CM Helper 1.7.3 - CMFB support - available

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Ive tracked this down a bit more. So the incoming file definitely appears in the dropbox shared folder correctly but doesn't get transferred to the games incoming folder. If i do that manually it comes up fine..

Do this when when your opponent has sent you a turn and it is waiting in the Dropbox folder:

For the games that are not transferring files try deleting or moving all the game files for those game out of the Incoming Email and Outgoing Email folders, or whatever the Mac equivalents are. Then go to Game → Add Game menu to tell CM Helper where this game is - point it at the game file in the Dropbox folder and tell CM Helper what game type it is.

If you have already done this then disregard.

A couple questions about using CMH (I'm just now going to look for my first PBEM opponent):

1) If I am partially through assigning commands for a turn and save, will this send the partial turn to my opponent? How can I periodically save before sending?

2) Normally when I play I make two saves for each minute of play. One save is all of my unit commands, which I save right before clicking the red button to continue. The other save is the replay of that turn (I click save immediately after the replay of the action has finished), so I can re-watch it later on. Will this confuse CMH?

Thanks! :-)

<Snip>  How can I periodically save before sending?  <Snip> 

I often make several saves during a big setup.  Below is my method that I learned from @IanL

Click on Menu / Click Save / When the file name appears add _save.

Example: MOSvsaxxe 004 change it to MOSvsaxxe 004_save.

Click OK on the file name window.  You can quit the game now if you want and come back to it later. 

When you want to send click the big red button and then back space over: _save 

This will leave the original MOSvsaxxe 004  Then click OK.

Have you tried running CMHelper Reset?  I think Microsoft is pushing out patches to Win10 this week and next.  Sometimes that corrupts CMHelper until reset.  Go to URL = http://gregories.net/CMHelper/User Manual/CMHelper.html

Here is the "Recovery after crash" instruction.  Good luck and let us know what solved your problem.

 

Occasionally, if you have a crash of your computer, it will leave CMH in a state where it can't run anymore.

To recover from this, you need to do one of two things.  Either:

a.  Run CMH from a command prompt with the reset-state option

 DOS>  cmh.exe reset-state

 OSX>  ./cmh.app reset-state

or

b. Delete CMH's AppState.txt file

At the top of the log window (Options->Show Log Window) CMH tells you where the log file is stored - the AppState.txt file is in the same place.   If you can't access the log file, you will need to search your disk for AppState.txt.

Under Windows it is usually in a place like:  

C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\GreenAsJade\CMHelper\

Under OSX it is usually in a place like:  

/Users/username/Library/Application Support/GreenAsJade/CMHelper/

Hey guys.  I am running CMH version 1.7.5 on my Mac and I have never had a problem until now.  If you look at the attached photo, I have the "Block Busting at Bokruisk" battle waiting 17882 days.  This is not even a battle that I am running.  I cannot get rid of it.  I have tried the normal fashion many times, trying the "End Game" option, but it will not clear.  Before I submit a bug issue, does anyone have a solution.  Cheers
