I was having problems with my editor recently, so I contacted Matrix and re-downloaded the game. I left my old game in place (everything works but the editor), and put the new download into a separate folder. The idea was to use one installation for PBEM, and the other for tinkering with the editor and for running sandbox tests. The new install seems to have worked - the game runs like it's supposed to. Both installations are patched up to one of the latest betas (188.8.131.52d) and should be the same. My problem is that they are not. In the latest download, I have access to only 6 scenarios, not the full spread. In the latest download, garrison requirements in China and elsewhere are either different or are missing completely, and starting ground force TOEs don't seem to be exactly the same either. I double checked (triple checked, actually) that I loaded the same scenario (1) for both games and that I am comparing apples to aples. Not sure quite what to make of this - I've run several turns with the new download and it otherwise behaves like it's supposed to. My question is, did I perhaps get an old or defective copy when I re-downloaded, or have a lot of things changed within the scenarios themselves over the past two years - meaning the new download is actually correct?
