    All,

    Please ensure all league matches are played using Legendary Edition currently.

    BB Manager is NOT working for Chaos Edition yet, even for existing teams. Attempts to load Chaos Edition replays will not work.

    To ensure you are able to replay, please stick to Legendary Edition for league matches at present.

    My legendary Edition wont let me play currently! It updated fine, but every time I attempt a match I get net synch errors!

    replay files can be copied over from CE to LE, then watched, then uploaded to BBM as
    a workaround if necessary.

    Hey Gallows, do you know if someone has contacted the BBManager admin whatwashisname (Superjc or something) to see if he is updating it?

    Yeah, have tested workaround myself (working if neither team are Chaos Edition specific, which is fine for Crunch Cup X).

    Can we get a walkthrough for the terminally challenged such as myself? I'm downloading the update now...

    That means LE who have gone CE still need to do the update.

    If you do play a Crunch Cup match using Chaos Edition instead of Legendary Edition, in order to upload to BB Manager you will need to:

    1. Copy the replay from your Chaos Edition saved games to your Legendary Edition saved games.

    2. Watch the replay in single player mode.

    3. Upload to BB Manager immediately after watching the replay.

    As noted, this is only going to work for non-CE teams (ie not for Underworld, Chaos Dwarves or Khorne), but there aren't currently any in Crunch Cup X.

    Hopefully there will be a new version of BB Manager before Crunch Cup XI. I have emailed the creator to try and find out.

    Do you have to watch the whole replay, or is it enough to just load the game then quit out?

    Watch whole replay (just fast forward thru the game with the + key)

    As Lebe notes, to generate a full log, you have to watch it through to completion, sadly.

    In better news, BBM creator SuperJC is responding to emails and I am arranging to supply him with file structure details for the new Chaos Edition logs, as well as details of the changes, so hopefully we will see a new version.

    Thanks for the walkthrough. I get it now... for some reason I was thinking that CE was an extension of LE and not a seperate game. interesting...

    Thought the same until I noticed I had zero replays and a new desktop icon.

    Seems like a strange decision to make it a separate game.

    Maybe they are looking to not overcharge people by forcing them to buy LE?
    seperate game appeals to more new players and makes it easier to get into it.

    but... that would make sense... :confused:

    BBM is updated now.

    Haven't tried uploading from CE though.

    Wow that was fast. Automatic update or is there a link for a new download of BBM?

    When you start BBM it will ask you if you want to update.

    Even if you answer "yes" you might have to start it again to finally update it, but after that it's working nicely for me again. (Except that I need to try to upload something to CE ;))

    Wow, I only heard back from SuperJC this morning, but he seems he got hold of some of the files via someone else while I was at work and fixed it in the mean time.

    Only thing right now is it still doesn't appear to recognise the new races, or in fact read the team names from the new Chaos Log, I've emailed to see if there's any help that can be given.
