Replication Path

Uninstalled exiting Steam JA2 Gold image. Deleted install directory. Emptied recycle bin to be sure.
Did a full reinstall of JA2 Gold, Steam version.
Installed 1.13 v. 8796.
Installed latest available AIMNAS from Github, downloaded on 22 Jun 2020.
Added Wine video DLL patch files to install directory.
Used default settings (also occurs with other resolutions), fullscreen.
Hire/create any merc.
Enter A9/Omerta.
Sneak off any map edge that contains enemy troops (West edge usually works).
Fastforward to contact.
When the enemy contact dialog appears, opt to Enter the map (i.e., do not autoresolve).
You will be taken to the force placement dialog.
There are no deployment bands along the edge of the maps. The Individual and Group placement does not work because there is no place to put them (the enemy deployment area essentially fills the map). The only way to start combat is to use the random [Spread] option.

Notes:
This does not happen in vanilla 1.13 8796.
This may have manifested in earlier versions.
I have not spotted any more reports of this in the forums. I have no idea whether it is unique to my installation/system.

AIMNAS maps are a whole lot bigger than standard. Use arrow keys to scroll to the map edge. ;)

I'm talking about the maps shown during the deployment phase, not the tactical battle maps. Those are not scrollable.

Sure it is scrollabe. Here's a vid I took to showcase it, with most recent aimnas nabbed from github + 1.13 rev 8827. Scrolling in deployment map is done with arrow keys.

Okay, then. Let me reinstall with AIMNAS again and see if that matters.

You're right. Looks like it was user error after all. However, I don't remember it behaving like this the last time I played AIMNAS (which was some time ago). It wasn't easy for me to check this as I had moved back to Vengeance Reloaded while awaiting resolution. Might be worth leaving the thread active or appending to the FAQ in case it throws anyone else.

Cheers.

PS. It looks like you're using SCI 8827. Is that an alpha dev build, or is there another file source I missed. The latest SCI I know of is 8796.

I tend to work on the source code some, so it's compiled from SVN repository, instead of downloading SCI packages.
