"Need a little help from my friends"

Post by Alvin Baker » Fri Dec 01, 2017 5:37 pm

I'm having problems getting play started in second round of the tournament. When I receive game files from Stuart Wilson and click on replay I get error message " cpg.exe has stopped working". We both are using version 2.01. I have reinstalled Gettysburg, also scanned by pc and Stuarts emailed files, no problems found by scan.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks
Alvin

Are you zipping the files?
Have you tried deleting the .xxx and .yyy files? I can't remember the full name of those pbem files.

Thanks Scott, will try your suggestions. We are beginning to think the problem is my opponent is downloading while traveling . He says the connections are terrible. He will try again when gets back home.

It sounds like you fellows are running different versions of the game to me. If you can each post a screenshot of what you see when you open your game and select "Help/About" I can tell you for certain whether that is the problem or not. As an alternate to posting the screenshot, you could email it to me instead.

the problem has been resolved, lets just call it pilot error and leave it at that.

Thanks for the help
