Then restart the scenario in the campaign.
I hope the new trigger works...
Ähm ... this is, what I get, when I try to start the scenario:

Well, it certainly looks like you are playing an old, bugged version of the Narvik scenario.
I just tested an old Norway save and loaded the last version. It works.
Please make sure you have have the last version. Link in first post.

OK, thanks for the fast reply.
But:
I have the new Version 2.6 from the Grand German Campaign (from today?) and I have deleted the old Version of it, before copying it into the campaign folder.
Also I have copied the small Narvik file into the 11Narvik folder.
And I have activated the WWIIHeroes(NN1.01) Mod.
There can only be one :)

I have loaded the last Round of the Denmark Scenario, to be sure, that the winning triggers are set correct.
Also I get the screen with the 4 Norwegian Scenarios, but after every scenario start I get only the map, with no way out :(.
What is about this "italian cores", I have read abot? do I need to replace something else?

The Italians were introduced as core units in the Sea Lion branch.
That means the game expects the Italian faction to be present in all later scenarios, wether they are actually used or not.
So I added them to all later scenarios.

It is really strange that you get the strat-map error.
Can you open the Narvik scenario in the editor and check to see if the Italians (and Waffen SS) are indeed present?

Everything seems to be ok.

OK, I have installed the sealions campaign and it doens'n't change anything. But on this way I found out, that I have perhaps a little chaos between my scenarios and the campaigns, so I check this now!
And the Editor has no way to to find the scenario, I get only two other scenarios from something else displayed!
I need to move the folder 11Narvik to this two strange scenarios .

You don't need to install any other campaign than the Germany Grand. And no scenarios need to be installed anywhere.
Everything is included in the campaign file.
But you must restart the problematic scenario, there's a button for this in options.

Ok, checked.
I have managed now that the Editor finds the campaign and the scenarios, and I have seen, that this seems to be not in line :

Oh and I try now to restart the scenario (not the first time I try this!)
It does'n't work :(

Thats right, it adds some heroes to the game and I have installed it , when I installed the grand campaign, becuas I have read, that this is necessary.
If not, I can surely try it without!

Ok, the first start works well, at next I try to move the last save file and try then to start the Norwegian scenarios,
Thanks for the hint
Ok, the save file shows the same error (strategic map instead of start the briefing).
I think I should play it once again from the start, to be sure, that is not the mod which produces the error!
see you later (much later *g)

After every update, the least you'll have to do is to RESTART the scenario, because the savegame files always include the old scenario files (the version they were saved with).
But instead of playing, try using the #igotnukes cheat first to advance to the Norway missions and see if they start alright.

Thanks, @GabeKnight & @Erik2
I have got it.
I have bombed my way through to Narvik, and now I can see it!
BIG THANK you both!
OH, but the mod is not the Problem, I did'n't know, that it is necessary after every update to restart the campaign (that's a little nervy!)

Usually only a scenario restart's necessary after the updates. Don't know why you had to restart the whole campaign this time. Maybe because of the added Italian faction or some other (more-or-less) major changes done in the campaign by Erik.

Anyways...I'm glad you sorted things out. :)

Nice to see you back on the battlefield.
And as Gabe mentioned, you should only need to restart a scenario to get back on track after an update.

Have the new heroes from PanzerKrieg been added? I think that´s what disuaded me from my last playthrough of the great campaign.

How about the heroes from Sandstorm, as I believe there are quite a few Italian core units in the Sea Lion part (never played this part though).

I have not gotten around to add the Sandstorm commanders.
I was thinking about adding them whenever the German Grand moves to North Africa.
