Re: Scenario Generator for Scourge of War

Post  Leffe7 on Thu Oct 09, 2014 10:03 pm

I updated the Download link for v3.0.

In this release I added the Napoleonic OOBs (including Russia), Blenheim, Fontenoy and 4 ACW OOBs which make use of Martin James' Mod for the new sprites and flags used. Extra thanks go also to Grog for doing the new portraits in the KS mods.
I added the Lynchburg Map and the Blenheim variants of existing maps.
I also increased the max regiments number per brigade from 9 to 14. Let those Russian grand batteries open fire!

Cheers

Thanks for all your very useful job
However I have 2 problems :
1- When I write a french OOB (ie 1ère Division and not 1st Division or Division de Cavalerie and not Cavalry Division) and then create scenario files the generator automatically restore the enghlish way and Division commander C1-D1 come back to : 1st Division..... etc. Is there a way to change that ? or modify a Visual Basic module ?

2- I don't understand how the map choice is working and I'm not able to add map working properly with good size in KS mod and moreover except SOW stock game map and map 2.1 to 3.2 others maps in generator list are not working properly and if I choose : Nap Rand.Map6.2 (Portugal) by example I get a classical Garnier random mapnot KS size Question
In the other hand, if I use the sandbox I get the good map Exclamation and good size...

Hi August

welcome to the Forum. I try to give some advice.

- If you Import your own OOB into the Generator and want to Keep your Unit names, then put a 1 in column AK (I think it was this column), otherwise you will have the generic english names.

- Currently most maps will not work with the KS Napoleon mod, as Kevin changes the map names for the replay viewer. I will update the Generator in a few weeks so this works again. Maps should work ok for ACW OOBs.
- make sure to disable not used GCM Mods and enable the requires Mods for some of the maps.

Kind Regards
Stefan

Re: Scenario Generator for Scourge of War

Post  Iberalc on Sat Dec 20, 2014 11:11 am

I'm trying to make my first MP scenario. I work with the Scenario Generator and everything seems to be fine.

But when I try to deploy the troops in specific spots, pressing the "L" key like it is explained here:

http://www.norbsoftdev.net/forum/modifications/54209-mp-scenario-creation-tutorial

I get a startloc file with this kind of data on columns E & F:

loc x loc z
166.034.859.375 221.010.156.250

The scenario.csv file where I should paste the above, has this kind of data:

loc x loc z
183370 232370

So when I open the scenario with alphaomega and so on, I find some mixed troops from both sides on the northwestern corner of the map, and that's it.  No

What's the best way to finetune deployment of forces when making a scenario?  confused

Thanks.

It sounds like you are placing all the troops in the same sector, A1. You can select different sectors for each division.

No Kevin when I make the scenario with the Generator, all troops are placed in different sectors where I want them.

Then I open the SOWGB.ini file and write the information below:

[Debug]
DbgLvl=2
NoAI=1
AlphaOmega=1

Then I go back to the game, and start positioning the troops where I want them to be at the start of the scenario.

When I finnish troop deployment I hit the “L” key, and get startloc file.

I think the problem is that the numbers I am getting as coordinates (x,z) in the starloc file don't have the same format that the ones in the scenario.csv file.
There should be 5 or 6 digits, and not 12 digits with dots. pale

I don't know why, but the topic from Norbsofdev is 2 years old.

That's how I create scenarios. I have had no problems. I just copy the 4 columns from startlocs and paste them into the scenario file.

Re: Scenario Generator for Scourge of War

Post  Mr. Digby on Sun Dec 21, 2014 8:30 pm

I wonder if there is an issue with the Spanish language version of Excel here? The extra added 'dots' (decimal points?) looks suspicious. X and Y co-ordinates from either a scenario file or a startlocs file should always look like the attached:

Scenario:

http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

StartLocs:

http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

Another column you may be overlooking in the startlocs file which is as important as the x/y co-ords is the FORMATION column. This is column G in the startlocs file and must also be copied to the scenario file, column U. If you don't do this, any formations you set your troops up in while manually marching them across the map and positioning them will be lost.

Note also the startlocs file and scenario file data begins on different rows, so make sure you copy a block of rows across and not the whole column.

It is something similar, due to my regional configuration, the "dots" for us are not decimal points but the symbols for thousands (the opposite as you).

I could open the csv as a text file and change the symbols so I got the scenario working, but I need some more practice.

Many thanks.

No I don't think it is a problem in transferring, the transfer completes OK, what is being sent is corrupt in some way.
I always get the same error when opening the file, no matter how many times I download.

It is definitely NSDs server and not the file because I just downloaded it and it isn't corrupt. This has been going on at Norbsoft for several weeks now, probably 2 months at least. The file I just downloaded I re-uploaded to my Dropbox account so if you want to try getting it from there:

Thanks that worked, could this issue be something to do with the file type not being treated by the ftp client as a binary download or a problem in unpacking a file stored in encrypted form, just guessing really...

md5sum on the files downloaded are different.
Good one - aa21ac0dd57ee1f95540fc89c7437516
Bad one - 9322c05dffbab059009981e5af60d31a

Hi guys

I updated the Scenario Generator to v3.1
https://www.dropbox.com/s/vmebnbhdg2v5cjp/%5E%5E%20SCENARIO%20GENERATOR%20%5E%5E%20v3.1.zip?dl=0

Changes are:

  • Manassas Map added
  • All the Napoleonic Maps added (as included in the KS Supplemental Maps Mod).
  • Now the maps should be working with the replay viewer, too.


Please have a look and tell me if something is not working.

Kind regards
Stefan

If someone could give me positive reply after testing some of the new maps and the viewing in Kevins Replay Viewer, I will release v3.1 on the NSD Forum, too. Thanks Smile

Does it include Kevin's new France minimap of the Manassas map? This is a great minimap and really ought to be included.

No, there is no NAP Version of Manassas included yet. Where is that Map?
I dont think it is in the current KS NAP mod or in the Supplemental Maps Mod.

I've put together 2 of our weekend scenarios with the new version of SG and have had no problems watching them on the replay viewer. I'll send you the new Manassas minimaps. They will be included in the next version of the napy mod and ACW mod.

There is still a problem with the ammo wagons displaying the wrong portrait/flags. Since Mike greatly modified what is displayed on the left side of the toolbar, the default portrait value for the wagons is different for every country.

I created & played a scenario with the map "NAP Antietam PM (Spain)", that's the description in the Scenario generator. And Kevin's replay viewer crashes when I try to load the replay file.

I don't think any map name has brackets in. They should all be "Nap_Spain_CulpsHill_RM" format.
