    Cedayon... now I know what you meant by not being very good... what you don't realize is that it's a perfect strategy for CtP... now it's time to see if it works in SMAC I suppose.

    As always, will play after work. I wonder if I'll ever be able to turn that the other way...

    I sent after my post about the CtP style of playing... been away for Easter so it might have come back to me?

    resending... now... crap... I'll have to replay it... didn't save the sent file...

    I'll play it shortly and get it out... pardon the replay warning.

    faction files?

    Was I supposed to download anything extra before playing?

    Not really. Just if you want to see different leader faces and all that. The edited text of our faction files is saved in the save file itself.

    Are you sure? That might explain why TKG has a problem... if you used custom factions, especially.

    I wish I could help you, but I've never got such an error in my entire "SMAC career". Do all other save files still work?

    FlameFlash has Mac!?! Well in that case it's rather obvious there are problems. Mac isn't compatible with other PC's right? I find it odd then FlameFlash had no problems with opening the file.

    I don't think we can find a solution for this problem...

    another SMAC(X) player, wgabrie, has a MAC as well, and I have never experienced any problems in any of our common games as far a translating the game back and forth (although I have never tried with custom factions before). If you want, send me the file, and I'll see if I can open/play the turn, and maybe that'll narrow down our problem.

    I've played PBEM in SMAC/SMAX for quite some time with PC users with no problems whatsoever, so it's not because of Mac-ness.

    If somebody could send me the edited .txt files for the factions, I'll try playing the turn again... IMHO, that's the problem.

    What's your e-mail address? I'll forward my turn with the password and TKG, if you could forward your turn to him as well, we'll see if Mac-ness has anything to do with it.

    My E-Mail address was posted earlier in this thread, however it is [email protected]xxxxx minus the x's.
    Also, have you considered that the file was simply corrupted in transit, and that a resend might work as well? If I could get a virgin resend, that might also help, too.

    And if Dale DOES choose self exile, then 'poly just lost another one of their star gaming contributors, and that's a pity, since this is still a gaming site.

    TKG's copy, as well as my copy of the turn sent. I'm using the latest version of DropZip... are you using the latest unzipping app, TKG?

    I received the turn and played a couple of rounds of the game, and had no problems with it.
    Also, I have been contacted by War of Art for taking over Cyurus's faction in this game. Which faction is this, so that I send him the right password?

    Did you mean Cedayon's place? He's who I took over for...

    Did you also try loading the turn that I sent TKG? How did it work?

    ok this was my fault. FF's .zip was called "rftp-tkg.sav.zip" so when i unzipped it, it made a folder called "rftp-tkg.sav". the game thought the folder was the save so that's why it couldn't open it. a rename was all it took
