How to download scenarios for the themed event . . .

Post by stockwellpete » Tue Sep 30, 2014 8:11 am

Please note: only one of the players needs to download the scenario to get the match underway.

Method 1

Click on the scenario link - Save - move it to My Documents - Slitherine - Scenarios folder - and then "Extract All" using J-Zip.

If anyone needs assistance with this procedure then please let me know.

J-Zip free download is here . . .

Method 2

You can use this if you have WINRAR on your computer . . .

Click on scenario link in the forum
Click on "Open" and the WINRAR window will open
Click on the second line down that shows the name of the battle in the WINRAR window
Click on "Extract to" in the top menu of the WINRAR window
Extract it to "Libraries" - "My Documents" - "Slitherine" - "Field of Glory scenarios"
The scenario will appear in the "Custom scenarios" drop-down list (not the historical scenarios drop-down list).

Here are the scenarios . . .

1) Bouvines 1214

I have one player struggling to download scenarios. Is there anybody else in difficulties? You only need one player to download the scenario to actually play the battle.

Download the file, and pack it up with MacPAR deLuxe or StuffIt Expander.

You can download them for free at http://www.macupdate.com.

When the file is expanded there will be a folder inside the folder, both with the senario name.

Move the second folder (tho one containing the "data" folder) to your home folder/ Documents/ Slitherine/ FieldOfGlory Scenarios.

At the next startup of FoG it will be available in the custom scenario field.
