Problem with game not loading

Postby mstjulien19 » Sat Nov 07, 2015 12:30 am

Gentlemen,

I'm nearing the completion of a match in the Lt.'s Cup. However, as we near the end I can no longer load the PbEM files. My side won't load the replay, instead giving me an ERROR READING FROM REPLAY FILE. Then just puts me at a blank map with only 1 visible hex. Same goes if I try to skip the replay.

I have tried using batch files to delete temp files....no joy.

My opponent is using HPS Gettysburg while I am using JTS Gettysburg. But we've played like 15 turns with no problem up to this point.(Stephenson's Depot scenario)

My other PBEM files from my training seem to load fine. We can't figure it out.

Has anyone else experienced this and been able to solve it?

If you'd like you can send me the file with your password and I'll see if it opens for me, will determine if the problem is on your end or with the file. Otherwise these are the usual suspects.

1. Has either of you recently updated your game, if you aren't both using the same version this can cause problems.

2. Have you tried having your opponent resend the file, sometimes they do get corrupted in transit, especially if you're sending the .bte file unzipped.

3. If none of this helps I normally ask my opponent to redo his turn, sometimes the replay part of the file gets corrupted when he's doing the turn.

Gen. Miller,

I'd be glad to let you try it. What e-mail address shall I send it to?

Gen. Miller,

I have looked at the roster and obtained your e-mail at krmiller_usa@yahoo.com, which I will send the file to. Thanx for your help.

Has this been resolved??

I THINK the versions are compatible, i.e. V2.0 HPS and the Version from JTS.

Normally a blank map indicates a missing .map file, it is the first thing loaded by the scenario file and if the problem is in the oob file you will normally have missing or no visible units.
Since the scenario had a non stock map file but used a standard oob and pdt file I thought that was their problem. I told him to try downloading and installing the scenario files again and once he reloaded them everything started working. Last I heard they were back to playing.
