Here are the Scenario Editors for the Civil War and the Napoleonic Battleground™ series. Before you download these, you must understand a couple of points:
- These are not TalonSoft products and are not supported by TalonSoft.
- These Scenario Editors cannot be used for commercial purposes.
If you haven’t already, you must have a look at the FAQ to understand the reasons behind these issues. I’ll wait while you do that..... OK, all done? Good. Now on to the installation instructions:
- Download the Zip file cwedit.zip into a Civil War Battleground™ directory on your system or the file nwedit.zip into a Napoleonic Battleground™ directory. For example, the default Battleground Gettysburg™ directory is C:\BGG and the default Battleground Waterloo™ directory is C:\BGW. Note: if you want to use the Civil War Editor in more than one Civil War Battleground™ game or the Napoleonic Editor in more than one Napoleonic Battleground™ game (you have purchased all of them, right?), then you will need to copy this Zip file into the other directories (or Extract its files into the other directories).
- Run WinZip (or NetZip) and Open the Zip file, then Extract to the Battleground™ directory. In particular, you should get files cwedit.exe or nwedit.exe (the Editors) and cwedit.hlp or nwedit.hlp (the Help files) plus some important dll files (don’t delete these).
That’s all there is to it. When you want to run the editor, run cwedit.exe or nwedit.exe. You probably want to create a shortcut to these programs either on your desktop, Start menu, or in your Battleground™ program group. See your Windows documentation on how to create shortcuts for this.
Be sure you have the corect version of the Battleground software before you try the Editors by checking the Battleground patch page run by
Rich Hamilton. Please note that if you use the patches from the Talonsoft / Take Two web site these editors & 32-bit engine will not work.
