Are they in the middle_east/mods/middle_east_102_cumulative/graphics folder?

They are in mine, so just want to double check.

Yes, bad download, you're missing a lot of goodies. Most of it, really.

When I select mausmans mod, it pops up a warning that the terrain has already been modified and may adversely affect the game, I suppose it may be best to go without and see the new terrain then come back for the mod , which further enhances the 3D view(?)

DLed and installed perfectly.

very nicethe detail is very crisp Kudos to the graphics team....I'll wait for someone else to install mausmans mod and see what they think, if I read correctly his mod is primarily for 3D view? so far really great job.

Jason, the anti-tank ditches are excellent!And the crests are an answer to the age old hull down issue I presume....A+++

Hello Carl11,

Sorry, just spotted this. It is actually OK to install the mausman mod on top of the 1.02 OPEN BETA. The JSGME mod tool gives a warning, as mausman mod changes some base files that were updated by the 1.02 OPEN BETA "mod".

This sometimes happens as one mod is installed on top of another. There should be no issues here, and the JSGME tool ensures the mods are deactivated using the correct reverse order, via greying out earlier mods in place. For instance, should you activate mousman mod, the 1.02 OPEN BETA is greyed out, and you again need to deactive mausman before you can deactivate 1.02, should you want to do so.

Hope I am making sense here.

Keeping in mind I've only played some smaller scenarios; so far the only issues I'm having are with some highlight filters.

I can't seem to get 'save MP to unload' to work unless I display 'maximum movement' first. Not a big issue as I'm used to it but this may not be WAD.

Thanks jack54, is that when using hot keys or clicking the toolbar? Or both?

I may be misinterpreting the situation. I notice the tooltip for 'save mp for unloading' does not mention highlighting.

If I highlight max move(h)then either the button or 'tool tip' work fine. I was expecting a highlight after pressing 'save MP for unload'

Ah, gotcha! That's right, no highlighting, just a small wheel icon with a diskette (remember them!) in the unit icon in the Unit Infobox to indicate the particular unit cannot use action points beyond the amount required for loading.

Sorry browsing with my phone here

Those toolbar functions that highlight a unit should in the latest 1.02 toolbar have a red highlight tint around the icon graphics.

No worries Jack LIV! Better to have a dozen false alarms and then catch the real bugger, than to have nothing at all

Redownload and install at your leisure.

This will be the last BETA before it gets shipped to Matrix/Slitherine. If you notice anything over the next few days, please let us know ASAP!
