Evening!

I've just returned to this timeless game to prepare for an epic stars game of 10min turns with some friends this coming weekend... and have found I can't remember my password to any of my racefiles, let alone my prior games.

Help!

Does anyone know how I can retrieve these passwords? Game starts soon, and I'm trying frantically to prepare today.

Any help appreciated!!

Mr K

It would be easier for you to resubmit your race and get the universe regenerated, if the game has still not started.

The alternative is most likely an exercise in futility.

That's good to hear.... though loosing an old collections of race files is often a blessing in disguise... and I'm speaking from experience Confused .
Hope to see you around on some SAH games as well Smile.

I've been bitten by this before. Now, I have an admin file that I keep in the game folder. It contains all relevant passwords (.r file, game files (if different), SAH upload password, etc.)
