1) Select "Multiplayer" from the main menu.
2) If the game asks for a username and password, it should be the same as the one you use to log on to this forum.
3) Click on the "My Challenges" tab.
4) Click on the "New Challenge" button.
5) Either pick one of the available historical scenarios or click on the "Create Skirmish" button and set the skirmish parameters the same as for SP.
6) Click on the "Create" button.

After a few seconds your challenge should appear in the list for the "My Challenges" tab.

To set up email notifications, go to www.slitherine.com, click on "My page", set PBEM++ to Yes.

You should then receive an email notification when the challenge is accepted and when it is your turn. There may be a slight delay before the email is sent, however, so you can see the current status of the challenge by looking in "My Challenges" until it has been accepted, and after that in "My Games" > "My Turn" or "Enemy Turn" tabs.

If you have any difficulties post here again.

You issue challenges within the game.

1) In the main menu of the game, click on the "Multiplayer" button.
2) A dialogue box will appear asking you to sign in. Sign in with the same username and password that you use on this board. (Enter your game serial number first if it asks you to).
3) Click on the "My Challenges" tab.
4) Click on the "New Challenge" button.
5) Either a) Pick a historical scenario and click on the "Create" button.
Or b) Click on the "Create Skirmish" button. Set up the parameters of the Skirmish. Change the campaign if you don't want the challenge to use the default Thirty Years War campaign. Click on the "Create" button. Then click on the "Create" button in the next screen that appears.

You will have set up a challenge that anyone can accept. If you wait a few seconds it will appear in the list under the "My Challenges" tab.
