Same here. But I dont think it is PBEM related. It is rather the effect of loading a game saved before the update.

Correct. I had it in single player saves as well. When you upgrade a lot of things can potentially change and at least the initial save you are running can reference items incorrectly. Theoretically the next turn saved after the upgrade should correct all that, but I can't say that for certain.

What map is that? If it's a custom one - mind sharing it?

2nd mission from the US Campaign. It would be great if the campaign maps were released as stand - alone

That's a shame - some of the campaign maps are extremely well done and having them available as standalone would be highly appreciated.

There is a 3rd party utility available at CMODS that will unpack campaigns into individual scenarios. I'm on my phone right now and don't remember the name of it but I have used it and works great

Bummer. Here is how I have things setup:

  • Java is on my path - which is what the java vm installer does by default. (1)
  • I have the ScAnCaDe in a directory C:\Programs\ScAnCaDe
  • Then you create a directory where you place your campaign files (you can do it in the game's directory but I prefer to do this in a scratch location where I copy the .cam and .btt files I am interested to)
  • Using the command prompt change directory to the location above e.g.: cd \temp\campaigns
  • Then in that location type this command: java -jar C:\Programs\ScAnCaDe\CMx2_ScAn_CaDe_v2.0.jar

That will produce the output files in the current directory along side the .cam and .btt files.

(1) You can test that java is on your path by typing java -version at the command prompt. I believe you need java 1.7 or above for the program to work. If java is not on your path you can either add it to your path or change the command above to something like: C:\PathToJava\java -jar C:\Programs\ScAnCaDe\CMx2_ScAn_CaDe_v2.0.jar

Note: the above paths have no spaces in them to keep things simple. If your paths have spaces then adding quotes in the right places will make it work.

This issue sorted itself out after a couple turns for me.

Thanks for the help-- I'm still doing something wrong but maybe I'll have a moment of zen at some point and it'll all click.

I particularly like the map from the first scenario of the US campaign. If I were up for learning how to use the editor, I would take that scenario and rework the OOB a little and try that. I really don't care much for how the scenario plays out, but I love the map.

Bummer again. Send me a PM with what is going wrong. I would be happy to help talk you through getting it to work.

Rgr that chief--
EDIT--  I'm so clueless with Java I'm having trouble even finding the language to describe my issues.  Going to read on the matter more before I take your time!

some, or most, are included as QBs.  At least, I know SDs are supposed to provide a "clean" version to be used as the basis for QB maps, but some may not have been suitable, or required extensive modification.

Alright, so-- loaded up scancade and java on a different computer and we're in business.  Not sure what the problem was on my main machine but I suspect it has something to do with the Russians. 

LOL glad you got it working.
