It seems that the second issue has not been sorted out after all.

I'm player one, and the files I send are working properly: I can open them, and they ask for the other player's password as normal.

The issue is that the game is creating a third (.new) file in his PBEM folder (image attached), and he can´t open the files (Save game failed to load !!).

He's using Win10 (v13-DL) with the game installed to C:\Shrapnel Games\The Camo Workshop\winSPWW2. I'm using v13-CD.

The .new file is nothing to do with us.

Which files are you sending? - should only be the .cmt and .dat files for the slot. If you are sending the pbemregistry - error - toasted!.

I'm sending the proper files (.cmt & .dat) which work on my end. As I mentioned, his system is creating the .new file, and it's not allowing him to load the game.

Then the problem must be on his system, perhaps anti-virus?

That's the first thing I asked him, but he swears that's not the problem. Perhaps he should double-check it.

Something at his end seems to be causing the problem, and anti-virus is often the cause of problems. The .new file is also suspicious of some sort of problem there too.

He's using AVG antivirus. Does that ring any bell? He tried disabling it with no apparent effect.

Default Re: PBEM Fail Problem

Maybe this will help explain it. That file is NOT being generated by the game. And NO I have no idea what G-Suite does but it's obviously on his machine


Quote:

What is a NEW file?
A NEW file is a G-Suite file used by G-Suite programs, including Docs, Slides, Sheets, Forms, and Sites, to create a new blank file. It does not contain any actual information; instead, it is used as a link that can be typed into a web browser to create a new blank G-Suite file that can be edited and saved by the appropriate G-Suite application.
