Importing cores for custom campaigns

Post by prattaa » Sun Feb 26, 2017 3:32 pm

Hoping the devs will assist with Erik's campaigns and tell us what the correct syntax would be to import a core from his "Blitzkrieg39-41" to his new "Blitzkrieg41-42E" campaign. Looking through the stock campaigns I see the following in the original Japan and USA campaigns.
[CORES]
IJN = japan
importable japan, 3SinoJapWar, IJN
[CORES]
usaCore = usa
importable trainingCore, 0Tutorial, usaCore
In the new campaign from Erik I tried the following w/o success.
[CORES]
wehrmacht = germany
importable germany, Blitzkrieg39-41, wehrmacht
It would be nice to get some assistance with this. :D

The syntax is:
importable <core name to import from>, <folder name of the campaign to import from>, <core name to import to>

I didn't check Erik's campaign files, but I assume it should be:
importable wehrmacht, Blitzkrieg39-41, wehrmacht

instead of
importable germany, Blitzkrieg39-41, wehrmacht

Following line works:

importable wehrmacht, Blitzkrieg39-40, wehrmacht

Thanks, adherbal!

PS: just noticed that the Waffen-SS units won't be imported together with the regular units. :(

Import tip: you save plenty requisition points if you don’t manually reform outdated units and upgrade them afterwards. Instead, purchase new ones and confirm about reviving a destroyed unit. The game will automatically pick the highest experienced units first from the former/destroyed core units for the purchased class.

You can use note pad. The data.cmp is a pure txt file.
I use the free Notepad++ wich has a number of enhancments compared to Notepad.
