There is a defect with how pre 4.1.0.20 scenarios were converted to TOAW IV 4.1.0.21.

This scenario states that it was converted to TOAW IV, but when you unzip and load it into the game it shows the following:

Objective: Bizerte! (Pre 4.1.0.21 conversion)


Notice that the following scenario parameters are wrong:

No Force A vs Force B
Complexity: 0.00 Map: 1x1
Dates: AM 2/2/1940 - AM 2/2/1940
2.5 km , 12 hours/turns
Units: 0/0 , Events 0

After I have opened that file in the editor and saved it (this is on version 4.1.0.21) I see this which is correct:

Objective: Bizerte! (Post 4.1.0.21 conversion)


Same thing with this scenario:

Operation Bagration (to Berlin) (Pre 4.1.0.21 conversion):


Operation Bagration (to Berlin) (Post 4.1.0.21 conversion):


Notice now both scenarios have the correct information along with the forces for both sides.

So either the conversions were incomplete, or this defect existed in 4.1.0.20 and prior.

Suggestion to reduce confusion on which scenarios are really converted and which are not someone should open up all the old scenarios and really convert them with 4.1.0.21.

Many scenarios were converted to TOAWIV prior to release. I'm not aware if all of them were converted to TOAWIV 4.1.0.21. Likely not since that is a volunteer effort and would require a lot of time and I've not seen anyone on the Beta team mention further conversion to the newer version. I'll make a test TOAWIII scenario and see how it all pans out with conversions. All of the complexity stuff is fairly new.

The scenarios converted to TOAWIV release version have not been updated to .21 so the new complexity information will not be displayed unless someone does a release to .21 conversion. So while the scenarios have indeed been updated to TOAWIV release they have not been converted to TOAWIV version .21. Not a defect. Maybe you could volunteer to help convert them and pass them on to Bob?

If you would find a Bob post and click on his name you can send him a pm. This could end up quite a time killer Zovs so be sure you are up for it.

Wait a minute! Bob is only responsible for the scenarios that ship with the game. And all of those have been converted already:

I don't want a bunch of crap TOAW I scenarios landing in my inbox.

Perhaps you can convert them for your own use and then post your results in Dropbox or something similar for others to download?

McBride expressly forbade us to use his scenarios in any way. And he's real touchy about it.
