BA2 Freezes with custom scenarios

Post by rjh1971 » Wed Dec 10, 2014 10:45 pm

Hi all

I'm trying to install the custom scenarios by Enric, and after pasting the link (for example: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/535 ... 9.CPF?dl=1) and clicking to start the download my game freezes.
Weird thing is that I was able to install previous custom scenarios, like Smolensk by Cavehobbit, among others.

I have Norton 360 Premier installed, I have looked into the firewall and searched for BA2 and have allowed all exes to have access to internet.

I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the game and applied the first patch.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Links to CPF files won't work. The ingame downloader expects .LST files which add the campaigns to your download list. The CPF files are raw data which will almost certainly hang the game.

Cheers

That link is not mine. Neither the scenario PA_BA2_SOVKHOZ79.CPF is mine.
As Pip said all links to scenarios should be .lst you can find my scenarios here: viewtopic.php?f=313&t=53404&p=498802#p498802

Thanks Pip for your reply,i finally found what I was doing wrong, I was copy/pasting the link with the lst files.

@Enric, I have to beg your pardon, you're right that link is not yours but Cavehobbit's, I had it copied to the clipboard trying to install it and did not check when I made the post.
The scenarios I wanted to installed are nevertheless the ones you posted in your link. They look pretty interesting.

Regards.
