We are working on getting a new Public Beta out in the next couple of weeks, expressly for testing NetPlay.
Here is one of the recent changes that will be in that version that the beta testers liked:
January 20, 2016 - For NetPlay, added a Review Game button to the opening Splash Screen when restoring NetPlay games. The Review Game button is only visible for NetPlay games. Clicking on the button restores the game locally. That is, the program does not connect to the Internet. Instead, the player is able to review the state of the game, looking over the map and using other forms (such as the Pools form), to see how things stand. The player is not able to advance the game, since the End of Phase button is disabled. The purpose of this new capability is to enable players to study the current game situation and make plans. It is also useful for writing After Action Reports, letting the player take screenshots off-line, without requiring the other player(s) to be connected to the internet.
Perfection is an elusive goal.
