Hi,

Currently in a game with Hartmann301, but I am unable to receive his turn on PBEM (turn 23).

Hi HamburgerMeat,

Can you provide any more details as to the error here? For example, do you see the turn in your listing of available turns? If so does it simply not load?

Any more information here will be helpful to better understand the issue.

Also, can you provide the ChallgengeID as well?

Thanks,
Hubert

Hi Herbert,

I'm Hartmann301, his opponent. He sent me turn 22 and I played it. I sent him 23 and a day or so later noticed that his next turn was listed without receiving any email. After loading the turn I realized it was not 24 but 22 again. The only difference is the replay went very fast.

Hope that tells you something.

Challenge ID = 117447
Turn number = 22

Also, under My Games, the scenario name and the names of the players are in italics

Hi Gentlemen,

Just so I understand, is the turn playable again and you can just start from turn 22? Or is it a case of the wrong turn showing on your side, i.e. your opponents turn?

It's a bit confusing and any extra info will help me to sort it out. For example, if it is showing in Italics this normally shows a turn in progress that is not yet complete.

If this is the case, I would simply recommend finishing out the turn / replaying 22 if that makes sense.

If it is something else, let me know and we can go from there,
Hubert

Hi Hubert,

The turn is unplayable for me (I am the Allied player). It is showing in italics and is in red. Not sure if it's in green on Hartmann301's end.

The best I can do in this case is to restore the previous turn on the server using the server tools, hopefully this does the trick. Let me know.

I'm beginning to think the old way was more reliable.

You can still do it from the "Hotseat" configuration.

Just zip up the file and attach it to an email. Simple, easy, and no need for the server, but replays are enabled.

It is in green italics on my end...but I played the turn, finished and sent. How else could I have exited the game?

Green italics means the turn is saved, partly (?) complete but not finnished.

Perhaps you hit the quit option instead of the red arrow turn end button.

Tey and open it and when done hit the red end of turn button
