CLAIMED IN THE NAME OF SENETHRO!!!!1111ONE
I have PMed you your passwords.
The turn order as I remember it was.
Some of those email providers are noted as being less than reliable with some file attachements. Shout if you want an invitation to Gmail.
Turn attached. Maia to play. Further editing later.
I hope you're all patched and clear on the rules. If any of you want to practice in a PBEM environment I can throw the tutorial I made your way.

Nice job Senethro I always wondered what the inside of the Aki-Zetas sugar walls were like. heh
So we are SMACX.
Did I do right by NOT pressing the 'turn complete' button?
Anyway, I liked your introduction. Though their maybe some copyright questions down the road. heh-heh
Not to be greedy, but I'd love an invitation to the gmail BETA.
I sent you an invitation. You can send me the turns to that email adress instead of posting them here Maia, I'll notice it earlier.
You do have to hit "end turn". A popup will come that asks my pwd and has a button "save & exit". Choose save & exit. When you don't "end turn", it's still your turn, and I can't play.
Oh, and rename the game to something like "furlings-next player-year" orso when you save (and zip it ).
a PBEM tutorial? how would that work? with AIs? or alone??
dont get me wrong. im curious and (of coz) need to learn so would you throw it my way? (and try not to hit me...)
Are the email addresses in the wrong order? Shouldn't it be the individual's name, followed by the @ sign, followed by the server name instead of the reverse order?
Congratulations Detrius, you spotted my ever so elegant deliberate mistake.
Did you know that this is what marks the difference between your wonderful biology and the binary limited perception of a machine or piece of code?
There are those out there who would steal and pilfer your email address for their own ends. It would not be profitable for them to manually search the internet for your address so they use various software to collect all things that resemble an email address.
Few people want the privacy of their inbox invaded and so it is standard practice to disguise email addresses.
You can see that the email address is swapped around the @, but Mr. Script K1|>|>13s l33t apz cannot. Safety while hiding in plain sight.
just a status report:
maia has sent me 3 files yet, but they were always still maia's turn, so I couldn't continue.
Still waiting to receive the next try.
If I knew what was wrong I'd tell ya.
The first time, I didn't hit my "turn complete" button. I saved & exited through the way I am used to: teh control panel- bottom left.
That was no good. I found your help in the forum and deduced this.
I loaded it back into my save file and re-opened. None of my moves had registered. I made my moves as best as I could recall, again. This time I hit the turn complete button and the "save & exit" prompt came up. I pressed the "save & exit" button and imagined it was good enough to be emailed to you as an attachment.
This is what I did. I hopoe it helps you but mostly Senethro as he is our Watcher in this "Who are the Furlings?" planetscape.
USe my email whenever you please and thanx for the gmail invite.
I am gmail.com@jwpeek but use my yahoo.com@smoke_henke_kelner.
I don't think you would have appreciated my gitmogag@gmail addy so I just calmed down a little.
much love to my peeps,
8th post from the bottom is Senethros Tutorial
The rest of the thread is informative except for the big chunks of dialogue where Senethro and I are gabbing.
Maia, the problem is you sent me your first file 3 times. All files were completely identical.
So, while you did play the turn again, you somehow sent me your first save again.
You can easily check this, before you send the file, try to open it yourself. If it doesn't ask for my password, it's the wrong file.
btw: you might have noticed I answered one of your questions in Senethro's tutorial thread...
I opened the file that Maia attached to that post and found it to be Maia's first turn with no units moved or settings changed.
Anyways, just thought I'd say that I won't be back until Sunday. It's a long weekend here in Canada so I'm going to hang out with friends.
I didn't receive any tries from maia anymore, and I'm off for the weekend too.
I see what I've been doing now. I am sorry to have held everybody up.
When I saved earlier the game threw it into the parent directory of my copy and not back into the "save" folder created when you first install the game. When PJay told me to rename it I obviously didn't find it in the 'save' folder and had to do a "Find' on my PC. And then scamper through a huge bone pile of files to finally dig it up and slap that puppy into an email to PJay.
My apologies again.
Have a great weekend to all sentient beings in North America, Europe, Asia and the world. May there be Peace On Earth.
Everything worked OK now.
I'll send the save to Maia.
I was a little surprised to see the map revealed though, but I don't have a problem with it.
K PJay -welcome back.
Ummm? What? Has the turn been round once already? Why are you sending it to Maia?
Turn 2102 to Bear. I'm also wondering why the turn started at 2102.
Got an email from PJayTycy but no attachment. I received a link for a zip/unzip utlity that I asked him for. He may have thought and spoke differently.
Going out to enjoy the fireworks in downtown Ra-cha-cha.
as expected. m$ hotmail doesnt work for most attachments (as *.zip are such uncommon files ).
well. could you from now on send it to web.de@Jan.Moschinski ?
that one will work. but dont sell my email adress
i will be able to make my turn then.
Why not sign up for a Yahoo or Gmail account then?
Turn 2102 resent
sorry, ofcourse I did send it to Detrius and not maia :-)
i didnt get anything yet.
could you send it to the new email adress i gave earlier?
The year is 2102 because if I set passwords in the scenario editor, for some reason the scenario editor remains available to open in subsequent turns.
So, what has happened is that I played your first turn for you, in which I did precisely nothing and set you building a scout patrol.
Didn't enter the correct email address when I sent it to you. Yahoo is acting up though so I'll send it tomorrow.
