    Ghost of Disco. This has inspired me to have a go at modifying Alexandre Ostrowiecki's other scenario 'Yom Kipur -Day of Treason 1973' (unless you are already planning to do so yourself!). I just played a little bit and the Israelis take quite a first turn battering from the Arabs.

      That reminds me of the Exodus Democracy Game.. Too bad I missed out on the Red Front Democracy Game

        Here is the page for Alexandre Ostrowiecki's Yom Kipur -Day of Treason 1973 scenario. Looks like this mod marks the scenarios tenth anniversary year



        As well as a general graphics mod I fixed up the spelling and grammar a little and changed some of the units to more historically accurate ones (IE Su-17 in place of B-22 Minsk, T-72 in place of T-40 and Arab Mech Inf. in place of Arab Cavalry!). Now I have finished with my tinkering I am going to have a go at crushing the Israelis

          When I tried to play your modified version of the scenario, MGE just quit on me...

            I will download the files and test them. EDIT: Just downloaded the files, unzipped them as they were and played it OK. Very strange!

            Has anyone else tried this mod yet and if so have they had any problems?

            Ghost, did the original unmodified scenario work?

            Does it crash when you double click on the scenario file or at another point?

              It has very good aspect your mod McMonkey. This evening - night, which I have all the time of the world I go to putting to playing it.

              I am going to order a new version to industrial units of the units of Fairline of Usamerica Civil War, because I discovered that with a small modification the horses stay more "realistic" and stylized... To seeing if you like it.

                  Yes, it crashes immediately on loading. Usually, it's a missed comma or something similar in a text file, but I've replaced all the text files with Nani's originals and it still crashes. I replaced the graphics files in his original scenario with yours, and it works fine. Very nice look to a classic scenario, McM.

                    So the graphics are causing the crash!? I have never heard of that happening before. They are all gifs which I think is correct. Any idea which one is causing the problem and why? I'm not sure I can solve this problem as it is working fine for me. Could someone try and find the fault so I can then upload the working files to the SL Site?

                      Not at all. The graphics are fine. I moved your graphics into the original scenario, and everything works. I think its the scn. files themselves. Did you resave them? Or did you hex edit them or something like that?

                        No, I didn't hex edit or alter the save. I did edit the Rules and Events files but I tested them and they work fine for me. I did notice that the original events file had a load of 'Create Unit' events where the home city was USA or World both of which don't exist. I changed all these to NONE in my modified files. I also swapped some of the unit names for more accurate ones but I went through the events file methodically to make sure everything matched. Once I had finished with the changes I stopped getting the 'Error in events file' type message when I began the scenario.

                        Ah, do I need to Delevent the events file? I guess the scenario may be reading the old events still. Not sure why this would work for me and crash for others though. Would you mind giving it a go please Tech or Ghost?

                          I discovered the problem. I tried substituting each of your files into the original scenario, one at a time, including the 3 Scn. files. It worked even when all files had been switched.

                          It's the long-winded name you gave the scenario folder. Too many characters. I changed the folder name to Yom Kippur 2, and it works just fine. Mystery solved!

                            Doh! That's how I name all the the scenarios on my hard drive so I know who the author is and it doesn't cause me any problems so it did not occur to me that this could be the cause. I will rename the files and re upload them. Thanks for taking the time to solve this problem Tech. I will remember it in future!

                            Ghost, how is the Exodus mod coming along?
