From: on a mountain in Idaho
Today has been a horrible day trying to get e netplay game going. Bill and I have seen some weird stuff happening that we have never seen before.
We finally after 5 months of him playing the Axis switched sides. We started up a global war campaign with the 2.7.1 patch.
On the first game we got all the way to the Polish setup when the game never gave Bill the option to align the Polish and skipped that setup altogether. We tried loading a savegame, but it wouldn't let us setup the Poles, so we restarted.
The second game we set up, when we got to the Japanese I had an internet failure. So we reloaded back to the French setup, advanced to Japanese and I had the yellow nat Chinese tray with Jap units in it. We tried reloading other saves but the game kept thinking I was the allied player, so we restarted again.
On the third game we got past the Polish setup and did the weather and initiative. While on Axis port attack, all of a sudden the game advanced several phases to the ground support phase (neither of us touched the keyboard or mouse), then within a couple minutes it locked up and on to game 4.
Both of us are getting pretty tired but pushed on only to have game 4 have another odd issue, during Jap setup, I placed a cvp onboard a carrier but decided to move that carrier plus plane to a different port. When I did the move, only the plane moved and then tried to land on a carrier in that new port. So doing that I found that the original carrier still had the cvp as well as the new carrier. Game crashed went on to game 5.
Game 5 we got thru Polish setup, weather and initiative only to have the game advance again multiple phases on its own and when reloading a savegame, again thought I was the allied player.
Sooo, after 5 tries, and 4 1/2 hours of the day wasted, we gave up. Neither Bill nor I have seen these issues before today, the only thing we have done different is change sides.
