any way we can get like a schedule sorta thing going? so maybe we can play through the turns faster?
I set it up so i get a text when the turn shows up in my email for lepercolony.

I just tried the new save file Nick sent me and it came up Hazat again.

Also, as regards the schedule, I don't think that would accomplish much. We are probably scattered all across the globe, and even if we weren't, we all have lives and other commitments.

Personally I think (this little save hiccup aside) that we're making pretty good time.

Leper, are you saving it right? Nick, are you sending it right? Something's going wrong here.

I play my turn usually as soon as I possibly can, since I love late game EFS. This game, at least until this turn issue, has been pretty brisk and a very good pace.

All I ask is that if anyone doesn't have time to play the turn anymore to let us know and give the person after them their password, that way we can replace him. It sucks to get deep into a game, months of effort, all for someone to randomly disappear.

I've been doing it the exact same way as I did the last seven times. Download save from gmail. Unzip to the EFS save folder, run EFS, load game. Only this time it comes up Biggie of House Hazat. Since I don't know the password, I can't even get past the log in screen. But even if I could, it would just take me to his turn.

I haven't heard of anything like this before. Send both turn8.sav and the copy to kebooo@hotmail and I'll see if it's the same thing for me. In the mean time, I'd suggest replaying your turn and trying this all again.

The turn opens as Hazat for me as well. Have you tried manually going into the SAV folder and looking for the file, moving it to say, desktop, then trying to e-mail from there?

Alternatively, you could try reinstalling/re-unzipping the game somewhere else and playing the turn there.

I have all of my earlier turns, prehaps we should restart a few turns-ago and continue from there? if the same problem occurs with this old save file, then we know its his software (for whatever reason), because we have already processed that turn once, and it was succesful.
alternatively, if the pops up at the same point as it did this time (a few turns into the 'new' game) then we know our universe is corrupt somehow.
finally, we might just not see the error ever again. hopefully.

i think this will yeild the most information, and provide the quickest route for the game to continue.

I will send turn-7 to Li-halan?
