bug in Twilight-Struggle-Deluxe-3.0.10a

Hi all,

there’s a bug to do with the handling of the cards in TS-Deluxe-3.0.10a:
We were in round 6 when first, the soviet player wanted to play the ‘UN Intervention’ and the American Player claimed he had had the same card in his hand, but it just vanished. Then the same thing but vice versa happened with ‘Nixon Plays The China Card’: The American Player played it and the same second it vanished from the Soviet Player’s hand.

By that time, the count of cards on the icons up in the tool bar was different for the two players and wrong for each.

When the round ended, the game ended with an automatic American Victory, allegedly because the Soviet Player had the ‘South-America Scoring’ still in her hand. By that time, she thought she had no cards left…

There is clearly something wrong there…
If you could check on that (and let me know?) that would be great! (It’s a little anti-climatic to suddenly loose when you’re leading by 12 VPs ;-))

Our data was the following (sorry, it’s patchy, but then I’m pretty sure this isn’t to do with our hardware…):

Player 1 (Soviet):
Model: Acer Aspire One
OS: Linux, Ubuntu 10.04
Memory: 1 GB
Dual Core: Intel Atom CPU N270 1.6GHz

Player 2 (American):
OS: Windows 2000

Both Players:
Vassal 3.1.18
Module: Twilight-Struggle-Deluxe-3.0.10a.vmod

Yes, that does sound annoying.

Could you tell me if you had the language preference set to anything other
than English during the game? Either you or the other player?

Unfortunately, in all the games I’ve played, this has never happened to me.
You’re not the first person to report a problem with cards duplicating
themselves, but, because I’ve never seen it myself, it’s impossible for me
to track down. The only common factor in the few reports I’ve heard is
that the players in question were had set a language other than English in
the preferences. I have no idea what difference this makes, but that was
the only common thing I found. I have tried this myself, but still didn’t
see anything wrong.

Hi mkiefte,

thanks for the prompt reply! Yes, the American Player had the language set to German…
We’ll try again in English and hope all goes well then… ;o)

This problem has mystified me for a long time. Anyone have any ideas?
