28 11/29/2018 6:47:00 AM Spring 1861 Moderator Message EP revised ruling:
The Emancipation Proclamation event requires that the Union wins a medium or large battle. Two exceptions are overruns (5.72) and Army Amphibious Assault (6.15). The Design Note under 5.72 is in the context of overrun only, where any size force overrunning a fort would trigger EP.

* An amphibious assault on an ungarrisoned fort will not trigger EP except in the rare case where an Union Army wins the AA and 6 SP are involved.

** An ungarrisoned coastal fort has 0 SP. If you were to capture it in a Small battle, this would NOT trigger EP.

10 11/20/2018 2:10:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Ken any chance we could exchange files with Vassal instead of Cyberboard? I am using a 4K monitor which runs at a very high resolution (3840 x 2160.)
With Vassal the map zoom is set by the user and can be of any degree (100%, 50%, 150%, etc) while with cyberboard the zoom is set by the program (full or half scale with no variation) which makes it difficult to use with a high resolution monitor.
