ok so when I looked at the image background folder - the .dat files where very old (there were 3 one for each zoom) - there were none in backgroundnames

I deleted the old .dat files and started the game - same issue no correct US map (except the minimap)

and no rebuilt .dat files

ok so I have sorted the correct MAP for v4.0 (some weird virtual folders issue - which I don't understand)

for 4c though, I have somehow created the the right map outline but have large swaths of the map with no detail, just black or grey with the units on them - which files would be missing for that I wonder.

anyway I will reload 4c files over the top and see if that fixes it

4c files are old files. Depending upon what 4c files you downloaded, there was a partial update for 4c and a full update for 4c.

As I said before do not use the 4c files, use the files from the link that Borger provided at the beginning of this thread.

yes I give up :-)

one note though - search your PC for old map .dat files, some builds (maybe Matrix 3.1) put them in strange places

Are the changes of version3.20 part of the final version 4.0?

Stauffenb, how can you do rank 2 for artillery, and armored tanks, battleship in GV4.0?

I can not get me to run rank 2 in firing (bomber rank style
my mod unit.rar

The motorized unit has turned it into artillery

unit.txt
Attack Range 1 1 2 2 99 4 4 5 1 1 2 2 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1

Are you speaking about attack range 2 or tech level 2?

Attack range is set in unit.txt.

Possible bug. Air units cannot move to Wooded Hills terrain, but they can rail into it.

Bug found and fixed. Thanks for reporting it.

I will keep the fix for a few days in case we get more bugs reported since the bug won't affect game play much. When the bugfix is ready I will make a separate post about it.

1-Yes, Attack Range it does not work for me to change the untis.txt file example in unit.rar Below this post. The trigger marker only reaches the first hex, and does not reach the second hex, even by placing 2 hexagons in the tank information, example Image Below this post.

changed line unit.txt Changed for three units (motorised_corps =artillery ), Armour tank and Battleship, without me working yet, and I do not know where the fault is.

Example Attack Range
motorised_corps =new artillery =2
Armour =2
Battleship= 2

Attack Range 1 1 2 2 99 4 4 5 1 1 2 2 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1



2-For version GV4.0 there will be a free editor for everyone to download?

You should discuss this in another thread.
1 the scale of the game is about 50km / hex so artillery would not have the range of 2 hexes in corps size or lower units.

2) There will not be an editor provided or available.

1-Let's see if anyone gives me the solution to rank 2 that it does not work. In old versions I worked on this one does not work for me.

2-It's a great pity not to have a free publisher version.

Installed OK, figured out how to get the sound going but... I lost the big maps option (I may have accidentally opted for low resolution).
How do I get that back?

Changed LOW RAM setting to 2 in GS400_settings and got the big maps back but now half of America's seaports are under water!
Help!
