Problems in PBEM...

Post by barbarossa2 »

Is anyone else getting major problems on the economy/trade screen when they try to execute their PBEM turns? Whenever I open the file and try to do trade, I repeatedly get the "microsoft orchestra strike" sound, a flipping mouse cursor, and much of the functionality of the screen disappears (for instance, the advisor's text indicating good and bad trades disappears). This problem is repeatable and happens whenever I re-open the file to try to redo my turn.

Not had this problem, B, but I don't think I've adjusted my trade routes since you joined the game (bar one trade to a neutral).

I get the MS orchestra strike sound, but always when I exit the game. Not had a problem in game yet.

It seems that I can sort of jerry rig a way aound the the problem by rebooting my computer and loading CoG:EE first thing and doing my turn in there immediately before doing anything else on my computer.

Have you tried shutting off other applications and changing the settings in virtual memory?
