cards dissapears, the reappers

Postby cemoreno » October 30th, 2020, 5:30 pm

I've noticed this lately in several vassal modules (for example Down in Flames 2.0).

I "play a card" (Send to -> some Card Deck) which goes to a different window. I have that window open, floating over the main map. But I cannot see the card, it just disappeared from my hand and it's gone. Until I click on the floating window where the card it's supposed to be. Poof! The moment I click that window, the card appears. Probably it was there all the time, but I can't understand the trick.

Why does this happen?

Are you playing on Linux, by any chance? I use Linux (Kubuntu 20.04), and I've noticed that windows usuallly don't get refreshed when they're not active. Hasn't annoyed me enough to file a bug report about it, yet....

Lately more windows than linux. Happened to me on both systems;

Yesterday both me and my friend experienced this, both of us on w10, vassal 3.4.7.

Is this something you can reproduce reliably? If so, can you suggest a module and provide minimal steps for that?

Wild Blue Yonder 1.0 vassal module.

http://www.vassalengine.org/mediawiki/i ... r_1.0.vmod

When one player plays a card from his hand (after the first one, which seems to work fine) the "Play Cards Board" window won't automatically update for the second player.
