Unable to connect to PBEM server since update

Post by nick_the_ninja » Sat Jul 13, 2019 3:35 pm

Hi,

After the recent update I'm no longer able to connect to the PBEM server.
I get "connection Error" and "The server has not yet been updated to support your version of the game".
The main screen also now has "BETA VERSION" in large letters (and I'm definately not opted-in to the beta version).

I am running the Steam version of the game.
Thanks,
Nick

The steam version probably got updated to beta by mistake.
I think someone was in a hurry to publish a new beta version since the first one expired after a week.
If you have a regular Slitherine version you can install this (7.1.8 version) and continue any multiplayer games.

Thank you for your reply.
Yes, others on Steam are having the same problem - we've been pushed a beta version.
Gonna have to wait until Steam release a version that isn't beta (and is compatible with the PBEM server).
