M'kay, this is what is going into the 'Read Me First' doc on the website. It's only the 'how to' for downloading and installing the 'A' (stock map) versions. It's got every possible option/combination from a simple download and unzip to creating separate QuietChina scenarios. Is this too much? too complex? I'll do the 'B' scenarios and Ext Map stuff in a bit.

First choose which Scenario Type you wish to play: BabesLite or BigBabes.
Then choose which Map you wish to use: Stock Map or Extended Map.

.. BabesLite is the same in all executable respects, and with regard to all AI files, as stock scenarios 001 and 006 (and the corresponding Quiet China scenarios 007 and 009).
.. BigBabes is significantly different enough to make it unplayable against an Allied AI and a bit dicey, but still feasible, against a Japanese AI. There are many new squad and unit features that make it exciting for human play, but the AI does not know about these things so it doesn’t use them.

.. BabesLite and BigBabes ‘A’ scenarios are played on the Stock Map.
.. BabesLite and BigBabes ‘B’ scenarios are played on the Extended Map.

IF YOU WANT TO PLAY A BABESLITE ‘A’ SCENARIO:
1) Download
.. BabesLite_AEScen026_A_v11.zip, or
.. BabesLite_AEScen027_A_v11.zip, or both
And unzip them into the game’s SCEN folder.

2) Then EITHER download the AI files you want to use
.. Scen026_AI_Files.zip, or
.. Scen027_AI_Files.zip, or both
And unzip them into the game’s SCEN folder.

3) OR create a set of Scen026 (or Scen027) AI files
Scen026 can use the same AI files as Scen001;
Scen027 can use the same AI files as Scen006;

3a) If you downloaded Scen026;
.. Copy the Scen001 AI files (the ones beginning with aei001) into an empty folder;
.. Renumber from 001 to 026 (i.e., change aei001-01.dat to aei026-01.dat, etc..);
.. Move the renumbered files into the game’s SCEN folder
3b) If you downloaded Scen027;
.. Copy the Scen006 AI files (the ones beginning with aei006) into an empty folder;
.. Renumber from 006 to 027 (i.e., change aei006-01.dat to aei027-01.dat, etc..);
.. Move the renumbered files into the game’s SCEN folder
3c) If you downloaded Scen026 and Scen027, then do both 3a) and 3b)

4) For a QuietChina version of Scen026 or Scen027, EITHER download the QC AI files
.. Scen026_QuietChina_AI_Files.zip, or
.. Scen027_QuietChina_AI_Files.zip, or both
But do NOT unzip into the game’s SCEN folder; INSTEAD

4a) If you wish a QuietChina version of Scen026;
.. Open Scen026 with the editor;
.. from File menu, select Save Scenario As..
.. Choose an empty slot, suggest 036;
.. Rename from ‘none’ to QuietChinaVersion of Scen026 Stock Map
.. Load/Save and exit editor;
.. Unzip the Scen026_QuietChina_AI_Files.zip into an empty folder;
.. Renumber from 026 to 036 (i.e., change aei026-01.dat to aei036-01.dat, etc..);
.. Move the renumbered files into the game’s SCEN folder
4b) If you wish a QuietChina version of Scen027;
.. Open Scen027 with the editor;
.. from File menu, select Save Scenario As..
.. Choose an empty slot, suggest 037;
.. Rename from ‘none’ to QuietChinaVersion of Scen027 Stock Map
.. Load/Save and exit editor;
.. Unzip the Scen027_QuietChina_AI_Files.zip into an empty folder;
.. Renumber from 027 to 037 (i.e., change aei027-01.dat to aei037-01.dat, etc..);
.. Move the renumbered files into the game’s SCEN folder
4c) If you wish a QuietChina version of both Scen026 and Scen027, then do both 4a) and 4b)

5) OR create a set of QuietChina AI files
Scen026 can use the same QuietChina AI files as Scen007;
Scen027 can use the same QuietChina AI files as Scen009;

5a) If you downloaded Scen026;
.. Open, Resave to Scen036 and Rename as described in 4a), above

.. Move the renumbered files into the game’s SCEN folder
5c) If you wish a QuietChina version of both Scen026 and Scen027, then do both 5a) and 5b)

IF YOU WANT TO PLAY A BIGBABES ‘A’ SCENARIO:
1) Download
.. BigBabes_A_AEScen028_v08.zip, or
.. BigBabes_A_AEScen029_v08.zip, or both
And unzip them into the game’s SCEN folder.

2) Then create a set of Scen028 (or Scen029) AI files
Scen028 can use the same AI files as Scen001;
Scen029 can use the same AI files as Scen006;

2a) If you downloaded Scen028;
.. Copy the Scen001 AI files (the ones beginning with aei001) into an empty folder;

Hi JWE, Didn't earlier versions of DaBigBabes have a few additional pieces of ship art?? Are these still relevant??

One might request a Sticky for this, since it works so well, and covers other issues as well.

Just wanted to mention that the Babes ship art set is now included in the ship art in 1106i. If you have installed 1106i you no longer need to add the Babes art files.
