Ok, thanks to ur detailed report, and your "It didn't happen in the earlier betas", I could locate the bug after a little hour of fighting to follow it...
>> then 3 weeks later I get told that I have failed with his contract
yup, that's why I suspended the link for a while...
To debug the "end of contract bug", i reduced it to 3 weeks instead of 52, and forgot to restore it before to release the new version...
@Tennis Helmut :
U still didn't buy the game, right ? (what are u waiting for ..?!?
So I guess it means u installed the Beta over the Alpha, which contained a key which is not valid for the Beta. But it doesn't create other trouble, it just stays in demo mode.
===> Version updated and back online...
Unfortunately, it's possible there's still some troubles with double partners, maybe they can go to play on other single tournaments at the same time than playing double with your players... If u notice that, thanks to let me know (I don't have the brave to test it by myself right now, i'm too tired
I also extended the delay to book tournaments from 3 to 4 weeks. (still to handle trouble with double partners)
