Larry, it looks like from an ongoing scenario the F11 hotkey saves equipment files (.eqp and .nqp) to the C:\Users\...\Documents\My Games\The Operational Art of War IV folder.
Not sure yet what, if anything, you can do with these files other than review them.
Also, you probably already know this, but you can also use the SHFT-CTRL-F4 keys to save each side's OOB during an ongoing scenario, with these OOBs showing current losses, etc. The problem is that it is not clear what, if anything, you can do with these files either.
For instance, in the scenario editor, if you go into the Force Editor and select "Open OOB" from the menu, it asks for an .ool file, not an .oob file. But if you go to the Force Editor and press the F5 key, it asks for an .oob file. But I have had two problems when I try to load an .oob file into a scenario:
1) when starting from a new scenario, sometimes I get an error "Parent Unit is invalid. Check the log for details." I have not been able to find the relevant log, but if I press OK for each of these errors (one for every unit in the OOB), the OOB actually seems to work; or
2) when starting from a new scenario, with some .oob files, they just don't work, nothing happens when I try to load them.
Trying to load the .oob file into the scenario from which it was extracted is even worse---every time I have tried it, the program hangs.
Hey there 76mm dude. Thanks for your observations. They sound like bugs, to me all of them. I've never heard of an OOL file and I've never started from a new scenario so of course I wouldn't have found what you've found....good job. They both sound like there's something seriously wrong. If I were you I'd cut and paste this report into the tech help section and see if the DEV can look into it.
A saved game file or a scenario file might help out the process. I hope there's a fix for this because you and I can't create a new scenario with what we've got.
