The game is very old and MP is not very robust. All players should always close down the game if already open and restart it when playing a new battle. This is also true for restarts. NEVER, NEVER try restarting a battle without exiting and restarting the game.

It's pretty hard to say what happened. Likely you didn't set a text box or radio button correctly. There is a pdf manual in the Scenario Generator folder that explains how to create a scenario.

Hi everyone!
after creating a new scenario following the manual and adding the folder within Scourge of War Waterloo\Mods\KS Napoleon Mod II 136\Scenarios folder, I'm getting a "level not found" error message as soon as I try to launch it. A second error message is "Cannot open heightfield TGA".
I saw that this happened already to someone and that the problem resulted from the missing map's name in scenario.ini.
However, my scenario.ini file seems to be correct, since I can see "map=Nap_Aus_CVWest" (this is the map I'm using).

Do you have any idea about how to solve this?

in the following you can see the last log about this launching failure:

You are using a map from the SOWGB series. You need to have that game and transfer the map over to SOWWL. If you don't have that game, just pick a different map.

Thank you Uncle Billy for your reply.

First of all, a question: how can I understand if I'm using a map from SOWGB? I thought that Nap_Aus could be agood reference to the napoleonic wars (i'm totaly not an expert with this).

Then, actually I was having the same problem with other maps...I solved it changing the starting time: I was using 08:00 as starting time (not 8:00), but apparently the hh:mm notation is not enough. I had to change the starting time at 10:00 and now it's working fine.

Still, there is something not running smoothly: I put an objetcive in the middle of the map and defined "Attack" as match type. However, if I play as team 1, the team 2 (AI) is not moving at all (and AI has 4 divisions...all steady). I didn't try playing as team 2, but I understood from the manual that there should not exist suche a difference playing with KS mod.
Solution or suggestions for this?

Many thanks!

What version of the mod are you using, 1.35 or 1.36?

I don't know why your scenario didn't work as intended. Was the NoAI=1 set in the sowwl.ini file?

SOWGB maps that can be used in SOWWL if you have them are CVWest, FBSC, GBurg, Culps Hill and DD_RT.

Right now I have noAI=0 ... I thought this is the correct way out of the debug modality.

[debug]
alphaomega=0
noai=0

I checked also with some original KS scenarios, such as KSAustrianScenario42 and KSFrenchScenario1 ... same problem here: the AI is simply not moving at all.
Thank you for maps' explanation.

I tried KSFrenchScenario1. It worked fine for me. Are you using the latest version of the AI dll, the one you downloaded yesterday?

Yes.
For FrenchScenario1 I see all the AI units activating and moving towards the obj. in the SW corner of the map.
For AustrianScenario42 I see all the French units moving forward to attack.

The Scenario Generator now version 1.75 has been updated. Now corps and army commanders can be placed in specific locations if desired. This can be important with the new strategic AI. See the SG manual that is included and has been updated.  It can be accessed in the Scenario Generator itself.  The download link is in the first post of this thread.

A new version of the Scenario Generator, version 1.76, has been uploaded. It fixes a small bug having to do with Corps commander icons remaining on the map even if that Corps is not part of the scenario. As always, the link is in the first post of this thread.

If I select the army composition as random instead of campaign, can I still rename different commanders? Or will these be changed when the scenario loads?

I am not sure what you are asking. The commander names in scenatio.csv are not used in the game. The names used in the game are contained in OOBNames.xml. You can find it in Layout/Language/Media subfolder of the mod. You can change the names in it if you want different names.

I don't know for certain, but I doubt the scenario generator will be compatible. I do not own the "new" game, nor do I plan to do so. With the same game engine, it will be very much the same game.

You have tried to create an artillery corps using an OOB that does not have one. You will need to open your scenario.csv and go to the line containing the art. corps cmdr. Go to column K and change it to country abbreviation_ART_CDR_RES. For example, if column K contained SP_INF_CDR_Corps, you'd change it to SP_ART_CDR_RES.
