You have to shut down the TWGS server, go to the command center, select the game you want to import/export, and select the pull down menu under archives and follow the instructions.  If there are gold features in the .twa file you need to be sure to check all the boxes in the gold settings.

Hi, this doesn't work for me. Any more hints? Are we supposed to rebang after doing this, or what? What are all the steps required to get a TWA running? After importing, how do I tell if it worked? Nothing changes after I import, even though I check all the boxes. If I start tw, then whatever game was existing keeps going. If I rebang, I get default trade wars, not the TWA I just imported.

If you can wait one more day, I'm almost done the tutorial I am working on that deals with importing/exporting edits. I'll have it posted on our web site and can PM you once it's done.

I have not read it yet , but wanted to point out that You the sysop have to make an ANSI folder next to the Gold under the TW folder your game is at before exporting , just incase
the edit has ansi files for in game info.
