You are totally misunderstanding the point about sides.
A side is still a side, pbem (log files) or live. You cannot expect what
you are doing to work properly testing by yourself without retiring from
the side you own before you are allowed to take ownership of another
side. That is the root of your problem

You would send your opponent the log file. The log file includes all the
recorded moves / information that has occured since starting that they
would want to see happen. A save file is just a static snapshot at the
point and time it was created of the game state
