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



  • Hey Sarge I’m having trouble here. I mean I can play the game that it comes with but I can’t get your global to work for some reason. I have no clue how to either. I really need to know so I can teach my friends how to play.



  • Hey Ryan, so you can’t get the game to start? Did you click New / Axis and Allies: Global 1940 Alpha+2 AxisandAllies.US Version 3?

    When you click that does the map show up? Also, do you have Abattlemap Version 3 and did you paste the T40 folder into the main Abattlemap folder?



  • I just want to say, it’s a beautiful map. Thanks to both Sgt. Wonko and TMTM. Keep up the good work and you just might be looking at staff sgt Wonko!



  • HAHA! Ok nobody told me to paste anything  :lol:! I’ve been playing D-Day all day bye myself thinking “now why isn’t this working”. No its just not in the “new” tab. I have the latest version but I didn’t paste the file. Where is the main file i can’t seem to find it.

    Yea, you have to paste the whole T40 folder into the main Abattlemap folder. Which is probably 😄 Program Files/Abattlemap. There’s going to be a bunch of folders with 3 character names. Those are the various mod folders. The T40 folder goes in the same place.



  • Wow I’m an idiot. And I want to work with computers for a living too  :lol: haha all well. But now its in the module and still not working.

    So you can’t see the start file in the New tab inside Abattlemap (Axis and Allies: Global 1940 Alpha+2 AxisandAllies.us Version 3)? That would mean that you possibly pasted it into the wrong section or didn’t paste all of the contents of the folder. You can always start again with a complete reinstall of Abattlemap using Holkann’s installer, and then extract and paste the T40 folder again.

    Or post a screenshot of your Abattlemap folder, and T40 folder so that I can see what’s going on.



  • Okay so I’ve got the thing in My documents and I copy and paste it to the AA folder but it doesn’t work. Its not a folder though its a Rar file. How do I unzip it?



  • HAHA! YES! I’M A GENIUS! Never mind Sarge I got it working. Nice map by the way. Reall fine job. Say wanna start a game? I’m up for one. Also could we useNAs? Oztea has some good ones.



  • Excellent job gents- Map is awesome!!! 😄

    Sorry, I have too many games going right now. My sleep is suffering  😛

    Glad you like it  🙂



  • I’m experimenting with lowering the size of the map file to see if that has any effect on the mod crashing. It’s crashed a couple of times for me and I know that Stoney and SgtBlitz said that it crashed on them as well.

    I’ve reduced the size of the file from 16 mb to 10 mb (Func’s is 7 mb). I’ve had it crash a total of 3 times so it’s a bit hard to be sure that this is going to be the fix since it happens pretty infrequently. If it seems to be the solution I’ll upload a new version with smaller image file sizes.

    I’ll bet the issue is with the larger size.



  • @TMTM:

    I’ll bet the issue is with the larger size.

    I reduced the image from 24 bit to 16 bit so it doesn’t look as good but no problems yet. Maybe I’ll wait a week and see if everything’s stable.



  • yeah mine crashed too- let me know when the reduced mod is ready.



  • I reduced the file size and it still crashed on me, only once, but still I don’t want it to crash at all. So now I’m looking at some other things as well. I’m going to decrease the files size even further and see what happens.



  • Any updates on this yet???  I wanna be able to finish and start some more games.



  • I’m still having some trouble figuring out the problems. I’ll be posting a lower res version of the map tonight though as that does seem to help. Unfortunately to get down to a 7 meg map file I would have to decrease the size of the map which I didn’t want to do.



  • @questioneer:

    New update posted.



  • I have not had any issues with it crashing…yet. I did just download 3.1. Thanks again for all the work!



  • @Ol’:

    Good to hear that you haven’t had any crashing. It must be somewhat dependent upon different system specs. If you like I can post the hi-res version of the map since it looks better.



  • I’ve just posted a new folder with the hi-res versions inside so that people who don’t have problems with crashing can use them.


  • '10

    Now that the signatures are dead, where do I get 3.1 from ?



  • Got the latest one- 10KB one-

    1.) it takes 2 tries to get a new map each time
    2.) can’t open my partners map- he may have the 3.0 version still- I’ll check.

    😞 😞 😞
