Q: What file stores the data I create in the CoCGMS?
A: CoCGMSv2.fmp12 is the data file. All game data you create is within this file.
Q: What format is the CoCGMSv2.fmp12 file in?
A: The system data file is a FileMaker Pro v12 data file. If you have a full copy of FileMaker 12 you can open this file up as a standard FileMaker database.
Q: Can I just send my CoCGMSv2.fmp12 file to another person who has a copy of the CoCGMSv2 and they can put it into their copy of their local CoCGMSv2 install?
A: Yes. The CoCGMSv2 database file is branded with a key that will only let it be opened by another copy of cocgmsv2.exe or a full FileMaker install. You can send your copy of CoCGMSv2.fmp12 to anyone else who has a copy of the utility.
Q: I have a copy of FileMaker but it isn't FileMaker v12. Can I still use the CoCGMSv2 database with that?
A: No. FileMaker 12 is the most recent release of the FileMaker line and the fmp12 file format is new to v12. No previous version of FileMaker can open an fmp12 file.
