I'm in a PBEM game using DBB-B with extended maps and stacking limits. We started our game using DBB-B version 13. If one player upgrades to DBB-B version 14 during the game, does this make any difference? It is my understanding that the version matters at game start, and that the data is set in the saved game file after that. I do know that we both still have the same versions of the map files.
If this is an issue, is it remedied by both players upgrading to the same version?
We've continued play with one side having version 13 and the other having version 14, and haven't seen any side effects, other than getting a message that the database was updated on the first turn after the update was done.
It does make a difference. Some of the updates are data error fixes (benign), some are substantive changes to data. At times, different substantive scenario data sets can make the game go unstable (maybe not today, or maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of your life). It is mandatory that both players use the same revision version of a scenario (whether Babes, or RA, or Stock, or whatever).
If one player updates to a newer version, the other must do so as well. Talk to your opponent before doing this, get their agreement, and do it simultaneously. Otherwise Baron Samedi will rise, and Le Bon Temps will definitely not Rouler.
