After having just got the game installed and starting to fool around with it, i would say that i would like to see a pop-up window during the reinforcement phase that would tell me what reinforcements i have coming. I know i can find the information but it would be handy to have it pop-up for me.

A more complicated version would have a list of eligible corps, and allow you to reinforce the corps from the pop-up.

If you click on your home country it will tell you what YOU have that phase. Also, in the country info box (that you can open) you can move from month to month and it will tell you what you have coming up next.

The problem for me is this: I can't find out what free state has what coming. Lots of times I try to end my reinf phase and it keeps telling me I have troops to place but it doesn't say where so I have to go free state by free state to find out.

Marshall, the info for free states is listed all lumped together at the end of the major power factors available. If you have two or more free states, you can't tell them apart. In fact, you can't even tell WHICH free states have stuff coming.

While we are on the subject, I mentioned this quite a while back, but it seems to have been forgotten:

When in econ, it is very easy to forget to use all of ones manpower, or even to attend to a free states economics. I think there should be a warning box that come up: It would warn that a country (major power or free state) has some manpower left that has not been spent, and then ask whether it's OK to proceed.

No, you're right. You did mention it. It's not in Mantis but I do have this recorded.

It wasn't critical (although, I got to build my British boys the last turn only because the host was nice and went to a backup). Potentially losing my boys reminded me of it.

If I get a chance and don't lose my mind, I'll add it into Mantis.
