Open explorer at the save game folder. Select an existing CMT file, right click and select copy. Then right click on explorer pane and select paste. You'll get a "SpsvNNN - copy.cmt " - click on it and edit the file name deleting the " - copy" and change NNN to the slot you want to use, like 003 if you are wanting it in slot 3.

It's basic Windows 101...

If windows is too much for you, then open the game and start a random battle, doesn't matter which. Save that to the slot you want to use (and if you want a special file name, use that) when you get the opportunity to save. Exit the battle generator and game and copy your dat file over the dat file of that scratch save you made to the slot you wanted.

But the original sender should have zipped up both files, in the first place.

Go to your save games folder ( if this is a save game not a PBEM ) and find the number of the DAT file that was sent then create a CMT using the same number so you have SpSv065.dat.....click on any other CMT in that file and SAVE AS SpSv065.cmt then open it with note pad and change the text to Frenchmen

Ah ok, so that file is basically generic? I guess it only determines where the scenario / save game shows up in the menu?

Basically that, and the name if you gave it one. dont edit a cmt file directly though unless you know exactly what you are doing as if you exceed the name length it'll blow up most likely.

If you want a specific name then its best to generate a throw-away game in the generator and save it with the file make you desire, then extract the dat file to the save game folder to overwrite the scratch game.

Better yet - in the future, make sure the PBEM sender always sends both files in a single zip or rar since the pair is a set.

CMT is needed only for save name, not what it contents.

Ok, then we don't need it in the future. I will get working on the next scenario, hopefully I can post it during the weekend. We are nearing the end of the war now, so the next one will probably be about Strasbourg.

Can't believe we made it to 1945... felt almost real time

Quote:
January 6th 1945

After clearing the Mulhouse Gap, we went into divisional reserve for reinforcement and refit near Strasbourg. Last month the Germans launched a significant offensive in the American sector in Belgium: It seems they are now coming for Strasbourg. The Americans want us to give up this city, but we will defend this piece of French soil to the death!

The German 198. Infanterie-Division is attacking out of the Colmar Pocket towards Strasbourg in the north, with the 106th Panzer Brigade in support. They have smashed through our lines and pushed one of our regiments back into Obenheim with heavy losses. You can expect assault rifle armed infantry, Panzergrenadiers in apc, as well as Panther tanks and self propelled guns. The Germans have some limited air support as well. Our heavy arty is not yet online.

- Deploy your troops near Krafft
- Move south (west on the map)and try to reach your beleaguered force in Obenheim
- If you find that reaching your allies is impossible or too risky, establish a defensive line near Gerstheim and stop the German advance there

Ever thought about compiling all this into a campaign for us others when you're done?
