Question Random Map

Guys,

is there any chance, with the help of a tool, etc. to save a random battle map after while a battle is already in process. I simply forgot to save the excellent map prior the development phase and now it bugs me on how to save it (somehow) for further use.

Klink, Oberst

Default Re: Random Map

Copy the relevant save game files to the scenarios folder in windows.
Rename the 2 files as the scenario form (spscnXXX.cmt & dat) in windows.
Start game.
Open scenario editor
Load your scenario
Enter map editor screen
Save your map.

1st, thanks for the quick reply! I tried it, but I get the error message that the scenario can't be loaded. Perhaps it's because it's a PBEM saved game?

If it's a secure PBEM it's encrypted so no, you cannot use this trick . If we allowed encrypted PBEM to be converted to scenarios there would be rampant cheating. You didn't mention PBEM in your first post.

Thanks Don!

Understood, would really open the door wide open for some 'gamey' behaviour. Wanted to use the map for a mirror; next time won't forget to save it while creating the battle.
