ABattleMap Modules

Intro:
A quick tutorial on using ABattleMap:

* Navigating is done by holding down the right mouse button and moving the mouse.
* Placing new units in a territory is done by left clicking on the desired unit in the ToolBar window, and then left clicking in the desired territory. To place 5 units at a time, hold SHIFT. To place 10 units at a time, hold CTRL.
* Deleting units is done by clicking the middle mouse button on the desired unit, or by changing the mouse function to delete by clicking "DEL" in the upper right corner of the ABattleMap window. To delete 5 units at a time, hold SHIFT. To delete 10 units at a time, hold CTRL. To get back to the default mouse function, click "ESC" in the upper right corner of the ABattleMap window.
* Moving units from from a territory to another is done by dragging them with the left mouse button. To drag 5 units at a time, hold SHIFT. To drag 10 units at a time, hold CTRL. To drag a whole stack of units, hold CTRL+SHIFT.
* Undoing a recent action is done by clicking "UNDO" in the upper right corner of the ABattleMap window.
* Zooming in is done by pressing "+" on the numpad. Zooming out is done by pressing "-" on the numpad.
* Recovering the InfoView and ToolBar window after they mysteriously disappeared is done by removing the "ABattleMap.ini" file from your ABattleMap folder (default: C:\Program Files\ABattleMap).

Sorry if this has been posted (I don't want to read 17 pages in this thread).  This program doesn't seem to work great at all.  You can't do production or anything.  I don't get it.

Try TripleA. It's a proper software game.

On Flames-of-Europe Atilla provides an update from ABattleMap 0.79f to 0.80.

I do not know what was wrong with 0.79f but 0.80 seems to be needed for his P40-modules.

... just to let you know.

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

This thread no longer seems to be related specifically to Anniversary Edition.  Should it be moved?

It never was only about Anniversary edition.

Battlemap is a map program for all versions of A&A.

Please do not move this thread, it is fine (and needed) where it is now.

Yes, it was originally about the A50/A51 ABattlemap modules, but now it is about ABattlemap modules in general (The first post has been changed).  New players who were introduced to A&A by A42 or P40 and have no interest Anniversary Edition would likely never find this thread on their own: it seems to fit better in the "Software" board or on one of the "Play by Forum" boards.  I am baffled that you feel it is needed here in the Anniversary board when it seems (to me) no more appropriate here than on any other board dedicated to a specific AA edition.  Anyway - I mean no offense, just trying to offer a suggestion.  Thanks!

You solved your own bafflement.. this should be on EVERY A&A board for which there is a battlemap .udf (since there is no one board for all versions).

Perhaps it could be on the Software forum: http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?board=53.0

Stoney, Again thanks for all the work on the P40 module. I enjoy using it when I play. Were the black and blue sz labels in all your versions or just the final...I never noticed until the other day. Btw, where did the thread go?

Any chance you might consider doing something similar for the AA50 map?

The P40-modules-thread is here:
http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=16253.0

You will find similar maps for AA50 in the first post of this thread. Either use the map provided in the A50.gim (A51.gim) folder or - if you prefer another color-scheme - copy the maps from the ABattlepack-Folder into the appropriate A50.gim (A51.gim) folder.

If this thread could be stickied in the topic for every game, then yeah that would be great!  but I'm not sure that's possible?  So it seems that the Software board would be the first place someone would look for this thread if they didn't know where it is and it already holds a generic ABattlemap sticky.

Does anyone know if it is possible to run Battlemap on a Pocket PC?  I'm running Windows Mobile 6.5 curently.

I copied the setup file into my Pocket PC, and tried to run it, but it doesn't allow me to run the program.

If it doesn't allow you to run the program, then I'd guess the OS isn't supported.

There is a Battlemap bug that happens so often that there must be some kind of standard solution.....

Basically, every so often the Infoview bar simply disappears, and won't come back.

Is there any way to fix this besides reinstalling?  In the latest instance, reinstalling didn't fix the bug for me.

Help!

Help!

- Close Abattlemap
- Go to the directory where ABattlemap is installed (e.g., C:\program files\abattlemap\ )
- delete ABattleMap.ini
- Restart Abattlemap and both windows will show up in the upper left hand corner.

This bug should be fixed in the newest version of ABattlemap.  You can get it by downloading and unzipping Atti's P40 module from FoE (you must be registered), and replacing the ABattlemap.exe file in your ABattlemap program folder with the ABattlemap.exe file found in the download.  Let me know if you continue to experience the bug.  Thanks!
