From: Oslo, Norway
When I submitted the scenario to Matrix for inclusion on the distribution disk, it was named "Campaign for South Vietnam" (which was the original name under CoW). Matrix initially just added the start year, "1965", so it would conform to their naming convention. Somewhere along the way someone added "-75". It wasn't me.
Why that still works, I couldn't tell you. I have noticed a little wierdness with scenario names. Simply renaming the filename does not always work. You have to open the scenario in the editor and Save As to the new filename. So there may be a hidden link embedded in the scenario data that the program looks to, separate (or in addition) to the filename.
Thanks for the information! Yeah, I suspect there might be some hidden data containing the scenario name.
Or this might be a quirk from how the game handles scenario versions, maybe it thinks the "1965..." part is a version number. But then that would apply to a lot of other scenarios as well.
By the way does anyone have the old default scene that ships with TOAW4 in the latest patch? I think this is not the same as the 5.1 version and I'd like to compare them. And can't be bothered to do a full reinstall just to dig out the one scenario
EDIT: Never mind, I'm able to just install the Steam version and dig the old version from there.
