ZULU WAR 1879 Discussion & Reference Forum ( A Small Victorian War in 1879)

Lord Chelmsford. I regret to report a very disastrous engagement which took place on the morning of 22nd January between the armies of the Zulu king Cetshwayo and our own No. 3 Column consisting of a total of 1500 men, officers and other ranks.

PostSubject: A game on the anglo zulu war   Wed Aug 18, 2010 12:46 pm

Hello, I am new here. I am a french history teacher. With an other french we created a mod for the game Napoleon total war. The mod is playable yet but far from finishing. You can see our work here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (panzerschreck is me)
And I would need some help: finding colour pics on the british army is easy whereas finding what each zulu regiment looked like is difficult. I have all the osprey books but I am looking for others sources. So, if you have some pics on zulu regiments, I will be very greateful.

thanks!

Hello there,
Welcome to the forum,
I also have a couple of questions

How do you use a mod?

How do you get it e.g. disk, download?

You say it is to be used with Napoleon Total War, how exactly do you do this?

How much would this mod cost?

As you can see, Im not a video game expert

Great work so far

thanks joe

To both of you, thank you for welcoming. A mod is a modification of a game , here a pc game, Napoleon Total war. The game Napoleon total war is a pc game and it 's on the napoleonic era.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
What we did is changing the era of this game to make it in 1879, in Zululand. we have to change things like uniforms, music, campaigns etc. The beta is already playable, but beta means that the mod isn't finished yet. Our work is totally free, we don't earn any money at all, but if you want to play the game you have to buy the real game, NTW, that is made by creative assembly and sega.

cheers

well, when you have the game (ntw), you download the mod from internet for free, and you install the new files into the original game. Then it adds the new units, music etc. and you are abble to play the new mod.

Hello Rungail,

Would this be the right game that the mod works on?
