For now, I'd suggest you open the Battle Generated generated scenario file (*.SCN) with Scenario Editor, and make the changes manually.

Here's a couple of How-to Modder guides regarding battle generator:

  • Dev Diary #2: Having fun with Battle Generator
  • Dev Diary #3: Adding new units with –X (no encryption) option


    I've put together an index of all Developer Diaries and Modding Guides at CS Middle East forum, here:

    Yes. The legacy AI as with JTCS will just blindly go for the objectives. So if you move them about, AI should just dynamically go after where they are next. I have not tried this in middle of a game, but if you opt to modify the scenario file (you can touch the generated map file as well!), the AI should have its targets set from the go.

    Good luck! Let us know how this worked

    If I understood your question correctly, you would do these steps on following order:

    1. Generate the battle with Battle Generator
    2. Observe the new random*.scn files at game folder
    3. Open the latest one with Scenario editor, make the edits, save it.

    Does that work for you?

    You have to open the Random*.scn file. That is what is generated for your randomly made scenario

    The BTL file you are saving is just the game play save file.

    You can indeed move the objectives.

    Click on a Hex in the scenario editor and then click on the Objective Flag

    Adjust the owner (soviet, german, whatever)

    And add a value (10 or 100 or 250) or whatever you wish.

    Press OK

    Click on an EXISTING objective hex that you want to remove

    Adjust the owner to No Nation

    Change the value to 0.

    Voila, you moved the objective hex.

    i discovered there is squad battle series and i want to ask if easy battle editing posible as campaign series
    tactical level combat with turn based will be more enjoyable but i like games
    that has replayability
