From: Ottawa, Canada
I have 2 PBEMs going, along with an AI game (as I try to learn the Japanese economy). Each involves a different mod. I have sometimes messed up and sent the wrong game save to opponents. I am struggling a bit with how to keep things separate.
I have gone the route of separate full installs and separately named game files. This keeps two of my games separate. However, for one of the PBEMs that did not work. My "Bottlenecks" game file won't open...I get the Fatal 100 error. So I am running it in a game file that does work, but it has a different name, with a different game save file where there are other game saves. And I occasionally mess up, with the resultant time lost for both players as I get things sorted out
Looking for some advice.
First, is there any way to change the default game save destination after an install? Can I redirect my "Bottlenecks" saves to a unique directory file?
Second, what are your best practices regarding keeping several games separate from each other?
Third, why would some of my separate full installs work properly, and not others? I have tried the other suggested method of copying an installed game and renaming but can't seem to get this working.
If anyone has suggestions on these issues, I would be grateful.
