I purchase every set of scenarios that CMANO puts out, even though I rarely ever get around to actually playing them. From what I can tell (remember), in the beginning, most scenarios rarely had any ini files associated with them. I simply loaded the scenario and started playing the game. As time passed, I realize that scenarios needed to be updated, so I "figured" that that was the reason that ini files were created. It was just a means of updating the scenario.
I purchased Sands and Silent Service when they came out and just started messing around with them. Even though I purchased them on Day 1, I noticed that they already had ini files for almost every scenario ready to be loaded. Is this the new norm? If so, then I suppose that I should ALWAYS check to see if the scenario has an ini file available before starting the scenario.
Are ini files the exception or the rule now? If they are the rule, I have never seen any new scenarios come out with a message that instructs the game player to "make sure that you check to see if an ini file is available before playing." Perhaps it's there and I simply overlook it because I have been playing the game for so long.
It's no big deal, but I just wanted to hear some feedback from others about when, and how often, everyone checks for ini file availability.
Thanks for your time.
