Download and put the 1v1 scenario in the My Games etc Scenarios folder. Then simply select the Editor from the main menu and load the scenario clicking the appropriate button in the lower-right.

Hello Everybody,

This is a great topic since there are so many fantastic scenarios that have been created. However I play on a Mac, would you be able to tell me as well where the files should go since this has been a very frustrating thing for me!
Thanks for all the help!
Thierry

Custom campaigns are placed in the Campaign file in Documents/MyGames/OrderofBattle/Campaigns. You are in the installation file where the game engine and everything else . See my screenshot below.

Another picture....
Note that everything custom; campaigns, scenarios and mods go into their specific folders under My Games etc.

OK got it. The key was to not put it where I loaded the game onto my hard drive. It goes in the main drive of your computer even if the game is on a totally different hard drive. Did that and it works! Thanks! I love this game!

Here is some more info that you probably do not need but anyway: .... Often most any game can have stuff in various places but usually its either in the installation folder where one installed the game OR somewhere in your documents folder.

When you double click on your Documents folder you may also see a folder in it called My Games this you may need to open to find other stuff

being a PRO you can make shortcuts to various folders so you can get back to them quickly
such as a shortcut that is placed on your desktop to the Campaigns folder having this shortcut you can then download a community made campaign then once you unzip it and Right Mouse click the unzipped campaign folder and copy it you can then double click the shortcut on your desktop and WHAM you just copy the campaign to this location....and enjoy it. Hope this makes sense.

I just started experimenting with downloading custom stuff and have had mixed results. First the good news. I downloaded a multiplayer scenario (umm think it was an alaskan island) and was able to successfully join a multiplayer game with that map. Great! Perhaps rashly I then moved on to a custom campaign, specifically Germany East 1945_1.2 No luck. I'm sure I've got it in the correct folder at least, Campaigns. I unzipped it, maybe that's the problem... Or should I reset steam? Looking at the other posts it seems like I have a lot of company in finding this process a little on the tricky side.

Wait never mind think I sorted it out. For some stupid reason windows was creating a folder within a folder with the same name (so I wouldn't realize unless I went in the folder) when extracting. So I still think this is a pain, but for reasons entirely the fault of Microsoft rather than Slitherine.
