Those dear departed have all...departed

Post by Fuzzy Wonky » Fri Sep 23, 2005 5:58 pm

I just witnessed something... cold :wink: :
About two hours ago, I tried to open CM to play. A little window popped up that said: ?RollOfHonour.dat file appears to have been copied from an earlier version and must be deleted?. Got out. Tried again, and again. Same thing. Eventually I could find no other way to access my favorite game than to click OK and now my Roll of Honour page is all empty. ?no dead or retired commanders yet?? Now I can?t open any of my Recent games for ?the commander is dead??
Fortunately, everything else is alright and none of my ships or custom missions has been lost (you can bet I saved copies of it all!!).

It does that so you can't send stuff to other people.

Still a bit strange that this happens all of a sudden without actually having done anything to the files.

The Kangaroo, you said it: very strange, assuredly. CM had always run on my computer without problem up until now.

Quorad, I ain?t sure I understood you well. In the case you were alluding to some illegal copy of CM on my hard disk:
- I regularly bought the game which Sean can easily verify and testify as he knows my name ;
- NEVER did I give any copy to anyone.

If you try and load the game as a non-admin user that will happen...

Just to tidy up what I said, I suspect a Power User won't get that problem.
