I've recently started a HPS PBEM Campaign and it both of our first PBEM campaigns'. I haven't been able to locate really any info in the help file or the manual on Campaigns, just the scenarios. My biggest question has to do with the .bto and .btc files that are generated. We have only been Emailing the .cpf files back and forth and it seems to be working but it seems strange that the program would generate these other two files for no reason. Does anyone know what they are for? Any other tips or suggestions for PBEM campaigns would be appreciated as well. Thank you in advance.

BTC is a file extension associated with Becker Tools Compressed Archive, BTO is a file extension associated with Baytex Organix! 2001 Language Kit. Not sure exactly what they do but you can ignore them and just use the cpf file.

For emails only the cpf file is needed. The others are used by the campaign game (not the battle) to carry forward information about losses, fatigue, leaders, etc. The game can generate them from the cpf file but I am not sure it carries all the information in these other files.

And I was just wondering about this very issue in my first campaign game, I wasn't sure if I was suppossed to send all the files or not. So I stumbled on this post and my question has been answered. It's like when you are thinking of a movie you havn't seen in a long time and you come home and "BAM" its on TV!

Cheers!
