So I bought TOAW 3 (again) because my old computer is put away and I could not find the disk... $25 no biggie.

I bought it because I was interested (again) in making some really unique maps and scenarios. Mainly I wanted to make a Sierra Leone Civil War scenario spanning the time period when the NPRC hired mercenaries (Executive Outcomes) to fight the RUF rebels.

The problem I am encountering in the forces design is I cannot select the unit sizes, icon colors, etc. I click and nothing happens. I am stuck at the default colors and "squad" size units.

UGH!

Is this a broken game? I installed the latest patch. But still nothing.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Welcome aboard (again..)!

Did you actually create a unit or did you try to change unit size indicator and counter color with an empty unit? Because changing this only works with a real unit, not with the empty template.

OK, let's gather more information from you 'ole chap:

a) Windows version
b) What exactly ain't work where, how, etc. at the editor?
c) Screenshots
d) Latest official TOAW III is 3.4.202, that's installed, aye?

You have to create the scenario step by step, e.g. the forces, formations, etc. Now, if you got the TO&E and OOB already, you can use Notepad++ or Andy's TOAW III Editor. I suspecthowever the following:

You have to assign equipment first BEFORE you can edit, change, modify the size, icon, name of the unit ;)So, go to the force editor and assign let's say any kinda of equipment to the 1st cadre; then you can change the lot :)

Ahh crap that worked. Was it always that way? I have not worked in TOAW in years. At least spending the cash again was not a waste... LOL.

Here's a screenie of what I am going to make... Sierra Leone at 5km per hex.

I may change the scale up a bit... but the Civil War there was fought with small units, often unconventional.

Thanks also Oberst_Klink - and I will look for the Andy's Toaw Editor.

My PC is now a Windows 7 system... haven't gone to Win 8 yet... I suspect that by the time TOAW 4 comes along we will be at Win 9... or 10. Hopefully not.
