CS scenario made on windows 7 machine not working on Windows 10 machine

Post by borsky »

I've not played CS in a few years, and had the matrix version on my old windows 7 machine. A few days ago I had a burst of nostalgia and decided to get back into it, so I bought a CS matrix game for my windows 10 machine, and everything works fine.

The only issue is the custom scenario I created on the windows 7 version of the game does not seem to work on the new windows 10 version of the game. I copied the scenario files from my windows 7 machine and pasted them into the CS EF folder on the windows 10 machine. But when I try to start this custom scenario, the turns are weirdly listed as 0 and there's an "Error reading scenario file" message.

Does anyone know why this happens or if there's a workaround for this? Any info is appreciated - thank you.

In later releases of JTCS, we had changed some of the details in the data file formats. Although we made every effort to preserve backward compatibility with older scenarios, some things may have broken in the particulars.

If you were to post here a .zip file of the older scenario -- all files, including .scn, .org, .map -- maybe we can figure out what's wrong. No promises.

Ah - copy, that makes sense. Thank you very much - no worries, if it works it works, if it doesn't its fine. Please see attached zip file with .scn, .map, and .org files. Thanks again!
