HiHi

Eric is on the case but in the meantime here is a C&P from another thread to act as a warning re the 'Combine PBEM files' process.

HiHi

OK here’s what I think the prob is and this can act as a warning for those who Merge the files in future games.

The whole merge turn must be done as a continuous process, from ‘combine PBEM files' to ‘End Game’.

So, if for example Visitors turn up, the Dog has puppies or the Lady of the house demands full on instantaneous ‘Fun & Frolics’ or whatever, you can’t just ‘Save’ the file as you would with normal turns and come back later to complete the turn, you have to go back and start again at ‘Combine PBEM files'.


All the Best
Peter

Ha! finally got it.

Below and the 2 screenshots are C&P from earlier games, we all have probs getting to grips with Merging at first so don't Fret about it, "Good Luck and Have fun"

Peter

Just in case you ain't done Merging before below is a C&P of how to go about it. Screenshots show what you need to have ready to select before, and the after showes them all highlighted, to do that you need to use the 'Ctrl', not 'Shift as is normal for sequential highlighting.

Screenshot 1 below, will have to do 2nd as seperate post.

Remember you must do the whole Merge sequence in one go from clicking on;

'Combine PBEM files' on the Main screen.
Click 'Open'.
Select Spain from menue.
Enter password for Spain.
Do your turn.
then 'End turn'.

What I do then is 'Exit the game compleatly, then open up again and go check that things have moved etc. etc.

All the Best
Peter
