posted 04-23-11 01:07 AM EDT (US)   
I downloaded a single player map called "Rise to Power" and I opened my editor and changed the leaders around, but when I load it up in game it has the same original leaders. And I have tried saving it to a different name and when i do it dont show up? ANy advice?

Well I have the steam version of the game and i have windows 7 but I cant alter where its installed as steam dont give me a choice. Also I have ran both the editor and game as administrator on both the game and the editor thinking that would clear it up but it doesnt.

That's possible, but reinstalling the entire Steam folder can be problematic, especially if you have other Steam games installed... I think disabling User Account Control can also help (google "disable uac" if you don't know how to do it).
