I wonder if the problem is trying to 'save' a pbl as such ? If Klink has a resolution, terrific.
Here's another way -- a bit more fuss to set up, but works for.
In my saves folder, I build a folder for an active game, and if there are ongoing active PBEM and PO games, I have a folder labelled PO and one for PBEM.
And in each of them, there is a folder for each game, labelled by scenario,and player (or date if it's against the PO), and side.
So inside my Anzio 1KM folder, I'll have a Anzio_17Jul10_Axis folder for a PO game started last July where I am playing as the German, and in the PBEM folder there's a Anzio_Telumar_Allies folder.
Inside the PBEM folder, there's
folders. Incoming and Outgoing only have the pbl's, and I label those in the manner
Scenario_Side_Turn --- Anzio_Allies_T17. If I were to have multiple PBEMs with the same scenario at the same time, I'd throw a start date or other identifier after the Anzio tag to differentiate things.
Inside Sal there are my sals after I open an Incoming pbl. And I usually have 3 or 4 sals per turn -- I get interrupted, and even when I am not interrupted, I get confused and need to walk away and start drinking. (coffee,usually)
So Sal has Anzio_Allies_T17A(B,C,...) and when I return, I start up a saved game (just like against the PO) using the A or B or whatever is the latest sal. (Note, saving to a sal will shut down TOAW just as efficiently as finishing a turn.)
When I do finish a turn, and TOAW prompts me to save the pbl, I just navigate to the Outgoing folder, and label the finished turn as above. Later I get to attach it, email, etc.
Here I insert a VERY LARGE THANK YOU to all the old-timers who shared thoughts on saving and labelling turns in threads here and over at GS. Thanks, gents -- it's saved me many headaches.
Back to the organizing,
I usually scoop the sitreps out of the main folder whenever - just as a clean-up. Usually, I'll review a text sitrep when I get a new pbl. Notes to myself, jpegs, other junk just gets dumped in the game folder (Anzio_Telumar_Allies). Oh, and the EOT save will get saved to Outgoing automatically -- I just clean those up whenever.
This has worked for me -- as I said, my headaches come from my mistakes playing the game. If you want some illustrations, email me. HTH.
