Of all the STUPID things one could do how could he not know to change the bgroups total to 55 and the fpools total to 55?

The only thing that stinks is that it appears to me there is no way to prevent the British BG from being called an "American Armored Battlegroup" when viewing the BattleGroup screen.(very top center of screen)
This would be the Type of BG one enters on the bgroups page of the workbook.

The file in the ScrnGadg is BGBATTLEGROUPTYPE_002

Unless you guys know something I don't in order to be able to expand and assign those files?
Currently there are 12 files.BGBATTLEGROUPTYPE_000 through BGBATTLEGROUPTYPE_011

I don't know if it is the first time it is done but the display of the medals on the board is an outstanding idea. Well done! Maybe the same can be done with the ranks.

It is not the first time it has been done.
TT did this for his Vet Mod for CCIV I just followed suit with the idea while importing his Mod into WaR.

I now need to add the British medals seeing as how I just added that nation to the Mod.
Hopefully it will fit and still look pretty good.

As for the Ranks I don't see that happening,just not enough room.
There is this someone created though.

Rank Guide


Edit:
Now with the British Medals

Hey all! First off, I love the level of information here on the forums! Very helpful.

N00b question-I have managed to add a battlegroup, up the population to 55, and with paint make it viewable on the scenario editor page. HOWEVER, on the strategic map, it is nearly completely invisible, except for the small nationality flag. I can still 'feel around' for it, and move it...where am I failing to look/mod in order for it to show?

Many thanks...

If you were using Paint you won't have been able to save the graphic file as a 24 bit uncompressed TARGA. For that you'd need Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro or Mafi's new wunder-program: http://home.claranet.de/ftf/

Remember too not to use pure white or strange things will happen on screen, like bits will be missing. 245, 245, 245 does just fine (IIRC).
