Opening PBEM causes quit to Mac desktop

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what exactly causes this error. I assume that you're both runng v. 1.12 of CM. When your opponent emails the setup turn to you, in what form do you receive it: a compressed file or a plain text file ? If you receive it as a plain text file, then I would suggest that your opponent compress the file. This should prevent most types of corruption which could cause errors like you're seeing.
