    I am excited to join the HOF experience.
    So, I am about to submit my first try.
    How exact do the 1/3 and 2/3 saves need to be.
    For one thing I don't know when I will win ahead of time.
    Also I have not memorized when each mark is that changes how many years pass with each turn. Is it ok if I just do my best guess for those two save files?
    Thanks.
    I am excited. Should be fun!

    HOF submission for Dummies (I wish someone would have done this for me!;)

    Setup game properly
    *Go to "Options" from the "Main Menu, in "Game Options" change AutoSaves.
    - "Turns Between AutoSaves" should be [1]
    - "Max AutoSaves Kept" should be [999] >Save
    ~Go back to "Main Menu"

    *Go to "Set Up Game" from the "Single Player" menu and select the 5 options needed for the Gauntlet/HOF game
    -Leader
    -Map Type
    -Map Size
    -Level
    -Speed

    From "Set Up Game" go to "Advanced Menu"
    >Select the "Leaders" that are required for the game, or choose the ones desired if "Any".
    >You can change SOME things from the "Game Options" Menu
    -World Age
    -Temperature
    -Rain Fall
    -Sea Level
    ~Are all things you CAN change

    Victory Types should be ALL the checked boxes

    Advanced Game Options
    - Allow Promotion Saving
    - Quick Combat
    - Quick Movement
    - One City Challenge
    - Raging Barbarians
    ~ Are all popular choices that CAN be changed.

    Start Game
    Before making any movements manually "Save Game", this will be your [1] submission.

    ~Play Game

    When Victory is achieved view "Victory Screen", click "Wait, Wait, one more turn"
    "Save Game" manually, this will be your [4] submission.

    Submit Game
    Go to HOF Main Page
    Sign up for the Hall of Fame, and submit password.
    ~This will be different than the Main Civ Page, and you will Log in every time you submit. (if you don't save your password)

    Select "Submit Game", clicking one of the four desired game choices will bring you to your files, the files desired are normally,...
    User, Documents, My Games, Sid Meier's Civ 5, Saves, Single
    ~ Select your Manual Saves for submission [1] and [4]

    Take the Turn Number of you Victory, and divide it by three (1/3 of the way through game)
    -Submit the "AutoSave" for that number as Submission [2] by going one more under "Single" game saves to "AutoSaves".
    -Submission [3] (2/3 of the way through) is double your [2] save, Select that Autosave.

    >Verify Box
    >Submit Game

    **Your 1/3 and 2/3 saves don't need to be perfect,...just somewhere near the number.
    *** You can Submit Manual Saves as your 1/3, 2/3 saves,...But unless your leaving the game,...Why? Just do the AutoSaves,...So much easier!
    **** Using a Enhanced User Interface is Permitted, and not considered a MOD (No MODs are permitted!)
