Ok, I am running the new patch .exe on both my home and work PCs ..

Some of the games seem to have downloaded to both machines and are ok, some are missing from one machine or the other (which ever PC it was NOT started on) and some are on both machines but out of sync -- so that when I do a turn, it gives me an error message on upload saying it can't save ..

Is any one else experiencing this problem? Is there something that can be done about this or is it not supposed to be played this way?

-Bill

I see that there are files in the "Save --> Net" directory that are named with the game # .. I wonder if I copy the missing ones to the other PC if that will "sync" them up?

Anyone have any idea how to sync up the ones that already show up on both machines?

MAN should autosync profiles on different PC when connected... it's a bug.
For now you can try to restore a game (anyone available) or a brocken one...

To be absolutely sure, when playing from multiple PC's - please, use "RESTORE PROFILE" EACH TIME (!!!!!!!!!!!!) you move from one PC to another one - in this case everything must be fine.

Yep, that seems to work just fine, thanks!

Is there any reason that is not done automatically? It would be much more intuitive that way I think.

Also, just a thought .. the password fields should be ***** instead of plain text I would think.

Thanks again!

Well .. It _seemed_ to work fine. However, when I restored the profile on my work PC after the weekend, All the games I "finished" are listed under the "Waiting for Turn" or "Current Games" tab!

Do I have to go through each game again to finish them or is it a "sync" issue again?
