OK, first of all, the .sav and .dat files should go in the \Save folder, so when you click "Load Game" you can select your game save. The .pbm game files (human and AI files from the other player's \commout folder) should go in your \commin folder. When you open your game from the save, you then need to advance through all of the other player phases to get to your phase. See step #8 for host in the user manual instructions on page 18, step #7 for client on page 19:
As Host: 8. Next, click the “Load Email Turn File” button found on the top menu bar and load all Major Power
turn files that preceded your turn and then setup your forces or load a saved setup file.
As Client: 7. If it is not your turn, click the “Load Email Turn File” button found on the top menu bar and load
any Major Power turn files that precede your turn. When it is finally your SETUP PHASE turn,
setup your forces or load a saved setup file.
Based on the number of new players getting into PBEM games, I have considered clarifying the User Manual instructions and I am open to suggestions. One clarification is that players should be exchanging zipped files to avoid possible data corruption. Other than that, the v1.22 updated User Manual dated 3/20/2018 in both the \Manuals and \Data\docs folders provides accurate instructions. If we can make this better, let me know. At some point I could put together a pdf tutorial with step-by-step instructions and screenshots. Maybe that would help.
