME ENEMY FLAAAAAGS!

As well all know gentlegoons, the real resource of an army isn't raw recruits, gold or the support of a nation but a bountiful supply of pretty regimental and national flags.

This is a list dedicated to the moments of GLORY in line battles when we actually take a units flag. The goon who captured it will be mentioned along with the regiment if possible. Our own flags don't count guys.

draGoon Flag Collection Count: 10

1: 37th Line Infantry standard captured during line battle on the 20/5/2012 by Artillery Guard draGoon Albiol77.

2: Officer Phantom Zero slaughtered a whole Regiment of Reddit who took most of us down single handled in a laggy sunday line battle 27/5/2012.

3: Sapper Desu wields the 58thRU's standard after we shot them all down in a line outside a village. Our Officer Pants and Magura heroically ran in under Rifle fire to sneak this silky baby. This happened on the Tuesday NA Line Battle of the 29/5/2012.

4: Prussian draGoon McFenix proudly grabs the Eagle of the 3eVolt_Skrm after we decimated them ontop of a hill with a dragoon cav charge on the Sunday NA line battle (10/6/2012).

5: Imperial Guard Cav survivor Bhodi with the standard of the 5th_TFF taken from them after they attempted to charge our draGoon artillery position on the Historical line battle (11/6/2012).

6: Prussian Landwehr draGoom nickels holds alot an Imperial Eagle of the IIIe_18_ regiment after we broke them in volley and bayonet charge during the Sunday NA line battle (8/7/2012).

7: French Light Infantry draGoon Mahler holds alot the Prussian 5tesKDR dragoon standard after a bloody counter action during the Monday historical line battle (16/7/2012).

8: draGoon light infantry holding up the standard of the 2nd Coldstream liberated by the hands of light infantryman Alex (31/7/2012).

9: Russian Line Infantry draGoon Robert. E Leet holds a bloody standard taken from the hands of the Scottish Highlanders of the 54u after a tense bayonet charge during a scuffle in the desert (2/8/2012).

10: Count Mippi Grabs the Pennant from the 95KB's after draGoon Hussars prove themselves far from a match against them in a bloody American line battle (10/5/2013)

Been a feature since release, but as it has already been pointed out it is pretty limited in use. Any good cavalry player will angle away and not charge towards the pointy bit of metal and just try to give you 19th century cosmetic surgery with his sword instead.

Best use really is to have a few people do it and the rest stay in traditional melee.

It is Friday which means we got two events in both the American and European time zones. The American event starts at 9PM EST so please do join and hang in the Mumble around an hour before.

The EU line battle is at 7PM Brit time/8PM Central and I'd like goons to show up a little earlier so I can get a good idea of our numbers and all. And thanks for the compliments about the OP.

This is pretty sad because I for one can only participate in the EU events, but if the numbers have been dropping off heavily then I figure leaving them out -for a while at least- is in order. People are busy of course and can't take part in every single event, but if the total number of people playing is that low then it'll just get frustrating to guess how many will be absent.

However, with the new thread hopefully enticing more people into relaxed and enjoyable Napoleonic action movie sequences, maybe we should see how next week pans out and then take a break if the numbers don't change.

Tonight we have two events, the Sunday EU line battle which is important because if we get a rubbish show of numbers I'm afraid EU events are on hold until June and our very own SAdraGoons Sunday Event in which I admin.

We've got Rifles for that one tonight. So do please show up for both. And looking forward to the newest video Endman.

Now we got the Monday EU line battle happening in less than an hour. If you can attend please do show up in the Mumble channel thank you. We also have the American line battle around 8PM EST tonight too. I'm looking forward to both.

All in all a decent line battle on our part (meanwhile the admins were pants on head retarded). We did pretty well aside from that one round where we all died to heavy cav two minutes in.

I'm just embarrassed at how bad the three years old EU community is at sometimes setting up a simple weekly event.

Monday American Line battle in around 45 minutes from now. I'm just lurking about on the Mumble. If you feel like it drop on by goons.

I'll play aoe2 with you ABC! There's also an AOE2HD thread where you can try to find other goons to play with too.

Also midterms are the worst. My playing time is going to be severely hampered until summer quarter hits .

There's only three of us in the Mumble at the moment. Siege is a fun game mode. Just like all the others.
