I'm playing PBEM for the first time. It's against an old friend.

Is there some way for me to complete only part of my turn, then save the game, and then return later to the game to complete my turn from where I left off?

I used the search feature but found no answer.

Thanks.

Refer to:

3.3 resume play by e-Mail (pBeM) Game
Clicking on the Resume PBEM Game button brings up a stand-ard Load window. Select your saved game and click “Open” to play.If you choose to play by e-mail, the game will automati -cally prompt you to create PBEM game files for your opponent at the appropriate times. These files are similar to saved game files, but they include some additional information and have a “PBL” file extension. Send the PBEM file to your opponent when your Turn is finished. You may continue your Turn using the PBEM file he sends back in response. Another save file is simultaneously created when the PBL file is written; this file will have the same file name that you gave the PBL file, but will have a “SAL” file ex-tension instead. DO NOT send this SAL file to your opponent, unless you want to give him some free intelligence. This file is for your use only, should you wish to view the status of the battlefield at the conclusion of your Turn. You may load this file at any time by selecting Resume Saved Game from the first control screen displayed when TOAW III is started.When you begin the game you will be asked for a password. You will need this password to continue the game from the PBEM file returned by your opponent. Keep your password secret from your opponent to prevent him from viewing information that should not be available to him. You will be given an opportunity to view a playback of your opponent’s Turn when you load a PBEM game.

There are certain restrictions on PBEM games. Variable Initiative
(see section 10.1) is locked out, so the order of play will never
change during a Scenario. You will need your opponent’s password if you decide to end the Scenario early, so it is only possible to end a Scenario if both players agree. Finally, while the undo
function is functional during PBEM games it does leave a record in the playback. If you undo an action in a PBEM game you should be prepared to explain your reasons to your opponent!


Klink, Oberst

Thanks, Colonel Klink ! I wish that you could hear my imitation of Klink saying "Schuuuuuuuuultz ! " and waving his baton. It's quite good.

I had indeed previously read that passage from the manual before I posted my questionl, but, alas, the solution did not sink in. I will re-read that paragraph and very carefully and see if I can figure it out.

Thanks again !

Champagne,

Just save the game as you normally would. Load it back in as you normally would. It is only when you end your turn that the PBL file is created.

Best wishes,
Steve
