Is there a means to conduct multiple games/matches using different versions of the game ?

ie, can you have multiple versions of the game on a single PC (say released version and a beta version) for two different matches without one corrupting the other ?

Yes you can, but in the PBEM you have in progress you must play with the one you have created (official or Beta)

* note: even if you make a mistake, load your turn in the wrong version, nothing happens (it has ever happened to me) but you would not fight on equal terms.

So do you need two independent installs of the game, one for each version of the game (assuming you have two matches at different versions) .....

Basically, I have only the official version installed and no current pbem games going.... I have an offer for a pbem game using the beta 10u3 version ..... How do I add this for a match while still retaining my capability of adding another using the current official released version ?

I am in a pbem game using the 10u23 beta and tried playing an AI game using my Steam version 1.091 on the same computer and on the PBEM game my production screen locked up when I tried to purchase a unit and the only way out was to hit the escape button. I then entered the production screen again and it was still locked, so I was unable to build a mech unit in late 39 for the spring against France on that turn. Was it a one-off? I don't know, but I had this same trouble way back with version 1.07 or 1.08 and an update fixed it. We were on turn 7 before this happened just now. I decided to remove my Steam version as I had a beta version PBEM going. The worst would be if I'm the only one experiencing this problem.

Personally I have the steam version installed, I made a copy where I installed the Beta, then I have 2 warplan.
If I want to start a game with an official version, I create a game from the Steam version and then I always play from here, and to play Beta I create a game from the Beta version and always load the spins from Beta.

I can play in hotseat mode at the same time in Beta and official, I don't usually play Pbem in one while I play Pbem in the other (I'm afraid of messing up Pbem). I really don't know if it's possible.

Currently there are no data corruptions between versions. The difference will be different scenario sets and scripts

So how do I go about playing multiple matches with multiple versions ? Separate installs in different locations on my PC ?

You can install the game from X
Then create a 2nd folder in the same directory as the 1st one.

like if you have C:\games\Warplan

Now you copy paste the entire folder and get
C:\games\Copy of Warplan

Rename the folder

C:\games\Warplan Cool New Beta Version.... or whatever

They take the beta and copy/override in the new folder.

Run each version. They both check the same registry.
