On desktop when playing Pocketwar and going back to the desktop by pressing Alt-tab or close window, returning to Pocketwar gives a locked black screen. Tryed it several times.

On Pocket PC it is OK.

Thanks Guy, I will run it down.

I upgraded to a new version of the graphics library it turns out that is a bug in it. I'm looking for a work around now.

I was able to find an answer for this. I am going to do a 0.98 build of Pocket War before I split off multiplayer. The 0.98 version will have the new graphics lib, and the new AIs (assuming everyone likes them) and a fix for this problem.

Tully, don't know if it is related to the new version, units don't follow straight order to enter a city if there are enemy units nearby. I the enemy units are in attack range, the units which are ordered to go to a city prefer to engage the enemy units and that way not obey to orders from their general!

Actions always override moves. If a unit is set to attack and there is an enemy near it will do that rather than than follow the move command (go to waypoint or go to city.) The exception is if you have a tracking waypoint on an enemy then it will only attack that one enemy and ignore others. I haven't changed this is the last couple of releases.

How are you sending your troops to the city with a waypoint or by setting their move type to "go to nearest city?" I could make it where if you send a unit to a city with a waypoint that it would override the move and have it do nothing but move. What does everyone think about that?

I've got Problems with the 1.0 beta on my pocket-pc (Pocket Loox / PPC 2002).
Whenever I want to start a new game, the sound will go but I got no picture (no map). The program seems to work, but - as said -no map. The background (the Menu) stays on screen.
I tried software reset, but no result.

Hi Myra,

So you make it as far as the menu but when you try and start a new game that is when it hangs? Does it show you the generating map messages or does it hang before then? Also are you starting a small map? If so can you try and start a med or large map and see if it has the same problem?
