Ok, I want to do a second install of the game, but don't want to mess up my orginal install with changes. I want to install the new scen's with new AI scripts. How do I do this? I know it can be done, just I don't know how to do it. Can someone help me out here?

Thanks

2 ways:
1. copy the whole folder and make a new shortcut to the exe
2. Use JSGME

I used method #1 of the above methods to install Reluctant Admiral 4.2 and it's working perfectly so far. +1

What is JSGME?

I was thinking about putting it in a new folder.  So I would just right click and hit the shortcut button.  Is this right.

It's a generic mod enabler. So you can switch mods, maps, exe's etc. It is easy to use imho but given the size of HDD's these days it would be just easier to copy the folder. And yes, right click and copy the whole game folder and then go into that folder and find the exe and right click, send to, desktop. Then set your -switches in the properties of that shortcut.

Ok, I copied the folder moved it and all.  Now I get a message what says "unable to find PW".  I am sorry for my ignorance about computers.  How do I fix this issue?

Seems like the only time I can plan a decent invasion.

New scenarios and new AI scripts? I've been away from the game for a while taking care of IRL issues and the new stuff sounds interesting. Can anyone point me to what DOCUP is referring to?

Just install as many copies as you want. I run three different games with different mods and just named my shortcuts so I can distinguish between them.
