    INTRODUCTION TO THE SCENARIO LEAGUE

    Welcome to the Civilization 2 Scenario League. This forum is home to Civ2 scenario designers, playtesters, graphics artists and enthusiasts. The emphasis is on user created scenarios so if you enjoy designing or playing scenarios then you are in the right place!

    As you will see in the 'Current Projects' there are a lot of scenarios under development. If you want to try out any of the scenarios made by the members here or by past masters please check the 'Links to related sites' section or 'Links to scenario archives' section. Our own Scenario League site has some of the best and most recent scenarios but there are plenty of other great works out there!

    If you are new to Civ2 and need advice on how to get anything to work please read the 'A guide to starting scenarios' section (post #9) or start a new thread about your issue and the members here will be happy to help. We hope you enjoy visiting the Scenario League :)

    NOTE:
    After our move to CFC from Apolyton our SL Wiki site is still being rebuilt. If you want to help rebuild it (it is really quite easy!) please let us know in the SL Wiki Upload List thread which lists the pages that still need building.

    A GUIDE TO STARTING SCENARIOS

    1) Make sure the scenario you wish to download is compatible with your version of Civilization. For example a scenario designed for Test of Time will not work if you only have Multiplayer Gold Edition and vices versus. You may also need to add a patch. If you are not sure look for a 'Read Me' text file in the scenario folder. This should state the version needed.

    2) Unzip the downloaded scenario and put the folder into your Civ2 folder. I normally create a new folders called Scenarios to keep them in order. You can play the scenario from your desktop if you wish but keeping them somewhere in the Civ2 folder helps you keep track of things.

    3) Make sure you check in the scenario folder for a notepad file called "Read Me" or "Players Notes". These documents may contain important information regarding the installation of the scenario as well as background info. Some scenarios come with a batch file that must be run before starting a game. The batch file normally re-names certain rules, events and graphics files automatically and you may need to repeat this at various points in the scenario. If you are running Windows XP or Vista you will need to download this: http://sleague.apolyton.net/images/7/70/CHOICE_APPLICATION.zip
    Choice will allow XP and Vista to run the batch file.

    If CHOICE.com does not work for you then try CHOICE.exe which can be downloaded in this thread: http://apolyton.net/forums/showthread.php?p=5615989#post5615989

    4) If you encounter any problems that you cannot resolve please feel free to ask for help in this forum. Enjoy your scenario!

    Looks like I managed to sneak in and post the first thread to christen the Scenario League in its new home. Do I get a prize?

    I will do some work on it to make sure the links are up to date, the images are transfered to CFC and there is nothing on there that breaches the rules of our new host (I can only think of one possible baddy!). I would also like to expand a few of the sections. If anyone has any good ideas please let me know and I can edit them into the posts!

    You get massive thanks for putting this amazing thread together, sir! Bravo!

    Though, one thing that springs to mind - I wonder if it is OK to link to Apolyton?

    :goodjob: McMonkey and good to see that the threads in the scenario league at CFC is created.

    @CurtSibling: Why should there be a problem linking to Apolyton?

    Probably no real problem from linking - Just being a bit paranoid! :)

    I have to go through the links to ensure they are up to date. I also need to upload the images here (there aren't too many and they are mostly png files) as it seems wrong to expect Apolyton to keep hosting them for another site. I was told somewhere that if you link to an image on another site it take up some of their bandwidth (or whatever the correct term is), though I'm not sure how big a problem that is for larger sites like CFC and Apolyton.

    @Magic_gorter
    There is a version of this thread in the Civ2 Scenario creation forum. I was wondering if it might be a good idea to remove its sticky status. I will only be updating and maintaining the one here. To have two versions on the same site seems like a waste. Its up to you. If you want to keep the shorter version let me know and I can copy and paste the relevent posts periodically to make sure it is up to date. I don't mind either way :)

    About Civ Tweak, etc.: is there any way to get them to run in Windows 7 64-bit? :D

    The scenario league link for the Imperum Romanum redux is broken; it leads to the apolyton thread which has its attachments show up as corrupted/removed.

    Got the files from Catfish's cave. Just thought you should know.
