here's a perfect scenario.., for frustration!

Recommended Posts

it’s a given that using the ‘legacy’ scenarios and maps is a dicey proposition.

However, even knowing this I still get frustrated when I cannot determine how to open a scenario.

Even using my best powers of deduction, I am blunted.

 

There is a scenario under the Single Legacy ‘easy’ category that is a perfect example..,

KFORCE PROTECTION by Charlie Zero-Five (circa 2007). When I attempt to open the scenario I get the following message from both vers. 4.161 and 4.023,

 

“Error loading the scenario! It may be incompatible or its artwork (map) resources may be missing. Please see the log for more information.”

 

There is NO option to replace the map file. I’m stuck!

 

The log has the following info…

Can anyone aid me in getting this scenario to work? If files such as these are of no use, should the SB Forum do a purge of the files that are irrevocably ‘broke’?

I tried opening it in 4.023 and received an error about "It maybe incompatible or its artwork (map) resources may be missing".

My guess is that is uses a unit that perhaps no longer exists.

 

Trying to open in it SB Pro 3.3X had the same outcome.

 

I'm afraid my copies of 2.654 and earlier have been archived.

Thanks for trying to open the scenario, Gibsonm,

yeah, if your guess is correct, then a discontinued unit is probably available only on an early version. Sure would be nice to get it open and replace all the units with ones we know were carried forward into the later SB editions.

I'd still like to get into it. Anyone have a 2.654 or earlier?

Thanks Ssnake,

 

my guess is 30% of the legacy scenarios don't open in the SB 4.xxx series. As a second example, the Cat.sce scenario by Bluewings (legacy single scenario) gets the same error message in SB 4.xxx

 

 

Using the hint from Gibsonm, I loaded up old SB ver 1.226 and the KFORCE PROTECTION scenario (legacy single scenario) did open up! 

 

Using the 1.226 mission editor I erased the units in the scenario (leaving the route info and any other designer input alone) and re-saved the scenario renaming it "kforforceprotection_bare".

I now could open the scenario in the 4.026 mission editor and replaced the units, attaching each unit to it's original route line. The scenario now runs!    

 

Using 4.161  I converted the scenario map to 4.1xx use.

added 'cat.sce'

It seems to be tied to certain vehicles that were available in SB 1.x but not later (Jaguar 2).
