I'd like to know how to increase the number of units on the battlefield to something larger than the 32 allowed in the game options. I have downloaded maps containing lots of troops but I can't seem to get it to work in my maps. I've modified the lua settings as mentioned in the tutorials without success. Any ideas ?

You mean shipped or custom maps? I dont think you can change the shipped ones, You would have to edit the ingame file or something and I belive that's hard coded. But when you modify for example ABCg_con.lua you could try and change the first number and not only the last. Like this: team = ALL, units = 150, (Thats the max unit count for conuest Ive heard) reinforcements = 150, soldier = { "all_inf_rifleman",40, 50}, assault = { "all_inf_rocketeer",15,20}, engineer = { "all_inf_engineer",15,20}, sniper = { "all_inf_sniper",15,20}, officer = { "all_inf_officer",15,20}, special = { "all_inf_wookiee",15,20}, I think the first one is minimum and the last is maximum, so with a high max and a low min there wont be as many as it looks like. At least I think thats it. Maybe you have to enable Uber-mode or somethink. Cant remember how right now.

Add this line SetUberMode(1); underneath the line conquest:Start(). Then you can increase the units number (units = #) to anything you want. Keep in mind that higher unit counts may cause lag and problems online. Although the game can support up to about 300 units per time, I'd say stick to under 120. (Which is the limit per team if you want your map to work online) Finally, increase the individual unit counts (which was explained in the post above), munge, and you're done.
