What did you do with the files, once you'd downloaded them?

i followed the instructions, creating an orig map folder moving the relevant orig bmp files before downloading the new ones in the art folder, i then downloaded the new art files and finally the scen into the scen folder

btw it has completeley screwed up my game, none of my old save games using the stock maps will load properly only the extended map da babes senario seems to load ok,

You will need to copy your original map files back into the ART directory.
This is one reason why people prefer to have multiple installs on their PC.

sorry to be a pain but

i have done another install (WITP01) which works fine, my only question is on the widemap, no matter how i try i cant get the wide map to work on my new install, i know it works through the shortcut so i copied another shortcut and tried to change the target and directory to the new install file name,

''C:\Matrix Games\War in the Pacific Admiral's edition\War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe'' -f -px1366 -py768 -r (this works)

''C:\Matrix Games\War in the Pacfic Admirals's Edition\WITP01.exe'' -f -px1366 -py768 -r (this doesnt, am i writing the file name oncorrectly and if so what would be the correct way)


but i keep getting an error message telling me the path is invalid, some help woulfd be gratefully appreciated

is it possible to have two or more working shortcuts, or is there another way to get multiple installs playing on the widemap

witp01.exe ? What ?
What did you copy the exe or the folder ?

Below is my link to the new folder I created...

"C:\Matrix Games\WITPAe\War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe" -wd -px1600 -py900 -cpu4 -multiaudio -dd_sw
