Scenario Editor . . . needing step-by-step instructions

Recommended Posts

Can anyone please provide a step-by-step on how to load scenarios in the Scenario Editor?  For some reason, I can only load Battles & Battles only . . . no Campaigns and no Saved Games . . . I dread to think of what would happen if I tried to edit a PBEM!

You can't load saved games or campaigns into the editor. Campaigns can be "unpacked" using a special program someone made (can't remember the name) to individual scenario files that can then be loaded in the editor.

Wow.  That makes the SE really weak.  I hope the person who made the special program you mentioned chimes in.  Thanks!

It doesn't make the Scenario Editor "really weak", although perhaps it's name should be changed to "Scenario Creator and Editor". In the meantime you can go to cmmodsiii.greenasjade.net to find Mad Mike's most recent version of his editor for both scenarios and campaigns.

I'd have to say, of all the games I've ever owned, the editor in CM is one of, if not the, strongest.

Drawbacks? Sure. It can be a bit arcane, but all of the information is in the manual. Advanced techniques are available on the forum. The editor is a tool which leverages the game engine and makes CM the one game which has always been on my hard drive.

Every game owner has the same tools to create battles and campaigns which were used by the developers. That's rare.

Hey, if you liked it, show me the love. Hit that heart. Once I get 300 up-votes, I can trade them in for the entire CMBN bundle on the BFC website.

This is the program that "unpacks" campaigns to individual scenarios that can then be modified using the editor.  it is one of my favorite CM tools..keep in mind it does NOT work on CMSF.
