Sorry Bob if I bother you, but I meet a SNAFU, here - and I fear that it is because I'm a bit thick.
[I do have TOAW IV installed under d:\The Operational Art of War IV, and the c:\users\... directory properly created.]
I Initially I worked on the "Users" folders on C:\ I placed the files under the "Users" folder in your zip (and, yes, I have noticed that your name, after "Users" is Robert while mine is "Romano", so I do not make this mistake. ) This ends up with placing the "TOAW IV Scenarios" and the "WW II - Mediterranean" folders in the "Scenarios" folder. When I do this, my PC asks me if I want to override the old files and I said "yes" - so I must be doing something right.
I then have to place the other files in the second directory found in the .zip ("Program Files (x86)\...\Campaign For North Africa 40-43 v.11.0"). I tried to place them both on the C:\users\... and on my D:\ main installation - (never at the same time: either all on C:\ or all on D:\ ). Of course in both attempts I extract the "Campaign For North Africa 40-43 v.11.0" and override the directory with the same name)
And here come the SNAFU: no matter what I do, when I relaunch the game, in both cases I end up with the possibility to play either via PBEM or face to face - nothing else. Basically, the opportunity to choose play vs. the AI disappears.
The game is a clean install, upgraded to .23, with no mods or other extraneous elements.
Can you take my hand help me with a more step-by-step approach? I scourged this sub-forum (including the pinned posts) and fumbled around the program for the best part of last evening like if I was playing sudoku - or with a Rubic's Cube but to no avail. I really don't know what I'm doing wrong (it is funny to think that I can play TOAW IV but then I'm stuck when I want to upgrade a scenario...) However, this is also the first time that I to try to install/upgrade a scenario, so maybe there is something basic I'm missing.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Edited for clarity.
