Vincent MacLaren had hopes the war would be over...

When the Star League came to subjugate the Taurian Concordat, every able-bodied Taurian was called to serve--even retirees like Vincent MacLaren, who had to leave behind his family...

I keep getting a "There was an error opening this document.  There was a problem reading this document" error from Adobe Acrobat when I try to open the pdf, even after I redownload it.

The print PDF works fine though.

I got the same error opening the file in Adobe Reader.  I opened though in Preview (Mac PDF reader) and it opened fine.  I then saved a copy in Preview, and the copy I created opens fine in Adobe Reader (my default PDF viewer).  This is strange, usually Preview doesn't display my Catalyst PDF files properly and Adobe Reader does!   

My suggestion to BattleCorps/Catalyst/Battletech,etc:  Always test your PDF files in both Mac Preview and Adobe Reader before releasing them, to ensure that all your paying customers can view them.  Saves us the work of fixing the files ourselves.   :)

I've let Jason know about this problem. Hopefully it's a quick fix. It does open okay in Mac Preview, iBooks, and Safari (although I don't have a PC version of Safari to test at the moment). If you have any of those, give them a whirl.

No problems with it now.
