    Default Waterloo Interactive Battle Simulator - fun game

    Another great time-waster. The good chatters tried it out for a bit and concluded that it's short, but fun. Endless replay value though.

    Think you're a better general than Napoleon or Wellington? Here's your chance to find out!

    Try to get an Early French Major Victory if you play as Napoleon or a Complete Allied Major Victory if you play as Wellington. The latter is easier to get than the former.

    Hmm "Allied Minor Victory". It's cool but I'm not sure what you're supposed to base your decisions off of.

    *tries again*

    "French Major Victory" woo!

    "complete allied total victory" woo"

    You just have to memorize the right options.

    Same. It's a bit random though.

    I like it. The randomality means luck plays a part, too.

    Draw - The battle of Waterloo has been a costly affair for both sides. The French army is not able to sustain itself in the kingdom of the Netherlands, but still retains some formations. Napoleon combines these troops with Grouchy's army. He hopes to rally other French troops located in the various garrisons and put up a defense of France. With Austrians on the border and the Russians fast approaching only a miracle or Napoleon can save the situation.

    Damned I'm bad at this

    I ask because it's usually something like that which causes outbursts like this, needless to say I dissagree completely.

    You have to work for it!

    Just go to the Waterloo link, backtrack through Napoleon to Empires, and then there should be Rome.

    *bangs head on desk*
    After MANY tries, I finally got an Early French Victory.

    Wellington's Army has been beaten completely and decisively. Surviving Early French Major Victory - British soldiers try to make their way back to the coast for evacuation back to England. Brussels is thrown into a complete panic and British citizens clog the roads on the way to harbors trying to find whatever transportation than can find back to England. The largely intact French army turns on Blucher's Prussians and deals them a decisive loss. Napoleon is restored to his throne. With their two allies gone Austria and Russia seek terms and the napoleonic era lives.
    Solution below. WARNING: Prepare for carpal tunnel syndrome.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Attack Wellington's Right. If you get a draw or a minor defeat, replay. You are looking for a minor victory. This first move is the single hardest part of the game to achieve. You get a minor victory in maybe 1 in 50 tries.
    Bombard the Allied Line. Hopefully you will receive a minor victory. If not, restart (yes, it sucks, but you wont win if you receive a draw).
    Persue the Allies. Anything can happen, but once again we are looking for a victory. Restart if you receive a draw or defeat. This is the money shot. If you get a victory here, you win.

    Well I seem to have got just about every possible result... including losing in a Complete Allied Major Victory... I just kept putting pressure on Wellington's right, but it just kept failing every time, as in I lost every assault.

    You can also get a Early French victory by making a secondary attack on Hougoumont (and get a draw), then making the cav charge (to get a major victory if lucky and that's quite common), then have some luck and win a few minors victories before they rout.
    We are all aware that the senses can be deceived, the eyes fooled. But how can we be sure our senses are not being deceived at any particular time, or even all the time? Might I just be a brain in a tank somewhere, tricked all my life into believing in the events of this world by some insane computer? And does my life gain or lose meaning based on my reaction to such solipsism?
