Sarsfield_slith -> OK- just what exactly is going on re 'Server Error'? (1/12/2019 6:50:46 PM)

Guys is it me, is it the system or is something wrong with the Universe?

I accept challenges, my opponent sends me their turn, I open the file

and what I get is 'Server Error'![:@]


Is this endemic or is there a way round this roadblock?

Thanks if you can.[:)]

This is the message you'll get when you're trying to use the wrong version of TOAW to read your file.
It's trying to tell you to use the other executable to run it. You'll get this message when you try
to use 4.0.2.21 to load a file created with 4.1.0.4




Sarsfield_slith -> RE: OK- just what exactly is going on re 'Server Error'? (1/12/2019 7:53:43 PM)

Ok thanks

- so I need to update to the latest version then?





larryfulkerson -> RE: OK- just what exactly is going on re 'Server Error'? (1/13/2019 12:07:12 PM)

That's what I would suggest.




Sarsfield_slith -> RE: OK- just what exactly is going on re 'Server Error'? (1/14/2019 4:59:00 PM)

Thanks

Well I have just done that and now I have an even Bigger problem!

Now I cant access anything at all

When I try to open for a game I get this:

Opart 4.exe - System Error

X The code execution cannot proceed because steam_api.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.


This is crazy at this stage.

Sarsfield_slith -> RE: OK- just what exactly is going on re 'Server Error'? (1/14/2019 5:20:34 PM)

Nope - no one told me I had to!

Thanks for the info anyway

Without having to read through two full threads of techie stuff I am of a mind to proceed as follows

[BTW I think I installed v21 and what I should have done is installed v20 1st]


I am going to remove TOAW IV from the system and then reinstall the game, update to v20 and then to v21


Does that sound right?


Thanks if you can.[:)]

This is proof I am not alone in the universe...[:)]

Just keep trying stuff. It'll work eventually..

Uninstalling and reinstalling and doing both of the
latest patches ( .20, .21 ) ought to do it. If that doesn't work then you'll probably have to create the new folders in the "Program Files(x86)" chain manually. I'm just guessing because my install went flawlessly. Sorry, don't mean to rub it in.

Well Folks Mission Accomplished and I am now all up to date and able to
play PBEM![:)]

Is this what you do? Really? Send me an email next time you have a problem. I'll try to help you but you'll have to describe the problem in excrusiating detail.

Good for you. Now all you need is an opponent. I mean to encourage you to play a real human instead of Elmer because Elmer will permit you to make bad habits in your gameplay.

That is what I do actually..:)

Albert Einstein supposedly said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”

Albert obviously never had a computer. [:D]

Albert was never happily married. I'm just saying....
