Problems uploading my custom scenarios Sun, 07 August 2011 08:34
A few weeks ago, I wrote my first scenario for Memoir 44, and using the editor saved it on Days of Wonder Online. However, it seems stuck in a state of indeterminate limbo.

1 - No matter how I search, the scenario cannot be seen on the big list of user-generated scenarios.

2 - I cannot open the scenario from Days of Wonder online in the editor - it shows me as having no scenarios completed or in progress.

3 - The scenario is visible on my user page, and I have entered a battle report for it.

This seems odd, and I'm not really sure what to do. Is there some vetting process for users or scenarios that's not been mentioned, is it a glitch, or what?

The scenario is RO - Basovka Station, ID 8321. It's based on my favorite Red Orchestra map - not very historical, I know, but it plays well. I first discovered this problem when I uploaded a second version of this scenario with a mistaken title (8320 - Bondarevo Station), and tried to go on and delete it.

Any help would be appreciated.

So I wrote a second scenario, Kaluga Gap, and was able to successfully upload it to Days of Wonder online. But my first scenario still seems stuck in limbo. I'm tempted to try uploading it again, but I really don't want to seem like I'm spamming the system or anything, and my old scenario is already invisibly eating up two Game ID's.

Hi there LH,

Welcome to the forum. Was the scenario made public on the editor's "battle info" screen?

I see and can access all your scenario's on your user page but cannot find or access Bondavero or Bosovka in the SFTF on the DOW site.

Hi,

There is a wrong value in your scenarios' Battle Info. This problem has been explained in the FAQ : the scenario information field Original Scenario # should be left empty.

Your scenarios contained values like 1. I deleted them, so your scenarios should be available again.

Have fun !

Re:Problems uploading my custom scenarios Wed, 24 August 2011 21:59
I made a (simple) scenario today and tried several times to upload and test it, but there are problems:

1. The german infantry (all behind sandbags) doesn't show.
2. I don't get to play it at all; you only see the map, no cards, no suroundings.

When I look at the battle info in the editor the nation is always blank. When i try to fill it in it shows the wrong nations for a side (e.g. side: Allies and nation: German). After changing and saving it its blank again when I reopen the map.
Everytime I try it online (my scenarios)it blocs (and I loose 2 ingots).

Does anyone recognise this situation?

We are going to investigate this. It looks like a bug, but investigations will tell what goes on wrong. Please do not modify this scenario until we figure out.

BTW, you also filled a bug report, and that was the appropriate thing to do. Thanks.

Last, but not least : do not worry about the gold ingots. The system automatically detects issues and refunds gold ingots within the next 24 hours.

Hello,

I would like to add that everytime I open the editor I get the message:
"A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.
Script: resource://app/res/dbCache.jsm:72
"

I also made the Kinderheim scenario again, but the result stays the same.

I made another test: the castle. Same problems. The armies are schwitched and look the other way. They also flie the other way ...

Re:Problems uploading my custom scenarios Wed, 07 September 2011 19:09
I've made my first scenario Stalingrad v2.0. After playing it against johnnie and a friend I decided to go public. Therefor I entered the historical information etc.etc.

When I published again, two things are weird:
1. My scenario is only visible in my scenarios, not in SFTF

2. If I select the map in my scenarios, I don't see any information. I don't see the map or any text. I did see the map before entering the information.

Only thing I changed was the text in description, the amount of command cards and the amount of medals to win.

Can somebody tell me my scenario is visible to them and wether or not the text is visible. If not, plz give me the solution.

grtz
