Hi all.
I am new to TOAW, trying to learn the basic features, and I started with the Korea tutorial. I would like to ask if there is a way to print (or copy into the clipboard) the text of the (quite long) scenario briefing, in order to better analyze it.
I tried directly from the program interface, but without success. Eventually is it possible to extract it from the scenery file?
Thanks.

You can do a scenario dump.

Thanks a lot. Being very new to the game, and not having used the Editor before, I had to understand what is a "scenario dump", but I just tried, and it actually works perfectly for my purposes.

As an alternative you can access the briefing when the scenario is loaded in the editor. Open the scenario in the editor and using the Edit tab pull down menu select Briefings > Scenario Briefing. Copy and paste into your preferred word program.
Note that when you write or edit a briefing, this is the place where you paste the new stuff into the scenario.

Regards

Hi rhinobones, thanks for your alternative method.
Up to now I avoided using the Editor, being already quite confused by the complex mechanics of the game, but I start to understand that actually it is quite useful to better understand the structure of the scenarios already present.
