The Battle Info Tab tells the Online game important information about your scenario, e.g. cards, medal count and who goes first.
It also has some information to help those decide whether to print out the scenario and play face-to-face.
The first time you click on the Battle Info Tab, it should look like this.

The next 3 items are the same as those on the toolbar, which can be accessed from any tab:

Board Format

  • Standard (default).
  • Overlord. Unsupported in Online game.
  • Breakthrough. Unsupported in Online game.
Only Standard is supported in the Online game.

Board Background

  • Countryside (default)
  • Winter
  • Beach
  • Desert

Expansions needed

  • Extra Base Game (This is for face-to-face games when number of tiles and figures exceed one set).
Each of the following when checked opens up badges, figures, tiles, etc. Not all are supported for the Online game.
  • Terrain Pack (includes Combat Engineers)
  • Eastern Front Pack
  • Pacific Theater Pack (includes Combat Engineers)
  • Air Pack (includes Exit tokens)
  • Mediterranean Theater (includes Exit tokens, and Combat Engineers).

Days of Wonder Online

Status:
  • Private (default). When saved in this position, others cannot see your scenario. In Memoir'44 Online, it appears under the "My Scenarios" tab; you can invite experts to play, or play solo against the computer, "Johnny".
  • Public. Same as above. Now others can see your scenario on the web search page, Scenarios from the Front , but not yet in the Memoir'44 Online game to play without your invitation. (This was sufficient in creating scenarios for face to face play.) There is one more step you must take to "publish"; see Tips and Tricks.
Scenario ID: do not use. When you save a scenario Online you get a # here.

Front

Choose for your scenario.
The Memoir'44 Online game can sort scenarios by front (as well as battle date, users' average rating and name).
If you enter After Action Reports (AARs) (see My Service Record), your statistics will be broken down by side played (Allies, Germans, Japanese, Russians) based on the front:
  • West (Allies vs. Germany)
  • East (Russia vs. Germany)
  • Mediterranean (Allies vs. Germany)
  • Pacific (Allies vs. Japan)

Operation

The dropdown contains a number of operations, some German, for historical interest or perhaps for campaign, but serve no other function in the game.

Start Date

Date of Battle. Shows in Online menu for games and for printout.

End Date

Uncheck the box, "Same as Start Date", to enter an end date.

Type

  • Historical (default)
  • Fictional

Starting Player

  • Top Player (default)
  • Bottom Player
  • Special (unsupported)

Nearly all official scenarios have the same medal requirement for both sides.
*Unsupported Nations: France-Free Forces, France-French Resistance, France-Vichy Army, US Marine Corps.
The results for the Online game used to have a problem with games where one side wins but the score is the same. (Ex: Allies needed 7, but had 6, while Axis won with 6, making 6-6.) This seems to have been fixed under your Officer Career and its spreadsheet.
