Viewing Multiplayer Game after Submission - 3/23/2016 2:13:48 PM

I'm playing my first multiplayer game via the multiplayer server. I just submitted my first turn to the server and am awaiting my opponent's response turn. In the meantime, I thought I'd look over the position at the end of my turn, but I can't figure out how to load the game from that spot.

Is that possible to do? I can see it on the multiplayer server, but it won't let me load it while my opponent's turn is in progress.

Thanks for any help,
-Mark R.

It's not possible I'm afraid, once you hit the end turn button the game transfers to you opponent, just like a PBEM would so you will need to wait on your opponent.

Thanks Manstein.

Is there a work-around for future turns? For example, would it be possible for me to save the turn locally before I end the turn thereby submitting it to the multiplayer server? ... or something like that?

This is the huge disadvantage of server vs PBEM

All you can do is to take screenshots before ending turn.

Okay... gotcha.
Thanks for the responses.

One more thing... does WitW have the same issue, or is it "fixed" there?
