5. Once you’ve clicked on the file, it will ask you to save it to your computer do this,
- Save it anywhere you want, but the DEFAULT folder tripleA loads games from is c:\users\yourname\triplea\savedgames, If you get lost here, just take your time, try saving the file to your desktop if it makes your life easer.
6. Start up TripleA
7. Click LOAD SAVED GAME
-Find the game you just downloaded, and click open
8. Click Start PBEM (Play-By-Email/Forum) Game
