    Wait, what will the game actually be about?

    We're gonna play to win, according to the game? Are all victory options enabled? In single player I always quit when I dominate, I'm not used to playing all the way to the boring end.

    Should I be looking for a club each other on the head, happy backstabbing all-out warmongering game, or is there a chance things will evolve more peacefully? :)

    All victory conditions are enabled.

    I expect clubbing everyone on the head will be a good strategy though.

    File refuses to play; gives a very brief error message but I think it's corrupted. Please re-send.

    I've had saves not work first time I opened them too - but resent anyway.

    Might be worth rebooting if you still can't play it - should free up some memory.

    Still not working. I'll try re-booting. Do you want to send it to someone else to check it's not my computer?

    OK I've sent it to Hawklord to see if he can open it. Dunno how long it will take for his verdict though ;)

    Hawklord can open the save. Try a reboot then. Dunno what to do if you still can't open it...

    EDIT: See if you can get a screengrab of the error message - press print screen and then paste with ctrl-V into paint, save as a jpg and upload here.

    Still not working. I'm trying to get a screen-grab but it's like out-drawing a gringo.

    EDIT: here we go... 'the save file you have selected is protected to ensure that the assets you have in your mod folder have not been changed'. Anybody?

    Can you open any other BtS saves?

    I'll send you another of mine to test...

    Have you applied a patch recently?

    Or are you not on 3.19, and has an Admin password been applied recently, like since last turn?

    I didn't do anything with any passwords.

    A patch or dodgy mod might be the issue though. I've sent him my last turn from another PBEM see if he can open that.

    Not working. Try a re-install perhaps? I think it was something like a map script I put in

    Yep try a reinstall - sorry!

    Did the other save not work either?

    EDIT: If you know what map script you recently installed you could probably move it temporarily... see if that works.
