Maybe I'm a total newbie here, but the way the Battles for Greece got installed confused me for some time before I figured it out.

At the end of installation, it said I would have a Battles for Greece folder in my Start Menu and a desktop shortcut. Nope, no folder, no shortcut. So I looked in my actual BFTB folder, since it does install into that folder. No Battles for Greece shortcuts too.

Starting the BFTB Game Menu did show a PLAY Battles for Greece option, so I clicked on it only to be brought with the standard BFTB splash screen. I was thinking something really went wrong here.

It's only after clicking on New Game in BFTB that I suddenly realized I had the option at the top to switch between BFTB Scenarios and Greek Scenarios... Voilà!

I'm rolling now and can't wait for the Med Pack with the Crete and North African scenarios to get out!

Maybe then you can finally finish that Storm Over Iraklion AAR...

The desktop shortcuts do seem to be missing. I should have caught this while testing the installer, it could be a bit confusing for the customer. But the game runs fine from the Windows Start menu.

I actually installed the HTTR pack over the Greek pack and now the BFTB/Matrix Game menu has the Market Garden graphics instead of the Greek graphics.

It would be best if the Game Menus that come with the installers show you all the CO modules installed, or just say "Command Ops".

Oh, and the original COTA runs fine on my Windows 7 computer...

No new icons for Battles for Greece, but I still get the new game with the old HTTR short cut.

Thanks for reminding me, that remains unchecked on my to do list since a few years !!!

At this point, I guess I'd better start over the AAR with the new engine
