In the first reinforcement phase, the Polish gets one infantry, however with Warzaw being the only city unconquered, I cannot place it anywhere.

If you are playing with off-city reinforcements, which I assume you do in this case, you can only place these in an adjacent hex to a city you already control that is not in an enemy ZOC (section 4.2 of the RAC). From your map I cannot see any legal hexes where Poland would be able to put down reinforcements, so the programme does as it should according to the rules (as I understand them). Reinforcements that cannot be placed should go on the spiral for next turn.

You are right, but this is the third report of this bug and the bug is that the unit will not go to the spiral and the reinforcement phase cannot continue. The game cannot be progressed from this point.

I just posted the same problem with the Switzerland units.

Hey paulderynck, where in Canada are you?

Yup, but as Paulderynck states, they do not go to the spiral, so the game is stuck as I am unable to place the unit, and without placing it, I cannot proceed.

Exactly what my problem is.

It seems that this is indeed a problem for minor countries at least. When the same happen to me as USSR I always get a popup saying that there are no legal hexes for <insert MIL unit here> and that it will go into next turn's reinforcements.

Perhaps the programming routine that controls this struggles with the fact that minor countries do not have their own force pools?

Version 1..0.8.0 should fix this problem. If it doesn't, please let me know.

I still have this problem.

Playing global war solitaire and Im stuck nov/dec 1940 when I cant place a romanian HQ during replacements cause Bucharest is already full with 2 land units.

I started this game BEFORE latest patch though.......... (maybe back at 1.06)

So I should restart game?

I think I have fixed this problem. It took me all day Saturday to rewrite the code for placing units on the map (at any of the various times that might happen) but every saved game I have collected about this problem now correctly handles if and where arriving units (e.g., setup, reserves, reinforcements) can be placed. If you attach a saved game with this problem to a post in this thread, I'll test that saved game just to make sure.
