How to setup a game?
Greetings,

How can you setup a game? (n00b question I know)

Live is ours, we life it our way!

RE: How to setup a game?
From the manual page 59:

EMAIL
Play by Email works exactly like Single-Player Turn-based play, except that
once a player completes their commands and actions, a special save game
file is generated. The player emails this file to their opponent who loads it on
their end, executes their commands, watches the results of the previous turn,
then saves a file and returns it to the first player.
Here is a more detailed explanation of the process:
1. You pick a Game and are prompted to create a password. This creates Game
file 01 which is stored as an Outgoing file. You will find this file in CM:BN/
Games File/Outgoing Email. You send this to your partner
2. Your Partner gets the 01 file and saves it in his Incoming Email Folder.
3. He starts game and finds file 01 in the Saved Game portion of the Opening
menu.
4. Partner puts in password and a new file 02 will be generated to be sent to
you.
By saving and swapping these files via email, the players advance the game
from turn to turn at a pace that the players can adjust to their liking. The
gameplay itself, i.e., the Action Phase, still takes place in real-time - just like in Turn-Based Single Player mode.

It isn't different because of the ladder ;)
But you might want to discuss the battle params. with your opponent,just to have it clear for both of you.But what you play and how you play it's all up to you.
