    It's Sid Meier's Gettysburg, which was released shortly before. I have both (and "South Mountain Campaigns" as part of the "Sid Meier Civil War Collection".

    Oh, the original Gettysburg! Nice!

    I've played the second Gettysburg, I even bought it but it bugged out really bad so I got a refund. A bunch of white squares covered all my interfaces so I was unable to do anything.

    The second Gettysburg? I've never heard of such a thing...I know another company used the engine to do Waterloo and Austerlitz. Who was your game by?

    I'm not really sure... but the graphics looked much better. At least 2 megapixels, and the interface was much different.

    EDIT: All right, found it. Titled American Civil War: Gettysburg. It looks like it would play very similarly to Sid Meier's original, and I also last played it like 3 years ago, which is why I thought it was from him.

    SmellinCoffee: Are you still on Windows 98 or did you manage to get it working on XP or 7, and if so how?

    I'm playing it on Vista, actually. I assume I have compatibility mode on, but the only performance problem I have is that I can't save the game without it crashing to the desktop (hence why I've only been playing small-scale skirmishes and not larger battles which take a few real-life hours.)

    I can't remember if I played this on an XP or not: I know I used to play it in 2004/2005, and I moved to an XP computer in late 2005...

    What do you mean by "GB"? If you mean gigabytes, it takes 1/2 a gigabyte.

    Started to download it, and I'm getting 1/10th of the speed I should be. Dunno why this mod is particularity slow, but checking its subforum there seems to be a common issue with that.

    EDIT:

    Apparently we have all broken the "PAx- something or other" (that none of us have any idea about what it is little alone agreed to it) and this giant saucer UFO dude shows up to enforce it. Well then, we'll see how he likes my main fleet (which was admittedly, at that point, small, but still more advanced than anyone else),

    While returning from a merchant trip to Scotland selling salt I came upon a port city (I suspect they just rolled the port into the major urban center that was inland for ease of modding) under siege, with several merchant ships sitting off the coast like ripe fruit for the picking.

    Too bad I was an honest merchant :(

    Saturday's Civil War event with the new MP civil war mod Secession which just had its first alpha release. We are still deciding what to call our regiment for it which is why our M&M tags are still on.

    What started as what seemed like a needlessly suicidal charge across open ground to the middle garden ended in victory as we routed the confederate dogs with minimal casualties!

    Well except for the one guy who killed like 5 people (circle of corpses outside the wall), but we still won!

    A very good mod set in 638ish AD British isles, its a little bit harder than Native Warband but a lot of fun. Although its really easy to get rich because the Welsh towns are full of cheap silver, minerals and stone that can be sold for a profit of 300-350 almost anywhere else. I also don't recommend playing it with less than 4 gigs of RAM (or on XP).

    It turns out that the Diver from Commandos 2 is actually Jesus.

    Nah he's just running really quickly over the thin ice layer that has formed.

    The thing is he doesn't actually run over the ice. He's stuck in this position (and in this pose) and can't move, I didn't even know the water at that place could freeze.

    One of the new maps in RO2, Grain Elevator. Fun map, too many windows to watch out for though. Thankfully the top few stories are not accessible.
