Was just sending my latest PBEM to the opponent when there's this text "Beta has Expired". Then crash. Restarting the game it immediately crashes again. Playing a beta version on my W10, I went to my W7 where I have the game and latest patch installed, trying to open the game. Same result: this text, then crash. I can't even get to the menu.

This is extremely odd, since the computers are not linked in any way, have different OS and different versions of the game. It's past midnight in Sweden, so I'm off to bed, but thought it was worth a short note.

Anybody else having this problem?

All right, then the problem is not exclusively at my end. Maybe a virus affecting some part of the start-up, not being WarPlan-oriented, but triggering something else that WarPlan uses.

Well, off the sleep now.

I got the same message when I uploaded a turn just now.

EDIT: Tried to open a new turn. No crash but it won't let me into the game

I am having the same problem. I just started a single player game after a gap of four hours and I am getting the Beta has expired message and then the game logs off. Any suggestions?

So I tried using a Steam Key to see if the game runs through Steam. No joy. Same problem. Beta has expired. Game crashes. I suspect some dormant code is in need of quick removal.

I have the same problem.
I unistalled the game and deleted the related registry values. I reinstalled the game and the latest update but it did not work; I still get the same message: 'Beta has expired'.
Any suggestions?

If none of the updates is installed (game version 1.00.00) then there is no problem!

Awake again.

For whatever this clue is worth, the crash occurred roughly when going from monday to tuesday, probably at midnight, suggesting that it is somehow related to a date-line. After fiddling with it for 5-10 minutes, I went to my other computer and found that it had the same problem, even though I hadn't used the game there since downloading the last official patch.

I am not going to bring some breaking news to this thread, but here is the exact message I got when trying to launch the game :

"Options file corrupt or old version recreating with defaults
Beta has expired"

Quite frustrated, I un-installed and re-installed the game, worked fine with v1.00.00, then updated to latest official version and failed to launch getting only the "Bata has expired" message.

Tried on a different laptop, only to get the exact same result

Same problem here. Bought the game 5 days ago and got steamkey which i used.
Played yesterday just fine, started today early morning and says Beta is expired and then kicks me out of the game. Doesn't crash, just shuts down because of it.

Success! 8U1 fixed it.

At least on the W7. I will now download that to the W10 as well and try to restart our PBEM game.

In my case it helped to install the latest beta, which you can find here:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1dVFxgF7vu51jOplcie5ircBeE4fka9e1

Or maybe you prefer to wait for Alvaro's verdict. I have no idea what differences there are between Steam and Matrix.

Just tried to re-install v1.00.00, then upgraded to 8U1

Got the exact same error message (Beta has expired) than with 1.00.071 but the game didn't crashed so I tried to connect to the PBEM sever only to get a new error message :
"error in one element of JSON array. First key element of the array is numerical"

On the other hand, playing against AI is possible with 8U1

Well...I decided to try the Matrix version. Updated it with the auto update to version .71. I still get the same error message only this time it is upside down :)

Thanks for that. I hadn't come as far as patching the W10 yet. Will try to run PBEM on W7 instead.

EDIT: This answer was to guggy.

The upside-down image add some flavor to the mystery.

I get the same error. On W10 using the Steam default version and have never had any beta installed. In fact, I will never install a beta for this game if they are not pushed out through Steam. The days of manually extracting files should be a few years behind us by now.

Was thinking the same thing, but then he only have to wait 12 hours to have the issue fixed.
