Community Scenarios not available on my home PC

I downloaded the community scenarios on my laptop and began a PBEM game (Auld lang Syne) with a friend. I wanted to continue it on my home PC, but I don't have the community scenarios available for download. (D/L button not visible at the top).

Any advice?

Re: Cannot connect to PBEM

I removed the exceptions for BA from both my firewall and from my virus protection. Rebooted and now it works! I did not re-insert the exceptions. I have no idea what the problem was nor how it is working at the moment - BA should be prohibited. Oh, well, I'll be using it regularly, so I'll pop back...

Re: Cannot connect to PBEM

No. I will try that and get back to you.

Would uninstalling and reinstalling the game be a possible fix? Since I bought it as a download, I would need your help in locating the install authorization code. Let me know

Re: Cannot connect to PBEM

I use AVG. I have been using it for about a year. I added BA.exe to the list of exceptions but it didn't make any difference. The firewall portion of the software is not in use. I tried temporarily disabling the AVG software (it has a function to do that, I presume just for this type of activity.) N...

Re: Cannot connect to PBEM

I checked my firewall settings. "C:\Program Files\Slitherine\Battle Academy\BA.exe" is listed in the allowed exceptions. There is also a checked box that should give me a message if a program is blocked. I have not seen any such message. I rebooted the computer and the DSL modem. No difference. I'm ...

Would downloading a scenario cause this to change?

Re: Cannot connect to PBEM

The game plays fine - just can't get to PBEM.

Out of my depth there. Can you give me a hint what I'm looking for and where?

Cannot connect to PBEM

(realized I originally posted in wrong forum - this is a re-post.) BA has stopped connecting for online play. Worked fine up to last week. I now get the message "playing offline" when starting the game, and if I try to connect I get the message "MISSING_IDS_CONNECTION_FAILED". I am able to access th...

Re: WW2 wargaming and tactics - a new book

Axis and Allies was my bridge from Squad Leader to computer gaming. It was the first game that my son and I both liked. (BTW we are regular opponents in BA)

Re: Manual Additions

I would like to see a list of ranges (in squares) for all weapons. For example, I don't know where to drop my mortar so that it'll reach that pesky AT gun but stay out of range of those infantry.

Re: Would like comprehensive manual

I've never contributed to a wiki, but I would like to try. As I discover things about certain "counters" (AFV, squad, weapon, etc.) I could add to a body of knowledge. Maybe you could grow a manual in that manner.

Would like comprehensive manual

As a veteran SSI board gamer from the 60s (Squad Leader and others) I really appreciate deep documentation on how a game works. I have read the on-line manuals and wikis for BA, but they strike me as "quick-start" type of documentation. (A Squad leader manual was 100 pages long!) I realize the with ...

How to change my password?

I had to ask for a new password (forgot!). :oops: Got the email with the new password. I was able to get back in to the board, but I can't find where to change my password to one I can remember. My search found one poster who said to use the "edit settings" button, but I sure can't find this. Little...

Re: new user - Battle Acad stuck at splash screen

I think I figured it out. I took my office computer home and it works. Must be something blocking it from getting out through the firewall.

Is it possible to play BA without connecting to the internet?

new user - Battle Acad stuck at splash screen

The website directed me to this forum for tech support. I am reluctant to post since my program is not even working yet, but I was not permitted to send a PM.. I purchased the program last night. I installed it on my home PC last night but did not run it. I installed it on my office PC this morning,...
