Thanks Arlith, that's a feature I've been wanting for a couple years now.

Its going to be really handy for big battles with the bot, where its often faster to set all player units to deploy before round 1, and let princess place all her units in one go.

EDIT:

How do you set up automated skill purchases I'm not seeing it in any of the menus.

Nevermind, found it in the manage campaign drop down.

I'm also excited about the multi-select options. :)

I have never heard the suggestion of setting my units to deploy before round 1 to speed up Princess. She can take a while with a lot of units and a large deployment zone. I may have to try that.

Just because I feel like it may have been missed, I suggest people try out a game on the 76x40 Carver V - Airraid map.

 Great to have a new version, but I have not been able to run a battle in the last 3 releases, I keep getting this error message:

ERROR: Bad skin specification file: file doesn't exist!  File name: skins/defaultSkin.xml
ERROR: Bad skin specification file: file doesn't exist!  File name: skins/defaultSkin.xml
ERROR: Bad skin specification file: file doesn't exist!  File name: skins/defaultSkin.xml

ERROR: Bad skin specification file: file doesn't exist!  File name: skins/defaultSkin.xml
ERROR: Bad skin specification file: file doesn't exist!  File name: skins/defaultSkin.xml

 MegaMek just locks up and fails to load at all. So not a clue what is going on.

just fought a battle last night with current build no problems.  Do you have some customization that may not have been copied over into the right location?

 Running pure canon and stock everything. Nothing customized at all. I got no clue's. Have tried everything. Created the unit under a fresh install of the previous 3.30 MekHQ and then fresh install of this one. I never copy over each version has it's own install. Tried to post my campaign file but it is too big at 1 meg.

This is happening because it can't find the file for the skin.  Once MM starts, go to View > Client Settings, the nchange to the graphics tab and select a different skin.

I've run into this as well, all the skins are in the MM/HQ folder, its written correctly in the clientsettings.xml under mmconfig but still was giving me that error and drawing all white.  Why is it doing this Arlith?

So on the start up screen before you click 'start a new game" you went to view/client settings/graphics tab and change the skin or does the dropdown box list no skins at all? (in which case you will have to go into mmconfg/clientsettings.xml and try retyping whatever skin you want to use from the skins folder, is how i was able to get around it)

I have tried loading from both MekHQ using ATB generated battle and a direct start to MM. I see the skins, I changed from default to Federated Suns, not getting the skin error but MM does not load any further. Just sits there and say's "waiting on server". IIRC using port 2346

Ah ok, there might be another error in your HQ or MM log file since your launching from HQ other than ERROR: Bad skin specification file: file doesn't exist!  File name: skins/defaultSkin.xml which if you can see the skin I would imagine that error is gone.

That is an issue with AtB not the skins. Near the bottom right of the AtB settings in Campaign Options there should be something about a timer or timing. Change it from 500 to 1000 and try again.

Got mine run all the way up to maximum, 1500, I think it is.  That may be why I have never seen this issue.

All mine run fine at 500, but I know 500 has caused issues with peoples games in the past. I doubt there is any other issues other than what I posted above but still waiting for a response from the OP on that issue.

I Dont know if this has been fixed. But is princess still focusing on commanders. I have yet to have a single lance or company commander survive matches using the last build.

Depends on if that victory condition is set. Command mechs have a higher target priority, but if the victory condition destroy enemy commander is not on then princess won't know who the commander is.

Just out of curiosity, are you putting you commander in the largest, baddest 'mech on the field?
