Having issues saving a game

Post by Tex01532 » Thu Apr 18, 2019 3:58 pm

Whenever I try to save a game (on Mac) right when I start typing the save box disappears. I’m currently only able to load the auto saved game.

Any fixes to this?

The latest MAC OS version (High Sierra I think) messed up the old Java input boxes. That is why we introduced automated passwords based on your PC or MAC ID's. This way the code won't ask for you to create a password and you can play PBEM games. I think it's the same with save games.

You just use the automated save game name and then rename it outside the game. I have a PC myself so I can't answer the details. Pk867 can answer MAC issues.

The above example is just what can be expected when the basic game was created in old Java 1.4.2. That is also the reason we decided to stop working on GS v4.0. The Java version is simply too old. The good side is that it opens for Slitherine to create a new WW2 strategic game on a modern code because CEAW and GS v4.0 have shown the market is there.

Well when is a modern version of a WWII game for the MAC scheduled to appear?
