This is a game-breaker for PBEM using "hide enemy strength:" If you do not press the "OK" button after a turn is resolved, you are able to scroll around the map and examine everything, but from the enemy's perspective. You see their troop locations and strengths accurately, and yours are hidden as if you were them. Definitely a way to exploit the game.

I don't get what you're saying. Do you mean that you hit "End Turn" and when it asks for confirmation you instead cancel so that you can continue with your turn?

No. Maybe this screenshot will help. In the game from which this is taken, I am the CSA player and have just ended my turn. However, when I mouse over USA units, I can see their accurate strength and location as if I were the USA player.

Oh, I see what you mean. Thanks for pointing this out -- I wonder why I never noticed that...

Maybe you never had as strong a need to utterly crush your opponent as me and never looked as hard as I did for a way to cheat.

This one really hurts, because it just totally destroys the fog-of-war element in pbem.

lots of things destroy the fog of war right now especially in detail battles.

Thanks for the reports.  Just added code that should keep the obscuring rectangle in place and block the other info.
