better now, but still not crystal clear. Here it is what happened:
I am NOT the phasing power here.
I save the battle file I received from Austria (Austria is the phasing maj power attacking me)
in the Battle folder.
I load the .sav game, and it is Austria Land Turn, if I click on the battle area (Tripoli in my case) nothing happens (indeed attacking troops are not there), so I ask the land file to Austria, the phasing mj power.
Now I load the phasing maj power land file and Austrian troops are in Tripoli attacking me.
The PC says is now Austrian land battle turn, I click on the battle area and the battle screen appear.
I chose my chit, dices for the first combat turn of the first day are rolled.
Now it seems I have to send the .battle file back to Austria, the attacking phasing maj power.
Then, I guess, he will finish the battle and send out the land combat file to everyone...
a) Are we doing right?
b) In your first post you said that neither the land nor the land combat files are exchanged
during combats, and that they are both written after the combat ends, but this seems to be
inaccurate. I guess the right sequence should be
1. Phasing maj power does land phase, he send the land file out to everyone. It is now combat
2. Phasing maj power starts the combat and choses his chit; .combat file is sent to the
defending maj power. He clicks on the combat area, does his stuff and sends back the combat
file to the phasing maj. power.
3. At the end of the combat, the phasing maj. power end his land combat file and send it to all
the other players.
So the land file is sent out to everyone before combat(s) starts and only
the land combat files are written after the combat(s). Can you confirm this is right?
c) If it is right, why I could not finish the day and send back the battle file to the phasing
power after the first turn? No more choices are to be done before the end of the day, and this
looks like further slowing down...
