All right. I managed to build a campaign by editing the existing cpn files in the data folder.Does anyone know if I can make the scenarios which the campaign is made of not appear in the Load Scenario menu? I want only the name of my campaign.Thanks for reading!

include unlisted = "" in that <Scenario>-tag.

A condition is not a trigger.
An effect is not a trigger.
A trigger is a combination of one or more conditions and effects.
It causes effects to happen if and when conditions are met.
Period.

I wrote like this:

<Scenario dispName = "Scenario1"unlisted = "" filename = "first.scx"BackgroundSet = "Atlantis">description1</Scenario>

It doesn't work.Now even the campaign name won't appear.
What did I do wrong? Do I have to put the scx files to another folder instead of the default?

Did the campaign appear before? Maybe it won't appear without playable scenario's... otherwise, check syntax and the <campaign>tag.

Don't use unlisted, this makes them not be listed in the campaign menu (for example if you want a cinematic that just plays and isn't listed in the list). I don't think there's any way to do this, the reason the scenarios from the standard campaign aren't listed is because they're in a .bar (archive) file and the game knows to look for them there.

If you don't want your Campaign scenario's to show up in the Load Scenario directory than first of all you will need to put the individual campaign scenario's in their own folder.

So your scenario's would be put in a folder under the "scenario" folder such as "scenario\my_campaign_name".
Then you put all your scenario's for that Campaign in that folder and they will not show up in the Load Scenario Menu.

Now in your CPN file where the name of each scenario is listed your filename statement will be like this:

filename="my_campaign_name\firstone.scn" and so on.

Note: You do not need to put "scenario" before all that because AOM knows to look in that directory.

I hope this helps.

Are you using AOM Vanilla or AOMTT? Also are you using WinXP or Win9X or Win Me?

What I said above always works for me as I stated so it just may be where you are putting the files or syntax in the cpn file.

Well, for my campaign, I put the scenarios into a separate folder called "lsa", within the "scenario" folder. Then, when I go to the load scenario option, I can't open them. That's a good thing, as far as I'm concerned... prevents people from skipping scenarios so easily.

But you have to make sure and include the folder path in each scenario filename section of the campaign file.

Since you are on AOMTT then when you save your scenario it is saved with a scx extension but come to think of it that would make no difference because AOMTT will look for it anyway even it was a scn extension, so just forget I asked. Sorry

King Jared and I do ours the same way so make sure and include the folder path in each scenario filename section of the campaign file as we both have stated before.

It is probably just a syntax problem in your cpn file so just check through it carefully.

Oh by the way King Jared I think that you can use the cheat codes in a campaign to advance to the next scenario so the only way is to stop people from using the cheat codes in the scenario's and I think there is a trigger for that in the Editor.
