Hi,

I used Cmd-S to save a multiplayer game with a friend. The save file is in the save directory, but when I try to load it, I can only load the save files from the autosave directory. And if I copy our save game to the autosave directory, the file can not be found in the autosave files when trying to load the game. What am I doing wrong?

You have to add autosave_ to the front of the file name, and move the save to the Auto folder, then and only then will the MP load save dialog box see the save.

In our MP games with a friend we have found that it is easier to just configure the game to autosave every turn.

When we want to end the game for that session, we just press 'end turn' and next session start with the latest autosave.

This is also good because of the frequent gamecrashes and network connection drops.

In any case - no need to rename or copy save game files.
