Your steps are correct. When playing PBEM games,there is no way you can view the other side because you'd get an error message saying something like user not authorized to view turn on this computer.If you can view the other player's side, then Redmarkus must have sent you a file from a game he started under the hot-seat option.
Redmarkus should be performing these steps when he reveives the turn from you http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2370911&mpage=1&key=�
The Raiding Player
(1) As the Raiding Player, When you receive the saved game from the Defending Player, copy it into your DAT/SAVE folder (after unzipping it, if necessary). Once you've copied it into your DAT/SAVE folder, open it up normally by going under Load Saved Game in the Start-up Screen.
(2) As soon as you open it up, it will begin to load, and then you will be prompted with the Multiplayer Screen to type in a Handle ID (just like in Defending Step 4 above). Type in an ID number/name and as soon as you finish, the game will continue to load.
(3) Once the game loads, you are taken into a Briefing Phase. Since this is the first Briefing Phase, it will be blank. Press "END PHASE" to enter your Raid Planning Phase.
(4) When you reach the Raid Planning Phase, plan your day's attacks. When you are finished, select "END PHASE" and the game takes you to the Save Game Screen. Save the game and then send it back to the Defending Player.
(5) When the Defending Player receives the file back, he should open it under Load Game, and then the Reaction Phase begins. The Defending player conducts the Reaction Phase normally, then his next Movement Phase, and then he will send the file back to the Raiding player, etc. until the game is finished.
The multiplayer button is only used for the person starting the game.Whenever receiving turns in PBEM games, all you have to do to open the turn is go to load saved game under Eagle Day if you're playing the Battle of Britain scenario and select the turn you recieved.
