Cloning bug

Hi, I am having a problem when using keyboard shortcuts on all Vassal modules, seemingly at random, when I am using a shortcut, (CTRL + > to rotate for example) it will create a duplicate of the piece. This even happens with pieces that do not have the clone trait and does not happen all the time.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Mark

check all your prototypes for clone traits as well

Does this only happen online? Which Vassal version?

I am using the latest version of Vassal, latest version of Java, OS Windows XP SP3. I have not used Vassal online I have mostly been playing SPQR solitaire.

I don’t know how to do this?

Thanks for the replies,

Mark

Sorry, Mark, I have never ever seen or heard of this, so I don’t know how much help I can be. Maybe try to narrow the behavior down to certain pieces or keystrokes or certain modules, if possible?

Also, do you have the problem with Java 1.6.x? Verify the version of Java with Help → Show Error Log from the Module Manager.

I have the problem in all the modules I use,

SPQR 1.0
Flying Colors
Musket & Pike
Infidel
VLNL: World Championship

In SPQR it happens while rotating, increasing cohesion hits, marking as moved, marking as reduced and about facing. All these commands require you to hold down CTRL + another key… eg < > [ ] M F / .

The same happens in all the listed games albeit with differing keystrokes.

My Java Version is 1.6.0_31
My Vassal Version is 3.1.18

Thanks,

Mark

Both copies are fully functional? They can be dragged separately, they respond to keystrokes when selected? Does the duplicate appear in exactly the same place as the original? Does this happen on another computer?

Yes to all but the last, I have not tried it on another computer.

Thanks,

Mark

I can’t reproduce this. Is it something you can trigger reliably?
