So, after my previous OOTP difficult I got a new license key, but when I try to download/export OOTP it doesn't work. I deleted all the old files and downloaded the new ones so now my game file is current, but I can't export (I get a 201 Connect Error) and when I click on download latest league file it says that it can't open archive file.

201 is usually an internet connection error. Try grabbing the last gm_accounts file (in this thread?) @njherdfan

Hi all, annoying noob here. I'm on a Mac and for some reason, I cannot load Brewster in OOTP20.

I got through steps 1-4 in the first post, and then with this step:
5. Open OOTP 20, load Brewster, and then close OOTP 20.

That is where I got stuck. I open OOTP 20, but Brewster doesn't exist in the game even though it plainly does in my "saved_games" folder. I'm flummoxed as to what I could be doing wrong.

I've tried looking on the OOTP forums and that was no help. Could anyone nudge me in the right direction?

Probably a MAC thing, I think the instructions were for a PC. Needs somebody with a MAC?

Hey John,

Make sure the name on the file in saved games has the .lg at the end.That ensures it will appear in the list.

It should look like this.

Thank you! Unfortunately I do have the .lg suffix on mine and it does not show up in the list. I even changed it to lowercase like it appears in the photo here, and no dice.
