I would do this...

Create a 2nd folder called WarPlanBeta in the same directory as the WarPlan 7.2
COPY all the files NOT in the beta download to this location.
Put all the beta files in this new location
Run it from there.

This way it doesn't interfere with the current Unity 2017 build 100072

Ok

But they will both use the same Documents folder for scenarios, right ?

No the docs are in the original. But that doesn't matter. You would also have to make a shortcut for it.

It's only because I upgraded the engine and if something goes wrong I am trying to save people from doing a fresh reinstall.

Okay so I must be stupid. Which directory I must copy? Is it the entire game directory? And, then I am patching it with the beta patch?

Yes, you copy the entire Warplan directory (usually under MatrixGames). I renamed it to WarPlanBeta. Then you patch that with the gamedata patch. Unfortunately, the scenarios cannot be copied and used that I know of - a nice feature might be to allow a config override to where the scenarios are to allow both beta and release.

Make sense?

Just override the current mygames directory with the scenarios. You can always download back the old ones.

Saved games have all the data included in them. You don't need the scenarios.

Just a challenge if you want to keep the release version for starting official games but still want to test the beta to provide feedback. Manageable, but could be easier.
