OK guys fair warning these will overwrite exiting scenarios and are all beta versions of the scens with the new AI files, and updated and fixed dat files for the minimal AA and ASW fixes and adjustment we needed to do

They have the new AI files and should be good to go but worth checking

Hi Andy,

What means "minimal AA and ASW fixes and adjustment we needed..." ?

Can you offer some more details ?

+1


increased flak effects like into daBabes?




Andy Mac -> RE: Patch 07 unofficial data scen updates (10/16/2012 4:34:15 PM)

Some of them JWE redid the data data files for me to include those changes that we could squeeze in without a totall redo

I have a change log at home but I am out and about at present




Andy Mac -> RE: Patch 07 unofficial data scen updates (10/16/2012 4:38:32 PM)

Basically we fixed what we could like the super E's and some other issues and I redid several of the AI scripts for both sides and added some new ones to smaller scenarios

No, it refers to IJN E-type escort ships who had massive ASW capability, which was not too realistic. It was because of grouping of ASW weapons (it's one of the many things also fixed in Da Babes mod).

I didn't know this bad thing, thanks




Rainer -> RE: Patch 07 unofficial data scen updates (10/16/2012 8:44:27 PM)

EXE File "AEdataUpdateS1.exe" (after renaming from ZIP) installs the files into the root folder of AE, in my case
"J:\Matrix Games\War in the Pacific Admiral's Edition".

It should install the files into the sub folder SCEN, in my case
"J:\Matrix Games\War in the Pacific Admiral's Edition\SCEN".

People not aware of this will not enjoy the changes, and may not even notice.

To correct:
Make the exe file either install the files directly into the right folder (SCEN),
or let it install the files into a temp folder and move the files manually to the SCEN folder overwriting the original files.
In any case heed Andy's advice to back up the SCEN folder before installing the changes.

To check: if you load the game and a saved game a message should pop up asking
"Add data base changes to this official campaign (#1)? YES/NO"
Only if answered with YES the data base changes are applied.




jcjordan -> RE: Patch 07 unofficial data scen updates (10/17/2012 12:29:16 AM)

I get the follwing error when I try to extract any of the files after dowloading them - windows cannot open the folder, zip is invalid ??? This is before I'd have to rename the file to exe from a zip, so it's not working for me [&:] What am I missing?





Lesbaker -> RE: Patch 07 unofficial data scen updates (10/17/2012 12:51:45 AM)

The files are not Zipped (compressed), just rename the .zip to .exe, if you can't see the file extensions then open folder and search options, click the view tab and uncheck "Hide extensions for Known file types"




jcjordan -> RE: Patch 07 unofficial data scen updates (10/17/2012 1:03:57 AM)

I finally got it. I thought at first the extracted file would need to be renamed not the file downloaded needing to be downloaded as an exe instead of a zip. That's where I go off on




Lesbaker -> RE: Patch 07 unofficial data scen updates (10/17/2012 1:09:56 AM)

Glad to hear you got it sorted [;)]




Kull -> RE: Patch 07 unofficial data scen updates (10/17/2012 1:49:15 AM)

Can we expect an update to Scenario 23 (Alied Ironman)? I'm in the final development stages of a new "AE-Japan Set-up" spreadsheet that uses this scenario as the baseline, but before kicking off an actual campaign, I'll happily wait for an updated Scenario file!




PaxMondo -> RE: Patch 07 unofficial data scen updates (10/17/2012 3:14:12 AM)

Japan Ironman updates?  [:D][:D][:D]




PaxMondo -> RE: Patch 07 unofficial data scen updates (10/17/2012 3:15:13 AM)

Seriously though ...

Andy (and Team), this is a great, unexpected update.  Thanks to all of you guys for your superb ongoing efforts and support!!!
