Here's the first one (the first one that doesn't result from my addleheadedness).
I got sent a file that substituted underscores for spaces: Game 4 PL vs LS.ord came to me as Game_4_PL_vs_LS.ord . Okay, I should have noticed, but I didn't. So I process the turn, and send the files. We do it again, and by now the player is noticing that none of his orders are going through! It took a few looks, but I figured it out. Once I removed the underscores, the ORD file worked fine.
Anyone know a fix for this player's machine, which changes the file names?

On a second matter: Those of you currently playing should realize that RC7 has somewhat restricted "heavy" builds west of the Mississippi, as well as infantry/militia builds in areas not very loyal to you.
If someone wants to summarize those build changes in a short post here, it would be most helpful!!!

Late April 1862
USA - VPs: 727, NM: 61
CSA - VPs: 1199, NM: 128
The CSA has taken most of southern Missouri in an early, aggressive and powerful campaign on that front, and captured St. Louis sometime in late 1861. The USA decided to invade Kentucky and the state is fairly evenly split and hotly contested by both sides. In the east, the Confederacy continues to hold Manassas and Fredericksburg, but the Union has captured Norfolk and has units at the gates of Richmond. Finally, the two sides continue to battle in small-scale amphibious invasion of southern Georgia.
Overall, I'd say the score very poorly reflects the character of the game so far. Durk has been playing a very aggressive and multi-focused strategy and (in my inexpert opinion) got unlucky on a few battles. Moreover, despite his now somewhat precarious NM position, he has denied charles a killing blow by keeping him on edge in several places. In turn, charles clearly knows the CSA very well and has famously defended it into 1866 (http://www.ageod-forum.com/showthread.php?t=22871). The speed and strength of his Missouri campaign simply astounded me, being someone who has only played a few games against the AI.
Both these guys are truly masterful players to be watching, and I've learnt a whole lot from being able to peek in on their game!
