I would like to take a look at two old scenarios in the editor; Operation Ironclad and Operation Stream Line Jane.
I get a repeating unit error for all units in the scenario. Then TOAW crashes.
Any way to open these scenarios?

I still have the original volume 1, installed it but it won't open the scenarios.
My guess is that they were created in the later 'Century of Warfare' (or whatever it was called.

Thanks
Erik

I vaguely recall, from another site (the repository site)

that, for an ACoW scene, first open that in the scene editor for TOAWIII (and then save that as a TOAWIII file)
and then open it again in the editor in TOAWIV, and save it there again under TOAWIV.

There was some kind of procedure for that, not sure of the details....
but I will bet you dollars to donuts,
that Silvanski can tell you waht's up with that.

Hoping he will chime in on this, this is something I've been curious about what with trying to build the Encyclopedia.

Thanks for the help.
Unfortunately, TOAW III can't open the scenarios either.
I've attached the scenarios here if anyone else will try their luck.

In my huge TOAW Folder, I have something called the 'TOAW3_LegacyPack_V01-42'. I don't know where I got it, but it has a shoebooty full of old scenarios that work in IV

Any possibility of sharing that pack?

It's 40mb. I was hoping someone else would see the mention of it and post the link. Let's give it a day or two and if nothing comes forth I'll see if I can post it on Dropbox.

I seem to remember downloading a bunch of those scenarios and doing something alphabetical with them: I've uploaded them
to a file server and by all means be my guest.
