Hi, I've had this problem for a while and its incredibly frustrating. I just found over 600 custom maps for download - ... But it looks like many of them - if not all by the look of it - suffer from same problem that I encountered when I first started using some of the older custom maps with Blitzkreig Mod; the game plays fine, it will even actually allow you to save.. But loading that save shows the default COH loading screen (one that I never see on maps that DO save properly - big clue!) and then just goes back to the main menu. Grrr. This is bad ...

1. I often scale my graphics settings up and down between vanilla CoH and Blitzkreig because BK is a resource hog. I forget to change them back before a game. Its convenient to just be able to save, go out of the game and change settings, then go back into the game.

2. I play heavily with the AI Skirmish mode because I don't always have a lot of time to play a game, so I save and go back later.

Unless Relic can patch this I suspect that there must be a way to fix this using Worldbuilder. If that works and its some kind of setting change that I could run a script for all these ~600 maps, fix them and re-release.

So come on people, surely someone knows something about this problem with such a big game ?
