I installed Forgotten Battles 2.0 ,it seemed to install...the menu has Forgotten Battles 2.0 on it, but no new scenarios showed up in the game.
I ended up downloanding them separtly,installed them as usual, and they play fine. Just a littler concerned because I assumed some were included in the Forgotten Battles download.


Sorry, just saw this. It sounds you have a legit install there. No scenarios included in the install, all my and Warhorse's for an example are available from the Blitz Scenario Database.

The only scenarios included are the LWP Polish scenarios in the LWP mod, that I mistakenly included there.

PATCH time, unfortunately. I had missed pretty much all the French and UK airplane BIT files when migrating the files from West Front to East Front.

This will cause a East Front crash upon a Airstrike using either nations airplanes as the bit file containing the plane's shadow is not found.

Patch available here: => LINK REMOVED, INSTALL PATCH2 INSTEAD

Installation:

1) Disable Forgotten Battles 2.0 using JSGME

2) Download the zip file, unarchive, place the *.bit files into:
C:\Matrix Games\John Tiller's Campaign Series\Mods\ALL - Forgotten Battles 2.0\East Front

3) Enable Forgotten Battles 2.0 using JSGME

I've not only missed the UK and France Airplane BIT files when migrating the files from West Front to the East Front side of things, but US airplane BIT files as well.

This will cause a East Front crash upon a Airstrike using any of these nation's airplanes as the bit file containing the plane's shadow is not found, with error message: Failure to create primary surface

Patch 2, including contents of Patch1 as well (you only need patch2) available here: => LINK

INSTALLATION:

1) Disable Forgotten Battles 2.0 using JSGME

2) Download the zip file, unarchive, place the *.bit files into: C:\Matrix Games\John Tiller's Campaign Series\Mods\ALL - Forgotten Battles 2.0\East Front

3) Enable Forgotten Battles 2.0 using JSGME

Hi, I have a few questions regarding the Forgotten Battles 2.0 Mod.
1) When I go to install this mod using JSGME I get a warning message that says there a potential conflict with other mods that I currently have installed. Specifically, the EF & WF Unit Bases and the PanzerBlitz/PanzerLeader User interfaces. The message says that if I proceed with installing the Forgotten Battles Mod it, "may have adverse effects on your game". At this point I've declined to continue with the installation as I like using these other mods. I'm wondering if you've checked the Forgotten Battles mod for compatibility with the other mods or if I have to disable these others before proceeding with the installation?
2) Are the scenarios for the Forgotten Battles suitable for playing against the AI or are they H2H only?
3) What's the easiest way to find these scenarios in The Blitz database? I've tried searching for "Forgotten Battles" in the Campaign Series section but that only shows me 3 scenarios.

The message says that if I proceed with installing the Forgotten Battles Mod it, "may have adverse effects on your game". At this point I've declined to continue with the installation as I like using these other mods. I'm wondering if you've checked the Forgotten Battles mod for compatibility with the other mods or if I have to disable these others before proceeding with the installation?

This is actually a generic warning, that JSGME gives out when two mods touch the same files. Let me give you a silly example. There's two mods: Brown Water Hexes and Green Water Hexes. You first enable the Brown Water Hexes, as you want too see brown water instead of the stock blue. Then, you enable the Green Water Hexes, which will give you this warning as it changes the same terrain bitmap files as Brown Water Hexes. This, in effect then has an "adverse effect on your game", as although you also have Brown Water Hexes first enabled, you will only see Green Water Hexes as they are the last to go in. JSGME also greyed out Brown Water Hexes, so you have to take them out in reverse order. Last one to go in must be the first one out.

In your case: Forgotten Battles has its own versions of Main East Front and West Front Menus. So instead of the PB/PL Main Menus you'd see Forgotten Battle 2.0 menu instead.

If you absolutely want to (and who wouldn't!) see PB / PL user interface instead, disable all mods, then put in Forgotten Battles first, PB/PL UI next. PB/PL Mod having gone in last prevails, when same files are touched.

Hope this helped, it is a bit confusing when trying to explain, but hopefully obvious once you try them out

Check the scenario description. The scenarios I've created for Forgotten Battles are mostly for Human-vs-Human, in which case if you want to play vs AI I suggest you take the attacking side, and allow AI to be on defensive.

My scenarios are all under "Arctic Front" in EF. There are others as well. Here's a scenario introduction post from Blitz that for most part should be up to date: LINK

I hope you enjoy them!

I've downloaded one of the scenarios and unzipped it. I have 4 files (bitmap image, org, scn, & map). I've put all 4 files into the EF folder but I'm not seeing the scenario when I go to the scenario selection screen. Did I do something wrong?

Try in the scenario selection screen, hit the button next to scenario designer name, look for Battle Kat! They are very hard to find otherwise!! Hope this helps!!

I probably should use just one callsign in all the forums I participate in... I need to think about this.
