Years ago Jason had a format for new scenario submissions. I can't seem to find it. Any help? I remember it was fairly elaborate with what went where in the scenario description and in what order, and there was an agreed-upon code for how to communicate certain aspects of the scenario.

Are new scenarios still being accepted for version 1.05? Specifically scenarios for play against the computer?

Hey,

This is for MW, but you get the gist, same deal!!

Scenario Introduction Style Format
For the Modern Wars
April 20, 2011
Created by Jason Petho

This document serves as a general guideline for filling out the Scenario Information when creating a new scenario for the Modern Wars. Hopefully this will provide some consistency in the future introductions.

Scenario files naming convention:

Location_Year.bmp
Location_Year.org
Location_Year.map
Location_Year.scn

example:

As_Suez_1982.bmp
As_Suez_1982.org
As_Suez_1982.map
As_Suez_1982.scn

If there are more than one battles in the same location use the following:

As_Suez_1_1982.scn
As_Suez_2_1982.scn

If you have a H2H and AI version of the same scenario, use the following:

As_Suez_1982.scn <------- H2H
As_Suez_1982_AI.scn <---- AI

For example; Humbling of the Tank

Example of a formatted Scenario Introduction:

Humbling of the Tank
Jason Petho
6 October, 1973
[El Firdan, Suez Canal, Egypt]:[H2H][HIS][CSL]: At 1405 on 6 October, the Egyptian armies opened with a devastating artillery
barrage. Nearly 2,000 artillery and mortar pieces, 1,000 tanks, and 1,000 anti-tank guns pounded the Bar-Lev line. Within 15
minutes, the first wave of Egyptian infantry crossed the canal, by-passed the forts, and moved inland to establish defensive
positions. With the forts of the Bar-Lev line surrounded and under assault, the Israeli's readied their local tank forces
to immediately counterattack and relieve the garrisons. The tactical successes of the 1967 War gave the Israeli's overconfidence in
their tank heavy forces... leaving new lessons to be learned. [ALL][NONE][1.00]

DO NOT include website links in the description as they will cause the game to crash.
