I try to understand the script/events mechanism but so far I am a little bit confused by all the files (Unit.txt, decision.txt ect...) are they linked together?

Is there any tutorial?

For example as playing the Axis side how can I generate by script a garnison unit in warsaw, lets say few weeks after the fall of Poland?

thanks for your inputs

Christophe

I haven't gotten into the scripting yet as I am still working on my first map. But if it is anything like SC2, it will all be .txt files. I would look at an existing script in one of the campaigns, that might help a little. Sorry cant come up with more for you.

Hi Sipres

Have you taken a look at part 2 of the Manual on Designing your own Campaigns as it does contains details on the scripts?

I'd also recommend opening up some of the script files and taking a look at the descriptions at the top, and actual scripts used in the game that will appear below them in the file.

Hi, I've written a new decision and added it to \Campaigns\_1939 Storm over Europe\Scripts\Events\Decision.txt however it does not fire. Do I need to add the event name (the number - DE 674) in another files? Dies the event name (number) need to be sequential? My event does not appear within in-game scripts. Thanks.

I know one thing... You need to make sure that the DE number doesn't exist before you assign it. Can not have two numbers the same.

Yep check that.

I guess I should update \Templates\Events\Decision.txt as well? Same decision file exists there by the looks of it. I'll try that anyways. <-- Nope that's an empty file.

Check this from page 114, 2.1.4 :
You cannot save over a default campaign, instead you will have to use Save As and give it a new name.
So, open the default campaign, save it as a new name, THEN add you DE to your newly named campaign, and it should work.
It should look like this, where my campaign name is '653H' [W7 pictured] :

Once you've done File -> Save As and given your campaign a new name, you'll need to Update the scripts. It should ask you to do this during the save process.

Thanks everyone. I understand now to load the editor, load the 1939 Campaign, save as XXX, and then edit decisions.
