If it's not under data/ of your main game folder - did you look in your "my games" folder? Probably there under "scenario".

Or is it for a custom campaign? Then maybe you saved it in the campaign's mod folder/data.

I meant I cant find the scenario in the game.

Sorry for not making myself very clear.

It must be saved in the [My Games]\Panzer Corps\scenario folder.

To find it in the game: New Game, Scenarios (tab in top right), scroll through list to bottom and Custom, then select it from the list. Make sure it has a name otherwise it might still not display, although it will be in the list.

It must be saved in Documents\My Games\Panzer Corps\Scenario, like El Condoro said.
Otherwise it won't be loaded.

I think you need to have both files, pzloc and pzscn, there.

That looks like the game Data folder. Your My Games folder will be somewhere under User in Win 7. I am putting together a guide atm.

@bram1979, I believe you are putting it in the Panzer Corps program folder. They need to go to the Panzer Corps folder in My Games from your Documents of the Libraries section (Bibliotheken/Documenten from your screenshot). Create the Scenarios folder there, put them inside, and it should work.

Thanks AgentX... It works!!!

I'm putting together some PBEM scenario's for my Wargaming community.
We mostly play CMx1 (all versions) and CMBN but some of us are also playing Panzer Corps.
So I'm putting together a few PBEM scenarios for a small tourney I will be hosting soon.

The language is in Dutch btw :)
