I now understand. My confusion arose because the behaviour of the Load Game dialog was not what I expected. The initial dialog shows ONLY the latest save for a specific game and it never occurred to me that the Restore button would launch another dialog to actually select an archive to be restored. The manual, to me at least, does not make this clear.

Assuming that the framework you're using supports it, may I suggest that you follow the standard Windows and Mac convention of putting three dots/periods after the word Restore on the button to indicate that the Restore button is not an immediate action button but one which displays another dialog. This alone would have eliminated my misunderstanding.

P.S. I've been getting "not delivered" on email I've sent you recently, including for older emails that I know you received (advanced game corruption due to a spotting error) since you replied to the email and fixed the bug.

I understand what the implications are when restoring an archive that doesn't represent the current game state, but my question (and I'm pretty sure the manual doesn't cover this) is how to restore anything other than the last archive, since the UI only shows that single file. Suppose I wanted to restore the latest archive minus 1, would deleting the latest archive work; i.e. the one I want to restore would now be the latest, or do I need to do something else.

Not sure if this is, as they say, a bug or a feature, but if multiple archives are created from the same game on OS X, only the latest one shows in the Load Game dialog, even though all the individual files show in the "archives" folder.
