I know this problem exists as well as I've seen it but it is hard to reproduce. Instead of trying to isolate an example, why can't the problem simply be circumvented by adding a step or something? Alter the format so that the Japanese player has to send the Allied player his "turn orders" prior to "running it" so that the Allied player can lock it and both then see the file. Kinda like having to launch keys for a nuke. I don't know, but there has to be some way to take the honour system element out of PBEM without slowing it to a crawl.
Anyway, I'd like to hear from those who play Japan. Fess up, have you ever rerun a turn until you were satisfied with the result?
only against the AI while teaching myself - i was trying to create the perfect turn 1 for the japanese - i dont mean great Pearl results just id do the pacific, run the turn, make sure everything went ok, then go back to the save and do all the stuff i wanted for the phillipines, wash rinse reapeat for all areas, within a turn or two of finally thinking id done everything the Pearl attack never launched, it was the weather over the KBs hex, never a problem before then, moved the KB 2 hexes east and all went well
