Hi im sorry to bother you but some of my german infantry on the initial turn have a piece of equipment i dont remember them having before, called spare equipment, is this correct? These units, every time i try to move them alert me that they are a FIXED UNIT, Abandon all fixed weapons to move? with a yes or no selection. At that point i select yes, move, and they promptly do the same thing again next turn...

Any thoughts I dont remember this issue on the early versions of directive 21. Any guidance would be a great help

The presence of "spare equipment" may be a symptom that you're using the wrong equipment file. I have attached here below the EQP and NQP files for D21. Run this scenario through the editor and save it with the same name and the problem should go away with the correct EQP and NQP files. Lemme know if it doesn't help.

Ok i placed your .eqp and .NQP files into the graphics override folder under directive 21 (same name as scenario) then loaded it into the editor which alerted me that I have the wrong .EQP files for the scenario, I hit ok, then saved the scenario to the same name, and loaded a fresh game of D21 back up. and still have spare equipment... I dont quite understand how this issue is occurring.

Okay....we've exceeded the extend of my knowledge. I'm at a loss as to the problemo. Can you disband that unit?

Its fixed larry! You actually helped me think about it, and i was playing around in my folders, and my game from the original release! still had old folders it was referencing on my computer. I deleted those folders from 2017, in a place called my games, and boom, loaded up the new version of scenario and EQP and NQP files no problem. Thank you for the assist!

A couple of questions:

1) The files in your attachment seem to be older than those in the original post, any reason why you use these?

2) Regarding the sub folder that contains the equipment files (in the in the original download by TPOO) where do i place this folder? Only i have tried various locations and i still get an error message about old equipment files when i load the scenario in the editor?

Many thanks

They may be older files but they may contain the same info that the newer files contain. Use the newer files in any case. Reguarding the sub folder that contains the equipment files....place that bad boy in the Graphics Override folder.

The data in the equipment file(s) are stored in the SCE file now so to associate the files with the scenario you must load the scenario in the editor and then save it with the same name and when the scenario gets written all the equipment file info is written too. That way there's no need for an equipment file unless you're editing the scenario.

so i save the scenario even when it says there is an error and that corrects the error and all is good - i can then delete the equipment folder as its no longer needed

You are 100% correct, except that you may want to keep the equipment files just for giggles.

All the way to 1945, yes, and the balancing isn't adjusted properly for a
person to play the Soviet side. There's no AI tracks for the Axis side
is my understanding so it's pretty much designed for the human to play
the Axis side.
