Creating Scenario Maps for Ipad( Battle Academy)?

Post by HOrdekillz » Tue Jan 21, 2014 2:13 am

I was just wondering if iOS game of Battle Academy lets you create scenario maps and be able to play it. All I've seen so far is on the pc version. I have it for Ipad.

There is no map editor version available (or really possible) for iPad. There is an iOS version for mac.
I think the best way to describe our operations to date is that they have violated every recognized principle of war.

You can - you need to follow the directions about building LST files.

The wiki also contains a lot of helpful information about modding.

Hi guys! (I'm french, sorry for the language^^)
I just downloaded the demo version for Mac, to be able to create scenario for my iPad 3. I already bought the complete version of BA for my iPad last year, and I would like to play my scenario on it. I red the instructions to transfer the scenario on it, but I didn't understand everything: I don't succeed in turning my already done scenario into a CSF file (in USER.txt, there's nothing wrote... I wrote down "DEBUG 1", but nothing happens by opening BA) and I don't understand how to make a LST file too...
Then, could you recommend me a free site to stock the file (if I good understood, I need it).
Please, help me ;) :oops:

Generate the CPF file:

At first you must have into your USER.TXT file: DEBUGMODE 1

Then launch BA, go to the editor, select your campaign and clic on the green lizard Slitherine button (bottom left.) This process takes several seconds (depending on the size of the campaign.)

And the CPF file will be into your BA user folder (ie ...\Documents\my games\BA)

Generate the LST file:

You must edit a text file with the following lines:

Code: Select all

FILENAME FILE.LST

[0]
NAME FILE.CPF
SHOWNAME NAME_DISPLAYED
DESC DESCRIPTION_DISPLAYED
MAKER YOUR_NICKNAME
TYPE 0 or 1 (0: SOLO / 1: MP)
SIZE THE_SIZE_OF_CPF_FILE
#URL URL_OF_FILE.CPF
Of course you must also replacing FILE.LST, FILE.CPF, NAME_DISPLAYED, DESCRIPTION_DISPLAYED, YOUR_NICKNAME, etc.

Then you must put this two files on a public server like Dropbox.

On the selection campaign to edit screen you have the green lizard button if DEBUGMODE is set to 1 into your USER.TXT:

There's no lizard... Maybe it doesn't work on the demo version?

I would have to check the code but I would not expect that it works on the demo version, no. That said, you do need to have the DEBUGMODE 1 line added to your user.txt file to get the campaign packaging icon to appear.

You can enter the URL for an LST file on the iPad version, yes. The direct download button is on the top right of the user content screen. You can of course also download all the official scenarios from the list simply by selecting them
