Did you try reinstalling the game and clearing registries already? If there was anything corrupted, that should fix it...
Okay, I did everything you recomended, can now boot up the game, but the saved turn 11 you sent me gives me this message when I open it:
"The user is not authorized...."
It does show, though, the allied player as being loaded up.
UPDATE: And it shows the same message for my second PBEM game also. I am the allied player in both games, but won't let me access the turn for both games, despite showing the allied player as being up.
Man is this screwy.
the authorised message is because you're missing the btruser.dat file from the \dat folder. If you have a backup, you can copy it in, otherwise you will need to PM me your save games (and the name of the userid you use) so I can rebuild them for you. Creating a new one won't help, as it uses a random signature in the file you need to match.
I will have a "backup" button in the next version to save the file, and might even put in a better hash system to create a file from scratch using your own password, but that might take more effort. The backup system should work.
Thank you for your help, but how would I know if and where I have the backup to btruser.dat?
I guess I should assume it's gone.
Also, is there somewhere in this forum I can go and read about what not to do in the future about any other known issues, so I don't make this mistake again?
Please send me your e-mail address so I can send you the files.
