How open cmg files?

Hi, somebody's sent me a cmg file, how do I open it?

A .cmg file appears to be a saved game file for Chessmaster. Does that sound likely?

Presumably it opens with Chessmaster, but possibly only at the appropriate place in the game. If you have Chessmaster, I suggest you look where othersaved games (ie .cmg files) are on your system, and put it ther with them - then see if it appears at the correct place in Chessmaster.

Its a strategy game file, I handle a dozen a day from play-by-email opponents as txt files with no hassle but for some reason this one arrived as cmg. I've contacted the guy about it but don't know when he'll reply, so in the meantime I thought I'd ask here how to open it.
I'm not familiar with Chessmaster whatever that is..

Try changing the file extension to .txt , as it usually is - and see what happens - you've got nothing to lose.

Perhaps the guy that sent it sent you the wrong file by mistake.

Okay panics over, somebody kill that klaxon.. :)
I just discovered the guy sent me a file for a game I don't even have without checking with me first,duh, no wonder my PC couldn't recognise it
