Problem with Divided Ground: I can't get the Islamics or Muslims to show up

Problem with Divided Ground: I can't get the Islamics or Muslims to show up
Hi all, i just installed Divided Ground on my windows XP machine for the first time. I am testing one of my scenarios, and cannot get some Kuwaiti units to show up on the map.

1. The game is installed on the "I" drive, where I put nearly all my games.

2. The game is patched to 1.2

3. I have the 1.04u patch installed (and I confirmed it's working). :thumbs_up:

4. My custom scenarios are present.

5. I even re-downloaded the "muslims" and "Islamics" zip files from this site, unzipped into my DG main directory, and...nothing. :dunno:

Can anyone clue me in as to what the problem might be? I have exited the scenario and restarted a few times - units are missing each time I (re)open. Note that Israeli and Egyptian units show up just fine. Everything looks great - except that the Kuwaiti units are a "no show" on the map. :mad:

Maybe copy my entire DG folder from my old win98 machine onto a CD, and copying it into the directory on this computer? I'm grasping for straws here. :chin:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. The Kuwaiti battalion showed up on my windows 98 machine without any problems, back when I installed the Islamic and Muslim add-ons a few years ago.

There is also an exe update to 2.00 and I think 2.01 on the ftp. You may need one of those as well.

Thanks for the heads-up on that - i installed them to the DG folder, but still nothing.

However, when I went to look at the OOB of the scenario in question...I noticed the Kuwaiti and muslim (rioters) were stripped out - as if i never put them there in the first place. Weird.

I'll try taking the original files off my old computer, and transferring them to this machine and see if that helps. If not, I'll try copying and pasting the entire folder over - something has to give.

Btw, the bases and unit pictures for the muslims and islamics are present in the DG game folder - so perhaps it's something to do with my oob file. Strange though how the extra units were "removed" from my scenario's oob file.

Only thing I didn't do was look at the oob file in the editor to see if muslim and islamic unit appear there.

Does anyone in question have these addons installed and would be willing to take a look themselves? I could simply e-mail you my scenario and you could check it.

anyway, thanks in advance.
