I have a question about PBEM.

Can I use both Drop Box & Google Drive at the same time? I have two other people who both use
different programs and I want to battle both.

Thanks in advance!

Ed

When you set it up it wants a specific location to send the files. So, if you wanted to do both you would have to change the setting after each game turn. Would take only a few minutes.

You couldn't do both at the same time without changing the settings.

Good Hunting.

As MR said, you would need to remember to change your email directory before playing your turn, the alternative is for you to "host" both players on your dropbox (or google) drive.

by the way, I've not tried this with google drive, does it work as smoothly with PCO as dropbox?

The setting you need to change is in the configuration settings.

Thanks
rick

Steve: That is what I was thinking too. I can change it between game turns.

Rick: Google Drive has worked great! I have played 3 games and not an issue.
I fire up PCO and the file is there. I play the turn, save and the other side gets the turn.

Thanks to both of you for the fast replies!

PS: I tried playing CM1 again and after playing PCO, I don't know why I went back

I haven't played CM anything for more than 3 years now. I haven't played PCO since May. Once the current project I'm working on is completed I will though!! By then my brain will need a rest!

Good Hunting.
