##### adding 4.13's New Guinea New Britain maps to a 4.12 install
« on: November 18, 2017, 09:09:29 PM »

This is all thanks to Squashman!
Some users may not have noticed this discussion so I am adding it here in the MapWorx.

In Squashman's Eastern Java, Borneo map discussion he writes how to add the New Guinea New Britain maps from 4.13 to 4.12 in this link:
www.sas1946.com/main/i...172.0.html
And, there is more discussion about that in pages 6-8 of that same topic - like how to add static.ini object lines of text so that you can save missions on the maps.

Below is what Squashman wrote:
******************* IMPORTANT ******************
This map has been tested in Modact 5.3, CUP (up to latest expansion Part 22), HSFX 7.03, BAT (up to v3.2 Angels High) and all
versions of 4.13 up to and including Modact 6.4. (My guess is that it will work in pre-4.12 versions, as long as the appropriate
supporting sfs files are there - see below)

If you are installing into a 4.12 version, you will need some files from 4.13 in order for the map to work properly.

The Java Map requires some objects from the DT New Britain - New Guinea maps in 4.13, which are contained within 4.13 root directory sfs files -
If you look in the root folder of 4.13 you will see that there are some extra sfs files compared to 4.12 - namely fb_3do27.sfs and
fb_maps21.sfs -

You will therefore need the sfs files from 4.13 in order for the map to work properly.

This is very easy to do!

Just copy the following files from the main root directory of 4.13
fb_3do27.sfs
fb_maps21.sfs
Then paste them into your 4.12 root directory.

You must then ADD the following entries into your 4.12 .rc file to enable the sfs files to work -
The .rc file is inside STD folder - Mods (#WAW, SAS etc)/STD/RC file

@sfs MOUNT fb_3do27.sfs
@sfs MOUNT fb_maps21.sfs

Open the .rc file by double-clicking then scroll down to the maps and 3do sections - put the above entries at the bottom of each
section - they follow on numerically so it's obvious where they go

After this the map should work perfectly! - and you will have the added bonus of also having the new DT maps; New Britain New
Guinea and some Eastern European Maps (just copy the all.ini entries from the 4.13 maps folder for these extra maps to appear
in your FMB lists)

Actually to make it easier - here are the all.ini entries for NGNB maps

New-Britain_New-Guinea_Mar-43_DT NGNB_DT/NGNB_3-43.ini
New-Britain_New-Guinea_Sept-43_DT NGNB_DT/NGNB_9-43.ini
New-Britain_New-Guinea_Jan-44_DT NGNB_DT/NGNB_1-44.ini
New-Britain_New-Guinea_June-44_DT NGNB_DT/NGNB_6-44.ini

Hi Czech
Just noticed this thread when I was looking for some map tutorials to recommend to a newbie.
Noticed that the link was down when I tried it, so reposted it here
https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,56172.msg624169.html#msg624169

Note - if missions do not save after installing the 413 sfs files, then you have missing 3do objects or missing static.ini entries - or both
The thread in the link above explains how to get these (the discussion is regarding vpModpack, but the principles are the same for any 412) .
