Re: Trigger Timer works -- Predictive Table

Carolina, I can't post any pictures now because Hotel internet is all jammed up and I'm doing this on my phone . But what you need to do is set the timer as shown in the tables and have it actuate another trigger. So if you want to blow up a bridge 3 turns after another event 1) have the first event...

Re: Hard Lesson Learned the Hard Way About CORES

Bru, Bru888: overlooking or forgetting a warning about this . . . in one of your own threads! Thanks for the response. It's hard to remember the things you read in passing -- this time, the lesson is burned in! Most of the time the error is mine in Campaign design, but there's nothing you can do if ...

Hard Lesson Learned the Hard Way About CORES

Took me several hours of troubleshooting, deleting the campaign and redoing all the settings several times, deleting scenarios and restarting, even re-doing scenarios, etc. etc. etc. to arrive at the following revelation (just to save some other campaign designer a lot of grief!): If you don't put a...

Trigger Timer works -- Predictive Table

All, I think I figured a little bit out about the Trigger Timer. Here's a table for the values listed below to help determine how to set the timer to blow on a certain turn after actuation. It's a function of how many factions there are in a scenario but I can't figure out the logic precisely. It wo...

Re: Changes to Units.txt file = MOD?

Thank you, Gabe, for taking the time to respond in an enlightening manner. I think I have a better understanding of this issue now. When I am sure of this new enlightenment, I will try to put it simply for other would-be designers wishing to avoid the Mod concept. I must say that it is good to know ...

Gabe, Terminator: Thanks for responding. Terminator, I mis-spoke -- I modified the units.csv file, there is no "units.txt" file as you pointed out. I modified it with a text editor, which got me confused. Gabe, All: I understand you to say that changes in the .txt files go over automatically with th...

Changes to Units.txt file = MOD?

I want to (eventually) distribute a campaign as a standard campaign that doesn't require a Mod. In other words, to play the campaign as intended, players just need to download the campaign and go, with no other files. To my understanding, a Mod has to be downloaded separately from a campaign. When I...

Re: Campaign Branch Settings Problem -- Ouch!

I was able to put the campaign back together. For future reference to other would-be designers: 1) If your campaign crashes check the following a)Won't save after a minor change - there might be a serious problem somewhere such as memory conflict, corrupted file, etc. b)Won't load next scenario - mo...

How do you reset the game saver?

My autosave got stuck on save each after each turn.

Anybody know how to reset it to default?

This might be jamming up my (computer) memory.

Re: Campaign Branch Settings Problem -- Ouch!

Thanks Gunny.

It crashed again after I completely redid the whole campaign, saved it. Then forgot that I hadn't added the Canadians in, did so, now it won't save.

Don't know about this now. Losing patience. But that's a personal problem...

Re: Campaign Branch Settings Problem -- Ouch!

The typo thing was only wishful thinking. The problem started yesterday, I think, when the Forces Panel came up all gray in campaign play mode. Nothing has saved correctly or worked correctly since then. I also noticed in a scenario in Editor Mode that the pop-ups were opening showing pictures - but...

Re: Campaign Branch Settings Problem -- Ouch! ALL TAKE NOTE

All, I think the problem was due to a typo in the scenario list! Every problem with the campaign editor I have had are due to typos and not having the Alliances Settings squared away. So, new guys to scenario and campaign design, if you have a problem with the campaign editor, make sure that ALL you...

Re: Campaign Branch Settings Problem -- Ouch!

This is really getting strange -- There is something wrong with the 10 Anzio Breakout scenario. I'm going back reloading the scenarios into the Settings/Branch map and when I get to 10 Anzio Breakou, it shows up without out the Tab Labels and without the Minor Victory and Major Victory Tabs. I'll se...

Gunny, I didn't lose the scenario, it just inexplicably dropped off the Branch/Settings list. I have backups but I'm trying to prevent this from happening again... thanks for your interest and response!

Re: New Scenarios

Gunny,
You don't have to root around to find them.

Click on the link at the bottom of Edward's announcement, then go to the first page. The first post is a list of Edward's scenarios, including the new ones.

enjoy your Valentine's Day!

Re: Campaign Factions

Thanks for responding, Erik. I am using the Vichy French (as foes) also so really can't go that route.

All,
Just in general, in a campaign, can one use the same faction as a Human in one scenario, and as AI in another scenario? (as long as it's on the same team, of course)
