Sgt. Wonko's & TMTM's 1940 Global Module for ABattlemap



  • Hi there, due to work constraints TMTM is handing over the reigns of the mod to me. Although I’m sure he’ll still have plenty of questions to answer as we move forward with updates  🙂

    Please note that there are currently 2 modules for Global 1940 right now. This TMTM mod and the one and only G40 mod by Funcioneta which you can get from this thread http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=20043.0. If you are going to be playing A&A on this forum I recommend that you get both.

    So here is Version 3.1 of the mod. It has Alpha +2 national objectives, auto-convoy disruption and for those who haven’t seen it yet a brand new map with realistic textures and new colors. The sector info has been updated as have the colors for the units. This mod requires the latest version of Abattlemap 0.80+. HolKann’s Abattlemap installer is the easiest way to go http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=12873.msg357193#msg357193.

    A version of the map without terrain is available for those that find the textures distracting. To use the map with no terrain simply delete (or rename) the existing Map.bmp file and rename MapNoTerrain.bmp to Map.bmp.

    The default setting is auto-convoy in which convoy disruption is automatically calculated for powers that are at war. The convoy damage markers can be used to indicate the damaged inflicted but do not add to convoy damage. The default map file uses the French fleet from the 5th row as well.

    If you want to have convoy damage entered manually simply copy the UnitStats.txt file from the Switch To Manual subfolder and paste it into the main T40 folder. Now warships will not cause convoy damage and you must manually place convoy damage markers from the 5th row in sea-zones. These changes will still allow you to play with other people that are using the default setting, but convoy damage will not show up on your screen unless they also place convoy damage markers.

    If none of that made sense just leave things as they are and convoy damage will be done automatically.

    Version 3.1

    • Added low-res version of the map as default.
    • Added 2 inf to Switzerland.

    I have reduced the size of the image file to 10 mb which reduces issues with crashing. There are hi-res versions of each map included in the folder, you can use those versions if you never had any issues.

    If you already have Abattlemap 0.79 it’s better to upgrade since HolKann’s installer may write over some of the mods you’re using.

    Credit needs to go to Stoney and Funcioneta for all of their work on the original G40 module! This mod is based heavily on theirs and wouldn’t be here unless they had done that work. And also of course to TMTM who created the original map and added all of the new Alpha +2 national objectives just to make our gaming lives easier. Check out TMTM’s website here http://axisandallies.us/.

    Future plans for the mod include Europe and Pacific versions of the map, and possibly automatic national objectives. Not all of the NO’s can be done automatically but I’m going to take a look at how much can be automated and go from there.

    For anyone interested in more advanced editing of the module, or for creating your own mod, please learn more by reading Stoney’s excellent and comprehensive Abattlemap tutorial at http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=18773.0.

    How do you incorporate the downloaded .rar file into the T40 folder ?



  • @Battling:

    Extract the RAR file and in the T40 Version 3 folder is a T40.gim folder, Copy T40.gim and paste it into your Abattlemap folder.

    when I downloaded this

    Download TMTM Mod Version 3
    http://www.mediafire.com/?wwjdlq5m73egcxa

    all I got was the rar file. It is not zipped  so what is there to extract ?


  • 2015 Official Answers '11 '10 Moderator

    Maxo, use 7zip.  Go to 7zip.com and download it.  It’s an extracter that does .rar archives.



  • The file for abattlemap is .exe which is a windows extension.  I am on a macintosh.  Is there a mac version of this or am I out of luck?

    Ok, I don’t know what I did, but I extracted the file and then copy the file to my ABattlemap. When I opened it, all I got was a garbled screen of colors. Any idea what I did wrong?



  • It sounds like you may not have the latest version of Battlemap. Are you running 8.0?



  • Is this mac compatible or no?



  • I don’t believe that Abattlemap is mac compatible unfortunately.



  • Although it is possible to download software that will allow you use windows programs on your mac. Don’t know if you want to add that to your mac just to play A&A online (although I guess it has other uses).

    I’ve seen a Mac that opens Windows like a program… because Mac’s have intel chips… get windows install as a dual O/S just for Abattlemap 🙂



  • @Sgt.:

    It sounds like you may not have the latest version of Battlemap. Are you running 8.0?

    Yep…when I originally downloaded battlemap, I used Holkann’s installer.



  • @Sgt.:

    I just checked the version and it says 0.80



  • Hmm…that’s odd. I haven’t seen it before myself.

    The first thing I would recommend is to reinstall Abattlemap and then paste in the T40 folder again.

    Have you heard of this happening before TMTM?

    You used Holkann’s installer and placed T40.gim into the Abattlemap folder and closed and reopened Abattlemap and when to New and selected the module “Axis & Allies: Global 1940 Alpha+.2 AxisandAllies.us Version 3” and it messes up? Have you retried it after rebooting? Tell me about your computer… windows version and memory size etc



  • When you click File - About… does it say 0.80 alpha1?



  • @TMTM:

    When you click File - About… does it say 0.80 alpha1?

    That is what it says TM….however, I just got lucky. I downloaded IE9 the other day and still working on understanding how it works. It downloads files differently than what I am used to. It appears to me I had downloded your file twice and when I tried unzipping it, I kept getting conflicts. I ended up deleting the file from my download folder, then went and checked battlemap. I found the same rar folder already in my battlemap program, so I clicked on it and extracted there…and BINGO! Sometimes it is better to be lucky than good  😄

    It works great and looks fantastic! Kudos to both you and Wonko for all your work.



  • Thanks! Glad everything’s working now.
