Tried to make a new scenario and could not get it to show up in the scenarios listings in game.

To test it I copied an existing scenario, added one ship at the west coast (copied the info from another ship, pasted it and changed the ships ID# and name. I changed the scenario name inside the XML file and renamed the XML file the same.

I copied and pasted the XML file into the scenarios folder. Launched the game and the new scenario was not listed under scenarios.

My fist question is do we need a program to edit the XML files, or will opening it with notepad or wordpad, editing then saving work? If a program is needed do you have any suggestions where one can be downloaded. If not,... then what am I doing wrong?

Also would it be possible to get a post some day detailing exactly how to make new scenarios, and exactly what all the settings in the XML files mean.

Re: Problems

The scenario should show up if you copy it to the the Scenarios folder, but there are a couple of edits that you should make in the root <game> element.

First, set name to something new - this is how it will show up in the scenario list when you are loading it. Second, make sure ScenarioFile is set to true. You should end up with the first element of the file looking like this:


game name="ScottWAR Scenario"
I'm working on a doc explaining the entire file structure.

Re: Problems
I checked those and they were correct, but still not showing up. Then I figured it out,....the file must be placed in the my documents/saved games/WPP/player1/scenarios folder. I was placing it in program files/KEStudios/WPP/Content/Scenarios.
