carll11 -> available scenarios not appearing (12/20/2019 10:07:42 PM)

I loaded .20, the pc installer, before trying to update I tired to start the game, took me to the splash select new game screen all I see are kasserine, tannenberg and titorial.

I selected the folder button and got a pop up; titled 'Directpory crate' and the message " the system cannot find path specified"......I clicked okay on that then got another pop up titles 'Directory Create' with the message of the path to the 'my documents toaw folder' ending in \Scenarios\Custom graphics..there is no scenario or custom graphics folder there...when I clicked ok the game crashed completely.

Hi - You need to patch the game to the latest patch v4.1.0.40 before running the game or it will crash.

Thx! Shadrach, I did and it appears to be operating....

I had the same thing so I tried to update.
But every time I get the error message:
Unable to download file.
An error occurred while trying to open an FTP file.

Ok I found out all the 200 scenario files are there now. In the PROGRAM FILES scenario folders. Weird, they didn't seem to be there before. Maybe the update worked with the error message.
But still I can only open game from the TUTORIAL file.
If I klick on the FOLDER file in the NEW GAME menu I get error message.

If I put a custom scenario in the TUTORIAL file I can play it.
But no acces to the other files through the FOLDER button in the NEW GAME menu.
I basically cannot change the DEFAULT FOLDER.

According to the TOAWLOG is seem to have Version 4,1,0,20. So I cannot upgrade somehow.
Is there another way to get updates?

You mean this download doesn't work?

The bug with the folders was fixed in the .21 patch but there's no need to install this, you are better off just getting .40 installed.
When we patched to .20 from older versions we had to follow instructions in this post:

If you install a clean base .20 there's no need for this, but you still need to patch to .40.

The shipped scenarios are now located in Program Files, and you can delete the old ones located in Documents, unless you have custom downloaded ones you want to keep.

I tried to upgrade through the game menu. That link didn't work.

Your link did the job. Now I'm Version 4,1,0,40.
And the folder button is working.

Hope this will get me through my employers 2 week WuFlu company shut down. [:D]

Yeah, the Updater thing's been broken for ages [8|]

Good to hear it's working again [:D]
