sounds to me like some 32bit vs. 64bit issues with the score files.
There might also be some endianess issues, then.
Some users might want to share their home directory across different
archtiectures; they should be able to share their score files, too.

Even though I did not test Enigma on 64 bit architectures I did design all files in the userdata path "~/.enigma/" to be sharable between different architectures and OS's.

The bug report shows that Aaron did just copy the "enigma.score" file. But this file is married with the "state.xml" file. You have to backup/copy/share both. The best strategy is to share the complete folder.

All OS/architecture dependent preferences are stored in "~/.enigma.xml". This file contains just a few properties - and of course the reference to the user path itself. BTW the user path can be set in the Options menu to any path you like.

The error message "Mismatch of state.xml and enigma.score" occurs on a string compare. All architecture dependent errors should cause other messages.

@Aaron: if the problems still remain on the amd64 please delete the enigma.score - restart Enigma and send me "enigma.score" and "state.xml" for analysis purposes.

best regards,

- Ronald
