The UK has a nice, fat, full strength corps sitting in Northern Iran where there is no war. (1944 Scenario.) I see no way to get it out of there and into action. It can't cross Iraq by land and there don't seem to be any sea options, at least I can't figure out how to get him out of the Gulf.

help?

Mark Clark,
You sure seem to be a glutton for punishment with the 1944 scenario. I think it's probably the worst to start on, or probably play at all.

Did you know that you can edit saved game files with OpenOffice? Did you know that in the landunits file in your saved game folder you can change a unit's location? All you have to do is figure out where you'd like that full strength corps in Tabriz, jot down the hex coordinates and then change the British corp's location coordinates to where you want "Scotty to beam it to".

No, I did not know this.  I don't even know what OpenOffice is, much less how to use it.

Rail transport to Bandar Shapur, load on transport, by sea to Egypt or wherever.

Mark Clark,
Open Office is a free version of Microsft Office pretty much, if you know how to use Excel then using the OpenOffice spreadsheet is a snap. I find it invaluable in overcoming those totally annoying 999 turn unit freezes.

I'd say gwgardener has a better solution that uses the in-game mechanics. From your initial complaint I thought that there wasn't a legit movement option for that lonely Brit unit in Iran.

I didn't think there was a legit move but I want to try your trick anyway because I want to save the US mech division that always gets massacred on turn one.

But that involves modding the scenario itself and not a save file, will that work?
