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



  • drupal development



  • First off, it looks great. Second, I have no idea how to use it. What is the purpose of this, is there a way to play other people, because I dont even see a way to play by yourself. Or is this just used to keep track of a game?

    Here is a tutorial that will show you how people use abattlemap http://www.axisandallies.us/onepagetutorial.html it shows you how to play at flames of europe but I’ve moved to play at www.aamc.net now. Abattlemap is kinda simple… just a map and pieces and a way to save the map setup and email that save file to the other players. If your looking for something for more try Triplea http://triplea.sourceforge.net/



  • Ok, Thank you. 🙂



  • I tried to become a member at the flames of europe and it says that my nick name is an illegal name
      HELP
    I’ve also down loaded the a battle map and a driver and some other stuff, I can get to the maps and I cant seem to find the latest A&A Global 1940. I really want to join the on line group to play games. Im very new to the computer so please excuse me if I dont know all the technical terms. I know that I installed the 8.0. My wife did actually and I think for some reason I can’t open a certain file    ARGH  its frustrating

    Not many play at Flames of europe anymore… my tutorial teaches using flames as the example… sign up for www.aamc.net

    To make sure you have abattlemap setup correctly do is: go to www.abattlemap.com this install will make sure you have the correct version. If you think you have the correct version… then the 1940 global module should work. To add this module to your abattlemap… download and unzip it to the folder you have abattlemap installed to… which is most likely C:\program files\abattlemap to download the module at http://www.axisandallies.us/GA3.zip and unzip it to your abattlemap folder i just stated.



  • Tank you. I’ll try to find time this weekend to look into it



  • Ok had no problems installing it but it’s only showing me the Europe map I cant see the whole world and I can’t get the map to scroll any suggestions?

    Hold down right mouse button and drag in the direction you want to see.

    @Ol’:

    Ok, so we need to change the map to 26 before starting any league/tournament games requiring alpha 3?

    Nah.  They can play currently, we just use territories like Holland, W. Germany, Denmark, and Germany for the Italian ones or the Med Island ones - it would be preferable to add all the territories however.

    I updated the module… it has all the territorries in the Russian NO now… I think hehe and update a few other things… the newest version
    is “Axis & Allies: Global 1940 Alpha+.3 - v1 - GA3.gim”

    http://www.axisandallies.us/GA3.zip v1 updated Tuesday, Nov 29, 2011 11:43 PM EST

    I downloaded this update and S.Italy is missing their air/naval bases.

    Concur.  You can fix this by putting them on and saving the file in the correct directory as the start file.  (it’s called start.)  Just FYI, but it should be fixed.

    download updated with the s.italy naval and air bases. Merry Christmas!



  • Thanks for all you both do! Merry Christmas!!!

    Was the actual exe linked somewhere in this thread?  Met a buddy who hates to set up the board, but loves the game…thought of battlemap (of course, why would you EVER set up the board???) but I dont have the original executable anymore.





  • Malta and Malaya, Quebec and Queensland, & Nova Scotia and New Britain are pairs of territories both given the same abbreviation on the map…

    Also, the ANZAC NOs should be adjusted so it reads “ANZAC is at war with Japan:” before the NO details to match the format of the others; otherwise, it can be misconstrued that ANZACs second NO can be achieved while not at war.



  • What do I need to download before I get this?

    Note that I have NOTHING related to Axis and Allies on my comp.

    (I.E., how do I get the capabilities to play by forum?)

    Please help!

    Download and install this:http://www.mediafire.com/file/w05zwkxji5w/ABattleMap_Installer.exe

    Some info on how to use Abattlemap can be found at http://abattlemap.com/

    Then download and unzip this: http://www.axisandallies.us/GA3.zip into the Abattlemap folder (default C:\Program Files\Abattlemap)



  • Thank you! Unfortunately mediafire won’t let me download from my home computer  :x :x :x :x :? :? :? :? so I’m trying from school, where downloading .zip files are difficult to work with.



  • Are any of these mods compliant with Alpha+3.9?

    Funcioneta’s is still showing me OOB, and I could modify the setups and stuff but it would take work.

    If there is something compliant with Alpha+3.9 (and I’d assume there is because I’ve seen +3.9 games), where is it and how can I get it?

    Thanks!



  • Sorry for so many questions, but I’ve put the .rar file into my ABattlemap folder and now still cannot open it.

    How do I do this?


  • 2017

    If you don’t have the option to extract when you right click the .rar then you need to get a program capable of extracting .rar (maybe use a trial version of winrar or winzip if you can’t find a suitable free program).

    When you extract the .rar there should be a folder named GA3.gim
    If you place the GA3.gim folder in the Abattlemap folder, then you will have the option to open a new map of Alpha 3 v1 when you run Abattlemap (under New).



  • Try a program called 7-Zip. rar files are just another type of zip file and need to be unzipped. http://www.7-zip.org/

    Alpha 3.9? Didn’t know it was called 3.9… went over to http://www.harrisgamedesign.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=6149 and did find that there is a new update: 02/11/12 Setup revised. Germany, France and UK modified.
    Soviet NO change:
    I’ll have to get a new update to the module soon… anyone that already understands the changes and would like to tell me what needs changed… feel free to instruct me 🙂



  • OK. So that means I need to redownload and replace the .rar file?

    Am currently trying to unzip the .rar from my home comp (the 4th different comp I’ve used in this process  :roll:)



  • OK. So, I have downloaded a free .rar un-.rar-er, un-.rar’ed the file, and opened ABattlemap. It. Doesn’t. Work. First time I tried, it wouldn’t let me scroll (how do you scroll again? Just want to make sure I’m not stupid), and the second time when I selecteda unit, wherever I moved my mouse it would place those units. And not so a territory ends up with 1000 fighters, just so that there are fighters all over the screen.

    I will try again, butif this doesn’t work can someone SEND me (PM me for email) their un-.rar’ed TMTM Global 1940 module? Thanks. PS make it Alpha+3.9 version. Thanks.
