Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

FacMan invited me for the first PBEM fight:

we'll comment in this topic on specific matters concerning PBEM games

hmmmm... I do find the file, I open it....the game asks me for a password, write one and enter... then I get the name for the next file, hit 'ok' and then I'm thrown back to the menu....

can't get it to work....  cry

No, that's correct. Grijns The first two fiels are only for setting the password and exchanging basic data - file 3 will be your first actual turn.

It IS a bit confusing at first (just like my new car!), but once you have done it a couple of times, you get used to it.

As did I. No idea where he is and there's very little cover where I am, so moving out asap.

Koen sez: "what I meant is did you perform action before you sent me your 1st file? just curious"...Not with my first file, only made pword there.

I can't order my troop so I suppose I can only press the 'play' button... dunno for how long or such....  Onbeslist

pressed the red button and the game went from 30min to 29min in a flash.... got '?' from my enemy and ordering troops is now possible

gave orders and pressed red button again.... calculating the phase and now sending by email

files are quite big  Rollende ogen

Yes, file can become pretty big depending on number of units and action during turn... A little program called "Dropbox" can help alleviate any troubles you might have sending those files via e-mail. Try it - I did and it makes life so much easier! Grijns

Hey EG!
How does one get the DL'd turns from your opponent in a PBEM game into the correct folder/file? As of now, I must go to my DL folder and move the file to the correct location, then trash the old copy in the DL folder.

Actually, you don't have to do anything apart from moving the file you get into the "Incoming" folder and send the file you save from the "Outgoing " folder. Now here comes the trick: you don't need to rename anything (why would you want to, anyway?) but just hiot "Save" and you're good to go.

It is true, though, that you have to manually move the file you get sent into the "Incoming" folder, yes. No way of having that happen automatically, sorry.

OK, you answered my question. I haven't renamed anything, just looking for a shortcut to save a few steps. Thanks EG!

after a couple of times FF (I presume it's FF that does it) the 'incoming' folder opens automatically and I just have to push 'save'

you should put them in the 'game files'-'incoming emails' folder

where does your FF wants to store it? mine remembers where and guides me to it

All my DLs go to a Downloads folder, then I must manually move them to the inbound (CMBN) folder. FF hasnt learned on my computer.
