The tile should say it all. I have created a map and have add normal distribution, BUT now I want to add scenario distribution.
When in the warlight editor i try to add scenario distribution... I get this msg saying I need two scenarios.
So I make two normal ones and and wright them down in scenario distribution.
I still get same msg.
So I go to help page and search and I found the article on it but I dint really find an explanation of what to do to make it work.( or maybe i dint find good article)

I must be missing something.. I am sure its really something simple but I just cant seem to make it work.
Anyway hope you can tell me how to do it, and thank!

Oh, BTW this is my map have a look at it [My map](http://link.warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=8033)

Scenario Distributions are a bit confusing. When you click Add Distribution and select Scenario Distribution, it tells you to give names to each scenario, one per line.

If you don't enter two names here, you'll get the error you mention.

Scenario distribution needs seperate lines.. one for each side of the distribution..

if you want to be able to choose your spot, but you only get half the map to choose from, and your opponent gets the other half, it requires you to make two seperate ones, each one with one half selected.

I still can't get this to work. If I go to the distribution window and select Scenario it gives me the same warning (need two scenarios). But there is no way to add two. It won't add one at a time. There needs to be a step by step guide on how to do this because I have tried everything I can in that window.

Please help!

I think I just got it to work. Wiki needs an update though with a description.

Is there a way to have teams within the two scenarios?

On my map: http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=9405

I have 5 nations basically (all have a major color and additional bonus). I have paired them up in a 2 team alliance mode (basically only works 1 v 1 now). One person gets Federated Commonwealth (2 nations), the other gets Concord of Kepteyn (3 smaller nations). My question is whether this has to be played with 2 people, or if they can play it with more players (each taking nations within the alliances). Would you have to assign manual teams and predetermine who gets what nation, or can you allow it to be random teams and the ones with 2 on a side can only pick from Federated Commonwealth and the 3 can only pick from Concord of Kepteyn?

This is similar to Axis and Allies where you can play 2 players (each taking a 'side') and also have additional players controlling the individual countries but still be allied.

How can I set up those options on my map?

Thanks.

BTW, scenarios are a pain in the butt to assign territories because the window with listing on the left does not scale. If your scenario name is more than about 2 inches long, you cannot read the options inside it (assigning territories). You can't hover over the name or anything.

See below:

Only way I could read the modes was to name the distribution 1, 2, etc and rename later. But you can't rename the scenarios themselves (have to delete and start over).

Basically I think this interface needs tweaking because it can be really powerful and add a LOT to a map.
