Smolensk - Orsha Scenario - Units stuck on arrival

Smolensk - Orsha Scenario - Units stuck on arrival
I am playing the Orsha alternative scenario (0708_02sAlt) and a good portion of the GD Division makes an entrance on hex  0,101 - which is a marsh hex - as a result they are simply stuck there - no roads or rail lead out of the hex - or am I missing something that lets me move them out of the hex?

If not, is there a way to edit the scenario so these units can be used?

In the campaign game (0708_01sAlt) that hex has a rail in it that leads to the next hex...

Thanks

Using pcedit.exe, I checked the hex for that scenario. It does have a rail in it, but, it is obscured by the supply source. Try putting a unit in travel mode and see if that works. The other option is to try putting the unit in rail mode.

The units arrived in travel mode - when I tried to change one of them to rail mode it gave the error message "Can only change to Rail Mode in hex containing valid rail line."

As I remember the Germans can not use the Rails in Smolensk. Also did you try to put the unit "on foot"?

It won't let me change from travel mode - error message is "Unit cannot deploy in current terrain"

Here is a corrected map. I will take full responsibility for breaking some of the scenarios. We migrated the more detailed Minsk map across into the Smolensk Gold release and there was some differences.

I had hoped we had found them all, but unfortunately it's now obvious we didn't.

The hex in question (0,101), doesn't have any rail or road int it and you could only move out of the hex by going on foot. Not the best solution, particularly for HQ's etc.

I'm attaching a revised map. This should show up in game once you overwrite the original map.

If you are playing PBEM, please ensure your opponent uses this latest map also.

Thanks,

David

Is this why there are no more fords on the Dvina or the Dnepr?
