Changes to Units.txt file = MOD?

I want to (eventually) distribute a campaign as a standard campaign that doesn't require a Mod. In other words, to play the campaign as intended, players just need to download the campaign and go, with no other files. To my understanding, a Mod has to be downloaded separately from a campaign. When I...

Re: Campaign Branch Settings Problem -- Ouch!

I was able to put the campaign back together. For future reference to other would-be designers: 1) If your campaign crashes check the following a)Won't save after a minor change - there might be a serious problem somewhere such as memory conflict, corrupted file, etc. b)Won't load next scenario - mo...

Thank you Gabe!

How do you reset the game saver?

My autosave got stuck on save each after each turn.

Anybody know how to reset it to default?

thanks,
conboy

This might be jamming up my (computer) memory.

Re: Campaign Branch Settings Problem -- Ouch!

Thanks Gunny.

It crashed again after I completely redid the whole campaign, saved it. Then forgot that I hadn't added the Canadians in, did so, now it won't save.

Don't know about this now. Losing patience. But that's a personal problem...

Re: Campaign Branch Settings Problem -- Ouch!

The typo thing was only wishful thinking. The problem started yesterday, I think, when the Forces Panel came up all gray in campaign play mode. Nothing has saved correctly or worked correctly since then. I also noticed in a scenario in Editor Mode that the pop-ups were opening showing pictures - but...

Re: Campaign Branch Settings Problem -- Ouch! ALL TAKE NOTE

All, I think the problem was due to a typo in the scenario list! Every problem with the campaign editor I have had are due to typos and not having the Alliances Settings squared away. So, new guys to scenario and campaign design, if you have a problem with the campaign editor, make sure that ALL you...

Re: Campaign Branch Settings Problem -- Ouch!

This is really getting strange -- There is something wrong with the 10 Anzio Breakout scenario. I'm going back reloading the scenarios into the Settings/Branch map and when I get to 10 Anzio Breakou, it shows up without out the Tab Labels and without the Minor Victory and Major Victory Tabs. I'll se...

Re: Campaign Branch Settings Problem -- Ouch!

Gunny, I didn't lose the scenario, it just inexplicably dropped off the Branch/Settings list. I have backups but I'm trying to prevent this from happening again... thanks for your interest and response! Hopefully someone has had this experience before -- I have, and it is quite tiresome! conboy (ago...

Re: New Scenarios

Gunny,
You don't have to root around to find them.

Click on the link at the bottom of Edward's announcement, then go to the first page. The first post is a list of Edward's scenarios, including the new ones.

enjoy your Valentine's Day!

See below, the tab header labels are gone and the two event results are missing on the right: Screenshot 16.jpg But when I click on the scenario above the bad one, and it's okay. See below.

Re: Campaign Factions

Thanks for responding, Erik. I am using the Vichy French (as foes) also so really can't go that route.

All,
Just in general, in a campaign, can one use the same faction as a Human in one scenario, and as AI in another scenario? (as long as it's on the same team, of course)

Campaign Factions

I'd like to use Free French in my campaign and in most Scenarios I have used them in human control. However, in one scenario that I have not integrated them into the campaign, I want them to be under AI control. QUESTION: Is is possible to have a campaign with a faction both under Human Control and ...

Re: Commanders.txt file question

Gabe, Zekedia,
Thanks -- based on your input and my limited understanding of this game, I think I'll go ahead and modify a few of the enlisted commanders and take my chances. It appears to be a low-risk change that will improve the scenario and overall campaign.

Commanders.txt file question

Hidee-ho, If I modify the commanders.txt file to increase a US Land commander's capabilities, will it potentially foul up gameplay somewhere? I edited it to allow REDUSA to receive commanders just fine. Just wondering what changing the attributes might do to other aspects of gameplay outside of the ...

Re: "Relieving" Allied Units -- freezing them until relieved?

I am giving up on this -- the individual pieces work but when assembled, there's always something that screws it up. - Relieving units can't move into the relieved units' positions until the next turn, allowing enemy troops to move in to the position on the next half-turn. - If units-to-be-relieved ...

Re: Supply runs out abruptly!?

Thanks Erik -- and anybody else that's interested. The allies run very low on supply when about 5 hexes NNE of Avellino. Strange - can't figure this out. This is definitely pre-release, so take it with a grain of salt. If you aren't interested in helping to troubleshoot, please don't download -- it'...

Re: Supply runs out abruptly!?

Gunny, It's a scenario I'm developing. I went through your list of stuff to check and no joy. I would say that it's a one time thing, but it has happened twice and I ain't liking how this is going! thanks again, when I get done with this campaign, I'll be happy to play some of yours. Erik, my man --...
