i sure have been getting a lot of them lately. breaking at my machine and at my opponent's machine. the only consistent thing is that the ones that break seem to be the ones that i am winning. what's up with that???

seriously, why so many breakages. can't this be fixed.

just for the record. the REPAIR button has worked one time and one time only.

I'm also interested to hear some explanation of why games "break," and what prevents this issue from being completely fixed. No response yet, though. Devs?

One way to break a game is to try and run MA under a limited account. Because the programmers, like most programmers, have taken lazy shortcuts and treat a moden OS like XP as though it were Windows 98, the game does all its work in the game directory. Therefore a limited account doesn't have the rights needed to keep games up to date, therefore those games promptly break.
