1) Delete old F40 folder and all files inside
2) Unzip new F40.gim folder (with all its files inside) and then copy-paste all of it to AABattlemap folder

Basically, it's the same thing that you did when you 'installed' the fix for the beta version: download, unzip, copy-paste

Func, there definitely is some sort of problem.  It works on one computer and not on another of mine.  I did the same thing on both - just over-wrote the F40 folder with your new one.  All files are from your new one and none in the folder are old.  They all match the files in the zip file...

I think I'm going to be doing a lot of sektor editing as well.  Wanna come over to my place and do mine, Calvin?  wink

Then, we'll have to wait until Saturday ... then I'll have access to my portable PC (or laptop or whatever word you use in English) and I'll install the new module. Let's see if it works there

Now I'm working in a PC with Windows XP installed. Also, I'm working with the new latest version of AABattlemap (0.80a, I think).

A question: it's only matter of names or convoy raids don't work as well?

Try this: after installing the new module, delete 'start.AAM' file. If then works, the problem is with that file. Also, try loading old savegames and tell me if they work (in my case, they work)

Yes, I had tried old save games and they didn't work.  I'll try deleting start.AAM when I'm back at my other computer where I have the problem.

Deleting start.aam does not help me either.  There's no way I'm going to manually fix each and every sektor, either.

I downloaded the module in a PC in the university, and it works, so it's not a problem of the file. It has to be a problem with the instalation. In this test, I instaled AABattlemap from scratch (from daak.de), then F40.gim and then 0.80a update of battlemap (from flamesofeurope). It works, even the convoys

I don't know what's the problem in your cases, but you should not edit the sektors because it's highly probable that you're going to have compatibility issues (specially with convoys). Try downloading the file again just in case you downloaded it corrupted somehow. Also, beware of direct access (is that the word?), because in some cases are corrupted or not well addressed. Try starting AABattlemap from the .exe file, not from a direct access in desktop

As last solution, send me by e-mail a zip file with your AABattlemap folder (including the F40.gim file instaled) and let's see if I can discover what happened

Func, I really appreciate you trying to help.

Please post the link to ABattlemap, and the link to the 8.0 alpha so that I can try a reinstall.

As I said, yes it did work for me on one computer but not on the other.  Unfortunately, I do almost all of my playing on the computer where it does not currently work, so I can't play 1940 right now (yeah, real emergency!  smiley).

AABattlemap from scratch (0.79):

http://daak.de/hilfe/download/setup79f.exe

0.80a version (you need log in and then download the file that comes with AAP40 module. Inside that latter download is the AAP40 module (ignore it) and a small .exe file. Unzip, copy and paste that .exe and it should work). In fact, I think that you have that, Gamer

http://www.flames-of-europe.de/

Always remember do backup files

Edit: AABattlemap has a uninstall tool. Maybe you should use it before reinstaling

I tried everything, including uninstalling everything and reinstalling everything from scratch.  I still have the exact same problem - all the sectors on the Europe side of the board (and a few on the Pacific side) are all scrambled.

Seems to have something to do with how the Europe map was added onto the Pacific map, because India is labeled correctly, but West India (for example) is labeled "Fleet Gather zone 2".  One of the sector files is messed up, or something.

It's very rare. Now I'm using my other PC, downloaded the module from my signature, and it works (it means that I have installed the module in 3 different PCs without problems). Send me your AABattlemap folder and let's see what's happening

OK, I'll send you files...

Remember that the exact same thing happened to Calvin, too.

Thanks for your time.
