I can create 30 men strong chasseur squad through game files and I can even create 120 men strong chasseur company with officer, standard bearer and drummer...But how to assign just an officer to a 30 man strong chasseur squad?

I've got it working!

Below is the example for France nation.

There are two game files to edit (They can be found in BfE\Run\Data): France.NDS and Orders.LST

1. France.NDS
Scroll down to OFFICERS section and change the following lines:
UnitEgrNG(FR) NONE 1
LINE   1 #LINE15COSEGR 1 UnitEgrNG(FR)

to

UnitEgrNG(FR) NONE UnitOf(FR) 1
LINE   1 #LINE30COSEGR 1 UnitEgrNG(FR)

2. Orders.LST
Find the following formation:
#LINE30COSEGR SYM2 9 2 9 3 1 2

* * * * * * * * * *

* * * * * * * * * *

* * * * * * * * * *

and change it to

#LINE30COSEGR SYM2 9 2 9 3 1 2
             C

* * * * * * * * * *

* * * * * * * * * *

* * * * * * * * * *

Now France will have 30 man Chasseur squads to which you can assign an officer.

You can do the same to any nation just make sure to change the nation abbreviation (FR, EN, PR,...) appropriately.

Special note:

Poland nation does not have Chasseurs in a vanilla game. So you will have to give them one of the Chasseur/Jäger units from one of the other nations if you want them to have any. This will result in those two being almost identical (there will be some difference depending on the nation colour selected for that particular map) if used at the same time during gameplay (e.g.: if you give them French Chasseurs and then play with Poland against France).


I drink, therefore I am.
