I am trying to start a PBEM vs. Greyjoy. We are both using the latest Beta, version ending in 1108r9, dated 1/21/2012

Greyjoy is starting the game as Japanese. When he send file to me, I receive an immediate "Saved Game Failed to Load!" error message. Greyjoy is able to load it normally on his end.

As a test, I sent him a test game as Japan; Greyjoy was able to open that file normally as Allies

GJ sent from a different account, and I saved to a different slot. Failure each time.

GJ sent a test file, to see if his original was corrupted; that one failed

So, it seems to work if I start the game, but I cannot read files that GJ starts

Myself or Greyjoy can send the file, please PM both and we'll forward it

Yes, it's very very strange...
After i end the 1st turn as player one, the file gets saved. Then i try to load it as player two and it works perfectly (it asks me the player 2 password and the game loads perfectly).
The test save sent me by Q-Ball works perfectly too. No differences in patches or other versions signaled...

A mistery to me

Q-ball are you still using the pwsdll file, you would have loaded for our DBB game. If you are, you will have to load the pwsdll file that came with the latest save.

Wait...i think i misunderstood.... Q-Ball already has the right pwsdll file...the one for DBB with extended map.... if not, i would not have read his test save file.....right?

Oh, God, i hate computers

Yes you're right, and if you have different pwsdll files, you should get a message telling you that.

I think then maybe you could have a corrupted save file, watch you could test by trying another test save.

We've tried a lot of different saves.... everything that is sent by me it doesn't work for him
Now we're trying using a save file sent to me by NY59 for the lessons he gave me last week...if Brad is able to read it, then the problem is related with me...if not, i don't know what to do

Have you tried a reinstall of the latest patch into your game.

I've reinstalled beta a couple times, but did NOT install a post-1/21 patch. That might be it.

Where is that patch?

Here is the link. http://www.matrixgames.com/products/351/downloads/

You need to install the game, run the update, then put the MP exe and dll in the main directory. Load the mod scenario and required art files and you should be ready to go.

How about one of you is running the "MP" version versus the other running the standard version?

I'm running the MP version and Q-Ball is running the same version...in fact i can read his saved files without any problems....it's just that he cannot read mines

The latest beta, Brad, is the one you (and I) already have installed, dating 21 Jan 2012.

I bet QBall is not doing the MP version correctly.

IIRC - make a shortcut to the MP exe on desktop (set parameters). Change the name of the MP dll in the beta 2 folder to pwsdll.dll.

OR

copy the MP exe and the MP dll into the main game folder (change the MP dll name) and there you go ...

Could be....looking in the Beta2 folder, there are 2 pwsdll files. One is the standard pwsdll.dll file, the other is the MP one.

I assume, then, I have to delete or write over the original pwsdll.dll file, and use the MP one?

(EDIT: I tried exactly that, and the load still failed)

And What executable are you using ? Sure it is the MP exe & not the normal one ?

Greyjoy sent me a turn to get tracker running last week and I got it working on both Tracker and in WITP...

PM sent.

I sent this picture to Brad ...

Well I can open it and do the turn. But there is something a little confusing. I thought the MP versions was the 8Q7 MP as you can see on the top. But then 8r9 is asked for when loading. I think GreyJoy might have saved under the regular patch (not the MP version, but is using the MP dll ?? )

I copied the dll and MP exe into the rgular folder - changed the dll name and made a shortcut to desktop ...

Also forgot to say - there is also another exe which increases air combat turns which is also MP... but it was named the same iirc. You guys are going to have to make sure you have the same versions.

This is very weird...

Here's a couple of screenshots....

What i notice is that the date of the MP application i'm using is 21 jan 2012 (directly found in the latest beta patch pubblished by Micheal in the beta pacth thread), while Damian's one has a previous date....

On the top is the MP showing (re my pic), also the dll looks much older too ... Is it the MP dll ?

You need to co-ordinate files. MP with extra passes V without and versions. Plus the correct dll.

I'd be sending Brad both files. Remember gmail doesn't like exe's.

eddit - maybe I used an old patch, but the problem holds the same... dll and exe mis-match

mmmm....i've always played with Rader with these settings, and we never had any problems....we kept upgrading and everything worked fine.

However i now put the MP dll file updated to the 21.01.2012 and renamed it without the "MP"...the game runs smooth and when i load the saved file i sent to Q-Ball (so it asks me for player 2 pw) it doesn't warn me about a different version used....everything works for me...

That's probably going to be fine now... Just have to check QBall has the same versions and you're on you way ;-)

Finally!
