Was the game started as 1.05b?

Go to saved game and check the info file

D:\Storm over the Pacific Release1_03\data\pbem\name of saved game

Double click and scroll down to game version. Make sure it says 1.05b

Usually you can not update to a patch and use a saved game especially in PBEM.

Hi!

I had started the pbem game. We chose the Guad "A" scenario. I took the US and Joe the Japanese. I began the game and sent the file to Joe who made his moves and sent the file back. I was able to begin my turn with no trouble, but midway through my turn, while I was landing units the game froze and crashed. I began over again several times and I was only able to finish my landings once. For that time the game froze and crashed when I clicked on save.

I tried re-installing and repatching but that didn't help.

Thanks,

Gene

File sent late last night. I hope you find that it was only something stupid that I was doing wrong - which is entirely possible!

Thanks for looking into it.

Games works fine on two of my three computers (didn't check on the third yet), however I forwarded it to the programmers to take a look at that.
Will be back to you as soon as we will find (or not) what causes the problem.

shut off the DIVX or delete it from the game or rename it, The company that sells it keeps sending me patch's and updates and tells me it is a great media program, and the game is not even installed anymore Sounds like a deal between wasteland and whoever is responsible for that piece of crap.

madgamer, we have nothing to do with any media company.
AFAIK the divX is even not included into the installer, and I know that the codecs has been always an issue for customers. It looks like any movies should be added without any compression, but then it will make them just huge.

Also I think tha you should be able to switch off any pop ups from the program in its preferences. This is how it's usually works.

I know nothing of what you say not being a computer knowledgeable person. All I can say is in the Data folder of SotP there are 4 AVI files with the Divx logo on the bottom that are audio&video files. I consider these to be "media files" that is they are used to play audio&video programs within the game.
Whoever provides these Divx files they keep sending me updated and till I fixed it the program kept wanting to run various type of files like audio CD's and such. I have deleted the game and not understanding what you say makes little difference. I did find it funny that I went to the game's web site and downloaded the latest patch. Now the graphics for the intro play great but have no sound till the game starts, and even on my fast win 7 64 bit or my 32 bit Xp Pro system the game runs very slow which some long gaps
with no indication om the screen that the thing is running.

You most likely have a great game but its not my style and I am not fond of the graphics and some of the game routines as well. It does have some interesting design ideas however. This is just one persons opinion so don't let it ruin your day.

Could you please check the icons at any other of your .avi files?

Also you can just delete them, without any harm for the game.

If the game runs slow, you can go to the preferences and reduce movemnt/attack intervals.
