Ohhhhhhh! Yes please!!!! Now I need to start VirtualBox or vmware to run it Smile


Well in this case, you have all that you need already.

Since you use VirtualBox, that means you also have access to either OS X or windows.

In this case, just install the editor, copy it on Linux
a) install xulrunner 1.9.0.7
b) run:
xulrunner <path to the editor>/application.ini


for more info, see:

And my debug log follows below...
...
scenarioModifiedForUndo: 0
do_scenario_window_load END: 22


Hope this helps.

This is exactly what it should look like.
Furthermore, at that point the main window SHOULD be visible.

Another thing you might want to try: (notice the "js")
m44sed.exe -jsconsole

Re:New Scenario Editor Fri, 10 April 2009 23:48
Sorry to interrupt the trouble-shooting, but I wanted to share a feature that I had missed. Smile

I was looking for a way to delete a scenario that I had created. I knew how to edit a scenario (change it in the new editor and then save in to the DoW site and replace the old version) but I wasn't sure how to outright delete a map - so here's how you do it:

In the editor program (if you can open it Very Happy ) go to "File" and slide down to "Open From Days Of Wonder Online". If you're not already logged in, it'll ask you to enter your info and then it'll open a familiar screen that looks a lot like the old version.

In this screen you'll have the chance to edit (the pencil icon), delete (the trash can icon) or duplicate (the two maps overlapping).

I hope this is useful for other people. If everyone already knew this, then forgive me for pointing out the obvious! Cool

Tried as you suggested (after editing the prefs.js file again) but nothing reported for the jsconsole command.

So, I thought I'd better check the console command again just to check the previous log file - nothing?

I've uploaded a screen print (see my user page gallery) of the command prompt window for reference.

What now?

As an aside, and maybe totally unrelated and purely coincidental, I do not now appear to be able to access the Memoir front page on the website - it keeps freezing with 3 'pics' still to load.

Cool! It works! I already had xulrunner 1.9.0.8 on my system (Ubuntu Intrepid), it gave me an error about the min & max versions so I changed the MaxVersion setting in the application.ini to 1.9.0.8 and ran it again and it works!

Thanks for this!

BTW. I actually thought I needed a couple of binary XPCOM components too (like sed.dll in the components directory), but this is pretty nice Smile

Thanks again,

Any chance I could get a hand with some install trouble? Near the end of the installation, I get a message that" The Mozilla control was unable to detect where you Mozilla layout libraries may be found. You will now be shown a directory picker to locate them."

And, natch, I cannot locate them. To the best of my searching, I've no bin folder in any mozilla directories.

Help would be much appreciated!

Re:New Scenario Editor Sat, 11 April 2009 23:00
Is there something wrong with the "last edited" function in the new editor? In SFTF no scenario has been edited since april 6th.
But there are some scenarios edited on 00/00/0000 and one of them is a breakthrough scenario.
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=5562

I have also made one breakthrough scenario that I haven`t published and it comes up as edited on 00/00/0000.

It seems there is a bug with the modification date when a scenario is being posted on-line. I will investigate as soon as I come back from my Easter week-end.

Yes, I will fix this soon. We are in fact compatible will all version more recent than 1.9.0.7. (at least of the 1.9.0.* type)

nothing escapes you.
sed.dll is actually only used on Windows, it installs the two fonts that the editor uses to print.
On linux, you can do this manually if you wish too.
On the mac, it is does automatically.

I hate to ask that, but did you actually reboot you machine recently?
Regarding the web site, no this is not normal and certainly indicative of a wider range of problems on your machine.
Any other application or web site that does not work as intended?

I would certainly also try starting with no network.
Until now, the only confirmed successful launch after initial failure was ("rebooting without a network connection")., so that should probably be a good first step.

Strange, I can't access winter terrain. Should it be in the scenario editor? I can't use other terrain than what I got in the basic box.

Edit: I discovered more terrain from the choices under "Expansions needed". Just click on Eastern Front for winter terrain, etc. There's a good little tip for the (other) beginners!

Yes, but since the software performs a few query to our server at start-up (updating the list of Operations, checking the current session), I was wondering if it was a network-related problem.

So I still have no rational explanation for what you are experiencing. Sad

I've been having the same editor start-up stall as described before - stopping at the fonty bit.

I've isolated a conflict with one particular application:
  • aaCenter.exe - part of the AI Suite utilities for Asus motherboards

If that is running, m44sed stalls. If you quit it while it is stalled, it proceeds.

Oh, this is on:
  • Vista 64-bit
  • Core i7 920 overclocked to 3.3GHz
  • 6GB RAM

I like it as well.

I have a suggestion that may (or may not) cause problems with copyrights.

What caught my attention about Memoir (and this was the primary reason that I purchased Memoir) was that it plays exactly like "Battle Cry" (by Avalon Hill/Hasbro.)

I am wondering if any thought has been give to modifying your Scenario Editor for use with this game (have the option of any year (not just WWII) and additional terrain features not included in any of the (current) Terrain packs.)

The reason you note the similarity between the two games: Battle Cry and Memoir '44 is because they were designed by the same guy.

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgamedesigner/25

As far as copyright issues. I don't see it in DOW's interest to produce a product for Avalon Hill.

If you like the way the game plays out, just check out Richard Borg's other games that use the Command & Colors system.

I understand your points fully.

Has any thought been given to adding other Terrain features to the Memoir '44 Editor?

I would also like your thoughts about my posting the Scenario that I have created (for Battle Cry) to this board (for feedback.)

I'm not sure if I understand your question. Are you asking about what new terrain might be added to the game? In the scenario editor you can find all of the current terrain that has come out with every expansion so far and I can't think of any terrain that's missing...although I'm sure there's something. Rolling Eyes

To find the terrain, go to the top bar and click on "Expansions needed". Then choose the expansion you want and you'll get all the terrain that came with it.

If I'm not answering your question, just ask again and someone will try to answer.

I LOVE the new scenario editor, I've already submitted a scenario that I spent the entire week perfecting, but I cannot figure out how to delete my first draft (I had inadvertently saved it to the Scenarios From The Front section). This rough draft is listed above my final draft... I sure don't want you all having to play the inferior version.
Please detail the proper steps I'll need to delete it.
The scenario I want to delete is Scenario ID # 5662U.
(The GOOD one is # 5663U, entitled Gela - D-Day+1, about the US landings at Gela, Sicily. Check it out!)
Thanks in advance...

Thanks. This is what I had in mind.

I'll say again; I am interested in feedback on a Scenario that I created (using this Scenario Editor) for Battle Cry. My problem is that I do not have any opponents for either Battle Cry or Memoir '44 and would be interested in feedback on my Scenario before I "put it to bed."

I had this same question. Here's what you need to do:

1. Open the Scenario Editor on your computer and make sure you're hooked up to the internet.
2. In the very top menu, click on File. Go down to "Open from Days of Wonder Online" and click.
3. It may ask you for your User Name and password...enter them.
4.Find the scenario you want to delete on your list of completed battles.
5. Click on the "Trash Can" icon on the right.
6. Confirm that you want to delete the battle...make sure it's not your good version!

I hope that helps. Good luck! Cool

I can't help you there. I don't have Battle Cry and I'm working through the Campaign book when I play Memoir '44. I assume you've played the battles solo to see how they work. If you haven't, you might try playing them on your own to make sure they work the way you want. Good luck!

dwwin.exe is failing now. I have X61s Lenovo with fast CPU, and loads of mem. IS the software using some shady copy-protecting backdoor thing ?

NO. It is very clean. It is based on the same technology as the Firefox web browser.

We are working on it, but since we cannot reproduce the problem on our machines here, we need more information from you, beyond "it's not working, fix it" Razz

First question for you: what is your system configuration? Are you using XP or Vista?

Second question: do you know how to find the invisible folder named "Application Data" that is located in your home directory? If you do, then we can see together if the Memoir '44 Editor is able to create its preferences files in there.

I look forward to your answers. Thanks in advance,

John thanks for your help but I've tried all this and still no dice.
Whenever I try to load the editor it appears in my task manager and uses system resource as if its operating, but the editor does not appear on screen.

Did you check the screen print I posted, does that prompt any new ideas? - I'm at a loss.

Yes, I did.
I am at a loss too.
Frankly, since the number of similar problems is staying quite low, I have come the conclusion that something on your machine is different and causes the problem.
Unfortunately, since I cannot reproduce it, it is almost impossible for me to fix this.

Throughout this forum, I have given out all the ideas I had and procedures I suggested.

But here are still more questions:
Does Firefox work on your machine?
Can you access our website?
What about those URLS:
http://www.daysofwonder.com/api/common/login.php?sub=check_s ession
https://www.daysofwonder.com/api/common/login.php?sub=login_ np&login=YOURLOGIN&password=YOURPASSWORD

Would you please post the response (don't forget to remove/modify your password)

Will all the different armies eventually be added to the editor, or is US and Germany to be the only ones? If that is the case, we won't be able to modify any scenarios for the Russians or Japanese if the need arises. Additionally, it would be nice to update to British troops in relevant scenarios.

Otherwise, a nice piece of work, I really appreciate all DoW does for M44 players and the board gaming community in general!

These armies already exist in the editor. When choosing to create a scenario however, you will need to include the expansions that these units were introduced in for them to be possible selections in your menu.

O.K. I love the editor, but I've had my first problem. I've updated one of my scenarios and the updated scenario shows up on SFTF, but not on my user page. The user page still shows the older version of the scenario.
