  • After the scenario is said to be created, how do I launch the game? I did a single player and all appeared to go well, but I'm missing something here and the Manual didn't say much here...

    thanks,

  • I'm not seeing SCENARIO GENERATOR within User Scenarios?

    From Manual...

    How to start a generated Scenario in Singleplayer
    Singleplayer – User Scenarios – Select „^^ SCENARIO GENERATOR ^^“ at the bottom of the list. Choose your own commander from the list of all availables.

    thanks,

  • Hi Reb

    can you check if it is installed in the correct directory? (Work\Scenarios)
    Do you have any other custom scenarios that are working correctly? Such a folder should look similar to the scenario generator.

    Regards

  • Thanks Leffe7,

    Knock on wood, but everything I ever downloaded custom works fine. By custom, I assume that would be a scenario which would come from a Mod and not stock out of the box.

    Backing up, I assume the generator is making a folder of files? What I have done was simply renamed and saved the Scenario Generator File which remains a Worksheet File. I don't see a Folder named what I have given it, I don't see the typical Excel Comma Separated Value File as I see in other scenarios.

    I'm running Excel 2003.I also noticed that while creating Scenario Files, at the bottom of screen it briefly creates and flashes Book 1, Book 2 and Book 3

  • Hmm, perhaps there is still something installed wrong...

    Your scenarios go below Work\Scenarios
    So you should have a folder ...\Work\Scenarios\^^ SCENARIO GENERATOR ^^
    this folder includes files like

    battlescript.csv
    intro.txt
    scenario.csv
    ScenarioGenerator_v3.0.xls
    ...

    apart from the additional .doc and .xls file you should see exactly the same files as in other custom scenarios.

    You don't have to rename any of those files!
    What you can do is to make a copy of the whole folder and rename it (to save a scenario you created for example).

    Regards
    Leffe7

  • Great progress....I just copied the Complete Scenario Generator into User Scenarios and looks like everything will work. Map and army appeared (although Union) on map at locations selected....cool....I'm going like this if I get the hang of it. Wish there could be be more Corps, but I am grateful for what I have to work with. Next step is to use structured OOB's in lieu of the Random Select....

    Thanks, more questions coming for sure...

  • Howdy Leffe,
    I am currently running a 13 player pbem civil war campaign and using SOW as the engine that resolves the battles and tracks the OBs. Your scenario generator makes doing this very easy. I wanted to say thank you very much for your fine work!

  • Hi Leffe,

    I believe I have this figured out.....custom OOB's and objectives, etc...it's pretty neat....thanks....

    I do need to ask you if there is anyway to add more Corps to each side? But as said before, I'm grateful
    for what you have gave us....

    thanks,

    Kind Regards
