Important Note: Letter case is important everywhere - most everything must be
lower case; nationality names and scenario letters must begin with a Capital letter.
Scenario Customization (c:\upfront\scenario.txt)
note: some of the following scenario customizations may not work in the
current version of IUF.
To play a Custom Scenario, type in "z" when prompted for a scenario within PlayIUF (java -cp . playiuf).

1. If a scenario has no attacker and defender then those commands listed above that require an
attacker or defender won't work.
2. If you omit "scenario letter" you will get a basic scenario with attacker and defender using default orders of battle from scenario A.
Order of Battle Customization (c:\upfront\roster.txt)
German | Russian | American | British | Japanese | Italian | French
elite | secondline | partisan
attacker | defender
1. If a nationality is played that does not have a customized order of battle listed in roster.txt
then the order of battle from scenario A will be used.
2. I don't believe secondary weapons can be placed in the roster.txt file
at this time.
