I recently discovered http://companyofheroes.filefront.com and went crazy downloading new maps. I got most .sga and all the .sgb maps to show up in the map menu in skirmish or multiplayer, but certain seemingly random maps don't show up. I downloaded around 50 new maps and about 40 of them show up in game. (All the .sgb maps I downloaded worked) I'm not sure if I need to do something else to get the other maps to work, or if I just can't have that many maps in the folders at one time.

I'm simply installing the .sga maps in C:\Users\Username\Documents\My Games\Company of Heroes\ww2\scenarios And .sgb maps in D:\Steam\steamapps\common\company of heroes\WW2\Data\scenarios\MP And launching the game in -dev mode (tried non -dev mode and less show)

Just a few examples of maps that did and didn't work: (I can list more later if anyone thinks they need them) Maps that DID show up: 4p_Theater_Of_Death.sga MapPack1.sga

Maps that DIDN'T show up: 4p_MirrorCity.sga Romel.sga Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated, -Thanks

Some mappers incorrectly package their maps up before releasing them, especially .sga maps where there's a whole folder structure that mappers screw up sometimes. Not much you can do, unless you want to download Corsix's Mod Studio, extract the .sga archives, place them in their correct folder path, then re-package them into new .sga archives.

Lethal Dosage, Thanks for recommending Corsix's mod Studio... I used it to unpack the .sga files that weren't working and copy them into .sgb folders and it works perfectly. Now any map will work. Thanks again for the help!
