Interesting bug - in v1.00 w/hotfix, playing Scen 44 against Soviet AI.

Soviets run first turn.

1) I start by moving German div in Helsinki by naval transport to Konigsberg.
2) I then proceed around the map to reactivate some units, while the game is still in naval transport mode (I don't know if this matters or not).
3) I spend about 45 APs out of 50.
4) I then changed to F1 move mode. The option to undo appears.
5) I hit undo - the German div moves back to Helsinki, but, at the same time my admin points go to 50.

I suspect, this may be true on admin points for reactivate in other undo requests as well although I haven't noticed.

I have a save if required.

Edit to above - it is the same in other modes. I just reloaded my game, moved one unit by tac move mode (F1). I then reactivated a bunch of units and voila, *hit the undo button, and my admin points went back up to 50.

Are you sure you are spending admin points by transfering support units and HQs? it sounds like you are spending movement points (MPs), and these are re-appearing when you hit undo. your current APs can be seen in the top right corner of the screen.

I am not transferring units and HQs or spending movement points. I am reactivating units that start the scenario (44) in static mode. It is APs that are going down - yes, they are listed in the top right corner. A typical 44 German inf division on the front takes about 6 APs to "reactivate".

And, I can still make back to the initial admin points by spending them all, moving a unit, and then hitting the undo move button.

That's a nasty bug. Obviously a major exploit that shouldn't be taken advantage of. I'll get it on our bug list and we'll fix it. Thanks for the report.

Thanks Joel. Agreed - I discovered it by mistake. I think I have a save of it if you need one although my guess is one can recreate it at any point.
