Tamas, Bob

I have updated all fourteen of my scenarios that originally appeared in the initial TOAWIV launch. Unfortunately, these updates did not make it to 4.1.0.20. (Tomas, Bob, et al had bigger fishes to fry.)

How can I update these scenarios in 4.1.0.20? (Destruction of Army Group Center, Operation Overlord 1944, Road to Moscow series, etc. Most minor, a few major)

If I move a folder "Updated Scenarios" into TOAW IV Steam--->Scenarios will it appear just on my PC or will it appear globally?

4.1.0.20 is working great on my PC and Steam.

Thanks again, Tamas, Bob, Steve, Larry, and all other contributors,
RAK

I installed this new version, and when I go to the choose language menu and select the spanish language, a message appears saying "unexpected token found at line 3135, column 49" and the game exits to windows.
I examined the file and is corrupted.
This was solved in the previous v4.1.0.4 patch, but again this old issue appears in this new version, making it impossible to play with the Spanish version.

Downloaded the new version ok, installed it ok, but now I have only three scenarios (Kasserine, Tannenberg, tutorial). When I go to "folders" I get an error (The system cannot find the path specified). When I clink ok on that, I get "Directory Create" error and the game crashes. When I look in my Docs/My Games/Toaw4, there are no scenarios.

Help


It's not a directory error. You have to create the specified directory....GP


I always back up my TOAW files before doing something akin to what has to be done here. But, everyone should do that, not just me. After reading these posts it causes concern. If someone has to create this folder manually then it begs the question, what has happened to the files that used to be there? I have TOAW on Steam so I didn't bother with this update though i will sometime in the future.

I uninstalled it, as required; and as usual (WAD), the scenario nd other folders were still there. Installed the new packaged; all fine. Even my modified older folders were there. So far, no issues here.

Klink, Oberst

Once the files are created as requested the scenarios are good to go. It's a pain in the A## but it is what it is....GP

For the steam version, does it update automatically to this latest version? Or do I have to uninstall and reinstall the steam version?

I downloaded this game on Steam. I don't remember registering the game, or receiving a serial number. Uninstalled and reinstalled on Steam and got the same directory error. Please help me get this game back. Thanks.

I have this on Steam. It was updated automatically to 4.1.0.20 and I have no problems with it. What is 'the same directory error' that you mention? When you install the game the registration number shows up in a window for you to copy.

@GP...he can't post pictures, he has only one post.

Does any new scenarios go into the Matrix folder or the My documents folder where I copied all of the scenarios to get the game working after .20 patch?

Thx

I was about to download and install this new version, but after reading two pages of problems from players just 4 days after 4.1.0.20's release, I decided to forego for now.
Any possibility for a relook at the whole thing to make it more USERFRIENDLY?
I really enjoy TOAW IV and therefore hesitate to fiddle around with its installation and run the risk of doing permanent damage requiring hours of uncertain toil to set straight again.

Hi Everyone,

Apologies for the missing folder issue. It's a rather embarassing error, the game's EXE wants to do what we specifically didn't want it to do - copying the default scenarios to My Games. But, it tries to do so without creating the main Scenarios folder... So if you uninstalled the previous version like I asked you to do and you had no custom scenarios in there, the uninstaller did it's job and did not leave the Scenarios folder in place, but then that's messed up the .20 build.

Anyways, we are working hard to roll out a patch for you that fixes this.

In the meantime, you can manually fix it for your build this way:


1. Go to Documents, then My Games, and then to The Operational Art of War IV folder
2. Create a new folder called "Scenarios" You can leave it empty.

We are sorry for the trouble!

When i upload photo, it says ‘jpeg not supported.’ Anyway, the exact error message is: ‘Directory Create: The system cannot find the path specified.’

The game was working just fine until this error came up. It happened on its own, without me doing anything. Maybe Steam auto-updated a bad file?

Now, when i start a new game, It’ll take me to the WW1 scenarios, which is the last directory i had open before the game malfunctioned. I can access those. If i try to access the other scenarios, I get the above error.

Yes this is the error that got into this version unfortunately. Please see how to manually fix it while waiting for our patch, in my post just above yours.
