is it possible to add encryption while playing a grand campaign? I can do it playing single battles but cant seem to get it working with the campaign.

No there never was the ability to do so....would be nice, but think it might cause issues.....don't recall the exact reason.

It has to do with carrying over causalities, etc from scenario to scenario, from within campaign. With encryption, that feature would not work.

A password for each side would still be helpful even without encryption. Every once in a while someone sends me the campaign file forgetting they haven't made their move on that game. I sometimes catch that it is asking to replay the wrong side but sometimes I just click without reading and see their side.

A password would stop any chance of this. It would also put some level of security since you couldn't just run the other sides turn to see what he is up too. Unencrypted files could still be looked at with notepad but if someone is doing that they need medical help. And, I am sure they could look through the file to find your password in it.
