What game version are you on? From the Facebook pics it looks like a steam exe. Are you doing a standard PBEM or the Slitherine ++ system?

Can you give us an indication of what destination directory you tried to save it to? Maybe there was something unexpected about that in this case...

Thanks, Rob

In the screen shot above I was able to save my pbm file to my desktop. Some directories are blocked by Windows even though you can select them in this dialog.

Also, is your copy of Windows set to US English or something else? That might make a difference too. Thanks again, Rob

Can you save a single player game? Also can you check your Flashpoint.INI file for the save location that it shows?

Test another scenario if you can. EET is the only scenario with a comma in the name.

We have not been able to get the issue you have. Rob fixed a similar issue from 2.06 to 2.07 some folks had with EET and localizations because of the comma. We will keep digging.

ok, I've asked a friend to send me a pbm file to try another scenario. I'll update post attempt. I have screen shots etc, but you can only do one image per post here.
I am also popping them up on my facebook page, if you want to see them.

ok here is progress!
Pied Piper pbm file run from opponent.
I ran my session (moved one unit)
clicked thru pbem parameters screen and saved in *.pbm format successfully 002.pbm etc.

So I can return that to my opponent to see if it works.
Noteworthy that I was unable however to then execute a save file process, AFTER saving the pbm.

Yeah, I'm his buddy.
I was able to run the file he sent me too.

Mind you I'm still on 2.06 because the built in updater keeps dying while trying to download the update... can I do that manually?
I have the Matrix version.

There is a link on the main forum page for the 2.07 Update. If you are send the EET file it is probably getting corrupted. Get 2.07,rerun the turn and send the new PBEM file. That may be the entire issue here.

I have reproduced the problem with the Eyes, Ears and Teeth scenario (at last) and hope to have a fix shortly.

We just fixed this issue and tested it out. We are going to shoehorn this in to the 2.08 that we are checking and getting back to Matrix.

Thanks guys. We opted for another scenario. So when 2.08 comes out I hope to play that then!

Sorry for the glitch, hope your current game is a good one while you wait.
