First, thank you so much for what you're doing Larry, it was really needed
+1 for adding the Tutorial scenarios by Oberst Klink
You're welcome. It's mainly the brainchild of Tamas and I thought it was a pretty good idea.
I'll add the tutorials when I get the go ahead. I usually know when a scenario is ready
because the arthor publishes a link to the scenario file. That's all I need. A link
to the file.
If it can help, I made an .ods file filled with the infos gathered from the original post to ease the sorting of informations. I've made that only for help, you can use it if you want, the way you want, the idea is to have a tool to more easily have a better view of all the scenarios, depending of the criteria(s) you want :)
To open the file you first have to extract it thanks to 7-zip : http://www.7-zip.org/
And to be able to view and edit it, you need Libreoffice : https://www.libreoffice.org/
I think it would be nice to add an "author" column, because I realized that uploaders weren't always authors of the scenarios.
If I can find the time (& motivation : I would like to play the game too, and free time isn't always here :D), I'll try to do it, but I'm not sure, so... like I said, do what you want with the file if you want
If I've made some mistake (I'm an absolute newcomer in TOAW), I'm very sorry and feel free to correct me, I'll try to correct file as soon as possible.
There's a "Last updated" column : date format is french, but I can change it easily. The idea of this column is to have the date of the last updated scenarios in bold for concerned scenarios, dates of scenarios updated previously in not bold, and no date for scenarios updated before. This way you see fast what has changed in the list.
I've made a "Now officially included" for scenarios who will be included in the game with patches, this way you'll know if they're officially included (obvious) and more important if it's really the same version who is available in the forum.
I've created filters in 4 columns : you can select the criteria you want.
For people not knowing how it works : click on the arrow going down who is aside the title of the column you want to select criteria, you'll see all criteria you can choose, simply check/uncheck what you want (I'll make a screenshot to show in my next post). After creating a filter for one column, you can modify the filter in one of the other columns two. For example, this way, you can only see PO scenarios uploaded by sPzAbt653.
***end of explanations***
But the game would really needs an official "scenario hub" were all this kind of infos would be gathered, updated continuously, and easily "manipulable" (= being able to sort/filter things depending of criteria the player want), I especially think for the long-term of the game.
That's all :)
I can't sprekanze French and I don't want Liebrre Office on my machine and so if you would do
me a really bid favor and keep up the good work and use your tool to check up on me. I'd like
to keep the list helpful and accurate and another pair of eyes will only help.
PS : oh by the way : are there really two Arnhem scenarios ? I found only one in the links provided for Arnhem & Arnhem, for Beginners ?
Good catch. I deleted one of them.
