Have the Steam version of Battle for Europe. Grabbed several BfE skirmish maps, map installer says "success!" (pointed the installer to c:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Cossacks II Battle for Europe), but when I load the skirmish map, it hangs just as the map is loaded (I can see the peasants frozen) so I have to end task from task manager.

Any ideas?

You need to check your version.

It appears that the version is incorrect for some reason.

Go to the main menu in the game and look at the bottom right hand corner.

Let us know what the number there is.

Anything other than 1.3 and you will have problems.

If it says 1.3, than you may have to re install.

Says 1.3. I guess I'll try reinstalling then. Can't see what could've happened; haven't tried any mods or anything, but I did try some maps for the wrong version (and the installer failed). Maybe I'll try cleaning up all the custom maps first.

Doh. I had created Run/Data folders in the root directory to try to get some of the older maps to install. Deleted those empty directories, maps work.
