Twilight Struggle3.10a with 2 very serious bugs!!!

Postby yalu » July 18th, 2011, 11:57 am

the lastest module of Twilight Struggle is 3.10a, but I find 2 very serious bugs, and a Spanish friend also find the bugs.

The first is that when SALT event is played, player can't get all discards pile to choose one card, he can only choose one card from a little discards, according to the rule, it is wrong.The bug appears everytime when I play.

the second is that cards pile and dealing cards is seriously confusing, strange and wrong. When I play with a Spanish friend, he get Central American Score 3 times, and the "wargame" card appear 3 times. We even get "bear trap" card in the same turn,namely there is 2 "bear trap" at that time.We can't believe our eyes, we think the bug is the system of dealing cards and discard cards

I have heard of this bug before but it's very difficult to track down because it's extremely rare and I still have no idea what causes it. Does it do this for you consistently? Can you think of any other strange things that are happening? Are you and your opponent using the same version?

Do you have VASSAL language preference to a language other than English?

My english is not good, but I also choose English vision,because Vassal doesn't include my mother tongue,and it is sure that some of my friends use english vision when we meet "SALT" card bug because "SALT" card bug appear everytime,but it is not sure that spanish friend uses which language.

The reason I ask is that the only time I've heard of this bug was when
anyone had set the language preference to something other than English.
I've tried it in French and nothing strange happened. I can't think of a
reason why it would make a difference, but I could never replicate the bug
so I've been trying several strange things.

I'm on vacation at the moment, but I have kept your message in my inbox so I
can take another look at this bug when I return home.

Just played a game in which my US opponent was unable to play Chernobyl during the headline phase of turn 10.
I can't really give more details since it wasn't me, but I do have a savegame of that point.

Was the language preference set to anything other than English?

Hi. I was playing TS live tonight with the the lastest deluxe edition mod and ran into a different problem than the ones described above. We were midwar at the end of a turn when the mod told us that my opponent lost the game because he didn't play Africa Scoring. The mod said he held the scoring card in his hand at the end of the turn, but my friend said he didn't have any cards in his hand. I looked at the soviet hand button on the nav bar and it said he had nine cards in his hand (impossible since we had just finished a turn). Has anyone else encountered this?
