Multiplayer PBEM Bug - See your enemies cities and units

    I'm new to the forums so if this issue has come up already then please ignore it.

    I recently started a PBEM game and a few turns into it I went to load up the latest turn file. I accidentally pressed quickstart and a new game started up.

    Instead of quitting out to the main menu I loaded the game form within this game and was surprised to find I wasn't asked for my password.

    After having my turn I pressed space to finish expecting the usual Save and Exit window to appear. Instead I was greeted with full control of the next players civilisation! :eek:

    It seems to me pretty lame that you can so easily bypass the password protection on the file.

    And to top it all off when I emailed tech support advising them of this bug they sent me an email back saying that because I'm not in the US I need to contact my local agent for support ON THEIR 0900 NUMBER!!! After buying their game and trying to advise them of a flaw they want me to spend $1.99 a minute calling them to tell them about it? :mad:

    I've been a big fan of Civ since the first one but this latest one has left a really bad taste in my mouth... :cry: They have really screwed the pooch on this one.
