thanks. i clicked on setup, but i dont see where it is installing...after a while a window appears asking for loading .gam file.

(until here is normal?)

then, I upload a file and error pops up

I forgot to say that you can install it anywhere; it should install wherever you put the file.

It is normal for it to ask for a *.gam file--it needs an xml scenario file to work with.

I will look again at the errors from those posts, I though I had fixed them. Which scenario did you try to open? I've only gotten the "invalid character" error in a scenario that had SS runes in the unit names, which are not valid characters in xml. Not sure yet how to fix that... If possible, please try with another scenario.

In general, if you encounter a problem with a scenario, please identify it, and if it is not a stock scenario that came with the game, send it to me if possible.

I should also add that all of the testing I do is with finished scenarios--the ones provided with the game--because I don't have any unfinished scenarios. It is very possible that unfinished scenarios raise different problems, so if you are having problems with an unfinished scenario, send it to me if possible and I will try to fix it--if I can't replicate a problem then I can't fix it.

I will look at the D21 scenario today, see if I encounter problems.

But I don't understand what problem you are having with the setup file? It sounds like it installed if it is asking for a *.gam file?

it seems it keeps in memory the last uploaded scenario. now i click setup and previously uploaded fulda76 and it opens without errors.
However, the window is still cut at the bottom and button letters are cut by the middle or less.

in fulda76, formations IDs are grey so they cannot be changed. Then, how can i insert a Div inside an Army formation, so thee division is highlighted in the same hierarchy when selecting the army HQ?

Transfer (Drag-and-Drop) Unit within Tree: Select unit in treeview, left click on unit and drag to formation to which it should be transferred, release mouse button. It will become the last unit in the selected formation.

im trying to drag, left click and move, but it is not trasnferred. :(

ok, i could drag "units" to formations, it works perfectly. The problem is that if I want to drag a division, which is defined as formation, inside an Army which is also a formation.

maybe changing unit name such as 276th Div -> 267th Div 8th Amy could work to give OOB flavour rather than actually redefining formation, what do yu think?

still some WWII German scenarios, including D21 do not open, because of runes maybe.

OK, hard to be completely sure without a screenshot, but I think I understand what you mean. I've already made a change which will hopefully fix this...

No, you can select a *.gam file from anywhere.

I need to look at this, figure out what the mysterious character is...

As mentioned above, have already attempted some fixes, will be in the next version released.

Yes, once you select a *.gam file, TOAWxml keeps using it until you select a new file or it can no longer find the original file (deleted, etc.).

Sorry, don't understand. You cannot change Unit IDs because they are used by the game to track unit info. If you change a unit ID it will almost certainly break the scenario.

I don't know what you are trying to drag to where...see next point.

There are four hierarchical levels in TOAW: Force=>Formations=>Units=>Equipment. Those are all the levels that there are, and I can't add more. And each level has a different data structure.

So you can only transfer units so that they stay at the same level. In other words, if a scenario has the following levels: Army=>Corps=>Divisions=>Equipment, you can transfer divisions to a different corps, or equipment to a different division.

In a scenario with the indicated hierarchy, you cannot transfer a corps, because there is only one Army and so no where to transfer it to. You also cannot transfer equipment to a corps, or a division to the Army, because such transfers would not be at the same level.

I will look at D21, but it would be helpful to have names of other scenarios that don't open, so that I can take a look.
