Attached is a game save for Global War. It is a new turn and impulse 1 for Axis. Game will not progress past DOW against major powers. Once Japan clicks ok (no one is declaring war), the game simply stops.

You are in July/Aug 1940, so you have been playing this game for a half dozen turns.

I therefore assume that this isn't a lack of experience problem.

I'll try to reproduce the problem using my computers tomorrow.

I ran your saved NetPlay game and it advanced the phases from DOW majors to DOW minors and then to Neutrality Pacts, all of which is correct. Both computers advanced to the Neutrality Pacts phase cleanly.

The non-phasing player doesn't have anything to do during all of that. The phasing computer sends the non-phasing computer messages about the phase changes so the computer memory about the game status matches on both computers.

I really have no idea what the problem was when you played this. My only suggestion is for you to send a copy of your saved game to the other player and have him replace his copy of the saved game with yours. That way you will know that both computers start with the same "game state/data".

Let me know if the problem persists.


The last time I made changes to the code for DOW Majors phase was on October 5th 2019 and that was just to add one line of code to make sure US Entry Chits button was being shown on the form.

This worked! I guess the non-phasing player's file was corrupted. Yes, I have lots of experience with WIF and recently with MWIF. Sure would be nice to have a combination of keys (e.g. CTRL-ALT-DEL) that can kick the game to move when it gets stuck. Any thoughts on that?

Thank you so much for helping us on this. Greatly appreciated.
